i've always been a fan of 'closing time' by semisonic, seems to sum up every sad farewell!

Hi there,

For those who likes to discover the beauty of song lyrics: I would recommend you to learn chinese first...i am not biased here... but I learn English, Malay, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien and French as well...but you'll find chinese lyrics is really beautiful , sort of introvert -beauty and it's completely different to English lyric...english is more extrovert; french is romantic language as its pronunciation is smooth and i like the sound of errr...

If you understand, you'll definitely fall in love with it because chinese text uses the shortest text to express complicated feelings with ryhmes and proverbs within...that's why the Chinese ancestral philosophical poets Lao Tze and Kong Tze created countless of poems where you can sing with them or recite them...it's up to your personal style...they created these in the condition of getting drunken...amazing right?

Sounds complex rather than simple to me

That's a great song! I've always liked the line "every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."

Cheers,
