Please promise me you'll try

We never said our love was evergreen

But if you can still remember, stop and think of me
但若你能記得,請你想起我
Think of all the things we've shared and seen
想想那些我們曾一起分享經歷的事情
Do'nt think about the way things might has been

Think of me, of me waking, silent and resigned
想想我 想著我甦醒時 默默不語且逆來順受
Imagine me, trying too hard to put you from my mind
想像著 我努力試著忘記你 卻始終不能將你自心中抹去
Recall those days, look back on all those times
回想起那些日子回顧那些時光
Thinks of the things, we'll never do
想想那些我們永遠做不到的事
There will never be a day, when I won't think of you
永遠不會有這麼一天當我不再想念你
