04:32
as people have walked up to me this week
105
257000
2000
这周内当人们一次次走向我,
04:34
simply只是 because of what I'm wearing穿着,
106
259000

04:49
is that it's okay to let go.
113
274000
3000
放手是可以的。
04:52
I don't need to get emotionally感情上 attached to these things
114
277000
2000
我不需要对东西眷恋,
04:54
because around the corner,
115
279000
2000
