lyrics

Come September

Do you remember that awful weather
and the play went on for hours in the park?
We grew closer under your umbrella
as the evening sky grew dark

I wore my boots to shreds that so-called summer
running round the edges of the moon
For stolen kisses, midnight dances, the price you pay the piper for the tune

And I've always loved the shadows of the autumn
And the way the sunlight falls so long and golden
And I said you'd have to learn to set me free

Now every day of beauty that still lingers
Reminds me to be thankful for the gifts that summer brings us
The festivals are over, everyone's gone home
I'm kicking through the leaves on lovers lane alone

And you talked to me of ancient things, and holy springs, and love,
And I ran away as fast as I knew how
From something that I could not do without

And I've always loved the shadows of the autumn
And the way the sunlight falls so long and golden
Still I never thought I'd fall so easily

There's blackberries and apple trees and conkers on the ground
And something in the wind I just can't name
But one thing that I'm sure of now is change
