After his divorce headlines hit the Chinese entertainment industry last year , Leon Lai has been keeping a low-profile and shuns away from the public. In October last year, Leon and Gaile Lok released a statement stating that they had broken up due to irreconcilable differences in life philosophies.
Yesterday, the heavenly king released his new song, I can forget you <我可以忘記你>. As the love ballad is released after his separation from ex-wife, one can’t help but wonders if the song is a reflection of his emotions.
The lyrics seem to imply his remorse over the failed relationship. “You are the one paying for the hurt, and I am the one who is selfish and cruel…..”
“You peacefully move on and I am quietly surviving” – Are the lyrics describing the ex-couple’s current situation?
Leon also did a self-mockery and expressed his helplessness in his failed relationship. He sang, “I have never loved you. I love myself most. I used love to satisfy my curiosity. I only have the guts to play games. Sorry, please do not mind.”
“We both did not have the chance to get sad for bidding goodbye. Why were we always feeling so tired? Why did we walk through the road getting so despondent…..”
Lastly, Leon sang about starting afresh and put the past behind him. “I have never loved you. I only love missing you. I can forget you, but I want to protect this secret more.”
What secret does Leon want to protect?
