September

Album: Leave This Town (2009)
Charted: 36
  • How the time passed away, all the trouble that we gave
    And all those days we spent out by the lake
    Has it all gone to waste? All the promises we made
    One by one they vanish just the same

    Of all the things I still remember
    Summer's never looked the same
    The years go by and time just seems to fly
    But the memories remain

    In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
    Nothing to lose but everything to gain
    Reflecting now on how things could've been
    It was worth it in the end

    Now it all seems so clear, there's nothing left to fear
    So we made our way by finding what was real
    Now the days are so long that summer's moving on
    We reach for something that's already gone, yeah

    Of all the things I still remember
    Summer's never looked the same
    The years go by and time just seems to fly
    But the memories remain

    In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
    Nothing to lose but everything to gain
    Reflecting now on how things could've been
    It was worth it in the end

    Yeah, we knew we had to leave this town (we knew we had to leave this town)
    But we never knew when and we never knew how (we never knew how)
    We would end up here the way we are
    Yeah, we knew we had to leave this town (we knew we had to leave this town)
    But we never knew when and we never knew how (we never knew how)

    Of all the things I still remember
    Summer's never looked the same
    The years go by and time just seems to fly
    But the memories remain

    In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
    Nothing to lose but everything to gain
    Reflecting now on how things could've been
    It was worth it in the end Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER A. DAUGHTRY, JOSHUA EARL STEELY
