I saw your headlights in the window
My face was pressed against the glass
I waited for years for you to return before I learned
That you were never coming back

I'm gonna close my eyes before I start to scream

I'm dwelling on things I've never noticed
You won't save yourself, you'll never save me
I only stumbled once for a moment, it was over
I think I'll close my eyes before I start to scream

You said today's the day goodbye just won't wait

(Chorus)
And if you need me to, I'll wait until September
It's come and gone, November's on it's way
So easy to forget and hard to remember, I remember
The way to getting back our self-esteem

The lines on your face are getting clearer
To me you'll always be 23
They said you wouldn't hold on too much longer
But you're so much stronger than they ever thought you'd be

I'm gonna open up and tell you everything

(Chorus)
And if you need me to, I'll wait until September
It's come and gone, November's on it's way
So easy to forget and hard to remember, I remember
The way to getting back our self-esteem

(Bridge)
Oh yeah, no regrets
You got no one left
I hope that every step reminds you of the ones that you left

(Chorus)
And if you need me to, I'll wait until September, yeah
It's come and gone, November's on it's way, on it's way, yeah
So easy to forget and hard to remember, I remember
The way to getting back our self-esteem, oh yeah
Back our self-esteem, oh

They said you wouldn't hold on too much longer
But you're so much stronger than they ever thought you'd be

    It remembers me of every past relationship that i have been in.. Which up to this point, has ended up in a nightmare that just keeps repeating itself.

    Listening to september, it lets me remember that no matter how hard things got, or are getting. There will be a "tomorrow" and i can't let the past bring me down.. Or i will never be able to move forward.
