100,000 Whys?
[Cinepoly, September 1993] The R&B influence on Faye is losing its hold on this album. Faye's taste was turing to the likes of Tori Amos, Cranberries, Cocteau Twins, Sundays, Police, etc. Her take of Amos' "Silent All These Years" (Cold War) was sang to perfection. This song could make anyone set the player to play "Cold War" over and over. It was so good. But the HK market wasn't ready for any thing other than Canto-pop. So Faye gave them just that with a fast catchy song, "Lau Faye Faye", which was written to reflect Faye herself and fans eat it all up. "Summer of Love" is surprisingly another great slow song. Faye also got to sing her second all-english song, even though "Do We Really Care" has more ambition behind it, it lacks the the likability of "Kisses In The Wind."

Translated Lyrics

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


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............


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.


Do We Really Care

I saw a picture of a small girl
Crying and living in a lost world
The men fight for dear God
She don't care cause
there ain't nothing left to share
I'd watched T.V. about a sick girl
She was only nine but she'll be gone soon
When and where she's going God will know
She doesn't want the sun to go¡@

¡¯Don't you know that we care
Keep the faith and hope is here
Deep in my heart I ask myself
Do we really really care¡¯
I read the paper of a coloured boy
He was starving so we're the lone vultures
Why so full of sorrow no tomorrow
There's no rainbow
Will he ever know?

Don't you know that we pray
For you to see the light of day
For you to bring back the look of love
Words of wisdom
Is it enough
