Three days, no happy endings, highways, I’m hallucinating.
I wish I wasn’t so mathmatic. I wish I hadn’t overheated.
Heartbeats across a crowded room. April fool, give me a week or two.
These drinks are hitting me so hard. I wish I had an angel watching over me.

Set up another round, it’s raining.
Six more drinks before I drown.
Bottoms up and spirits down.
Have my words lost all weight?
This is weighing on me.
Have I got nothing left to say?

Now I remember all the words. Through my smokey eyes, a blurred hotel room stirred.
I waited to hear you through the static. Three more cigarettes. A time to call off all regrets.
This is every selfish song. This is all those moments bleeding. Maybe I made a huge mistake.
I always thought that it would come to this. March came without a cost. April falls into the dream again.
In May I’ll cut myself off at a loss for words. It doesn’t mean I’m really over it.

And on the 13th of September, I swear I’ll remember, even if it doesn’t make any sense.
March 30th will be desperate. A happy birthday to me. What a spineless overstatement.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of how i treat my own birthday, how i hide it, and how i'm actually ashamed of the date and find no real reason to display it much less wish myself a happy birthday.

    it also reminds me of how i view certain areas of the year in relation with the past, a lot.
