“I'm really excited about this one and can't wait for it to be heard by fresh ears. As an artist, I can only hope to say what's true to my heart and never try to be anything I'm not. I hope the music that I have created and will be released to the world resonates with my fans and new listeners as it does with me.”
― Chance Perez[1]

"Can't Trust Summer" is the debut solo single by Chance Perez. It was released independently on August 27, 2021.

Background and composition

He began the composition in February 2020 with fellow co-writers, Sammy Plotkin and Stephen Rivera, in Los Angeles, California. The pre-chorus and the chorus was created, Perez commenting on it sounding like a "reggae jam". Later he met with producer Nate Merchant, which turned the song into "80s pop". He explained to Just Jared Jr., ""Can't Trust Summer" is an upbeat, 'roll your windows down' type track about that all consuming love you can't let go of. You know it's wrong, you know you're going to crash and burn, but you're so desperately infatuated that you can't say goodbye."[2]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sun set me free
Hands on me
Oh, I just want a bottle up her words
Drink them when I'm hurting
Lies in the air, acting unaware
She's sipping 'cause she's knows
She's slipping away slowly
Can ya

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me 'cause I don't wanna be the reason that you run away
Tell me what it's gonna take

[Chorus]
You can't trust summer
Sunny days will fade
But I'm wasted on temptation 'cause I love the taste
You can't trust summer
Sunkissed fall from grace
And I wish that she would stay
But she leaves like seasons change

[Verse 2]
Night she'll forget like promises
Standing there painted against the sky
Lavender and honey on my mind
Sweet turns to bitter
Poison on her lips in the liquor store
She knew I was feeling insecure
And still

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me 'cause I don't wanna be the reason that you run away
Tell me what it's gonna take

[Chorus]
You can't trust summer
Sunny days will fade
But I'm wasted on temptation 'cause I love the taste
You can't trust summer
Sunkissed fall from grace
And I wish that she would stay
But she leaves like seasons change

[Bridge]
No (Can't trust, can't trust summer)
You can't trust (You can't trust summer)
Take me for a fool (Can't trust, can't trust summer)
You can't trust (Can't trust, can't trust summer)
You can't trust summer, oh (You can't trust summer, can't trust, can't trust summer)

[Chorus]
You can't trust summer
Sunny days will fade (Sunny days will fade)
But I'm wasted on temptation 'cause I love the taste ('Cause I love the taste)
You can't trust summer (You can't)
Sunkissed fall from grace (You can't)
And I wish that she would stay
But she leaves like seasons change
