about

Summer 2020 was the toughest part of the year for me personally. Playing music with friends on a hot summer night out on the porch seemed like a heavenly dream, and a lonesome feeling was all around me. also, a note on the lyrics, originally it was Perhaps come September..... but as the pandemic raged on and on, i changed it to December.

lyrics

Summer in Austin

All week long they’ve been predicting hurricane winds and 3 days of rain.
Yesterday the wind started blowing, dark clouds moved in but the rain never came.

Summer in Austin this year
it gets so lonesome when no one is near
life has changed from how we remember
perhaps come December we’ll be close again.

Some old friends have gone by the wayside
then unexpectedly some have stepped in
out the window the wide world’s in trouble
it’s time to redouble some good will again

Summer in Austin this year
some days fill up like a bucket of tears
life has changed from how we remember
perhaps come December we’ll be close again.
