She, who resonates in my room

Perhaps you will fall in love with her voice as much as i do.

The Best Mistake I've Ever Made
By Joanna Wang


One step too far
All at once i'm falling
Just like a start, i'm burning for you
Thought i could keep myself from feeling this way
I guess that was my first mistake

Cause suddenly i'm walking
Down a dark street to your door
Wanting you is driving' me insane
And now my feet are standing
Where they've never stood before
Guarded by a twist of fate

If i lose myself with you tonight
Fall apart or hold on tight
Wrong or right i wont be afraid
Cause even if my heart should break
You'd be the best mistake i ever made

I'm in your room
Now there's no denying what's in your eyes
When i look at u
Two shadows talking but they don't make a sound
Words have lost their meaning now
And the air has turned electric
Now i know the time is right
To put myself into your hands
And suddenly i'm shaking
As your fingers touch my skin
I dont need to understand

But if i lose myself with you tonight
Fall apart or hold on tight
Wrong or right i wont be afraid
Cause even if my heart should break
You'd be the best mistake i ever made

And if tomorrow proves me wrong
I swear i don't belong
I know i'll carry on
So i will lose myself and bare my soul
Take this chance cause heaven knows
I'm so far gone, my choice is made
And even if my heart should break

When i lose myself with you tonight
Fall apart or hold on tight
Wrong or right i always say
You're the best mistake i ever made
You're the best mistake i ever made
You're the best mistake i ever made

This song is from the melody of one of my old-time favourite - I Love You, originally in Mandarin by David Tao. Though, not a direct translation, she has her way of making this version her own.

I Love You
By Joanna Wang

Say we're together baby
You and me

I can only give my life
And show you all i am
In the breath i breathe
I will promise you my heart
And give all you need
If it takes some time

If you tell me you don't need me anymore
That our love wont last forever
I will ask you for a chance to try again
To make our love a little better

I love you
Say we're together baby
Say we're together, woo
I need you
I need you forever baby
You and me

Say you hardly know
Exactly who i am
So hard to understand
I knew right from the start
The way i felt inside, if you read my mind
If you tell me you don't need me anymore
That our love wont last forever
I will ask you for a chance to try again
To make our love a little better

I love you
Say we're together baby
Say we're together, wooo
I need you
I need you forever baby
You and me

Remember when you used to hold me
Remember when you made me cry
You said you loved me
Oh, you did
Yes, you do

I love you
Say we're together baby
Say we're together, wooo
I need you
I need you forever baby
You and me

Cant get past the similarity to Norah Jones or Corrine Bailey Rae huh. And she's only 19, Taiwanese, who can sweep your feet off with both her English and Chinese songs. I'm not sure if her album is in town already, but if you're looking.. it's called "Start From Here", which is in itself another great song.

All of her own rendition of other people's cover and her originals were removed off her youtube site, but some hardcore fan managed to save some of them here. Enjoy.

I love Joanna Wang too! Can you believe that she's only 17!!!

Its so funny to see her when interview because her father is a very famous musician in Taiwan too and all she did was "lao-kui" the dad.

She looks and sound way beyond her age!
Where did you see the interview?
