   pretty busy. I haven’t had much time to taste the food.
C: I know what you mean. I can’t believe that all of us are finally graduating. Do you have any plans for
   the future?

            Appreciation: Pretty Boy
   I lie awake at night
    See things in black and white
    I've only got you inside my mind
    You know you have made me blind

    I lie awake and pray
    That you will look my way
    I have all this longing in my heart
    I knew it right from the start

    Oh my pretty pretty boy I love you
    Like I never ever loved no one before you
    Pretty pretty boy of mine                   You stay a little while
    Just tell me you love me too                And touch me with your smile
    Oh my pretty pretty boy                     And what can I say to make you mine
    I need you                                  To reach out for you in time
    Oh my pretty pretty boy I do
    Let me inside                               Oh my pretty pretty boy I love you
    Make me stay right beside you               Like I never ever loved no one before you
                                                Pretty pretty boy of mine
    I used to write your name                   Just tell me you love me too
   And put it in a frame                       ….
    And sometime I think I hear you call        Oh pretty boy
    Right from my bedroom wall                  Say you love me too
