I finally watched that movie 881 and i found this song among the OST take has a very interesting lyrics. It was taken from an original song known as “最后一口气” (the last breath) and it was in Hokkien, a Chinese dialect. The original version does not sound like this song. The singer has replaced the lyrics.

The lyrics contains very simple words, but yet it convey a very deep emotion and meaning.

It was sang by Kelvin Tan, and I think its very well sung. So I decided to add it here.

I guess i am the first person who tried to pen the lyrics down, I did a Google for the lyrics and there was no sites with it.

So I did it, listening to the song and penning down the lyrics. Its human to err , so feel free to correct the lyrics by adding comments at the bottom. 

But I would like to dedicate this to my friends who are unable to let go of their past relationships. May they not hold on to their past and move on with their lives.

The English Translation are as follow

Stanza 1:
I choose to walk together with you
not knowing how dark and dreary the path is.  
The marks on our faces, 
proclaiming the times we spent,
with endless stories to share.  

Stanza 2
I became a wanderer in life because of you ,
made many turns in life.
Opening the windows of memories, 
of us in the beginning ,
Trying hard to conceal sadness,
by feigning acceptance to destiny.

Chorus
Who is that you are reminiscing about?
That you often glance back here as we walked.  
Who promised to wait for you here?
That you choose to linger and not move on.

Repeat (Stanza 2)
Repeat (Chorus)
Repeat (Chorus)

Preventing you from moving on with life.
If you have loved him, you will never regret like this.
