Imagine Me Imagine You

Sometimes, there are things that have the ability to take me down the memory lane somehow. It could be some moment that triggers me to reminisce some certain similar –or even the opposite– moments in the past. It could be some places. It could be the ambience, nuance, or atmosphere. It could be the people. It could be the conversation. In times like that, somehow I feel solemn and peace. Somehow I feel serene. Whether it’s good time or bad time, it’s always nice to remember them in a particular way in the future. Whether it’s hard time or easy time, it’s always heartwarming to reminisce them in a certain way in the future. And in times like that I often wonder, would things be different now if I made a different choice back then? But then I realize, old times are great old times. And I have no regret upon all choices I’ve made in the past. Therefore I can remember them and cherish them peacefully like this. It feels like daydreaming. And all things that have passed now only seem like a dream I had long ago. And here is the beauty of life.

“When the sunshine’s bright till the end of the day. I remember you and I were so excited and proud.” –Jieun Lim, Imagine

“Imagine” is a song performed by Korean singer, Im Ji Eun, or famously known as her stage name, Jieun Lim. This piano ballad track was served as the soundtrack for jtbc drama series, “The Package”, and was released on November 3rd 2017 as a part of “The Package OST Part 5” single album. Later, the song became a part of “The Package Special OST” album which was released on November 17th 2017. “Imagine” was written by Jieun Lim herself, with composition and arrangement by Gaemi. I was surprised to know that the lyrics were so short. However, it suited well with the ambience of the song; soothing, peaceful, heartwarming, and serene. Moreover, the whole song suited well with France as the main location setting of the drama series.

Certain kind of moment, place, ambience, nuance, atmosphere, sound, people, conversation, and many more can trigger some memories of our younger days. And suddenly, we find ourselves floating in the sea of memories of those times when we were so excited and proud and feeling like there were us against the world. Those were times when the sunshine was bright and we were feeling like there was no tomorrow. Those were times when days felt longer than the nights and we were feeling like there was nothing worse could happen in the future. And after all that we’ve been through, now we’ve come to this point as we’re looking back at those memories. “When the sunshine’s bright till the end of the day, I remember you and I were so excited and proud. Imagine me, imagine you.” As we’re walking down the memory lane, we find ourselves feeling peace and serene. It was all in the past but we’re grateful for it. It was all had passed but we don’t have any lingering regret. It fills our imagination as we feel blessed upon it.
Whenever life seems harder than ever, whenever we feel stuck up in our daily routines, whenever we feel stressed out from work or study, whenever the struggles feel more difficult than ever, have you ever decided to take a rest for a second, just to sit back and wonder about those days you’ve lived up until this point? Sometimes it’s good to reminisce. It makes us able to remember who we are and what’s shaping us until this moment. It will remind us on the reason of our existence and the purpose of our life. It can give us time to take a breath, gather our strength, and continue living the life to the fullest. Yes, we’ve come this far. Our past choices have brought us up until this far. And there are still so much more to go. It is not the world that has changed; it is how we perceive the world that has evolved as we grow up. Though the sunshine may seem to be dimmer, it is actually our perspective upon the world that is progressing. Hence, don’t step back. Hence, march forward. Life goes on and we’re growing through what we go through.

“Imagine me, imagine you.” –Jieun Lim, Imagine





When the sunshine’s bright till the end of the day
I remember you and I were so excited and proud
Imagine me, imagine you, imagine me, imagine you

When the sunshine’s bright till the end of the day
I remember you and I were so excited and proud
Imagine me, imagine you, imagine me, imagine you
