In my heart, spring's flowers bloom
I wait for my sparrow to slowly come home
Frog by the river, it goes gugua gugua
Look beneath the grass and lotus leaves

Clouds on the horizon keep growing and growing
Just like cotton candy, I want to eat them up
Hibernating people once again start to go jiji and zhazha
You see, spring is back, how did it come back?

Clouds on the horizon keep growing and growing
Just like cotton candy, I want to eat them up
Hibernating people one again start to go jiji and zhazha
You see, spring is back, how did it come back?

Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (lang li ge lang li ge lang li ge lang)
Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (lang li ge lang li ge lang li ge lang)
Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (get spruced up and go find some girls)
That's beng beng guang guang dang dang bang bang guang guang (sound of cooking with wok)

Spring returns, little sparrows fly back from the south
Spring returns, peach blossoms, apricot blossoms, pear blossoms all bloom; little bees also come out to collect nectar
Spring has returned, the spring wind blows (it goes huhu), the spring rain falls (it goes shasha)
Little grasses become green, willow tree grows soft sprouts, willow tree grows soft sprouts

What is this song called? It's called Spring Returns!
What is this song called? It's called Spring Returns!

Title: 春来了
Artist: 南无

Chinese lyrics

我的心里盛开了春天的花
我等我的燕子它慢慢回家
河边的青蛙它在咕呱咕呱
你看青草荷叶下

天边的白云变得越来越大
就像是棉花糖我要将它吃下
冬眠的人儿又开始叽叽又喳喳
你看春天又来了,怎么又来了

天边的白云变得越来越大
就像是棉花糖我要将它吃下
冬眠的人儿又开始叽叽又喳喳
你看春天又来了,怎么又来了

你看春天里那个百花香(啷哩个浪哩个浪里个浪)
你看春天里那个百花香(啷哩个浪哩个浪里个浪)
你看春天里那个百花香(打扮好了去找姑娘)
那是嘣嘣咣咣当当梆梆咣咣

春天来了,小燕子从南方飞回来了
春天来了,桃花杏花梨花都开了,小蜜蜂也出来采蜜了
春天来了,春风呼呼地吹,春雨沙沙地下
小草绿了,柳树也长出了嫩芽,柳树也长出了嫩芽

这歌儿叫什么?叫春来了!
这歌儿叫什么?叫春来了!

Ever since the day I started forming memories
I’ve lived like a damn good-for-nothing
Suck at studying, can’t win at fighting
Tell me what I’m supposed to do
I go home, old man tells me
You gotta study hard, be an upright person
If you’ve got nothing better to do, watch the news, pay attention to national issues
When you graduate, take the civil service exam
After returning to my room, I thought it over
Can’t help but feel that this isn’t appropriate
I’m an artsy dude, why become a civil servant?
I’ve got a dream I want to achieve
Fast forward 20-some years, graduated from college
Then I found out the ground is covered with artsy dudes
I can only take up my guitar, bravely face life
In my heart, quietly say to myself

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me

People don’t dare believe how fast time goes by
They say that the end of the world is near
I still want to marry a girl, give myself to the revolution
Tell me is this possible?
Look at the post-80s generation, the so-called miserable youths
Working their asses off for houses and cars
Salaries aren’t increasing, cost of living goes up faster than Liu Xiang
Who decided that my dad isn’t Li Gang?

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me
My youth is gone, it took away my dreams
I wish that when I raise my head, what I see is the chalk thrown at me by the teacher
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my faith
Another 30 years and we’ve all got white hairs
Let’s continue screaming rock ‘n’ roll

Chinese lyrics

从我记事的那一天起
我就活的他妈像个孙子
学习学不好,打架还打不过人
你说这叫我怎么整
回到家里,老爷子对我说
你要好好学习,好好做人
没事也看看新闻,也关心国家的事
将来毕业咱考个公务员
回到屋里,咱是想了又想
总觉得这个事它不靠谱
咱一个文艺青年,靠什么公务员
咱还有梦想他要去实现
一晃二十几年,大学就毕了业
才发现满地都是文艺青年
咱只能抱着吉他,勇敢地面对生活
在心里悄悄地对自己说

