Trying to remember

Remember these lines? Written by Tom Jones and immortalized by Harry Belafonte.

Try To Remember

Try to remember the kind of September
when life was slow and oh, so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
when grass was green and grain was yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
when you were a tender and callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember then follow

Try to remember when life was so tender
that no one wept except the willow
Try to remember when life was so tender
that dreams were kept beside your pillow
Try to remember when life was so tender
that love was an ember about to billow
Try to remember and if you remember then follow

Deep in December it’s nice to remember
although you know the snow will follow
Deep in December it’s nice to remember
without the hurt the heart is hollow
Deep in December it’s nice to remember
the fire of September that made us mellow
Deep in December our hearts should remember
and follow

I am trying to remember the kind of September, when no one wept except the willow and dreams were kept beside the pillow.
