Ain't nobody here but me, my angels, and my guitar, singin'
I'm havin' a private party
Celebrating the woman I've become, yeah
I tried to call my mother, but
I called my boyfriend, and he said
I hung up the phone, I felt so alone
That's when I realized that I

Look at myself in the mirror
We're gonna heal the disconnection
But this is where it's gonna end
And I'm gonna celebrate it
All my life (all my life)
Somebody else (else)
But I had to learn the hard way (oh)
This is not ego or vanity (oh)

That's what I've come to realize
The Sunday mornings of life
Or out into the universe
Or I can cry away the hurt
Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday
Happy birthday to me
