This song is very easy to understand. It’s a guy singing to a girl and telling her how much he loves her.
He sings: You have changed my lifeMore than you'll ever know
And in the chorus he sings: You’re always on my mind
On my mind or on your mind is an idiom. If something is on your mind it means you’re thinking or worrying about it a lot.
In this case, it means that he’s thinking about the girl he loves a lot.
Kia ora in Stick News today thousands of people said they would send pink panties to a group in India on Valentine’s Day.
In January about 40 men from a religious group attacked a group who were in a pub in India. They said the women in the group were violating traditional Indian values.
In response to the incident, four Indian women founded a group on Facebook which attracted more than 25,000 members in a few days. They called their group a consortium of pub-going, loose and forward women and started a campaign encouraging people to send pink underwear to the religious group on Valentine’s Day.
And that was Stick News for Friday 13th of February. Kia ora.

conversations with sarah
I Did they break up?
Dana Is Tiki Taane pretty famous in New Zealand? ティキ・ターネってニュージーランドでかなり有名なの？
Sarah Yeah, he is. 有名だね。
Dana Where’s he from? どこ出身？
Sarah Christchurch I think. I’m pretty sure Salmonella Dub is from Christchurch, so, yeah, I think he is too. クライストチャーチだと思う。 確かサルモネラ・ダブはクライストチャーチからだったと思うから、やっぱり彼もそうだと思うよ。
Dana What’s Salmonella Dub? サルモネラ・ダブって何？
Sarah That’s a band that he used to be part of. ティキ・ターネが以前加わっていたバンド名。
Dana Did they break up? 分かれちゃったの？
Sarah No, they’re still together. He just left to do solo stuff. いや、今もまだ一緒にやってる。 ソロでも活動しているだけ。
