Happy birthday babe

You are sitting in your room. A‘
All your friends sit around you
Little gifts, socks and perfume
A CD, it’s hot, it’s new!
Look another pretty thing
Being pleased and thinking „wow!“
And everyone is laughing
Babe you should be happy now

Happy birthday babe. B
You own the world, it’s your day
Listen to what all there got to say
Happy birthday babe

Standing still near the front door. A+
All your guests are leaving now
Lights go down, it’s almost four
And silence covers the row
A great party full of fun
Take a seat and look around
Good wishes from everyone
Good wishes are left abound

Happy birthday babe. B
You own the world, it’s your day
Listen to what all there got to say
Happy birthday babe

Just another year is gone by. C
But what has changed at all?
Just another year is gone by
And summer is still followed by the fall
Just another year is gone by
But what has changed at all?
Just another year is gone by
And summer is still followed by the fall

A great party full of fun A*
Take a seat and look around
Good wishes from everyone
Good wishes are left abound

It feels like there is a hint of sadness running through this. Lines like:
Babe you should be happy now (but aren't?)

Just another year is gone by.
But what has changed at all?

But there's no explanation for that, and maybe I am misreading it.

It feels like it was written as a gift to someone on their birthday.

Hey owen,
You are absolutely right. There is no direct explanation and it is planned to reach only through that little piece of sadness within.
Yes it is written for someone’s birthday…in fact I wrote it for myself on my own birthday…to express that even with all the noise around, the ppl sitting around me… something inside of me felt unhappy…and I dunno how to pinpoint it myself, but I needed to write it the way I felt it. After all…what’s left ? Good wishes…yeah that’s all.

Then well written! It's expressing exactly what you wanted it to!

Ty. Don’t know if it’s understandable but the question I got writing this was…ist this it? Isn’t there something ‚more‘? Just getting a pair of new Sox and good wishes?!
