Without You Song Sung by Karen Mok | 莫文蔚的如果没有你

73

Without You song expresses a sort of longing, missing someone, wishing they were here. The music is by 左安安 (Zuo An An) and lyrics by 李焯雄 (Li Zuo Xiong)

I didn’t know about this song when it was first launched in 2006 because I am not a Karen Mok fan and I have never heard it over the radio. I first heard it sang by Jam Hsiao. It stuck in my head and I found myself humming it as I work.

Lyrics for 如果没有你

hey我真的好想你
现在窗外面又开始下着雨
眼睛干干的有想哭的心情
不知道你现在到底在哪里

hey我真的好想你
太多的情绪没适当的表情
最想说的话我该从何说起
你是否也像我一样在想你

如果没有你
没有过去我不会有伤心
但是有如果还是要爱你

如果没有你
我在哪里又有什么可惜
反正一切来不及
反正没有了自已

hey我真的好想你
不知道你现在到底在哪里
你是否也像我一样在想你

English Translation

Hey, I missed you so
It's starting to rain outside
I feel like crying but I can't
Wondering where you are now

Hey, I missed you so
I find it hard to express my emotions
Where do I start
Do you miss me too?

If you weren't, I won't be sad
But I'll still love you

If you weren't, where would I be
It's too late anyway, I'm lost

hey, I missed you so
Where are you now?
Do you miss me too? 

Without You Song by Jam Hsiao

I like both renditions. How about you?

I first heard this missing you song sang by Jam Hsiao 萧敬腾. It was in the album Love Moments, a collection of songs originally sang by famous female singers. Singapore’s Stephanie Sun and Tanya Chua made the list. Yeah!

It is interesting to see a young male singer cutting an album of songs made famous by leading female artists. Some of the songs are clearly meant to be sung by ladies. But Hsiao’s rendition is so good that I forgot all about that and just enjoyed the experience.
