I said happy birthday
And I’m so glad you’re here
I hold on to you and never let you go
If you’d let me near

I said happy birthday
I know this must sound weird
I know you were made for me
And that’s why they put you here

So why do you turn my diamonds to ashes
Diamonds to ashes
Diamonds to ashes

I said happy birthday
I know you must be scared
You don’t know me but this burden
I just can’t bear

I said happy birthday
You’re so old(?) I fear
That if I ever get close to you
You might disappear

So why do you turn my diamonds to ashes
Diamonds to ashes
Diamonds to ashes

I said happy birthday
I know that you can’t hear
But don’t try to find me
Because all you’ll find is I’m not there

I said happy birthday
Why the fuck won’t you disappear
I can’t stand to be myself
Not for another year

So why do you turn my diamonds to ashes
Diamonds to ashes
Diamonds to ashes
