Two dates were never so hard to see together

Than when they were showing what I still can't believe

There was a photo one of the best I've ever seen of you

But beneath was the year of your birth beside a too recent year

It was just three months ago

But to some it was last year

The year of your birth

Beside the year 2005

This cannot be happening

I cannot be seeing what's before me

Your friends are saying it's real

And your family can barely speak

It was just three months ago

But to some it was last year

The year of your birth

Beside the year 2005

I'd never seen that photo before

And now this is how I'll always remember it

All I can guess is your pain was greater

Than what most of us feel now
