Birthdays! :)

First of all, I'll write a longer entry later. This is a very quick birthday shot out to two people. First of all, my niece Jovannah is seven years old today. Happy birthday girlie! :)

Secondly, today is Billy Joel's birthday. Yes, I'm a fan-laugh all you want. I've been a fan for many years and will continue to do so. As an annual tradition I'm listening to all of his albumns in chronological order. I'm currently at the end of Turnstiles. Here are they lyrics to the song I'm currently listening to. Happy Birthday Billy! :)

I've loved these Days - Billy Joel

Now we take our time, so nonchalant
And spend our nights so bon vivant
We dress our days in silken robes
The money comes
The money goes
We know it's all a passing phase

We light our lamps for atmosphere
And hang our hopes on chandeliers
We're going wrong, we're gaining weight
We're sleeping long and far too late
And so it's time to change our ways
But I've loved these days

Now as we indulge in things refined
We hide our hearts from harder times
A string of pearls, a foreign car
Oh we can only go so far
On caviar and cabernet

We drown our doubts in dry champagne
And soothe our souls with fine cocaine
I don't know why I even care
We'll get so high and get nowhere
We'll have to change our jaded ways
But I've loved these days

So before we end and then begin
We'll drink a toast to how it's been
A few more hours to be complete
A few more nights on satin sheets
A few more times that I can say
I've loved these days

Until next time...
