Track Name: Hello (Remix)
[Verse 1 - Quentino]
Hello, from the other side, as it shouldn't be
We should be able to stand together, on the same side
Ride or die: that was the commitment
Over eight years of hard work and it all felt like nothing
I try to turn it into something
But you knocked it down
Which brought frowns to my face
Tears down my eyes
You wouldn't even bother to catch them; you just let them fall
The pain grows deep into one another's hearts
What happened to the very art
Of love that we used to see
But now I see
There was nothing but darkness
Which makes it real scary to feel anything
Seems like the love is lost and it can never be found
From the very rounds
Of the gunshot that will pierce through everyone's heart
It's heartbreaking
And the pain keeps on growing
And it evolves
But I say
That'll it'll be okay
Because we will stick together through these hard days
Hold my hand
Look me in my eyes
And listen as I say, I apologize

[Hook - Quentino]
Hello, from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call, you never seem to be home
Hello, from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter: it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

[Verse 2 - Quentino]
It'll never be the same
The tsunam's so big
Causing waves of destruction
Coming from our people
Coming from our egos
Destroying our love
Destroying our character
And I don't even see no change at all
All I see is the pain that causes us to fall
Our relationship drowning, into the abyss
I just wish that I would've got that very last kiss
Just to give me strength to go further
Just to keep us both afloat
I never wanted to drown in sadness
Or have our characters controlled by madness
Causing a battlefront with no winners
Only losers; this a battle
And I'm being forced to give up

[Hook - Quentino]
Hello, from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call, you never seem to be home
Hello, from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter: it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

[Bridge - Quentino]
When will the heartless angle die in me?
When will it die inside of me?

[Hook - Quentino]
Hello, from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call, you never seem to be home
Hello, from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter: it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore
