  • Here's a sweet September morning, there's the sense of Autumn on the rise
    He steps into the wind and sadly sighs
    "Why does it always seem to be, there's a cold December wind in front of me?"
    The more he fills his empty evenings
    The less he feels that there's a chance to find
    Something that can bring a peace of mind
    Is there a place where you can go?
    A little something you should know to turn the tide to your favor?

    [Chorus:]

    Wait a little while to welcome what you're after
    Give it the time to find its way to you
    And soon as you no longer try, you'll turn and find it standing by your side
    Come and get it, when you let it, it'll come to you

    When I run short on inspiration, I best recall what I've known all along
    'N I remember sweet September's song, there never really has to be
    A cold and bitter wind in front of me anymore

    Just forget it and wait a little while, while, while
    Wait a little while, everything will come to you in time
    Wait a little while - everything will come to you in time
    Wait a little while - every little thing's gonna come to you in time
    Wait a little while - everything will come to you in time
    Wait a little while - everything will come to you in time

  • Mavis from Upper MidwestI love this tune, but thought it was popular a few years later. Donna is correct: It is a gem.
  • Donna from Ft. Lauderdale, FlA simple soft rock melody that takes me back to my college years. Got decent airplay at the time but remains under-appreciated. Almost like a hidden gem. Same goes for Keep the Fire - why isn't that one listed here?
