“private party”

[chorus]
i’m having a private party
ain’t no body here but me, my angels, and my guitar singin’ baby look how far we’ve come here
i’m havin’ a private party
learning how to love me
celebrating the woman i’ve become, yeah

i tried to call my mother, but
she didn’t get where i was going
i called my boyfriend and he said
call me back a little later baby
i hung up the phone, i felt so alone
started to feel a little pity
that’s when i realized that i
gotta find the joy inside of me

[chorus]

i’m gonna take off all my clothes
look at myself in the mirror
we’re gonna have a conversation
we’re gonna heal the disconnection
i don’t remember when it started
but this is where it’s gonna end
my body is beautiful and sacred
and i’m gonna celebrate it

[chorus]

all my life (all my life)
i’ve been looking for (i’ve been looking for)
somebody else (else)
to make me whole (ooo)
but i had to learn the hard way (ooo)
true love began with me (ooo)
this is not ego or vanity (ooo)
i’m just celebrating me

[chorus]

sometimes i’m alone but never lonely
that’s what i’ve come to realize
i’ve learned to love the quiet moments
the sunday mornings of life
where i can reach deep down inside
or out into the universe
i can laugh until i cry
or i can cry away the hurt

[chorus]

happy birthday to me
happy birthday to me
happy birthday
happy birthday to me
happy birthday to me
happy birthday

[chorus 2x]