老子的青春走了,他带走了我的童年
想起了小时候,我们在柳树上 逮个天牛还要干个仗
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的回忆
你看那阳光下,在池塘边,精着钩子的就是老子

时光快的让人就不敢想
传说世界末日就要来啦
咱还想娶个媳妇,把自己献给革命
你说这事它能实现吗
看看八零后,所谓的苦逼青年
都在为了房子车子奋斗着
工资不见涨,物价它赛刘翔地跑
你说谁叫咱爹不是李刚

老子的青春走了,他带走了我的童年
想起了小时候,我们在柳树上 逮个天牛还要干个仗
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的回忆
你看那阳光下,在池塘边,精着钩子的就是老子
老子的青春走了,他带走了我的梦想
多想抬起头,我看到的 是老师丢来的粉笔头
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的信仰
再过三十年我们都已白头
我们继续高喊rock 'n' roll

It’s time to attend the masquerade ball
Use a mask to cover your face
Look upon the center of the dance floor
Release your inner fantasy

It’s time to attend the masquerade ball
Dress hems rise up in the midst of desire
She's the star of tonight
Until she completely exhausts her strength

It’s time to attend the masquerade ball
Just spin in solitude like this
Burn up all my frenzy
Lose sight of the way to happiness

It’s time to leave the masquerade ball
Strangers start to get weary
You try to change your steps
But there are no more familiar dances

It’s time to leave the masquerade ball
There’s a person in the corner sobbing
She doesn’t have pretty dance shoes
And no way to close her eyes

It’s time to leave the masquerade ball
Go search for the vast lake
Over there is the tranquil lake surface
Can see myself in the reflection
Where’s the tranquil lake surface
Where I can see myself in reflection?

Title: 化妆舞会
Artist: 张羿凡

Translation: https://www.notion.so/7dfb18d7fe7340ca8ebbcf87be82a04e

Chinese lyrics

快参加化妆舞会吧
用面具遮住了脸庞
眼望那舞池的中央
释放你心中的幻想

快参加化妆舞会吧
裙角在欲望中飞扬
她是今晚的主角
直到耗尽她最后的力量

快参加化妆舞会吧
就这样孤独地旋转
燃烧我所有的疯狂
迷失了幸福的方向

快离开化妆舞会吧
陌生的人们开始厌倦
你试着变换着脚步
却再没有熟悉的舞蹈

快离开化妆舞会吧
有人在角落中哭泣
她没有漂亮的舞鞋
也无法闭上她的眼

快离开化妆舞会吧
去寻找广阔的湖泊
那里有平静的湖面
能看到倒影中的我
哪里有平静的湖面
能看到倒影中的我

We're all infected by the virus
No one needs a face mask anymore
In February of early spring, on the grass
We hold a farewell gathering

Fine wine and delicacies have already been prepared
And we can't do without music
From the accordion's keys flow
An elegant viral waltz

We smile and look at each other
We hold each other and delicately start the dance
Go towards the front (there's really no front)
Glide into effortless, graceful dance steps

Chinese lyrics

我们都感染了病毒
没有人再需要口罩
在早春二月的草地上
举行为了告别的聚会

美酒佳肴已准备好
音乐又怎能不出现
手风琴的按键里流出了
一首优美的病毒华尔兹

我们微笑着互相面对
我们相拥着翩翩起舞
向着没有前方的前方
迈出轻松优雅的舞步

I like the sun of a mild winter
I like the first grass of spring
I like the courtyard in the afternoon and the idle swings to the side
I like midsummer's slushies
I like a clear autumn night’s bright moon
A pleasant evening sky, full of stars

I like the frogs that appear after the rain
I like the apricot flowers in front of the mountain
I like dusk on Wednesday, the twilight-kissed aquarium
I like the flocks of wild ducks
I like disorderly bookshelves
Cool breeze on the balcony, sea of lights in the distance

