A swirling sky
In shades of gray
Announced November's here
The coffee was cold
So were my hands
Lost the gloves I had last year

And it feels like snow
I don't need a forecast to know
That it looks like snow
My feet are heavy
And my legs are slow

I drove to work
Traffic crawled
Like any other day
Shoulders hunched
Pedestrians hurried
They were unaware of my gaze

I thought of a summer long since past
I thought I caught a scent of July
Fireworks and barbeques
Cold beer and fireflies

The light turned green
The guy behind me
Honked at me to go
Spaced off for a moment
Only a moment
Suddenly I felt old

Short Song Description:
Sometimes your feelings match the weather.
Long Song Description:
Sometimes the first cold snap reminds you of how quickly time is passing - and it's a little disconcerting.
Story Behind the Song:
No story really. Just thinking about how sometimes your mood and the weather strike a perfect match.
