Summer Breeze: the meaning of the lyrics

Summer Breeze is a song about the joy of life. In the song Jim Seals and Dash Crofts describe the pleasant sensation of summer, when the fresh breeze blows on your face, people is happy and life seems perfect in all aspects. The chorus is a romantic description of those moment of wellness.

Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind

The lyrics of the song collect a series of situations and details that give us good sensations and reminds us the moment when we feel weel, enjoying the days with harmony. The music that comes out of the neighbours’ houses, the evening lights out of the window, the smile of the girl we love, welcoming us home after a hard day of work. All this makes us feel good. It “lets me know everything’s all right”, as the song says in the beginning.

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day’s work
And you’re waiting there
Not a care in the world

This is therefore the meaning of Summer Breeze lyrics, and the message that it wants to convey: there are moments of life when everything looks in the right place. And our duty is to notice it, appreciate it, let it penetrate our mood. Feeling good is not only something that just happens from time to time. It’s something that we allow to happen by driving our attention in the right way, towards the things that make our life worth it.

The full lyrics

See the curtains hangin’ in the window
In the evening on a Friday night
A little light a-shinin’ through the window
Lets me know everything’s all right

Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ though the jasmine in my mind

See the paper layin’ on the sidewalk
A little music from the house next door
So I walk on up to the doorstep
Through the screen and across the floor

Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind

Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom
July is dressed up and playing her tune
And I come home from a hard day’s work
And you’re waiting there
Not a care in the world

See the smile awaitin’ in the kitchen
Through cookin’ and the plates for two
Feel the arms that reach out to hold me
In the evening when the day is through

Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind
Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind
