September song    (video)

 

                                   G            Am                     F                   C

1. Our love was as strong as a lion, soft as the cotton you lie in,

                           G             Am               F    - C

    times we got hot like an iron, you and I.

                                 G                   Am                      F                  C

    Our hearts have never been broken, we were so innocent, darling,

                        G                    Am                F    - C

    we used to talk 'til the morning, you and I.

G                        Am                        F            - C

    We had that mixtape on every weekend,

                    G        - Am                  F         - C

    had it repeating,          had it repeating.

 

                        G                                      Am

You were my September song, summer lasted too long,

 F                                     C

time moves so slowly when you're only fifteen.

                         G                                      Am

You were my September song, tell me, where have you gone ?

 F                                     C

Do you remember me ? We were only fifteen.

 

              G - Am                                 F                                       C

+  And I.............I, I remember the chorus, they were singing it for us.

                            G                                       Am

    You were my September song, tell me, where have you gone ?

     F                                     C

    Do you remember me ? We were only fifteen

 

                           G                     Am                       F                    C

2. Sometimes I think that I see your face in the strangest of places,

                          G                       Am                F    - C

    down on the underground station, passing by.

                  G                        Am                       F                        C

    I get a mad sense of danger, feel like my heart couldn't take it,

                           G                        Am               F   - C

    ’cause if we met we'd be strangers, you and I.

G                          Am                    F            - C

    Still I play that mixtape every weekend,

                   G        - Am               F          - C

    got it repeating,         got it repeating.

 

                         G                                     Am

You were my September song, summer lasted too long,

 F                                     C

time moves so slowly, when you're only fifteen.

                         G                                       Am

You were my September song, tell me, where have you gone ?

 F                                     C

Do you remember me ? We were only fifteen.

 

             G - Am                                 F                                       C

+  And I............I, I remember the chorus, they were singing it for us.

                       G                                    Am

    I hear that September song that I'm singing along,

       F                                      C

    thinking 'bout you and me, oh, what a melody !

 

  Am                                 C7                           F - Dm           G

+     And as the years go by, you will still be mi.......ne, be mine !

                     G - Am - F         - C

    You are mi..............ne !

 

+  CHORUS

 

             G - Am                                 F                                       C

+  And I............I, I remember the chorus, they were singing it for us.

                             G                         - Am

    You were my September song,

                                 F                                        C

    I remember the chorus, they were singing it for us.
