is emotionally distant.

I bet no one's surprised that you never post your current mood. In fact, I bet most of your friends are so sick of you locking them out of your life that they hate you behind your back. Shame.

渔家傲

塞下秋来风景异
衡阳雁去无留意
四面边声连角起
千嶂里
长烟落日孤城闭
浊酒一杯家万里
燕然未勒归无计!
羌管悠悠霜满地
人不寐
将军白发征夫泪。 --范仲淹



At The Frontier

It's autumn at the frontier, the scene has changed.
Wild geese flying south do not intend to stay.
From all sides the horns echo,
Encircled by a thousand peaks,
The smoke streaks, the sun sets, the lonely fort is closed.
Weak wine fills the cup, adn home is a thousand miles away.
Without an indelible victory, there's no plan to return!
The Tartar flute draws on over the frost-bound land.
One could barely sleep,
The general's hair turns white, and the soldiers weep. -- Fan Zhongyan


** Downloaded Mandarin IME just for this. It's my most favourite Song Dynasty Lyrics. Painfully bleak but poignant.
For sharing with all and mcflurry.

A little bit of soap...

usually i dont post lyrics, but while gymming this evening i overhead a really lame version of an oldie that i've not heard in years.

A Little Bit of Soap
The Jarmels

Words and Music by Bert Berns (a/k/a Bert Russell)

Peaked at # 12 in 1961
This popular oldie was later covered as minor singles by Garnet Mimms in 1965, by The
Exciters in 1966, by Paul Davis in 1970, and by Nigel Olsson as a Top 40 hit in 1979.

A little bit of soap will wash away your lipstick on my face
But a little bit of soap will never never never ever erase
The pain in my heart and my eyes as I go through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears

Mmm, a little bit of soap will wash away your powder from my chin
A little bit of soap will never never never ever begin
To take away the hurt that I feel as I go through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears, mmm, mmm, mmm

Have you heard when love begins to die it leaves someone to cry night and
Day?
Like a bird, you left your robin's nest and-a just like all the rest you flew away

Mmm, a little bit of soap will take away your perfume eventually
But a little bit of soap will never wash away the memory
Of your name in the night that I call through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears

I'll never lose the memory of your name in the night that I call through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears
Mmm, a little bit of soap-a will never wash away my tears
FADE
Mmm, it's gonna never, never, never, uh-huh, wash away my tears
