In My Place ; What Would You Do?

The first time I officially talked to Piggy was at the JJ Anniversary party at The Pavilion. Prior to that, I had actually noticed her before during a few of our Rueda sessions in Union. Initially have the impression that she doesn't really talk much and look a bit blur blur at times.

Then at the Pavilion, we were doing Rueda as usual, and the caller shouted Setenta. My parter happen to be Piggy, but we din manage to execute the Setenta. So after the Rueda finish, I went up to her and volunteer to teach her Setenta. After 1 demo, I asked her if she got it.

"Orrhhh !! zhe me rong yi !!" was her reply.

This reply caught me by surprise, and it changed the image that I have of her. She said it so lively and happily; that my impression of her as a kind of shy and reserved type of gal was shattered. So I was caught at a lost of what to say, before I finally utter some reply:

"Ni zhe me cong ming, zao dian shuo ma!"

And so it started from there. Towards the end of the nite, we were seating beside each other and resting, waiting for the event to end. She just started talking, abt her driving test, her sch stuffs, whatever topic that surface. It's been some time since I know a gal who is so easy to talk.

As time goes, I think I found a gal who is a perfect complement to myself. I don't usually talk much, abt in-depth stuffs i mean. If u realise my conversations are usually superficial, I keep my tots to myself. Someone who will invoke me to talk, someone whom I'm truely at ease with when I'm with her, someone who laughs at what I say, regardless of whether it's funny or not. Isn't this reminiscent of someone? The last Min who is so dear to me.

For a while, I began to see light in Lewis' theory. The laws of natural progression finally won one over the laws of cai selection. She's special to me. But I have to let her go. Because she's not mine.

In my place, what would you do?

In My Place

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah

I was lost, I was lost
Crossed lines I shouldn't have crossed
I was lost, oh yeah

Yeah, how long must you wait for him
Yeah, how long must you pay for him
Yeah, how long must you wait for him

I was scared, I was scared
Tired and underprepared
But I'll wait for you

If you go, if you go
Leave me down here on my own
Then I'll wait for you

Yeah, how long must you wait for him
Yeah, how long must you pay for him
Yeah, how long must you wait for him

Please, please, please
Come back and sing to me
To me, me

Come on and sing it out, now, now
Come on and sing it out, to me, me
Come back and sing it

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah, oh yeah...
