Kisses that cause sadness

Today we shift to the sad side of love, where the love is one-way and the one in love gets ever sadder. We have 越吻越伤心 | Jyut6 man5 jyut6 soeng1-sam1, "The more I kiss the sadder I am", a Cantonese song met sometime between Christmas 2012 and Easter 2013 and translated to English way later in the evening of Jan 11 2018, with a couple tweaks the next day. Let's see it!


越吻越伤心
仍然糊涂是我过份
明明知道彼此不再情深
何必追问远近

郑:
问你哪个配搭
穿起使我最陪衬
蘇:
但你冷冷两眼
似看着无聊闲人
郑:
问你哪一出好戏
最近会冷人提提神
蘇:
但换来连场沉默
如像跟我嬉笑不再吸引
郑:
问你我喝醉了
可不可对我吻吻
蘇:
但你碰碰嘴角
动作像瞭瞭途人
郑:
问你会否因工作
太累两目完全无神
蘇:
而你似强制
內心的抖震

一个后一个:越吻越伤心
郑:
明明无余地再过问
明明知道衷心一吻
蘇:Mm
合(两个旋律):
会有更亲厚质感
一个后一个:越吻越伤心
郑:
仍然糊涂是我过份
蘇:OH BABY
郑:明明知道彼此不再情深
合(两个旋律):何必追问远近

郑:
问你距我太远
可不可以坐更近
蘇:
但你似听见了
某个极无聊奇闻
郑:
问你有否想起
你我是哪样成为情人
蘇:
但换来连埸沈默
如像早觉得我不再吸引
郑:
问你那晚见我
怎么湿透了发鬓
蘇:
但你似觉得我
问错问题如傻人
郑:
问到你跟他相处
背后那段缠绵传闻
蘇:
而你却窃笑
像偷偷兴奋

合(两个旋律):
越吻越伤心
明明无余地再过问
明明知道衷心一吻
会有更亲厚质感
越吻越伤心
仍然糊涂是我过份
明明知道彼此不再情深
蘇:
无谓再三逼近

Kisses make me sad
The confusion's I'm persistent
I know well we won't be in love again
Why should I keep coming close?

Zheng:
I ask which is the outfit
With best-matching top and bottom
Su:
But your ice-cold eyes
Seem to look at a boring man
Zheng:
I ask you which recent play
Is most refreshing in your eyes
Su:
But then the stage turns silent
As if laughing with me ain't interesting
Zheng:
We're both drunk, I ask you
If you can give me a kiss
Su:
But you touch my mouth
As if to tease a passerby
Zheng:
I ask you if work ever tires you
So your eyes are tot'lly void
Su:
You seem to shake
With force in your heart

One after the other: Kisses make me sad
Zheng:
I know you'll never be int'rested
I know that a heartfelt kiss from you
Su: Mm
Together (two tunes):
Will feel much more like true love
One after the other: Kisses make me sad
Zheng:
The confusion's I'm persistent
Su: OH BABY
Zheng: I know well we won't be in love again
Together (two tunes): Why should I keep coming close?

Zheng:
I ask if, since you're so far,
You could come sit a little nearer
Su:
You seem to have heard
A very boring anecdote
Zheng:
I ask if you still remember
How we got together then
Su:
But then the stage turns silent
As if you thought I'm not interesting
Zheng:
I ask you how your hair got drenched
That night you came to see me
Su:
You seem to think I'm asking
The wrong question like a fool
Zheng:
I ask you about that rumor
That you met him b'hind my back
Su:
You snigger as
If secretly excited

Together (two tunes):
Kisses make me sad
I know you'll ne'er be interested
I know that a heartfelt kiss from you
Will feel much more like true love
Kisses make me sad
The confusion's I'm persistent
I know well we won't be in love again
Su:
It's pointless to keep coming close
