Some days I feel like I can totally handle it and then some days I feel like I’m walking on a tightrope and I’m losing my balance. Because you’re human and you have good days and bad days and up days and down days and that’s just kinda how it works. That’s why writing songs helps me get through all that.
That sounds really cliché but you’re just important in my life and someday you will be an important part of millions of other people’s lives and when we’re 25 I hope we’re living together as flat mates in a nice apartment in New York and we still tell each other everything and I hope we will both still make each other happy.
I also hope that someday you’ll settle down with a wife as brilliant as Taylor Swift and 2 kids who are cuter than Karen Gillan and we’ll still be in contact and you’ll tell me about how your daughter reminds you of me and I hope that sometimes you’ll look back and wonder how stupid and dumb your life would be if we had never met and I hope that when we meet you will be as happy as I will be and you’ll forgive me for hugging you way too much and crying both when we say hello and when we say goodbye.
And one day when we are 67 we will sit down together and think about all the dumb stuff we have done like how we once followed Taylor Swift around America on her US tour and how you became a great actor and we went to the Oscars together because someday it is going to happen and it will be a brilliant moment and I will be so happy for you because you are such a brilliant attractive person and I’ve never really told you this properly.
So Happy Birthday. Know that if I could fly out to celebrate with you I would. But we’ll meet at some point and we’ll celebrate everything we have ever missed out on with French Fancies, Doctor Who and Taylor Swift CDs. Have a brilliant day my king, and know that you are still the most attractive person I have ever had the pleasure of speaking to.
I write a lot of songs about love and I think that’s because to me love seems like this huge complicated thing. But it seems like every once in a while, two people get it figured out, two people get it right. And so I think the rest of us, we walk around daydreaming about what that might be like. To find that one great love, where all of a sudden everything that seemed to be so complicated, became simple. And everything that used to seem so wrong all of a sudden seemed right because you were with the person who made you feel fearless.
