Leaving October (Sons Of The Desert)

(Drew Womack/Tom Douglas) The autumn leaves they rush outside my window Like they've got something so important they must do Sara will be home now any minute She likes her third grade teacher and looks So much like you I struck a match to light the furnace in the hallway I could smell the summer dust burning in the vent It's just another thing that brings your memory back to me I think that Sara knows I'm troubled By that scent, she reads my mind I'm just fine 'til the end of September Then I remember losing you October '89 If I live in the past, there's no future I'm looking forward to leaving October behind There's a girl I really like down at the office Me and Sara asked her out for New Year's Eve It made me cry when I told her all about us But Sara says there's nothing wrong with me It just takes time I'm just fine 'til the end of September Then I remember losing you October '89 If I live in the past, there's no future I'm looking forward to leaving October behind All things work for good Has become my favorite verse Sara told me that they would But when the nights get cold And the leaves turn rust and gold That's when your memory hurts I'm just fine 'til the end of September Then I remember losing you October '89 If I live in the past, there's no future I'm looking forward to leaving October behind