I like walking on Highway 96 when there are no people around
I like Takuya Kimura's long locks
I like the deer sprinting on boundless fields
I like the banyan tree in front of Grandma's house

I like Mom's lunch box
I like Dad's stubble
I like the amusement park that's still open in the August evening
I like the bell that signals the end of school
I like when the power goes out a night
Light a pair of candles in the quiet vestibule

I like the distant green hills seen from the edge of town
I like the hot air balloons flying in the western sky
I like the cobblestone road in the early morning
Steam-emitting breakfast diners, Ah Gong's osmanthus cake
I like every evening cloud, every green tree

I like you
You ought to know already
I like you
You ought to know already

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t just buy two packs of Red Lanzhou
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I should’ve spent more time with the honeys

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t have bought a new outfit during spring festival
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I shouldn’t have rented a car to go home and pretend to be rich

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I shouldn’t have given my mahjong set to a friend
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I would fill a barrel full of liquor

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t have spent 500 on a perm
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I should’ve taken a girl out to party hard

Na ta c na ta sa
A tree has something to say
Na ta cei na ta c
A stringed instrument sings
Na ta c na ta sa
I fall down on the wild mountain side
Na ta cei na ta sa
Grass kisses my feet
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Open your hands and listen to the sand fall
My house caught on fire, you followed the flame's light to find me
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Stand on clouds, watch rain fall
My life cracked open, that's how sunlight came shining in
Na ta c na ta sa
Step in the red ocean, float on the river
Na ta cei na ta sa
I've walked through wilderness and deserts
Na ta cei na ta sa
My walking stick sprouted
Na ta c na ta sa
A pair of rainbows appear

Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Open your hands and listen to the sand fall
If a cloud doesn't cry, rain can't fall
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Stand on clouds, watch rain fall
If a seed doesn't die, how can wheat be born?

Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Open your hands and listen to the sand fall
My house caught on fire, you followed the flame's light to find me
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Stand on clouds, watch rain fall
My life cracked open, that's how sunlight came shining in

Only when life cracks open
Na ta c na ta sa
Can the sun come shining in

Since a potato’s composition
Is mostly a bunch of starch
You shouldn’t try to
Compare it with spinach in terms of vitamin A

You can use it with hot peppers to stir fry
A plate of vinegary julienned potato
So umami, spicy, fresh, crispy
You can totally treat it as a staple food

It also contains vitamin A
Has more thiamine than spinach
Stores a long time without spoiling

Since summer is a
Hot and suffocating season
You shouldn’t try to
Compare it with winter in terms of coolness

During the hottest time at noon, you can go out for a walk
Get some sun, sweat, detoxify, enliven blood circulation
Don’t ever need to spend money steaming in the sauna

Got some exercise, distracted oneself a bit
Also became familiar with the surrounding area
Got some exercise, distracted oneself a bit
Also became familiar with the surrounding area

Since the kid will grow up
You can’t stop it no matter what you do
Then you shouldn’t treat him
Like you would treat a Pekinese dog

Let him mistakenly believe this world
Is both refreshingly cool and warm
Basically it’s as if you took a frog
And put it into a pot filled with cold water that you slowly heat up

Flame burns ever more brightly, water gets ever hotter
Until he slowly loses perception

Since I told you that I love you
And you still don’t love me
Then why not just stay silent
And board a random train

Who cares if it’s headed towards a city
Or a small village
Anyway that place will always have
An unremarkable girl just like me

I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Her worries are waiting for me
I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Her worries are waiting for me

There’s a polar bear
Sitting on the sofa in our house
Drinking cola through a straw
Says the North Pole is too hot now

He asks me, can we turn the air conditioning on?
I say "no nuclear power", gotta be environmentally conscious
He silently looks at my refrigerator
I say don’t even think about it, no way in hell you’ll fit

Woo, why are you looking at me like that?
It’s not like I’m a hunter
Woo, why are you looking at me like that?
You say I’m not drooling, it’s tears

Crawl into bed without even bathing
Snatched away my cotton quilt, but doesn’t use it
Sleeping on my body, makes me hot as hell
He says you finally understand my pain, huh?

