Home from Pre-U Sem

It seems that the song ‘take-away’ from the 2007 Pre-University Seminar experience that everyone unanimously agreed is If We Hold On Together, by Diana Ross.

True enough, this is the song played at the Closing Ceremony, and all the participants held each others arms and sang to it. It really expressed our unwillingness to part each other (the emo-ness of everything), having bonded well with the SG (Seminar Group) we were in for 5 days. From the strangers we were from different JCs-CIs/Polys/IP Schools, to close mates.

The “joy of home-coming” (in fact, college-coming, since I had college day to attend!) versus the emotional rush of leaving your SG mates while the bonds of friendships are still being made. [SG27 … you guys rock on! Coolest bunch of peeps I ever met]

From another perspective, one song that caught my attention was ‘Home’ by Chris Daughtry.

The lyrics goes …

I’m staring out into the night
And trying to hide the pain
I’m going to the place where love
can feel but they dont live the cost of fame
In pain it feels a different kind of pain
I’m going home to the place where I belong
where your love has always been enough for me
I’m running from you know I think you got me all wrong
I don’t regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old
So I’m going home
The miles are getting longer it seems
The closer I get to you…. babe
And I’ve always been the best man and friend for you
To love and make true and I dont know why
You always seem to give me another try
I’m going home
To the place where I belong
Where your love has always been good enough for me
I’m running from you know I think you got me all wrong
I don’t regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old
Be careful what you wish for
cause you just might get it all

you just might get it all and then some you dont want
be careful what you wish for cause you just might get it all
You just might get it all
I’m going home to the place where I belong
Where your love has always been enough for me
And I’m running from.. you know I think you got me all wrong
I don’t regret this life I chose for me’
But these places and these faces are getting old
But these places and these faces are getting old
I’m going home
I’m going home

And before going home, we took some pictures!
