Translated Lyrics

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


                                        [Top][Next]



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

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



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 *##)

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

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]


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
repeat*
despite your strong wide chest
cannot fight weather
two temples hoary can still recognize you

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



I'm Willing (我願意)

Reminiscence is a profoundly mystical thing
Like a shadow following its form
Soundless and breathless, it appears out of the bottom of my heart
By the blink of an eye, it swallows me up into desolation
I don't have the strength to resist
Especially at night  OH~
Thinking about you until I am out of breath
So regrettable at this instant that I cannot
Run wildly toward you
Loudly telling you that  HM~
I am willing for you
I am willing for you
I AM WILLING FOR YOU
To forget who I am
For just a second longer
If I can remain under your embrace
Letting my world go won't be a pity
I am willing for you
I am willing for you
I AM WILLING FOR YOU
To be exiled towards the edge of the sky
Only if you genuinely could
Love me as I do to you
Anything I am willing to do
Anything, for you

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



Undercurrent (暗湧)

*if sky turns darker cannot see cracks
frowns still gathers dense clouds
if a house of dim light
cannot shine through my body
yet can still reflect your heart
let this cigarette rise  my body sinks
had so much wanted to so much wanted to get close
your heart and eye mouth and ear yet have no fated affinities
i cannot hold on tightly
afraid tragedy to reenact
in my life in my life
the more beautiful the things i cannot touch
history is reenacting  in such noisy city
unreasonable  loving each other having no hiddenrush
really for me to cherish you what does it do
is it that this time me holding you tightly might not lose out*
@still silently waiting you told me not to pay wrong attention
anything i have intuition
and then unable to open two eyes
watching destiny approaches
and then sky again rushes dense clouds@
repeat * @@ and then sky again rushes dense clouds

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



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 *@@)

Lau Faye Faye (流非飛)

Faye Faye won't stop asking me
Am I making a mistake
Saying too much perversely becomes a mistake

Faye Faye won't stop telling me
Don't do this and that
Like it that I still do

*I used to ask myself why
Answering in such a nutty way
Will you please don't
carelessly and recklessly judge me

FREEDOM FLIES  FREEDOM FLIES
ABSOLUTELY NOT FREEDOM
ABSOLUTELY NOT FREEDOM*

Drifty that I may be
Make you catch fire
You still don't understand me

I seemed to make a wrong expression
My make-up obsessed with the devil
No one would forgive me

If talking becomes so odd
The story becomes too mystified
Don't care about those gossips
Acting recklessly

FAYE FAYE  Looking at laughters flying all over the sky
FAYE FAYE  Will you please let me go
FAYE FAYE  Too egoistical and too carefree
FAYE FAYE  Don't like to care and not happy

Faye Faye doesn't wear a tie today
Her looks are so weird
The truth is that she doesn't want to be too dandy

In the East where people become refreshed everyday
One week's worth of mentality
The truth is that our minds are too perverted

Faye Faye goes out to the streets
to give cold shoulders
Such snobbish looks
The truth is that she's not too happy

Pretending that she needs to display a new style everyday
From that of the sophisticated party
Wishing to ask whether he can comprehend

Like you that I still do
Looks like there's no consequence
Beijing is still beautiful

Faye Faye still remember
Looks like there's no consequence
Like you that I still do

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA............

Di-Dar

Music: Faye Wong		Lyrics: Lin Xi

Don't want to steal a second's glance at you
For fear that I'll suddenly break into a smile
That I'll naturally love to no end
That I'll suddenly scream
For the soul to disengage, disengage, disengage

Don't want to listen to your heartbeat
For fear that you'll suddenly wake
That you'll naturally say the night's too late
That you need to leave
I suddenly break into tears,
break into tears, break into tears
Di-Dar...

Don't want to own any sum of you
For fear that I'll suddenly remember
That you're actually too important
I suddenly find it hard to breathe
Will suddenly feel like screaming,
feel like jumping, feel like wanting
Di-Dar...

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



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

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



Dream Lover (夢中人)

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

Stranger
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
LA~  LA LA LA~  LA LA LA~

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

LA LA LA~ LA~ LA~ LA LA~

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



Ingratiate Oneself (討好自己)

Pleasing oneself,
Trying to avoid,
Unconsciously,
Going away,

A sky full of rumours and gossip,
Be my own logic.

A group/gust of friendliness,
Handling logic,
Cover, hide,
My face,

Actually, it's all self-consciousness,
Actually, it's all deceiving oneself.

*Ho----oh..oh..oh..oh..oh
La----ngah----La----ngah....La..ngah...
Ho----oh..oh..oh..oh..oh
La----ngah----La----ngah....La..ngah...

Pleasing oneself,
Try to avoid,
Unconsciously,
Float away...

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

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



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

                                        [Previous][Top]
