Lady Nüwa mended the heavens
A leftover rock became Mt Hua
Birds fly with their backs to that sun
Fly from the east side to the west side

Why has the sky turned grey?
Why does the earth have no green?
Why are people's hearts not red?
Why has the snowy mountain turned black?

Why does the rhino have no horn?
Why does the elephant have no tusks?
Why does the shark have no fin?
Why do the birds have no wings?

Heaven and earth keep each other company
Birds go around that sun
Mt Hua and Yellow River keep each other company
The rice in the fields bend over in laughter

Why does the desert have no oasis?
Why are the stars no longer twinkling?
Why are the flowers no longer blooming?
Why is the world devoid of color?

Why is it we know the outcome?
Why are we still being wasteful?
We must stop our forward march
(We) should restore a little color to the world

Title: 给你一点颜色
Artist: 谭维维
Link: https://youtu.be/1BZzs_2dhS4?t=146

Chinese lyrics

女娲娘娘补了天
剩下块石头成华山
鸟儿背着那太阳飞
东边飞到西那边

为什么天空变成灰色
为什么大地没有绿色
为什么人心不是红色
为什么雪山成了黑色

为什么犀牛没有了角
为什么大象没有了牙
为什么鲨鱼没有了鳍
为什么鸟儿没有了翅膀

天空和大地做了伴
鸟儿围着那太阳转
华山和黄河做了伴
田里的谷子笑弯腰

为什么沙漠没有绿洲
为什么星星不再闪烁
为什么花儿不再开了
为什么世界没有了颜色

为什么我们知道结果
为什么我们还在挥霍
我们需要停下脚步
该还世界一点颜色

Clouds, just like wandering minstrels
Singing the wind’s song, spitting the rain’s saliva
Birds, forgot how to fly
Anyway, being in a cage isn’t tiring, can sleep soundly

Turn off cell phone, activate insect’s antennae
Let us perceive this world

Right now, close your friend feed
Close your eyes, and your mouth
Ears, can probe orientation
Let us slowly search for the distant place

Reindeer eats that lichen ah
It can’t come out of the forest ah

Information overload is like carbon in the air
Am I engaging too many senses (at once)?
Invite “Silence” on a date
Use insect’s antennae to chat with her

The ink on the page is deeper than that on a page
The music on a live stage is more real than that from earphones
After we meet in person, give me your time, ok?
After returning home, (use our cell phones to) keep in touch

Use insect’s antennae to look far afield
Use insect’s antennae to perceive this world, ok? Heh heh.

Title: 虫的触角。
Artist: 诺尔曼
Link: https://artist.douban.com/m/nuoerman/tracks?play=tSebuc&pl=pSpjsllq9p&pz=1
Translation: https://www.notion.so/b956edac59c14645b6abe10f7de2ae3e

Chinese lyrics

云儿 就像吟游诗人
唱着风的歌,吐着雨的口水
鸟儿 忘记了怎么飞
反正在笼中不累,可以安睡

关上手机,开启虫的触角
让我们感知这世界吧

现在 关上你的朋友圈
闭上你的眼睛 还有嘴
耳朵 可以探测方向
让我们逐渐 去寻觅远方

驯鹿是吃那苔藓的啊
它从森林中出不来呀

信息多的像空中的碳(氧化合物)
我是否运行着太多感官?
邀请“静静”来个约会吧
用虫的触角与她交谈

书上的墨比屏幕更深
现场的音乐比耳机更真
相见后时间给我可以吗?
回家后再低头联络吧

用虫的触角去遥望吧
用虫的触角去感知这世界,好吗? 呵呵

Drifting in circles
Tired of a thousand people with the same face
The day she descends to earth
What will her appearance be?

 

Deep black horizon
Unfathomable hallucinations
Long unencountered halo
In front of me, barely discernible

 

I think this time
I really fell in love with something
I think this time
My heart is harder than stone

 

Inside my hand
There’s a single rose
There’s just one chance
Want to wilt in your embrace

 

Inside my gun
There’s a single bullet
Just one swift release
Want to go through your heart

 

I want to go through
Your heart
I want you to
Constantly think of me

 

More than 40 seasons
Forgot the feeling of love
Tip of tongue is numb
Cannot taste bitterness, cannot recall sweetness

 

No matter how many years I’ve waited
No matter how long I’ve walked down the wrong road
As long as I can see
The scene from every night’s dream

 

I think this time
I really fell in love with something
I think this time
My heart is harder than stone

