"Today"

© 2000 by Andersen Silva

Thanks for making me smile,
     And thanks for being my friend.
You've been there all the while,
     I hope you're there 'til the end.

If it weren't for you,
     I'd be a lesser man.
I hope you know what you mean to me
     And so I say, 'cos I can:

CHORUS:
Treat every day like a birthday,
     Not necessarily yours!
When you open your heart to friends
     Your heart suddenly soars.


We may not always agree,
     We sometimes annoy each other,
But just the same, to me,
     You're my sister or brother.

So I say thanks again,
     For the good times and bad.
I just want you to know
     I appreciate what we've had...

CHORUS

Let us pretend it's my birthday,
     Say that it's your birthday, too, yeah.
Everyone's got a birthday,
     And should have a friend like you!

Happy birthday, my dear friend,
     May today bring you bliss.
I've got some wonderful pals,
     And I'm so thankful for this.

CHORUS:
Treat every day like a birthday,
     Not necessarily yours!
When you open your heart to friends
     Your heart suddenly soars.

I wish you a happy birthday,
     Whether it is or it's not;
I love you and thank you,
     And hope I gave like I got...
