September

 


Come and lie here next to me
We don’t have to do anything
Just breathe
Just breathe

Delay the morning
The harsh light and the noise
Close the window, shut the blind
We can steal some peace of mind

If you play along with me
We won’t have to see
The sunlight wash over reality
Just come and lie here next to me
Just come and lie here next to me

Come and lie here next to me
We don’t have to say anything
Just breathe
Slow and deep


Delay the day
The burning light and hum of the street
Keep the window shut and the curtains drawn
We won’t have to mow the lawn if we can’t see how tall the grass has grown

Pick a friend among the weeds
They can’t take away
What we fail to be
Just come and lie here next to me
Just come and lie here next to me

Oh September
Oh September
Here we go my love
Here we go

On the corner they dance beneath a blind moon
In the dark they love what no one else could
While you sleep they pity you like a fool
In your dreams they speak with tongues made of wood
With words made of stars they start to confess
A pseudonym, a perfect mess
Like a dog scratching at the pavement
On the street naked in last night’s dress

Oh September
Oh September
Here we go my love, ah come on
Here we go

Come and lie here next to me
You know, muses don’t get royalties
You’ll have to put your faith in me
If you do I’ll let you lie in peace