 

Inside my hand
There’s a single rose
There’s just one chance
Want to wilt in your embrace

 

Inside my gun
There’s a single bullet
Just one swift release
Want to go through your heart

 

I want to go through
Your heart
I want you to
Constantly think of me

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, smoking
I’m burning time
Year after year

Won’t keep thinking about yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
Also won’t wait for tomorrow
Getting through today

Reflect from every day’s experience
Sing every day’s joy and sorrow
Drink a cup of coffee without sugar
Taste many flavors (within)

Maybe there are tears
Maybe there will be regret
Maybe this is what makes it perfect
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, staring into space
I’m enjoying time
Year after year

It’s too late to wait for yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
It’s also too late to wait for tomorrow
Got through today

This moment’s experience
This moment’s joy and sorrow
This cup of coffee without sugar
Taste even more flavors (within)

Because there are tears
Because there’ll be regrets
Because it’s like this, it can be called beautiful
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Title: 无糖的咖啡

Translation: https://www.notion.so/ef6127a3248d475b966584daacb7f288

Chinese lyrics

就这样一天天
就这样抽着烟
我燃烧着时间
一年一年

不再去想昨天
今天很快是从前
也不再等明天
过着今天

读每天的体会
唱每天的喜与悲
喝一杯无糖的咖啡
品出许多的滋味

也许有眼泪
也许要后悔
也许这样才完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

就这样一天天
就这样发着呆
我享受着时间
一年一年

来不及等昨天
今天很快是从前
也来不及等明天
过了今天

这一刻的体会
这一刻的喜与悲
这一杯无糖的咖啡
品出更多的滋味

因为有眼泪
因为要后悔
因为这样叫完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

Something you didn’t personally ignite
That can’t be called a flame
Something you didn’t personally touch
That can’t be called a jewel
You ah you
Finally appeared
We only met by chance
This heart was smashed to pieces
The entire world completely fell apart

 

Someone who isn’t personally killed by you
Has absolutely no reason to continue living
You ah you
Finally appeared
We only met by chance
This heart was smashed to pieces
The entire world completely fell apart

 

If this life must end
Then I must die by your hands
Then I must die by your hands
Then I must die by your hands

In the night sky
So many stars
Bright one is you
Dim one is me

In the wilderness
Flowers in the wind
Red one is you
Green one is me

Between heaven and earth
So many landscapes
Blue mountain is you
Small river is me

In life
So much that is ephemeral
Cloud is like you
Cool breeze is like me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

 

Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

Darling Orpheus

Please sing a song
You pluck the lyre strings
Mountains and seas are all moved
Mesmerized by your song

Pitiable Orpheus
Please don’t cry
That despicable poisonous snake
Took away Eurydice
You narrate your grief through song

Weary Orpheus
You walked seven days and seven nights
Arrive at the foothills of Mount Tartarus
That god who can resurrect her
I want to use my sincerity to trade

The golden lyre’s light
Shines through the perpetual darkness
You lightly stroke the strings
The wandering souls
Weep sympathetic tears

Darling Orpheus
Don’t forget your promise
Eurydice is just behind you
Feel the warmth of sunlight
How could you possibly lose her again?

Pitiable Orpheus
Your song contains nothing but sorrow
He lost Eurydice forever
All that’s left is ceaseless
Longing for her

Oh my Orpheus
Those who can’t have you
Who can’t hear your song
In rage and disappointment tear you to shreds
Toss you into the sea along with the lyre

Darling Orpheus
Those streets you walked through
Nightingales circling in the air
Listen to her song
Moves you like nothing else

I think I should calm down to think about some words
I think I should calm down to walk a path
I think I should calm down to read a book
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

I think I should calm down to sleep a spell
I think I should calm down to think about someone
I think I should calm down to forget those things
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

When everything starts to calm down
Calm enough for me to hear a composed and quiet heartbeat
Calm like clouds
Calm like air
Calmly and gradually I get used to it

我想应该静下来想一些话
我想应该静下来走一段路
我想应该静下来看一本书
我只想静下来反省自己

我想应该静下来睡一个觉
我想应该静下来想一个人
我想静下来忘掉那些事情
我只想静下来反省自己

当一切都开始静下来的时候
静的可以让我听到平和安静的心跳
静的象云
静的象空气
静静的我开始渐渐的适应

I suddenly get the urge to skip work
Stare into space, be a little lazy
But I also want to ask myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
How can I paint the future?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
Thinking about it, I still don’t get it

