All of us have been in that tough spot where things aren't going as planned, and this is a song which I feels really reflects the human mindset within that condition. With lyrics by Xiao Han and a melody written by Tanya Chua, this song captures perfectly a situation where you've got to let go of a person that you love in order for them to truly be free and find happiness, be it with you, or someone who you know will be much better for them than yourself. It's a painful choice to make, but amidst the bittersweet heartbreak that this song offers, threaded throughout skilfully is this feeling of comfort, safety, like the ray of hope at the end of the tunnel. So no matter how tough the going gets, you've just got to know that happiness IS coming. A truly beautiful song, which Jia Jia really does well in. Usually Tanya writes really beautiful songs for others, but I generally get the feeling that it would be better sung by Tanya herself, which really defeats the purpose of giving them that song in the first place.
But Jia Jia really owns this song, and even gives it a different flavour from what I would expect from Tanya's version, removing the sultry grit of Tanya's timbre and replacing it with her husky, yet girlish vocals. So really, this song is a feat in all aspects; and I really do recommend it to those of you who are maybe feeling a little down in the dumps, or just looking for some good relaxing music!
