Day8:

GEM is one of if not my favourite artist out there and a thing I really love are the lyrics of her songs. Thought I’d share some the lyrics of blindspot (盲点) which from what I understand, was written for her parents as a reminder to myself to love and cherish them while they are still around. The Chinese lyrics hit harder but here’s a translated version taken from musixmatch that I edited slightly.

“No matter how far ahead I set my sight, there’s always been a blindspot
I did not notice that you have been by my side all along
Success is just at the corner, but all that’s just momentary
But I just hate that it took me so long to realize
That love has always been in right front of me

I forgot to hold up an umbrella for you when it rained
I forgot to ask about your birthday wishes

The countless bills you have settled for me
The countless meals you have made, that I didn’t come back for

From the beginning there has been a blindspot that I’ve never noticed
You’ve always been by my side
And I hate that it took me so long to realize
That love has always been right in front of me”

Love,
