Song Lyric Sunday – Birthday

To be completely honest, I’m the type of person that doesn’t really see the point in birthday celebrations. However, it’s an undeniable fact that whenever our birthdays come round, we are one year older. It is proof that we have survived another year.

While I may not be ecstatic about that fact, there are those that might have hoped to survive another day but didn’t.

My choice for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is “Birthday Song” by Sayuri.

For the english lyrics, click here.

Every day, someone is born. At the same time, someone else in the world dies.

A happy birthday for one, might be the death anniversary of another.

There are just that many people in the world that this is not something unfathomable. It’s just something that we don’t think about.

Why?

It’s not something we see.

There’s nothing we can do about it.

Yet, when you think about the fact that you are living despite the fact that others are dying, what do you think and feel? Why are we “chosen” to live but others aren’t?

Honestly, I’m not the type of person to think on such a large scale. I mainly think of myself. Why am I still alive? Is there any real reason for me to be alive?

All I can do is search for the answer for as long as I live.

Perhaps one day, I can truly feel happy to have lived for another year.
