Graduation -- NickGr


#1

With great love to the whole class of 11B, all of my teachers and friends.

Genre: alternative

Chorus:
And I just don’t want to leave you all behind
But now we’ll have to see it all unwinds
I wish this would never end so fast
But there’s a new way to get over the past

Verse I:
I never knew you guys will be my family
Now this ends and I hope you won’t forget me
I know you all got my back, I wish the same you tell about me
And I don’t feel like breaking free

Pre-chours:
These have been wonderful days
But now we’ve got to part our ways

And I just don’t want to leave you all behind
But now we’ll have to see it all unwinds
I wish this would never end so fast
But there’s a new way to get over the past

Verse II:
First love. First hate. First friend
Never thought i wont have to pretend
Never thought I won’t wish to let it go
Never thought i’ll regain control
Never thought this will make me stronger
Never throught this would be over

Pre-chours:
These have been wonderful days
But now we’ve got to part our ways

And I just don’t want to leave you all behind
But now we’ll have to see it all unwinds
I wish this would never end so fast
But there’s a new way to get over the past

Verse III:
Felt sad, felt cold, felt pain
But if I could, i would surely go through this again
And so it’s over : the new life begins
I’m happy i had you and can call you friends
I’m happy I could swim to this coast
And i hope none of this gets lost

Pre-chours:
These have been wonderful days
But now we’ve got to part our ways

And I just don’t want to leave you all behind
But now we’ll have to see it all unwinds
I wish this would never end so fast
But there’s a new way to get over the past

What a nice tribute! I can see you used lots of emotion to write this. The hardest part of ending is starting again, but don’t forget starting again means coming across new opportunities!


#3

You should’ve known how much emotions i had… ahhh! lol


#4

That was nice very emotional :grin:


#5

Beautifully written Nick! Don’t be sad about leaving it behind though, you never know what the future holds. Wishing you all the best in the next chapter of your life. I know you will do great things


#6

Awwwwwww :hugs:


#7

sooooo nice just keep them in your memory and leave out all the rest

If I wrote a song about my highschool graduation and leaving, it would probably start with the line “you can fucking rot in hell!” :joy:

Great song, this is the first time I’m hearing of someone that enjoyed high school.


#9

Only last two years actually. At the moment I’ve changed school lol

Please stop spamming you have already been banned 3 times


#12

That was awesome :slightly_smiling_face:


#13

oh @the_termin8r that is funny :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:

I think the sentiment your expressing is very interesting Nick. Nothing beats writing for catharsis though periods of change… do you like having your work critiqued by others? Do you like giving constructive feedback on other peopkes writing too?


#15

Critics always accepted!


#16

Sweeeet, im getting over my anxiety of putting stuff up so id love criticism on mine at some point if your interested. I live for tearing my stuff to shreds to be a better writer

Im having trouble with this line. I suppose it depends on how it us to be sung or read out but i feel like it should say either
*now we’ll have to see how it all unwinds
*now we’ll have to see it all unwind
Or even *now we’ll have to see the way this unwinds


#17

Yeah I think you’re right…
please note English isn’t my native language:)))


#18

Finally read it bro and you really touched my heart with this honest lines of love and friendship, the loss is so real sensable in your lines- but also the joy and the gratitude- the thankfullness and pain - all at once- grats for your graduation- grats for these lines- grats for being you as you are: full of emotions and never to proud to show them… this makes me as your big sis so proud … come over and get a bonecrusher :hugs::hugs::hugs:

Nah i thought it night be your second language as your profile said u from russia…you do very well considering that hey, i would be completely lost trying to rhyme in another language…id probably end up insulting somebody’s grandmother by accident lol

My aunt was from kiev (simular language from what i understand) and she started learning english when she was in her late 20s and i noticed she had trouble with the tenses and that might help you maybe? So being careful with words that mean in the past, present or future.

I never knew you guys will be my family is an example of this where the tenses are mixed up. Knew is a word for the past tense and will is kinda future tense…This explains it very well
I would probably write
I never knew you guys will be my family… into
I never knew you guys would be my family…or
i never knew you guys would become my family
Is this helpful?

I’ve started learning English when I was 11 and tenses was the worst
