Will this be the last plane ride in your swing?
The harvest moon has come
And with her sadness brings
My mom says it's too cold to play
So I'm just waiting here
Thinking on our sunny days

But now there's autumn in your eyes
I just wanted a chance to say goodbye
A final burst of summertime
I just wanted a chance to say goodbye

There's nothing quite as hard
Or easier than time
My world is coming down
And no one seems to mind
Where I once played there's no sound
And all your pretty leaves have fallen to the ground

And now there's autumn in your eyes
I just wanted a chance to say goodbye
A sad farewell to summertime
I just wanted a chance to say goodbye

From the north the icy breath is all around me
Blowing and snowing
Changing you

    General Commentthis seems simple, a song about summer and how quickly it passes. he feels like the summer is so short and autumn and winter are too long

    General CommentI love this song because it describes my childhood as well. a lot of my childhood memories are brought back to me with the sound of the birds and lawn mowers and plane motors humming by way up in the blue sky. i love this cause it is a song about the love of summer and the melancholy feeling of those summer memories in your mind while facing the new weather patterns of fall and winter.
    i think this can also be a song about a loved one that has become sick and is quickly dying. "autumn in your eyes" a sign that winter is coming and winter is a symbol of death. "i just wanted a chance to say goodbye" - just wanting one last day to live to the fullest with your loved one. But- "its too cold to play, so im just waiting here thinking on our sunny days" -but you cant have that last day you were hoping for, theres not too much more you can do but be thankful for the good times with your loved one and just accept their passing.
    i dunno if thats too cliché but the seasons of life comparison always works i guess.
