Goodbye to Summer

from Campfire Songs by Richard Turgeon

I felt a chill over the weekend
I knew that what we were had reached the end
The seasons turn and now I’m left alone
We made our choice and now we’re on our own

Goodbye to you, goodbye to summer
My time with you was like no other
No matter where I go, I’ll always see you there
And when I look, I find you everywhere

The leaves have started turning red and gold
The fading memories get so hard to hold
I can’t forget the way you looked at me
This tattered coat is all the warmth I need

We never had our chance to say goodbye
I don’t have any tears left in my eyes
Empty inside and nothin’ left for you
It’s time to take a new view
Feel something new
Goodbye to summer

Goodbye to you, goodbye to summer
Goodbye to you, goodbye to summer
