Day 239: Seasons Change

Last Sunday, I set out to write the lyrics to a song without writing the music at the same time, something I don’t usually do. This is what I came up with. In the near future, I’ll set it to music and post a recording.

Seasons Change
The fall comes in soft and slow
and although I try to ignore it
The days get cool and the nights get cold
how summer wanes much too quick

Our suntanned skin will quickly fade
and the sand will fall from our feet
and we’ll all run out of lemonade
as we move inside to find a seat

Oh goodbye summer, I’ll miss you
Oh goodbye summer, come back soon
Oh goodbye summer, Oh I’m a fool
I’m a fool for you

So we all pull out our hats and scarves
and we light up the fires and we buckle down
We put on our coats and cover our arms
It’ll be six months now til we get out

The seasons change and they harden you up
You’re just digging yourself out of snow and muck
This is what life in Chicago means
you’re freezing your ass two days out of three

Oh goodbye summer, I’ll miss you
Oh goodbye summer, come back soon
Oh goodbye summer, Oh I’m a fool
I’m a fool for you
