GOODBYE JULY

The beach and the fireworks are quiet.
Mid-summer heat lingers on.
This is the time for good-byeing.
Beach days of summer are gone.
Thanks for the fond memories.
Thanks for the kisses of youth.
Thanks for the light melodies,
and the deeper notes of the truth.

Chorus
Goodbye July !
Goodbye friends of the beach.
No need for asking "why".
We remember the good things you teach.
In days to come, we'll revisit, in snapshots and many a sigh.
It won't be forgotten by distance, just because we say Goodbye July !

The laughter will visit our hearts,
in the quiet time of the night.
Remember we're never apart,
if we don't let the memory die.
Memory is the treasure of years,
stored in a place in the heart.
It saves more of the smiles, than the tears.
It keeps us from drifting apart.

Chorus
Goodbye July !
Goodbye friends of the beach.
No need for asking "why".
We remember the good things you teach.
In days to come, we'll revisit, in snapshots and many a sigh.
It won't be forgotten by distance, just because we say Goodbye July
