Just Another Birthday
Capo 3 

Intro:
Em C G D x2


Verse 1: 

      C        D
Sixteen finds me
             C                 D
Blowing out candles and making wishes
        G             C
And all around me
       G                    Em
Is everyone but the one I'm wishing for
    C           D
And he sent me flowers
    Em          G
And gift-wrapped excuses
      C           D
From a daddy whose daughter¨
     Em          G
Wants to see him again


Chours 1:
   C        G
And I know, I know
   C             G
It's just another birthday
   C        G
But I guess I thought
D
This would be the one
              C        G
When he would call me, see me
Em          C         D       
Hold me and free me
         C            G          D
But it's just another birthday
           Em      C      G 
And I'll be fine
D        Em      C      G    D
I'll be fine


Verse 2:
      C        D
Nineteen finds me
        C                 D
And I'm wild-eyed and wide open
         G                C
I gave myself away to love
     G                     Em
But backseat promises fade like a mist
     C                        D
I'm screaming at the midnight air
     Em                G
Everyone hears me but I don't care
            C                    D
My heart's clenched just like a fist
               Em                 G
'Cause, people, I didn't ask for any of this


Chours 2:
   C         G
And I know, I know
   C             G
It's just another birthday
   C        G
But I guess I thought
D
This would be the one
              C        G
When he would call me, see me
Em          C         D       
Hold me and free me
         C            G          D
But it's just another birthday
           Em      C      G 
And I'm not fine
D        Em      C      G    D
I'm not fine



C                  
In the company of strangers
D                     C
In a cold and sterile room
Em
All alone with a child inside me
Em
And I don't know what to do
Am
Jesus, can You hear me
C 
Come and heal my brokenness
Am 
Put the pieces back together
          C             G
And be a Father to the fatherless
C
A Father to the fatherless

         C       D
Twenty-one finds me
            C                  D
Blowing out candles and making wishes
         G         D
And all around me
          G                     Em 
My barefoot princess twirls and sings
         C        D
It's so amazing 
         Em                  G 
Looking back at all God's brought us through
       C             D
You are my happy birthday
          Em                    G
And you were born to break the chains

     C       G
Now I know, I know
     C                 G 
It's not just another birthday
       C             G
'Cause I'm here, she's here
    D
And look how far we've come
             C           D
Since you've called me, saw me
Em            C       D
Held me and freed me
            C                G        D
Thank you, Lord, for another birthday
            Em     C    G
And we'll be fine
D        Em     C     G    D
We'll be fine

About the artist behind Just Another Birthday:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
