Hmong Lyrics Eng Translation
Departing for a day feels like departing for a month
Departing for a month feels like year
During the years that you’ve gone away
I have not heard any news or words about you
Don’t know if you’re better off now, or worse than before

Long after you the day you left me
You probably have a wife and many children now
Living your life with sunny skies
Blessed with many sons and grandchildren
You probably don’t even think about me anymore

As for me, I live a lonely and sad life
Because I married someone who isn’t loving
That’s why I now miss you, my Hmong guy (LOL)
That’s why I’ve sent you a message to tell you
If I knew about this then, I would’ve married you

[If I had married you…]
My heart won’t feel so lonely, like this
I won’t have to miss you this much
I won’t be so stressed out
I want to tell you that I miss you

As for me, I live a lonely and sad life
Because I married someone who isn’t loving
That’s why I now miss you, nice Hmong guy (LOL!!)
That’s why I’ve sent you a message to tell you
If I knew about this then, I would’ve married you

(If I married you…)
My heart won’t feel so lonely, like this
I won’t have to miss you this much
I won’t be so stressed out
I want to tell you that I miss you
I want to tell you that I miss you

Moral: (In the girl version) She misses her ex boyfriend because he loved her so much, but he left her. She doesn’t know where he is or how he’s living his live, but because she is living a bad marriage, she longs for her ex.
