Firefly Prt 2

So all of you should have listen to the music and read the lyrics of this ‘old song’firefly. This song is introduced to me by Wong Thiam Jun, is that how to pronounce his name?, a F5 prefect in SMK Seri Mutiara. Thanks dude!

I don’t know this is call an opinion or what, but for somehow, every time I listen to this song, I got a weird feeling, I don’t know how to describe it in English, the Chinese description will be 酸溜溜的

OK, OK… I know this is a breakup-come-back-to-me song but somehow it gives me a feeling. A hard-to-let-go kinda feeling. Jeez… did I have a crush on person I haven’t met?! Is that even possible?! Never mind… So when I first listen to the song, the first thing which came into my mind is the departure of the Form 5s this year. I don’t even know what the connection between these two things is but that how my mind works. Weird isn’t it…

So I can already imagine myself, every morning going into the hall, sitting alone with no one to talk to or share my crazy thoughts or give me crazy thoughts.

As I got ‘enlightened’ yester-night that not everyone can accept my kind of craziness. OK, some of you might say that is actually my own personality problem, but I can’t do a thing to change it. Like Michael Wong song’s said, I am who I am.

Even the teachers agree that last year’s Form 4s are way more active comparing to this year’s. They can come up all kinds of odd but fun ideas. Maybe that’s why I prefer hanging out with the Form 5s than the Form 4s…

Due to my craziness in English Literature, this is how I interpret the song…

Firefly, a type of beetle which emits light. In another word, a bringer of light. The firefly plays the role of hope, friend, companion, spouse and girl/boyfriend in this song.

In the 1st and 2nd verse, the firefly had left the singer. Maybe because they had a quarrel, a misunderstanding or a problem. The singer expresses his/her longing of the return of the firefly after the firefly had left. The singer hope that he/she can gain forgiveness from the firefly and hope the it will take him/her away.

In the 3rd verse, the singer describes the similarity and closeness between him/her with the firefly and said that he/she plays a minor role in its life although the firefly can’t see it.

In the 5th verse, the singer hopes that the firefly can come back as soon as possible for he/she can’t stand another day without it

So this is how I interpret the song… For the other students who are taking Big L, maybe you should consider interpreting the song and maybe we can compare notes… lolx… as if anyone is that hard-working…