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, I really have no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Chinese lyrics

突然很想 不去上班
发一发呆 偷一点懒
但是又要 问我自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我要怎么 画出未来

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我想不明白

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 我真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

Alarm clock already sounded many times, how come you haven’t gotten up?
You said sleep for 5 minutes more, but it’s already been an hour
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Piled up a week’s worth of work, you put it off again and again
Leader is anxious, boss is angry, but you just keep tweeting
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
Next week is the test, textbook hasn’t even been touched
Will see advisor tomorrow to submit thesis, at worst you won’t sleep tonight
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can definitely diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Pile up for a month, no more clean clothes to wear
Room isn’t inhabitable by humans, no place to put your feet
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

End of the month, rent hasn’t been paid, should be fined for (late) water and electricity (bill)
Don’t want to make food, don’t want to bathe, can’t stop (watching) TV shows
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
You’ve gotten fat again, you said you were going to work out, laid down the whole day
This meal doesn’t count, wait until next meal, if you don't eat your fill how can you lose weight?
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can totally diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Can you be saved?
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer
You ask me, but who do I ask?
We’re all late stage procrastination syndrome sufferers

Chinese lyrics

闹钟响了好几遍了你怎么不起床呢
你说再睡个五分钟可已经一钟头了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一礼拜的工作可是你一拖再拖
领导急了老板怒了可你还在玩微博
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
下礼拜就要考试了课本还从没碰过
明天见导师交论文大不了今晚不睡了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以确切诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一个月了没有干净衣服能穿了
房间不是人类住的双脚都没地方搁
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

月底了房租还没交水电费该罚款了
不想做饭不想洗澡电视剧停不下了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
你又胖了说要去健身房可整天躺着
这顿不算下顿再说不吃饱怎么减肥呢
根据您的临床表现
我们可以完全诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

我还有救吗
您是晚期拖延症患者
你问我我问谁呢
我们都是晚期拖延症患者

If you see that I’m ignoring you
I’m doing it on purpose
At night I still wear sunglasses
I’m still faking it

I own a small Xiali
My key chain says Audi
Going out must bring a chauffeur and assistant
Otherwise I won’t go anywhere at all

There’s one leader, he says to me
Your taste is excellent
If you listen to even more classical music
You can enter another world

I suddenly gained respect for him
I repeatedly nodded to express my approval
Suddenly his phone rang
(Can’t bear being wounded, really can’t bear being wounded)
Wow, leader! I really appreciate this classical classic song.
I pinched myself

Living in this world, people coming and going
Every shade and description
Can’t clearly discern who’s a good person
Who’s a big bad wolf

The forest is big, the birds are many
Don’t lose your bearings
People in jianghu, do what they please
When you should fake it, you must fake it

Everyone is a director of life
On occasion, make a cameo for several days
As an actor bound by the unwritten rules of life
My role is always the brightest
My costume is the most beautiful
My box office is always sold out
When I should fake it, I must fake it

In my social circle is an older woman
Every day she’s very active
In every photo expose her underwear
Everything she says is very artsy

She obviously looks like a hired thug
But she insists she looks like an actress
Even though she’s only 56
But this is everyone’s freedom

Chinese lyrics

如果你看到我没理你
那是我故意滴
大晚上我还戴着墨镜
我就是在装(滴~)

我有一辆小夏利
我的钥匙链是奥迪
出门必须有司机助理
否则我哪儿也不去

有一位领导他对我说
你的品位很不错
如果再多听些古典音乐
就会进入另一个世界

我顿时对他心生敬意
我频频点头表示赞许
突然他的电话响起
(伤不起,真的伤不起……)
哇,领导!我特别喜欢这首古典神曲
我掐了一下我自己

活在世上人来人往
形形色色模样
分不清楚谁是好人
谁是大灰狼

林子很大,鸟儿很多
不要迷失方向
人在江湖,我行我素
该装就得装

每个人都是生活的导演
偶尔也会客串几天
被生活潜规则的演员
我的角色永远最闪亮
我的服装最漂亮
我的票房总是满满当当
我该装就得装

朋友圈里有个姐姐
每天都很活跃
每张照片都露着内衣
每句话都说的很文艺

她明明长得像个打手
可非说自己像个女优
虽然她才五十六
但这是每个人的自由

I want to waste time with you
For example, look down at fish
For example, leave tea cups on the table and walk away
Squander their good-looking shadows

