BURT BACHARACH/ELVIS COSTELLO

Think back now when we were young

There we're always tears at the birthday party

You know how children can be so cruel?

That's how it starts

But what if we never learn how to behave?

I did something and you never forgave me

I never thought that it would be like this

But now I see...


I see you share your cake with him

Unwrapping presents that I should have sent

What can I do?

Must I watch you

Close the door, dim the lights,

blow out the candles?

So happy birthday again


And it's the same every year

Seems that I remember it as something more

But you know how children can grow so strange?

I still adore you

What if we never learn from our mistakes?

But then you'll never know how my heart breaks...

I never thought that it would be like this

But now I see...


I see you share your cake with him

Unwrapping presents that I should have sent

What can I do?

Must I watch you

Close the door, dim the lights,

blow out the candles?

So happy birthday again


One day I now he'll forget

To pay you the compliments you're after

You'll hang your sad aching head

Behind a brittlr smile and a sbrill of laughter

Somehow I couldn't quite summon the nerve

Oh each anniversary


Then do you ever think of me?

Unwrapping presents that I should have sent

What can I do?

Must I watch you

Close the door, dim the lights,

blow out the candles?

So happy birthday again
