Before August Came

Fireflies and June bug days
Catching the sun’s brilliant rays
Porch swing secrets under stars
But summer days are gone and far

I remember the heat that July brought
Running in the wildflowers waiting to get caught
Blush on my cheek, well it came from you
The days of wonder of feeling new

Take me back to July when the rain was gone
To holding my hand as we searched the dawn
Together, let’s go back together
Before August came

Before August came

Take a chance to run in the sky
Live in the moment forget goodbyes
That’s what we had and we had it made
But their gone and I wished they’d stayed

Cherry trees in the grove
A secret paradise, our lovebird cove
We were young, I naïve
Love last forever that’s what I believed

Take me back to July when the rain was gone
To holding my hand as we searched the dawn
Together, let’s go back together
Before August came

Before August came

Love shelters all from the pain
Except when it leaves you out in the rain
Of summer nights of fantasy
Singing along to summer’s Rhapsody

All things end, a lesson learned
Life’s unfair and you can’t return
To July when you were here
Before August came and you
Disappeared

Take me back to July when the rain was gone
To holding my hand as we searched the dawn
Together, let’s go back together
Before August came

Before August came

I was lost you were found
When will you come back around?
I sleep with my windows open
Silently, wishing, praying and hoping

Its September now and it’s getting late
I’m told to forget, but I gotta wait for you
I leave the light on like I said
You’re spots empty on my bed
But I waited for you to come back to me

Take me back to July when the rain was gone
To holding my hand as we searched the dawn
Together, let’s go back together
Before August came

Before August came
