Birthday Star

Birthday Star

A nostalgic, bittersweet post/soft rock piece. It creates a feeling of longing and wonder. The synthesizer almost sounds like a hazy memory, giving this track a sense of suspended time.

There is a sense of irony because the object of love is both close and far. It’s an example of how we can be in love but drift apart by our choices and circumstances. So we are close physically but still far away emotionally.

There is a version with lyrics and a version that is instrumental. Both versions are 4:31 in length.

Lyrics:

It’s your birthday today

The sun is shining

The clouds roll away

If I ever hurt you I’m sorry

Because today’s a brand new day

You’re like a shooting star a trillion miles away

Brighter than the sun in our sky

If a thousand years pass away

If the earth melts away

I’ll still be right here, right by your side

Every year, every hour

If I ever hurt you I’m sorry

Because today’s a brand new day

You’re like a shooting star a million miles away

And brighter than the sun

I need to get to you

But you’re so far away

I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry

Shooting star

I’m sorry I’m sorry

My shooting star
