发如雪

狼牙月 伊人憔悴
我举杯 饮尽了风雪
是谁打翻前世柜
惹尘埃是非
缘字诀 几番轮回
你锁眉 哭红颜唤不回
纵然青史已经成灰
我爱不灭
繁华如三千东流水
我只取一瓢爱了解
只恋你化身的蝶

你发如雪 凄美了离别
我焚香感动了谁
邀明月 让回忆皎洁
爱在月光下完美
你发如雪 纷飞了眼泪
我等待苍老了谁
红尘醉 微醺的岁月
我永无悔 刻永世爱你的碑

你发如雪 凄美了离别 我焚香感动了谁
邀明月 让回忆皎洁 爱在月光下完美
你发如雪 纷飞了眼泪 我等待苍老了谁
红尘醉 微醺的岁月

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.

City sidewalks
Busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing
People passing
Greeting smile after smile
And on every street corner you hear

Silver bells
Silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling
Hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas Day

And if you all haven’t heard the Take 6 version of this song, then you really ought to get their CD and listen to it 😉

One more time

More lyrics that are playing in my mind.

终于明白你以变成回忆
没有言语能够说明当别人问起
谱了一段旋律没有句点
也无法再继续
像埋伏在街头的某种气息
无意间经过把往日笑与泪勾起
忽然心痛的无法再压抑
原来从未忘记
Melody脑海中的旋律转个不停
爱过你 有太多话忘了要告诉你
Melody 无数动人音符在我生命
爱过你 失去你我才知道要珍惜
当时无法为你写的那首歌
都是我永远的遗憾
当爱逝去 如果所有的错重来一次
能否改变结局
终于落下休止符的那首歌
我听着每一个音符流过的回忆
为什么在那么多年以后
还不能说再见
Melody 脑海中的旋律如此熟悉
爱过你 在我心里只能轻轻叹息
Melody 无数动人音符在我生命
爱过你 失去你我才知道要珍惜
Melody oh Melody
我永远不能忘记
你是多么的美丽
让这音乐一直不停响起
Melody oh Melody
我舍不得去忘记
我们快乐的过去
请别让我从这梦境清醒
Melody 脑海中的旋律如此熟悉
爱着你 求你听我唱完这一段旋律
请不要离去
Melody 你是在我脑海不停的旋律
爱过你 我的心里只能无言叹息
Melody 无数动人音符在生命里
爱过你 失去后我才知道要珍惜你

You know, i find it mildly ironic that i’m feeling the most creative and i have the most inspiration for the arts that i pursue when it’s the examination period.  Chonghan says it’s because that’s the period that we’re the most idle, and i have to agree at least in the mental aspect because there’s nothing extra to learn…but doesn’t that also mean that i’m supposed to be studying instead of blogging here on his laptop? hahaha.

In other areas, i finished two out of four concepts sketches and linings on paper for the “Wildkatz” series of characters i just decided to do.  I dunno why four, it just seems like a balanced number, but the last character is baffling me as to what to put him as – i already have an idea of what i want for the third character, and that will come out either over the weekend if i can afford the time, or after the exam when i forcefully squeeze in time inbetween choir camp, Anntic, IHG Handball training in which i hope to prove myself worthy enough to play in the first team, and my own personal pursuits of designing more Tshirts upon requests.  So far none though 🙂

Tomorrow’s the first exam – HR! BAH! Be prepared for a lack of posts here then…but then again, knowing me, i’ll still be updating regardless, seeing as i’m still updating now.

Tomorrow’s also the day i collect my sharkman shirts! YAY!

Talk about mixed feelings. 😀

大风它吹进了我想要安静的地方
白浪偷偷地翻阅了我心中深藏的过往
今天特别长 因为你在远方
忧郁也变得不一样 比天更蓝
大雨它带走了我想要留下的脚印
白云悄悄地遮住了我眼中的明天的憧憬
孤单那么久 因为有个承诺
牵挂也变得不一样 比海更宽
牵挂的是我 明天的梦是否依然有你的天空
牵挂的是你 许多年以后心里是否还有我
也许大风它吹散的大雨它带走的谁也不能再强留
可是岁月的浪花 永远的白云
谁又能没有梦
大雨它带走了我想要留下的脚印
白云悄悄地遮住了我眼中的明天的憧憬
孤单那么久 因为有个承诺
牵挂也变得不一样 比海更宽
牵挂的是我 明天的梦是否依然有你的天空
牵挂的是你 许多年以后心里是否还有我
也许大风它吹散的大雨它带走的谁也不能再强留
可是岁月的浪花 永远的白云
谁又能没有梦
牵挂的是我 明天的梦是否依然有你的天空
牵挂的是你 许多年以后心里是否还有我
也许大风它吹散的大雨它带走的谁也不能再强留
可是岁月的浪花 永远的白云
谁又能没有梦

A song from my past – but it brings back funny memories, and still catches my attention even now 🙂

How deep the Father’s Love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He would give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds with mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon the cross
My guilt upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breathe has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no pow’r, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

At this point of time i’m in the middle of a lab report that’s due for submission tomorrow (it’s almost done though), but my mind has given up on analyzing modal patterns, vibrations and oscillatory motion of a cantilever beam so i thought a spot of blogging would do me good. 🙂

And so since my last post, this song has been running in my head:

Daniel Beddingfield – If You’re Not The One

If you’re not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you’re not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you’re not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don’t know why you’re so far away
But I know that this much is true
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you’re the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

‘Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
‘Cause I love you, whether it’s wrong or right
And though I can’t be with you tonight
You know my heart is by your side

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

Although there’s a lot in the song that i won’t exactly promote to other people, i think i understand what all the questions that he poses to himself in the song mean…about how he’d just know.

