MELANCHOLY SUMMER (Andy Spain) Up and down the pavement It was almost the greatest With your green leaves turning And my aversion to learning Melancholy Summer, Are you leaving me tonight? You always said we'd be alright With my heart in pieces As the chill increases Will you still remember Anything in September? Melancholy Summer, Are you leaving me tonight? You always said we'd be alright
RUNDOWN CARNIVAL OF LOVE (Andy Spain) Women will chase you down Like they're drunk out of their minds Play all kinds of tricks on you Till they make you call out their name Once they win your heart Somehow they don't want you no more Just like a booby prize Won in a carnival game Can't be the lonely one Sure you're not the only one Everybody gets to take a ride But no one's ever been satisfied In the rundown carnival of love Paper says it's gonna snow So you dream of where you'd go If you had a month or two Just take off and catch a clue Get that girl out of your thoughts Commit deeds without getting caught Take on a new identity Just like the man you want to be Inside your lonely dream You can still feel the steam Of the way she held your self-esteem And no one's gonna care if you scream In the rundown carnival of love Back to the shooting gallery Show yourself you ain't done yet And you can't see her anyway Where the broken sights are fixed When you've blasted her from your mind Go off and feed your baser needs Just remember we're all decoys Set up for Cupid's kicks You just keep falling down Like that old circus clown And you can't even make a sound And there ain't much laughter to be found In the rundown carnival of love
LONER OCTOBER (Andy Spain) There's nothing quite as right As a loner in October The chilly wind reflective of The coldness of his insides And the leaves, dropping off of twisted branches Are a tribute to his solitude We dress thicker in fall and winter Our extra vestments create a shield His posture is his armor So he is right at home The long shadows of evening Make it easy for him to hide As he careens between them Unnoticed Everything's a little darker in October Everything a little drier A little grayer A little more dead A little more gone from this world So he is right at home


A collection of songs evoking the mysterious nature of Autumn. An introspective, moody set to lay back and enjoy.
