A Song for September

TryToRemember

If there’s a song that just lulls you into fits of nostalgia, and makes you sit back and dream of the old days in sepia-toned frames, this would be it. You would expect no less from a song with words like “try to remember” repeated every other line. Nevertheless it’s a good song to accompany old home videos.

Made famous by Tom Jones and scores of other old singers, the song also made an appearance in movies like ‘The Fantasticks’ and ‘City of Glass’. Well here’s to a time when life was slow and mellow.

Try to remember

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow, follow

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow, follow

Deep in December, it’s nice to remember,
Although you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December, it’s nice to remember,
Without a hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December, it’s nice to remember,
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December, our hearts should remember
Then follow, follow
