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

Chinese lyrics

亲爱的厄尔普斯
请你唱一首歌
你拨动里拉琴弦
山海都为之动容
都沉醉于你的歌声

可怜的厄尔普斯
请你不要哭泣
那只可恨的毒蛇
夺走了欧莉蒂克
你用歌声诉说忧伤

疲惫的厄尔普斯
你走了七天七夜
走到泰塔罗斯山脚下
那能复活她的神
我愿用真心交换

金色里拉琴的光芒
照亮永恒的黑暗
你轻轻抚弄琴弦
无家可归的灵魂
流下了同情的泪水

亲爱的厄尔普斯
不要忘记承诺
欧莉蒂克就在你的身后
感受到了阳光的温暖
怎能再次失去她

可怜的厄尔普斯
歌声里只有哀愁
他永远失去了欧莉蒂克
只剩下无休无止
对她的思念

哦我的厄尔普斯
那些得不到你的人
听不到你的歌声
愤怒与失望将你撕碎
和里拉琴一起扔进大海

亲爱的厄尔普斯
你曾走过那些街道
天空中飞翔着的夜莺
你听听她的歌声
比任何地方都动听
