Our Anniversary

This song is by Bill Callahan and appears on the album Rough Travel For A Rare Thing (2010).

The crickets are chirping
They stop at my step
I stop my step
And they start up again

It's our anniversary and the bullfrogs
And everything that can sing is singing
Its mating song

The soil is steaming
Grass is swooning
Guns or fireworks are popping
Down in the town
A woman is running
A man jumps up and down

It's our anniversary and you've hidden my keys
This is one anniversary you're spending with me

I slide in the front seat
The drivers side
To hotwire and hightail crosses my mind
But still in the driveway
Fixed like the stars

I flip on the headlights
And go back inside
The climates controlled
While the battery dies

Clipping the wings of your morning light

It's our anniversary
A celebration of
And heres to next year
Maybe you'll join me in my car
We'll drive together
But not too far

We are far from flowers
Cut and dried
So let us thrive let us thrive
Let us thrive
Just like the weeds
We curse sometimes
