  Summer song in the autumn, for you didn't catch

     Gm            D
the colour of the falling leaves.

Bm                    F    (F)
  So many words have been spoken which you

 G            Gm          D
didn't understand and so couldn't believe.

         Am/a             E*         Gm          Fsus4
And the song that you're humming is yesterday's tune -

 Am              Em+g    Gm      D
someone who you love is leaving you.


Bm                       F                  G           Gm   D
  You walked in sunshine   by the sea with gulls crying overhead

Bm                      F                  G        Gm    D
  but now the skies are   cloudy, and the love you had is   dead.

         Am/a    E*             Gm       Fsus4
And the water recedes from the farthest dunes -

 Am              Em+g     Gm     D
someone who you loved is leaving   you.


F#m                 C#*
  You remember the happiness you had

        G                    F#m
as you laughed along in the sun

F#m                     C#*
  but now your eyes are   coming dull,

           G                A
there's a numbness on your tongue....


Bm                    F                 G
  You look out at the   water which is calling you

Gm          D 
  over the wind,

Bm                          F               G     
  then you throw aside your   handbag and slowly

 Gm        D
walk right in.


        Am/a  E*           Gm          Fsus4
And tomorrow you'll be in yesterday's news:

 Am              Em+g      Gm   D
someone who you loved has left you.

        Am/a  E*           Gm          Fsus4
Yes tomorrow you'll be in yesterday's news:

 Am              Em+g      Gm   D
someone who you loved has left you.
