surely change

Well... you didn't wake up this morning
Because you didn't go to bed
You were watching the whites of your eyes
Turn red
The calendar, on your wall, is ticking the days off
The calendar on your wall is ticking
the days off
You've been reading some old letters
You smile and think how much you've changed
All the money in the world
Couldn't bring back those days.
You pull back the curtains, and the sun burns into your eyes,
You watch a plane flying across a clear blue sky.
THIS IS THE DAY -- Your life will surely change.
THIS IS THE DAY -- Your life will surely change.
You could've done anything -- if you'd wanted
And all your friends and family think that you're lucky.
But the side of you they'll never see
Is when you're left alone with the memories
That hold your life together like
Glue -the the


"Is it a wedding or what?" Spencer's smile was contagious. Lucy looked around at everyone who'd came to this little party provided by Keith and Benny. There were a few faces she hadn't expected, like Casey and Nina. But there were folks from the comic book place and even some friends from school. It was a sweet occasion. Even Gage was holding steady in his wheel chair.

"Well, yeah." Todd's smile was genuine and it was a nice feeling where one looked forward and not in the opposite direction. "Of course, everyone here has to visit my shop. At least for a haircut. Who knows, we might give you something special."

Lucy turned to all the presents taking up the entire sofa.

"But if we are going to do this properly," Lucy looked around as if she'd have to choose someone. "I'm wanting Keith to marry us."

"Why him?" Benny looked hurt as if he should be the one.

"Because he's the smartest, and most educated of any of. He's a professor of something, isn't he?" Lucy remembered.

"Well, then," Keith sighed with his beer still in hand. "I have been ordained in these matters." He pushed through those still grabbing at Benny famous egg rolls. "Lets do it."

Lucy thought she might be dreaming. Spencer took the baby from her as if this was real. "We're really doing this?" Todd took her hand.

"We've made it this far." He reminded her they did have have a marriage license.  Lucy nodded. No voices guiding her elsewhere. This was the day.
