The song I posted earlier “Tears and Rain” is, IMHO, the best song from James Blunt‘s debut album, Back to Bedlam. The lyric is deep and it touched my heart in a special way the very first time I heard it.
But I have to admit I did not know who Dorian Gray was or was referring to, so I googled it… Dorian Gray is a character from the book The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. There are too many interesting and thought-provoking dialogs between the characters in the book, so I’m just going to share one of the more famous with you:
“The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful.”
