Happy Birthday Rob!

The long and winding road that leads to your door will never disappear. 
I've seen that road before, it always leads me here, lead me to your door. 
The wild and windy nights that the rain washed away, has left me full of tears, crying for the day. 
Why leave me standing here? Let me know the way! Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried.Many ways you will never know the many ways I've tried and it still may lead me back to the long and winding road you left me standing here a long time ago. 
Don't leave me waiting here. Lead me to your door! 
But it still may lead me back to the long and winding road 
you left me standing her a long time ago. 
don't keep me waiting here. lead me to your door.
