here comes the sun: part 1

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

it feels like it's been a year since the sun smiled on us. for days we did nothing but stay at home (and we are actually lucky we can stay in our homes -- unlike others who had to flee and look for evacuation centers). if i hadn't quit smoking yet, i'm sure two packs of djarum black won't be enough for me during those days.

it was raining all day, all night. floods here and everywhere

what I always keep in mind is… this, too, shall pass.

here comes the sun: part 2

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here

yesterday was a lot different. the sun showed its might, and for the first time in so many days, it stayed up in the heavens shining proudly. i couldn't be happier. (i can, actually -- hehehe -- but that's enough for now. a lot of people were so happy even a thousand MF classical guitars won’t be enough to overpower the sound of their joy.

as I've said, this, too, shall pass.

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right

the show

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out, it's bringing me down
I know I've got to let it go and just enjoy the show

The sun is hot in the sky just like a giant spotlight
The people follow the signs and synchronize in time
It's a joke nobody knows, they've got a ticket to the show

This is me trying to be strong, singing with Lenka, enjoying "the show". To date, this is the longest time I have let myself be succumbed to despair. Each of us does that...once in a while. But what do you do when you get thrown into the sea? You swim.

I need to remind myself that, wen we are at our lowest point, we let our lowest instincts to rule. Only when we overcome this do we find what is aptly called inner strength. In these times, we should have that.

Who knows? I just might find myself inside a beautiful story, and this might just be the beginning. I could grow old contended and happy, needing nothing else but a comfortable bed and raised toilet seats for elderly.

In any case, I will just try to enjoy this show and see how it turns out.
