about

During the time of the Khmer Rouge, many people left the city to work in the rice fields. And many lovers were separated at that time. While I was writing this song these images ran through my mind in black and white. Images of a woman standing waiting for her lover, reminiscing of the simple things they had done together. Things like the daily preparation of food. One verse describes making a cat soup for her lover's return. I don't wish to romaticise the killing and cooking of cats. Nowadays people don't do this. But when I was a young girl, near the Cambodian border, it was just the way of life of the time and place.
