Your voice
It might say 'no'
But the heart has a will of it's own
Your voice
It might say 'no'
But the heart has a heart of it's own

It's not your birthday anymore
There's no need to be kind to you
And the will to see you smile and belong
Has now gone
It's not your birthday anymore
Did you really think we meant
All of those syrupy
Sentimental things that we said?

It cannot be given
And so it must be taken
It cannot be given
And so it must be taken

All of the gifts that they gave
Can't compare in any way
To the love I am now
Giving to you
Right here
Right now on the floor
All of the gifts that they gave
Can't compare in any way
To the love I am now
Giving to you
Right here
Right now on the floor

It's not your birthday anymore
There's no need to be kind to you
And the will to see you smile and belong
Has now gone
It's not your birthday anymore
Did you really think we meant
All of those syrupy
Sentimental things that we said
Yesterday?
