The first time I saw the billboards
I felt excited
I was two hours in America
With my family reunited.

I arrived during the day
I was surrounded by light,
Everything was shining,
I stayed there 'til the night.

I’ve been here for seven months now
I feel like time’s flying
Seems like yesterday
All the clothes I started buying.

Tomorrow is my birthday
I’m going to Times Square
I feel so excited,
Because my family will be there.
