lyrics

There's a sadness
On your birthday
When there's nothing
To be happy about

You try to make
Your parents proud
But a bottle of pride
Doesn't always go down

& you're blue
you're blue

there's a gladness
On a wednesday afternoon
when there's nothing new
To confuse or abuse

the blues
the blues
the blues

There's lies you tell to children
As you tuck them into bed
You'll grow up show up know up hope up
To get them to sleep

There's nights you lay up thinking
Will I be happy healthy selfless wealthy?
Before you dream

of the blues
the blues
the blues
the blues
the blues

There's a sadness
On your birthday
When there's nothing
To be happy about

You try to make
Your parents proud
But a bottle of pride
no it won't go down

when you're blue
