"Un ange frappe a ma porte
Est-ce que je le laisse entrer
Ce n'est pas toujours ma faute
Si les choses sont cassées
Le diable frappe a ma porte
Il demande a me parler
Il y a en moi toujours l'autre
Attiré par le danger"

Grew up together.
Just two houses apart.
Played Legos
And traded dinosaurs.
Got knocked down 5 steps by his dog.
Cut his head open in my backyard.
Carpooled to school.
Sang Disney songs on the way there.
Played Kick The Can at block parties,
Had jumping contests in the bouncy tent.
I’m taller than him now.
He’s gonna be taller than me soon
Graduated together once-
And will twice more.
But we’re still
Just good friends.

Well-written! You always have been a good friend-maker.

Nearby and faraway friends are a treasure. I treasure my faraway friends, now back in Japan.
