Life in Mono

Great Expectations, with Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow, 1998, I still remember.  I was in my last year of junior high.  Rented the VCD (yes, 1998 was the VCD era) without my parents' acknowledgement.  Well, until daddy found out, it was rated PG-13, got shut down, but I still managed to finish the movie when daddy was not around.  That was how memorable this movie is, not the PG-13 part, but I personally think that's the best of both Ethan and Gwyneth, as of today.

Life in mono, one of the movie's feature soundtrack, is actually the most memorable part, at least to me.  It expresses a lot of feelings, both the melody and lyrics.  Recently my sister re-watched the movie again, so we listen to this song, again and again.
The stranger sang a theme, from someone else's dream
The leaves began to fall, and no one spoke at all
But I can't seem to recall, when you came along

Ingenue, I just don't know what to do

The tree-lined avenue, begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets, in tea and cigarettes
But I can't seem to forget, when you came along
There are many interpretations regarding the lyrics.  I buy this one more, it's about meeting this person, for a short period of time, and we were left with a feeling that we don't even know when it started yet we couldn't forget.  Well, that is the hardest part, to forget.
