13.Love Is A Many Splendered Thing 慕情(ぼじょう) 生死戀

"Love is a many splendored thing"(慕情)




Love is a many splendor thing

It's the April rose that only grows

in the early spring

Love is Nature's way of giving

A reason to be living

The golden crown that makes a man a king

Once, on a high and windy hill

In the morning mist two lovers kissed

and the world stood still

Then your fingers touched my silent heart

And taught it how to sing

Yes, true love's a many-splendor thing.
