lyrics

You had to come out of somewhere
So you came out of there
To a girl's chagrin you're trying to get back in
You love to sit and stare
On the morning of your birthday
You woke up and said
I can't believe that we were made
From bouncing on a bed
I can't believe that people carry
Other people inside of them
If not for having found my way out
I'd be skeptical as sin
We had to get back to something
So we got back to god
Some down on our knees
Some with a knowing nod
On the morning of your birthday
You woke up and said
Today is just like any day
Will you love me when I'm dead?
I can't believe we are as old
As old as we've become
I can't believe we've come this far
And then you stuck out your opposable thumb
We had to get somewhere
And so we hitched a ride
Downtown to kick the night around
And find a place to hide
In the morning it was your birthday
You woke up and said
I cannot stop the time
But I can stay in bed
Then we made love so sweet
It put the birthday cake to shame
I cried out happy birthday, baby
You said God, I'm late for work again
Oooh, ooooh, oooooh
Oooh, ooooh, oooooh
Oh we had to get back to something
So we got back to bed
One hundred degrees
Me on my knees
And thunder overhead
