I got my 5sos tattoo yesterday and I’m honestly so happy with it.
The reason I chose Never be is because in 2012 I lost my best friend after a drunk driver ran him and his brother off the road and for a long time I felt like I couldn’t get through it and I was stuck in this bad place and I was starting to worry the people around me. And when this song was released it was like I finally made a connection, Nick was one of the most kind hearted and amazing people you would ever meet, he was fun, loud and a little too cocky at times but he lived his life so fully and wholeheartedly that it still breaks my heart to know he barely made it to 18. It was like through this song nick was reminding me to always seize the day and stay positive, it’s my connection to who he was as a person. Life is hard on the best of days, but you should always remember that it can only get better.
We’ll never be as young as we are right now, so grab your life by the steering wheel and do what makes you happy regardless of how other people perceive it. Don’t let your colours fade to grey. And thank you 5sos for writing a song that pulled me out of one the roughest patches of my life.