Pointing at the iceberg in the TV news
Says his home doesn’t look like that now
Crying, says the fish have all been eaten by humans
And he says he’d like to eat all the humans

Woo, why are you looking at me like that?
Ten of me wouldn’t be enough to fill the gaps in your teeth
Woo, why are you asking if I live by myself?
What do want to do, what do you want to do?

Wawuwawuwa, he swallowed one of my hands
Smoking my cigarettes, but doesn’t carelessly discard the butts
Wawuwawuwa, he swallowed one of my legs
Take my credit card to go shopping online
Wawuwawuwa, he swallows my body
Wear my clothes and start to go to work
Wawuwawuwa, don’t hang my head on the wall

Wawuwawuwa, living happy days
Wawuwawuwa, are these happy days?

Small town builds a pedestrian bridge
To residents accustomed to not having a crosswalk
A road that can be crossed in 2 seconds
Why must one ascend stairs that take dozens of steps
Walk down a corridor of more than 10 meters
Then choose an exit
Descend down a spiral staircase to the other side of the street
That really wastes time
Wastes physical energy, wastes emotions
Wastes youth, wastes ink
Wastes natural gas, wastes renminbi
Wastes food, wastes public resources

Very small pedestrian bridge
Was meant to let people stand even
A little bit high high high high high high higher
But in actuality a very small pedestrian bridge just makes
A very small town even smaller
Even smaller even smaller, really quite small
Just as small as a pea
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Oh
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Oh
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Ah
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Impossible
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it

Therefore (the residents who are) unpretentious, ordinary, hard-working, benevolent
Loving their hometown
Sometimes prone to taking small advantages
Never step onto it
As always, they live in the busy
Giant stream of people
Wake up, have breakfast, go to work
Eat lunch, take a siesta
Wake up, play cards, play Dou dizhu
Get off work, pick up kids from school
Eat dinner, go for a stroll and dancing
Greet acquaintances
Go back home, wash face, wash feet, rinse mouth
Go to bed and speak quietly for a while

Sun hasn’t risen yet, I open my eyes
Good morning, it’s now 6 AM
Change clothes, brush teeth, wash face, put on eyeliner
But forgot to eat breakfast

With great effort
Caught this subway train
After getting off the train
Realize that I’ve almost been squished into meat stuffing
Look down and check my wristwatch
I won’t be late
But must still add a little speed
Jog for a little while
Get through today, there’s no difference from yesterday

I would like to
Get home a bit earlier
To be not too tired
Stroke my guitar strings for a bit
Who could guess
After eating dinner it’s already 9
I want to jog 2 laps
To destroy my love handles

They say
You’d best do this and that
It should be like this and that
Go with the flow all the way to the end
But I don’t want to be facing life and saying sorry
Dadadida dadada
Saying sorry, didada dididi
Saying sorry

Dark clouds piled high in the sky
Groups of people walking blindly
Cling to momentary bursts of joy
Fill the void inside the heart
Use an invisible web
To link the world
Be consoled, be addicted

Flattering and fawning words
They always like to vie for social dominance
An environment where morals decline by the day
Corroding young souls

Sensationalist news
Blind adoration
False and exaggerated data
To manufacture topics
Manufacture topics

I’ve become a bird in a cage
Shed all the pride I once had
Saying things I don’t believe
Spare no effort to win their favor

Without realizing it I’ve become lonely and forlorn
Lonely and forlorn
But I’m powerless, hard to struggle free
This cage with an iron lock, an endless black hole

Please release me
Please discard me
Please kill me, dear master
Grant me my freedom
Please let me escape
Break free from this cage
Escape from this black hole

Please release me
Please discard me
Please kill me
Dear master

Please forgive me
Please guide me
Please help me attain my goal
Most beloved intimate

