Once Upon A Song
Sometimes, it's not the song that makes you emotional, it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.
This hub was inspired by Carol who wrote the question “What song brings back special memories?”
I guess the song would be “Where Are You Now” by Honor Society.
The first time I heard this song, I was on a bus, alone, and reminiscing my life when things are just plain simple. Tears fell on my eyes as I listened to this song which brought a thousand memories on my mind. It is quite sad to think of those days gone by.
It’s been years since we graduated from college and the thoughts about the friends I left way back home was very haunting to tears. From first grade until high school, until we choose our own path to college, I treasured every memory with my friends who are always been there to support me. From skipping classes to crushes and from cheating on exams and projects, we thought we’ll never be apart.
But then, people have to change. It’s sad but that’s the way it is. We have to move on, follow our own path, reach for the stars and be successful in any decision we have to take. We have to say goodbye but I know that someday, we might say have to say hello again.
The first line of the song reminds me of my teachers. Some are like “nightmares” while others are "angels".
The terror teachers always have the most votes in the play “Remember When?” This is a reunion game we always play when we looked back on our school days memories and have a laugh on what we did way back then.
The song also reminds me of the friends I lost track of; the classmates I never seen after graduation and of people who just silently walked out of your life just like that and of course who would forget our first love and first crush?
And the last but not the least, our favorite bands, A1 and Westlife, the sing along and the late night tv concerts? Oh I miss those things.
I think the song is fantastic – so many memories to form on its sweet melodies and lines. Oh how I love to go back to the time when we still had each other and we think the world is just as simple as crayolas on a white paper ready to color the sheet.
I love to go back to the time when we always see smiles on our faces as we hug each other goodbye after the end of the day and hoping to see each other again tomorrow.
But so much had changed. Oh the time flew so fast and no matter what we’ll do, we are just moving forward and not backward. But memories will remain... forever.
To all my friends who once colored my memories, where are you now?
But if you want to leave, you can. I'll remember you though. I remember everyone that leaves. - Lilo and Stitch
