Memories and forgetfulness

Within our breaking up theme, we stop for a moment on the theme of memory, which is a reason of grief when a breakup has taken place, as we saw in the last song. Today's Cantonese song 记得忘记 | Gei3-dak1 mong4-gei3, "Remembering and forgetting", is a wonderful song I met near the end of year 2 of Chinese (Aug-Sep 2013), and only translated way later, on Aug 11 2017 at 19:27. Let's see it!


欣彤:明天过后
求(/来)挥一挥手
天高地厚
就此各自畅遊
忘记玩偶
忘不了荡过千秋
纵使双手多么紧扣
亦要走
从此以后
谁也不回头
一早熟透/一早热透
汗水切勿倒流
忘记没有
忘不了路过沙丘
爱到枯干都找不到绿洲

你在我记忆旅行
每步也惊心
跟你踏过许多足印
合:捨不得转身
你赠我太多见闻
拿不走的热吻
多努力放低
偏不会忘记
苦恋纪念品
纯属过路风筝
不懂爱別人

合:浮沙满地
沉重的传奇
沙粒极重
任它浸没眼眉
忘记道理
忘不了亦会别离
在你掌心之中刻上自己

你在我记忆旅行
每步也惊心
跟你踏过许多足印
捨不得转身
你赠我太多见闻
拿不走的热吻
多努力放低
偏不会忘记
苦恋纪念品
忘掉昨日今天
不必要热吻

峰:你在我記憶旅行
每步也驚心
合:跟你踏过许多足印
捨不得转身
峰:你赠我太多见闻
拿不走的热吻
合:多努力放低
偏不会忘记
苦恋爱纪念品
纯属过路风筝
不懂爱別人
宁愿以后
只可分享半滴吻

Xintong: After tomorrow
We'll part and wave hands
Sky's high earth's thick
So each will wander free
I forgot the doll
Can't forget I pushed the swing
Though our hands are close together
We will part
And from now on
None of us will turn back
We're ready now
And sweat does not flow back
Did you forget
I can't forget we went through dunes
Loved and withered, no oasis we found

You travel in my mem'ries
Scared at every step
I walked so many steps with you
Both: Can't bear to turn back
You gave me too many a sweet kiss
That no-one can take away
Though striving to put down
I'll ne'er forget
This so bitter love
I'm just a passerby,
Can't get you love someone else

Both: Sand everywhere
A heavy romance
Sand grains are heavy
Let them submerge my eyes
I forgot the road
Can't forget but still will part
You are carved here in the palm of my hand

You travel in my mem'ries
Scared at every step
I walked so many steps with you
Can't bear to turn back
You gave me too many a sweet kiss
That no-one can take away
Though striving to put down
I'll ne'er forget
This so bitter love
I forgot I did not need
Your warm warm kiss

Feng: You travel in my mem'ries
Scared at every step
Both: I walked so many steps with you
Can't bear to turn back
Feng: You gave me too many a sweet kiss
That no-one can take away
Both: Though striving to put down
I'll ne'er forget
This so bitter love
I'm just a passerby,
Can't get you love someone else
I'd rather we could later
Just share half a kiss
