But what would the world be like if we stopped looking to get something in return, and just loved unconditionally, for the happiness it brings us all?

There’s must be something in that summer air

There’s must be something in that summer air

 

Hardwell :   Listen here 

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Feel the sun on your skin
Feel the love sinking in
Oh, babe, what we waitin’ for?
We got nothing to do
You got me, I got you
Oh, feel the sun on your skin
Feel the love sinking in
Say, babe, what we waitin’ for?
And no place I’d rather be
I got you, you got me

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s going off, I swear
We got it all right here

[Chorus]
There must be something in that summer air
Just high life and we don’t care
There must be something in that summer air
So high and we don’t care
There must be something in that summer air
Just high life and we don’t care
There must be something in that summer air
So high and we don’t care
That summer air

[Verse 2]
Feel the sun on your skin
Feel the love sinking in
Oh, babe, what we waitin’ for?
We got nothing to do
You got me, I got you
Oh, feel the sun on your skin
Feel the love sinking in
Say, babe, what we waitin’ for?
And no place I’d rather be
I got you, you got me

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s going off, I swear
We got it all right here

[Chorus]
There’s must be something in that summer air
Just high life and we don’t care
There’s must be something in that summer air
So high and we don’t care
There’s must be something in that summer air
Just high life and we don’t care
There’s must be something in that summer air
So high and we don’t care
That summer air

That summer air

[Chorus]
There’s must be something in that summer air
Just high life and we don’t care
There’s must be something in that summer air
So high and we don’t care

That summer air
