Faye Wong
[EMI, September 1997] The most anticipicated album of the 1997 live up to is expectations. Faye's debut album from her new company, simply titled Faye Wong, was supposed to be released way back in August, but it was pushed back by EMI executives fearing the clash with Jacky Cheung's new release, after all he's still the king of commercial hits. But the album deserves the attention that it was getting during the last few months. Marriage has changed Faye's outlook in life. These days whatever she does, she does it with a smile and the album really reflects this. Listening to the album, one can sense her happiness in that lovely voice. This album really shows Faye's sophistication and growth in her music. By completely stripping off any style or techniques she had in singing, Faye has actually created a new style. Her voice is more pure and sweet... This album makes alot of sense as a followup to her last two EPs from songs like "Undercurrent", "Date", etc. The songs are very pleasurable to listen to... and very simple in nature - there's this retro feel that makes the album so great! There's a Chinese Beijing music feel to some of the songs (Dou Wei's influence). Faye is one of those rare and talented artist that can make someone else's song distinguishly hers like with the two CT songs (one done esp. for Faye). In this album, it is Faye Wong being Faye Wong, Faye Wong doing what Faye Wong does best! There are no words to describe it, it just leaves you satisfied - makes you feel like crying because Faye Wong is such a BEAUTIFUL ALBUM!

Translated Lyrics

Anasthaesia

v1
Perfection  What perfection
You're afraid to catch  How can I catch
I want  To do whatever I desire
You don't oppose  Who dares to oppose

chorus
Doesn't matter  Doesn't matter
Come anaesthetize my sober realization
Doesn't matter  Doesn't matter
Come anaesthetize all of my sensations

v2
Absolute joy  Although could bear tragedy
You're not shameful  I do not regret
If  Prosperity is being demolished
Let me have a good sleep  A good sleep

chorus
Doesn't matter  Doesn't matter
Come anaesthetize my sober realization
Doesn't matter  Doesn't matter
Come anaesthetize all of my sensations

You and I must join from separate courses anyway
If everything becomes tasteless
I don't mind quitting in the middle of the course

chorus
Doesn't matter  Doesn't matter
Come anaesthetize my sober realization
Doesn't matter  Doesn't matter
Come anaesthetize all of my sensations

Dar dar dar dar...

v3
Sorrow  Where is sorrow
Not me  How could it be me
Intoxication  I want to be intoxicated
Don't care if that is  A cup of water

                                        [Top][Next]



You're Happy, So I'm Happy (你快樂所以我快樂)

You arched your eyebrows
So I laughed
Your eyes turned red
And my world turned grey
Oh...heaven knows
And it said you're happy so I'm happy
Roses blossomed
What else do I want?
Appreciative too appreciative
Heaven and Earth creations are just as precious
Happiness, anger, sorrow, gladness
There's me to repeat your mistake
Your hair is wet
So I am warm
You felt tired
So I slept
Heaven knows
Not asking why
Peaceful and satisfied....

Bored (悶)

Who said falling in love with someone who doesn't come home,
The only thing you'll end up doing is just silently wait?
Does it mean you don't care who you love?
You also want a secure, steady relationship for eternity?
Oh~woh~ Is there really no other script?
No wonder, promise 'til enternity just so simple
Who said to love someone, you should also love his soul?
Or when others hear otherwise, they find it insincere?

Is it not bothered who you love?
You must also beg for a steady relationship for eternity?
Oh~woh~ I really want to be so naive
Impossible, is there realy no other possibillities?
How can this be?

Ahhh... ahhhh..... aiy...aiy.... I don't want to be secure
Ahhh... ahhhh.....aiy...aiy...I don't want to sacrifice
Who said falling in love with someone who doesn't come home,
The only thing you'll end up doing is just silently wait?
Does it mean you don't care who you love?
You also want a secure, steady relationship for eternity?

Oh~woh~ Is there really no other script?
No wonder, promise 'til eternity just so simple
Who said to love someone, you should also love his soul?
Or when others hear otherwise, they find it insincere?

Is it not bothered who you love?
You must also beg for a steady relationship for eternity?
Oh~woh~ I really want to be so naive
Impossible, is there realy no other possibillities?
How can this be?
Ahhh... ahhhh.....aiy...aiy... I don't want to be secure
Ahhh... ahhhh.....aiy...aiy...Don't expect me to love til I suffer
Ahhh... ahhhh.....aiy...aiy... I'm not afraid of boredom
Everything to be natural...is that possible?

