A Girl’s Name

 

I remember the scent of autumn

And summer's endless days

But December beats all of them

Though spring's a close second place

 

But these days, something feels so strange

The change of the seasons don't hold the same meaning

I've been so fixated on trying to make it

I haven't looked up to see the time that it's taken

I'm in such a haze, I heard someone say the word summer and

I thought it was a girl's name

 

Time does not last as long as it used to

I watch the weeks turn into years

When I look back on all we went through

I just can't hold back the tears

 

Because these days, something feels so strange

Our change in relation's got me contemplating

As the days get warmer, it feels like torture

It's bringing me back when I need to move forward

Oh it's such a shame, when I heard someone say the word summer

All I thought of was a girl's name

 

These expectations had friends in me

They said, "Let's go explore."

But sometimes friends turn into enemies

And now I'm not excited anymore

 

Because these days, something feels so strange

All this confusion is just an illusion

Oh, It's just a prank pulled on me by my brain

I will be fine, in just a few months' time

But as of today when I hear someone say the word summer

All I’m hearing is a girl's name
