One by one, year after year,
I struck off another place
I wanted to spend my birthday.
- The Bowling Alley
- Our Local Swimming Pool
every party, a carbon copy
of whoever’s birthday was last.
Then, there was a time
when the excitement of birthdays died
down, and the thought of getting older
scared me, because I knew I was
one step closer to a future
Now, every time my birthday
rolls around, I don’t focus
There is no where else I’d rather spend
my birthday, than sitting on the beach with you.
