Facts:
  • This song did not have a title when it was first performed. In concert, JoCo called it "Untitled Song About Marriage" and set lists had it listed as both "40" and "Upon Turning 40." The official name wasn't revealed until the Artificial Heart album was released. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Shed the days like skin
    Pray for evenings in
    Hold their hands in the street when you walk them off to school
    A box too full to shut
    Cardboard paper cut
    Bleeding edge of a picture of your parents when they were cool

    So much to say, I forget to start
    There goes a day, fading as it passes
    Forget the grey, let it fall apart
    It's okay
    I like you in glasses

    Shovels in the sand
    A playdough wedding band
    A drowning princess in a tangle of towels on the floor
    An old familiar ache
    The little pills we take
    The thoughtless kindness of a coffee cup waiting by the door

    So much to say, I forget to start
    There goes a day, fading as it passes
    Forget the grey, let it fall apart
    It's okay

    It's on the board
    Someone's been double-booking
    I've got time
    How is your next week looking?

    House shifts into place
    A little breathing space
    The radiators and the floorboards will argue while we sleep
    There's water in the walls
    The stairs make waterfalls
    Down in the basement the soft sound of a river digging deep

    So much to say, I forget to start
    There goes a day, fading as it passes
    Forget the grey, let it fall apart

    So much to say, I forget to start
    There goes a day, fading as it passes
    Forget the grey, let it fall apart
    It's okay
    I like you in glasses
