NEW YORK (AP) — Subway says an ingredient dubbed the “yoga mat chemical” will be entirely phased out of its bread by next week.
林師傑 - 小木偶的話
Sub-theme song for TVB sitcom Come Home Love.
I loved this song ever since it first came out in December 2012! After so long finally there is an official audio! There are added lyrics at the end too.
This song compares himself to Pinocchio. He lies regardless of whether he’s happy or sad. It’s become to a point that he can lie as naturally as breathing. He feels bad about it and urges himself to stop. No matter what happens when he says the truth, at least he won’t feel regretful like he does now. He lies in order to avoid responsibility. He hides behind all these lies, because he feels that no one understands him. He hopes to breakaway from all these lies by himself. At the very end, he could. He is now free.
In terms of the drama, 阿飛 lacks self confidence. He says that people judge him by his looks before considering his talents, abilities, personality. Also, 阿飛 feels ashamed of his upbringing as you can see he has to live at the back of his boss’s store, lacking academic degrees, clumsy, lacking a loving family, lonely, etc. That’s why he chooses to hide behind a Pinocchio mask. After the appearance of 思思, these ideas are more apparent. 阿飛 feels inferior to someone like 思思. He is afraid of her rejection so he chooses to hide his feelings (behind a mask).
Generally the gist of this song. 👍
Some old memories.
