Lyrics

The September of My Years
03:18
One day you turn around, and it's summer
Next day you turn around, and it's fall
And all the winters and the springs of a lifetime
Whatever happened to them all

As a man, who as always had the wandering ways
I keep looking back to yesterdays
'Til a long forgotten love appears

And I find, I'm sighing softly as I near
September, the warm September of my years

As I man, who has never pauses at wishing wells
Now I'm watching children's carousels
And their laughter's music to my ears

And I find, that I'm smiling gently as I near
September, the warm September of my years
- The golden warm September of my years
How Old Am I?
03:38
How old am I? I'm old enough to know
The difference between infatuation
And a love that has a chance to grow

How old am I? I'm not too old to hear
The sweet ring of truth and understanding
When the words "I love you" reach my ear

Don't mind these lines beneath my eyes, they're well-earned souvenirs
Of a thousand nights of laughter and occasional tears
And I hope you won't be jealous of the silver in my hair
It took many lover's quarrels to put it there

How old am I? you kiss me and I'm young
Love's a road never traveled, life's a song I've never sung
If I make you happy today, I'm the perfect age
As for tomorrow turn the page
Don't Wait Too Long
03:09
You are the summer and I am the autumn
Don't wait too long
Your song's beginning
While mine's nearly sung
Don't wait too long

Fall is a lovely time of the year
When leaves turn to gold and brown
But soon fall is ending
Winter is near and the leaves
Start tumblin' down

Why must the moments go by in such haste
Don't wait too long
Winter is coming I've no time to waste
Don't wait too long
It Gets Lonely Early
03:01
When you're all alone
All the children grown
And, like starlings, flown away
It gets lonely early, doesn't it?
Lonely early, doesn't it?
Ev'ry single endless day

When your twilight nears
And one face appears
Turning winter years to May
It gets lonely early, doesn't it?
Lonely early, doesn't it?
Still the old heart's young enough to say

"It was really more than lovely, wasn't it?
Truly lovely, wasn't it?"

Ev'ry single lovely day
This Is All I Ask
03:06
As I approach the prime of my life
I find I have the time of my life
Learning to enjoy at my leasure
All the simple pleasure
And so I happily concede

This is all I ask
This is all I need

Beautiful girl, walk a little slower when you walk by me
Lingering sunset, stay a little longer with the lonely sea
Children everywhere, when you shoot at bad men, shoot at me
Take me to that strange enchanted land
Grownups seldom understand

Wandering rainbows, leave a bit of color for my heart to own
Stars in the sky, make my wish come true
Before the night has flown
And let the music play as long as there's a song to sing
Then I will stay younger than spring
Last Night When We Were Young
03:38
Last night when we were young
Love was a star
A song unsung

Life was so new
So real so right
Ages ago last night

Today the world is old
You flew away and time grew cold
Where is that star
That seemed so bright
Ages ago last night

To think that spring had depended
On merely this: a look, a kiss

To think that something so splendid
Could slip away in one little daybreak

So now let's reminisce
And recollect the sighs and the kisses
The arms that clung
When we were young last night
The Man in the Looking Glass
03:29
I've seen that face before
That face that I see in the mirror
I know that face
I've seen that face before

I knew that dopey guy
When he didn't know how to tie his tie
He stood right there and he had hair galore

The man in the looking glass
Who can he be
The man in the looking glass
Can he possibly be me

Where's our young romeo
The lad who used to sigh
Who's the middle age lothario
With the twinkle in his eye

He seem so much wiser now
Less lonely but then
Could be he's only pretending again
Man in the looking glass smiling away
How's your sacroiliac today

Where's your first love affair
That trajedy d'amour
The true love you thought would be
The end of you for sure

The man in the looking glass
Have no regrets
The man who's wise never forgets
That life is worth living if once in a while
You can look in that looking glass and smile
It Was a Very Good Year
04:30
When I was seventeen
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for small town girls
And soft summer nights
We'd hide from the lights
On the village green
When I was seventeen

When I was twenty-one
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for city girls
Who lived up the stair
With all that perfumed hair
And it came undone
When I was twenty-one

When I was thirty-five
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls
Of independent means
We'd ride in limousines
Their chauffeurs would drive
When I was thirty-five

But now the days grow short
I'm in the autumn of the year
And now I think of my life as vintage wine
From fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs
And it poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year

It was a mess of good years
When the Wind Was Green
03:25
When the wind was green
At the start of the spring
When the wind was green
Like a living thing

It was on my lips
And it's kiss was fair
You were there

When the wind was red
Like a summer wine
When the wind was red
Like your lips on mine

It caressed my fate
And it tossed my hair
You were there

Then came the fall and all of love
Came tumbling, stumbling down
Like leaves that lost to frost and found
They were flying-crying
In a brown wind dying

But the winter's come and we both should know
That the wind is white like the swirling snow
And we'll never see all the wonderful things to be seen
When the wind is green
Hello, Young Lovers
03:46
Hello young lovers who ever you are
I hope your troubles are few
All my good wishes go with you tonight
I've been in love like you

Be brave young lovers and follow your star
Be brave and faithful and true
Cling very close to each other tonight
I've been in love like you

I know how it feels to have wings on your heels
And fly down the street in a trance
You fly down a street on a chance that you'll meet
And you meet not really by chance

Don't cry young lovers what ever you do
Don't cry because I'm alone

All of my memories are happy tonight
I've had a love of my own

I've had a love of my own like yours
I've had a love of my own
I See It Now
02:53
That year in Oakland High
When I was seventeen
The grass from there to San Jose
Was high and cool and green
I see it now

Too brash and young was I
To know what time could mean
The old Acacia lawn cut down
Was felt but never seen
I see it now

That world I knew is lost to me
Loves have come and gone

The years go racing by
I live as best I can
And all at once I know it means the making of a man
I see it now

I see it now
I see it now
Once Upon a Time
03:31
Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine
And said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time
Now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care
Where did it go

Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again

Once upon a time
Never comes again
September Song
03:32
Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game

Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I'll spend with you
These precious days I'll spend with you
