A song about the realities of time and love, written with music by my friend Rob Curtis.


Took all of 17 to lick my wounds
You’ll never know just what you’ve done
Oh but I took a photograph of your bedroom
And I put up walls to write on
But anyway there’s sure to be some sunny spells ahead
I was dreaming in your bed
There’s gotta be an easier way to clear your head
Ode to myself

So did she tell you to cut your hair at 22
Or was it the adult thing to do
While washing out your memories
Like when you said you’d marry me
Build a treehouse and never leave
Oh but anyway there’s sure to be some hungry mouths ahead
Co-sleeping in your bed
And there’s surely no nicer way to be mislead
Ode to myself

So you find time to find me
Now I’m carving out a family tree with pretty flowers I can believe in
So I close the book after carefully turning down the leaf
But her red hair is something to be seen
Oh but anyway there’s sure to be some happy times ahead
We lie dreaming in our bed
You can’t legislate for what time will wait for
Ode to myself

Mix up your ideas of love drink it up it’s not enough
