Moonlake’s Lyrics (2)

Another making-up-for-word-count post. This one is a little morose but I love it because it contains one-liners that touches on the human truism about choice and again, the theme of gain and loss. It’s another Chinese old song (truth be told, the lyrics of old songs appeal to me more. 90% of new songs are love/break up songs and I much prefer songs that are just about life in general).

 

*How could the interchange of coldness and warmth stop?

How many autumns have passed when I turn back?

Losing something that I’ve search over,

Having something in hand that I never expected.

Have I gained or not? There’s no way to explain gains, losses and missing things by mistake.

A change occurs after I’ve just seen and heard something for certain,

I do not know where I should go to seek the cause.

 

What is it that you desire throughout your life?

Always making judgements about giving up and possessing.

Using up the whole of my life, it already ran past me before I could lay hands on it.

What is it that you desire throughout your life?

Never been able to see through in my confusion.

I have not expected that what I lost

Is actually already all that I have.

 

Repeat *

 

What is it that you desire throughout your life?

I have made compromises as well as struggled hard.

When every single points of brilliancy in the dreams fades,

How can they be captured and stored?

What is it that you desire throughout your life?

Who is parsimonious over praises and curses?

I have not expected that what I lost

Is actually already all that I have.
