He’s a man with no past
He’s also a man with no future
So just what kind of person is he?
What kind of person is he?

Where did he discard his past?
How did he suddenly and completely lose his memories?
Was it when he made a gesture to bid farewell to his mother?
Or was it at daybreak, when a yellow balloon was dancing in the air?

One day he encounters a woman
The woman says she also happens to have no past
But she wants a future
She wants a future
She wants a future

So they go searching for a future
Bringing with them a foolish joyfulness and love
They search within each other’s lost dreams
They search within lonely kisses

Linger on that sorrowful street at sunset
Walk through a prairie beset by drifting snow
Walk all the way to the farthest lights in the city
The lights illuminated the ocean before them

At last, they realize
The future has always been made from the past
Neither of them has a past
Therefore they both jump into the sea

He’s a man with no past
He’s also a man with no future
So just what kind of person is he?
What kind of person is he?

Chinese lyrics

他是一个没有过去的男人
他也是一个没有未来的男人
那么他究竟是个什么样的人
他是个什么样的人

他把他的过去丢在哪里
怎么一下子完全就没了记忆
是在一次和母亲告别的手势里?
还是黄气球飘飞的黎明

有一天他遇到一个女人
女人说她正好也没有过去
但是她想要一个未来
她要一个未来
她要一个未来

于是他们试着去寻找未来
带着傻瓜般的欢乐和爱
他们在彼此丢失的梦里寻找
在孤独的亲吻里寻找

流连在那条日落中忧伤的街
走过了飘着雪花的草原
一直走到城市最远处的灯火
火光照亮了前面的大海

最后他们终于明白
从来未来都是由过去变来
他们都已经没有了过去
于是他们双双投入了大海

他是一个没有过去的男人
他也是一个没有未来的男人
那么他究竟是个什么样的人
他是个什么样的人
