"Happy Birthday"

    Happy Birthday once again
    Times like these were meant to end

Time passes seems like deja-vu
The long years fade to black and white
Clock keeps on ticking

Yearbook of former days, memory that decays

   Happy Birthday once again
   Times like these were meant to end

Youthful generations long since gone
Days that age could not foresee
Candles still burning

Coming of age, turning the page

   Happy birthday one more time
   Times like these do have to end

Time to realize to fantasize
Watch as memory dissolves
Wheels keep on turning

Passage through the years a decade disappears

   Happy Birthday once again
   Times like these were meant to end
   Happy birthday one more time
   Times like these don’t have to end
