Lyrics

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time
I’ve lost my mind
I’ve been losing days
Inside the haze
But then you walk into my life
I’ve found hope to take

Hands of fate seems so cold
Giving me a vacant hope
Though tears have filled my eyes
I swear I won’t cry

*What makes me laugh when you’re around
What lets me down when we’re apart
Oh you have to let me know
To get over you
I don’t wanna be a fool anymore*

Everything
that you have done
No matter what they are
I’ll bear in mind
Though tears have filled my eyes
I swear I won’t cry

*What makes me laugh when you’re around
What lets me down when we’re apart
Oh you have to let me know
To get over you
I don’t wanna be a fool anymore

I want to sleep with your voice
This tragic kiss left me no choice
I just wanna let you know
when the night seems so long
I will always be there by your side*

Oh you have to let me know
To get over you
I don’t wanna be a fool anymore

Cantonese Version

Heitung has also recorded a Cantonese version of her song (with lyrics by Alvin Hui)

 

忘記

誰為你顧慮 心思交瘁?
誰為你淚垂 歷久不衰?

過去了痛應該洗去 無謂作負累
作錯了心都敲碎 要奮鬥理想應該追
到振作了應想一趟 誰人忘掉了麼?

誰可以將一切拋棄 誰不記得昨日恬熙
但美好終須遠去 留低只有憶記
誰曾燃亮我的心 記不起

作錯了心都敲碎 要奮鬥理想應該追
到振作了應想一趟 誰人陪著你麼?

誰可以將一切拋棄 誰不盼得以後恬熙
但再好終須遠去 回憶轉變古記
誰曾燃亮我的心 這知己

誰可以將一切捨棄 誰不盼得以後恬熙
但再好終須遠去 回憶轉變古記
誰曾燃亮我的心 這知己

但再好終須遠去 回憶轉變古記
誰曾燃亮我的心 這知己
