星空 [Starry Sky] – 五月天 [Mayday]

3 Sep

Starry starry night

I’m sad to say I just discovered Mayday [now I have downloaded 3 of their albums and I love them!] A few days ago I watched a Taiwanese movie called “星空” or  “Starry starry night” in English.  It’s a beautiful movie and it so happened that the ending song was none other than Mayday’s Starry Sky. It was what I call “love at first listen”. I was already in love with the song at the first notes. As I know no Mandarin, I had no idea what the lyrics meant so of course I had to search for the translation and boom! My heart and ears were just captivated. The lyrics are so beautiful and common yet poetical. Who hasn’t looked up at at starry sky and just been captivated by it? Well, I have. I have always loved to look at the stars… and so many of the feelings in this song just reach out to me. Blah! I’m rambling… I’ll just stop and post the song already. ♥

Chinese lyrics

摸不到的颜色是否叫彩虹?

 

看不到的拥抱是否叫做微风?

 

一个人想着一个人是否就叫寂寞?

 

 

命运偷走如果只留下结果

 

时间偷走初衷只留下了苦衷

 

你来过然後你走後只留下星空

 

那一年我们望着星空有那麽多的灿烂的梦

 

以为快乐会永久像不变星空陪着我

 

 

猎户天狼织女光年外静默

 

回忆青春梦想何时偷偷陨落?

 

我爱过然後我沈默人海里漂流

 

 

那一年我们望着星空未来的未来从没想过

 

当故事失去美梦美梦失去线索而我们失去联络

 

 

这一片无言无语星空为什麽静静看我泪流 ?

 

如果你在的时候会不会伸手拥抱我 ?

 

细数繁星闪烁细数此生奔波

 

原来所有所得所获不如一夜的星空

 

空气中的温柔回忆你的笑容

 

彷佛只要伸手就能触摸

 

 

摸不到的颜色是否叫彩虹?

 

看不到的拥抱是否叫做微风?

 

一个人习惯一个人

 

 

这一刻独自望着星空从前的从前从没变过

 

寂寞可以是忍受也可以是享受享受仅有的拥有

 

 

那一年我们望着星空有那麽多的灿烂的梦

 

至少回忆会永久像不变星空陪着我

 

 

最後只剩下星空像不变回忆陪着我.

English Translation

Is the colour that can’t be touched known as the rainbow?

Is the hug you can’t see known as the breeze?

Is one thinking of another known as loneliness?

 

Fate stole the possibilities, only leaving behind the outcome

Time stole the original intentions, only leaving behind hardships

You came and you left, leaving the starry sky

 

That year we looked up at the starry sky

With so many magnificent dreams

We thought happiness would last forever

Accompanying me like the unchanging starry sky

 

The Orion, Sirius and Weaver are silent outside the light years

When did memories, youth and dreams secretly fall from the sky

I loved, and then I kept silent, drifting in the crowd

 

That year we looked up at the starry sky

Never thought of the future beyond the future

When stories lose the dreams

And dreams lose the clues

And we lose contact

 

This piece of silent starry sky

Why does it quietly look at my tears trickling down

If you were here

Would you reach out and give me a hug?

 

Carefully counting the twinkling stars and challenges of this life

I realised all that I own, received and gained

Are no better than the starry night sky

 

Gentleness in the air, reminiscing your smile

As though I can touch you if I reach out my hand

 

Is the colour that can’t be touched known as the rainbow?

Is the hug you can’t see known as the breeze?

I’ve gotten used to being alone

 

Looking up at the starry sky alone at this moment

The former days once upon a time has never changed

Loneliness can be both tolerance and enjoyment

Enjoying the only things we have

 

That year we looked up at the starry sky

With so many magnificent dreams

At least memories are eternal

Accompanying me like the unchanging starry sky

 

In the end I’m only left with the starry sky

Accompanying me like the unchanging memories.
