Fairytale/Tong Hua (English)

This song may sound rather cheesy by itself, but in the context of the music video's story about a terminally ill girl, the irony of the theme "happily ever after" is pretty sweet.

Tong Hua (Fairytale) by Guang Liang [English Version]


The trans-lyrics were mashed/edited from a variety of sources I found:
Spoiler: LYRICS • show
--------------------------------------------------
Forgot how long it's been
Since I last saw you
And have you tell me your favourite story

I've thought for a long time
I began to worry
Thought that perhaps I did something wrong again

You cried and came to me
Saying fairytales are all just lies
There's no way I could be your prince

But what if I told you that
Ever since you gave me your hand
Stars in my sky began to shine


I want to be, from your fantasy,
the angel that you used to love
Spread my arms, be my wings to hold you near
You have to believe,
believe that we will be just like a fairytale
You and I, we'll end it happily

I will become, from your fantasy,
the angel that you used to love
Spread my arms, be my wings to hold you near
You have to believe,
believe that we will be just like a fairytale
You and I, we'll end it happily


You have to believe,
believe that we will be just like a fairytale
You and I, we'll end it happily

This isn't his, per se, it's a Chinese song I heard not too long ago, but I think I helped with the Chinese on it (no wait, that was Kite...)

That question was supposed to be for the other songs that he made.

The song is still good, and now I just can't get it out of my mind.

Like it. :) Didn't know the original, but the melody is really beautiful and you sang it pretty well.

Wanna learn Chinese.   :'(
