Muddy handprints and wonky teeth
A promise made that I know I will keep
Even though it was made
In those careless days
Of naivety.

Pinky promises
And contracts signed,
A closer pair you will never find
Good luck trying.

And the reason why it's taken me so long
To write such a mediocre song is because
I'll never be able to show you how proud I am.

We've gone from braces to lipstick,
From bikes to the road
From doodles and stories to coursework on our own
From boyfriend to boyfriend I've watched you grow
Into the beautiful Alice I'm so proud to know;
I love you so.

It's pretty clear that we are strong
I'd like to say the wedding is still on!
But in all sincerity, you're being here with me for life.

And the red sofa bed is I don't know where
And the Now 69 album's not been played for years
But look at us now; we'd still do it if we could.

And the reason why it's taken me so long
To write such a mediocre song is because
I'll never be able to show you how proud I am.

We've gone from braces to lipstick,
From bikes to the road
From doodles and stories to coursework on our own
From boyfriend to boyfriend I've watched you grow
Into the beautiful Alice I'm so proud to know;
I love you so.

And we're certainly not bluetooth buddies anymore.
And I can't just gather up my Pj's and knock on your door.
And my phone doesn't ring to tell me you're 5 minutes away
But Alice Kristina Webb, you're here to stay.

And the reason why it's taken me so long
To write such a mediocre song is because
I'll never be able to show you how proud I am.

We've gone from braces to lipstick,
From bikes to the road
From doodles and stories to coursework on our own
From boyfriend to boyfriend I've watched you grow
Into the beautiful Alice I'm so proud to know;
I love you so.
