    Sandy Lam's Latest MV - Face To Face

    ¡@

    Yesterday was like the past life
    With a looming blurry face and
    not capable of telling details--an
    Inexplicable feeling

    Whether feeling has presaged the happening, or
    Happening has exerted the feeling, it's
    Like joining the dots,
    Bespeaking a broken heart

    A moment like lightning sparkles the thunder,
    at the split second when eyes are open and
    Heart is ashened,
    Truth to be revealed

    Perhaps it goes too flourishingly
    That quickens the fading
    Red and sodden eyes can finally
    See the hidden truth lurking over horizon

    The past lives in the room next door
    Phone call that was never answered
    Scenes playing insouciantly in my mind, but
    Once I let let go and
    Open my eyes I finally see the truth

    I finally summon the courage to face myself
    With a sobriety that is a disguise of cowardness, which
    Restores me back to senses
    Being together and breaking apart are merely two faces of life, and
    I no longer need nobody's hug, but
    Find myself in my own cozy room

    I finally summon the courage to face myself
    With a perfection that is a disguise of blemishes, which
    Restores me back to sense
    Right and wrong are merely two ways of life, and
    I can embrace my shortcomings, but
    Find myself in my own cozy room

    I finally summon the courage to face myself
    With a perfection that is a disguise of blemishes, which
    Restores me back to senses
    Gain and loss are no more than two sides of a coin, though
    It is always flipped to one side, but I find
    Blue sky in my room
