“No Happy Birthday” by Hayden

“As you go through life, you will bring such light. That’s how I picture it most of the time. That’s how my mind, yeah that’s how my mind, that’s how my mind keeps my heart in line.”

I’ve been waiting, I’ve been thinking
I’ve been wanting to sing you this song
I know you may not understand my thoughts
But you will know where it’s coming from
Grab your guitar or your maracas
Or play with me on your wooden drum
It’s no happy birthday, but it’s my way
Maybe one day you’ll sing along

As you go through life, they may be unkind
And I won’t always be there by your side
And that’s on my mind, that’s on my mind
That’s on my mind almost all of the time

We’re always walking in the morning
And you look up with your beautiful stare
And you start talking, there’s no stopping
You say so much you run out of air
And then we’re running, to tell you mom
And we never make it back to our street
That’s when I wake up, always the same spot
My heart playing a song so sweet

As you go through life you will bring such light
That’s how I picture it most of the time
That’s how my mind, yeah that’s how my mind
That’s how my mind keeps my heart in line
Yeah that’s how my mind, yeah that’s how my mind
That’s how my mind keeps my heart in line

Grab your guitar or your maracas
Or play with me on your wooden drum
It’s no happy birthday, but it’s my way
Maybe one day you’ll sing along
