And YES, you’re an adult when you reach the age of 27, like me. Thanks for all the wishes, especially the ones I love the most. Yeah, you’re included. And this year’s best wish, goes to.. this one. Thanks, Keklin.

I heard that you’re settled down
that you found a girl and you’re married now
I heard that your dreams came true
guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you..

Old friend, why are you so shy?
ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light..

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
but I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
that for me, it isn’t over..

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead..

You know how the time flies
only yesterday was the time of our lives
we were born and raised in a summer haze
bound by the surprise of our glory days..

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
but I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
that for me, it isn’t over yet..

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead..

Nothing compares, no worries or cares
regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made
who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?
