I like lying on the sofa
Thinking of nothing
No way to finish everything I want to do
It's not too late to start tomorrow

Actually I’ve got my hands full
Have to focus on staring into space
Be present
Let the future stay in the future

Lalalalalalalala
My bad habit
Lalalalalalalala
I can always catch up
Take it in stride
I guess I’ll start tomorrow

I accept the plan
But I accept change even more
Accept my current thinking
Just listen to myself

I didn’t say I won’t do it
Still gotta do what should be done
But why are you in such a hurry?
Sit down and talk slowly

Lalalalalalalala
My bad habit
Lalalalalalalala
I can always catch up
Take it in stride
I guess I’ll start tomorrow

Lalalalalalalala
My bad habit
Be lazy for a day, catch up again
It’s bad that I can always catch up
Take it in stride
I guess I’ll start tomorrow

Well I wanna do a lot
Read 'n' learn 'n' listen to a lot more
(But I said I would do it but I didn't)
I dream a lot
Thinkin' talkin' hardly get my hands on

Know how to seize the day
Need to be good at using time
Change it, stop procrastinating

I guess I’ll start tomorrow

Chinese lyrics

喜欢躺在沙发上
什么都不想
要做的做不完
明天开始也不晚

其实我是忙不过来
要专心发呆
感受现在
让未来留在未来

Lalalalalalalala
我的坏习惯
Lalalalalalalala
总是赶得上
不慌不忙
明天开始吧

我服从计划
可我更服从变化
服从现在的想法
就听自己的话

我不是说不做
该做的还是要做
可你急什么
坐下来慢慢说

Lalalalalalalala
我的坏习惯
Lalalalalalalala
总是赶得上
不慌不忙
明天开始吧

Lalalalalalalala
我的坏习惯
懒了一天,再赶一遍
错在总是赶得上
不慌不忙
明天开始吧

Well I wanna do a lot
Read 'n' learn 'n' listen to a lot more
(可是就是说了不做)
I dream a lot
Thinkin' talkin' hardly get my hands on

知道 把握今天
需要 善用时间
改掉,不再迟延

明天开始吧

喜欢躺在沙发上。。。

I like the song and her mellow voice. Have to wonder if this could be an informal anthem for the "lying flat" movement that I've read about. 

Quote

Headline: >>"More and more Chinese 20-somethings are rejecting the rat race and 'lying flat' after watching their friends work themselves to death" (Quote from https://www.insider.com/disenchanted-chinese-youth-join-a-mass-movement-to-lie-flat-2021-6)

  • The movement of the moment in China is "lying flat," which advocates for lying down instead of working hard.
  • More Chinese youth appear to be rejecting a life and work culture of constant competition.
  • "Lying flat" rejects the "9-9-6" culture that encourages people to work 12 hour days six days a week.
