September Will Let You Down


I’ve known her all my life, which sounds glib, but she was there the day I was born.
I grew up looking forward to seeing her, and the first time I fell in love, I fell in love with her.
I still look out for her, forget everything I ever learned about life when she’s here.
I know she’s not exclusive, makes the same promises to anybody interested.
I haven’t been so faithful myself. I’ve had others, and they’ve run hot and cold.
But it’s always her I want.
I want to feel her touch on my face. I want her to make everything all right again.
It won’t work.
It’ll rain.
Our plans to meet up like we did when I was a kid
Won’t ever come off; The party won’t work out the way it should.
She’ll turn frosty and I won’t know why.
I’m holding my breath for her.
I’m biting my lip.
September will cheat on me.
September will let me down.
