I Didn’t Get You Anything

New Years Day Evening we talked until morning
We met like two cans on a string
That’s when you made me a fine resolution
But I didn’t get you anything

Soon after Valentine’s from LA to Tucson
You gave me your keys in the spring
You gave me some credit and doubt’s costly benefit
But I didn’t get you anything

Sometime next Christmas I knelt on a footbridge
Holding a secondhand ring
You gave me your hand and compared to this dowry
I didn’t get you anything

One New Years Eve we made plans for tomorrow
I may have bought you a drink
You gave me a home, some dogs and a driveway
All the right things I had wrong
You gave me a place for my empties
and a place to belong

Please take my life, wasn’t using it anyway
’cause I didn’t get you anything
