I have been playing this song on repeat for the past 5 days. 五月天 Mayday – 你不是真正的快乐 You Are Not Truly Happy
Fact: I think many people heard this song not from Mayday, but from 邓紫棋 G.E.M Tang and thinks that Mayday did this as a rendition to G.E.M’s version. This is as far from truth as the saying that the sun rises from the west, or cows can fly. This song is Mayday’s, and G.E.M is the one who sang a rendition, in a TV show on top of that.
This song has some lyrics that hit a chord on my nerve and made me rather emo. That is why I love it. The more emo the song makes me, the more I want to play it on repeat.
You are not truly happy, your smile is just a camouflage that you wear
Which is why I hardly smile and as a result, being labeled a scary person. Most of the time, I just find it difficult to keep smiling for no apparent reason. I hate it when I need to put up a pleasant front when I am all stressed up. Of course, with work, you have to do all sorts of things that you hate anyway.
This world is smiling, so you smile together to appear sociable
Is there anyone here who is smiling for this reason? “I smile because everyone else is smiling, otherwise I would look like a douche”?
Why do you still need to be punished after losing something?
This part reminds me of Love Story. I remember when I first received the bad news, I was super depressed for at least a few months. Instead of being allowed to curl into a ball and wail in the corner, I had to pretend that I am fine and moving on with life. Mostly to avoid further concerns by friends and family. It was the most horrible time of my life. I experienced first hand how painful it is to pretend to be happy when what you really want is to be bitter. I have terrible migraines frequently. It was not good at all.
So… what about you all? Have you ever asked yourself if you are truly happy when you are smiling?
Pah… why am I writing this anyway? I’m so devoid of things to write about that I write rubbish now. Yikes…
Maybe I’ll do another progress update of my move tomorrow. I’m almost done..
