    Take one
    Yeah! Pain

    Last time I saw you, I was holding your hand
    And I couldn't wait for you to leave
    I knew right then that it was over and done
    And I couldn't believe that I was free

    Help me now, I'm going down
    And I don't know if I'll be ok
    I'll be around, I'll be in town
    If you need a place to stay

    When the wind blows and there's a chill in the air
    I hope that someone is taking care of you
    I'm alright, yeah, I'm really ok
    Just so you know I'm always there for you

    Help me now, I'm going down
    And I don't know if I'll be ok
    I'll be around, I'll be in town
    If you need a place to stay

    (This is Happy Birthday.....
    Happy Birthday to you, happy Birthday to you,
    Happy Birthday dear Karen, happy Birthday to you.....
    You're no longer only just a teenager, you're a full-grown 20....) Writer/s: AARON FREEMAN, MICHAEL MELCHIONDO

  • Apacheninja01 from Here On EarthChristina from Wolcott, Gene, Wrote Birthday boy on his birthday. I hope this answers your question. Oh, it's about an ex GF it's sequel baby bitch is about the same girl.
  • Christina from Wolcott, CtThe title of this song is not part of the lyrics. You should put it in the category"Songs With Titles That Are Not Part of the Lyrics". Why was this song called Birthday Boy? Who is the birthday boy?
  • Jennifer from Little Rock, ArI am pretty sure there is also a Pink Floyd/Ummagumma reference on Don't Laugh--I love the end...sounds like "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict"
