    "Wet dog perfume" - dialed up the podcast "Tales to terrify" on my iPhone while walking Katalin this evening around midnight and this story came on.

    I find it sweet yet abit disturbing...reminds me somehow of these lyrics - it's from a song called "Sleeping beauty" in Chinese so excuse my rough translation:

    I see you again at midnight, thru the mist
    I pass a intoxicating vision of spirit...
    There's no way to see you again, once I wake
    everything goes wrong, I find our ocean of passion to
    have frozen over...
    夜半再相見 迷霧裡繾綣
長夜夢中有過 
    動魄迷人片段
沒法再相見 
    一醒了完全逆轉
就似夢裡面 熾熱愛海變冰川

    Why would I fear loneliness? The fairytale
    princess has been living a lie for a 100 years,
    All I can say is pining for you is just expecting nothing...
    沉睡中的主角 怎會怕寂寞
童話中的主角 
    一百年躺臥
埋在心底的愛慕 
    能否跟你透露
期待你 只是 虛無

    I would totally write a song about this story though - if I knew how LOL

    I love the poetry of "Sleeping Beauty," or at least your translation. Don't apologize for that translation! It's a difficult enough task, and to do it and retain the rhythm and . . . poetry of it!

    I'd love to hear it, if there's a link to an audio/video of it.

    Thanks alot Renee! Yeah it is difficult - loses abit of it's feeling in English but I tried to retain as much of it's original essence as possible. Don't think you'll like the song though - it's very pop/mainstream. It's lyrics are really sweet and deep though.

    In dreams, a kiss is enough to stir up my heart;
    In waking, it's a pity we can't be together.
    Indulging in a moment of contact...that in another will vanish...
    Already makes me happy....

    夢內傾心一吻就算心動
    現實可惜不配與你相擁
    沉溺 於一刻的接觸
    哪管即將結束 已經滿足

    It's strange, but the quality of her voice somehow gets . . . something . . . across and gave me goosebumps for a second :)
