Come On, Autumn

Come on, autumn; the bottle’s empty
Words-they don’t mean anything
Summer stealing: you’re feeling guilty
But colors don’t bleed without pain

Not everything gone wrong is a mistake
Show me something before it all turns to grey

Give me color, show me magic
Take the pain back: I’ve learned my lesson
Show me mercy, give me wisdom
To keep the past from being present
Come on, autumn

Come on, autumn; you’ve got him cornered
Now it’s time to let him go
Never-ending: the pending stories
Faces familiar but without hope

Not every gazing eye could be true love
Show me something before I give it all up

Give me color, show me magic
Take the pain back: I’ve learned my lesson
Show me mercy, give me wisdom
To keep the past from being present
Come on, autumn

It’s time to let go of glass
I cannot see when things must pass
I realize after it ends, but then it’s time to start again
As seasons change, I too will try
To take the pieces of my life
And build it back up to beautiful
Or else I’m left with nothing
And no one to hold

Come on, autumn; show me magic
Take the pain back: I’ve learned my lesson
Show me mercy, give me wisdom
To keep the past from being present
Come on, autumn–don’t forget me
