LYRICS
Oh babe oh babe
You’ve been on my mind
Just an old flame old flame
I left you behind
But oh if it were any other day
Maybe you’d want me to stay away
I’m just wonderin’ what you would say
Would be a big mistake

Can I call you on your birthday
Just to make sure that you’re ok
Would you prefer it if i go ghost
And let you go your own way
If I called you on your birthday
To make sure that you’re okay
Got the number to your old phone
But is it workin’

I aint even calling for no reconciliation
I just wanna tap it and see how you’ve been
I’ve waited for it

Adequate amount of time to give us both some space
I think it’s been good for us to stay up out the way
But it

Can’t hurt to check up on an ex, not to flex,
But to put the hurt to rest, put maturity to test

so I’m, calling to say, are you OK, On your special day?

Can I call you on your birthday
Just to make sure that you’re ok
Would you prefer it if i go ghost
And let you go your own way
If i called you on your birthday
To make sure that you’re okay
Got the number to your old phone
But is it workin’ (workin’, workin’)

If I called you on your birthday
Would it be worth it
Should I call you on your birthday
Do you deserve it?

Can I call you on your birthday
Just to make sure that you’re ok
Would you prefer it if i go ghost
And let you go your own way
If I called you on your birthday
To make sure that you’re okay
Got the number to your old phone
But is it workin’ (workin’, workin’)

  1. I would’ve never imagine Syd’s voice sounding like that lol🤨 but I love it😌 they go sooo well together😭 I love always loved Kehlani because she so real I can relate to every song she puts out I really love this one because I’ve felt that before you still love someone and want to talk to them so you use their birthday as a way to get one last conversation in🥺😭💔

  2. Kehlani is the most attractive female artist I’ve ever seen, I wouldn’t look at any female unless it’s her, my mom and sisters that’s it.

  3. This is too amazing 🥰🥰🥰 and I love the concept of this song and including the beautiful vocals; this is a masterpiece from Disclosure. I love the idea of the music video; whoever is the video production team, they did phenomenon job on this including the animation. 💯💯💯💯

  4. that was more Syd than Kehlani but okay. Also first couple of times I listened to this song I completely missed Kehlani. Need another solo project from syd

  5. The spirit of Aaliyah flows in this beautiful song…. Syd and Kehlanis voice together is stunning – my new bday song ❤️💋

  6. Fam… This happened to me. The same exact thing happened. I was considering sending my ex a message and wishing him a happy birthday but I’ve been the one to care what the other does. I got tired and I decided to ghost him. It’s been really rocky. He asked for time and space since December and things haven’t been working because of him. It’s just not okay for me to go back and wish him a happy bday. A year ago we talked for the first time on his bday and since that day I was surprised of how different he was from the others.

    Now I’m just waiting for my birthday to come (October 10) to see if he cares enough to remember. Like this comment if you wanna know the update lol. Just in case anything happens, y’all are with me. 😅❤️

  7. I’m just kinda sad right now cuz I’m literally going through the same things the music talks about. It’s crazy and fucking good

  8. THEY GON GIVE ME THIS RIGHT BEFORE BRANDY AND MONICA VERZUZ………….I’m feeling HELLLLLA 90s with this vibe. GOD, I love Syd!

  9. “Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Would you prefer it if I’d go ghost?
    And let you go your own way
    Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Got the number to your old phone
    But is it working?” 💕

  10. Besides all the turmoil, chaos and days of isolation.. I’ll always be grateful for these COVID Times… I feel musicians were able to sit down and truly go back to their true roots and create amazing music 🙏🏽 🔥

    Hope everyone is staying safe and keeping their spirits ignited 🚀

    God Bless Us all 🙏🏽 🕊

  11. Okay god this isnt an actual sign if I should do it or not tho -_- been contemplating this for days and of course this gets released

  12. DONT DO IT……well unless u still have a thing for them and want them back….if dats not the case DONT DO IT, I repite, DONT DO IT.

  13. does it bother anyone else that in the video kehlani’s birthday is the “11th” but her actually birthday is april 24th ????

  14. Ok now I’m mad at the lyrics seems my girlfriend loves calling her ex’s to tell them happy birthday 😬🙄🤦🏿‍♀️

  15. As soon as I heard this I knew it was a proper producer on it, fantastic production again from disclosure. I did think it might be joker or benga at first before I’d checked. Massive track 👍

  16. Oooh Lord I’ve been in this same situation recently!!!!! Whaaat… His birthday is LITERALLY the day after this video was first posted. In the end l couldn’t do it. I have too much pride. Also, it’s just not worth the trouble. I still think this is so even after encountering this song just now.

  17. Love the song ..hate the video once I saw the animation.. did yall see the signs? The fire heads turning?? Did you notice how the hand waved ..yall ain’t noticed.

