Can I stop loving you?

And if we are parting, another question may spontaneously arise: how do I avoid loving you still, and tormenting myself with the memories of our wonderful affair which is now over? Or in other words, 能否不想你 | Nang4-fau2 bat1 soeng2 nei5? | Can I not love you?, as the song we look at today is titled. This is a Cantonese song encountered shortly after the last post's song, and translated within the same old Summer 2011 into English. So let's see it!

曾爱上妳      神话故事般美
无奈要放弃      倦了便乏味
而当天的主角      不睬不理

# 行李载满      离别伤心空气
门若闭上了      便再会无期
离开一生所爱      仿佛演戏

* 让我知      能否不想妳
相恋纵是美      分开多痛悲
愿我可      真的不想妳
从前热恋      不想再记

仍始终      想妳

Once I loved you      it was mythic’lly good
You just want to leave      you got tired and bored
The role you have this day      you don’t care for
I’m like a disc-player mute

You’re baggage’s full      you leave me sad, in pain
You now close the door,      “See ya when I do”,
Leaving a whole life’s love      you seem to feign
I want to forget this fact

Let me know:      Can I not love you?
Although love is nice      parting’s such a pain
Wish I could      truly not love you
Not remember      of my old love



Though on this earth I’ve abandoned lots of thoughts,
Tears gushed secretly, heartbreak was prepared
Just a blink and I
Still always      love you
