Liner Notes: 

Based on a true story.

The hubby-man goes to GenCon every year in August, as a much-prized GameMaster, and I stay home with the cat. Time alone is nice, but eventually, I'm happy he's come back.

Lyrics: 

ba ba ba ba, sweet autumn air
i feel you coming after me
you'll sing the trees gold
till they're bare
and i will fake a harmony--

i love the summer
when it's passing
when harvest moon is on the rise
i love the earthed smell
of the raining
and the firelight in his eyes

ba ba ba ba, my darling's flying
home tomorrow
i'll be waiting near the door
we'll walk the evening under August stars
forgetting troubles July wore

i love the summer
when it's passing
when harvest moon is on the rise
i love the earthed smell
of the raining
and the firelight in his eyes

i love the summer
when it's passing
when harvest moon is on the rise
i love the earthed smell
of the raining
and August shining in his eyes

That's very pretty and picturesque. Wonderful images. I like the concept of leaving the last month behind and embracing the wonderful new time that has come.

I can feel the skip in your proverbial step in this; it’s very loving, first of all, and full of that nudge of excitement I always feel as summer is being shaken off too. Very musical just to read!

This is amazing! Makes me like August. (Actually, I'm ok with it, but it's probably my least favorite month.)
You string together lines so nicely here - a sentence structure that could be sung with jazz-folk sultriness. Good stuff.

First, I liked up GenCon because I've never heard of it...something to do with board games I think...something else I saw about Fan Film Festival. I'll look at the lyrics and see what it is.

Looking at the lyrics...the ba ba ba ba comes off the tongue nicely, I know, I just tried it...sweet autumn air. Very nice.Nice visual with autumn and the gold trees. Nice move through time into summer now and we get a visual of firelight in his eyes. Yes, it is August now...too hot here for star watching but sounds like a great idea. Chorus again now with the nice visuals. Yes, the harvest moon on the rise is very good. I like the structure of your lyrics on this song moving through the seasons and some key elements like smell, rain, moon, and stars etc. Very good, I like it a lot.
