With the whisper of dawn, I am chained to a memory
And the silence of the morning wraps my heart in a blanket of used to be's
I know you're over me
I walk to the window, slip on my lonely shoes
I put on some coffee so I can keep on wishin' I was over you
But I'm not over you

My heart is heavy, it's a weight on my shoulder
And everyday it's getting colder and colder

Just like a rose that dies, it never blooms again
Never gonna get to know, I'll never know what might've been
And like a season that's been taken by the wind
You're gone, gone
Like the leaves of September

Now I look in the mirror and a broken man is all I see
I wash my face but I can't seem to wash away these broken dreams
It's all I do it seems
Well, I, miss your voice and I miss your sweet laugh
Can't stop thinking that forever's what we could've had
But that's what we'll never have

I tell myself that it's over, it's over
And every time I do, it's just getting colder and colder

Just like a rose that dies, it never blooms again
Never gonna get to know, I'll never know what might've been
And like a season that's been taken by the wind
You're gone, gone
Like the leaves of September

Just like a rose that dies, it never blooms again
Never gonna get to know, I'll never know what might've been
And like a season that's been taken by the wind

Just like a rose that dies, it never blooms again
Never gonna get to know, I'll never know what might've been
And like a season that's been taken by the wind
You're gone, gone
Like the leaves of September
