"This Time Of Year" as written by and Kevin Griffin....
Well there's a feelin' in the air
Just like a Friday afternoon
Yeah you can go there if you want
Though it fades too soon
So go on, let it be

If there's a feelin' coming over me
Seems like it's always understood this time of year
Well I know there's a reason to change
Well I know there's a time for us

Think about the good times and you live with all the bad
You can feel it in the air
Feelin' right this time of year
Well there's a football in the air
Across the leaf-blown field
Yeah, and there's your first car on the road
And the girl you steal
So go on, if you fell

If there's a feelin' that there's somethin' else
Seems like it's always understood this time of year
Well I know there's a reason to change (this time of year)
Yeah I know there's a time for us (this time of year)
Think about the good times but you live with all the bad (this time of year)

You can feel it in the air
Feelin' right this time of year
Well there's a feelin' in the air
Just like a Friday afternoon
Yeah you can go there if you want
Thought it fades too soon
So go on, let it be

If there's a feelin' comin' over me
Seems like it's always understood this time of year
Well I know there's a reason to change (this time of year)
Yeah I know there's a time for us (this time of year)
Ya think about the good times, and you live with all the bad (this time of year)

You can feel it in the air
Feel it in the air
Yeah I can feel it in the air
Well I can feel it in the air
Yeah you can feel it in the air
Feelin' right this time of year

    General CommentI can remember listening to this song driving to the lake, or headed out to Colorado. Theres just this feeling you get, like just before it rains. Its almost indescribable and this song just tops it off. It helps you feel that way any time. This is a truely great song, way to go BTE

    General Commentthis song makes me cry. seriously. It is about how the great life doesn't last. but it is definatly my favorite of thiers to perform myself. It also makes me miss the south, where it is like this year round.

    General Commentyou think about the good times and you live with all the bad. how truer can a song get? for me this song is about the cycles of sadness, that you can predict it coming like the seasons, or the weather. and there's really no escape. this song is painfully sad, whenever im alone this song invariably plays in my mind.

    General CommentThere's also a second version of this song available on BTE's Greatest Hits album...

    the main difference is that they stick in the first verse to "Get You In" after the second chorus..

    I sit and watch your flowers wilting in the kitchen
    I felt like I was one of them gasping for air
    I go from room to room hoping to find your presence
    I play my music louder than you like me to

    This is an incredible song either way you hear it

    General CommentI love hearing this song in the fall. Even though it's been 10 years since I was in high school, I get this feeling every fall that there's something I need to be doing- I should be at marching band practice! I should be buying school supplies! School is starting. I wonder if this feeling willl come every fall for me. I also know that while I get lost in the nostalgic feeling, it never lasts long- it fades too soon. To firefighter751- enjoy your senior year! Time goes so quickly.

    General CommentOne of my all time favorite songs. The lyrics are general enough for almost anyone to relate to & the music and mood is perfect

    General Commentanother one of my BTE favorites. I call this song my "back-to-college song."

    i work in Metro Manila (philippines) but every friday, i have to go back to UPLB (3 hour ride), just to relax, and relive college..and i just love listening to this song on the road.

    it's like someone's telling me that "it's okay, go on. have fun". And I listen to it over and over, with some of the tracks on my player. I just can't get enough of it.
