Don McLean - Birthday song
Tekst en muziek: Don McLean
(1972)






If 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’ll 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 hummed that melody
And all along I loved the song
But I never learned it through
Ahh, but since the day you came along
I’ve 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
’Cause life continues right or wrong
When I play this birthday song
I learned from you
And you can’t even sing
