Happy Birthday

Listen to the phone demo @ http://www.soundcloud.com/honnasiri/happy-birthday-1

I'm gonna woo you, till I run out of time
You're, always, forever on my mind
I did choose you, I made you mine
But, somewhere, I'm going to have to draw the line

You're as impossible as they come
Making sure all my plans come undone

Happy Birthday to you
I've got just the trick to break the spell
Happy Birthday to you
Now you don't have to fight me for ages on end
Happy Birthday to you

I have a plan for you, it's all been done
I'm only waiting for you to come cash in on
But let me tell you, only you will pay the price
If you choose to lose out on my advice

The original plan stays put
You're the only thing in it I have to reboot

Happy Birthday to you
Here's my super final last ditch desperate attempt
Happy Birthday to you
Just so you know, I'll never let you go
Happy Birthday to you

The babe that was born that Christmas morn
My very own son, my flesh and blood
He came down to die for your sins, instead
So that you can live, His blood was shed

This is the best that I can do
The rest is completely up to you

Happy Birthday to you
Now that the deal's done, and the battle's won
Happy Birthday to you
Say, "Yes", believe, repent and confess
Happy Birthday to you
A whole new life is awaiting you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Happy Happy Birthday

Don't be stubborn, child 
Now there's no excuse
Don't be stupid, kid
How much more easy can it get?
Don't be hopeless, fool
Hope has come through
New life, eternal, beckons you

Happy Birthday to you
With wide open arms, I will be waiting
Happy Birthday to you
Now, don't you be hesitating 
Happy Birthday to you

Accidental Pebblestones Blues

The clock on the table is
Ticking away
Each second is slowly
Slipping away
I've been staring at the roof for hours
Plain and white
Numb as I can ever be
Through the night

Why is it so hard to
Get up and fight
The crazy feeling
It won't turn out right

I'm scared to the bone
Of the days I'll see
Scared by the chances
Of you and me
Scared for my life
What my days will be
Free indeed seems far too
Perilous for me

Come, oh wind
And whisk me away
Show me where freedom
Has no greater price to pay

Oh, these accidental pebblestones hung around my neck
I have a noose full of them keeping me in check
The trickle stream of your years will always be fine and dandy
Till you realise you've been sold short to a dream that's not so fancy

I wish I could wind it back
Just a little bit
Maybe a day more
How about a week before
Those many years ago don't seem so far away
I want to go back, seize the day and release these chains
So many stakes I don't need
Who are these, what are these people that I please?

Almost Spiritual

I've woken up to a mountain side
Beauty brimming in my mind
Glided on an eagle's wings
As my soul starts to sing
At the sound of your heart beat
I can almost jump and rejoice

Almost spiritual this is
I've found revolution in the air
We're closer to the dream
When you're here with me
The world doesn't have to despair
And the poetry won't stop

One look at the compassion in your eyes
And I look at the world and smile
You and me, we can save the world
Together we can set it free
With the convictions of your heart
You give my world a new jump start

Almost spiritual this is
I can see it in your eyes
To move on up and save the world
Share the dream and make it heard
Hope has finally arrived
And the poetry won't stop

Love is no illusion
Love is no dream
Everything is exactly what it seems
If you can look me in the eye, and tell me it's a lie
I'll stop believing and dreaming and die  
You can't deny...

Almost spiritual this is
Our journey home is done
The world can be the dream we see
If we just listen to the song of our hearts
And the poetry will never stop
