時の流れに身をまかせ(let time go by)Teresa Teng + Jackie Chan

Thanks to technology, even Teresa passed away over 10 years ago at 42, Jackie could still perform this duet with her... btw, Teresa and Jackie were rumoured to be lovers when Teresa was studying in San Fran..(sorry, the video must be confusing a lot of people, it is in Mandarin, but the original version is in Japanese, sung by Teresa too)




If I had not met you
What would I be doing?
Leading an average life? Loving just an average guy?

Spending every day of my life with you
Colored by your love
We only live once
So even if I have to give up everything
I don't even care
As long as you are with me
Because you are the only person
I can fall in love with


If you no longer loved me
I would not have tomorrow
I would not be able to live on memories alone
Spending everyday of my life with you
Cuddling tenderly
even if I have to give up my life
It won't matter
As long as you are with me
Because you are the only person I can see
having a future with

Spending every day of my life with you
Colored by your love
We only live once
So even if I have to give up everything
I don't even care
As long as you are beside me
Because you are the only person
I can fall in love with

もしもあなたと 会えずにいたら
私は何を してたでしょうか
平凡だけど 誰かを愛し 
普通の暮らし してたでしょうか
時の流れに 身をまかせ
あなたの色に 染められ
一度の人生 それさえ
捨てることも かなわない
だから お願い そばに置いてね
今は あなたしか 愛せない

もしも あなたに 嫌われたなら
明日と言う日 なくしてしまうわ
約束なんか いらないけれど
想い出だけじゃ 生きてゆけない
時の流れに 身をまかせ
あなたの胸に 寄り添い
きれいになれた それだけで
いのちさえも いらないわ
だから お願い そばに置いてね
今はあなたしか 見えないの
時の流れに 身をまかせ
あなたの色に 染められ
一度の人生 それさえ
捨てることも かなわない
だから お願い そばに置いてね
今は あなたしか 愛せない

Thank you very much for showing this.

I love this song. It's one of those perfect song for Teresa Teng's voice. For me, one of the best cover version is from Faye Wong. She sang at one of HK music award show ten years ago, I think.

Jackie Chan's voice is heavily digital modify in this version, I think. It doesn't not that good and it's not smooth from section to section. He does look good in the MV though.

An almost a love story is one of the best HK movie in term of writing and directing. The story is cleverly tribute to Teresa Teng as well.

yeah.. though I am not a big fan of Teresa, I do love all her Japanese songs.. I think she was most beautiful during the time she was in Japan.. esp at one point, she was wearing very very short hair, almost like a boy.
