my lyricsbox
There's a cross above the baby's bed
a savior in her dreams
but she was not delivered then
and the baby became me
There's a light inside the darkened room
a footstep on the stairs
a door that I forever close
to leave those memories there

So when the shadows lengthen
into the evening sun
first there's summer, then I'll let you in

September when it comes

I plan to crawl outside these walls
close my eyes and see
and fall into your heart and arms
of those who wait for me
I cannot move the mountain now
I can no longer run
I cannot be who I was then
in a way I never was

I watch the clouds go sailing
I watch the clock and sun
oh, I watch myself depending on
September when it comes

When the shadows lengthen
and burn away the past
they will fly me like an angel to
a place where I can rest
When this begins I'll let you in
September when it comes
This song is from the album "Very Best Of".
