On Repeat: Cross My Mind by Twin Forks

Watching Korean Dramas (and Taiwanese too, well at least “some” Taiwanese drama that includes Aaron Yan) is not just all about the dramas; most of the time or always, it’s also about the OST. The OST keeps the dramas alive, more addicting and most of the time as is the case with me, I get attached to the songs more than the drama itself that I find myself listening to it on repeat just to listen to those significant lyrics, feel those particular emotions and be lost in that very moment.

The song that I’m currently listening to on repeat is Cross My Mind by Twin Forks, it’s off the OST of It’s Okay, That’s Love, a drama I am currently watching, well obsessing is the proper word; I can’t have enough of it. The same goes to the song, which is the reason of course why it’s on repeat. You may ask what the charm of this particular song is and how ironic is it that I came across an awesome English song while watching a Korean drama? Well, I say the possibility is there and chingudeul, possibility is endless. The charm of this particular song doesn’t end with the melody which is alive and catchy, its charm, for me lays on its lyrics that seem to be the current story of my life, or so I believe. This is why:

Girl, it’s really good to see you come around.
I know you’ve been lost, I’m glad you got found,
‘Cause I’ve been a little lost myself.

Sometimes, it happens that we meet someone from our past, someone you have completely assumed that like you, has been lost after the great event of facing the real world, or taking on the grown up pants. And it makes you feel good and nostalgic at the same time.

Found an old picture of you on my phone.
Had a new feeling, now I won’t let go
Until I can, I can tell you myself.

Otherwise you see something to remind you of those times, of those words that you have failed to say or express because let’s face it, sometimes sincerity makes you all shy because you’re afraid to show your cheesy side that you feel they won’t get but in fact they would but you didn’t bother to cross the bridge that’s why you never found out.

Why don’t you stay for a while?
It’s been too long since I’ve smiled.
There’s too few people I trust.
I won’t ask you for too much,
Good conversation and such,
And if I’m being honest…

People come and go in our lives; some will stay, some just passing by. But with all these people who came and gone, a few will completely get you, your heart and your trust and it won’t matter if they give you nothing but their understanding, to you who’s being understood and cared for, it’s worth all the gold you can think of possessing in this lifetime and more.

From time to time
You cross my mind.
Good company
Is hard to find.
From time to time
You cross my mind.
So stay with me,
Just for a night. (You cross my mind…)

And in time, as it is inevitable for people to part ways, memories made keep things alive, and sometimes, somehow fans the longing and makes you wish that someday in the near future, your paths may cross again, or for me, I wish that December comes faster.

That’s what is currently on repeat, matching my longing for tangible sincere and true company. Give it a listen, it might mean differently. After all, we each listen to the same song but we each see a different picture of what we are listening to. Don’t you think so, chingudeul?
