Sixteen finds me Blowing out candles and making wishes
And all around me
Is everyone but the one I'm wishing for
And he sent me flowers And gift-wrapped excuses From a daddy whose daughter Wants to see him again 
And I know, I know
It's just another birthday
But I guess I thought This would be the one
When he would call me, see me
Hold me and free me
But it's just another birthday

And I'll be fine
I'll be fine
 Nineteen finds me
And I'm wild-eyed and wide open
I gave myself away to love
But backseat promises fade like a mist
I'm screaming at the midnight air Everyone hears me but I don't care
My heart's clenched just like a fist
'Cause, people, I didn't ask for any of this
And I'm not fine
I'm not fine

In the company of strangers In a cold and sterile room
All alone with a child inside me
And I don't know what to do
Jesus, can You hear me
Come and heal my brokenness Put the pieces back together And be a Father to the fatherless 
Twenty-one finds me Blowing out candles and making wishes
And all around me
My barefoot princess twirls and sings It's so amazing Looking back at all God's brought us through You are my happy birthday
And you were born to break the chains 
Now I know, I know
It's not just another birthday
'Cause I'm here, she's here
And look how far we've come Since you've called me, saw me
Held me and freed me Thank you, Lord, for another birthday
And we'll be fine
We'll be fine
