lyrics

A one... two... a one, two, three.

Oh honey, summer breeze is fleeting
It's soon to be sleeting
Retreating to cozier climates back home in bed.
Ephemeral pleasures, those transient treasures
Eluding me in the blink of an eye
Moments like these, few and far between,
But in this minute you and I
Were meant to be still
Before winter's chill takes it all away
Let's lay here and stay all day, my dear
It's the loveliest season of the year.

Those soft autumn grasses
As sweet as molasses
The scent of morning dew
Just passing through my senses
Past tenses are soon to ensue
To describe the leaves as they crunch beneath my feet
That soothing sound won't be around
As brown takes red's place on the desolate ground
And bare birches quiver as lonely mammals shiver
And I'll be inside
Attempting to hide
And who knows if you will be there, too
So for now, I'll hold on to you
Before the seasonal blues.

Oh baby, I'm looking on to sweet spring
Those icicles melting
With every drip my careless tongue slips
Pushing you further away...
We held it together through harsh sweater weather,
But now I fear expiration's underway
We had a good run, but that dearly missed sun
Will mark a new chapter, party of one
'Cause I know how these things go
I've been down this road too many times before
And I know this for sure
We'll grow bored
As we complete the seasonal tour
And we no longer need a lover's warmth
There's no use fighting nature's course
No sense of sweetness anymore
These things ain't meant to endure.
