退后

You know, i normally don’t listen to Jay Chou, and i honestly don’t like his mumblings and his rap and his floppy hair, even though i will be angering many people by saying that. But i heard this song on Youtube, and i can’t resist putting the lyrics up because it’s really nice 🙂

天空灰得像哭过
离开你以后
并没有更自由
酸酸的空气
嗅出我们的距离
一幕锥心的结局
像呼吸般无法停息
抽屉泛黄的日记
榨干了回忆
那笑容是夏季
你我的过去
被顺时针地忘记
缺氧过后的爱情
粗心的眼泪是多余
我知道你我都没有错
只是忘了怎么退后
信誓旦旦给了承诺
却被时间扑了空
我知道我们都没有错
只是放手会比较好过
最美的爱情
回忆里待续

Update: It’s pouring now and i just got back from a run in the torrential rain.  Ironic that i blogged about the song  just before i left for the run, and perhaps a more sane me would have backed out.  It appears that i’ve also forgotten how to do that ^^ but it was a great run and a great talk with God on the way, and a great deal of thinking in the run, and a great reminder of how fun it is to run in the rain ^^

Perhaps it’s true – i’ve long forgotten how to back off, and i’d much rather meet anything that comes to me head-on.  I’d admit that at times it’s not wise, but i’d still do it firstly because it’s instinctual and secondly because most of the time i feel it’s necessary.  Pulling out/backing off is not something i’m used to, unless proven wrong, but i haven’t come across that situation because the main reason why i don’t back off is because i know for a fact that i’m holding the right ground.  If i wasn’t 100% sure i’d leave room for debate.

In other realms of my world, i feel myself getting emo again – it’s been a long time since the last shaking of confidence and self-doubt.  I’m not even talking about a complete shattering, just a slight quavering.  Still, i guess i am who i am and if it can’t be accepted as such then i’d rather be who i am, even at a cost.  But i’ve been happy and i hope it stays this way.

    hey. chanced upon your blog. i seldom listen to jay chou too, but can’t deny that some of his songs are really well-written. you should check out the song 菊花台. if you find it familiar, it’s from the movie curse of the golden flower.

    cheers 🙂
