Song: A-Lin (黃麗玲) – Give Me A Reason To Forget (給我一個理由忘記)

A-Lin is an amazing singer and composer, such a talent. Over the years in the music industry she has gain herself the nickname; “A Born Diva” (天生歌姬). She is just as amazing as A-Mei.

So who listens to A-Lin? And loves this song? Yes I know this song is quite old, but I think its such a heartfelt song with some much emotions. So sad ;( It also fits perfectly with the novel “Li Chuan’s Past” that LilZah is translating. How Xiao Qiu longs and misses Li Chuan, she’s trying so hard to find a reason to forget him. It’s one of my favorite songs from her. 


The rain has stopped; why is the sky still so grey
雨都停了 這片天灰什麼呢
I still remember you said that we needed to be happy
我還記得 你說我們要快樂
Late at night, the sounds of footsteps are always ear-piercing
深夜裡的腳步聲 總是刺耳
I’m scared of the loneliness so I let the wild city turn off the lights with me
害怕寂寞 就讓狂歡的城市陪我關燈

But even when I’m surrounded by many people, I still feel like I’m alone
只是哪怕周圍再多人 感覺還是一個人
Whenever I smile, my heart is still ruthlessly crying
每當我笑了 心卻狠狠的哭著

Give me a reason to forget you, who loved me so much
給我一個理由忘記 那麼愛我的你
Give me a reason to give up that decision I made back then
給我一個理由放棄 當時做的決定
Some kinds of love, the more you try to pull away, the clearer it becomes
有些愛越想抽離 卻越更清晰
And the most painful distance is when you’re not by my side, but you’re still in my heart
而最痛的距離 是你不在身邊卻在我的心裡

When I walk by every places we once went
當我走在 去過的每個地方
I will always hear your most carefree laughter
總會聽到 你那最自由的笑
When I return to the place I live alone
當我回到 一個人住的地方
I’m most scared of seeing that winter coat you loved to wear
最怕看到 冬天你最愛穿的那件外套

But even when I’m surrounded by many people, I still feel like I’m alone
只是哪怕周圍再多人 感覺還是一個人
Whenever I smile, my heart is still ruthlessly crying
每當我笑了 心卻狠狠的哭著

Give me a reason to forget you, who loved me so much
給我一個理由忘記 那麼愛我的你
Give me a reason to give up that decision I made back then
給我一個理由放棄 當時做的決定
Some kinds of love, the more you try to pull away, the clearer it becomes
有些愛越想抽離 卻越更清晰
And the most painful distance is when you’re not by my side, but you’re still in my heart
而最痛的距離 是你不在身邊卻在我的心裡

I can’t find a reason to forget our parting in the heavy rain
我找不到理由忘記 大雨裡的別離
I can’t find a reason to give up my determination to wait for you
我找不到理由放棄 我等你的決心

Some kinds of love, the more you try to pull away, the clearer it becomes
有些愛越想抽離 卻越更清晰
And the most painful distance is when you’re not by my side, but you’re still in my heart
而最痛的距離 是你不在身邊卻在我的心裡
I miss you
我想你


I also really like Kayee Tam (譚嘉儀) rendition of the song

It only takes a few seconds to make someone smile.
