Wishing We Last Forever
[Cinepoly/Universal, June 1999] Ok! Another new compilation released earlier this month from Cinepoly. This album has old commercial songs and newer, more alternative songs too. This is a two cd set that contains 32 songs total. I don't think anyone wants it, unless you don't have any other compilation or don't have all of Faye's albums.

Translated Lyrics


Heard that 1999 will be end of the world
By that time I will have married and had child
Before the child performs evil deeds
May the lord take her to heaven
Maybe we can honour

I have problems, many unsolveable problems
I lack patience, nothing gives me satisfaction
I frequently seem impolite to people, as if I was born with this nature
I detest being a star, but ironically hope to attract attention

On reading the entertainment section of the paper
There is a grand charity performance by the stars
Many people donate money
That's our contribution
I dislike politics, it feels dangerous
Caring for society, but the society is on moral fall
Of course, there is a good side to the situation
I only believe in love, hoping for a happy family
Unfortunatley, the fortune teller told me my marriage
would not be too stable

Said when I'm 40 years old, my husband would have affairs
That makes me worried, very worried indeed

	 there is an optimistic exit
But would there be an exit

I believe in Buddhism
Would that be of any help
I have attempted to grasp happiness
But what is happiness
The concept of happiness is so vague.


Brink of Love And Pain (愛與痛的邊緣)

Pacing up and down in front of the road,
I look back at this period.
You have kissed my face,
a hundred, thousand times already.
Never thought,
there will be a day,
in the night's rain,
when I can't find a decision.
Leaving me lonely,
waiting from one o'clock to three.

*Unafraid of meeting you,
it's still my wish.
I still have my feelings,
need I hide them?
If you no longer wish to love me,
why tell blatant lies?
Causing me to wait and wait,
waiting for the day we recover tenderness.

#Emotion is like raindrops,
looks broken but is hard to break.
The more you think,
the more confusing.
No longer want to be entangled with you.
I have my dignity,
no longer want it hurt.

Can't help my heart,
wants to reason but it's hard to.
Goodbye to waiting,
but I still feel unfulfilled.
Forever on the brink of love and pain.
How do I make my choice?
   (repeat *##)


Lost Track (迷路)

Music: C Y Kong			Lyrics: Lin Xi

Yellow is like the sunset after rain
Blue is like the men in the world
Following the road, on a far journey
Red light, Green light, Red light

*In front of me is your face's silhouette
Mesmerising, mesmerising
But turning back, I feel the story
has faded, has faded
Immersed in a journey of borderless thoughts
Why is good and bad, black and white
Never clear?

In remembrance's country, I've lost my way

Where can there be return?
Use your back shadow from the past
Attach it to my eyes
Continue to think of you
Gestures, Words, Time, Circumstances
It is April's snow
August's sound of rain
Thinking of you until until
until there can't be remembrance
Longing for you until I lose my way,
it's just as well
Unwilling to be silent

Emotions are feelings from the past
Time is yesterday's clock hand
Following the road, on a far journey
Trapped in remembrance's forest
(repeat *)


You Are In My Heart

You said you'd certainly come here to see me
You can't know how every day I long for you
Don't forget you already said
You have deep feelings for me
I hope you can return quickly
I'm waiting for yesterday's warm feeling to return

Please stay, don't go far away again
Let me speak from deep in my heart
In my heart is so much love for you
I hope I am in your heart too

I want to remember talking with you
We can always communicate heart to heart
I want to treasure the sweet days when the two of us were together
Forget that time of absence
Painful and lonely for both of us
And please don't ever heartlessly forget me

Please stay, I don't want you to go
I really love you so much
In my heart there is love for you forever
I hope I am in your heart too
(Repeat chorus)


Date (約定)

still remembering that day lodge's door-sign
still saving smiling departing expression
that day the whole city
so light-hearted
along the road together walking half-mile long street
still remembering streetlight shining a face of yellow
and illuminating that set of lukewarm take-out
silhouetted your face-contour looks too good
after freezing tears to dare look carefully
     *forgetting sky earth    feels like unable to think of oneself
yet not forgetting both agreed to watch all over sky yellow leaves flying far
if will with you separate  melacholic drama
have to determine to forget then i cannot remember
tomorrow's sky earth only afraid not recognizing oneself
yet not forgetting with you agreed to meet as if having no death
despite your strong wide chest cannot fight weather
two temples hoary can still recognize you*
still remembering that day guitar's chord
still understanding every segment of melody's curvature
that day street corner flowed your voice
along the road journey like a song diminishing
despite your strong wide chest
cannot fight weather
two temples hoary can still recognize you


