I had been sick for the last week so skipped the Friday post last week and the post yesterday. I got better but then it got worse again and I’m still very much plagued by a blocked nose so I’ve decided that the make-up post for last Friday will have to come later. Today’s lyrics is the theme song of a HK drama that is back in the 90s. It is yet another archaic Chinese themed song given that the series itself is set in ancient China in the Qing dynasty (or the last dynasty, the one ruled by Manchurians).
The title of the song is “The thought of love will forever endure”
The love of white clouds has used up everything I owned this life
Mending the mistake made by the grey sky at this moment
Even if I turn back there is anything left except for a waft of clear wind
I am willing to clear the worries of the world
The whole of this life of mine is not enough to pay back this love
How come we meet amidst beacon smoke?
Raising my head in righteousness leaving the love within my heart
Silently stepping towards fire crying within my heart
Within the millions of populace there is endless worries and difficulties
Let me take all the sadness or pain
My devotion will always hold despite waves of fierce flame
Within darkness there is destined to be dawn
Even if I turn to ashes my dreams would be as they were
The thought of love will forever endure
