Though we are apart
It has been a new wave of migration in Hong Kong since 2020. This project aims to address people’s feeling toward separation from their families. By sharing my thoughts and feelings through lyrics, people can hopefully relax and soothe their anxiety.
This song describes the feeling of those who left their beloved. It was inspired by the phrase of ‘Lonely Christmas’. I then started imaging myself being alone in another country where I am not familiar with. In the state of loneliness, even the glittering snow and the Christmas vibe cannot bring me any joy. I wrote up this Christmas song about someone who left his motherland for the first time and not accompanies by his beloved during the Christmas time. The happy vibe of Christmas creates a contrast with his sadness.
