    It smells like birthdays in the haze where small breaths blow out candles
    And bated they wait blind to lift the veil, to wail beyond the wall
    Be welcomed one and all
    It's all that they believe

    Till one day they're born(e) away, drafted by the ocean breeze

    When the wind blows I've been known for flying south with floozy birds
    And cowering under canopies while cradle babies fall like rain
    But you try to explain: the bough didn't break, I just made a mistake

    I'm sorry
    Please forgive me
    How could I have known?

    I was away on the waves of war
    But I would have dropped everything
    I would have come up from my submarine
    And thrown my body right between all cannonballs and you
    I would have kept you out of the red
    Or listened to a word you said

    For all the girls who'd always watched the water from the wading pool
    Things all changed that summer
    When swarthy sailors came to slip the salty seas
    They waved from the gate with their periods late

    It smells like birthdays
