August Is Over
by We the Kings



Say a prayer
The summer nights are dead
The fall is coming
We were careless hearts who got caught up in this
You were shy
Till the night you drove me wild
And you crashed into me
And I won't lie
I wish it lasted a lifetime
Please stay-ay-ay-ay
Won't you stay-ay-ay-ay
Tonight

Breathe it in deep and say goodbye
The saddest song I'll ever write
For anyone, anytime
Breathe it in deep before I say
I can feel us slip away
You're almost gone
You're as good as gone
August is over

Now we wait
Cause August had to end
All our bags are packed
Just two broken hearts that got caught up in this
I deny
That tomorrow you'll be gone
And so far from me
It's something strange
Never loved the same way
Please stay-ay-ay-ay
Won't you stay-ay-ay-ay
Tonight

Breathe it in deep and say goodbye
The saddest song I'll ever write
For anyone, anytime
Breathe it in deep before I say
I can feel us slip away
You're almost gone
You're as good as gone
August is over

We can try to drown it out
But it never stops breathing
We can take it all in but it never slows down
We've come down from that cloud
Well say-ay-ay-ay
What you gotta say-ay-ay-ay
Please say-ay-ay-ay
What you gotta say
Whoa-a oh-oh
Whoa-a oh-oh

Breathe it in deeps and say goodbye
The saddest song I'll ever write
For anyone, anytime
Breathe it in deep before I say
I can feel us slip away
You're almost gone
You're as good as gone
August is over
We're not the reason
August is over
