FOUND A PHOTOGRAPH
THE ONLY ONE I HAVE
CAN ALMOST HEAR YOU LAUGHING
ON YOUR BIRTHDAY

THAT WAS YOU AND ME
MUST BE ‘92 OR ‘3
UNDERNEATH THE MARQUEE
ON YOUR BIRTHDAY

SEEMS LONG AGO
BUT I DO RECALL THAT SHOW
AND HOW YOU SANG
LOUD AS THE BAND
SOMEONE TOOK OUR PICTURE
MAYBE ONE MANY TOO MANY DRINKS, BUT WE WERE
WALKING BACK TO YOUR HOUSE
HAND IN HAND

FLOWERS IN YOUR HAIR
I LED YOU UP THE STAIRS
AND ALL YOUR FRIENDS WERE THERE
ON YOUR BIRTHDAY

DANDELION WINE
INCANDESCANT LIGHT
EVERYONE’S INVITED
TO YOUR BIRTHDAY

WAITED FOR A YEAR
AND I WASTED SOME TEARS
IMAGINING YOU'D
COME ROUND AGAIN
ONE DAY YOU WAKE UP
AND YOU'RE OVER THE BREAKUP
BUT YOU FIND MYSELF REMEMBERING
NOW AND THEN

WE HAD ELABORATE PLANS
AND SHORT ATTENTION SPANS
TOO MANY BLACK AND TANS
BACK IN THOSE DAYS

ONCE AND FUTURE PAST
IT ENDED ALL TOO FAST
NOTHING SEEMS TO LAST
EXCEPT FOR BIRTHDAYS
ARE YOU GOING OUT
ON YOUR BIRTHDAY
WILL YOU THINK ABOUT ME
ON YOUR BIRTHDAY
