we're always sitting in fields of flowers.

she drove me to school in that van. it didn't have a cd player, so she just put the family boom box in between the driver and passenger's seat. she didn't always play vietnamese music, but when she did, i always asked her to play this one song. i never knew the name of it, but i knew what it sounded like. and i knew how to sing along. it was the only vietnamese song i knew by heart. i don't know what the lyrics mean or why i loved it so much. the beginning of the song starts out with sounds of rain falling and i remember the cd cover, with the singer standing underneath an umbrella. i think her name was khanh ha, but maybe not. i'm too embarrassed to ask her what it was, but when i get home, i know i'd be able to find the cd sitting in our living room entertainment center.
