  • 20. yaş gününde robert'ın simon için çaldığı, seventeen seconds'dan three üzerine yazılmış bir the cure laneti..bir doğum gününde dilenebilecek en vurucu şeyi dilemiş robert: "i wish i was an other"...

    simon is twenty in half an hour, so this is for him.

    those down days
    when you felt so young
    and everything seemed

    you saw the people
    around you
    getting old

    you wake up
    the teenage yearn is
    gone for you

    it happens to others
    it happens all the time
    happy birthday to you
    happy birthday to you
    happy birthday to you

    the candles on the cake
    waiting to be blown
    wish i was
    an other

  • bu adda bir parça yapmaya belki de en çok hakkı olan grup the birthday party'nin '79 sonunda konserlerinde çalmaya başladıkları, bir doğumgünü nesnesi(!)
  • sufjan stevens'in da bu isimde cok tatli bir parcasi var. sozleri gercekten cok guzel..

    like the lantern on a tree
    your burden bright as weary be.
    periwig on parakeet,
    you're god's great paramour and sweet.

    i'm happy, i'm happy
    your birthday brings a pardoning.
    i'm happy, i'm happy
    you're like a bird that will not be.

    yours will number, yours will be
    a paragon a paraclete.
    keep your bed warm, keep your humor,
    keep your proverbs short and sweet.

    i'm sorry, i'm sorry
    that life is anxious, life is mean.
    i'm sorry, i'm sorry
    a pair of shoes is what you need.

    i'm happy, i'm happy
    your birthday brings a pardoning.
    i'm happy, i'm happy
    you're like a bird that will not be.

    please accept my apologies, wonder what would have been
    would you've been a little angel or an angel of sin?
    tom-boy running around, hanging with all the guys.
    or a little tough boy with beautiful brown eyes?
    i payed for the murder before they determined the sex
    choosing our life over your life meant your death
    and you never got'a chance to even open your eyes
    sometimes i wonder as a foetus if you faught for your life?
    would you have been a little genius in love with math?
    would you have played in your school clothes and made me mad?
    would you have been a little rapper like your papa da piper?
    would you have made me quit smokin' by finding one of my lighters?
    i wonder about your skintone and shape of your nose?
    and the way you would have laughed and talked fast or slow?
    think about it every year, so i picked up a pen
    happy birthday, love you whoever you woulda been
    happy birthday...

    what i thought was a dream (make a wish)
    was as real as it seemed (happy birthday)
    what i thought was a dream (make a wish)
    was as real as it seemed

    i made a mistake!

    i've got a millon excuses to why you died
    bet the people got their own reasons for homicide
    who's to say it woulda worked, and who's to say it wouldn't have?
    i was young and strugglin' but old enough to be your dad
    the fear of being my father has never disappeared
    pondering frequently while i'm sippin' on my beer
    my vision of a family was artificial and fake
    so when it came time to create i made a mistake
    now you've got a little brother maybe he's really you?
    maybe you really forgave us knowin' we was confused?
    maybe everytime that he smiles it's you proudly knowin' that your father's doin' the right thing now?
    i never tell a woman what to do with her body
    but if she don't love children then we can't party
    think about it every year, so i picked up a pen
    happy birthday, love you whoever you woulda been
    happy birthday...

    what i thought was a dream (make a wish)
    was as real as it seemed (happy birthday)
    what i thought was a dream (yeah, make a wish)
    was as real as it seemed

    i made a mistake!

    and from the heavens to the womb to the heavens again
    from the endin' to the endin', never got to begin
    maybe one day we could meet face to face?
    in a place without time and space
    happy birthday...

    happy birthday...

    what i thought was a dream (make a wish)
    was as real as it seemed (happy birthday)
    what i thought was a dream (make a wish)
    was as real as it seemed

    i made a mistake...!

  • the innocense misson'ın we walked in song albümünden bir parça. *

    when you wake up sun will shine.
    we will not go under any cloud.
    let balloons go up in town,
    ring out every bell.
    happy birthday, beautiful,
    all the birds of this day
    sing a song, sing a song.

    dream of trains carrying you
    through the state parks with the cherry flowers.
    when you wake up it will be
    the beginning of the world.
    happy birthday, beautiful,
    in the fields of this day
    hear a song, hear a song.

    oh, undeserved sweetness and light,
    stay by my side.
    we will go out in the morning now,
    a crown of maple leaves, a crown of flowers
    circling your sweet head.
    happy birthday, beautiful,
    in the streets of this day
    play a song, play a song.
