Moonlake’s Lyrics (3)

A little change of pace for today’s lyrics post. Instead of liking it for delving into life philosophies and themes, this one drew me because of it told a tale, a somewhat wistful tale of love and reincarnation. It’s also a relatively new song, in Mandarin and its title is “the Love of a Thousand years”, sung by a male and female Taiwanese singer together.

(F): Who made a pot of tea on a cliff       warming the longing from the previous life?

Whilst I’m adjusting for the “jet lag” of a thousand years               drinking in all the loves and hatreds

(M): Years are hammering at the rocks  I’m leaving my hair long again

Waiting patiently for changes in the coastline                     a heavy rain is about to fall

(F): The Wind is blowing fiercely

(M): Who is afraid at this moment?

(F): The sea breeze had always been yearning for the sands        yet you’ve missed the best years of my life

Missed the branches and shoots that I’ve newly grown                 and my white hair

(M): Butterflies are still wildly in love with flowers            yet you’ve missed the best years of my life

Missed my reincarnated face     do you still love me         I’m waiting for an answer from you

(F): I’ve been always been looking at the cliffs that broke up the sky whenever I walked,

the farthest sight I’ve seen is merely the sunsets

I’m wondering into which family you were born into this life       my tears fall before I can utter a word

(M): The vanished sprays on the beach                 makes me think of home in a gradual way

Where is the forever that has been promised    I can never put it down

(F&M): Oh          The memories from reincarnations are dwindling in the winds

Yet I will be remembering them deeply

(F&M): The sea breeze had always been yearning for the sands                yet you’ve missed the best years of my life

Missed the branches and shoots that I’ve newly grown                 and my white hair

*Butterflies are still wildly in love with flowers  yet you’ve missed the best years of my life

Missed my reincarnated face     do you still love me         I’m waiting for an answer from you

Repeat *

By the way, I saw that my followers had finally reached the two digits recently. And I would like to say a big thank you to all of my followers given that I post but sparsely and is quite a shy person whether in person or online.
