Birthday Song

Would'ya believe it?
A whole year has gone by.
Seems like everytime I turn around,
it's your birthday.
I've lost count,
how many is it now?
I don't really care.
All I know is
you've grown on me
for half a decade now,
and there'll be many more.
What can I say?
I don't know.
Naturally, I got you a gift,
but, I wanted to do more.
Sat down weeks ago
to write you some words.
Didn't have any luck.
Sat there and watched
the hands on the clock
go 'round and 'round.
Had you in my head.
You kept me distracted.
Kept me smiling.
Smiling, for you.
Because of you.
Now the time is almost out.
Too little time
to say all I'd like.
I couldn't anyway,
even with all the time in the world.
There's just no way
I could put it into words.
It's a deep rooted feeling
that blossoms all year round.
Blast, no time left,
Happy Birthday - You.
