楊丞琳 - 理想情人
Born in a different time
I often wonder if I should have been born in another time… My senses are unusually, well one could even say unnaturally, keen. And ours is an era of distraction. It’s a punishing drumbeat of constant input. This cacophony which follows us into our homes and into our beds, seeps into our souls, for want of a better word. For a long time, there was only one poultice for my raw nerve endings and that was copious drug use. So in my less productive moments, I’m given to wonder, if I had just been born when it was a little quieter out there, would I have even become an addict in the first place? Might I have been more focused - a more fully realized person?

I also sometimes wonder… and that commentary on “our era” - so true.
方大同 - 因為你
Khalil Fong - Because of You
After spending time with a girl, you feel exhausted because she takes more than she gives. After spending time with a woman, you feel invigorated, because she empowers you with possibility, and a passion for life.
