IT IS NO LONGER SUMMER

I am definitely not crestfallen it is no longer summer here in Texas.


Autumn has always been my favorite season of the year. The leaves falling and turning bronze and to finesse the sentiment, a comforting breeze proceeds to throw me into the wide arms of melancholy. I find that beautiful. I do not regard melancholy to be as gloomy as traditionally depicted. I find the sober thoughtfulness and pensiveness elegant, my angels.


My soul feels beautiful. My inner self feels pure. Yes.


Relieved, even, and smiling at the time I take to become someone I usually am not: an introvert.


The fall for me is a time to recharge. To discard the old and contemplate on the new. To get my wheels turning and churning for my next big message; my next big adventure.


I couldn’t help myself writing a song about these feelings of mine. Even though it’s not bright and shiny outdoors, there are so many other pretty things I notice. And these small things mean so much to me.


So go ahead, dance to this ballad-like song I wrote- out in the woods or in the comfort of your backyard. It’s sweet and it’s meant to cradle the soft part of your heart like a mother rocks a baby to sleep. Pamper yourself. Accept yourself. Renew yourself.


“IT IS NO LONGER SUMMER”

VERSE 1:

It is no longer summer,

Yes, I know

It is no longer summer,

Yes, I know

The mornings are darker and

the evening’s coming to a close

It is no longer summer

Yes, I know

It is no longer summer

Yes, I know

The sun likes to hide itself from me


PRE-CHORUS 1:

Away from me

Just like I’ve done to you

Just like you’ve done to me

We have come to an end

The sunlight’s shy

It barely shows itself

It really can’t decide

If it will stay for me

Who knows in this

Wonderful sentiment

If it will shine

At least one more time for me

Will it really shine for me???


CHORUS:

It is no longer summer

But the beach waves aren’t gone

It is no longer summer

But the stars above still shine

It is no longer summer

But my long, long hair still flows

It is no longer summer

But my heart keeps thriving for you


VERSE 2:

It is no longer summer

Yes, I know

It is no longer summer

Yes, I know

I’ve seen right through the half-truths said of me

It is no longer summer

Yes, I know

It is no longer summer

Yes, I know

The conclusions are skewed and full of flaw


PRE-CHORUS 2:

No need to come back

Not in that manner

Not in that way

I don’t believe you now

The moonlight lives

Ever so boldly

It wants to stay with me

And keep me company

Who knows in this

Wonderful sentiment

If it will bring me light

And stay the whole night

Will it really stay for me???


REPEAT CHORUS
