I would like to share with you my first original song I wrote in 2011 called ‘Emotions’. This is an original song I composed dedicated to my mentor/ piano teacher of 23years. My mentor has cared for me so much and made herself available to me whenever I needed a shoulder to cry on, a person to talk to, a person to guide me in all the obstacles in life. Using the music skills she has taught me, I wrote her this song to express how grateful I am in which simple words “thank you” could not express what I really wanted to say. This is a song that may have taken me 3 months to write, but embraces a whole life time of experiences and feelings within. This is why I called this original song ‘Emotions’. I hope you like my first original song live performance.

Emotions – Piano and lyrics by Lina Chan
10 years ago, my life changed over night,
I was lost, had no one, all alone deep inside.
I looked up to you every time,
You have always been by my side,
I am who I am cause of you,
You have made my dreams come true.
Promise I’d be strong every time,
Won’t let anyone make me cry,
You have always been here for me,
Giving me the guidance I need.
