Aah... here's the time, another year has passed...
No use wondering "Why couldn't it last?"...
It's a new lease.. another chance to try
And get better... not to cry

365 days... large to look at.. large to hear..
But, yet... before you know it... gone is a year...
Ah ha... well well... it's the big seventeen..
The penultimate of a grown adult... and a teen..

The time has come... for us to make...
Decisions... that make or break...
The future of our adulthood... and the fun of our teenage...
The time... we break our shell... and leave our cage..

The time... we get that much closer to being called grown ups...
And if we're not careful... we might end up as screw ups..
Careful... we have to be during these years...
Careful... of external factors and pressure from peers...

Not that all our friends lead us the wrong way...
It's the kind of company we choose, we can get good or go the bad way..
Either way.. is our choice...
We want what we want... let heard be our voice...

May... let all good be bestowed on you...
And may the flame of the sorrow harden you...
May you find more friends... and the love of your life...
Remember... you'll have to face everything... the scent of the rose and thorns like a knife...

One thing that I've learn t from my life...
If you have to choose between sorrow and the knife...
Choose sorrow... 'cause at one point of time... you'll find out...
When life gives you a beating.. you'll be up and standing for another round...
