Separate Lives in different worlds

When I told you how sorry I am for what I've done to you during our trip to Barcelona. You simply answered:
"Don't be sorry - it was fine, really. I've realized that we both live different lives now - but that's just the way it is."
I can't help to cry instantly... 

I think of one old song, "Separate Lives" by Phil Collins...

We definitely changed, after 9 years separation... From your words, I know I became more serious, realistic, stressful and not happy obviously, and I admit what you said it's all true. I don't know why I become like this, and I don't want it to be either...

But my dear, life is harsh and cruel. And we can't never go back to "the age of innocent" again...

It seems nothing we can do about it. I want to change the present situation but I just can't. We are forced to face our reality lives everyday, and we keep on going our own ways... I just feel the life in Europe is more and more far away from me after this trip, it's so hard for me to go back again for there are just too many connections to the land I grew up with now. Actually I feel very very helpless and desperated, coz you know living in Europe once was my dream, and maybe still now....

But still I thank God, I don't think many people will meet their first love again after 9 years. Not even mention to travel with and accomplish the itinerary that planned together and do it together even more... At least we had a beautiful memory for the trip, I think it's all worthy then...

see the reflection of me on the train back to BCN


See you there too...


Would the reflection of we two will show up at the same time on the same train again ever since?


Separate lives


You called me from the room in your hotel
All full of romance for someone that you met
And telling me how sorry you were leaving so soon
And that you miss me sometimes
When you're alone in your room
Do I feel lonely too ?

You have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
We can't go on just holding on to time
Now that we're living separate lives

Well I held on to let you go
And if you lost your love for me
Well you never let it show
There was no way to compromise
So now we're living separate lives

Ooh, it's so typical
Love leads to isolation
So you build that wall
Yes, you build that wall
And you make it stronger

Well you have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
Someday I might find myself looking in your eyes
But for now, we'll go on living separate lives
Yes for now, we'll go on living separate lives
Separate lives

分開的生活

你從旅館房間打電話給我
言談中充滿了對邂逅男子的浪漫情愫
你說你離開得太早,對我感到很抱歉
你有時候會想起我
當你孤伶伶待在房間裡的時候
問我是否也會寂寞?

你沒有權利問我的感受
你沒有權利這麼親切的跟我說話
我倆不該這樣下去,那只是浪費時間而已
現在,我倆過著分開的生活

是我堅持要讓你走
即使你已失去對我的愛
你也是不動聲色
沒有妥協的餘地
現在,我倆過著分開的生活

噢,那真具有象徵意義
愛竟成了孤寂
於是你築起了城牆
是的,你築起了城牆
而且城牆越來越牢固

你沒有權利問我的感受
你沒有權利這麼親切的跟我說話
有一天,我也許會發現自己正望著你的雙眼
但今後,我倆依然會過著分開的生活
沒錯,此後我倆仍會過著分開的生活
過著分開的生活

The Youth without a Regret

When you were young
if you fell in love with someone
please, please treat him(her) tenderly
No matter how long you loved each other

if you could always treat each other tenderly
then, every moment would be an immaculate beauty
If you had to part
please say goodbye nicely
be thankful in your heart 
thank him(her) for the memory

When you grow up you will know
at the moment you look back suddenly
a youth without the resentment will be regretless
like that silent plenilune over the hill

poem by Xi Murong

無怨的青春

在年青的時候
如果你愛上了一個人
請你一定要溫柔地對待她
不管你們相愛的時間有多長或多短

若你們能始終溫柔地相待   那麼
所有的時刻都將是一種無暇的美麗
若不得不分離   也要好好地說一聲再見
也要在心裡存著感謝   感謝她給了你一份記憶

長大了之後   你才會知道
在驀然回首的一剎
沒有怨恨的青春   才會了無遺憾
如山崗上那靜靜的晚月
