A song inspired by my favourite film, Lost in Translation. I think the relationship and connection between Bob and Charlotte is just amazing.


Charlotte: I just don't know what I'm supposed to be, you know? I tried being a writer but I hate what I right, and, I tried taking pictures but they're so mediocre. You know, every girl goes through a photography phase, you know like horses? You know, take dumb pictures of your feet?

Bob: You'll figure that out, I'm not worried about you. Keep writing?

Charlotte: But I'm so mean.

Bob: Means OK.

Charlotte: What about marriage? Does that get easier?

Bob: That's hard. We used to have a lot of fun. Liddy would come with me when I made the movies and we would laugh about it all. Now she doesn't want to leave the kids and she doesn't need me to be there. The kids miss me, but they're fine. And it gets a whole lot more complicated when you have kids.

Charlotte: Yeah. It's scary.

Bob: It's the most terrifying day of your life the day the first one is born.
Charlotte: Yeah, No one ever tells you that.
Bob: Your life, as you know it, is gone. Never to return. But they learn how to walk and they learn how to talk, and you want to be with them and they turn out to be the most delightful people you'll ever meet in your life.

Charlotte: Hmm.
