Italian Summer

“From the islands you see Li Galli and Capri / I remember it all / Love was everywhere / You just had to fall”

In Your Dreams

Stevie wrote “Italian Summer” while vacationing near the Almalfi Coast of southern Italy. In the song, she references the islands of Li Galli and Capri.

The rose stood out
Red against the golden wall
The sun comes up through the silken drapes
The room begins to glow
All in cream-colored ivories
And soft yellows
You say hello
Put down that guitar
And handed me a rose

At the end of the Italian summer
It rains fast and it rains hard
The wind blows through you
It tears you apart
Ooh, it’s so romantic
Hey, it’s so soulful
The rain falls down
And the thunder rolls

The sun fades out
And the mountains grow tall
The mists rush in and they take it all
From the islands you see
Li Galli and Capri
I remember it all
Love was everywhere
You just had to fall

At the end of the Italian summer
It rains fast and it rains hard
The wind blows through you
It tears you apart
Ooh, it’s so romantic
Hey, it’s so soulful
The rain falls down
And the thunder rolls

At the end of the Italian summer
It rains fast and it rains hard
The wind blows through you
It tears you apart
Oh, it’s so romantic
Hey, it’s so soulful
The rain falls down
And the thunder rolls

At the end of the Italian summer
It rains fast and it rains hard
The wind blows through you
It tears you apart
Oh, it’s so romantic
Hey, it’s so soulful
The rain falls down
And the thunder rolls

The sun fades out
And the mountains grow tall
Then the mists rush in and they take it all
From the islands you see
Li Galli and Capri
I remember it all
You just had to…fall
