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
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
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

Chinese lyrics

天桥底下唯一的家
他自问自答
怎么没有人欣赏他的画
被雨淋湿过的旧画
陪着他挣扎
身家只剩下鞋里的沙

法国老画家
画着爱的她
眼泪在惩罚都不擦
等她回家,回家
法国老画家
手握着十字架
只想回到拥抱1968年的她

怎么忘了她
曾经为爱穿上雪白色的婚纱
回忆着巴黎铁塔下曾说的话

法国老画家
画着爱的她
眼泪在惩罚都不擦
等她回家,回家
法国老画家
手握着十字架
只想回到拥抱1968年的她

法国老画家
画着爱的她
眼泪在惩罚都不擦
等她回家,回家
法国老画家
手握着十字架
只想回到拥抱1968年的她
只想回到拥抱1968年的她
