Let's start with baby Hunter Hayes. Look at him play that accordion. Look at him sing his little heart out. Look at that mop of blonde hair. Look. At. Him.

Now that we've got your attention, here's grownup (but still boyish) Hunter in the music video for "Storm Warning" in 2011. The single comes from his self-titled debut album, for which he wrote/co-wrote the songs and played all 30+ instruments. We pity whoever has to list down all the talents of this multi-hyphenate.

Another one off his debut album, "Wanted" is one of his most famous singles and one of the crowd's most requested when he's onstage up to this day.

"If you're lookin' to be somebody's 'just friends' / A little laughin', little lovin', never callin' again, that's just fine / If you're gonna be somebody's heartbreak, be mine." Yeah, add "Somebody’s Heartbreak" to your feels playlist rn.

The very first tour that Hunter joined as an opening act was Taylor Swift's. Two years later, she had him as her surprise guest in Nashville and together they sang "I Want Crazy." How's that for full circle?

You might've heard of this one from a commercial or soundtrack. Hunter asked Jason Mraz to team up with him for the easy, breezy, but actually kinda sad "Everybody's Got Somebody But Me."

Hunter took the empowering message of "Invisible," off his second album called Storyline, to the Grammys this year.

Finally, we have his latest single, "Tattoo." Raise your hand if you think his name sounds good next to yours!

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
