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

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

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
