Jesus came to my birthday party
When I was seventeen
I thought it was a dream
But I know I seen him standing there
With his long hair
I know I seen him there

That was a long time ago
And I haven’t seen him in a while
Now I’m down in the city
And I think I seen him in the eyes
Of the strangers that pass
In the eyes of the poor

Jesus came to my birthday party
When I was seventeen
It was a long time ago

Jesus came to my birthday party
When I was seventeen
It was a long time ago

Jesus came to my birthday party
I thought it was a dream
But I know I seen him there

Jesus came to my birthday party
A long time ago

    General CommentFrom an interview in Drum Media:

    On people's surprise at lead single Jesus Came to My Birthday Part having overt Christian overtones:
    'We don't really care- I mean that's a pretty silly song. I think probably one of the best things about producing music is that people can think what they want about it- they can make good interpretations and they can make bad interpretations- so it doesn't really matter to me. I guess that's a part of our lives, and when you're writing songs it sometimes just comes out in one way or another. As far as I'm concerned it's not that big a deal.'
