August in April
So I started this in April. But I couldn't get the lyrics sorted until yesterday. Which is July.
This is a song about a complicated uncomplicated relationship. It also seems to be a bit about climate change. Again. Because everything I write these days seems to have something to do with that. The fact we had August temperatures in April this year is what inspired the title.
Am F Dm - three chords and a heartbeat.
Boy I know you
So, so well
I know you won’t ask me
Just how I can tell
That you spent all last winter with her
But I don’t care I want my heaven on earth
So come on over sit in the shade
And you’ll see your bed is already made
It’s fine line
Between a lie and kindness
Oh boy it’s getting hot inside
Your thirst and your hunger
I'm barely alive
Hell got nothing on this afternoon
Season’s turning a bit too soon
Now put your cards on the table.
I gotta know if you’re able
Boy put your cards on the table
We are August in April
Boy, come on now
I’m not wrong
And I know you understand
Summer don’t last long
By Autumn I’ll be back with him
Raising heaven on earth it ain’t no sin
When the sun goes down so goes the shade
I like to keep my bed unmade
It’s a fine line
Between a lie and a kindness