Sky (天空)

Why does my sky hang with wet tears?
Why is its face always gray?
Drifting on the other side of the world
Allowing loneliness to ravage, over and over
The sky draws out lengthy longing

Does your sky have memory-laced clouds?
Does it have a cold moon?
Left on the other side of the world
Allowing loneliness to consume, night after night
The sky harbours deep longing

When will our sky finally merge into one?
When will it be joined?
Waiting at separate sides of the world
Allowing loneliness to mock, year after year
The sky is stacked with longing

I hope the sky will no longer be masked with wet tears
I hope it will no longer be colored gray


Sky Like Earth

When the clear wind drifts by in the long night
When the sky surrounds only you
In my sea of thoughts, I hope you have thought of me

When the deep eve can in no way be knocked broken
When the painted darkness gathers no strength to understand me
I can only pretend, that it's still you tightly embracing me

But the man I have parted with
Are you alone in the deepness of the night
Will you fall in love with someone else out of boredom?

Seeing you, kissing you,
those are the ways to possess heaven and earth
How I hate, every time,
for long or for very short that we must part

Waiting for you, I will wait for you,
regardless of parting between heaven and earth
Each and every kiss, I will keep,
and wait until I can kiss you again


Cold War (冷戰)

Composer: Tori Amos	Lyrics: Lin Xi

How can I know that I am really embracing you in silence
Like palpating a pile of mobile air
Witnessing innumerable amounts of question marks kissed away by the
Reticent you
Can I only Prevaricate myself?
Never fear, never dare to divulge you.
Heard that you and that mime fell in love
I too, like others silently act this act yet undesireable to separate
Wordless together as if you and I having a tacit understanding,
Never wanting childish disputes
But countenance, both of our countenances, inarticulately suggests this

Is cold war

How many years together yet implicit
Rumors, like wind, surround us, here and there
Never listen never speak, never think of a sentence
Fear to reveal unintentionally embarassing evidence how to face

Trample true feelings in silence
Transform into the most intriguing mime who doesn't nag or cheat
Forever silently,solitarily impersonate your lover
No matter who you are thinking of
Wordless together as if you and I having a tacit understanding
Never wanting childish disputes
Both countenance, both of your countenances, as if no speech

There is no speech
There is no speech like cold war
How many years together yet wordless
Seems like how many years covet to love neglect to say
Covet to love yet neglect to say
Let you pass by in front of my bare eyes.


Fragile Woman (容易受傷的女人)

We gradually became drunk as we go deeper into the night
At this moment we are so close together
My reminiscence seems to be shaking
My dilemma grows deeply into me all the more

With my once broken heart
I let you softly attach to it today
So much relief but also doubt
Secretly growing on me again

Love is hard to resist
I am actually a woman who can be very easily broken-hearted
Please don't, please don't, please don't come and go in such a hurry
Please have pity on my heart

If you do understand me
And continue to fall madly in love
With this woman who can be very easily broken-hearted
Don't wait any longer, at this moment, kiss me passionately

Having you for a long night, it's intoxicaton but also reality
You allow me to have finally found my faith
I don't care if everything is still an uncertainty
Happiness are lovers


Pledge (誓言)

I thought that we could be together forever
Lots of times, I think of this and I don't want to fall asleep
If you could give me a sincere certainty
It doesn't matter; nothing matters to me

The road ahead is perhaps not too clear
After I proceed on confidently, perhaps I'll find it exhausting
Perhaps I'll want to stop but can't stop

The darker the sky becomes, the more tired my heart becomes
I saw your face, listened to your unvoiced pledge
At that moment I discovered
That one day I walked past you and didn't catch your gaze

I take my heart and give it to you to console
Is it possible for me not to have to take it back?
[Please] don't think that an assiduous heart is unbreakable
[Please] don't think that nothing matters to me


No Regrets (執迷不悔)

Composed by Yuan Wei-Ren; Lyrics by Faye Wong

This time I resolutely face
Uninhibitive obssession
I don't really mind
Whether this being right or wrong
Even if fallen deep
I don't really care
Even if I grasp on to uncertainty
I grasp on to it with no regrets

Don't say that I should give it up
That I should open my eyes
I use my heart
To see and to feel
You are not me
How can you understand
Even if I grasp on to uncertainty
Let me hold on to it with no regrets

I am not as perfect as you may think
Sometimes I also can't distinguish being right from being wrong
It's not that I don't want to walk out of uncertainty
But only this time
This time it's myself and no one else

Whose heart should I use to realize
To truly touch upon my surroundings
Even if it's pain
Even if it meant tears
It's just my self's own sorrow

Whose heart can I still use to realize
To truly touch upon my surroundings
Even if I'm fatigued
Even if it's exhaustion
I can only grasp on to uncertainty with no regrets


Scandalous (曖昧)

Music: Chan Siu Ha		Lyrics: Lin Xi

in eyebrows and eyes seems like crying
seems not like crying
still praying for something
unable to be said
accompanying you lightly
exhaling circles of smoke
to the tip of lips
cannot say it's satisfaction
your tenderness how can one catch
closer and closer
yet never touching

la da la da da
la da da da

*tea not yet finished already turning sour
never passionately love
yet already loving each other
accompanying you going in circles everyday
that entanglement
how can it be short
your clothes today i am wearing
not keeping you yet keeping the warmth*

@loitering between something that
resembles bitterness and sweetness
cannot see through these scandalous eyes
love or sentiment borrowed to fill a night
must be returned
don't be too greedy
hesitating between something that
resembles togetherness and departure
cannot see through these scandalous eyes
it's like viscous yet still diluted
sky long turned grayish blue
want to say goodbye
yet not late@
(repeat *@@)


Wishing We Last Forever (但願人長久)

Translation: Dexter Tay
 "The lyrics come from an ancient poem by a famous Chinese poet, Su Sh. The
  poet is sad, anguished, and drinking, because he is separated from his lover.
  He contemplates the moon, asking when it is ever clear and round, symbolizing
  happiness and the reunion of lovers; he consoles himself with the thought that
  his lover is gazing at the same moon. Ancient Chinese(w幯y嫕) is really a
  separate language, and not easy to translate. Here is the ending of the poem,
  in a very literal and then a free translation. "

People have sadness/cheerful parting/meeting
The moon has dark cloudless circle lacking
This matter strange difficult wholly
Only wish person long time
A thousand miles share beautiful abandonment

Life is about parting and coming together
The moon has times when it is not round
Nothing is perfect [It is an entirely difficult thing]
Only wishing for eternity
No matter how far apart, it is happiness to see the same moon


Back Shadow

If you smile at this moment, I wouldn't be in tears
Like a form and it's shadow the most passionate of companions
Being together everytime and everywhere
But then we can't embrace each other; trying to embrace and it would be lost
Not knowing the resemblance of each other

If you feel sad, I wouldn't be happy
Like a form and it's shadow doing the same type of movement
Coming straight upon common sense
Being close, but compare with you one step too slow, too early, ahead or
Forever casting my back against the sunlight

*Just like the reflection beside your body, a hazy shadow of your back
Neither clear nor sober, burying the true nature of mine
I cannot go afar, nor can I come to a stop
Covering my eyes, how can I clearly keep apart the vivid shadow of your back
Not making a single sound, but often inducing resonance by your left and
What a pity, you have not yet clearly seen*

If you want to move forward, I wouldn't step behind
Like a cast of shadow that cannot perform solo
There's not even a name I possess
Then again, half of it was left in your heart, the other half behind your
How is it possible to walk alone on my own


I am fast changing into a shadow
Hard to embrace, harder to abandon
Often be with you
Just like you


Can't keep apart, can't keep apart, the shadow of your back
Can't keep apart, can't keep apart, the shadow of your back


Because Of Him (多得他)

The very first moment I let him hug me with his arms
I felt weak, smiled, and didn't know what to do
Yet I believed I was the weakness person on earth
and therefore I needed his hugs
So let my lazy body sink into his arms

Be it in reality or in my dreams
He controlled every second of my life
I never realised his breath had urghed me to become such a fool
Led to believed I was too weak and too easily touched
Didn't know I could be reckless and carefree too

