It’s much more than just the sound why I made the choice of this as the song of the week. A beautiful C-pop song by the Singaporean artist Jasmine Sokko. As for the subject, that is the main part why I love this song. It’s a known fact about me that I am not great at socializing. I tend to choose specific people I trust and want to talk with. If I didn’t do that… well, that’s actually voiced by the song, I get tired. Like Jasmine Sokko, I am an introvert, and there are so many more people like we are. Some people might love this song for the sound, some for the lyrics, and some may dislike this song. However, I simply can’t deny that the song hits a feeling of familiarity and I like that most of all.

Lyrics

I’m on my own in the corner with these people I don’t know somehow
It’s like a heavy situation, I can’t drink my way out of it
Now these ice ain’t breaking so it’s melting in my drink
Where the taste is failing like your insincerity
Lately I just feel so tired, not because of my sleep
I don’t like nobody and nobody likes me
I’m tired of the peacock speech
I don’t like nobody and nobody likes me
I’m tired, not because of my sleep
I don’t think I’m ready for the cliché speech
I’m tired, but I can’t explain
Now people walk in and out anytime as if I’m a door
It’s like we’re making all these strangers out of friends and maybe more, yeah, yeah
Now these ice ain’t breaking so it’s melting in my drink
Lately I just feel so tired, not because of my sleep
I don’t like nobody and nobody likes me
I’m tired of the peacock speech
I don’t like nobody and nobody likes me
I’m tired, not because of my sleep
I don’t think I’m ready for the cliché speech
I’m tired, but I can’t explain
Now these ice ain’t breaking so it’s melting in my drink
Where the taste is failing like your insincerity
Lately I just feel so tired, not because of my sleep
I don’t like nobody and nobody likes me
I’m tired of the peacock speech
I don’t like nobody and nobody likes me
I’m tired, not because of my sleep
I don’t think I’m ready for the cliché speech
I’m tired, but I can’t explain
