New Jersey walks for Tourette Syndrome at Princeton

I’ve not been back to Princeton in 6 years… Mariel would be 10 this year… All I could think on the miserable drive down there with my father was this song… so… here are the highlights of the day, but… the way I actually was feeling them.

 

Good morning, son. 
I am a bird 
Wearing a brown polyester shirt 
You want a coke? 
Maybe some fries? 
The roast beef combo’s only $9.95

It’s okay, you don’t have to pay 
I’ve got all the change

Everybody knows 
It hurts to grow up 
And everybody does 
It’s so weird to be back here 
Let me tell you what 
The years go on and 
We’re still fighting it, we’re still fighting it 
And you’re so much like me 
I’m sorry

Good morning, son 
In twenty years from now 
Maybe we’ll both sit down and have a few beers 
And I can tell you ’bout today 
And how I picked you up and everything changed

It was pain 
Sunny days and rain 
I knew you’d feel the same things

Everybody knows 
It sucks to grow up 
And everybody does 
It’s so weird to be back here. 
Let me tell you what 
The years go on and 
We’re still fighting it, we’re still fighting it 


You’ll try and try and one day you’ll fly 
Away from me 


Good morning, son 
I am a bird 
It was pain 
Sunny days and rain 
I knew you’d feel the same things 
Everybody knows 
It hurts to grow up 
And everybody does 
It’s so weird to be back here. 


Let me tell you what 


The years go on and 
We’re still fighting it, we’re still fighting it 
Oh, we’re still fighting it, we’re still fighting it 


And you’re so much like me 
I’m sorry
