别怕我伤心

张信哲 – 别怕我伤心

好久没有你的信

好久没有人陪我谈心

怀念你柔情似水的眼睛

是我天空最美丽的星星

异乡的午夜特别冷清

一个男人和一颗热切的心

不知在远方的你是否能感应

 

我从来不敢给你任何诺言

是因为我知道我们太年轻

你追求的是一种浪漫感觉

还是那不必负责任的热情

心中的话到现在才对你表明

不知道你是否会因此而清醒

让身在远方的我不必为你担心

 

一颗爱你的心

时时刻刻为你转不停

我的爱也曾经 深深温暖你的心灵

你和他之间是否已经有了真感情

别隐瞒 对我说

别怕我伤心

伤心太平洋

伤心太平洋

原唱:任贤齐

作曲:中岛みゆき

 

离开真的残酷吗

或者温柔才是可耻的

或者孤独的人无所谓

无日无夜无条件

前面真的危险吗

或者背叛才是体贴的

或者逃避比较容易吧

风言风语风吹沙

往前一步是黄昏

退后一步是人生

风不平浪不静心还不安稳

一个岛锁住一个人

 

我等的船还不来

我等的人还不明白

寂寞默默沈没沈入海

未来不再我还在

如果潮去心也去

如果潮来你还不来

浮浮沈沈往事浮上来

回忆回来你已不在

 

一波还未平息

一波又来侵袭

茫茫人海狂风暴雨

一波还来不及

一波早就过去

一生一世如梦初醒

深深太平洋底深深伤心

 

离开真的残酷吗

或者温柔才是可耻的

或者孤独的人无所谓

无日无夜无条件

风不平浪不静心还不安稳

我等的船还不来

我等的人还不明白

寂寞默默沈没沈入海

回忆回来你已不在

 

一波还未平息

一波又来侵袭

茫茫人海狂风暴雨

一波还来不及

一波早就过去

一生一世如梦初醒

深深太平洋底深深伤心

 

一波还未平息

一波又来侵袭

茫茫人海狂风暴雨

一波还来不及

一波早就过去

一生一世如梦初醒

深深太平洋底深深伤心

深深太平洋底深深伤心

 

Is saying goodbye really that cruel?

Perhaps warmth is really shameful

Perhaps it’s all right for the lonely

No strings attached, day or night

Is there really danger upfront?

Perhaps betrayal is being considerate

Perhaps running away is easier

Idle talk blowing in the sands

One step ahead lies dusk

One step behind lies life

Uneven winds, restless waves, still an unquiet heart

Imprisoned on an island alone

 

The ship I wait for has not arrived

The person I wait for does not realize

Loneliness silently submerges into the sea

The future goes, but I remain

When the current goes, the heart too

When the current comes, you refuse

Floating and sinking, the past rises up

When Memory returns, you are gone

 

One wave is yet to calm

Another wave invades

A sea of faces, brash winds and storms

One wave is late

Another wave has left

Eternity spent waking from a dream

As the Pacific’s abyss is, so are Sorrows’ depths.

Exit light, enter night

Why the hell would I title this after a Metallica song, especially when I don’t listen to them? Because I hear this damn song everyday on the desktop demo set on display!

Now imagine listening to this song on loop, for a few hours. It was quite bad, so bad that my colleague was begging me to change the song. On the other hand, there are plenty of Chinese pop MVs on the demo set laptops to distract me.

There are plenty of girls passing by to look at also. We always keep our eyes peeled for a certain manager from a competing shop. She’s the bomb!

I’m quite satisfied with my last paycheck and commission, but seriously, work is beginning to take its toil. Each day I’m worrying about how to sell the sets at such ridiculously low prices while trying to achieve as high a commission as possible. I thought convincing customers to buy was bad enough. Now I need to worry about how much money I can make. Some customers are too much; they won’t even let me earn my living.

Maybe the next time you bargain, you’ll consider the livelihood of the salesman. It’s not easy being a salesman. Bloody idiots, bargain bargain bargain, you want me to eat dirt is it? I remember on more than one occasion:

Me: Sir, this software is going for 50% discount. You can purchase it at $50.

Customer: zha kor nia! (fifty dollars only!) Give me la!

Give me la?! I should be asking you to give me fifty dollars you piece of dung! I don’t even earn than much in a day!

Aunty Phyllis is right; I think I’m getting stressed. When she sees Mum in Church, she says that Mum says that I always look stressed. I don’t know, maybe it’s due to the fact that I always go to bed so late. Then again, why do my parents have to tell me stuff through other people? But I digress.

