khraiM baangM khohnM kheeuyM baawkL waaF rakH chanR maakF maaiM
Some have told me that they love me very much.
dtaaeL phaawM naanM bpaiM thamM maiM jaakL rakH glaaiM bpenM gliiatL
But, as time went on, why did love change to hate?
gaawF bpenM khohnM deeM gaawF bpenM khohnM meeM khwaamM fanR
To be a good person you need to be a dreamer.
laaeoH thamM maiM khohnM yaangL chanR theungR maiF meeM khraiM sohnR jaiM
Then why is that that no one is interested in someone like me.
ก็มีเงินทอง ก็มีรถเก๋งคันใหญ่
gaawF meeM ngernM thaawngM gaawF meeM rohtH gengR khanM yaiL
[I] am wealthy and have a big car.
dtaaeL phaaiM naiM jaiM thamM maiM maiF henR meeM khamM dtaawpL
But in my heart I wonder why [I] can’t see an answer.
โอ้ หว่าย ว๊าย ว๊าย ว๊าย
o:hF waaiL waaiH waaiH waaiH
Oh, why, why, why, why?
khwaamM sookL manM haaiR bpaiM dtangF dtaaeL dtaawnM naiR
When was it that happiness escaped me?
สุขาอยู่หนใด ความงดงามอยู่ที่ใด
sooL khaaR yuuL hohnR daiM khwaamM ngohtH ngaamM yuuL theeF daiM
Where is happiness; where is beauty?
มันซ่อนอยู่ที่ใคร ซ่อนอยู่ที่ใคร
manM saawnF yuuL theeF khraiM saawnF yuuL theeF khraiM
In whom are they hidden; in whom are they hidden?
ชีวิตที่ต้องการ สิ่งที่ใจเราต้องการ
cheeM witH theeF dtawngF gaanM singL theeF jaiM raoM dtawngF gaanM
My life wants what my heart desires.
มันซ่อนอยู่ที่ใด ซ่อนอยู่ที่ใด ซ่อนอยู่ที่ใด
manM saawnF yuuL theeF daiM saawnF yuuL theeF daiM saawnF yuuL theeF daiM
Where is it hidden; where is it concealed?
khraiM baangM khohnM kheeuyM baawkL waaF chanR dtawngF roonF yaiL
Some have told me I have to get on top.
ต้องเดินนำใคร ต้องไปเป็นคนที่เหนือกว่า
dtawngF deernM namM khraiM dtawngF bpaiM bpenM khohnM theeF neuuaR gwaaL
[I] need to take the lead, be the one who goes first.
ต้องเป็นคนดัง ต้องเป็นคนมีความหมาย
dtawngF bpenM khohnM dangM dtawngF bpenM khohnM meeM khwaamM maaiR
[I] have to be the one who speaks out, the one who has purpose.
laaeoH dtawngF lohngM thoonM thaoF raiM theungR jaL meeM khraiM hanR maawngM
And, I how much of an effort need I make so that people will give me a second look?
ต้องออกเดินทาง ต้องออกไปพบโลกกว้างไกล
dtawngF aawkL deernM thaangM dtawngF aawkL bpaiM phohpH lo:hkF gwaangF glaiM
[I] need to travel; [I] need to confront the wider world.
dtawngF deernM thaangM bpaiM thaoF raiM jeungM phohpH juuhrM khamM dtaawpL
How far do [I] need to go to find the answer?
