glass of drink in my hand

because you are not by my side.

the North wind blows again

tong jhuo ho pee kio gua tarn li
why did you ask me to wait for you

u ho pee tui thee jiu jua
why do you have to swear upon the sky

that without me you will die?

gua eh sim ee kiing chui
my heart is already shattered

ji uh jio jhiu ba jhui
i can only find numbness from a drink

tong kueh sio bo am meh
to bear it through lonely nights.
