June
Came upon us much too soon
Then was gone
Gone
Like the mountains of the moon
At dawn

Chorus
Then the sun came up on a sleepy day
And never went down at night
And the crowd kept on singin' Waste Away
but it just didn't feel right
And the prince and the drummer and the fire girls
Couldn't get our guitars in tune
And I knew it was over when the sound man said
"I wish we were still in June"

June
Telephones in private rooms
Hot bath
Bathe
In the smell of the buzz' perfume
Man, I want to go back

Chorus

And I knew
It couldn't be true
It wasn't free
It wasn't for me

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...

June
Came upon us much too soon
Then was gone

Chorus

And we knew
It couldn't be true

    General CommentAhh, such a beautiful song.

    Not sure what it means, though I have a theory. Seems like nobody's gonna read it though, so why bother... =/

    General CommentThis song is hypothetically about the breakup of Spock's Beard -- written from the perspective of the band.

    Although the band has not broken up, Neal Morse's eventual departure gave the song a bit of relevance.

    General CommentI always thought this song was a tribute to Kevin Gilbert, a musician, collaborator and friend of the band who died during the writing of this record.
