Goodbye to Summer

A couple of months or so ago I heard a song on the radio but for some reason didn't retain many of the lyrics (and the particular bits I did recall I remembered slightly inaccurately), and I failed to find it on Google the next day. So, as these things do, the question of what the song was and what it was about bugged me for a few weeks. Fortunately, about three weeks ago I heard it again.

Forever Autumn by Jeff Wayne, Paul Vigrass and Jerry Osborne is best known in the version sung by Justin Hayward in Jeff Wayne's 1978 project which, for reasons which may or may not become clear, I'll not name if you don't already know it. However, it was apparently released as a single in its own right in 1972.

So, ignoring the later project and considering the song as a self-contained work…

Poll #354138 Forever Autumn

What do you think the song is about?

Someone who died
Someone who had to move away
Someone who broke off a relationship
The rapid approach of cold weather
I've a much better idea…

What, then?
