As summer draws in

As the summer draws in
Cold autumn mornings and new winter wardrobes
Suntans have faded and overdrafts grown
As the summer draws to a close
Town supermarkets start discounted shelves
Two-for-one beach towels and cheap parasols

In June we danced under festival stars
September we’re drifting apart
I can’t shake the feeling
I’m all of a sudden consigned to the summer recycling bin
Are you starting again?
As the summer draws in
Is this how it all ends?
Are you starting again?
As the summer draws in

As the summer draws in
Vacation romances and summer encounters
Are doused like the charcoal on barbeque sets
As the summer draws to a close
June to September has been and it’s gone
You’re turning the clocks back in more ways than one

In June you said I looked good in the sun
But now that the sky’s overcast
The freckles that came that came have now faded away
And I feel like your cheap summer holiday fun
Now you’re starting again
As the summer draws in
This is how it all ends
Now you’re starting again
As the summer draws in
