Cannot love you

As I said two posts ago in Italian, links between successive posts will get weaker, since all strong ideas were mainly before the series of posts to end the poem translations. Indeed, today's Cantonese song has no link that I can figure out with the previous post. It is 爱不起Ngoi3 bat1 hei2, "I can't afford to love you". I met with it sometime between Jun 22 2013 and mid-July that year, and translated it to English way later, near 4pm of 24/1/18, except for the line "rich as you are" which is from near 4pm on 5/9/18 and takes this into account. Let's see it!


讲不出的
都可给你猜透
令我发觉开不了口
你那眼角斜望着我
令我心动让我心跳
令我失控

#很想讲的不敢跟你讲
最怕进退不得的迷惘
每次偶尔沿途遇上
令我失仪让我失控
令我失意

*躲于哪处总是想你
沒一处不在
花花世界这么广阔
就算天哪样大
或处境怎样坏
但已跨过疆界

@哦哦哦哦哦
永沒法子爱你
你或会同情我
极度迷惑了
而能力上永远付不起
哦哦哦哦
永远沒法给予你
你渴望那份完美
愈是迷住我豪华名贵
愈是发现爱不起

I can let you guess all things I can't tell
I find I dare not open my mouth
Whenever your eyes come look at me
It makes my heart beat makes my heart jump
Makes me lose control

I dare not say what I really want to say
I fear I'll get confused beyond recovery
Each time I meet you randomly
It makes me lose tact makes me lose control
Makes me frustrated

Wherever I hide I always think of you
You're with me anywhere
This mortal world is oh so big
Though the sky is so big
This situation's so bad
I have crossed the border

* Oh oh oh oh oh
I never can love you
Maybe you'll pity me
I am so confused
And cannot afford to go further
Oh oh oh oh
I can never give to you
That perfection that you want
The more you fascinate me, rich as you are,
The more I find out I can't love you
