All – Birthday I.O.U. lyrics
I.O.U. so many things
I.O.U. everything
But I can't repay you
And it's too late to save you

There really wasn't a choice
Seventeen was just too young
I couldn't hear your voice
I couldn't feel your living

I.O.U. so many things
I.O.U. everything
But I can't repay you
And it's too late to save you
My son, my mistake
My son, my mistake

I know you could have been a girl baby,
Now you can't be anything
We needed you to prove our love,
We used you, then we killed you

I.O.U. so many things
I.O.U. everything
But I can't repay you
And it's too late to save you
My son, my mistake
My son, my mistake

Right to life? Who decides?
Is there wrong and right?
When mom and dad treated you so bad

We made our own decisions,
No one else's business
We'll learn to live with our mistakes
Live by learning from our mistakes
My mistake

I.O.U. so many things
I.O.U. everything
But I can't repay you
And it's too late to save you
My son, my mistake
My son, (I owe you so many things) my mistake
My son, (I owe you so many things) my mistake
My son (I owe you so many things)
