Birthday Wishes


Words and Music by Clementine

I call upon the Universe
To never take the shine off common people
Whose eyes are still gleaming with hope

I call upon the President
To limit her ambitions
There are far more greater things in Life than power

I wish for peace and love
A better country
And a happy coexistence
Longevity of the people I love
All these years I think of nothing
No one but myself in birthday wishes
Now I think of you…
Now I think of you…

I pray to you my sweetest Lord
Paint us a portrait of your Love
I sing to you my dearest friends
Never cease believing
Dreams do come true

I wish for peace and love
A better country
And a happy coexistence
Longevity of the people I love
All these years I think of nothing
No one but myself in birthday wishes
Now I think of you…
Now I think of you…

Ooh, grant me these wishes
Ooh, grant me these wishes
Something good ends
Something better will begin
Something good ends
Something better will begin
And in this fog I use my heart as a compass
And in the darkness
My faith is my lamp
And in depression I learn
The real value of Living

    Clemen this is a very beautiful song. nice execution with soft,cozy music but with brutal honesty. i love the song very much, it was truthful really. you deserve winning the JLSWC. i myself is a common song writer, not so good but at least i got a fan,my wife haha. i am also a big fan of the beatles,john lennon in particular, the eraserheads, ely buendia in particular hehe, and of course i am also your fan. i am a friend and a coworker of your cousin jericho castro. i also live in bulacan just near your house. hope we can meet sometime in person. i love your music bro..Mabuhay ka!- tope

    how about the “I pray to you my DEAREST Lord”
    i thinkt i its “I pray to you my SWEETEST Lord” ? im not sure.

    anyways the song has very powerful lyrics. nicely done sir Clementine!

    i love the part where you sing the
    “Something good ends
    Something better will begin
    And in this fog I use my heart as a compass
    And in the darkness
    My faith is my lamp
    And in depression I learn
    The real value of Living”

    I love the last few lines of this song, just splendid! (There’s been a mistake here, though. ‘Hand’ should be ‘heart’, right?)