Need I be so worked up? Actually I enjoy this job better than my previous one. Hell, sitting in a cold office, it is a struggle to keep awake. With this sales job, I need not worry about dozing off. There is never a dull moment, unless of course it is a very quiet weekday.

I ran into Father David on my Friday off day. I said I would try to rush down for Sunday’s meeting as I was coming from work.

Father David: You know, it’s a sin to work on Sunday…

Me: Yes, but I don’t miss Mass.

Father David: But still….

Me: =P

And the Mass readings for 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The first reading read, ‘Vanity of vanities, all is vanity!’ The Gospel talked about the man hoarding wealth and not thinking of what happens when he dies.

I don’t want to turn out like that fool. Ever since I started work I haven’t been attending my daily Masses or going to Adoration as often. I know, I need to plan my time better, but it has been difficult. I have such lousy discipline, which is manifested by the fact that I’m typing this instead of going to bed. But really, I need to get this off my chest.

St Lucy of Syracuse, patron of salesmen, pray for us.

P.S Here’s how the song goes anyway:

Enter sandman – Metallica

Say your prayers little one
Dont forget, my son
To include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Somethings wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they arent of snow white

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take

Hush little baby, dont say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
Its just the beast under your bed,
In your closet, in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land

The light before we land

In cases such as these I'd like a hand
Don't wake me up without a master plan
With black & white instead of colour
Don't you understand?
When things that once were beautiful
Are bland

And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of me
Haven for us

In truth there is no better place to be
Than falling out of darkness still to see

Without a premonition
Could you tell me where we stand?
I'd hate to lose this light
Before we land

And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Haven for us

Before we let euphoria
Convince us we are free
Remind us how we used to feel
Before when life was real

And when I feel like I can feel once again
Let me stay awhile
Soak it in awhile
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
Buy a little time
For this head of mine
Haven for us

the delgados - the light before we land

Lies and Truth

Common tests start tomorrow. I managed to finish most of the revision. I just hope that I can pull this off flawlessly.

I went to St Anne’s Church fun fair today. They were having their Feast Day. I bought one of those wrist bands. This one says, “Defend Life!” It glows in the dark too!

Some young teacher in Maris Stella died. I never knew her. She was a new teacher. It was heart failure, according to the official story. However, I am not going to speculate on the unofficial story. I will just continue to pray, for the living and the dead.

Even if the school authorities are withholding the truth from everyone, I guess they have a reason to. It, is a dirty word. Go figure.

Before Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger the so-called ‘Panzerkardinal’ became Benedict XVI this year, in the year 2000 he said, “Truth has always bothered people and is never comfortable.” I guess that is true. (no pun intended!) I mean, how long can we run away?

We should instead turn around and run forward.

Have you ever wondered what your dreams are supposed to mean? Well, I’d like to know. I’ve had many strange dreams in the past one year. My dreams are like a mirror of my life. They tell me what I am, and what I am not. But I have never succeeded in understanding them fully. Maybe it’s meant to be this way?

It is very hard to forget the dreams of old. But I try to forget the impossible ones.

君が見えなくて 見えなくて

何度も呼びかけるよ

こんなにそばにいるのに 

会いたくて・・・止められなくて

壊れそうなほど抱きしめていても

君が届かない

Lies and Truth 墜ちてゆく

真実を探せない

誰より大切なのに 信じてる気持ち揺れてる

壊れそうなほど抱きしめていても

君が届かない

(I can’t see you, can’t see you
I call out countless times
Though you’re this close to me
I miss you… I can’t stop it
Even if I hold you so tight you seem about to break
You don’t realize it

Lies and truth, I’m falling
I can’t find the truth
Though I treasure you more than anyone
My belief in you wavers
Even if I hold you so tight you seem about to break
You don’t realize it)

L’arc en ciel – Lies and Truth

the delgados – The Light Before We Land

In cases such as these I'd like a hand

Don't wake me up without a master plan

With black & white instead of colour

Don't you understand?

When things that once were beautiful

(Gunslinger Girl OP)

I finally finished transposing Down in Adoration Falling for the xylophone. So cool! I'll post it when I feel like it.

31st December 2004 – 2nd January 2005

31st December 2004

Today school ended at 10 Am. I went home. Joshua came over. We all had lunch, then headed down to pasir ris for chalet. My brother came along too. Reached there at about 5pm.. We went down to the park to play some games then came back to BBQ at 6 or so. Food was cooked by Pet, and it was f***ing good!

Then we had the countdown to 2005. We had the sparklers and party poppers and of course, the wine. Some of us threw the sparklers into the air to the other side of the block and the maintainence fellows came to berate us several times. Lol.

