Song: I'm getting married

source: song extract from Steven's interview with CRHK Good Morning King

Title: I'm getting married (我要結婚了)
Singer: Steven Ma
Melody: Fong Kwok Hua (方國華)
Lyrics: Mu Xin (母心)
Music arranger: Fong Kwok Hua (方國華)
Supervisor:Randy Chow / Edward Chan / Pakho Chau

Eyes closed, listening to the clock counting down
Trepidation or excitement or uneasiness;  can’t differentiate
Possessing the world's best present
Is to be attired in this white formal wear
Starting out our brand new life journey

Clasping tomorrow’s love ring
Suddenly imbued with an inexplicable bliss
Silently going over my written thoughts, again and again
The vows of eternity

Two persons' future, the unknown world,
Am I able to give you the eternity you so desire?
Accompany you in joined anticipation, change myself for you?
Hand in hand, finishing each day together

Contemplating one day our child
Would look like you or look like me; a wondrous feeling
This feeling of anxiety, this feeling of joy
Accompany me thru this sleepless night

I’m willing for you to give it my all
Let our love be everlasting
Through stormy weathers, through adverse obstacles
Disregarding them all, upholding this courage.

For you, I’m willing to bear it all
Let our tomorrows have no regrets
All the anxieties, all the joy
Are about you in this sleepless night


~~我要結婚了~~
閉上眼睛聽時鐘的倒數
是忐忑興奮不安已經分不清楚
擁有的這世界 最好的禮物
就是穿上這白色禮服
開始我們人生全新的旅途

緊握著明天愛情的指環
莫名的有種忽近忽遠的幸福感
默念著那感言 一遍又一遍
承諾直到永遠

兩個人的未來 未知的世界
我是否 能給你 想要的永遠
陪著你期待 為你去改變
手牽手把這每一天走完

想像著 有一天 我們的孩子
或像你 或像我 奇妙的感覺
這一點不安 這一點喜悅
陪我度過這不眠的夜

我願意 為了你 付出我一切
讓我們的愛情恒久不滅
哪怕有風雨 哪怕有阻險
也不顧所有堅持這勇敢

我願意 為了你 去承受一切
讓我們的明天沒有遺憾
所有的不安 所有的喜悅
在關於你的不眠的夜

閉上眼睛聽時鐘的倒數
是忐忑興奮不安已經分不清楚
默念著那感言 一遍又一遍
承諾直到永遠

默念著那感言 一遍又一遍
承諾直到永遠

Note: I've reservations on the melody and Steven's singing. Maybe it will grow on me after repeated listening.

Add: After repeated listening, the song has grown on me.
Steven's wedding eve song melody has a jazzy tune, much like a bagatelle, with a rather upbeat, relax, languorous feel to it as if Steven is lost in reverie thinking of his beloved wife-to-be and how wonderful their life together would be and how he would be th most wonderful husband to her. I can feel his restrained excitement intermixed with contained nervousness, contented happiness intermixed with nervous anticipation to his next day  wedding day and the beginning of his life with his beloved so for me I do sense the mood of getting married.

  1. I actually quite like this song, I find the song very relaxing. The only thing though is I don't feel much about the mood of getting married... Maybe the MV will change my mind?

    1. "the mood of getting married"
      You mean like the mood in this song from My Fair Lady - "Get me to the church on time". lol! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPfW0Wc5hxI

      And then there is the iconic bride version: "The Wedding Ave Marie" that have the listeners swaying to its dreamy, soothing music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySfBbWxo9QU&list=PLC138A27B8F25F5AD

I can feel his restrained excitement intermixed with contained nervousness to his wedding day and the beginning of his life with his beloved. That being said, I feel his singing is a bit too contrived and deliberate, and the tune not as smooth flowing to draw me in - a few kinks here and there.

    2. Add: restrained excitement, contented happiness intermixed with nervous anticipation for tomorrow so for me I do sense the mood of getting married. He just needs to sell the song more to me - maybe like you said the mv will do sell the song to me.
