I recorded this at 4am in the morning of my sister's High School graduation. I haven't had any proper sleep yet, but I figured this would be my sincere (also read: cheap) grad gift for her.
I really thought about the most appropriate "send-off" song to cover for her. I ran through a lot of options in the car ride back home last night, but I just suddenly, fleetingly thought of Landslide and thought it was actually so perfect.
"Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Well I've been afraid of changing cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
And children get older
I'm getting older too"
As a shy and reserved kid, her little world in High School is all she has ever known. Soon, she's going off to UP Diliman to pursue greater heights. College is such a different ballgame that she feels so apprehensive about what's to come. But all I can tell her is this:
College may be the most wonderful four years of your life, if you let it. It's your chance to start over, to discover new places, to experience new things (like riding a jeep lol). It's your chance to build new relationships, to invest in new people, and to find pursuits to fall passionately in love with.
This is you, moving forward. So don't be afraid of change. :)
