about

'Goodbye Summer' is a personal farewell to a carefree youth and another evidence for the uprising era of bedroom producers, such as Peter The Human Boy's personal heros Mac Demarco, Ruban Nielson (Unkown Mortal Orchestra) and Kevin Parker (Tame Impala), all of which sparked Peter's curiosity on how it's possible to write, perform, record and mix all parts you hear on a record yourself.

Track Name: Wake Up On The Moon
I had the strangest dream last night
But now that I know the feeling
I know it feels right
Cause I’m feeling like
We could do whatever we want to
It’s up to me
It’s up to you
And I could pick you up and then we cruise
Turn up the car radio
Singin’ let me get loose
Until we’re tokin’ in the nighttime
At the beach and pretty soon
We would swim for the moon

Lift off into the night
Chasing dreams ’til I’m out of sight
I have a vision
Gotta make it a plan
I saw us dancin’ barefoot in the sand

Let’s go to sleep and wake up on the moon
Now that we’ve got the chance we can make it count
Up there we go round and round
No gravity tryin’ to hold us down

And in my dreams I wake up on the moon
Now that we fell in love we can make it count
Like the kids on the hill we need to get lost

Wake up on the moon
Now that we fell in love we can make it count
Like the kids on the hill we need to get lost
Track Name: Slow For You
I get around
The phantom of the town
Now and then I wish I was
Walking up a steady course like you
Oh no the boy ain’t got a clue
They say oh no
What’s that boy gonna do

The kids they wanna live so fast
Show it off and make it last
Day after day
Round and round
Now that they are chasing dreams that big
I’m guessing what you think of me is that
I’m too slow for you

Slow for you
Slow for you

I get around
The phantom of the town
I know at times you wish you were
A little less of you and more of me

I recall from an early day
The world would always turn my way
Round and round
And round again
Now that big names wrote their stories
I’m working on mine I’m sorry
If I’m too slow for you

Slow for you
Slow for you
Track Name: When We're Old
When we’re old
Oh baby keep my heart close
Just so I know
It can never turn cold

But baby don’t you go mad
For good lovin’ could always go bad
Let our hearts grow strong instead

When we’re old
Oh time will take its toll
And leave us bold
It’s a shame I know

But baby don’t you get scared
For good lovin’ could always go bad
Let our hearts grow strong instead
Older and older
I am fine with that
But don’t you get scared

Baby don’t you go mad
For we know that good love
Could always go bad
Let our hearts grow strong instead
Older and older
I am fine with that
But don’t you go mad
When we’re old
Track Name: Baby Blue Eyes
Starlit sky and bright lit streets
Hold on to my thoughts and memories
With every look around goes another piece
To everyone around I send one last greet

Don’t you break my heart when we go apart
Don’t you know I’m true to your

Baby blue eyes
Don’t tell me no lies
Baby blue eyes
Don’t look into mine
Baby blue eyes
Don’t tell me no lies
Baby blue eyes

Airplane seat
Don’t turn me down
Give me a smile
Bring me a town
Baby blue eyes and the man alone
Don’t bring me no cry
Just take me home

Don’t you know I’m true to your

Baby blue eyes
Don’t tell me no lies
Baby blue eyes
Don’t look into mine
Baby blue eyes
Don’t tell me no lies

Baby blue eyes
Don’t tell me no lies
Baby blue eyes
Look into the sky
See baby blue eyes
Don’t tell me no lies
Track Name: Getting Along Too Well
I’ve got a bad bad feeling
That makes me wanna flee
Wish I could crawl up on the ceiling
When you’re in the room with me

Cause I can see the issue
It ain’t hard to tell
We get along too well

See I found a love that is easy
I wanna keep it that way
Times may be rough but never ugly
That’s more than most can say

There’s nothing wrong with making friends
Trying to silence my conscience
But you and I know that would be a lie
So there is no use to pretend

The closer we get
The more trouble comes ahead
And I can tell
We get along too well

See I found a love that is easy
I wanna keep it that way
Times may be rough but never ugly
And I’ve seen enough to say that
I’ve got a girl
She’s the sweetest
I don’t wanna loose her taste
To any other just to prove that
I can could turn it all to waste

See I found a love that is easy
I wanna keep it that way
Times may be rough but never ugly
And I’ve seen enough to say that
I’ve got a girl
She’s the sweetest
I don’t wanna loose her taste
To any other just to prove that
I can could turn it all to waste
Track Name: Love Her Easy
They say
There’s plenty of beauties
Plenty of fish in the sea
And some will try and turn
Honest love to misery
Oh boy

Look out for a special one
That is worth holding onto
Be sure she won’t let you down
And try to love her easy

Easy
Love her easy
Believe me
It’s all you gotta do
For love won’t go hard on you

And when she’s off to see the wide world
You hope she’d come back for you
She’s not the kind of girl
To run off for something new

Cause she is a special one
And she’s worth holding onto
Yeah she won’t let you down
If you only love her easy

Easy
Love her easy
Believe me
It’s all you gotta do
For love won’t go hard on you

Easy
Love her easy
And that’s how she loves me
It’s all that she can do
It’s all that I can do
It’s all that you can do
Track Name: Goodbye Summer
Do you remember those days
We were by the river
Climbing castles of rock
Until a new year had turned them to shiver

And time was just a word
Its ticking overheard
When we listened to Viceroy

Oh goodbye summer
I will remember you
It may seem unreal looking back
The time won’t pass until we gotta say
Bye baby goodbye summer
Let me hang on to your
Simple tricks turned us into kids
Who never felt so blue

Down by the poolside
We were swimming
Above our shadows
In the moonlight

The world has been a friend
Who let us play pretend
And hope we’d never get older

Oh goodbye summer
I will remember you
It may seem unreal looking back
The time won’t pass until we gotta say
Bye baby goodbye summer
Let me hang on to your
Simple tricks turned us into kids
Who never felt so blue
Track Name: Be A Better Man
Hey boy
I know it seems so hard
When the whole world is watching
And running its mouth apart
I guess those nights are keeping you awake
Now that so many choices are waiting
To be your mistakes
Oh no

But whatever they say
Try to be a better man today
It’s never too late to be changing your way
But hey boy I know it seems so hard

Now the spotlight is on you
Will it leave you in the dark
Not if you try and learn to speak from your heart
Now listen what it tells you
And we call it a brand new start

And don’t let it slip away
And you’ll find yourself among better men today
It’s never too late to be heading that way
Hey boy see after all it’s not that hard
