“Love Is Ever-present”

Recently stumbled upon this song on my playlist. I love the lyrics so much. It’s bittersweet.

 

“Love Is Ever-present”

 

After grocery shopping, they cook dinner together

For her, he gets home as quick as possible

Love is ever-present, but when one is seeking for it, it appears nowhere to be found

 

On the tiny balcony, she takes away the withered bonsai plant

He faces the beer mug, waiting for the next download

Love is ever-present, but then again, so is sadness

 

Love is…

On the streets, in the little alley ways, in the sea of people

But who would love to be stranded on a tiny island, never to leave?

When love isn’t meant to be, that can’t be the only time to love

It doesn’t matter where one is, love is always there

 

My love is present as the sunset hits your fringe

Your love is present as you’re tying my neck tie in the mornings

We all want love but rarely end up having it

Hard to understand, we can only hope for it

Love is ever-present

 

That is love, in retrospect, I’ve realized that this is love

Whether it is crying, or smiling, it all has to do with love

It matters not if it’s good or bad

 

The snowflake always yearns to see the cherry blossoms bloom

Liang Shan Bo let down Zhu Ying Tai*

No matter when or where, there is always sadness everywhere

 

Love is…

Under the sun’s shining rays, under the warm candlelight, every speck of dust

Who would love to sit in the dark, never to stray into the light?

When love isn’t meant to be, that can’t be the only time to love

It doesn’t matter where one is, love is always there

 

The breeze relies on the branches to dance

The seeds depend on the soil to break loose

Love is in all the world’s wonders

Even if the eye cannot see it, love is still there, exceeding one’s expectations

 

My girl, come over quick

Love is anticipating (love is there, love is there)

Love is ever-present

Our love is ever-present

 

My love is present when I’m downstairs looking for your door

Your love is present when you’re leaning on my back

We want love, yet always end up separating

Hard to comprehend, we can only hope for it

Love is ever-present

 

*something like a Chinese Romeo and Juliet
