“Hong Kong Bay (Love Without Pain)”
Words & Music: Roxanne Seeman & Billie Hughes

Oh, the wind across the Hong Kong Bay
The memories of you today
Sometimes they fold out like a fan
A Chinese view of who I am

Sailing on this sea of life
I look back and I’ve paid the price
The glamour and the wounds sustained
What is love without the pain

What is love without the pain
The more I suffer, it becomes plain
I climb this mountain to see the sky
I cry a fountain, you are why

What is love without the pain
If each day is just the same
This suffering inside my soul
(What) makes this pleasure so much more

Now if I should turn away
And walk the narrow path and stay
I think that I might go insane
I can’t feel love without pain

What’s the sea without the wind
Or the lover without the friend
In the emptiness I scream
I’d rather die than have no dream/Where is love I can believe

What is love without the pain
To see the sun and not know rain
What’s the sea without the wind
An emptiness you know again

What is love without the pain
If each day is just the same
This suffering inside my soul
(What) makes this/the pleasure so much more

Oh, the wind across the Hong Kong Bay
The memories of you today
Sometimes they fold out like a fan
A Chinese view of who I am

I’m sailing on this sea of life
I look back and I’ve paid the price
Now what’s the sea without the wind
Or the lover without the friend

second chorus

Sailing on this sea of life (yeah yeah yeah)
Oh, the wind across the Hong Kong Bay
The memories of you today…
