ninety-eight: “your birthday present” by the good life.

key west. 25 september 2012.

In this cottage, I can barely breathe. You’re my best worst mistake. End of story.

Happy birthday…

Still I wonder how you are
And what became of all of this
Did you cry when winter’s hands
Stole you from that fertile grave?
Did your mother hold you dear
To ease the burden of your pain?
Swallowed out into the light
Happy birthday

Still I wonder how you are
And how you ever came to be
I was nothing but a hole
You nestled in and fell asleep
Are you sad when you’re awake
Torn away from fertile dreams?
Didn’t want to wake you up
I’m still sorry
Happy birthday

Do you wonder how I am
What ever became of me?
Do you envision my thin face
Where the beaten go to dream?
I didn’t want to cut the cord
You suck the life right out of me
Do you regret choices you’ve made?
I guess I was a mistake
I guess I was a mistake
I guess I was a mistake
I guess I’m your big mistake
Well, happy birthday anyway
Happy birthday
