Kate's Birthday Song

Kate has a birthday tradition with me; each and every birthday she writes me an amazing poem. So I thought that this year I would try to do the same, but instead of a poem I wanted to rewrite a song. I'm not nearly as talented as she is and this took me all of last night and today to come up with this. Not sure why this was so hard to do... but I did it!

I know that this is three days late; but better late than never, right? The Balla family is celebrating her birthday tonight so... yea this counts! The song I rewrote was Bubbly, by Colbie Caillat. I know what our husbands think about this song, but I thought I would take a little stab at it.

Happy Birthday, Kate! I love you!

I'm so thankful you're my sister now
You're 24, I'll make a cake, let celebrate now
Where would I be without your bubbly face
You're someone I can never dare replace

Love starts and it grows
Getting old really blows
But where ever we go, I always know
that you'll make me smile
Closest friends for a while now
I'll treasure our time
where ever we go

You walked with me, through all the hurt and pain
Stayed by my side, never broke the chain
Your strength and love is what got me through
My dear sister it's because of you

Love starts and it grows
Some might come and might go
but whenever I'm low, I always know
that you'll make me smile
Make life more worthwhile now
You're there by my side
where ever I go

da da da da da da da da bu dum da dum da dum da da dum ...mmmmmm

Remember all things we use to do
Like, driving around till my engine blew
Your friendship is a gift and means the world to me
Such amazing history, wouldn't you agree

Our friendship...
starts in my soul
Giving God all control
When your by my side
I never hide
Cause you make me see
How a good sister should be
Holdin our hearts, where ever we go.

Where ever, where ever, where ever we go
Where ever, where ever, where ever we go...
