Birthday Song
by Don McLean



I I could say the things I feel
It wouldn't be the same
Some things are not spoken of
Some things have no name

And though the words come hard to me
I'd say them just for you
For this is something rare for me
This feeling is so new.

You see, I love the way you love me
Love the way you smile at me
I love the way we live this life we're in...

Long ago I heard the song that lovers sing to me
Through the days with each new phrase
I hum that melody
All along I love the song
But I never learned it through
Ah, but since the day you came along
I saved it just for you

You see, I love the way you love me
Love the way you smile at me
I love the way we live this life we're in...

I don't believe in magic, but I do believe in you
And when you say you believe in me
There's so much magic I can do

Now you see me, now you don't
Watch me dive below deep down in your love lake
Where the sweet fish come and go
And I might sink and I might drown
But death don't mean a thing
Coz life continous right or wrong
When I play this birthday song I learned from you . . .
And you can't even sing.
