I don't recall a single care.

Squeaky swings and tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water's warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin

I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air
Then Labor day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin

On the night you left I came over
And we peeled the freckles from our shoulders
Our brand new coats so flushed and pink
And I knew your heart I couldn't win
Cause the season's change was a conduit
And we'd left our love in our summer skin

"Summer Skin" by Death Cab for Cutie.
Such a beautiful song.

    Blech, there's nothing much to say. I've shut the door again ^.^ Ew for it being ten at night and people being tired. Ew.
