I recall you always said you did not like to celebrate yours, Jason, but we will celebrate you.

Night Before Your Birthday--Andrew Bird

On the night before your birthday
I sat down to write this song
But I was, I wasn't sure what to say
Afraid these words'll come out wrong
That you will always be my darlin'
To the end, end of measured time
Like that pair of nestin' starlings
We're growin' more and more entwined

How the hell did you know
When all you know is what you don't know?

Stumble in the wilderness
Birds hopelessly stoned
Instinct finally worked for once
Or was it just, or was it just dumb luck?

And it's not like strikin' lightnin' (not like strikin' lightnin')
That keeps breakin' heaven's vows (breakin' heaven's vows)
Or that slow and vicious tightenin' (slow and vicious tightenin')
That what the heart allows (what the heart allows)
I could count the ways I love you
But I was never one for maths
While the heavens up above you
Keep gettin' filled with sociopaths

Oh, siestas in June
Cat-like repose

Lightnin' in the afternoon
Lizards on the tile
Music from another room
Let's just linger, let's just linger for a while

On the night before your birthday
I sat down to write this song
But I wasn't sure what to say
Afraid these words'll come out wrong

"When Will My Life Begin?" from Tangled
Tomorrow night the lights will appear
Just like they do on my birthday each year
What is it like out there where they glow?
Now that I'm older, mother might just let me go

We will be reunited, maybe on your birthday,
Will be reunited, on the eighth day in month of May.
On the eighth day in month of May...

You might not know the song, but perhaps you've heard of John Lennon?

Nobody loves you when you're old and grey
Nobody needs you when you're upside down
Everybody's hollerin' 'bout their own birthday
Everybody loves you when you're six foot in the ground

Duran Duran, "Secret Oktober" (1983, 2010 remaster)


Wise on a birthday party, in a world
Full of surprising fireworks and sudden silence. Shh...
Lies on a stranger's bed
The new day breaks like a speeding train
Or an old friend ever expected, but never knocking.
Holding your own in a battered car,
All night parties, cocktail bars
And smile when the butterfly escapes the killing jar.

Sure eyes awake before the dancing is over
Wise or naked in secret Oktober

Freefall on a windy morning shore
Nothing but a fading track of footsteps
To prove that you'd ever been there.
Spoken on a cotton cloud like the sound of gunshot
Taken by the wind, and lost in distant thunder.
Racing on a shining plain
Tomorrow you'll be content to watch as the lightning plays along the wires, and you'll wonder...

Sure eyes awake before the dancing is over
Wise or naked in secret Oktober

Sure eyes awake before the dancing is over
Wise or naked in secret Oktober
