Memories To Unite


“There’s a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain

When I believed in forever, and everything would stay the same

Now my heart feel like December when somebody say your name

‘Cause I can’t reach out to call you, but I know I will one day, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes

Everybody hurts someday, aye aye

But everything gon’ be alright

Go and raise a glass and say, aye

Here’s to the ones that we got

Cheers to the wish you were here, but you’re not

‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories

Of everything we’ve been through

Toast to the ones here today

Toast to the ones that we lost on the way

‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories

And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

There’s a time that I remember when I never felt so lost

When I felt all of the hatred was too powerful to stop (ooh, yeah)

Now my heart feel like an ember and it’s lighting up the dark

I’ll carry these torches for ya that you know I’ll never drop, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes

Everybody hurts someday, aye aye

But everything gon’ be alright

Go and raise a glass and say, aye”

The above is part of the lyrics of a touching song (called “Memories”) by the popular group Maroon 5. The song really moved my heart as it’s one that is written for everyone who has lost loved ones and are still dealing with grief. The lead singer Adam Levine explained that the song is also for him to deal with the recent lost of his manager, who was like a brother to him. He added that with the world seemingly more chaotic than before especially with so much anger and hatred going around, he wanted people to have some common ground instead of fighting it. Hence the song was also about bringing people together.

I truly admire people like the aforesaid singer who uses his talent to unite the world. And so like him, I dedicate this blogpost to all the people whom we have loved and lost as well as to honour those who are still with us.
