He’s older than her by 3 years
She loudly calls him Old Ghost
They play guitars around the bonfire
Singing that time flows like water

He was once a big drinker
She was once young and lovely
They left home in their twenties
To be heartbroken in a faraway place

They sing that spring wind is like the sea
And sing their dreams for the future
They sing about cherishing each other
And sing about their desire to have children

They sing love songs until morning’s light
And sing about challenging yourself while you’re young
They sing that struggle is short-lived
And sing that when they’re rich and upstanding they’ll return home

He floats through factory jobs
She sells smiles in small stores
Their lives are like rice straws, no one else to rely on
But they embrace every day

He was once destitute and down on his luck
She was once an unreasonable brat
Every day they split up, stubbornly bicker
Neither asks for forgiveness

They sing that life is so fickle
And sing about the disappointment towards reality
They sing about pain and tears
And sing that maybe it’s better to end the show

They about spring grass becoming yellow in autumn
And sing about that autumn yellow turning into summer coolness
They sing about life being so boring
And sing about getting a new house next year

Life goes on
There was no miracle
They didn’t get rich
Always ordinary, then they grew old

He doesn’t sigh as much
She’s not anxious anymore
They count wrinkles and genuine happiness
Finally start to look back

They sing about how crazy those years were
And sing about that young guy, that dumb gal
They sing that life is so hard
And sing that this struggle was so glorious

They sing about how weddings are so stupid
And sing about those long-standing grudges
They sing if there’s another life
They’d like to give it another go

They sing if there’s another life
They’d like to give it another go

Chinese lyrics

他比她大三岁
她喊他叫老鬼
他们抱着吉他围着火堆
唱往事如水

他曾千杯不醉
她曾青春貌美
他们二十几岁离开家
去天涯心碎

他们唱春风如海洋
又唱对未来的幻想
他们唱彼此要珍惜
又唱生孩子的愿望

他们唱情歌到天亮
又唱趁年轻要敢闯
他们唱艰苦很短暂
又唱富贵就还乡

他在工厂飘摇
她在小店卖笑
他们生如稻草,无依无靠
却每天拥抱

他曾穷困潦倒
她曾无理取闹
他们每天分手,倔强争吵
都不肯求饶

他们唱人生太无常
又唱对现实的绝望
他们唱痛苦泪涟涟
又唱还不如就散场

他们唱春草变秋黄
又唱那秋黄换夏凉
他们唱日子太无聊
又唱明年换新房

生活还在继续
从来没有奇迹
他们没有发财
依然平凡就老去

他也少了叹息
她也不再着急
他们数着皱纹,心生欢喜
终于开始回忆

他们唱当年多疯狂
又唱那少年傻姑娘
他们唱一生太辛苦
又唱这辛苦多风光

他们唱婚礼多窝囊
又唱那陈年老旧账
他们唱如果有来生
还愿意再来一趟

他们唱如果有来生
还愿意再来一趟
