There's quite a few lost in translation of Vietnamese language into English.  Bolero songs are more poetic so it's not best to translate it literally.  Plus the voice of the singer is too whiny. 

Vpop would be a better choice to translate to English because it is more in tune with common speech and perhaps complement with more modern instruments.  I think if a more well known US artist would cover this song it would make it well into the charts.
