You were like poison in my blood
But I told myself it was love
I was addicted to the make believe
So I fought the tears and hid the misery
It was like living with a ghost
You were there, but you were bringing me down, bringing me down
I gave you my heart
But I didn’t love myself, I let myself drown and I didn’t make a sound, I didn't make a sound, I didn't make a sound
Happy Birthday to me
I had to let you go to set myself free
Happy Birthday to me
Now I know what I want is not what I need
I ignored your lies and deceitful games
Cause what I didn’t know couldn’t hurt me
And your lurking presence by my side
Made me feel more alone than alive
It was like living with a ghost
You were there, but you were bringing me down, bringing me down
I gave you my heart
But I didn’t love myself, I let myself drown and I didn’t make a sound, I didn't make a sound, I didn't make a sound
Happy Birthday to me
I had to let you go to set myself free
Happy Birthday to me
Now I know what I want is not what I need
It was like living with a ghost
You were there, but you were bringing me down, bringing me down
I gave you my heart
But I didn’t love myself, I let myself drown and I didn’t make a sound, I didn't make a sound, I didn't make a sound
