Lyrics

The eyes of the world see what they want to see
People always boil things down to nothing
They'll see your love as worthless and wrong
The eyes of the world leave you with nothing

It's your birthday baby
Here's a gift you should take it
It's your birthday baby
Here's a gift you should unwrap it
It's your birthday baby
Here's some luck you should grab it
It's your birthday baby
Here's a smile you should unwrap it

There's still a few drinks between you and closing time
If you break her heart you'll break your own
Are you afraid that all her roads led right you
Are you afraid that all your roads led right to her

It's your birthday baby
Here's a gift you should take it
It's your birthday baby
Here's a gift you should unwrap it
It's your birthday baby
Here's some luck you should grab it
It's your birthday baby
Here's a smile you should unwrap it

No matter how long you stay with her
You know she loves you
You could make her pain count for something
Even though she hasn't been a girl for very long
Her heart is beautiful, beautiful and strong

It's your birthday baby
Here's a gift you should take it
It's your birthday baby
Here's a gift you should unwrap it
It's your birthday baby
Here's some luck you should grab it
It's your birthday baby
Here's a smile you should unwrap it
