Can I call it your birthday

can i still call it your birthday
if it’s the day you chose to die
I can’t guess what you were thinking
I can’t begin to even try

I refuse to ask the question
You know, tell me why
can i still call it your birthday
If it’s the day you chose to die

It only took a second
to tear my world apart
just the time to pull a trigger
put a hole into my heart

a voice i can’t remember
a face from long ago
the person lying dead there
is not the one i know

The choice of what to pick up
The gun or man, the phone
Is one you never thought of
Now, you’ve left us all alone

Each year upon your birthday
We will toast your name and cry
Can I still call it your birthday
If it’s the day you chose to die
