I Need September (Vocal Mix)

Story Behind The Song

The melody and feel that I found for the Refrains reminded me of Neil Diamond's "September Morn", so I carried on in that vein...

Lyrics

Our loving started in September
As the leaves began to fall.
Now tell me, babe, do you remember?
Say, just anything at all.

We kissed and kissed all through September,
October and November too.
But it was over by December -
There was nothing I could do!

I need September to come back once again
'Cos I'll always remember how we were way back then.
I need September - I need your smile.
But it's always December,
I've got the blues all the while.

So many years have come and gone now,
But Winter's grip is holding me.
I'm wond'ring how can I go on now
With my thoughts of what could be.

I guess you've found another lover -
In all this time that's only fair.
I have to try and find another -
That will be my lasting prayer.

I need September to come back once again
'Cos I'll always remember how we were way back then.
I need September - I need your smile.
So it's never December,
And no more blues all the while.
