Review: Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell My rating: 5 of 5 stars   It’s beautifully written and if it was a map, a treasure map, to my eyes it would have so many X letters in it. Though I’ve been avoiding spoilers from the movie and reviews, I knew there was going to be multiple characters […]

[Copy paste. Love this song so much. Though I don’t have the skill to comprehend the lyrics (yet :P), but I’ll trust on the google result I found.]   悲しくないわけじゃないの 誰にも言わずにいただけ 「私、大人なんだから」 誰も傷つけないよう そうよ、笑って振る舞えるわ 「私、大人でしょ?」 強がらずに生きてくには その手にすがればよかっただけなのに 上手に泣けないでいる君へ 君が幸せでありますように 私が心から想ってるわ 君が幸せでいてくれるなら 私もね、強がって生きるわ 繋ぎとめるためになんて 涙は流したくない 「もう、大丈夫よ」 おかしいでしょ 見え見えの 悲しいくらいの嘘を わざと(ついて) 笑顔(つくる) そういう生き物よ 振り返らず生きてくには 何かを忘れてゆくものなのに 素直に泣けないでいる君へ 君が幸せでありますように […]