1st January 2005

Welcome to the new year all ye punks. So we continued playing our games. Eugene had this game. Damn funny. You have 2 blocks of styrofoam. Use them to perform a short act. Repeat until a team runs out of ideas. Damn damm funny! You ought to have seen it! Oh yeah, my brother and Joshua were so high that I was the alcohol medic for that day. Kept bringing cups of water and forcing them to drink. Water dilutes their blood alcohol. Then there was truth or dare. A lot of funny forfeits. Like asking Robin when was the last time he scratched his balls. Like asking Dominic to go ask for a girl’s number outside. Like asking my brother to go beg for some food. Like asking me what it is like to see somebody you like. Like asking me to say I love you to everybody in the room. Basket…purposely one… -_-”

Then there was the game about the murderer. The detective has to find the murder before it’s too late. It’s involves sending impulses to ‘kill’ people by squeezing each others’ hands. Oh they had fun with that one, though I kept getting caught. After that game they starting talking about racist jokes. I went to sleep for half and hour before coming down again. So funny. Some of us got bored at around 6 something, so we went walking around and then came back at 6/30? Ah, I went to look for toilet paper to shit, but then the whole damn place can’t find. Then I checked my pocket and found tissue there. Shit! Wasted my energy walking up and down. So here’s some advice for you. When going to chalet, bring toilet rolls. Damn cheapo NTUC only gives one roll.

Most of them were knocked out by 7. I was the only one not sleeping. I was listening to music, walking around aimlessly in the room, and thinking. I simply did not feel like sleeping. So I did some writing. I’ll show you what I had come up with that day sometime soon. But anyway I did end up sleeping at 7.30. Woke up at 8.30 or 9, to hear Dominic complaining about how bored he was. I must say, he really changed a lot after going to the army. He is more vulgar now, and is super cynical. Alamak boss, what happened? Time changes everything I guess.

All of them were awake at 10. So we cleaned up and checked out. We went in Prisca’s father’s bus to white sands to eat lunch. I really did not feel like eating. I dunno, I had this sense of ennui. Either I had too little sleep, too much alcohol (Wtf, a few cups of wine then like that? You sux man..), and either because….never mind…I don’t know what happened, but I didn’t talk to her much this time. Mostly one-liners. Hmm.

Came home with Joshua and my brother at around one something pm. Quite early. Was supposed to join Pet and some of them at night for another gathering, but I figured that I had no money and no mood. I wonder if they did go in the end. Slept at 3 something pm to 8 pm. Stayed up till 3 AM after Gabriel told me that there was camp evaluation after Curia the next day. Finished my group’s evaluation.

2nd January 2005

Damn it, received Pet’s SMS. There would be no camp evaulation till next Saturday. Stayed up for nothing, bah. Was late for CL. Did not hear the alarm ring at 7 am. Was woken up by Darren Ho’s frantic call of “Where are you!? Coming or not!?”. So my brother and I went down anyway. Dear Mother sent us there, but not before lecturing us for sleeping late. Hmm.

Went to Metro with parents after church. Father had voucher from the bank. I bought a pair of pants for the chinese new year. Went for Curia after that. But we had to pick up Matthew from PS first. Traffic was really terrible. There was this accident too. Badly smashed up front carriage. Shit man. So we were really late for meeting. It started at 1pm. We came at 1.30pm.

Went for Joshua’s birthday at night. A really small affair. The steamboat and hot plate was really great. Had some drinks too. Tried vodka for the first time. It’s tasty. Makes me feel warm inside.

 

Damn it…. have I become some kind of drunkard? I was thinking about the disaster that just occurred few days ago. And…it didn’t really strike me too much. I merely thought to myself, “God have mercy on us, and on the whole world.” and merely “Life goes on.” Has my heart turned cold? I did pray for them, but then I did not know what else to do. Does time really change everything, my heart, your heart, everybody’s heart? I don’t know, but 2005 is not going to be an ordinary year. I will just continue discovering about life, love, joy, sorrow, anger, and death.

 

Take my hand and join me. Let us touch the future.

 

 

“All Through The Night” by Cyndi Lauper

All through the night
I’ll be awake and I’ll be with you
All through the night
This precious time when time is new
Oh, all through the night today
Knowing that we feel the same without saying

We have no past we won’t reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end

All through the night
stray cat is crying so stray cat sings back
All through the night
They have forgotten what by day they lack
Oh under those white street lamps
There is a little chance they may see

We have no past we won’t reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end

Oh the sleep in your eyes is enough
Let me be there let me stay there awhile

We have no past we won’t reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end
