If You Were Born Today (Song For Little Baby Jesus)
12/26/08 at 05:09 PM by Jonathan Bautts
If you were born today
We'd kill you by age eight
Never get the chance to say

Joy to the world
And peace on the earth
Forgive them for they know not what they do

Blessed are the meek
And blessed are the humble
Blessed are the ninety and nine

Deny the flesh
Deny all that's evil
Tonight you'll deny me thrice

If you were born today
We'd kill you by age eight
You'd never have a chance to say

—Low (1999), covered by Jimmy Eat World (2001)

23
10/21/08 at 08:48 PM by Jonathan Bautts
Since my 23rd birthday is today, here's the lyrics to one of my favorite songs of all time. As usual, the amazing Jim Adkins knows how to pretty much sum up my life.

I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I'm still driving away
And I'm sorry every day
I won't always love these selfish things
I won't always live not stopping

It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

Amazing still it seems
I'll be 23
I won't always love what I'll never have
I won't always live in my regrets

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

—Jimm
