中国 is about my feelings as I leave China. Brokeness, denial, anger, then joy and warmth.

Track Name: 散场 (Over)
Over
1
His smile fades
Warmth freezes

So says the look of pain

Upon his face

Her shadow is still standing

Though her body is crushed
She tells some lies that she hopes
Still might come true


P
She’s left with the choice to leave

Or endure the torture
Everyone is watching her decide

C
We looked for you such a long time

Where did you go

2
She mentions the things he said

He remembers a bit
Her evidence is plentiful
“Did you make a mistake?”


She’s already said too much

But she still wants to ask

Prentending it’s not the end
But it’s already done

散场
1
他的微笑落幕了
温暖定格
他脸上的为难
也这么说

她的影子还站着
人却碎了
她撒了谎却希望
那是真的

P
她可以马上离开
或继续受折磨
人们都在等着她做选择

C
我们找了你好久
你去了哪儿

2
她提起他说的话
他记得一些
她的证据滔滔不绝
“你有没搞错?”

她已经说不出话
还想多问一些
假装还没有散场
却已结束了
Track Name: 雨天(Rain)
Rain
1
Looking at the wall, waiting for the world to reveal
The color of life
Looking out the window guessing
How each person is unique

C
Don’t keep daydreaming
Time can’t be locked away
I want to know
Why the rain came this early

2
Running so fast
But I can’t catch your expectation
Promised so much
But I’m just not lucky enough


B
I pretend it’s still my love
The rain blurs the sky
Don’t keep daydreaming

雨天
1
看着墙等世界说
生命的颜色
看着窗外猜想
陌生人的独特

C
别再发呆
时间无法锁在门外
我想知道
雨为何下得这么早

2
我跑得很快
却追不到你的期待
承诺了很多
却不能幸运多一点

B
我假装它还是我的爱
雨把天空浸成了阴霾
别再发呆
Track Name: 问(Ask)
Ask
1
Notes rush through my mind
My eyes haven’t opened
What is winter saying
The wind and I are guessing
I don’t understand

C
I’m drawn into a cold embrace
I want to break out
Blue, white, colored flakes
I know them all
I scream but no one hears

My desperation
Wait for heaven’s fire to fall
We’ll be lighted up


2
Voices come from all directions
Flowers blooming in the night
I see and know
The color of their hearts
I know

B
Between the cold and warm
Between the light and dark
Ask your heart

Just where it is
Among the fools and wise

Among the valued and the neglected
Who’s voice is it
That answers back


1
音符冲进脑海
眼睛还没醒来
冬天说着什么
风和我都在猜
我不明白

C
无言的墙已包围我
我想打破
蓝色白色灰色的雪
我都认得
我呼喊却没人听见
我的绝望
等天上的火降下来
你我点亮

2
四方飘来的话
黑夜里开的花
我看见也知道
他们心的颜色
我 知道

B
温暖寒冷之间
光线黑暗之间
问你的心
在那一边
冷静麻木之间
珍惜放纵之间
谁的声音
是你答案
Track Name: 中国(China)
China
1
Fall into memory
When I pick up the pen
To draw myself
Tidied things up
Left many things behind
How do i say it?

P
Not enough time to fully understand
But time still speaks

C
I have dreamed, and realized
A new life
Scoffed, and then smiled

Fell in love with China

2
I stand in a high place
The wounds of the past
Have already left
I'm no longer what I was
I hate to leave
Your shores

中国
1
我陷入回忆
当我拿起笔
画下自己
收拾了很多
留下了很多
该怎么说

P
不够时间再多懂一些
但时间仍再说

C
梦想过也成真过
新的生活
傻笑过也微笑过
爱上中国

2
我站在风口
过去的伤口
已经下楼
不再是从前
已舍不得离开
你的海岸
