a duet



i love how his eyes are fixed on her throughout the song. of course, that's prolly the only way you can do a 和音 (合音?) well, but still... very nice. but the fact that they've since gone their separate ways after so many years together (and the fact that so many others around me have too), fills me with doubt and uncertainty about many things.

*edit, 13 may 2010, 3.57am*

i just found out, through the youtube comments, that the song in the mv was sung after they'd already split, but that to this day, they'd always dedicate the song to each other every time they sang it. in the context of (i) this song actually "belonging" more to andy hui than it does sammi, (ii) him doing such a good job just being her back-up singer (relinquishing the 主角 role in the song) 'tho it really was his song before it was hers, (iii) her career always having been much more high-flying than his ever was, blah blah blah... i find this very... umm, touching. touching also that even having split, much of the lyrics could still very much apply to the other party.

of course, the more clear-minded and cynical part of me says, all this that i feel about the mv, that makes me like it so much, could very well be a product of the manipulation by the videography(??)... cutting and pasting scenes of the two people singing the song and putting them side by side so that it seems that it's just the two of them in their own world, and that they only have eyes for each other (or that andy only has eyes for sammi, that is).

but i think i still prefer to think of it from the more positive (and, unfortunately, also the more romantic) angle. it makes me happier this way. something i've denied all my life (and will continue doing so) but secretly suspect might be true - that i could actually be a hopeless romantic. help.

曾听说有许多恋爱没有结果
却剩伤心者感慨令我都刻意避开
是我不敢相信真爱
但你不惜真心真意对待
竟令我再感到意外
让我献出全部热爱全面喝采

如果今天将失去眼前的一切
剩低清风两袖也不计
唯独你一个是不可给取替
是我生命里的一切

如早知今生跟你有幸可相爱
在当初应更努力为未来
其实我知道是可一不可再
下半生准我留住你一直相爱

谁似你这般欣赏我
谁也说不上你一般清楚我
问我可需要甚么愿你终身交托给我
让我一生好好把你照料
请让我体恤你需要
为你献出全部热爱从来没缺少

如果今天将失去眼前的一切
剩低清风两袖也不计
唯独你一个是不可给取替
是我生命里的一切

如早知今生跟你有幸可相爱
在当初应更努力为未来
其实我知道是可一不可再
下半生准我留住你一直相爱
