Remember the Love

People come and go, but the memories stay. That’s what they say. Well I, I used to think that memories are fading in time. And the pain and the wound, they will get better in time too. As I grow up, I learn something about them. Memories aren’t fading, they’re just being buried in the deep of our thoughts. It could come up to the surface in any time. And the pain and the wound, they’re not getting better or healing. We just live with it, and become used to it. I also learn something else. It’s alright if sometimes we reminisce those memories. If they were beautiful memories, then why should we forget? If they were making us who we are today, then why should we’re ashamed to remember them? Even a driver has to look at the rearview mirror for the safe driving. So it’s okay to look back at the past, just for a while in some times, not always. And it’s okay to long for someone from the past, or just long for ourselves when we were with that person back then.

That time when you and I weren’t afraid of anything when we held each others’ hands. If only you stayed by my side, then I wouldn’t need anything else, that day.” –Apink, Luv
                                                         
Sad song doesn’t always have a sad melody. Yup, there are sad songs that have a pretty cheerful melody. So why don’t we live up the sadness with a bright melody? Here is the song for today’s My Choices: Continue Living, titled “Luv”. The dance pop song was perfomed by Korean girl group, Apink. It was served as the lead single for their fifth mini album, “Pink Luv”, which was released on November 24th 2014.

About reminiscing the love from the past, that’s what the lyrics of “Luv” are talking about. Well, there are certain conditions that could trigger the memories to appear. It could be the weather, the place we’re at, the people we meet, the occasion, even our own mood; especially when we are exhausted and lonely. Yup, loneliness; that’s the main trigger. “On this unusually tiring and long day, there’s no one by my side. Even just for a moment, I want to lean on someone and cry.” During those loneliest times, the memories appear. Those times when we could holding hands with that person, and all fears just disappeared. Those times when we had that person stood by our side, and nothing else was needed. “In those countless encounters with other people, perhaps I will forget you little by little. However, when I think of that time, it actually still makes me smile. That time when you and I were happy when we face each other. If only you just believed in me, you were my greatest strength in this world, you were.”
As time goes by, the memories might be fading. As we meet other people, probably a new love interest, the memories might be forgotten. However, there are certain conditions that could trigger us to recall. And when that happens, we’re just smiling out of nowhere. For those times when we could see the face of that person, and that made us happy. For those times when that person believed in us, and that was our greatest strength. “Do you remember? Those times that we spent together. Is your heart pounding? Those times when you were my everything. Now, I only think of you once in a while. Can’t we turn back the time? For a while, I can’t believe it, that our story has already passed so long ago.” Somewhere, in the deep of our memories, that person remains and lingers there. As we reminisce those memories, we realize that we long for that person, and that we never forget the love.

Written, composed, and arranged by South Korea’s prominent music producer, Shinsadong Tiger, along with Beom & Nang, “Luv” was an immediate success as soon as it was released. It scored a new record for Apink as it became their first all-kill hits across the real-time music charts, as well as scoring them their first three triple crown wins in television music shows. Well oh well, the girls did very well indeed!

Do you miss me? There’s a longing I have for you. I’m missing you. Somewhere in my memories, you still remain just like this, never forget you.” –Apink, Luv
