Last October
Last October

I trembled when you touched me...
Last October, when you had me...
I remember the smell of pine trees,
And fallen leaves,
And Halloween....
We justified our selfishness.
And you had the perfect kiss.
The kind of charm I still miss--
I'll admit this.
Well, winter blew in
Like a whirlwind;
And I froze inside
Your perfect lies.
And I finally blinked
My newborn eyes
In April's thawing sunlight.
But that song we heard on the radio,
When I touched your fingers while you drove.
I remember both our beating hearts
While I fell apart.
This was never smart.
The first snow came when I had given in.
I went to you on a selfish whim.
Do I regret when we said we would?
I didn't think we should--
But no, I never could.
Even though winter raged through,
And tore my heart from you.
And I could barely breathe
When you didn't love me.
But I could finally see
There's no you and me.
There will never be.
Well, sometimes when I'm driving home
I hear that song on the radio.
I smile and go back in time
To the boy that lied
When he said he was mine...
Well, winter blew in
Like a whirlwind.
And I fell into
My image of you.
And I finally woke
When the real you spoke;
And your facade
Went up in smoke.
Well, I remember when you touched me...
Last October, when you had me....
