sword vs sword

Li Mu Bai: you don't deserve the Green Destiny.

Jen: what do you want from me?!
Li Mu Bai: what i've always wanted, to teach you.

Shu Lien: i don't have the heart (to kill her).

in the kiln
Li Mu Bai: you've been drugged...

a poisoned needle
Shu Lien: you can't die!...

there exists an antidote...


Li Mu Bai: i'd rather be a ghost, drifting by your side as a condemned soul, than entering heaven without you...

... ...

Shu Lien: whatever path you take in this life, be true to yourself.

at Wudan Mountain

if the sky opened up for me
and the mountains disappeared
if the seas ran dry, turned to dust
and the sun refused to rise
I would still find my way
by the light I see in your eyes
the world I know fades away
but you stay

[as the earth reclaims its due]
[and the cycle starts anew]
[we'll stay, always]
in the love that we have shared before time

if the years take away
every memory that I have
I would still know the way
that would lead me back to your side

the north star may die
but the light that I see in your eyes
will burn there always
lit by the love we have shared before time

[when the forest turns to jade]
[and the stories that we've made]
[dissolve away]
one shining light will still remain

[when we shed our earthly skin]
[and when our real life begins]
[there'll be no shame]
just the love that we have made before time
