Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine.     Stand With Ukraine!

左手指月 (Upwards to the Moon) (Zuǒshǒu zhǐ yuè) (English translation)

左手指月 (Upwards to the Moon)

左手握大地
右手握著天
掌紋裂出了
十方的閃電
把時光
匆匆兌換成了年
三千世
如所不見
 
左手拈著花
右手舞著劍
眉間落下了
一萬年的雪
一滴淚
啊啊啊
那是我
啊啊啊
 
左手一彈指
右手彈著弦
舟楫擺渡在
忘川的水間
當煩惱能
開出一朵紅蓮
莫停歇
給我雜念
 
左手指著月
右手取紅線
賜予你和我
如願的情緣
月光中
啊啊啊
你和我
啊啊啊
 
左手化成羽
右手成鱗片
某世在雲上
某世在林間
願隨你
用一粒微塵的模樣
在所有
塵世浮現
 
我左手拿起你
右手放下你
合掌時
你全部被收回心間
一炷香
啊啊啊
你是我
無二無別

Pointing toward the Moon

Versions: #1#2#3
Left hand clutches the earth
Right hand seizes the sky
From those palm lines burst forth
Radiating streaks of lightning
Gather the tide of time
And swiftly cast it into years
Three thousand lifetimes, in their entirety
Seems as if we haven’t once encountered
 
Left hand nips a flower
Right hand swings a sword
Between those brows lands
A thousand-year petal of snow
A drop of tear
Aaaaaaa~
It’s me incarnate
Aaaaaaa~
 
Left hand snaps a rhythm
Right hand strums a chord
One gondola drifts amidst
The waters of the River of Oblivion
From the depths of distress
A crimson lotus can be born
Cease not
Keep stirring up the feelings tangled in me
 
Left hand points toward the moon
Right hand twirls red threads of fate
May you and I be granted
A destined love as we wish
In the shimmering moonlight
Aaaaaaa~
You and I, together
Aaaaaaa~
 
Left hand morphs into a feather
Right hand into a fish scale
Some lifetimes are spent perched up among the clouds
Other lifetimes are spent lodged deep in the forests
I will gladly follow you
And morph into a single speck of dust
Drifting through all corners
Of the mortal realm
 
Left hand holds you tight
Right hand lets go of you
One clasp of my hands
Your entire silhouette is folded into my heart
One burning stick of incense
Aaaaaaa~
You are I, fused as one
Eternally inseparable
 
Thanks!
thanked 33 times
