Late September - Lyrics

When it's closing time in late September
And the street lights
Search for shadows on my mind
When the bars all holler last call
And the moon's on her descent
I stagger towards the morning
A new day to begin
Counting down to closing time again

She swears my youthful glow is only hiding
Just beyond the borders of my mind
But these rollin' hills don't bind me
They simply remind me
The sun is sinking low
And all I've left behind me
Counting down to closing time again

Darlin' I've been thinking
Is it selfish pride
Keeps a man from sharing
All the tears he hides?

‘Cause when it's closing time in late September
And the summer turns slowly into fall
Our mother, with such splendor
Dies in brilliant color
Thoughts once put together
By a hospital room window
Counting down to closing time again

Darlin' I've been thinking
Is it selfish pride
Keeps a man from sharing
All the tears he hides?

‘Cause when it's closing time in late September
It's hard to hide how much I miss her so
As a tenderness of memories
Unfolds itself within me
With such gravity unyielding
In the land of the living
Counting down to closing time again
