It’s not everyday that I listened to Bruno Mars. His songs are so sentimental, but today, when the sun comes out from his hiding after 3 days of gloom, I blasted my earphones with his mawkish songs . And while typing this, I have COUNT ON ME as my background music.

COUNT ON ME LYRICS by: BRUNO MARS

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see,
I’ll be the light to guide you

Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like 1 2 3
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2
And you’ll be there
Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Wooooh, Wooooh
That’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah
You can count on me cause I can count on you

Wooooh, Wooooh
yeah Yeah

If you toss and you turn and you just can’t fall asleep
I’ll sing a song
beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Everyday I will
remind you

Ohh
Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like 1 2 3
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2
And you’ll be there
Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Wooooh, Wooooh
Yeah Yeah

You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry
I’ll never let go
Never say goodbye

You can count on me like 1 2 3
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like 4 3 2
And you’ll be there
Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Wooooh, Wooooh
you can count on me cos’ I can count on you

     I knew him not so long ago. But whenever we chat together, I feel free and happy. He has a beautiful mind. He talks nonchalantly, with train of beautiful thoughts and crazy flattery. Flattery be damned; when the exchange comes in class and character, it reads and sounds suave.

     He is a confident man who knows his things and is strong with his words and deeds. Someone, who, hopefully doesn’t only impress you with honeys, butterflies and tuxedo but shows around with a battered calloused hand and sweat-worn shirt from a day’s hard work. It’s exciting to exchange good conversation with a man who is bold enough to undress his conscience from the start. Someone who is clear and straight forward. Someone who challenges your thoughts and ignores your looks. Someone who dares you to shake your walls and removes your inhibitions. Someone who is unpredictable. Someone who is tougher than you are, who loves what he does and is not bothered by the norms of the crowd. Someone who carelessly express his thoughts with firmness. Who will not cower from inconsistencies and will admit his misgivings.

     You think it’s a love story? Nah, chip that idea off your shoulders. He is “the best” as a good friend. Chinggu-ya! How I was able to open my heart without discomfort was refreshing. I can talk to him about anything, nasty or otherwise and he will not judge me. So unlike me who was judging and studying him for the longest time.

     Whenever the sun rises, I remember him with fondness. He brings out the positive vibe in me. I can count on him like 1,2, 3 and he will be there to guide me.
