birthdays, music, writing & all

do you remember when we first met?
I sure do
it was some time in early september
but you were lazy about it
you made me wait around
I was so crazy about you, I didn't mind

so I was late for class
I locked my bike to yours
it wasn't hard to find
you painted flowers on
I guess that I was afraid that if you rolled away
you might not roll back my direction real soon

But I was crazy about you then and now the craziest thing of all
over ten years have gone by
and your still mine
we're locked in time
let's rewind

do you remember when we first moved in together
the piano took up the living
you played me boogie woogie I played you love songs
you'd say we're playing house
now you still say we are

we built our getaway
up in a tree we found
we felt so far away
but we were still in town
now I remember watching that old tree burn down
I took a picture that I don't like to look at

Well all these times they come and go and alone don't seem so long
over ten years have gone by
we can't rewind
we're locked in time
but you're still mine.
Do you remember?
