The Thing About October

lyrics

The thing about October, at least around these parts
Stores start closin’ early, days start goin’ dark
College kids are off to school
They’re all done cuttin’ grass
Not much lookin’ forward, a whole lot lookin’ back

I’ll be damned if these leaves aren’t changin’ again
The smell of smoke and yesterday hangin’ on the wind
But I could stand to feel that way again
The game was almost over
You were leanin’ on my shoulder
I didn’t notice it gettin’ colder
That’s the thing about October

The thing about October that makes you reminisce
Summer’s got so far away, lost track of where it went
And the colors of October, they remind you where you’ve been
When we snuck off from our friends
Laughin’ and shiverin’
In my sweatshirt you were in

We all say we’re headed off to warmer states
Like we’re stronger than the distance
We learn the truth too late
And then like a sad song comin’ on the radio
October’s gonna show, and you know where I go

I’ll be damned if these leaves aren’t changin’ again
The smell of smoke and yesterday hangin’ on the wind
But I could stand to feel that way again
The game was almost over
You were leanin’ on my shoulder
I didn’t notice it gettin’ colder
That’s the thing about
The thing about October
