Music Monday: Chyi "Story"

I came to know about this song when I first heard the late Leslie Cheung sang it in the early 90s. I looked for the cassette later and found out that the real singer was Chyi Yu. Story was released back in 1987 and Chyi has recorded 24 albums since 1978. She was born in October 17, 1958.

I memorised the lyric to this day.

I remember quite clearly now when this story happened.
The autumn leaves were floating and measured down to the ground.
Recovering the lake where we use to swim like children
On the sun would dare to shine
That time, we used to be happy
Well, I thought we were
But the truth was that-- you had been longing to leave me
Not daring to tell me
On that precious night watching the lake vaguely conscious
You said: Our story was ending.
Now I'm standing here
No one to wipe away my tears
No one to keep me warm
And no one to walk along with
No one to make me feel
No one to make me while
OH! What am I to do?
I'm standing here alone
It doesn't seem so clear to me
What am I supposed to do about this burning
heart of mine
OH! What am I to do?
Or how should I react?
OH! Tell me please!
The rain was killing the last days of Summer
You had been killing my last breath of love
Since a long time ago
I still don't think I am gonna make it through another love story
You took it all away from me
And there I stand, I knew I was gonna be the .....
The one left behind.
But still I'm watching the lake vaguely conscious
And I know---
My life is ending.
