Lyrics

The Eighth of September

Written By: Lisa Gomez


THE DAY I MET YOU I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER. IT WAS A WINDY DAY ON THE EIGHTH OF SEPTEMBER.

WE BUMPED INTO EACH OTHER WHILE I WAS ON THE PHONE.
YOU SAID EXCUSE ME AND BEFORE I KNEW IT YOU WERE GONE.

I’LL NEVER FORGET THE FEELING I HAD. MY HEART WAS RACING AND THEN I TURNED SAD. I THOUGHT THE MOMENT PASSED AND IT WASN’T MEANT TO BE. UNTIL YOU
FOUND YOUR WAY BACK TO ME.

I KNEW RIGHT THEN WE WOULD BE TOGETHER SOON.
IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE WE BECAME THE BRIDE AND GROOM.

IT’S BEEN A FEW YEARS NOW AND SLOWLY WE HAVE CHANGED.
OUR PRIORITIES HAVE SHIFTED AND THEY’RE SO REARRANGED.

THE PAPERS CAME TODAY FOR ME TO SIGN. I HOPE IT’S WORTH IT FOR YOU TO LEAVE THE MEMORIES BEHIND. YOU SAID OUR LOVE WOULD LAST FOR ALL ETERNITY.
HOW CAN YOU GO BACK ON THE VOWS YOU SAID TO ME?

I’LL NEVER FORGET THE FEELING I HAD. MY HEART WAS RACING AND THEN I TURNED SAD. I THOUGHT THE MOMENT PASSED AND IT WASN’T MEANT TO BE. UNTIL YOU FOUND YOUR WAY BACK TO ME.

WE KEPT OUR PROMISE TO START OVER AGAIN. IT WASN’T THE SAME, IT WAS THE BEST IT HAD EVER BEEN.

AS TIME WENT ON, YOU FELL ILL.
THEY SAID YOU WOULDN’T MAKE IT BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T HAVE THE WILL. I CRIED AND I PRAYED THAT IT WASN’T TRUE. I KNEW YOU HAD THE STRENGTH AND COURAGE TOO.

THINGS WERE LOOKING GRIM. IT SEEMED ALL HOPE WAS GONE. I HAD NEVER FELT SO EMPTY AND ALL ALONE.

I’LL NEVER FORGET THE FEELING I HAD. MY HEART WAS RACING AND THEN I TURNED SAD. I THOUGHT THE MOMENT PASSED AND IT WASN’T MEANT TO BE. UNTIL YOU
FOUND YOUR WAY BACK TO ME.

THEY SAID IT WAS A MIRACLE FOR YOU TO SURVIVE. I’M JUST SO THANKFUL THAT YOU ARE STILL ALIVE. LATER THAT EVENING I STARTED TO REMEMBER, IT WAS THE SAME DATE WHEN I FIRST MET YOU, THE EIGHTH OF SEPTEMBER.
