Faye Wong (Wang Fei) - Cold War (Lengzhan)

I did this pinyin by hand and I'm notorious for making mistakes when I do that, so if you see one let me know.

This is a Mandarin cover of Tori Amos's "Silent All These Years". Faye also has a Cantonese version, which supposedly has better lyrics, but you know what, Cantopop fans ALWAYS say that the Cantonese version has better lyrics. Canto-fans, I am calling you out for being snobs, lol.

The quality of this video is a shame, because Faye is really showing her diva power. Especially the way she looks directly into the camera as she says "and I hate you". Somebody get me an ice pack because I feel the burn, yo.

沈默之中仍克制不要呼吸 chenmo zhi zhong reng kezhi bu yao huxistill inside the silence, holding back my breath
怕觸摸空氣壞了情緒pa chumo kongqi huaile qingxuafraid that disturbing the air will ruin the feeling
為你鎖住了問號 wei ni suozhule wenhaolocking up the question marks for you
等親愛的你吻去 deng qin'aide ni wen quwaiting for you, my dear, to kiss them away

從不聽不問不想懷疑cong bu ting bu wen bu xiang huaiyiI never listen, never ask, I don't want to doubt
怕會無力編織 pa hui wuli bianzhi afraid I'll lack the strength to pull together

將錯就錯 jiang cuo jiu cuoif it's a mistake then so be it
愛情怎麼算對錯aiqing zenme suan duicuohow can love be counted as correct or mistaken
