Memorial Day, Bon Iver

I didn’t have a whole lot to start with,

But that never stopped us

A few choice statements on foreign policy, and how to feed pups

That evolved into debates on the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, New York

NY, or Long Island, somewhere under a rainbow

 

That’s how I explain my fear of death to strangers willing to ask

With a thermostat set to 58 fahrenheit and a savings account

I don’t remember the last time I added bacon to breakfast,

 

It’s forever ago, with chimes we hung out front to remind you of home

I remember a time when I didn’t fear dying, and fought for that right

Now I take out the trash the day it’s picked up, as an act of rebellion

I have the world fooled that I’m so like them

But I love my wife, like my father loves his, forever and 

I only ask that people stop counting the days for their own sake
