I google'd "July song", and found some very interesting lyrics. The song is July, recorded by British band Ocean Colour Scene. The more I listen to the song the more I like it.

link to OCS music video on youtube.com

Read a book for each line of the song.
(I'm interested to see how your book corresponds with its line.)
You can read as many or as few as you want.
No page limits. Re-reads are okay.

July
It's warm outside
But I can hear the snow
Falling on my window
I had to go away
To somewhere deeper down
I know it's my mistake
To take off out of this town
And June becomes July

This road's on fire
And my train's running slow
It rains against my window
I had to get away
To somewhere no-one knows
I know it's my mistake
To take off now in this way
And June becomes July

The air is thin
When you're above the clouds
I see them from my window
It's strange to get away now
To somewhere no-one goes
I know it's my mistake
But I don't even know now
And June becomes July
And June becomes July
