You Were Good In Your Time

Album: Years of Refusal (2009)
  • Your voice it might say "no"
    But the heart has a will of its own
    Your voice it might say "no"
    But the heart has a heart of its 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 of 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 of 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? Writer/s: ALAIN GORDON WHYTE, STEVEN MORRISSEY, STEVEN PATRICK MORRISSEY
