At the end of the summer there's a couple of days
Before the weather starts shiftin' and changin' it's ways
The winds blow so gently on the things lovers do
That was the season when I first met you

We fell so deep in love, nothin' to fear
It came to be our favorite time of year
Now every autumn makes a bittersweet call
I'm missin' you darlin' in the first days of fall

It's early September, school days once more
I watch the little kids walk by my door
We always planned to have some of our own
But that was the old days, how far they have flown

I smile at the neighbor boy makin' his way
My heart starts sinkin' and I turn away
To a picture of you and me there on the wall
I'm missin' you darlin' in the first days of fall

I try to stand tall, to keep up my pride
Hiding the big hole that's deep here inside
I'm a man with no purpose, just walkin' around
Among lovers and children, alone in their crowd

No use in tryin' to plan out my day
It's just gonna end in the same silent way
This time of year it's no use at all
I'm missin' you darlin' in the first days of fall
Now every autumn makes a bittersweet call
I'm missin' you darlin' in the first days of fall
I'm missin' you darlin' in the first days of fall
