Lyrics

Another Day In July Marc Douglas Berardo © 2024 Overhead Map Music/ASCAP

The boats arrive in the morning
And leave again at five
And the people that stay, come to use the day
And the whole island comes alive
And the silence is interrupted
By the horns of the mopeds flying by
The driver holds a coffee cup where the taxis line up
It’s another day in July
They come to drink and stare at the sea
They come to this place to feel free
and the half-shirt boys make noise with sunglasses on their head
They will pass out in the sand before they ever go to bed
The others are dressed in their wedding clothes
Standing at the bar waiting for their spouse
It’s another day in July but a special one for the bride
As the sun sets over Sullivan House

And at night the moon lights my way
On the path that leads to the bay of Old Harbor
Where the grand hotel faces the sea
And I think of you, and I wait on another day

Cassie tends bar at the Shoals
Summer worker, saving money and saving sailor’s souls
And tonight, she will dance under the stars
To the soundtrack of her summer played on electric guitars
When the season ends, she will have to leave this place
Back to school, start a family, and join the human race
She’ll come back every year with her children by her side
On the Fourth of July
They’ll watch the fireworks before they wave goodbye
With the promise to return on Another day in July

And at night the moon lights my way
On the path that leads to the bay of Old Harbor
Where the grand hotel faces the sea
And I think of you, and I wait on another day
