Around the beginning of summer 2017, I joined an app called HelloTalk. It’s basically like a language exchange/penpal app. I joined it because I wanted to make friends, improve my Thai, and learn some more Japanese and Korean. Unfortunately, I was always busy and not very good at staying active on the app. Still, I made some great friends. One of my friends from HelloTalk is Fah. She was going through a heartbreak and I could relate to her. Long story short, I did promise to cover a song for her. I had already been working on it, but my promise to Fah was supposed to push me towards finishing it. Still, I didn’t have much time. I had time to record some short clips here and there throughout the year. However, I didn’t really have the time to record and (crudely) edit a full song. So this song basically took me about a year and a half to finally finish it.
Anyways, the original song is called “เป็นทุกอย่าง” by a band called Room39. “เป็นทุกอย่าง” basically translates to, “To be everything”.
It’s basically a song about being in an unrequited love with someone you’re close to and clearly in love with. However, you know you basically know that you can never be more than friends. In other words, this is a friend zone anthem.
Original Song: Room39 – เป็นทุกอย่าง | Everything
English Lyrics by me~
Fah and I really related to the song. For me it reminded me a situation from the far past. I was that girl who cared too much about a friend who was in love with someone else. Still, I always supported him and cheered him on…even when no one else did. I was always there for him, even when he had his heart broken multiple times. For me, I rather keep my friendship than try to change it. I was honestly grateful for our friendship then. Like in the song, I was always there for him whenever he called or messaged me; No matter what the time was, and no matter how long it would be. I remember getting texts or calls at 3-4am, hearing him cry on, and I would stay on the phone with him until the sun was up. Unfortunately, my story ended on a bitter note. It didn’t matter if I was a friend who was always there for him when he needed it. In the end I basically got cut, while he remains extremely close to that girl who broke his heart (multiple times). I admit I was really hurt, but I’m okay now. Though, I will admit that a part of me remains incredibly bitter about the whole ordeal. I know it doesn’t sound like it…but I’m fine. There were good and bad times. In the end, I learned alot of things from it. It’s just that this will remain as a scar for me; Both the good and the bad.
