I’m sitting alone in Kathmandu, in a hotel opened by a Chinese person
As always, breakfast is rice porridge, fried dough, salted veggies, and soy milk
The air here is horrible, dust flying upwards
People aren’t so friendly either
I don’t want to talk, don’t dare to talk, and don’t know what to say
Maybe if you were by my side, I’d have more to say

Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
You need at least one person to take pictures for you
Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
Looking at the passing scenery makes me very lonely

I see a rhinoceros, a crocodile, elephants, and a gay couple
One of them often flashes me smile, making me anxious
You say you studied English for so long and look what it's good for
In the end, you don’t dare to speak and don’t know what to say
Maybe if you were around, I’d have more to say

Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
I’m very aware of my own forgetfulness
Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
Looking at the passing scenery makes me very lonely
During lonely times, gotta resist temptations

Title: 去你的旅行
Artist: 小普

Chinese lyrics

一个人坐在Kathmandu中国人开的酒店里
早餐依旧是稀饭,油条,咸菜还有豆浆
这里空气很糟,尘土飞扬
人们也不太友好
我不想说话,不敢说话也不知道要说什么话
也许有你在身边,我的话会比较多

让你一个人去旅行,让你一个人去旅行
至少得有一个人给你拍照片
让你一个人去旅行,让你一个人去旅行
沿途的风景看得很寂寞

我看见犀牛,看见鳄鱼,看见elephants还看见一对gay
其中一个时不时得对我微笑搞的我心里毛毛
你说你学了那么久的English有球用
到头来还是不敢说话,不知道要说什么
也许有你在,我的话会比较多

让你一个人去旅行,让你一个人去旅行
明知道自己丢三落四
让你一个人去旅行,让你一个人去旅行
沿途的风景看得很寂寞
寂寞的时候要抵住诱惑

From the lake surface, a fish lightly leaps out
Wandering journey, who got lost?
Wind penetrates bone, wet shoes, dew on grass
Fell in love with roughing it, go towards sunset

The moon is as before, ancient from the start
Pass through mountain and valley, stumble upon a deer
Hope I can know why I go through this hardship
Hope it doesn't know where the tears are

Hope life is resilient enough
Put myself through days and nights of loneliness
Let the wind carry me to some place
Afterwards, I'm unable to leave some place

Hope life is resilient enough
Put myself through days and nights of loneliness
Let the wind carry me to some place
Afterwards, I'm unable to leave some place

Hope loneliness is complete enough
Lend me simplicity in spades
Love this world's warm things
On the roadside, halt my steps for the twilight clouds

Let the wind carry me to some place
Afterwards, I'm unable to leave some place

Chinese lyrics

鱼从湖面 轻轻跃出
辗转在途,谁迷了路
风穿入骨,鞋湿草露
爱上穷途 去往日暮

月亮依旧,古老如初
途经山谷,撞见麋鹿
愿我能知 苦为何物
愿它不知 泪在何处

愿生命 足够强固
投我以 日夜孤独
让风带 我去某处
然后离 不开某处

愿生命 足够强固
投我以 日夜孤独
让风带 我去某处
然后离 不开某处

愿孤独 足够彻骨
借我以 简单富足
爱世间 温暖事物
沿途为 晚霞驻足

 

让风带 我去某处
然后离 不开某处

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!

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!

Keep driving north on Highway 1
The sun occasionally hiding itself away from view
Partly sunny, partly rainy
Keep going forward, don't drive too fast

At the end of Highway 62
Lift your head and you'll see the ocean
Stick to the coast and turn right
The sea wind blows, clouds move so fast
When you reach Dongding Road, turn right
Keep going along winding mountain roads

Na lu wan na yi lu wan
Hoi yi ya na yi na ya
Na lu wan na yi na yi ya
Na lu wan na yi na ya

People that you brushed past
Light is on, but door is locked
Mountains and seas of the northeastern corner
Layers of cloud and mist spread out
People who get lost are left out
Below the stairs with 23 steps lies the answer

Na lu wan na yi lu wan
Hoi yi ya na yi na ya
Na lu wan na yi na yi ya
Na lu wan na yi na ya

It's raining cats and dogs, don't leave again
Drink coffee, listen to a concert

Chinese lyrics

一号公路继续往北开
太阳偶尔躲着不出来
时而天晴,时而雨
继续往前,别开得太快

六十二号公路的尽头
抬起头就望见一片海
沿着海岸向右转
吹着海风,云走得好快
洞顶路口向右转
一直绕着山路在蜿蜒

Na lu wan na yi lu wan
Hoi yi ya na yi na ya
Na lu wan na yi na yi ya
Na lu wan na yi na ya

路过的擦肩而过的人
亮着灯却上了锁的门
东北角的山与海
云雾层层地蔓延
迷路的人落了单
二十三个阶梯下面有答案

Na lu wan na yi lu wan
Hoi yi ya na yi na ya
Na lu wan na yi na yi ya
Na lu wan na yi na ya

大雨倾盆,你别再走
喝咖啡,听一场音乐会

Heroes always
Say some pretty words and then go off to die beautifully
But I’m not like that
As always, I live ignominiously
Hero

If you feel tired once in a while
You can to my place to rest a bit
If you feel tired once in a while

You always say that before the flames of war engulf the world
You want to keep struggling some more
I silently watch you fall asleep

I often want to go to a random corner
To easily die there
A person like me somehow fell for you

Heroes always
Say some pretty words and then go off to die beautifully
This time, can you
Let me proudly go with you?