I also want to squander the setting sun together with you
For example, take a stroll
Keep idling until the sky is full of stars
I also want to squander the moment when the wind rises
Sit in the hallway and stare blankly
Until the dark clouds in your eyes
Are all blown out the window

I’ve already idled away the world, it passed through me
Weariness is like never having been loved
But I still want tomorrow to be like this
Wasting time, I still want it to be like this

An eyeful of flowers and plants
Life should just as glorious as they are
The same meaninglessness, the same
Like a movie that was idled through

For example, leaning on the railing
Look down at the water’s mirror
Until all the things that have been idled away
Grow delicate wings behind our backs

I’ve already idled away the world, it passed through me
Weariness is like never having been loved
But I still want tomorrow to be like this
Wasting time, I still want it to be like this
Want us to waste each other
Together idle through brief silence, long meaninglessness
Together idle through the intricate yet aged universe

Title: 我想和你虚度时光

Chinese lyrics

我想和你虚度时光
比如低头看鱼
比如把茶杯留在桌子上离开
浪费它们好看的阴影

我还想连落日一起浪费
比如散步
一直消磨到星光满天
我还要浪费风起的时候
坐在走廊发呆
直到你眼中的乌云
全部被吹到窗外

我已经虚度了世界 它经过我
疲倦像从未被爱过
但是明天我还要这样
虚度 我还要这样

满目的花草
生活应该像它们一样美好
一样无意义 一样
像被虚度的电影

比如靠在栏杆上
低头看水的镜子
直到所有被虚度的事物
在我们身后 长出薄薄的翅膀

我已经虚度了世界 它经过我
疲倦像从未被爱过
但是明天我还要这样
虚度 我还要这样
想和你互相浪费
一起虚度短的沉默 长的无意义
一起消磨精致而苍老的宇宙

Remember in my youth
Everyone was honest and sincere
Say something and that’s that

Daybreak at the train station
Long street is dark, no pedestrians
The shop selling soy milk gives off steam

In the past, the hues of sunlight changed slowly
Cars, horses, mail were all slow
A lifetime lasts long enough to love one person

In the past, locks were lovely
Keys were elegant and classy
You locked it, and everyone understood

记得早先少年时
大家诚诚恳恳

清早上火车站
长街黑暗,无行人
卖豆浆的小店冒着热气

从前的日色变得慢
车,马,邮件都慢
一生只够爱一个人

从前的锁也好看
钥匙精美,有样子
你锁了,人家就懂了

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
Specialize in treating talking BS
Headache, fever, low blood pressure
Has nothing to do with me

If you want to talk BS
Why not strike an airplane (slang) instead
Not only cheap but also enjoyable
And also no pressure

Eat a bit is no big deal
Drink a bit is no big deal
People who talk BS
(They) all lack real ability

If someone is talking BS
Just find an awesome doctor of Chinese medicine
A beating of “punish five evils” fist
Beat your head until it leaks air

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
Driving a tractor
Running all over the country
Specialize in treating talking BS

Carrying a Dageda (huge and expensive legacy mobile phone from the 90s)
Wear a pager around my waist
Wear a pair of big boxers
Effing Yuxi cigarette dangling from mouth

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
All day smiling and laughing
Hear someone talking BS
Will beat them by kicking

(Bossily) I’m a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
When I go out I still take a taxi
Sometimes will find two young companions
Effing do 3P (slang)

Every day talking BS
Sooner or later will be struck by lightning
If lightning didn't strike you dead
There's still a badass doctor of Chinese medicine

Don't talk BS
Those who talk BS will be kicked
(Even more bossily) I'm a badass doctor of Chinese medicine
Specialize in treating talking BS

Chinese lyrics

姐是老中医
专治吹牛逼
头疼脑热血压低
跟我没关系

你要吹牛逼
不如打飞机
又省钱来又过瘾
还没有压力

吃点没关系
喝点没关系
吹牛逼的那些人
都没有实力

有人吹牛逼
就找老中医
一顿五毒拍逼掌
脑袋打放屁

姐是老中医
开着拖拉机
全国各地四处跑
专治吹牛逼

手拿大哥大
我腰挎BB机
身穿一条大裤衩
特么嘴里叼玉溪

姐是老中医
整天笑嘻嘻
听见有人吹牛逼
就是一顿踢

姐是老中医
我出门也打的
有时候也找俩小伙
特么玩一把3P

天天吹牛逼
早晚让雷劈
雷电要是劈不死
还有老中医

不要吹牛逼
谁吹谁挨踢
姑奶奶就是老中医
专治吹牛逼

If my mighty eagle loses its wings
If my spirited horse loses its direction
If my open country becomes a barren desert
If my rivers dry up and stop flowing

