Love Letter to Myself ~ Song Saturday

It’s Saturday here and it’s time to listen to songs here at Virily!

Today I am going to share a Chinese song, a Cantonese song. The song title in Chinese is actually 给自己的情书, which is Love Letter to Myself. This song is sung by Faye Wong and it was released in year 2000.

I don’t know why I always like this song. Besides the melody and her voice, I also like the lyrics. The song is about a broken-heart lady encouraging herself to love and take good care of herself. I like to write love letter to myself sometimes. I think it’s a good way to reflect and heal especially when I am not motivated.

Have you heard of Faye Wong or this song before?

  1. Well first off, I do know why you like that song, her voice is great. Secondly, I looked up the english version. Here it is for all.
    ENGLISH TRANSLATION

    Please don’t be dejected
    you have someone who’s jealous(of you)
    you are too ambitious
    only make yourself look small

    Don’t give up & lose self so early
    there are too many places (to visit)
    you remember to work hard
    will celebrate your happiness with you

    CHORUS:
    la la la console yourself
    happy things have to wholeheartedly remember
    la la la love yourself
    its the most fundamental truth
    Write this noble love letter
    use my own words
    be my gospel
    don’t love self
    how to be in love
    how to give lover any good
    This thousand pounds heavy love letter
    in the depth of night
    like front door big tree
    without relying on him
    going home won’t need to avoid rain

    please don’t be sad
    i’ll take you as an idol
    you want others to love&sympathy
    first equip a first aid kit
    Do whatever is good
    don’t because of gaining praises
    you have to be strong til the end
    then only think for others
