SWEET SEPTEMBER RAIN FALLING DOWN WASH AWAY THE PAIN OF ALL MY YESTERDAYS SOMETIMES I JUST WONDER WHAT MORE COULD I HAVE DONE? TAKE YOU BY THE HAND LEAD YOU TO THE SUN? BUT WOULD YOU EVER HAVE PLAYED THAT PART? WOULD YOU HAVE LET IT GO? ALL I KNOW IS YOU BROKE MY HEART I NEVER LET IT SHOW CAN YOU HEAR ME THROUGH THE DARKNESS? I’M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME MY HEART IS HEAVY WITH THIS SADNESS WE’LL NEVER MEET AGAIN. STANDING AT THE STATION I WAS WATCHING YOU LEAVE RUSHING AWAY FROM ALL YOUR YESTERDAYS PEOPLE SAID YOUR BROTHER HE JUST WANTS TO HAVE FUN TO CLIMB OUT FROM THE SHADOWS PLAY OUT IN THE SUN BUT YOU WOULD NEVER PLAY THAT PART YOU NEVER LET IT GO NOW I HAVE MY BROKEN HEART AND YOU WILL NEVER KNOW CAN YOU HEAR ME THROUGH THE DARKNESS? I’M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME MY HEART IS HEAVY WITH THIS SADNESS I WON’T SEE YOU AGAIN CALLING OUT CALLING OUT YOUR NAME CALLING OUT CALLING OUT YOUR NAME CALLING OUT I’M CALLING OUT YOUR NAME… © 2017 Don Gordon.
