Summer is a rainy season in Hong Kong. The best way to spend your rainy days is to stay at home and listen to acoustic tunes.
The melody played with piano is so heart-touching, Heize’s warm and sentimental tones go through listeners’ minds and deep inside their memories. Although the lyrics are describing the moment of parting, the song’s tempo is neither too slow nor too dark. Intermittent drum beats resemble the sounds of raindrops on window. Simply turn your headphone’s volume louder and clear your emotion and thoughts.
