about

Fall is a wonderful, melancholy season – a heady mix of endings and beginnings. I wrote this song after a sunny October day, having a crowd of family and friends over for Thanksgiving and to celebrate my belated
birthday. At one point, I found myself alone, outside by the fire, and I was particularly missing my parents and reflecting on the fact that as we get older, there are more empty chairs around the table. To combat
this sadness, my wife Cheryl has often pointed out that you simply need to focus on the younger generation- their youthful energy will soon fill those empty spaces.

lyrics

October

Well hello again dear October,
I’ve missed you my friend, has it really been a year
Since you last painted over
The lines on the finely cut grass?

As I grow another year older,
The leaves turn another shade bolder
And the night’s uncaringly colder,
As we’re touched by that first blush of fall

Summer is finally over,
And winter’s around the corner
And though everything looks like it’s dying,
It’s perfectly exciting

Throw a football and grab a sweater,
Light a fire – nothing is better
Drink a whiskey or a strong tea,
Walk outside and breathe in deeply

Breathe in deeply,
Breathe in deeply,
Life can be heavy
So just let it fall

Now my birthday cake is waiting
But I’m outside hesitating
‘Cause there are spaces at the table
And I know that I’m not able
To blow a candle and wish them all back
And things only work like that in fables
'Cause life is heavy, life is heavy, so breathe in deeply

Breathe in deeply,
Breathe in deeply,
Life can be heavy
So just let it fall
Just let it fall.
