Rosemary Avenue

Rosemary Avenue

I should stay out of the attic
There are dragons up here
Some of them I slayed years ago
Some of them I still fear

In a weak moment I resolved
To sit and reminisce
And in a box of old pictures
I charged into the mist

Chorus:
A faded picture of a damsel in distress
On the porch of a house painted blue
In a long calico dress
A picture of me and you
On Rosemary Avenue

On a thousand hot, starry nights
I bested all comers
Endless jousts for your affection
Marked the passing summers

We swore we’d grow old together
Come hell or high water
But what seems so clear at eighteen
Gets cloudy at forty

Chorus:
A faded picture of a damsel in distress
On the porch of a house painted blue
In a long calico dress
A picture of me and you
On Rosemary Avenue

We had no dramatic ending
I can’t even recall
The moment I knew I’d lost you
If I ever knew at all

Bridge:
Some things just slip away
Like a feather in the wind
You can dwell on yesterday
But you can’t go back again

Chorus:
A faded picture of a damsel in distress
On the porch of a house painted blue
In a long calico dress
A picture of me and you
On Rosemary Avenue
