October Rose


I was too busy writing love songs when the real thing came along

I was looking for the words for a life I never knew

It was all cliché - until the month of May

Then I noticed you


October Rose - more beautiful than I’ve ever seen

October – she was waiting for me, only for me


June and July, you smelt so good when I walked by

You made me smile – made me glad to be alive

I dreamed of you - I dreamt of better times


August came, I got the nerve to ask you your name

You were shy - but you told it just the same

October Rose


October Rose - more beautiful than I’ve ever seen

October – she was waiting there for me, only for me


Like fireflies we buzzed the night – intoxicated

Spinning out in golden summer

Over rivers over trees over cities over seas

You and me intoxicated


October Rose - more beautiful than I’ve ever seen

October Rose


September Rose

Sitting in the sun with all your friends up on the wall

Laughing at it all til summer ends as summer ends

You were the last to fall/October Rose


October Rose

We were still young but the year got old

The days grew short and the nights turned cold

You were the last to go/October Rose


November Rose

I looked for you but you were gone

Now I’m alone

October Rose


October Rose - more beautiful than I’ve ever seen

October – she was waiting only for me, only for me

October Rose – the sweetest song I’ll ever sing


October Rose – she was waiting only for me, only for me – October

Rose
