人要学会 停止流浪 我也一样.
I love this song..and the melody just keeps repeating in my head.
What struck me the most was the bridge:
I can totally appreciate the feeling..it’s quite sickening sometimes, which is why I don’t really like big crowds or noisy places buzzing with activity.
I hate the feeling after a party, when everyone starts leaving and soon you’re back to being alone. Well, not really alone – you have a shitload of junk with you, which you need to clear up, and you might have been better off without the party coz then you’d still end up alone but you wouldn’t have the junk to clean up in the first place.
(It’s something like the feeling of the last day of school term break; you know the fun and laughter is going to end..and there’s this feeling of dread coz you know you haven’t touched all your holiday homework. For the record, I have never once finished my holiday homework promptly: always last minute -.-)
I dislike going to posh places/functions/dinners as well. We have to dress up for it, wear makeup, suits and tie and everything, and immerse ourselves in all the hype and fun and merry-making and confusion of it all. But towards the end I always feel so tired and exhausted, and heave a sigh of relief when it’s all over and I can remove my burdensome clothes and the mask I put on to conform to social norms and entertain others – I’d much prefer to chit-chat over a cuppa with a best friend any old day. At least then I can be myself, or whatever I feel like being at that moment. (since it’s sometimes really hard to know what is “being yourself”)
I suppose that’s what those two lines mean..or at least that’s how I’d interpret them.
But then again, as the lyrics say, 没有体验过热闹后的失落感，我们又怎会了解平凡的可贵呢。Maybe I don’t detest crowds that much after all.
(I realise I’ve been writing sad/emo/contemplative stuff recently. I shall try to write about happy things next time.)