Smile
Kill me
Devour me

Dark clouds piled high in the sky
Groups of people walking blindly
Cling to momentary bursts of joy
Fill the void inside the heart

Have you already forgotten me?
I quietly left from the deep recesses of your memory
We’ve both changed our numbers
Perhaps we’ve lost touch

Actually it’s a been a really really long time since
I picked up the phone to call you
It’s just that I occasionally think of
The years we spent together

Underneath that tree where we buried the glass bottle
The hidden secret that I very much want to tell you
Actually I’ve wanted to write a letter this whole time
Don’t know where to mail it to

I’m walking by myself on the street
There’s a familiar silhouette
Want to approach but I can’t be sure
In an instant it disappears from my vision

How many people like you will I encounter in this lifetime?
Neither close nor distant, stars in the night sky
If some day I run into you on some corner
I’ll embrace you

Lalala…

After many years I returned to the tree
Unfortunately, things were already completely changed

The only home underneath the pedestrian bridge
He speaks to himself
Why does no one admire his paintings?
Old paintings that were once soaked by rain
Keeping him company in his struggle
His only assets are the sand in his shoes

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them
Waits for her to come home, come home
Old French painter
His hands are clenching a cross
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

How can he forget her?
Who once wore a snow-white wedding dress for the sake of love
Recalling the words once said under the Eiffel Tower

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them
Waits for her to come home, come home
Old French painter
His hands are clenching a cross
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves

Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

Don't need to turn the coil so tightly, treat passersby as scenery
Zoning out is the lesson of the day, getting lost is the goal of the moment
It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow
I’m gon have my way, I’m totally right, the farther my mind the better the experience

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

No need to fight on the weekend, please don’t persist in going against the flow
Heart beats in time with the rhythm in my headphones, getting lost is the goal of the moment yeah
It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow
I’m gon have my way, I’m totally right, the farther my mind the better the experience

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

It’s been a good day, just let me chill

I'm gon have my way
Today was a good day

The world is so big, why did we meet? Could it be we’re siblings? Could it be we’re related?

Today is February 14th, the legendary Valentine’s Day
All the couples on the street will celebrate the holiday today
Usually roses sell for 2 bucks each
Tonight it’s 10 times that, girls will still grin from ear to ear

Today is February 14th, the legendary Valentine’s Day
I'm going to go home and be alone, nothing better to do than read a book and eat instant noodles
But some numbskull on QQ asks me, why am I still alone
I couldn’t help but shout back this cordial response

I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
I wish that all the movie theaters and restaurants have no seats
I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
No matter if it’s Motel 168, Home Inn, 7 Days Inn, or Hanting, it’s impossible to reserve a bed

Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, what to do about accidental pregnancy?
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, what to do about accidental pregnancy?

It’s not that I’m careless, it’s just that true love is hard to resist
It’s not that I harbored intentions, it’s just that I couldn’t guard myself

I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
I wish that all the movie theaters and restaurants have no seats
I wish that all the lovers in the world are siblings that have been separated for many years
No matter if it’s Motel 168, Home Inn, 7 Days Inn, Hanting, Super 8, Holiday Inn, WeHotel, Greentree, or Crystal Orange, it’s impossible to reserve a bed

Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, what to do about accidental pregnancy?

Disaster in Mud Village, inside my aunt’s brain, inside my heart, inside my song

In my dream, in my heart, in my song

We live on a hillside of the steppe
Beautiful skies, a fine life
One day, a big wild wolf appeared
Its wounds were terribly severe

You say, let’s heal him
I know you would think this way
Of course, anyway we don’t have any friends
Therefore the wolf became our friend

One day, I was eaten by the wolf
On the steppe where we often played
He said I was an extremely delicious meal
I said, you’re welcome

No problem, no problem, you can eat it for my sake
But take care not to eat too much
Thank you for taking this sweet revenge for me
Then can I humbly request that you
Devour his body and spirit
Let me become you

