北京的冬天 (Běi jīng de dōng tiān) (English translation)

Winter of Beijing

The winter of Beijing
When lips turn dry and cracked
Someone begins to worry
About his old past friends
Before the day, when the north wind came in
The migratory birds have flown quite far
Our love has become a relentless waiting
 
In the cold morning
Linger the solitary sunbeams on roads
Among the mutually squeezing crowds
Is the girl who disappointed me
When we pass by in hurry
I can't discern your countenance
So on my way I fantasize about our reunion
 
The winter of Beijing, when snow floats
This season swirling, overwhelmingly attractive to me
The winter of longing for you, when snow floats
The lost yore, overwhelmingly attractive to me
 
The snowy night is a heaven for the lonely ones
Alone in streets, evading all joyful festival spots
In the distant city, is there someone like me
Standing before a window, fantasizing about the other dream
 
The winter of Beijing, when snow floats
This season swirling, overwhelmingly attractive to me
The winter of longing for you, when snow floats
The lost yore, overwhelmingly attractive to me
 
Thanks!
