Tis’ the season to be reflectin’ man. Yup. Christmas and New Year had always been the time when most people look back and think about the past year or more. I’m no different.

But why is that the case? Oh probably cos we all have time during the Christmas break to take stock of all that’s happened in the year. And after the Christmas holidays, everyone is just counting down to the end of the year and thinking ‘Man! How did the year fly by so quickly?’

And then, it hits us.

‘(insert swear word)! I gotta start planing for the new year man.’

But what do we do? What can we learn from the mistakes of this year so that we can make the most of the new year?

See You Again is by far my favourite song of the year. Because no matter how many times I hear it, it makes me feel sad and hopeful at the same time. And it gets me every time.

I feel sad about all the people I’ve lost. Not just those who have passed on. But also those friends who faded out of my life over the years. I think back to the times when we had so much fun together. Then I snap back to the present and remember that we no longer talk to one another or that we are no longer good friends. Or friends at all.

But the song also makes me hopeful. It’s not all doom and gloom.

My 2015 also brought back some very old friends into my life. Weddings and babies can do that to a person. It’s funny. Just cause you don’t keep in touch for a long period of time, doesn’t mean the connection and friendship is lost forever. Friends, the ones that last a lifetime, they don’t truly ever go away. When life settles down and isn’t so crazy, some friends will find their way back to each other.

Time and place people, time and place. People change. But affection and feelings one has for old friends will never go away. You just gotta rekindle it. Just remember, it takes two to clap.

See You Again Lyrics:

[Charlie Puth]
It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

[Wiz Khalifa]
Damn, who knew?
All the planes we flew
The things we’ve been through
That I’ll be standing right here talking to you
‘Bout another path
I know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn’t last
Had to switch up
Look at things different, see the bigger picture
Those were the days
Hard work forever pays
Now I see you in a better place (see you in a better place)

Uh. How can we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gon’ be with me for the last ride

[Charlie Puth]
It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again (I see you again)
We’ve come a long way (yeah, we came a long way) from where we began (you know what we started)
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again (let me tell you)
When I see you again

Aah oh, aah oh
Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (Yeah)

[Wiz Khalifa]
First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feelin’ strong
And what’s small turn to a friendship
A friendship turn to a bond
And that bond will never be broken
The love will never get lost (and the love will never get lost)
And when brotherhood come first
Then the line will never be crossed
Established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn
And that line is what we reach
So remember me when I’m gone (remember me when I’m gone)

How can we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gon’ be with me for the last ride

[Charlie Puth]
So let the light guide your way, yeah
Hold every memory as you go
And every road you take, will always lead you home, home…

It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Aah oh
Uh
Aah oh
Yeah
Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Ya, ya
When I see you again
Uh
See you again
Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Yeah, yeah, uh-huh
When I see you again

Music Video:

Honestly, from the moment I heard the piano solo at the start of the song, I was hooked. Maybe cause I love piano solos. But for me, the reason why the lyrics of the song and this music video always brings tears to my eyes is because of the context of the song. This song is from the soundtrack of the 7th Fast And Furious film and was written in memory of actor Paul Walker. He died in 2013 before he could finish the film. It was only completed because his brothers stepped in to help finish it.

The poignant video is dedicated to Paul Walker at the end of the film and it unabashedly pays tribute to the fallen actor, friend, and family member of the cast of the Fast And Furious franchise.

Come on! How can this not bring a tear to your eye? I’m a sentimental fool that’s way too sensitive for my own good. So I didn’t just tear, I turned on the water works. Not the wailing type cry, just lots of tears rolling down my face.

Final Thoughts:

Love this song! Enough said.
