Good Night Hong Kong by Paul Wong
Composed by Paul Wong
Lyrics by Gene Lau
Arranged by Zhang Yadong
(In impetuous, glorious overnight city,
urbanites are always walking around.
The road is still congested,
and I am still perplexed.)
想找廣闊的遠方 和她飛往 難道
(I’m still standing tall and firm
while resisting disdainful comments.
I wish to look for a spacious and
faraway place, to fly away with her.
Do we have to bear this – from cradle to grave,
we fear neither dejection nor stormy waves,
toiling away for days and nights, the hope
lies in working and squandering money.)
(Pedestrians too busy to go home,
are instead hugging men and women.
The radio stations soothing your heart
are broadcasting affectionate rantings.)
只想真理不說謊 人可釋放 難道
(Growing weary of grand occasion, I’m
performing good night show of the city.
I merely wish that truth doesn’t tell a lie,
and for the people to relax themselves.)
(Do we have to bear this – when we
have no strength to resist, we cover
our ears as if we’ve heard no noise.
Do we express ourselves online.
Are there sins and troubles.)
