100 Reasons To Stay Alive

“Reasons to Stay Alive” is indeed a novel written by Matt Haig. It was published in 2015 and is a memoir that explores the author’s personal experiences with depression and anxiety. The book combines Haig’s own journey with mental health issues and insights into how he found reasons to keep living, providing a mix of personal narrative, reflections, and thoughts on mental well-being.

Throughout the book, Matt Haig shares his struggles with mental health and offers a message of hope and resilience. The title suggests that within the challenges and darkness of life, there are reasons to find joy, purpose, and meaning.

It’s important to note that if you or someone you know is struggling with mental health issues, seeking support from mental health professionals, friends, or family is crucial. “Reasons to Stay Alive” is just one person’s perspective, and individual experiences with mental health can vary.

高山低谷 Gou Saan Dai Guk – Mountain And Valley- 林奕匡 – Phil Lam

站在樹林內 就如沒氧氣
standing in the forest, just like no oxygen
jaam joi syu lam noi jau yu mut yeung hei

在夕陽下 寂寥吧 沒權利見你
under the sunset, be lonely, don’t have the rights to see you
Joi jik yeung ha jik liu ba mut kyun lei gin nei

早知高的山低的谷將你我分隔兩地 失去人情味
already knew the mountains and valleys separated you and me into two places, losing the human warmth
Jou ji gou dik saan dei dik kuk jeung nei ngo fan gaak leung dei sat heui yan ching mei

你那貴族遊戲 我的街角遊記
your game of noble, my journey in the corner of the street

Nei fai lok gwo sang wut ngo ping meng heui saang chyun

wanted to be fulfilled, work hard to live, who is afraid of short of breath ?

只適宜滯於山之谷整理我的凌亂
only suitable for staying in valley and to organise my mess
Ji sik yi jai yu saan ji guk jing lei ngo dik ling lyun

渴望大團圓 腳下路程難以削短
wish to have a good ending, (but) the distance under my foot is hard to reduce
Hok mong daai tyun yun geuk ha lou ching naan yi seuk dyun

未見終點 也未見恩典 我與你極遠
not yet see the finish point, not yet see the grace also, i’m extremely far away to you
Mei gin jung dim ya mei gin yan din ngo yu nei gik yun

愈望愈無望 未來沒有我
the more i look the more i feel i have no hopes, the future doesn’t have me
Yut mong yut mou mong mei loi mut yau ngo

在斷崖下 盡頭吧 樂園未有過
under the cliff, there’s the end right, there’s never paradise
Joi dyun ngaai ha jeun tau ba lok yun mei yau gwo

彷彿天一黑天一光揮發了一句再會 只見人下墮
it seems like the time when the sky is dark and when the sky has light, it volatilised a goodbye, only see people falling
Fong fat tin yat haak tin yat gwong fai faat liu yat geui joi wui ji gin yan ha jeui

快慰繼續傳播 你都不慰問我
the pleasure is continue to spread, (but) you didn’t express solicitude to me

你繼續盤旋 我繼續埋藏我愛戀
you continue to hover, i continue to hide my love
Nei gai juk pun syun ngo gai juk maai jong ngo oi lyun

你瞞我瞞 (Lies Between Us) – 陳柏宇 (Jason Chan) – Lyric Cantonese English

約會像是為 分享到飽肚滋味
Dating seems like for sharing the taste of the food
yoek wui zoeng si wai fan hoeng dou baau tou zi mei

有任何難題 卻不提起
But you never mention about any problem
yau yam ho nan tai koek bat tai hei

這若是浪漫 我怎麼覺得就快分離
If this is romance how come I feel like we are going to separate soon

You cried, but the reflection in your eyes was more beautiful

我是誰情人 你始終也是你
Who do I belongs to you are always yourself
ngo si seoi cing yan nei ci zung yaa si nei

微笑靜默互望 笑比哭更可悲
Looking at each other quietly, laughing is more terrible than crying
mei siu zing mak wu mong siu bei huk gang ho bei

就算怎開心皺著眉
You always look sad
zau syun zam hoi sam zau zoek mei

儘管緊緊抱得穩你
Even I only hug you tightly
zeon gun gan gan pou dak wan nei

兩臂 卻分得開我共你
Two arms can separate you and me
loeng bei koek fan dak hoi ngo gung nei


無言的親親親 侵襲我心
Wordless kiss melting my heart

Ragnar Lothbrok Speech To His Daughter Gyda

“Gyda, I have come to say goodbye to you properly.
I have been thinking about you, about when you were small. You could run as swiftly as the wind. You were like quick-silver. But then, before I knew it, you stopped running here and there and everywhere, and you became still.

At 12-years-old, you had the stillnessand the calm of a fine woman. What children you would have produced! What joy that would have brought to all of us.

Dear child, Gyda. You are not gone because you are always in my heart.

They say that a man must love his sons more, but a man can be jealous of his sons, and his daughter can always be the light in his life.

I know very well that you are with the Gods. But I will wait here awhile. And if you want to comeand talk to me, then come and talk, and I will gently stroke your long and beautiful hair once again with my peasant hands.”

— Ragnar Lothbrok, Brother’s War.

