"Gone in September" as written by Travis L Barker and Writers Unknown....
I used to be a sweetheart
I used to be alright
I'd tell myself I love you
But I'm creeping every night
When I met you at the party
And I told you you were pretty
I was honestly just trying to score
Whoa, whoa

But you made me wait a week
Just to kiss you on the cheek
Now it's breaking my heart to break yours

I said I loved you in the summer
But will I love you in the fall
I thought I wasn't like the others
Guess I'm an asshole after all

Come September I'll be gone (gone, gone)
Come September I'll be gone (gone, gone)

I used to be a good guy
I used to be alright
I'd tell myself I love you
But I'm creeping every night
(creep, creep, creep)

When I met you at the party
When I told you you were pretty
I was honestly just trying to score

I said I loved you in the summer
But will I love you in the fall
I thought I wasn't like the others
Guess I'm an asshole after all

Come September I'll be gone (gone, gone)
Come September I'll be gone (gone, gone)

I'd be lying if I said it didn't feel right
I've been trying
But I cant just get the feeling back
When did I become?
The bad guy

I said I loved you in the summer
I loved you in the summer
But will I love you in the fall
Lo-love you in the fall

I thought I wasn't like the others
I wasn't like the others
Guess I'm an asshole after all

Come September I'll be gone (gone, gone)
Come September I'll be gone (gone, gone)
Whoa, whoa
(gone, gone, gone)
You can miss me when I'm gone
Whoa, whoa

    General CommentThis song speaks so much about my last girlfriend. Loved her in the summer, but around fall, things were different

    General CommentHonestly I have not been in a situation close to this but I love the song. It means that he met her and he wasnt really looking for a relationship, but he tried it with her, knowing that it wasnt going to work. He lied to himself and her,saying that he loves her. He's admmitting that he's creeping with other girls. And it hurts him that hes hurting her.
