Summer in October

Was thinking about what a brilliant autumn we’ve been having, about the hot days of early October and the still green leaves; whimsically googled ‘summer in October’ and got the ‘Gainesville’ lyrics and then found the vid on Youtube. Serendipity. I’m not a punk fan but I grok the words.

Gainesville Lyrics

I’m living summer time
I’m not thinking about the dark clouds
I’m just basking in the shine
One for all and all for one
No one fighting over crumbs,
today is better than any day that’s come before

And if the rain begins to fall
I won’t feel it at all
Let’s live it like we mean it
And it feels like summer in october
And I hope this day is never over
And it feels like summer in october
to me

I try not to complicate
I’ve taken life for granted for forever and a day
Like it was broken from the start
I had to tear it all apart
And hope the pieces would fit back together fine

And if the rain begins to fall
I won’t feel it at all
Let’s live it like we fucking mean it

And it feels like summer in october
And I hope this day is never over
And it feels like summer in october
to me

Time was wasted
We’re moving way too slow
Let’s go before we’re old
Time doesn’t wait for me

Time was wasted
We’re moving way too slow
Let’s go cause we’re not getting any younger
Time doesn’t wait for me

Time was wasted
We’re moving way too slow
Let’s go cause we’re not getting any younger
Time doesn’t wait for me

Time was wasted
We’re moving way too slow
Let’s go before we’re old
Time doesn’t wait for me