Hero
Before the world is destroyed
Let me be by your side

I fell in love with your spirit
And also fell in love with the place where we met

Hey, how have you been lately?
Are you still really busy?
What's been troubling you?

Hey, do you still sometimes get homesick?
You're still often staying up all night, right?
Is there still something you can't put aside?

By heaven's lake, we play on swings
Watch the plane form a line in the sky
The liquid in the corner of my eye was a little salty
I know that the road ahead is actually quite long

Many years later, will we meet again?
Can we remember every face?
Or maybe many years later, after smiling and embracing
Can't help but say
Sorry what's your name

Right now, what kind of sky is outside your window?
Which dreams you've dreamed are you thinking of?
Back then, who were you shoulder-to-shoulder with?

Did you keep all those photos?
Store those memories well
Don't let time steal them away

It’s 3 in the afternoon
I’m lying in an unfamiliar room
My journey on this planet is about to end
The doctor says maybe next season

This letter contains many characters
Right now you might not know all of them
Once you reach fourth grade, you can probably understand it
Even if you can’t understand it, you can’t ask your mom
Because what’s below is a conversation between 2 men

Grades don’t need to be too good, but you have to stick with drawing
If you really like music, then you should give it a shot
Don’t listen to those old fogeys, don’t become a boring person
You like to eat and that’s great, but don’t get too fat

You can call me Jake, Jake
You can also call me Peter, Peter
We don’t ever need to stick to those formalities
After all, we’re friends

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

You ought to have inherited my baldness
But fortunately your dad is extremely hairy
Hope you aren’t like my son
Turned into a shuttlecock at 20
Everybody on the street could recognize him

You can start dating a little early, I think 17 is perfect
When you get in and out of cars, you should open doors; on rainy days bring a big umbrella
In your spare time, prepare some jokes; as much as possible, treat people out to eat
This is some of my experience, hope it can be of some help to you

You can call me Jake, Jake
You can also call me Peter, Peter
You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

There’s one more thing I must ask of you
You have to promise me
You must take care of her
My daughter
My most beloved, precious little daughter
Got it?

What should you call me? Jake!
What can you call me? Peter!
We don’t ever need to stick to those formalities
After all, we’re friends
You should call me Jake, Jake!
You should call me Peter, Peter!
You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong again

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?

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

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

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

A movie’s plot can’t be as perfect as this moment
Looking at your profile, get a little bit dizzy
Kitty doesn’t speak, cola bottle on the window
You say it’s very quiet here

After raining, the sky is a little bit sunny
From behind the clouds, radiant sunlight bursts forth
Standing on the rooftop, I decide to embrace your world
Perhaps there’s only darkness there

Cake and coffee can’t be as sweet as this moment
Filled with enough air, bicycle parked by the road
Faded stairs, memory reflects light
You say it’s very familiar here

Streets in September are a little bit crowded
His paper airplane slowly starts to fall
Standing on the rooftop, I decide to embrace your weakness
Even if it’s filled with darkness

After raining, the sky is a little bit sunny
From behind the clouds, radiant sunlight bursts forth
Standing on the rooftop, I decide to embrace your world
Even if it’s filled with darkness

I’ll give you the most beautiful flower garden

Faraway stars fall, ding dong
Toward the wild plains of another place
Open eyes, capture a flash of light

In dreams, construct a hundred labyrinths
The season walks forward, weaving me
Sealing me within a soft white cell

Want to break free, because I was hesitant before
Hasten the birth of a new me

A strand, a millimeter, a centimeter forward
Surreal world just like a forest
Unable to pass through the mountain peak’s rain

Wind comes, wind goes, wind is chanting
Time brings great changes, but no longer than a lifespan
Cannot recite time’s poetic verse

The last time, one more time
Go listen
Fly over here, bury it in
Metamorphose

Eternity
Extinguished
The butterfly

Without sight
Look back
Without words

Hallucination
Annihilation
The butterfly
At the end
Fly away
Fly far

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

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

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?
Go and celebrate your Valentine’s Day, apricot flowers extend over the wall (metaphor for affair)

Disaster in Mud Village, inside my aunt’s brain, inside my heart, inside my song
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
Link: https://youtu.be/4s8J8zti8qw
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
