may we still be wating for these

"If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died"

lyrics from Nickelback, 〈If Everyone Cared〉

---

Sometime, the translation of the artists really matters. I never heard of the songs from Nickelback until now, and it's hard not to having associate Nickelback with 50 cent when people heard them from the Chinese titles. Whatever, we all know we can read a lot of references at the wikipedia, and the more we have read, the less we realized who we are.

We know ourselves by the people around us, the families, the friends, and more. As the script from the movie《Batman Begins》: "It's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you." We keep learning so hard in our whole life time, staying hungry for the knowledge and wisdom. In the same time, getting lost in the forest sounds like the road we must pass through, and we stay steady, ready for the trip and finally we left. We pretend we're lost and feel not so badly to make our shame reasonable to turn into the great sacrifice.

I don't know what will the others think of these sentences. I'm just trying to tell, how humor I feel when "nobody lied" and "nobody died" shouted out the same fact into my mind in the same time: May we still be waiting for the days that'll never come.

I lied to you all the time, honestly.
