The Song’s Theme
John Prine’s song “Summer’s End” is inspired by the happy memories happened in someone’s life. Summer is when people relax and enjoy most of their time, but for Prine, good things come into an end.
“Summer’s end came faster than we wanted.”
Sometimes, when we enjoy what we are doing, time flies so fast. We do not notice how time just passes. Do you agree?
