The Breakup (Not the Jennifer Aniston Flick!!!)


To the front of Wati who is now in Bukit Tunku, whom I hope is well.


Wati,

I think our relationship should end here. My love for you was real but I have been clapping with one hand. You were so mean to me at your becoming-day party, just because you were with your rich friends while I'm from a difficult family. I never know there was a prawn behind the rock all this while; you were using me to make your ex jealous! How my liver hurt when you showed your true self. I guess what they say is true: hornbills with hornbills, sparrows with sparrows. Let me now bring myself.


Maybe it was the Satan-water talking, but why did you have to call me such names? You dropped my face-water and scribbed charcoal all over my face. Once is enough. I don't want the banana to fuit two times.


I know I am just a dispatch guy I still have feelings. I thought you were my my liver-fruit but you saw me as just a pick-up brother at best and a joke at worst. All those times that we ate the wind at Lake Gardens, feeding the ducks and rowing the boats, I thought a love was blossoming. But you were planting sugarcane at your lips. I gave you my body and soul but after the honey had been extracted, the husk was thrown away.


What your friend Suzy said to me still plays in my ear, "Your fish-hook is so small, don't try to contend with the ocean!" How did she get the information about my fish-hook? Have you been telling stories from inside the mosquito-net?


I know my school is not as tall as yours. But I still have self-price. So just pretend I never exist in your life.


Yours in sadness,

Sham.

完美孤獨 Perfect Loneliness - 莫文蔚 Karen Mok



【完美孤獨】

曲︰莫文蔚 詞︰林夕 編︰Terence Teo 監︰張亞東

再沒有誰的臉色 需要照顧

也沒有誰的難題 需要應付

一個人睡著 或睡不著 喜歡看書 就看到日出

再沒有人有機會 讓我受苦

也沒有人有能力 讓我認輸

何必再等誰 一起訴苦 各自忙碌 有什麼好處

盲目如何變反目 愛的程序我早已爛熟 可是說

伴侶是身外之物我又不甘 不服

我希望覺悟 又害怕麻木

單身的好日子 有沒有虛渡

再完美的孤獨 算不算美中不足

一切心血再不會 白白付出

所有時間怎麼過 由我作主

愛過的愛人 一個個數 誰給過我 這一種滿足

愛情有一本賬簿 從盈到虧 我早已爛熟 可是說

伴侶是身外之物 我又不甘 不服

我希望覺悟 又害怕麻木

單身的好日子 有沒有虛渡

再完美的孤獨 算不算美中不足孤身

身處 何處有淨土 獨立 立在哪裡無寒露



「我這些年的生活都是離不開陌生的環境,每晚都可能睡在不同的飯店床上,可是對著一張又一張不一樣的床對我來說又可以是那麼地熟識,這種錯覺會讓我慢慢喜歡孤獨的感覺,我在寫這首歌的時候就是在一張陌生的床上。歌曲當中有一段沒有歌詞只有"嗚"哼唱著的,是這首歌曲的副歌的部份,當中我跟林夕有共識都認為沒有歌詞其實已經代表了千言萬語的孤獨感,沒有別的文字能取代,而歌曲的名字也是蠻分裂的感覺,孤獨到一個完美的地步是怎樣呢?你們體會過嗎?」