Entertainment Ground

The cigarette is no longer fragrant, how can it be smoked?
The lights are no longer bright, how can I see the photos?
That double bed cannot resolve too many desires

Might as well find a place where I want to go
No need to think about it, a happy place...amusement park

Walking about big streets and small alleys, I can only hear shouting
I raise my head to look at the moon, couldn't find a skylight
Is there a place where I want to go?
No need to wander about aimlessly...a place of amusement

Might as well find a place where I want to go
No need to think about it, a happy place

Listen; an out-of-tune voice
Look; song and dance galore
Come; to heaven and take a look
Come; go crazy, go crazy

Mortal World

The sky may not be beautiful after wind and rain
A sunny sky doesn't necessaryily have a rainbow
So your innocent look doesn't mean you're ignorant

Not all relationships have a beginning and an end
The brink of loneliness may not be filled with dread
But life can never avoid the first pain

Hope your eyes will only see smiles
Hope that every tear you shed will be moving
Hope that your dreams will not be unfulfilled

The mortal world, if it's worth praising
It's because your presence makes it lively
Sky and earth are vast
The world is more somnolent than you think
I don't want to deceive you any longer
Hope you will understand
Hope you will know when to go and when to follow

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



I Don't Wanna Be This Way Either

All of a sudden, without any cause
Should be alright, but not satisfied
Think about your brows and eyes, until goes hazy
Do you know that poisons me
All of a sudden, I need protection
In case the world ends in an instant
If you leave me, I will suffer cruelty
It's not that I don't understand, but I want to clearly see
However that makes your face unexplained
The people who don't care, they still carefully console
However I can't even have one last kiss
I don't want to be like this, going back and forth
Every person will become lonesome more or less
Your distance becomes my sorrow
If I leave you will it help
I don't want to be like this, going up and down
Every relationship will turn out to be lonesome more or less
Looking at my pride becoming my protection
It's my fault how will I ever recieve your protection.

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]




Making A Fuss

I see it come and see it go,
see which story impresses me the most
I sing here and sing there,
sing til the sky turns barren and the earth grows old
And also press this and press that,
see which is the most hustling show
If I am still bored,
bury my head to a good sleep I go

Watch the sun rises and the sun sets,
nothing can be a big-o-no
Then get hurt in spring and rueful in autumn,
much ado about nothing also
Its not that I have no place to go
Oh wo   Oh wo   wo

I see it com and see it go,
see which picture impresses me the most
You and I date here and date there,
date til our faces grow old
If I dont make trouble for myself,
nothing deserves to generate sorrow
You and I love then and love now,
is it just hustling also

Watch the sun rises and the sun sets,
nothing can be a big-o-no
Then get hurt in spring and rueful in autumn,
much ado about nothing also
At least were not hopeless sickos, hopeless sickos
Lets go eat, drink, play, have fun, oh no
This kind of mate for life where do I get to know
Oh wo   Oh wo   wo

Lets all dance; Lets all be cheerful
Oh no  Oh no
Lets all dance; Lets all be cheerful
Oh no   Oh no   Oh no   Oh no

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



Reminiscence (懷念)

I close the room filled with insufficient oxygen
Light a cigarette and reminisce your breathing
Search my brain for unresolved disagreements
Rebuff your questions to the empty air
Putting off every time, a real reunion
I lock myself up, wishing for news of you
Self-contentedly
Rejected charm, doesn't leave a mark
Enjoying my distance from you

Perhaps I like to reminisce you
More than I like seeing you
Perhaps I like to imagine you
More than than I like possessing you

I close the room filled with insufficient oxygen
Light a cigarette and reminisce your breathing
Scatter riddles occasionally about the floor
Rebuff your questions to the empty air
Putting off every time, a real reunion
I lock myself up, wishing for news of you
Going through time and again
Sweetly suspicious
Therefore becoming mysterious
Prolonging your curiosity

Perhaps I like to reminisce you
More than I like seeing you
Perhaps I like to imagine you
Don't need to hold you tight

                                       [Previous][Top][Next]



Into Fire

Never care how many wanted my embrace
Only urgently wishing to possess your smile
Self-esteem thrown to a walls corner; pulled out all the virtue
You still wont look; you still dont want

Everyday theres a dream dying in the heart
Myself screaming loudly to myself
A person too faithful toward feelings is hard to think clearly
So painful that I wish to cry; yet foolishly smile

Love becomes a moth smashing into fire--
Is a type of moral fall
Who would like to torture as enjoyment everyday
However sacrificing for love makes me feel that way
Myself being so proud, so noble

Love becomes a moth smashing into fire--
Is very painful
I only believe that a person can be moved
Somehow why are you not able to love me
Like how deeply I love you so,
why... why...

Cloud's Edge

Letting thoughts go free
Soaring boundlessly
Carrying my happy fantasies
Passing through mountains, brushing past oceans
My world doesn't have boundaries

So much love
Follow a confused path
Looking on, my face fills with dread
True feelings sink in, mingling amongst the sea of people
The heart is weary, yet sorrow never ends

Who will stroll with me to the cloud's edge?
[Let us] settle down somewhere close to the sun
Could block our ears and not listen to the world's noisy goings-on
Want to be truly at ease

Willing to stroll with you to the cloud's edge
The beautiful firmament opens itself to us
Don't let your heart be defiled
Want a kind of unsullied love

                                        [Previous][Top]
