[verse]
after school, i shared with you my notes and you made me coffee
like this, we lived, and i think of it fondly and often
the wind carries the scent of peach to my window
did you know the springtime, it smells like you?
it is nice to reminisce on those simple moments today
do you think of me? i hope i bring a smile to your face

[chorus]
that night, when you skinned your knees on the sidewalk
right outside my house, do you remember?
and you hit the ground so softly
i imagine i saw flowers grow around your body
i think i fell in love with you for real that time

[verse]
i heard from a friend you are in college now, doing well i hope
you always liked to bicker with me, is law what you are studying?
i hope i don’t offend you with such a question
sometimes i wonder if i should call, but i think it is sweeter like this, isn’t it?
to save you selfishly like a photograph, tucked into my memory

[chorus]
that night, when you skinned your knees on the sidewalk
right outside my house, do you remember?
and you hit the ground so softly
i imagine i saw flowers grow around your body
i think i fell in love with you for real that time

[bridge]
so i am writing you this song
to say
sleep well, eat well,
take care of yourself, don’t forget to drink water
because i am recalling one last time
gently, gently, and it doesn’t hurt
feathers are fluttering at my feet
the sun is going down now, and it makes me happy to know we are seeing the same sunset
i will miss you, but i know i have to set you free

[chorus]
that night, when you skinned your knees on the sidewalk
right outside my house, do you remember?
and you hit the ground so softly
i imagine i saw flowers grow around your body
i think i fell in love with you for real that time
i don't love this in english, so I'll probably end up translating it to chinese sometime soon
