Fairy Tale

I first saw the music video Michael Wong's "Fairy Tale" on the tour bus during our trip to Guilin, China. During that time I have no idea who's the singer, nor do I know the song title. I just know that the music and the lyrics are very good and the music video is a tear-jerker.


The song and video's plot is basically a boy meets girl, girl helps boy to write a song, girl diagnosed with terminal illness, boy performs this song at a concert while girl lay dying in hospital, girl listens to song live through a cellphone, girl dies. Corny, but I like it just the same.

Somehow this month I heard a snippet of this song on satellite TV and I asked my daughter who sang that and she looked at me with the expression that I must be the last person on planet Earth not to know.

Anyway, here's the music video and its translated lyrics in English. Even if you do not understand Mandarin, it's worth a listen.

"Fairy Tale" - Michael Wong

I’ve forgotten how long it has been
since I’ve never again…
listened to you telling your beloved fairytale
I’ve thought for a long time
I start to panic
have I done something wrong?


You said to me full of tears
Inside the fairytale are all lies
I can’t possibly be your prince
Maybe you can ever understand
ever after you said “I love you”
The stars in my sky has lightened up


I’m willing to be
that angel you love inside the fairytale
Spread up my hands
become the wings to protect you
You must believe…
believe that we can be like that in the fairytale
prosperity and happiness is the ending


You said to me full of tears
Inside the fairytale are all lies
I can’t possibly be your prince
Maybe you can ever understand
ever after you said “I love you”
The stars in my sky has lightened up


I’m willing to be
that angel you love inside the fairytale
Spread up my hands
become the wings to protect you
You must believe…
believe that we can be like that in the fairytale
prosperity and happiness is the ending


I want to be
that angel you love inside the fairytale
Spread up my hands
become the wings to protect you
You must believe…
believe that we can be like that in the fairytale
prosperity and happiness is the ending


I will be
that angel you love inside the fairytale
Spread up my hands
become the wings to protect you
You must believe…
believe that we can be like that in the fairytale
prosperity and happiness is the ending


Let’s write our ending together

""With absolute precision, details of the wombat's sex life were recorded and, surprisingly, it seemed anything but modest," he says.

"It appeared to be a physically demanding process, complete with chasing, biting, grunting and loads of heavy breathing.""

Paul : I like my sex primal.

Almost every single Mandarin speaking girl from Chinese school were listening to this song in single-song-repeat mode, last year. Gosh!
