Affection, oh, of what is affection comprised? Where from and how has it got the power like that To impel you to live and die just side by side? Though travelers flying across those terrains wide, What lots of summers and winters you’ve spent in flight, While going thro’ common pleasures, parting plight! No wonder abiding couples are found thereby. Alone, whit the idea: “No point those troubles taking, Laboring ‘gaisnt clouds unending, o’er mountains dark’ning, So lonely, a single shadow alongside casting.”
On the site where Emperor Hanwu crossed the Fen, No more are there his barges and music of his band. Remaining dismal woods by a dim mist screened. “Come back, you spirits!” we call again and again, While lonely Maid Yao crying ‘mid winds and rains. With devotion envied by God, you’re not she same As oriole and swallows mortal, bound to decay. In order that future poets raise their drinks to you, The Mound I build here, a memorial to love so true!
[Eyes on me] – live by Charlie Zhou. His voice is so beautiful and touching.
One of my favorite songs by Faye Wong many years ago for FF8. Loved both the game and the song.
Whenever sang my songs On the stage, on my own Whenever said my words Wishing they would be heard I saw you smiling at me Was it real or just my fantasy You’d always be there in the corner Of this tiny in little bar My last night here for you Same old songs, just once more My last night tear with you? Maybe yes, maybe no I kind of liked it to your way How you shyly placed your eyes on me Oh, did you ever know? That I had mine on you Darling, so there you are With that look on your face As if you’re never hurt As if you’re never down
“It’s amazing how you can speak right to my heart Without saying a word you can light up the dark The smile on your face lets me know that you need me There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me The touch of our hands say you’ll catch me if ever I fall You say it best when you say nothing at all Try as they may, they can never define Whats being said between your heart and mine…”