Don’t let the eagle’s soaring lose its wings
Don’t let the steed’s gallop lose its direction
Don’t let your desire drown your heart
Don’t let Mother Earth convalesce in loneliness

If my highland loses its pastures
If my shepherds lose their cows and sheep
Don’t let the eagle’s soaring lose its wings
Don’t let the steed’s gallop lose its direction
I fly over grasslands, searching for heaven
I fly in the sky, sun and moon illuminate me

I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah

Heaven is calling out
Restore everlasting green to the earth
I fly ah, I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah
Love knows no borders

I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, freely I fly ah

I lonelily fly
I freely fly
I freely fly
I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, freely I fly ah

Chinese lyrics

如果我的雄鹰失去了翅膀
如果我的骏马失去了方向
如果我的原野变成了荒漠
如果我的江河干枯不再流淌

别让鹰的翱翔失去了翅膀
别让骏马的飞驰失去了方向
别让你的欲望淹没了心
别让大地母亲在孤独中疗伤

如果我的高原失去了牧场
如果我的牧人失去了牛羊
别让鹰的翱翔失去了翅膀
别让骏马的飞驰失去了方向
我在草原飞,寻找天堂
我在天空飞,日月把我照亮

我飞呀,我飞呀,孤独地飞呀
我飞呀,我飞呀,孤独地飞呀

天在呼唤
还给大地永恒的绿色
我飞呀,我飞呀
我飞呀,我飞呀
爱没边疆

HAYA~

我飞呀,我飞呀,孤独地飞呀
我飞呀,我飞呀,自由地飞呀

我孤独地飞
我自由地飞
我自由地飞
我飞呀,我飞呀,孤独地飞呀
我飞呀,我飞呀,自由地飞呀
HAYA

Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books, fix bowls

Popsicles and ice cream bars, soymilk and deep-fried breadsticks
These are the flavors that can’t be erased from my childhood
Big bowl of sheep innards, egg with rice wine
Along with people’s customs, (these foods) have been forgotten due to the changing of the times

Old Bai at the alleyway, he’s singing a folk song
Whatever he’s singing, whatever it is, you listen
Sharpen knives and scissors, the wind is blowing the willow branches
We sit on the riverbank singing the local folk songs from that time
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They smoke and smoke their water pipes, letting time slip away
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Throw away your rouge now and come with me to seek tomorrow
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Even if time becomes lightning fast, I’ll still live brilliantly

Water so clear, mountain so green
This is the childhood from my dreams that I can’t return to
Winter’s kang (heatable brick bed), summers’s sun
Spring’s flowing brook, autumn’s wine
At that end of the mountain, Yellow River’s upper reaches
Comes a sound, you listen

Sharpen knives and scissors, wind is blowing on the wharf
They sit on the riverbank looking at that western mountain’s sun
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They’re drinking tea from teacups with lids and gossiping about the boss family’s unexpected misfortunes
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Put aside your worries and come with me to seek your childhood
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Just keep walking, don’t look back

Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books
Collect used books, return to your hometown

Chinese lyrics

砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,收废书哟,收上废书,换碗哟

冰棍儿雪糕,豆浆油条
这是我童年里抹不去的味道
大碗儿的羊杂,鸡蛋加老酒
也随着时间的变迁和人们的习惯被遗忘

巷口的老白,他唱着歌谣
他唱的什么,唱的什么,你听
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,风吹着柳枝
我们坐在河岸边唱着那儿时的歌谣
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,大山的人哟
他们磕巴磕巴烟袋让时光就这么溜走
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我亲爱的人呐
快丢掉你的胭脂和我去寻找明天
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我是快乐的人呐
就算时光飞快我一样活得精彩

清清的水哟,绿绿的山哟
这是我在梦里却回不去的小时候
冬天的炕哟,夏天的日头
春天的溪流,秋天的酒
在山的那头,黄河的上游
传来一个声音,你听

砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,风吹着码头
他们坐在河岸边看着那西山的日头
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,大山的人哟
他们喝着盖碗儿茶扯着东家的三长两短
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我亲爱的人呐
快放下你的忧愁和我去寻找小时候
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我是快乐的人呐
就一直走,不回头

砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,收废书哟
收上废书哟,回家乡喽
