Morrissey: It's Not Your Birthday Anymore

Your voice it might say 'no'
but the heart has a will of it's own
your voice it might say 'no'
but the heart has a heart of it's own

it's not your birthday anymore
there's no need to be kind to you
and the will to see you smile and belong has now gone

it's not your birthday anymore
did you really think we meant
all those syrupy, sentimental things
that we said?

It cannot be given
and so it must be taken
it cannot be given
and so it must be taken

All the gifts that they gave can't

compare in any way to the love I am
now giving to you right here
right now on the floor

all the gifts that they gave can't

compare in any way to the love I am
now giving to you right here
right now on the floor

it's not your birthday anymore

there's no need to be kind to you
and the will to see you smile and belong has now gone

it's not your birthday anymore

did you really think we meant
all those syrupy, sentimental
things that we said yesterday?

Vix,
You have great taste, but we knew that. Love you. Have a great weekend!

Is he related to Jim Morrison?
(Just kidding.)

Ms. Moon,
Maybe. We both don't like people very much. I am wearing a Morrissey shirt today, and almost no one over here knows who he is. I have two posters of Morrissey in my stairwell. I am a bit obsessed.
