SANTE AUGUST

Take me back to August when my heart felt so much younger

Since the tenth of every month hangs in the air like pending thunder

I’m reminded of your eyes, and how they separated mine

And for a moment all the birds where you and I

 

Never am I able to recreate the northern table

Where the flutter in my veins could not contain

And for the first time in my life, believe in love at first sight

And there will never be another that could tie

No there will never be another that could tie

 

Time it moves so quickly and my fear is that you’ll miss me

Or even worse, you’ve not begun to miss me yet

But every thought of mine is you dear and it’ll only be next New Year

And I’ll be fit to be with you for all the rest

 

But right now you’ve got more prospects and I understand the context

There’s a distance in our lives we can’t control

And if I were you then I’d be on my way out of the country

Chasing dreams and I can relate so I let you go

 

And I will be here waiting, growing up and also saving

Everything I have to give to give to you

All my time and all my passions and all my grungy hipster fashions

And we’ll be set to build one life out of two

 

And I can be your songbird and you’ll keep getting taller

And we’ll visit all the wonders of the world

And if you ever need a promise like the one I felt in August

Well I promise that I’ll always be your girl

Yes I promise that I’ll always be your girl

Well I promise that I’ll always be your girl