Title: 住进狼胃里
Artist: 昏鸦

Translation: https://www.notion.so/7718ebe1acf842c69eab109bedd3cfd5
Chinese lyrics
我们住在草原的山坡上
天空美丽,生活美好
有一天来了一只大野狼
它受了很重很重的伤

你说我们来医治它吧
我也知道你会那么地想
当然好阿,反正我们也没有朋友
于是狼成为了我们的朋友

有一天我被狼吃掉了
在我们常玩耍的草原
它说我是非常美味的一餐
我说别客气

可以可以的,你可以为我吃掉它
但小心别吃太饱了喔
谢谢你为我完成这甜蜜复仇
那就再麻烦你
吃掉它的身体和灵魂
让我成为你

This world is too crowded
I have a small vegetable plot
This place is far from the 107
No smog or car fumes

My home isn’t in the big city
No need to smile at everyone you meet
No need to strive for money and power
I just need to make sure my tomatoes are clean

You take a Bombardier to go up in the air
My tomatoes are clean
When you land you drive a Ferrari
My tomatoes are clean

You wear a Rolex on your wrist
My tomatoes are clean
You wear Hermès around your waist
My tomatoes are clean

This world is too crowded
I have a small vegetable plot
This place is far from the 107
No smog or car fumes

My home isn’t in the big city
No need to smile at everyone you meet
No need to strive for money and power
I just need to make sure my tomatoes are clean

Your body is covered in Boucheron
My tomatoes are clean
You’ve sprayed Chanel from top to bottom
My tomatoes are clean

Tonight you’re lodging in the Burj Al Arab
My tomatoes are clean
You serve Martell at a fancy party
My tomatoes are clean

My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean

Today is another time to drink and sing
A lot of friends are meeting for the first time
Even though you’ve just gotten to know each other, you’ll be saying goodbye again very soon
I hope it isn’t for forever
Even though Bitter Ghost can only offer the gift of a little music
We hope you can hear our warm regards

Time passes day by day
We still haven’t found ourselves
Together with music and beer
There’s us, and sometimes there’s you

Sometimes happy, sometimes sad
Sometimes feel that life isn’t fair enough
Music, beer, and you all
That’s the point of our existence in this moment

Like a top, every day spinning non-stop
Why the heck are you so crazy busy?
Like a powerful eagle flying up into the blue sky
That’s how it understands the white cloud’s loneliness
The lonely wind blows away the sky-filling snow
Wants to invite it to dance and flutter

Want to wish you a happy new year, happy new year
A happy smile makes you more beautiful
Want to wish you a happy new year, happy every day
Worries and vexations, cast them all aside
Wulalalalala ye ye
Wulalalalala oh ye ye
Gotta be happy on new year's, remember it

Like a satellite, or orbiting other people
Spinning to and fro, can it receive praise?
Like a peacock, looking bright and fresh
How many years did it wait until it could spread its tail?
A tiny heart hides a lot of dreams
The more setbacks, the more bravery is needed

Want to wish you a happy new year, happy new year
A happy smile makes you more beautiful
Want to wish you a happy new year, happy every day
Worries and vexations, cast them all aside
Wulalalalala ye ye
Wulalalalala oh ye ye
Gotta be happy on new year's, remember it

Every person in this world, what are they crazily chasing after?
Does living just make you more tired and more perplexed?
The moment the new year arrives, return to childhood
Once again search for that innocent happiness

Want to wish you a happy new year, happy new year
A happy smile makes this world beautiful
Want to wish you a happy new year, happy every day
A good mood leads to humming a song
Wulalalalala ye ye
Wulalalalala oh ye ye
Gotta be happy on new year's, remember it
Happy new year, happy happy!

