All the same, as the green leaves of summer turn into beautiful hues of yellow and orange... falling gently to the color-coated ground... those who are lonely hearts will feel their hearts melting deep inside...aching and aching as loved ones are remembered and dearly missed. This is always one of the four seasons in the West that deeply stirs one's soul...
Here's one of my favorite French singers of all time, Francois Hardy, singing a gut-wrenching melancholic song, "Autumn Rendzevous" and yeah, fellas, to me this talented and beautiful lady reminds us of those attractive lost loves in our life wherever they are... and of what a different life could be....
Of course, it's past autumn and winter right now but don't miss the memorable experience this year!
There have been some requests for the lyrics... so here it is:
Now the summer days are ending
Leaves are falling, red and gold.
Now the warmth of love is fading
And the nights are getting cold.
From the east the wind is blowing
Now the sky's no longer blue
Overhead the clouds are growing
Summer's gone and so are you.
You wanted to be free
Love was just a game to you
And you never meant to be
At this autumn rendezvous.
All the happiness life gave me
Changed to emptiness today.
Now that you no longer love me
Autumn's come, it's here to stay.
Life seems empty now without you.
It's not easy to forget
I may learn to live without you
But I'll always feel regret.
I would cry but it's no good
Tears won't bring you back to me
Though I'd stop you if I could
I can't change what has to be.
With the years I'll still remember
And in time the hurt will go;
I'll forget this sad September
And be glad I loved you so.
