Back In June


Back in June, flowers bloomed, spring hung in the air
Hope was still burning and life still seemed fair
I still believed that somewhere God cared

It was just a piece of news but how it changed my life
I knew right then that first day of July
As the birds’ pretty songs all turned sad overnight
That life could never ever be like
Last June when you were alive

I never knew your family
Nor do I think that they’d heard of me
So I spend the whole month of July
Sad ’cause I never did say good-bye
In June when you were alive
In June when you were alive

The skies were once a little more blue
The sun once shone a little more bright
More stars blanketed the night
Back in June when you were alive
