7 Years Bad LuckBirthdays

we had the best of times
we did not sleep all summer
like curtains we were swaying in the breeze
there were no second thoughts
we drowned ourselves in liquor

and ignored the vultures circling in the sky
now all the memories
of the times we spent together
are washed out like the black from all my shirts
I only took a nap for what felt like a minute
fell asleep young, now I'm old forever
do you ever feel the same?

bottoms up it's someone's birthday once again
another year has come and gone
there was sunshine there was some rain
with all the past left in the past
this world's a better place at last

we had the best of times
we did not sleep all summer
the curtains were all torn out by the wind
we couldn't stop our thoughts
we drowned ourselves in liquor
and fell prey to all the vultures in the sky
do you ever feel the same?

happy birthday, raise your glasses once again
don't you wait there for the sun
when we can swim out in the rain
with all the past left in the past
this world's a better place at last
the years have come and gone
they're buried somewhere in this town
we're all just memories in every breath
in every sound, happy birthday!
