《凉凉》Lyric

Night falls, growing cold
入夜渐微凉
rùyè jiàn wēi liáng

Who cares about the petals
繁花落地成霜
fánhuā luòdì chéng shuāng

From afar you behold
你在远方眺望
nǐ zài yuǎnfāng tiàowàng

With the whole day idled
耗尽所有暮光
hào jìn suǒyǒu mù guāng

Hard we’ve tried, fail to let go
不思量自难相忘
bù sīliang zì nàn xiāng wàng

Fallen blossoms
夭夭桃花凉
yāo yāo táohuā liáng

Wonder what has happened
前世你怎舍下
qiánshì nǐ zěn shěxià

As if lost in an ocean
这一海心茫茫
zhè yī hǎi xīn mángmáng

You feign a smile, although you are heart-broken
还故作不痛不痒不牵强
hái gù zuò bù tòng bù yǎng bù qiānqiǎng

What an illusion
都是假象
dōu shì jiǎxiàng

If beauty must come with twist of fate
凉凉天意潋滟一身花色
liáng liáng tiānyì liàn yàn yīshēn huāsè

I’d rather be plain with no pain
落入凡尘伤情着我
luò rù fánchén shāng qíngzhe wǒ

Life is short, yet love I’ll still await
生劫易渡情劫难了
shēng jié yì dù qíng jiénànle

Despite the fact that you’ve left me with so much hate
折旧的心还有几分前生的恨
zhéjiù de xīn hái yǒu jǐ fēn qián shēng de hèn

You’ve left me with so much hate
还有几分前生的恨
hái yǒu jǐ fēn qián shēng de hèn

Thinking our past, present, future chills me
凉凉三生三世恍然如梦
liáng liáng sān shēng sānshì huǎngrán rú mèng

With time fleeting, tears cease to be
须臾的年风干泪痕
xūyú de nián fēnggān lèihén

If you no longer prize our memory
若是回忆不能再相认
ruòshì huíyì bùnéng zài xiāng rèn

Then let us both go free
就让情分落九尘
jiù ràng qíng fèn luò jiǔ chén

However chilly the journey will be
凉凉十里何时还会春盛
liáng liáng shílǐ hé shí hái huì chūn shèng

May I expect another spring
又见树下一盏风存
yòu jiàn shù xià yī zhǎn fēng cún

Beauty always covers cruelty
落花有意流水无情
luòhuā yǒuyì liúshuǐ wúqíng

Don’t let the world’s clamour spoil simplicity
别让恩怨爱恨凉透那花的纯
bié ràng ēnyuàn ài hèn liáng tòu nà huā de chún

You are my destiny
吾生愿牵尘
wúshēng yuàn qiān chén