That aside, i’ve noticed something that was said last year by Yanchang, that people always seem to respond with a “tired” or “stressed” when asked how they’re doing.  I think it’s in times of that kinda feeling where all the more we have to spend time with God and with other people, talking to them and being there for them.  Some people ask me why i bother spending so much time talking to people or showing snippets of concern to them (i know i also tend to show a lack thereof, so spare me on that – i’m still only human, to which i’ll say something about that later).  I guess i really believe that it’s a worthwhile investment that will pay off one day, which is something even my parents have a hard time understanding why i value it so much more than studies though i do spend time studying and doing my best.

This also leads me to think about the past few weeks where i’ve been feeling very isolated, for lack of a better word.  It reminds me of how one can be surrounded by people and yet still feel lonely – only that my focus here now is on how there seems to be a lack of support on my side.  At times i’m left hanging at the edge of the cliff and it’s just me and God – which is a good thing i suppose.  I’m also grateful to JM and LionKing for spending time to really dig out everything and guide me in one way or another, and the few friends i know who are (perhaps unconsciously) keeping me accountable – diTz, Wormy, Ms. SpellMeBackwards and Piggyiling.  But what surprises me when i thought about this is not that i’m lacking support (God gives all readily and He’s there 24-7); instead, it’s about where i’ve gotten it from.  With the exception of JM and LionKing, the rest i never would have expected to have come up in that sector of my life (the private sector, if you will).  And for those i would have expected it to come from…well i guess God has a way of teaching me that His plans are really higher than mine, and i can’t do any better. 😀  Thanks goes to all those mentioned above, you know who you are 🙂

On a more humourous note, i’ve been receiving a lot of emails congratulating me on getting into the finals for Singapore Idol through my NUS email.  I guess it doesn’t really help that SG Idol Finalist Jonathan Leong is also my age and matriculated in the same year as me.  I’m sure he’d appreciate the support that he has from many many people out there (just by counting the number of good wishes emails i’ve gotten in his stead), provided that they were sent to the right email, thus allowing him to read them XD

And so after a half hour respite, it’s back to measuring amplitudes and nodal positions.  Thank you folks, you’ve been a great audience.  Please remember to take all your belongings with you when you leave, especially your car keys and husbands.  Push your chairs in after you leave, and line up in two straight rows, hold your partner’s hands as you walk out of the room, and don’t forget to tip the ushers. 😉

When the road seems long
When it all seems wrong
I will hold your hand and help you be strong
When you start to fall
When you give it all
I will come to your side when you call
Just remember, i’ll fly on the wings of your prayers

There’s a bright silver lining
Just behind the darkest of clouds
You can find the sun still shining
If you let your faith show you how

Take 6, Wings of your Prayers

Dedicated to a friend who sounds extremely tired, even over sms and email. I may not be there physically but i think the best thing anyone can do for another brother or sister is to pray for him/her.

Before the Throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A Great High Priest whose name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me
My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin
Because the sinless Saviour died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me

Behold Him there! The risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I AM
The King of Glory and of Grace
One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased with His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Saviour and my God

– Before the Throne of God Above, Various Artists

Before Sonicflood came out with the newer version of this hymn, it was originally written in 1863.  ‘Twas a long time ago, that was; but yet it continues to play in my mind and remind me of the great Story that has stood through the ages – a story as unchangeable as history and as undeniable as truth.

Past meets present and moves on to the future.

I'm lying alone with my head on the phone
Thinking of you till it hurts
I know you're hurt too but what else can we do,
Tormented and torn apart
I wish I could carry your smile in my heart
For times when my life seems so low
It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring
When today doesn't really know, doesn't really know

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you
I know you were right believing for so long
I'm all out of love, what am I without you?
I can't be too late to say that I was so wrong

I want you to come back and carry me home
Away from these long lonely nights
I'm reaching for you, are you feeling it too
Does the feeling seem oh so right
And what would you say if I called on you now
And said that I can't hold on
There's no easy way, it gets harder each day
Please love me or I'll be gone, I'll be gone…

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you
I know you were right believing for so long
I'm all out of love, what am I without you?
I can't be too late to say that I was so wrong

Oh, what are you thinking of?
What are you thinking of?
What are you thinking of?
What are you thinking of?

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you
I know you were right believing for so long
I'm all out of love, what am I without you?
I can't be too late
I know I was so wrong

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you
I know you were right believing for so long
I'm all out of love, what am I without you?
I can't be too late
I know I was so wrong

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you
I know you were right believing for so long
I'm all out of love, what am I without you?
I can't be too late to say that I was so wrong

Gosh i really really like this song, it could go on repeat nearly forever.  I really should learn how to play this song on the piano.
