Lyrics

Ten thousand sorrows… 

English lyrics (by Napandita Rithipol, Mac)

1 - The chorus of ten thousand sorrows 

The melody of the newest but  final song 

The song of the poor lamenting over regrets and sorrows 

Sorry for truthful feelings and for the name of love. 

 

2-The song of sorrows becoming one of the blessings

As a gift for your wedding day 

Recounting over the senseless story 

The regretful and wavering love story

 

3- I have to sever the feeling of ten thousand sorrows

Even it’s the end of my life, I would accept; 

However, darling, please have a faithful love 

No change of heart as you did with our love. 

 

4. The chorus of sorrows on the day of our separation

The tears whispering good-bye to the times of romance 

Good-bye to all the stories and sweet loving words 

Good-bye to our hope and dreams to cross together the bridge of life
