about

This album is a love letter to summertime. To youth. To friendship. To recklessness. To freedom. To time. To adventure. To swimming pools. To boundless fun. To late nights, and even later mornings. To hope. To love, whether lasting or not, whether past, present or future. To music. To the sun. And, at last, to moving on, when summer ends.

"Summer" is the first of four seasonal EPs and marks the recording debut of Nick + Noah, a pop duo consisting of Nick Frenay and Noah Kellman. Longtime friends and musical partners, this is their first official collaboration.

Special thanks to: Gary Frenay, Jackie Lewis-Frenay, Dr. Robert Kellman, Jessie Kellman, Samuel Kellman, Elliot Moss, Curtis Kelley, Dan Blanck, Sam Crowe, Chase Potter, Jimmy Navarra, Paige Chaplin, Kaya Blaze Kelley, Steve-O Goldman, Zach Lorenz, Hyoung Gyu-Lee, Mike Komrowski, Joe Colombo, Eric Cohen and WAER, Joe Gilman and The Brubeck Institute, Manlius Pebble Hill School, and anybody anywhere who has ever supported us and our music even in the smallest of ways. Thank you all.

Track Name: There's Always Summer
each day you wake up with a thousand things to do
sometimes you wonder if you’ll ever make it through
the world around us moves so fast we can’t keep up
good times are comin’ soon enough...

there’s always summer (4x)

whatever happened to those carefree sunny days
we used to think that it would always stay that way
the nests are empty now and all the birds have flown
but there’s a time for coming home…

there’s always summer (4x)

wake up to pancakes in the early afternoon
we’re in the pool until we start to see the moon
adventure leads us on beneath the starry sky
we fight the closing of our eyes…

there's always summer (8x)
Track Name: Wond'rin
I'm wond'rin if it's you I love
before I even start to think of givin' up
and sure enough all other loves have come and gone
so wond'rin's all I got to keep holdin' on

will it last? or could it be our love is fadin' fast?
let's hope for the best, while it's not too late
there'll come a time when there won't be a reason to the rhyme
we will or we won't, but for now we'll wait...and debate

I'm wond'rin if it's you I love
before I even start to think of givin' up
and sure enough all other loves have come and gone
so wond'rin's all I got to keep holdin' on

end of spring, and we just thought we'd have a summer fling
but now that you're here, can't say goodbye
love has demands, but sometime life's already made it's plans
now we hold the strings, and they'll untie...if we don't try

pickin' you up, knowing today's the day
wondering what I am supposed to say
I see in your eyes you know that something's changed
but now that you're here i can't seem to walk away

I'm wond'rin if it's you I love
before I even start to think of givin' up
and sure enough all other loves have come and gone
so wond'rin's all I got to keep holdin' on

holdin' on… (3x)
Track Name: Hallelujah
I heard there was a secret chord
that david played, and it pleased the lord
but you don't really care for music, do ya?
it goes like this
the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall, the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah (2x)

baby, I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah (2x)

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool ya
and even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the lord of song
with nothing on my tongue but hallelujah
Track Name: Open For Consideration
considering who we are
considering what we had
remembering everything we shared
imagining you and me
rewriting our history
wondering if we're both prepared

it's always open for consideration
it's always open for consideration

believing in you was nice
and I'm willing to do it twice
but this time will you follow through?
I know that you talk about
the benefit of the doubt
and now I'm givin' it to you

it's always open for consideration
it's always open for consideration

we can travel to Hawaii
hike the mountains of Nepal
we can go on a safari
baby, we can do it all
when we're spending time together
seems we're right where we belong
they say nothing lasts forever
maybe we can prove them wrong

it's always open for consideration
it's always open for consideration
Track Name: When Summer Ends
underneath the midnight sky
watching as the embers fly
wishing we could just stop time

faces that we'll always know
laughing in the fire's glow
this is summer at its prime

who ever said it was wrong to miss the past?
who ever made it through alone?

the honeymoon is over now
left to find your way somehow
strange to think you're leavin' home

movin' on when summer ends
hard to say goodbye to friends
you leave the life you've always known

off to the city now to do your parents proud
leaving the town that you've outgrown
wander the world pursuing dreams all on your own
remember that you are not alone

summer never lasts too long
this is where we all belong
even if it's ending soon

funny how we've come so far
this night reminds us who we are
rising with the august moon

you're not alone (4x)

(you're not alone) moving on when summer ends
(you're not alone) hard to say goodbye to friends
(you're not alone) you leave the life you've always known

once in a while you'll find a friendship built to last
don't ever let that spirit go
good times and a smile to carry with you through the year
summer will come before you know

underneath the midnight sky
watching as the embers fly
wishing we could just stop time
