What made you write this song?

I wrote this song for a girl that I fancied and dated back then.

Describe the process/experience of creating this song from start to finish.

There’s nothing much to say about it aside from I was overjoyed when I wrote this song.

Lyrically, what inspires you? Do you do something or listen to someone to kick start your creativity?

When I feel very happy or gutted, I go ahead and write songs right away. Most of the lyrics are based on my encounters and my thoughts on the same day.

Does songwriting come naturally to you? Who are your biggest influences?

I’m not a pro, but yes, it comes to me naturally. To name a few of my influences, they would be Tom Delonge, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Rico Blanco.

Listen to Summer:

Summer Lyrics:

I

Oh baby come fly with me, days are getting okay

Go pick up your bikinis and the radio set

Rollin’ away from the crowds and the usual haze

Come baby fly with me, endless summer time.

Pre- chorus:

Na na na, na na na na na naaa.

Na na na na, na na na, na na na na na naaa.

Chorus:

Fly with me, there’s no danger anyway

I guarantee you will see, all your fears with drift away

Sunkist skin, no make-up kit

We’re not flying every day, so what now?

Go ask your dad and let’s roll away.

Pre-Verse:

La la la la laaa, la la la, la laaa.
II

When I’m with you, I feel its summer heat

Just like our love, divine.

And when it rains, you’d still be fine by my side

The umbrella of joy is in my hands

Yeah, yeahhh.

La la laaa, la la la laaa

La la laaa, la la la laaa

La la laaa, la la la laaa

La la laaaa

Chorus:

Fly with me, there’s no danger anyway

I guarantee you will see, all your fears with drift away

Sunkist skin, no make-up kit

We’re not flying every day, so what now?

Go ask your dad and let’s roll away.

Bridge:

I wanna spend my whole lifetime with you.

Repeat Verse 1 in slow manner:

Oh baby come fly with me, days are getting okay

Go pick up your bikinis and the radio set

Rollin’ away from the crowds and the usual haze

Come baby fly with me, endless summer time.

Chorus:

Fly with me, there’s no danger anyway

I guarantee you will see, all your fears with drift away

Sunkist skin, no make-up kit

We’re not flying every day, so what now?

Go ask your dad and let’s roll away.

Fly with me, there’s no danger anyway (Roll away)

I guarantee you will see, all your fears with drift away

Sunkist skin, no make-up kit

We’re not flying every day, so what now?

Go ask your dad and let’s roll away.
