Never Too Late

i drafted this post a few days ago, just to share with you this MTV & a song that’s close to my heart.

for those who are into Leo Ku’s “爱得太迟”, or… Timbaland & One Republic’s “Apologise”. i am sorry to say… i don’t liked the songs. no offense to the singer or any fans. i personally didn’t liked the song because it’s filled with negative emotions, and anger, and hurt, and unforgiving. but… i liked Leo Ku, if you have listened from here.

now… choose a better song to handle emotions, alright?

of course i’d understand that… when you are down in the pit, you don’t usually rejoice over up-to-beat cheerful songs. the matter of fact is, we LOVE to mourn over emo songs. for example, when i wave good-bye to a relationship… it hurts but i wasn’t too in touch with my emotions, i didn’t know if i’m okay or whatnot. and so i went for a karaoke session so i could “let it out”. the list on the screen are the songs that fits exactly to how i felt. and well, they are basically… THE emo songs & reminiscence tracks.

why is it when we knew it hurts us even more, but we still enjoy digging into sorrows? is like pouring salt on the wound. because… over the years, we get ourselves to get used to live with broken lives, broken relationships, broken… everything.

first off, watch the MTV & listen closely to the lyrics, see if you could relate to the way i’ve felt.

this video shows a scene of hope, Adam (Three Days Grace’s frontman) and his wife wrote this, it is about Adam’s drug habit. showing that it’s not too late; it’s never too late to give up. He said, “this song is about being in a very dark place, but being able to see a way out.”

there’s a number of illustrations laid in this MTV, could you figure out some?

  • a little girl dancing with her parents
  • a woman struggling in a mental institution
  • the man in a sweater
  • bandages over the parents’ eyes
  • arms restrained by leather belt
  • the man flipping the bed
  • the black-winged man
  • butterfly
  • medical instruments
  • black hand prints

看这 MTV 时,有蛮多的感触。因为…生命里、家里曾有毒贩。从他的角度观看,世界很可能,也是这么样的吧?经过多少次的高潮、满足感、尝试解脱、挣扎、失望、信念…他是多么地渴望爱和援手,我们可了解?

影片里的小女孩起床与父母共舞。看那幸福的她转变成挣扎的女人。成熟时期也同时是最脆弱的,影片里,女孩和女人是同样的角色,而描述的差别,就是那份童真和成熟。忽然间,切入女人挣扎的画面。再续回她和父母共舞的镜头。

当父母放手离开时,穿着毛衣的男人以笑容接触她、抚摸她的肩膀。就好比,失去父母的重要出席(也可能是信任、关爱)同时,可以找到的寄托和快活…也只有依靠毒品了。

画面迅速切换。小女孩,女人,家人,病院。蹦蹦跳跳的瞬间,父母的眼睛被绷带封闭,“冇眼睇”。父母不再理解她,也很可能变得不体贴了。要在这样的情况之下,完全以无条件的爱接纳一个人…我可以理解,那样,真的,不是普通的说到办到。纵使有着坚强的意念和巩固的爱,以我们脆弱的人心,也是难免动摇。在挣扎的瞬间,我们看见,捆绑手腕的皮带,时而演变为那毛衣男人的手部。

他把女孩的温暖被窝给倒翻了。

当女孩远离那男人,逼近镜头时,黑色羽毛和黑翅膀男人现身了。他描述着挣扎、意志力和奋斗。她,正努力脱离苦海。在医疗器皿间展翅的蝴蝶,代表着希望、救赎和解脱。

乌黑的手印填满了小女孩的生命、安全的小窝、房间的墙壁。

当黑色羽毛渐渐掉落时,女孩渐渐从挣扎中解脱。

当女人接近镜头时,那羽毛好似形成翅膀的模样。

death isn’t the only option in our darkest hours; for as long as God have not (and will not) given up on you, it’s seriously… Never Too Late

to repent
to forgive
to accept
to love

again.