Draw some moonlight for the lonely night sky
Draw myself singing under the moonlight
Draw a large window on the empty house
Also draw a bed

Draw a girl to keep me company
And draw an embroidered quilt
Draw a stove and firewood
We live together

Draw a flock of birds flying around me
Draw green ridges and blue slopes
Draw tranquility and prosperity
Rain droplets drift down over rice paddies

Draw a rainbow you can touch with your hands
The drawing has a starry sky that I decided not to extinguish
Draw an endless, winding, level path
At the end (of the path), we are dreaming

Draw mother in a serene pose
And conflicts that can be wiped away using an eraser
Draw food that is available in all four seasons
A carefree person has no worries

I don’t have an eraser to wipe away arguments
Just a pen for drawing loneliness
The moon in that night sky isn’t shining anymore
There’s just a melancholy child singing
Draw some moonlight for the lonely night sky

Tonight we’re gonna relax
Go to the underground pub, entire body is carefree
Men and women drinking, dancing, singing
There’s black, white, yellow, and green, like a United Nations

Rock ‘n’ roll, one song after another
Rocking to the point where no one knows what day it is
Smoke wafts everywhere, nonstop joyous laughter
Can hear Chinese, English, French, German, as well as Spanish

The TVs on the walls are all showing MTV
Sometimes the DJ will play some cool songs
Because music is a wondrous kind of thing
It’ll make you cry, laugh, dance, scream til you’re old

The bigger and packed the crowd is, the more exciting
Scan front and back, left and right, up and down, it’s a happy scene
All night slowly indulging to your heart’s content
Who cares if you’re sitting, standing, leaning, lying down, or floating

This world is so wonderful
Life is good, so many sensations
This world is so wonderful
Having money is good, don’t lack for anything

Tonight we’re gonna relax

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know

No air conditioner, no cell phone, no DVD
At that time I had no idea what land ownership was
Summer rain falls on my chest
Mama says don’t catch a cold, run back home to study
Didn’t understand being poor, didn’t understand the ways of the world, didn’t understand love
At that time the friends by my side were everything
So-called dreams, anyway it’s not what I do for a living
Seems like I lost myself while living life

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know

From one side it looks like a ridge, from another side it looks like a peak, distance and height are all different
Cannot see the true face of Mt Lu, because I’m standing on the mountain
From one side it looks like a ridge, from another side it looks like a peak, distance and height are all different
Cannot see the true face of Mt Lu, because I’m standing on the mountain

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?

I guess you won’t be coming back tonight either
Time starts to get slower and slower
Got on the train going in the opposite direction of your home
Going towards a dark night that I'm not familiar with

Don’t fear the dark
When alone, embrace the darkness
Maybe I’ll
Look back fondly on the beautiful purity of blooming love
No matter how dark the night, at least loneliness will keep me company
Don’t fear the dark, maybe what I fear is not being able to see

Just treat it as you playing a small prank
Can’t bear to turn off this light
Perfume has left an impression on the unoccupied pillow
Reminds me I should’ve rehearsed being lonely long ago

Don’t fear the dark
When alone, embrace the darkness
Maybe I’ll
Look back fondly on the beautiful purity of blooming love
No matter how dark the night, don't want to fool myself into thinking it can console me
Don’t fear the dark, maybe what I fear is not being able to see

Close my eyes, as if I could instantly learn
Don’t fear the dark, I'd rather cry while thinking of you

Wind blows through trees full of leaves
Swaying, swaying
By the river, frogs leap
Between the grasses, crickets chirp
The moon is curved

Curved like a baby’s eyes
Laugh, laugh
Layers and layers of clouds
Like an umbrella being held up
Stars wink

Scarecrow’s general store has closed for the day
Sparrows, sparrows go home now
Tiny wings, pulling on the wind
Don’t be afraid
Wind chimes on the window can talk
Baby is laying their head on a camellia couch
Mama softly sings while her hand pushes the cradle

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis
Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Wind stops, moon is bright
Leaves cover the window lattice
Tiny crickets, crying ”zhengzheng”
Like the strings of an instrument

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis
Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Sway, sway, flowers bloom in dreams
Baby extends a hand to touch my cheek
Baby, baby, time is like a white horse
But I hope you won’t grow up
I really hope you don’t grow up
