I myself shoulder two persons’ debts (一个人背两人的债) – OST The Lion Roars

I am fond of watching Chinese movies. And in my house we are lucky enough to have one channel that is solely for Chinese movies! And luckier because this channel has subtitles because I cannot understand Chinese!!!

One of my favorite Chinese movies (and my sister’s favorite too) is called “The Lion Roars 河东狮吼”. It’s a funny romantic comedy about two unlikely lovers, a weak poet and an extremely strong girl. The movie is a story of how their love was tested and how they overcame all the problems in the end. I couldn’t count how many times I’ve seen this movie… and everytime it is shown on TV we watch it again!

What I am posting now is a song from that movie. I am also including the lyrics.. I shared this to a friend of mine who studied Chinese and she said this song was very sad… When you hear the melody of this song it is sad.. and when you see the movie it becomes sadder. But though it’s sad I hope you will like it!

I myself shoulder two persons’ debts – Translation

**Don’t behave like a kid
Helpless written on your whole face
Looking for someone to rely but failed
Now, the time comes
I have to leave
You, stand up firmly

Don’t blame yourself
Why not be frank before
Why you hurt the one who was with you and loved you
You are the most spoiled in my life
You are the most beloved in my life
Even though I can not take care of your future any more
I still want to clarify everything before leaving

I myself shoulder two persons’ debts
I don’t mind how many bitters ahead
I would jump into the “forgetting love” sea just for you
Even though I will be tortured to death
** Repeat

Don’t be upset
How many loves can start over again?
This is the God’s arrangement
Now, time comes
How can we change it?

Don’t be too hopeful
Be frank to yourself
Be nicer to the loved one besides you
Don’t hurt the one who loves you again

  2. it seems both links is the cantonese version but different pronounciation or romanization.. but the second one i think the closest


  3. An Unforgettable Lover (Cantonese version)

    One of the best Cantonese songs I have ever listened to

    English Lyrics

    If I should lose my memory
    Please remind me [of]
    The moment we broke up
    What occured [and]
    If I cried [and]
    Was I pitiful

    If I should not remember
    Though I engaged in passionate romance with you
    Could you please tell me why did i fall in love with you at that moment

    I’ve forgotten all hate and love
    I’m resolute to not forget you
    There’s nothing worth remembering in life
    If I’d never loved you.
    If I have fallen into a daze
    How can I forget you
    Even if fear, worry, and surprise fill my life
    I am still fond of you

    If I should lose my memory
    Please allow me from the beginning
    To think of your faults
    And your wrongdoings
    At least allow me
    To remember the pain, the suffering

    I really want to remember
    That with you I had been happy
    Please reveal what you called me that day

    I’ve forgotten all hate and love
    I’m resolute to not forget you
    Even after all my suffering, I cannot have you
    But I’ve never regretted meeting you
    If I have fallen into a daze
    How can I forget you
    Perhaps the truth is unsettling and frightful
    But I still I think of you

    萬一失了憶 就請你來提示我 分手那一幕
    事發經過 有否哭過 跌得慘痛麼
    萬一不記得 亦跟你熊熊熱戀過

    最恨最親愛全忘記 我亦決不要遺忘你
    生命並沒什麼可以記 若過去沒有喜歡過你

    要是我真正沉迷過 我如何可能遺忘你
    用一生去受怕擔驚 都要喜歡你

    萬一失了憶 就請你重頭讓我 想起你的壞
    共你的錯 至少准我 記得怎痛楚
    十分想記得 若跟你原來幸福過

    最恨最親愛全忘記 我亦決不要遺忘你
    苦難受盡亦得不到你 未怨過在最初識相你
    要是我真正沉迷過 我如何可能遺忘你
    或者真相動魄驚心 都要想起你
