戀人心 (Liànrén xīn)

化作风 化作雨
化作春 走向你
梦如声 梦如影
梦是遥望的掌印
化作烟 化作泥
化作云 飘向你
思如海 恋如城
思念最遥不可及
 
你问西湖水
偷走她的几分美
时光一去不再
信誓旦旦留给谁
你问长江水
淘尽心酸的滋味
剩半颗恋人心
唤不回
 
化作诗 化作笔
化作灯 写着你
默念著 轻叹著
那些深沉的字句
化作路 化作径
化作情 找寻你
爱一次 梦一 场
思念最遥遥无期
 
你问西湖水
偷走她的几分美
时光一去不再
信誓旦旦留给谁
你问长江水
淘尽心酸的滋味
剩半颗恋人心
唤不回

English translation

Lover's heart

Turning myself into the wind, into the rain
Into a spring, going towards you
Dreams are like sounds, dreams are like shadows
Dreams are a handprint in the distance
Turning myself into the mist, into the dirt
Into a floating cloud, drifting towards you
Missing (deep) аs sea, love (strong) as town
Missing someone that's out of reach
 
You ask the water of the West lake
To steal little bit of her beauty
Оnce time is gone
There's still the past oath given
You ask Long river water
To wash away heart sour taste
Remaining half of lover's heart
Calls no return (unable to call back, still missing you)
 
Turning myself into poetry, into a writing brush
Into light, to write to you
Reciting silently, sighing lightly
Reading those heavy words and sentences
Turning myself into roads, into paths
Into love, to find you
Love once, dream one
Missing someone most distant doesn't have a deadline
 
You ask the water of the West lake
To steal little bit of her beauty
Оnce time is gone
There's still the past oath given
You ask Long river water
To wash away heart sour taste
Remaining half of lover's heart
Calls no return (unable to call back, still missing you)
