“It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there’s something about us I want to say
Cause there’s something between us anyway“
– “Something about us” by Daft Punk
As I listen to this song, I reminisce back to the days when I was in college and somewhat dating a particular person. During that time, I thought he was “the one.” I remember when I listened to this song during that time, I truly thought I wanted to be with him.
Now, as I listen to the song, I realize that I don’t have the same feelings. I try hard to muster up the feelings. Suddenly, I began to realize that if I have to try to muster up old feelings, then he must not be the right one. I also realize that I have never been in love. I have been in love with the moment at that point in time but never truly in love. This realization made me a little sad. Human feelings are so fleeting.
Maybe this is a stupid question: has there been anyone who loved someone regardless of time and separation? Even if you couldn’t be with that person, would that love continue to remain? Maybe this type of love doesn’t exist. Maybe I’ve watched and read too many love stories.
