In the middle of stressful exams, Melodi’s parents give her a surprise.

Senior year
So stressful and tiring
Had to pass the exams
I look lost
My eyes are closing
Head is going down fast
In the middle of the struggle
My parents have a surprise
My 18th birthday is coming soon
They say, Let’s go to Germany
My 18th birthday is coming soon
We are on our way

I was listening
To a rock band
When we came to Berlin
There was a car
In front of the bar
It was the group I loved
My dad ran over to the car
And waved to the band
My dad ran over and kindly asked
If we could take a photograph
Happy birthday to me
With my favorite band
In the concert they sang
Happy birthday to me
They gave me a record
They signed it with their names
To see them, to talk with them
In my life, in my life
One of my best moments
