Time Machine 时光机

Everyone knows Doraemon 小叮当 ドラえもん.

He is the dream to many, so am I and my little cutie too. Imagine you have no fear to fight against any challenges 'cause Doraemon is with you. And you wouldn't be missing any enchanting moments in life, as long as you trail out and jump into the drawer, get onto the time machine to travel back to the seconds you missed.

Talk about time machine. When I was kid, I recalled I did open a drawer hoping to see a time machine, the drawer eventually collapsed after I stepped on it. Silly me. Shhh~ don't tell my mom, she thought the drawer was overloaded with clothes. :") The wardrobe had been discarded, else I could take a photo to show the damaged drawer. Hehe...

But in life, frankly, have you ever thought of a time machine? For an event you arrived late, for a moment you slipped, for someone you missed, for a promise that wasn't realized or for some words that you never spoke up? How nice to have a time machine, bring you back to the very moment to correct whatever needs to be fixed; to arrive on time, to seize the precious moment, to hold strong and not let go someone, to deliver a promise or to express your feeling. Life would be so good.

Perhaps this lyric depicts the aesthetic landscape of the dream above...

时光机
词:方文山 曲:周杰伦
墙角迎风的雏菊 茉莉花开的香气 闭上眼回到过去
划分界限的座椅 下课就靠在一起 我就是离不开你
一路乘着溜滑梯 我们说好走到底 以为从此就分离
用黑板上的日期 倒数找你
慢慢清晰 原来思念你 是加了糖 的消息
我用铅笔 画得很仔细 素描那年 天气
蝉鸣的夏季 我想遇见你
那童年的希望是 一台 时光机
我可以一路开心到底 都不换气
戴竹蜻蜓 穿过那森林
打开了任意门找到你 一起旅行
那童年的希望是 一台 时光机
你我翻滚过的榻榻米 味道熟悉
所有回忆 在小叮当口袋里
一起荡秋千的默契 在风中持续着甜蜜
有些话从来不急 一直都放在心底
想要将你看仔细 但错身而过的你 已经离去
慢慢清晰 原来思念你 是加了糖 的消息
我用铅笔 画得很仔细 素描那天 天气
蝉鸣的夏季 我想遇见你
那童年的希望是 一台 时光机
我可以一路开心到底 都不换气
戴竹蜻蜓 穿过那森林
打开了任意门找到你 一起旅行
那童年的希望是 一台 时光机
你我翻滚过的榻榻米 味道熟悉
所有回忆 在小叮当口袋里
一起荡秋千的默契 在风中持续着甜蜜
那童年的希望是 一台 时光机
我可以一路开心到底 都不换气
戴竹蜻蜓 穿过那森林
打开了任意门找到你 一起旅行
那童年的希望是 一台 时光机
你我翻滚过的榻榻米 味道熟悉
所有回忆 在小叮当口袋里
一起荡秋千的默契 在风中持续着甜蜜
oh~ 持续着甜蜜

It's a new song by Jay Chou. I have his latest album for quite some time but only had time to enjoy it during last holiday. This wasn't the first song in the album that I liked, it only endeared me after I listened carefully to its lyric and the dream seemed to come live with the MV...


A Doraemon MV directed by Jay himself. The MV flourishes the lyric and brings life to the dream.

Maybe Jay shared the same dream and you might feel the same if you were in the same generation. So am I.

We can replay the MV, we can recall the memories, we can repeat the same dream but we can't take two in life. No time machine in reality. Live life to the fullest with no regrets.