Ragnar To Gyda

Cai Hong Tian Tang (彩虹天堂) Lyric – Liu Genghong (Will Liu)

我不知不覺 又徘徊在從前
Wǒ bùzhī bù jué yòu páihuái zài cóngqián
Unconsciously, I have wandered back to the past again

秋風悄悄的呼喚 聽來盡是孤單
Qiūfēng qiāoqiāo de hūhuàn tīng lái jìn shì gūdān
The autumn wind calls softly, filled with loneliness when heard

落葉的期盼 片片左右為難
Luòyè de qī pàn piàn piàn zuǒyòu wéinán
The yearning of falling leaves, every leaf feeling caught in the middle

心走寂寞攀 跟著飄進黑暗
Xīn zǒu jìmò pān gēnzhe piāo jìn hēi’àn
My heart embarks on a lonesome climb, then drifts into darkness

我不聞不問 也許好過一點
Wǒ bù wén bùwèn yěxǔ hǎoguò yīdiǎn
If I don’t show interest in anything, perhaps I would feel better

被遺憾關在房間 掙扎只是拖延
Bèi yíhàn guān zài fángjiān zhēngzhá zhǐshì tuōyán
Locked in the room by regret, struggling is only to delay (what is to happen)

無望的空談 一聲聲的輕嘆
Wúwàng de kōngtán yī shēng shēng de qīng tàn
Empty chatter with no hope, soft sighs one after another

回憶扯不斷 怎麼擺脫糾纏
Huíyì chě bùduàn zěnme bǎituō jiūchán
If memories cannot be torn apart, then how can one escape from entanglement

找不到方向 往彩虹天堂
Zhǎo bù dào fāngxiàng wǎng cǎihóng tiāntáng
Unable to find my way, (I) head towards the rainbow heaven

有你說的愛 在用幸福觸摸懮傷
Yǒu nǐ shuō de ài zài yòng xìngfú chùmō yǒu shāng
There’s the love you speak of that is using happiness to touch sadness

兩個人 相守直到白髮蒼蒼
Liǎng gè rén xiāng shǒu zhídào bái fà cāngcāng
Two people sharing their lives until their hair has turned white

自由的飛翔在燦爛的星光
Zìyóu de fēixiáng zài cànlàn de xīngguāng
Flying freely in the brilliant starlight

找不到方向 往彩虹天堂
Zhǎo bù dào fāngxiàng wǎng cǎihóng tiāntáng
Unable to find my way, (I) head towards the rainbow heaven

有你說的愛 在用幸福觸摸懮傷
Yǒu nǐ shuō de ài zài yòng xìngfú chùmō yǒu shāng
There’s the love you speak of that is using happiness to touch sadness

兩個人 相守直到白髮蒼蒼
Liǎng gè rén xiāng shǒu zhídào bái fà cāngcāng
Two people sharing their lives until their hair has turned white

自由的飛翔在燦爛的星光 有你在我身旁
Zìyóu de fēixiáng zài cànlàn de xīngguāng yǒu nǐ zài wǒ shēn páng
Flying freely in the brilliant starlight, I have you by my side

Red Right Hand Girl Version – PJ Harvey

‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎It’s a song that has fairly humble beginnings. Much of it came from a jam we were working on when we writing songs for our album Let Love In. […] I still find it all mysterious. I don’t want to know the details, and I’d never ask Nick. Sometimes it’s better to think “what the hell’s that all about?” It’s better that it’s unknowable and spooky. The song has its own life, now.

[Verse 1]
Take a little walk to the edge of town
Go across the tracks
Where the viaduct looms
Like a bird of doom
As it shifts and cracks
Where secrets lie in the border fires
In the humming wires
Hey man, you know
You’re never coming back
Past the square, past the bridge
Past the mills, past the stacks
On a gathering storm comes
A tall handsome man
In a dusty black coat
With a red right hand

[Verse 2]
He’ll wrap you in his arms
Tell you that you’ve been a good boy
He’ll rekindle all the dreams
It took you a lifetime to destroy
He’ll reach deep into the hole
Heal your shrinking soul
But there won’t be a single thing that you can do
He’s a god, he’s a man
He’s a ghost, he’s a guru
They’re whispering his name
Through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat
Is a red right hand

[Verse 3]
You don’t have no money?
He’ll get you some
You don’t have no car?
He’ll get you one
You don’t have no self-respect
You feel like an insect
Well don’t you worry buddy
Cause here he comes
Through the ghettos and the barrio
And the Bowery and the slums
A shadow is cast wherever he stands
Stacks of green paper
In his red right hand

[Organ Solo 1]

[Verse 4]
You’ll see him in your nightmares
You’ll see him in your dreams
He’ll appear out of nowhere but
He ain’t what he seems
You’ll see him in your head
On the TV screen
And hey buddy, I’m warning
You to turn it off
He’s a ghost, he’s a god
He’s a man, he’s a guru
You’re one microscopic cog
In his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed
By his red right hand

[Organ Solo 2]

Track #5 from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ eighth studio album Let Love In.

The notion of a Red Right Hand goes back to John Milton’s Paradise Lost where it also plays the role of an undefined threat. There are discussions among scholars whether it concerns the hand of Satan or the punishing hand of God himself.

To back up the lyrics, the whole song has a threatening allure with the organ theme and Cave’s deep ominous voice.

In verses one and two, a tall handsome stranger ‘with a red right hand’ is used to personify an omnipresent danger. In verses three and four it is revealed what this danger actually is. It is the allure (remember that the man is tall and handsome) of material wealth which draws away your focus from more important things like self-respect. The tall handsome man sustains this danger as a ‘catastrophic plan’ in which you (that is the average person) are a ‘microscopic cog’. In this way, the man represents consumer society: something which is very everyday, but in its essence utterly scary and life-crushing.

The song was used as a theme song for the the horror movies Scream 1 & 2 and the soundtrack of 3 still contains tunes that are a reminiscence of this song. It’s also the theme song for the BBC show Peaky Blinders.
