The Greatest Love Song I Know About

When I read this post by Darly “The Greatest Love Song I Know About”, I thought that it was sweet that someone wrote a love song for her mom. From her post, “Jom Jai Khon Jon…is a Lao song that I found out it was written for my Mama. Someone loved her so much to have written this song for her and she was the one and only Jom Jai Khon Jon for that particular man. Mama was this definition of “Jom Jai Khon Jon. ” Maybe someday there will be a man that would think I am his Jom Jai.”

After reading her post, made me think of this song called “gan lae gan” from the album movie soundtrack, Love of Siam by Q Flure. I really like the song because of the beat and I think love song doesn’t have to be sad or sappy. Even though I didn’t write this song, but I hope this will be an inspiration to Darly.

The lyrics of the song, translated by yours truly,

If I told you that I wrote this song for you…would you believe me? It might not sound as sweet, with beautiful lyrics that will touch you like most songs. But just to let you know that a love song…If one is not in love, it cannot be written; but for you…it was easy for me to write this song.

You might have heard hundreds and thousands love songs before. It might have touched you, but the meaning is the same. If you listen to this song, the song that I wrote for you, you might understand the meaning as to what having each other means.

*Let this be our song, standing side by side as long as possible…only your voice and mine. Just like the meaning of a poetry that when there is love, there is hope, because when your love shines, it’s the light at the end of the tunnel, I have a destiny.

There is so much truth in the meaning of love, and in the past, I’ve been searching for the meaning. But I soon discover when I have you near, if life is a melody, the beat of the music, then you are the most beautiful lyrics that has touched my heart in a special way.

*(repeat) There is the road, let us walk this road together, and only the voice of you and I.

อยากให้รู้ว่าเพลงรัก ถ้าไม่รักก็เขียนไม่ได้
แต่กับเธอคนดีรู้ไหม ฉันเขียนอย่างง่ายดาย

มันอาจจะโดนใจ แต่ก็มีความหมายเหมือนๆกันแต่ถ้าเธอฟังเพลงนี้ เพลงที่เขียนเพื่อเธอเท่านั้น

* ให้มันเป็นเพลงบนทางเดินเคียง ที่จะมีเพียงเสียงเธอกับฉัน
คือทุกครั้งที่รักของเธอส่องใจ ฉันมีปลายทาง

แต่ไม่นานก็เพิ่งรู้ เมื่อทุกครั้งที่มีเธอใกล้
ว่าถ้าชีวิตคือทำนอง เธอก็เป็นดังคำร้องที่เพราะและซึ้งจับใจ

(ซ้ำ *)

มีทางเดินให้เราเดินเคียง และมีเสียงของเธอกับฉัน
มีทางเดินให้เราเดินร่วมเคียง และมีเสียงของเธอกับฉัน


  1. Hi. I love this song. You are right. It is upbeat. And the singer, Q Flure sang very well.

    In fact, I didn’t understand the lyrics at first, but I could feel the emotions of the song… that’s really awesome!
