    Hi dancinggirl, this upfront I do not understand chinese, and I only can do the same as you: googling. This actually turned out difficult. "Ballroom Stars" in a compilation, you have to find out on which CD the title originally was published. And Tong Li seems to be rather a busy artist.

    -One source lists "Lost in Love" on the CD "In March" from 2007. Track # 13.
    -Another source (with lyrics) does not list the CD "In March" at all, but therefor a CD with almost the same cover called "March Fireworks" also from 2007. But the track "Lost in Love" is missing on the latter CD.

    Think you have to go through the lists, perhaps the song got different names .

    All the best

    i might be able to help, but will need to hear the song first!

    have tried to look for a clip of it online. could only find one on musichutch. sorry can't post links yet, it's musichutch songid 55619. if that's the right song, i could translate it (roughly) for you.

  5. I'm bilingual, and if it's the song opendoor posted, here's a quick translation. It's quite a simple song, but I just did it roughly and tried not to butcher the imagery too much. Maybe bluebereft or someone else can clean it up for me:

    "In my heart, there exists a you
    You came silently, and left swiftly
    Perhaps your heart no longer thinks of me?
    Leaving me yearning and something here (I can't catch the last word... but it says it's hard to something...)

    Please tell me, tell me quick
    Why have [you] left without any news?
    Please tell me, tell me quick
    Don't let time leave a scar in vain"

    And it just repeats itself (or parts thereof) a couple of times.

    that looks about right! let me give it a shot.

    In my heart
    Exists a mystery
    You quietly come, and swiftly leave
    Perhaps your heart no longer feels for me
    Leaving me lovesick and perturbed (not at peace)

    Please tell me, quick, tell me
    Why have you left me without any news (at all)?
    Please tell me, quick, tell me
    Don't let the years leave only traces behind

    In my heart
    Exists a mystery
    You quietly come, and swiftly leave
    Perhaps your heart no longer feels for me
    Leaving me lovesick and perturbed

    Please tell me, quick, tell me
    Don't let the years leave only traces behind

    In my heart
    Exists a mystery
    You quietly come, and swiftly leave
    Perhaps your heart no longer feels for me
    Leaving me lovesick and perturbed
