lyrics

Turn on the light,
Pretend what happened didn't happen.
Is that how these things go?

Aren't we a sight?
We'll laugh about this in the morning,
But just so you know-
The bottles on the table spill

A monument, erected
For every dent connected
In the name of Saint Saturday Night.
You can call it half-expected,
Tomorrow we'll regret it,
But now everything is alright.
And between you and me, happy anniversary.

Nothing is wrong,
Though we don't know if we're just joking,
So pull me in close.

Everyone's gone-
They're either dead or outside smoking,
So only we know.

I've escaped
The songs I made
About you, dear,
Our time is here.

The bottles on the table spill
A monument, erected
For every dent connected
In the name of Saint Saturday Night.
You can call it half expected,
Tomorrow we'll regret it,
But now everything is alright.
And between you and me, happy anniversary.

You were so close that I could taste you
And bring myself to face you,
We're standing with no one to thank,
So shatter expectations
And join the celebration
Created by all that we drank.

We've been broken up by distance,
But each month makes a difference
As quickly we've counted to twelve-
Now, you're the one who said it
And I don't want to forget it
So let's take a step back from ourselves,
And between you and me, happy anniversary.