"Thanks to him", he gave me courage
Really owe it to him that now I learnt
The ending to every story is nothing but separation
Always separation
Only after I lost him
Did I realised that I didn't need his arms and I wouldn't cry or feel angry

At first I would wait for him everyday to cast away my cold feelings with his body
I admitted I was too scared of coldness so I needed my lover's warmth
Who would have guessed that I can live by myself today
If the surrounding is too cold and lonesome
I'll put on my winter clothes

At first I held his hands tight
Never loved freedom
If he let me own him forever
I would feel so fulfilled and wealthy
Who would have predicted that I have to wipe away my own tears today
No matter how long he loved me
He still flied away....

Oh no, no, no!
The kind of girl that you can let down
Thinking everything's ok
I'm only human

(Only when I lost him did I realised I don't need) LOVE

Oh~ You can't, don't let me down, don't you let me down
I'm only human...yeah!

Oh baby ~, his loving feelings had repeatedly changed me
Maybe when one loved too much
one gradually cannot define between right and wrong
Born to have a lonesome journey and I can't see my way clearly
But if I wanna see it clearly, I wouldn't need to use this spark of love to
do so!
Thank him for no longer loving me.

Oh no, Oh no.
The kind of girl that you can let down
Thinking everything's ok.
I'm only human
This girl is more than occassional
Heart as a token of love

Oh if you feel it in your heart and you understand me
Stop right where you are everybody sing along with me


Dream Lover (夢中人)

The man in my dream
I hug you tight for one minute
And kiss you for ten minutes

How have you entered my heart
Creating such excitement

Seemed like I have fallen madly in love with you before
I have never been so close to you as now
My thoughts are beginning to go wild

Why do you attack me all of a sudden
And enter into my boring dream
Arousing a wave of shock

The man in my dream
So much wanted you to be real
My heart can no longer resist

Searching in my dream
I am waiting at this minute
To kiss you for ten thousand minutes

Seemed like I have fallen madly in love with you before
Now that I am so close to you all the more
My thoughts are beginning to go wild

Why do you attack me all of a sudden
And enter into my boring dream
Arousing a wave of shock

Searching in my dream
I hug you tight for one minute
My heart can no longer resist

The man in my dream
I am waiting at this minute
To create excitement in my heart
Excitement in my heart



Impatience (躁)

Music and Lyrics: Faye Wong

september sky high people imaptient
in september
plain and boring
everything's fine
only lacking vexation


Chesspiece (棋子)

Wishing to walk out from the territory that you've controlled
However I've walked into the battle that you've arranged
I don't have a rock-solid defense
Nor do I have a backroad to retreat

Wishing to escape from the trap that you've put down
However I've fallen into another deadlock
I don't have the courage to decide upon my fortunes
Nor do I have the luck to break free

I am like a piece of chess
My backs and forths are for you to determine
I am not the only queen in your eyes
But just an insignificant piece of pawn

I am like a piece of chess
My comings and goings are not for my own to decide
Making your move and not taking back, you have never wave your mind
As I am being controlled within your hands


Decadence (墮落)

Music and Lyrics: Faye Wong

this world seems very happy
cannot see regrets
always smiling reticence
you do not fear do not worry
you're naturally (to be) undaunted
to shed disguises
pick away beliefs
you are not willing to speak much
you want to be less restrained
nothing to be afraid of
nothing to worry
painfully enjoy
hesistantly deteriorate
cannot hinder temptation
you then refuse lonliness
you are not wrong
because no one has been right
tranquil heart
so you embrace decadence
oh come  oh come
I accompany you
oh come  oh come  oh come
to continue  to continue
I don't have much to say
cannot think clearly of outcome
and am not prepared for self-reprobation
I do not fear do not hurry
naturally (to be) undaunted
hopelessly to ascend against downstream
knowingly to fall into trapped net
do not have any other thinking
only want to be less restrained
to pretend not to discover
behind is goodness' falsity
draining spirit
coercively struggle
nothing is missed
actually gaining nothing
cannot say it's dissapointment
intertwining of intoxication and anesthesia
starting from here
unconsciously to embrace decadence
oh come oh come
I accampany you
oh come oh come  oh come
to continue  to continue
