Born Rich [2009 TVB Drama] Theme Songs

Besides the background song insert O Come, O Come, Emmanual by Tiu De Haan in Born Rich, I love the opening theme song of Born Rich (富貴門) by Gallen Lo called On the Verge of Eternity. I don't know Chinese so well so I cannot translate the song word for word but the gist of it is that he (Yatming) is very confused of what is real, what is fake and what is destined to be and how he had to forgo love for wealth and how, after all his efforts, everything came to naught.

On the Verge of Eternity (差一剎的地老天荒) by Gallen Lo (羅嘉良)

The closing theme, Two Rounds of Life (兩生關) by Kay Tse (謝安琪) is an even sadder song. It was sung in the perspective of Rene (Anita Yuen), which questions why God has tied her fate together with Yatming and even though she doesn't know him that well, she has to witness the painful downfall of Yatming. She knows the poor route he has chosen to take yet she could not do anything to stop him. Her love for him is not enough to bring him back to righteousness and she regrets to the end of her life.
