Discography





“Set Forth”

The title track, “Set Forth”, refers to both her journey as well as the perspectives she would like you to hear. This song is also the theme song for a Chinese Play “Sole Mate”, jointly produced by The ETCeteras and Ocean Butterflies.

"Set Forth" is the most precious X'mas gift I ever received so far from my talented best friend, the Runaway Pianist, song writer & my producer, Mr. Peng Chi Sheng. A million thanks to him for entrusting his beautiful creation to me.

Lyrics in Chinese:
我们都曾在漆黑的夜 一直等到天亮
也同样淋着傾盆大雨 反而看清方向
一个人飘荡 让我们慢慢坚强
学会了为自己 盖被后说晚安

曾以为我们过于脆弱 所以容易受伤
却发现伤痛是种本能 有了代表正常
提醒着我们 去检讨 不能重犯
眼泪折射的光 让心能被释放

现在出发 计算好征服今天的步伐
沉溺回忆也不能把昨天留下 现实不该打岔
就倾听 它为你 安排幸福计划

现在出发 别忘了这个世界那么宽大
总会在某个角落 每一个渴望 都有正确解答
风景的变换为了在对的一颗心 住下

我不必反反复复羡慕 谁的地久天长
也不必楚楚可怜搬演 谁的肝肠寸断
只要你愿意 就陪我敞开心房
你会细细体会 还是一起飞翔

现在出发 计算好征服今天的步伐
沉溺回忆也不能把昨天留下 现实不该打岔
就倾听 它为你 安排幸福计划

现在出发 别忘了这个世界那么宽大
总会在某个角落 每一个渴望 都有正确解答
风景的变换为了在对的一颗心 住下
漫长的等待为了 证明对的缘分 无价

“(I’m) Perfectly Timed”

Because everything happens in its own time – fate is never late once we
disregard the unnecessary competition.

English Lyrics (Translated): -
Waiting for happiness to arrive
Yet how does one grasp that which is always late
I’ll just allow my longing its frantic search
Been there, done that; there’re some people I should forget

Spending my time, watching the days go by
Wondering what’s the worth of “till the end of time”?
I’ll indulge in my memories and let them roam freely
Like it has crossed my mind if the faraway him is having a life better than mine
Well, some words are best left unsaid

As lovers come and go in the crowd, I seek yet remain lost
Why bother, better late than never
Who’s to say what would last forever

I hope for the right time, the right place and the right person, but confusion surrounds
I stumble along, and have thought of escaping
But only Heaven knows the perfect timing
The good things in life come habitually late
Would still happen, like a wondrous accident, through serendipity.

“Good Old Days”

Transports the listener back into Sia Yeun’s childhood. This is also Sia Yeun’s first attempt in writing song lyrics, and in Hokkien dialect.

Lyrics in Chinese:
缕缕纸鹤 系上虔诚
未说出的话 对望眼神
岁月年轮 计算人生 皆无可奈何

一思回首 一眼尽头
时间匆匆 回忆却没走
那些时光啊~ 快乐很轻松“请勿忘初衷”

还记得 那一天 我们 荡秋千 乘着风
徘徊在希望和勇敢中
大世界 冒险 追新谣 唱(出)的梦
经历了时间才让人感动
当时同桌 年少轮廓 是否熟悉依旧

闽南语
回头望 囝仔时 𨑨迌 走相掠 五脚基
田嬰啊 跟风飞 自由去飞 快乐童年 一切随缘

龙头游戏场的雨天 轻轻怀念着的从前
蜻蜓点水面 再见的童年

闽南语
回头望 囝仔时 𨑨迌 走相掠 五脚基
这快乐童年 往事如烟 希望有缘 感情袂变
龙头游戏场的雨天 滴进了心底的思念
蜻蜓点水面 淡淡的重现 我的童年
淡淡卻重現 再見童年

闽南语备注:
(1) 田嬰 (读:tshân-inn谐音: 蚕一) = 蜻蜓
(2) 袂 (读:buay)= 不会

“Flutter” (featuring Brian Ng 黄超群)

Describes the state of two hearts as they approach. Sub theme song for Chinese Play “Sole Mate”. Featuring Brian Ng.

Lyrics in Chinese:
(女) 酒杯透着光 (男) 能否看穿
(女) 我踏上双红鞋 在爱里旋转 (男) 谁在说谎
(女) 绕着弯 心在慌 片段为谁回荡 (男) 谁能回到
(女) 谁习惯 谁变样 (合) 开始爱 总是讨好

(男) 风雨中喧哗 (女)谁能平凡
(男) 就算浪漫消散 爱只要坚强 (女) 如果勉强
(男) 交换时间步伐 替换了信仰 (女) 同化希望
(合) 是否能调适吻合 (男) 自己的另一半 (女) 完成我的一半

(合) 说不完的情话 (谁还要欲盖弥彰)
(合) 现实中的童话 (为了爱说服真相)
(合) 白色的谎 布满鲜花 美得不忍揭穿 心荡漾
(合) 说不完的情话 (谁还要欲盖弥彰)
(合) 现实中的童话 (为了爱说服真相)
(合) 反复珍藏 觉醒的感伤

(合) 谁荡漾 俯视着希望
(合) 谁荡漾 悬着个愿望
(合) 爱情里人各式各样 在游晃
(合) 荡~荡一荡 不舍的灿烂 荡一荡 沉溺的迷惘
(合) 若我爱上就不怕 受点伤
