Lyrics: Clay Figure (Inside Each Other) original tune to a lovely old Chinese poem originally uploaded and translated into English by Hongkong007A.

So much love, you and I, And it burns like a fire.

The sea may dry, rock may crack, But my love will never die.
I will take, this lump of clay To make a figure of you.
It leaves me with your smiling face That helps remind me of you,
I mould another, figure of you So we are side by side for all time.
I take both figures,and smash them all to pieces Mix them with water,to mould a figure of you.
From now on I can say I am in your clay,You are inside mine.
The sea may dry, rock may crack,But my love will never die.


History About this song/poem (original message from youtube frined "hongkong007A")
"About this song!
the song I am singing is very old Chinese love poem comes from Yu Dynasty and Original this poem written by a lady to his husband!I think is cool song with nice meaning which we can use for relationship/friendship and very inspirational for the East and West Multicultural exchange and so on!only is pity,I can't singing in English:(
But I try to translate this song into English! I wish if some friend on Youtube can singing this song in English! that's will be so so awesome and fun! any one of my friend would like to try out?! here is the song"~~~April 08, 2008~~~

"So much love,You and I,
That it,burns like a fire.
The sea may dry out;
The solid rock may be rotten,
but my love will never die!

In which I bake a lump of clay,
molded into a figure of you,
Leaves behind your smiling face for me to review.
And I molded into figure of mine,
we are next to each other,side by side .

Then I take both of figures
And break them into pieces,
And mix the pieces with water,
Mold again a figure of you and I
from now I can say that:
I am in your clay.
you are inside mine "

(view "Big-5 Traditional Chinese" Fonts)

(歌詞) 你儂我儂 忒煞情多,情多處 熱如火﹐ 滄海可枯 堅石可爛,此愛此情永遠不變﹐ 把一塊泥 捻一個你,留下笑容 使我長憶﹐ 再用一塊 塑一個我,常陪君旁 永伴君側﹐ 將咱兩個 一起打破﹐再將你我 用水調和﹐ 重新和泥 重新再做﹐再捻一個你 再塑一個我﹐ 從今以后 我可以說﹐我泥中有你 你泥中有我。 

本歌是來自于元代管道升寫給丈夫趙孟俯一首名為《我儂詩》: 你儂我儂,忒煞多情 ,情多處,熱似火。把一塊泥,捻一個你,塑一個我,將咱們 兩個一齊打破,用水調和,再 捏一個你,在塑一個我,我中有你,你中有我 。我 与你生同一個衾,死同一個槨。

Wow! This would make a wonderful wedding song.
The image of love and commitment -- of two lives becoming so totally unified is wonderful. The thought of the love being stronger and longer lasting than the ocean or solid rock -- is also compelling.Add your strong voice, and I was stunned. Thank you. I have to share this with stef -- livingpassion. She'll love it.-dan'l

Comments by Joanna4real
A fact of being unique is the most important to me and your version is unique...that's why keep doing what you do no matter what other people say:))

Comments by TommyAndreStrand

I had a lot of really positive impressions watching this video!First of, your guitar is beautiful rugged looking, which goes well with your style man. I really like it. I bet you're a cool dude to hang and jam with!

Also, having your shoulders up clouded in black like that really set the mood suiting for your interpretation.

Lastly, your voice is awesomely cool. If you worked on hitting the notes on this song more then this would be perfect! =) Keep up the fun man.

I got sent this way by Jesse. I like the way ya did this one! I can see why he wanted you to do this one. You give it an energy and care that brings out the better parts of this song.I'd like to hear a bassist thumping away and a drummer thrashing away behind you. Your abilities would get them playing better and it'd be even more somethin' to hear! Thanks for your version! Best O' to ya!
