HK Scenic Tour 98/99
[EMI, December 1999] I must say this is the best live CD from Faye up to date. She sings very well (as usual) and probably tries to give that little extra since the concert is given in Hong Kong. Together with the VCD it gives you at least a glimpse of what it might have been to have been there that evening. Actually, not only Faye but the whole band must get credit. The way they play really lifts up Faye's singing and gives that extra touch that makes this a brilliant album to listen to. To bad we had to wait a whole year for this release, at least EMI could have put it out before the OLS album. But, better late then never, Fayenatics always seams to have to wait for Faye's music. The songs I like best are Bored, Sleepwalk, Decadence, Di-dar and I'm Willing.

Translated Lyrics

Impatience (躁)

Music and Lyrics: Faye Wong

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

                                        [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]



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]



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?

Hoo...Ah...
In remembrance's country, I've lost my way
Hoo...Ah...

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 *)

                                        [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~

Sleepwalk (夢遊)

Looking at his eyes thinking of someone else
He stays but not his heart
Looking at night lights but thinking of white clouds
This night this way is too boring
Yet that time that night was so captivating

*Can't understand the noisy jesting
Dazed amidst the crowd  Seems like I'm all hollowed out
Empty arms seem to embrace
Appears to be me but it's not
Yet I have my own dreams to make

#Sleepwalk to your feelings  there won't be boundaries
The sky and earth appear so free
People actually love to sleepwalk
There's too much cursing when awake
This flighty reality I feel I really own a piece of

Let my moods develop
Immersed in the bustle but my heart isn't here
Mumbling to myself, inspiration is flying
Sitting in the car as though flying across fields
This stifles boredom but my moods are so entangled
(repeat *# )
Sky and earth are free
(repeat *##)
Love to sleepwalk   Freer than sky and earth
Only sleepwalk      Find no boundaries
Need to sleepwalk   Freer than sky and earth
Let me sleepwalk    Find no boundaries

Doomsday (末日)

Music and Lyrics: Faye Wong

aspiration loitering crossroads
do not know which side to go
road of confidence continuously looking down
countitng stones under feet
the sun is a bit too scintillating
the air is not too fresh he thinks of this
hesistant and not advancing
beautifully flowing tears
saying goodbye to himself
deceitfully showing a smiley face
vortexing in the crowd
rationalization not convincing self
decided to give up
desire to buy everything
yet cannot satisfy emptiness
ordains and doctrines have no meanings
three hearts two wishes is captivating
doomsday coming
a bit curious  curious
no one will  care

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]




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

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]



Angel (天使)

If possible, I wish to be more clear-headed.
If possible, I wish to be more graceful.
Pass through fog, pass through clouds,
See clear your heart.
Am I susceptible, am I too doubtful,
giving you swift news.
The love which I foolishly long to act for, is about to fly to you.
My beautiful angel heart
Is no longer mysterious.  Only for you it rests.
My gentle angel's heart
merely want you to look after me forever.
I'm willing to everyday sweetly
And wholeheartedly love you.
I don't believe in the sudden courage.
I only accept a lifetime's decision.
Pass through fog, pass through clouds,
See clear your heart.
The genuine feelings are treasured,
Not hoping it's a game.

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

One Person, Two Roles (一人分飾兩角)

If there's no important business
I won't see anyone
The events in the world outside
I won't question any of them
Breaking the rules
Is my responsibility

Reality is too boring
Go for a vacation in the land of dreams
The content of made-up stories
Is not outrageous
[What is] Outrageous
Is that you are take things too seriously

Don't be too serious
Don't be so uptight
How can you take random talk for the truth?

Don't be too serious
Don't be so naive
How can you take random talk for the truth?
I'm no god

Talking to myself
I am one person
But the dialogue
Is still divided into two parts
Two parts
Just as if there were another person

Acting out a scene
Playing both parts
A drama of dreams
Holds my life together

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...

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 *@@)

                                        [Previous][Top][Next]


Date

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]



Repayment (償還)

Music: Jim Lau			Lyrics: Lin Xi

I have never taken your photo
And admired it from left to right
I have never rested on your locks
To relieve the tingling in your skin
How could I treat them as ordinary things?

I have never listened to the sound
Of you fondling flower petals with your thumb
I have never really let go
And so I believed
That our embrace would last forever

You can only get your way after repaying
If I still haven't paid off this heartfelt wish
The stars won't change
The lies won't be discovered
Because of this, I cherish the opportunity and continue with this romance

You will only be willing after repaying
I close my eyes and admit that the story has ended
Nothing matters
Don't be reproachful
No matter how far you go

I have never watched your eyes
Shift from sleep to consciousness
I have never gone swimming with you
How could I know
That I could forget myself in my happiness?

I have never had an ice-drink with you
Nor have we admired a view in freezing weather
I have never scaled a snow-capped mountain
And so I believed
That the sky will continue to be sunny

                                        [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]


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]
