:: Wall in China ::

Sometimes I have this feeling of inadequacy; that there is this invisible wall around me.
The invisible wall made from the bricks from the best-to-be-forgotten childhood years.
It is like there is a gap that I need to feel, yet I know not how to fill it.
When this happens, I do what I think I should do, but it usually comes out odd, and repels.

Annie Lennox summed it aptly:

"Some people never say the words "I love you"
It's not their style to be so bold
Some people never say the words "I love you"
But like a child they're longing to be told

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
And I've got a wall around me
That you can't even see

It took a little time
To get next to me

If something goes wrong, I'm the first to admit it
The first to admit it - but the last one to know
If something goes right, well, it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
Because it's such an unusual sight, oh
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right"

I can't get used to something so right.

one of her best

people overlooked her album of covers, but like the quote picked, the songs and the lines contained are both piercing in their truthfulness and heartbreakingly applicable to life as we know it. favourite: "waiting in vain"


Coz what you have to give might not be what the other party can accept all the time I supposed.

dunno the context. just guessing from the lyrics :D

well the only thing i've every realised about the walls we build around ourselves, is that they can only been torn down, from the inside out....

And sometimes upon tearing the wall around us, we tend to build another together when we click up with one another. Perhaps it's just human nature to draw lines and be in the comfort zone of pointlessness.

how very true.

how very true.

her lyrics resonates. We never like to get too emotional but we like others to be with us, we think things never go right with our lives, but when it does we play it down hoping it will last but we know it will not so in the meantime we cant appreciate the good thing tat happens to us until it disppears.

Guess we shld learn to appreciate life more

walls are usually only as strong this:
the second you realize you have them is the second they start falling.

this grid has some magic...

I know u probably not so "mandarin", but if u have time tomorrow, I would suggest u go watch the chinese play "Shithole". It's kind of thought-provoking on topics like idealism. Dunno why, but after the show, first thing I've thought is to recommend this to u.

Like one of the actresses said as her real life experience, "In the end, I'm courageous as I've tried to go towards my ideals. And I hoped my friends around me will too. If you've not tried, then don't whine."
