Nine Million Bicycles

10 years ago today, I liked this song very much. Today, I’ve just listened to it again and had a different viewpoint. As I no longer believe in forever love (I still believe in love though), I think this song is kind of naive and deceived. However, the melody and Katie’s voice still sound great.

“There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That’s a fact, it’s a thing we can’t deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die.”