  18. My bday is on the 10th and I already have fear that my ex gonna reach me out…and now this song on my recommendations…😭
    Btw love the song

  19. This is one of my favorite collaborations of all time this 2020!!😭😭 Syd, Kehlani, and Disclosure!💖-SmallYouTuber🌺🌴🌊

  20. Lyrics:)

    [ Verse 1: Syd]
    Oh babe, oh babe
    You’ve been on my mind
    Just an old flame, old flame
    I left you behind
    But, oh, if it were any other day
    Maybe you’d want me to stay away
    I’m just wonderin’ what you would say
    Or would it be a big mistake?

    [Chorus: Syd]
    Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Would you prefer it if I’d go ghost?
    And let you go your own way
    Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Got the number to your old phone
    But is it working?

    [Verse 2: Kehlani]
    Yeah
    I ain’t even callin’ for no reconciliation
    I just want to tap in and see how you been
    I’ve waited for an adequate amount of time
    To give us both some space
    I think it’s been good for us to stay up out of the way
    But it can’t hurt to check up on an ex, not to flex
    But to put the hurt to rest, put maturity to the test
    So I’m callin’ to say “Are you okay?” on your special day

    [Chorus: Syd]
    Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Would you prefer it if I’d go ghost?
    And let you go your own way
    Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Got the number to your old phone
    But is it working?

    [Bridge]
    If I called you on your birthday?
    Would it be worth it?
    Should I call you on your birthday?

    [Chorus: Syd]
    Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Would you prefer it if I’d go ghost?
    And let you go your own way
    Can I call you on your birthday?
    Just to make sure that you’re okay
    Got the number to your old phone
    But is it working?

    [Outro]
    But is it working?
    Emotion aside
    Ah
    Am I makin’ your day?

  21. Pretty much if you call your ex you might burn half your face off. Dont call your ex unless you wanna start something you know you want to keep finished!!🏃🏻‍♀️

  22. Incroyable cette collab entre les 3. Innatendu et plus qu’au point ! 👌 Merci de me rappeler Syd que j’ai eu l’audace d’oublier pendant beaucoup trop longtemps ; quelle voix sucrée 😍

  23. Did you saw the dot in the middle of the video that looks like a dirty spot on the monitor, but it’s actually in the video 🙂

  24. This is something different from em. Bet Flume is going to destroy this again with a remix of granular madness!
    Huge respect to Kehlani and Syd too! Phenomenal vocals!

  25. OMG This awesome song and video is straight FIRE I had to call the FIRE department LOL!!!! Do you hear them coming? LOL!! Real music with meaningful lyrics 4SURE!!!

  26. to for his good work he has done in my life. I’m from Asaba Delta State, based in Abuja for now I was once a very poor girl until I came across the number of the great man on YouTube I called him and he told me everything I needed to do before 3days in which I did now all my problems were settled, I now have filling station, cars company, and many more. Call baba today on (+2348064945623 for any of your problems 1(instant money, 2(lotto number 3(for business boom, 4(for love charm. 5(if you want to travel abroad. 6(bring back your ex if you want to love until death/call baba now or whatapp on this same number +2348064945623for the best solution to your problems

  27. That airplane and the black and white tv screen immediately reminded me of her video “Love” with Dean. I’m starting to get the feeling that she likes old airplanes.

  28. When I seen who all was featured in this song I had I stop scrolling through YouTube videos because I just knew this song was going to be something serious . And its funny bc I was def thinking about calling an ex on their birthday lmaoo . This song further shows me that I should not do any such thing lol bad idea .

  29. ¿a alguien más le molesto el punto que esta casi al centro de la imagen, desde el inicio hasta el fin del video? ._______________.

  30. thank you so much for the song and the amazing video
    the lyrics are so relatable! there’s this guy and his birthday’s in october
    i’ll send him the link to the video because i’m too nervous to call him haha

  31. No hate to Kehlani but this song would of been better with just SYD. Just my opinion cuz syd voice matches the song better with the Aaliyah vibes going on. Still love it tho lol

  32. kehlani’s melodies are UNMATCHED, she’s so dynamic and creative and the melodies are just pretty! syd killed it as always 🔥

  33. 🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️🥰❣️🥰🥰🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰🥰🥰❣️🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰❣️🥰❣️❣️❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️❣️🥰❣️🥰🥰❣️❣️❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❣️🥰❤️

  34. I think everyone has had that moment where they hit up an old flame and say “Happy Birthday” in some misguided hope that maybe things will go back to normal or that love can be re-kindled in a few words but you know the love is dead when you get that one word response/ just a “Thank you” and nothing more. Puts that nail in the coffin that its over.
