Alex's birthday was the same time as Jacquie's but I was heaps lazier with this one, hence the lyrics. I do really love the melodic shape of this one and the jump of an octave, along with the cool chord progression and instrumentation, and the harmonies at the end. I'd like to experiment with making this song a little longer for something else, but until then you can listen to it.


Sometimes life is funny how
It'll throw people your way
And some are just to knock you down
some to pick you up again

And sometimes I'll write music
To help me speak my mind
And too many people are the same
But you're one of a kind

You stuck by me as years went by
And others let me go
Oh Alex, you're a great friend
And I had to let you know

So I wrote this for your birthday
And I've quickly gotta say
I hope that you don't mind it being
Just a few months late
