Singer-songwriter Waa Wei is a woman of many talents. She recently posted a short story on her Facebook page, and it was so interesting that I felt I should share it with you guys! Artists such as Waa show us that Artists are not just objects, but truly Artists in the true sense of meaning. They are not entertainment figures for us to mock by following their exploits as published by the latest Gossip magazines or newspapers, but are people who make meaning from all types of media; be it music, text or visual. But I digress. Hope you guys enjoy reading Waa's story too, and hopefully we can see more storytimes coming up in the future too!
In that moment, she opened her eyes. The corners of them were not filled with tears, but hinted at a desire to wipe away the tears streaming down her face in the dream. It could be because their separation was premature; the shock of realisation could only be expressed and comforted in the work of dreams. Everything requires you to find the answer, actually whatever the answer may be, after revealing the truth it all just turns out to be a facade that you've tricked yourself into believing.
The apartment you live in suddenly has another room, another big balcony and also another girl. I walk into the toilet with a sense of familiarity, wanting to examine whether my teeth are still there; the scent of her shampoo assaisl my nostrils and evidences her place here. Head drooped, I pretended nothing had happened and made to leave, but why did she smile at me curiously while staring at me? Your back to me; before I left I still turned back to hug you, and even kissed your arms.
I hope to never dream of you again, when I wake all I'm left with is regret I can't bear.
I hope to still be able to dream of you, fervently wishing we are still well in our embrace.
"Don't say, Don't Say, Don't Say, As long as you're holding me, holding me, holding me..."
Unsure as to whether you are also thinking of me when I'm thinking of you,
But what is for certain is that with someone by your side accompanying you, you won't be afraid of loneliness anymore.
Not only has Amei been busy with her "Utopia" concert series, it turns out that she's been working extra hard for the release of her upcoming album too! Which will be released on the same day of her first concert at Taipei Arena. The last time Amit was introduced was six years ago, and Amei's latest press release states that Amei cleverly left a hint for her fans in her "Faces of Paranoia" album which said "AMIT COMING SOON", a creative yet exciting surprise for her fans to know that they would be hearing new works from Amei(oops, sorry Amit) sometime soon.
Seeing as the last surfacing of Amit garnered Amei 6 Golden melody awards in 2009, and based on Amei's strict and high expectations for each and every element of here album, this may possibly be one of the most anticipated albums of the year. She's already released her first single for the album called "不睡"(don't sleep) which is reportedly written by Sandee Chen. More information about Amei's album is on the way, so keep your eyes peeled for more from Asian Pop Weekly!
Amei/Amit's first Single: <不睡bu shui>/Don't sleep
Second Single + official mv for <freakshow>
Amit's album <Amit 2> will be released on the 4th of April, on the same day of Amei's opening date for her "Utopia" tour.
