lyrics

today’s your birthday
your day to start again
first day on earth day
the past has come to an end

and all that you see is real
and all that you feel, you feel
and all alone you come awake

today’s your birthday
the sun spills across the sky
today’s the first day
you know without asking why

and all that you see is new
and all that you feel is you
and all alone, we come awake

the sky won’t fall
there’s room for us all
the tears the smiles we throw away

look out for the light,
while inside it’s bright
you close your eyes to see

we’re all who we are
inside is a star you grasp
when you stop your reaching

everything’s right
inside with the light that shines
when you stop your preaching

today’s your birthday
when you let yourself out your skin
first day on earth day
the new world comes rushing in

and all that you dream comes true
and all that you seem is you
we’re all alone awake as one

love’s gonna flow
just stop shouting no
and let yourself go slow motion

fear is a pail
your soul is in jail
till you pour it back to the ocean

a moment’s fright
then everything’s right
as you fill the swirling sea

they’ll tell you it’s death
but what you fear the is the breath
that let’s you finally say

today’s my birthday
my day to start again
first day on earth day
the future’s come to an end

and all that you see is new
and all that you feel is you
and all that you dream comes true
and all that you say you do
and all that you fear falls away
and all that you hide falls away
and all that hate falls away
and all that you need falls away
and all that you blame falls away
and all that you shame falls
and all that you love falls away
all that you want falls away
till all that’s left
is today
