I've forgotten how it feels to be feeling absolute
And I wonder if it's real: all I see is black and blue
Are you ever coming back? Or is winter going to stay?
Burning off all of my lies, happy birthday

This is me when I am sad
This is me when I am bored
I'll just drink myself to sleep
I guess this phone just doesn't work
And I never wanted this
But I guess I never knew
Exactly what I wanted from you
Happy birthday

Seems I've ruined everything
And it's not my first time
I have ruined everything
Every time I get it right

Are you ever coming back?
Or is my fear going to stay?
Cockroach crawling up my back
Guess I've made a mistake
And I guess I've made a mistake
I guess I've made a mistake
I guess I'm your big mistake
Your birthday present never came
Happy birthday

    General Commentthe song that grew up to be The Good Life's 'Your Birthday Present'.
    His relationship has ended and it's his fault, one of his crimes being forgetting her birthday. He never realized how much she meant to him until she's gone, and now he misses her.
