Maisie Peters - Birthday

[Verse 1]
You would always show up late
A deck of excuses in your hands
I would be the first to claim I didn't mind
I understand
I put all my songs into a tape
All my words you held inside your hand
And I don't think you ever even listened to them once
I understand

[Pre-Chorus]
Waiting around, still halfway hopeful that you'll show
You said you'd call, of course you won't, I should've known
[Chorus]
You're not here again, I'm not surprised
I hate how long it took to realize
You don't remember or you just don't care
Today's my birthday
And you're still not there
You're still not there

[Verse 2]
Sat cross-legged by the phone
It's 2 AM, the candles are burned out
And I could pretend that it's okay
I understand, but I don't

[Pre-Chorus]
Waited around, I should've known, you wouldn't show
And I'm just a fool who spent her birthday all alone

[Chorus]
You're not here again, I'm not surprised
I hate how long it took to realize
You don't remember or you just don't care
Today's my birthday
And you're still not there
You're still not there

I never asked for anything more than one happy birthday
I never asked for anything more than happy birthday

[Chorus]
You're not here again, I'm not surprised
I hate how long it took to realize
That you don't remember, do you?
Or you don't care
Today's my birthday
And you're still not there
You're still not there

[Outro]
You're still not there
You're still not there
