My video – Don’t leave me

A video for

13-07

I used a Vietnamese song for this video, of course there’s an English subtitle as usual.
This’s an old song; I’ve heard it hundreds time before, but perhaps because it’s old so I didn’t remember that it does exist. And when I was hopelessly finding an English song for the video, it hit my ears. Then the image of Oscar is shouting “André, are you leaving me behind?” flashed in my head and I said: “this’s it, this’s the song I’m looking for!”
I tried to translate all the sentences as beautiful as possible, but it’s hard. Even if you consider the lyrics in the literal sense, they have more than one meaning, let alone figurative sense. Anyway, here’re my lyrics:

Don’t leave me

Don’t leave me tonight when the moon rises high above
Don’t leave me in this everlasting darkness
The loneliness grows bigger in the lonely night
My heart yearns for your love.

Don’t leave me tonight please say that you will stay
Don’t leave me alone in this dreadful place
Hold me tight so that I know you’re here with me
And again tell me that you love me.

My tears fall in the dark
When I’m listening to the silence of the night
Missing the sound of your heartbeat, the sound which sings me to sleep
My life was gloomy and you came like a candle lit in the night
The candle lightened my heart
The candle awakened my soul.

Don’t leave me tonight, the old town is sleeping
Don’t leave me in this everlasting darkness
Love me tonight, forget about tomorrow
Don’t leave me, don’t leave me tonight.

Hold me tight so that I know you’re here with me
And again tell me that you love me.
Love me tonight, forget about tomorrow
Don’t leave me, don’t leave me tonight.

And here’re original lyrics and the word-by-word-translation

Đừng xa em đêm nay

Composer: Đức Huy

Don’t leave me tonight

(Meaning translation)

Đừng xa em đêm nay khi bóng trăng qua hàng cây
Đừng xa em đêm nay, đêm rất dài
Vòng tay em cô đơn, đêm khuya vắng nghe buồn hơn
Con tim em khát khao yêu thương.—
Don’t leave me tonight when the moon shadow passes over the trees
Don’t leave me tonight, the night is so long
My arms are lonely, the silence night sounds sadder
My heart yearns for love.—
Đừng xa em đêm nay, hãy nói anh sẽ ở đây
Đừng để em một mình nơi chốn này
Hãy ôm em trong tay cho em biết anh gần em
Và hãy nói anh vẫn yêu em.—
Don’t leave me tonight please say that you will stay here
Don’t leave me alone in this place
Please hold me in your arms let me know that you’re near me
And please say that you still love me.—
Giọt nước mắt nào đổ trong bóng tối
Khi nằm lắng nghe tiếng đêm, lắng nghe tiếng đêm
Nghe nhịp đập con tim ru em giấc ngủ yên.
Đời em vắng lạnh và anh đã đến như ngọn nến trong bóng đêm,
Nến trong bóng đêm soi vào tim em
Những xao xuyến đã ngủ quên.—
What teardrop has fallen in the dark
While lying listening to the sound of the night, listening to the sound of the night
Listening to the heartbeat got me into a peaceful sleep
My life was frozen and empty then you came like a candle is lit in the night
The candle in the night lightened my heart
Those feelings had been forgotten.—
Đừng xa em đêm nay, khu phố quen đã ngủ say
Đừng xa em đêm nay, đêm rất dài
Hãy yêu em đêm nay cho quên hết đi ngày mai
Đừng xa em, đừng xa em đêm nay.—
Don’t leave me tonight, the old town is sleeping deeply
Don’t leave me tonight, the night is so long
Please love me tonight let’s forget about tomorrow
Don’t leave me, don’t leave me tonight.—
Hãy ôm em trong tay cho em biết anh gần em
Và hãy nói anh vẫn yêu em
Hãy yêu em đêm nay cho quên hết đi ngày mai
Đừng xa em, đừng xa em đêm nay.
Please hold me in your arms let me know that you’re near me
And please say that you still love me.
Please love me tonight let’s forget about tomorrow
Don’t leave me, don’t leave me tonight.
