Autumn's creeping up
And there across the lot
Stands a tree intact
And just content to know
Clinging to each branch
Holding on for the fear of being naked

It's a shame that you won't be here to notice everything that's changed
It's a shame that you won't be here to see this building take its place
It's a shame that you won't be around to hear us all recite your name
In the distance, rows of waving timber fight back the change

Blowing side to side in September
All the leaves that fall, we remember
Blowing side to side in September
All the leaves that fall, we remember

This thickened air is stealing
My right to breathe
Oh, my backbone grows weaker than
A scarecrow with no wings
Out here in the cold
Soon, we'll know
What tragic is
In the distance, rows of waving timber fight back the change

Blowing side to side in September
All the leaves that fall, we remember
Blowing side to side in September
All the leaves that fall, we remember
We remember

A shadowing
I'm aware what it brings
But the weight of it all breaks a heart too quickly
Find answers, ask no questions
The wind brings out suggestions
And leaves a deep impression
A tragedy

Blowing side to side in September
All the leaves that fall, we remember
Blowing side to side in September
All the leaves that fall, we remember
We remember
We remember
We remember
Oh, we remember
We remember
