I'm too old to get divorced
Better stay the course
'Cause before long
I'll be wakin' up tired every day

And I'm too old to make new friends
Better make amends
Time to empty out the junk drawer
For those kind of words I used to say

So I make my case
On scented stationary
Sad and sweet,
Like a canary with a cold

Did I break my promise?
I've just been so nervous
I think I lost a hair
For every lie I told

But I hate to think that this might be
The last thing that I say to you
I still could run away with you
If you'll meet me in a dream

And I'm so silly since I met you, honey
I sing myself to sleep
You have made an old man happy,
Josephine

And I remember Central Park
You were waiting for the carousel to start
Side-saddle so you wouldn't tear your homemade skirt
You had a ponytail and a pink t-shirt

And I remember visiting
The dorm on 57th Street
Where the other girls on the Frisbee team
Thought I was your dad

And it's safe to say that this might be
The hardest thing I'll ever do
Perhaps one day I'll send for you
Assuming I'm alive

And all those pretty things
We told each other,
We meant them at the time
Now we need them more than ever

But I hate to think that this might be
The last thing that I say to you
I still could run away with you
If you'll meet me in a dream

And I'm so silly since I met you, honey
I sing myself to sleep
You have made an old man happy,
Josephine

Bless your heart for who you are,
My Josephine
