about

Labor Day weekend with my family was interrupted by bad news. This year, September begins with a funeral in Atlanta, and the trip that I must take this Thursday weighs heavy on my mind. This song is an attempt to sort out some of those feelings. Funeral songs are all to common on my website, but this one is different from the others. Typically I’ve gone for a quiet acoustic piece. This time I let the feelings move a little more in a number that takes a few more chances. Also, unlike in other similarly themed songs, I let myself get a little angry in this one. But as death is a part of life, the anger is a bit directionless -- a gentle kind of anger. It is an anger at a lack of understanding. I doubt if one can ever really understand.

lyrics

Sing me down Atlanta
Gonna shake the ground for answers
God’s got other plans
He’s gonna let us in on after

And I feel like turning back
But I never ever do

Let me down September
Gonna boil and break to remember
The way you always decend
You are the sour kind of friend
September

And it always looks the same
With a gray and scattered sky
And I feel like turning back
But I never ever do
