I specifically opened a thread for this translation...cause it took the help of 2 people and over 3 days, 2 nights to finish Freeze

This song is like a literary piece X_X
It uses a lot of Buddhism philisophoy with reincarnation and past lifetimes...and AH X_X Dead

I tried to translate the general meaning of the song, but still sticking with some of the literal meaning!

Hope you guys will enjoy the lyrics cause I tried to google to see if anyone else tried to translate it and no one did, so I guess they either all died translating it or no one has that much free time to do this lol XD

(*)The cold stars and moon are separated by the fog outside the window.
I face the faintly flickering candle during the long night.
The person in the mirror looks full of worry
With hair uncombed, without makeup, and frowning eyebrows.
Since ancient times, the passionate ones had always been mistaken by the heartless.
My longing travels deeply throughout the body.
After the drawn out years of winter and summer, we become strangers on the road.

(**)I am the rock of three lives and you are the roads of three lives, but our fate of three lifetimes return to the starting point.
I hope there's only longing, not disappointment the next time we meet again.
When we do, I hope it will be like old times.

Who will appreciate this beauty as beautiful as a flower? Life without you is only a waste.
So fast that time flows like water that it arouses envy in others. Life with you conquers over everything.
I am still reading the farewell letter from the last lifetime in this life.
I hold our token of love handed down through the ages, but where are you now?

Without you, I can't see you, I won't see you yet, so to whom can I speak my affection to?
Without you, to whom do I tell my feelings to?

(*) Repeat

(**) Repeat

Who will appreciate this beauty as beautiful as a flower?Life without you is only a waste.
So fast that time flows like water that it arouses envy in others. Life with you conquers over everything.
I am still reading the farewell letter from the last lifetime in this life.
I hold our token of love handed down through the ages, but where are you now?
Because of you, our love becomes the most perfect of a thousand ages.

Who said that we should not waste our youth? Life without you is only a waste.
Who said that we should not disappoint our beloved? Life with you conquers over everything.
I am still reading the farewell letter from the last lifetime in this life.
I hold our token of love handed down through the ages, but where are you now?

I am still reading the farewell letter from the last lifetime in this life.
But in which life will I see your reincarnation again?
Without you, I can't see you, I won't see you yet, so to whom can I speak my affection to?
Because of you, our love becomes the most perfect of a thousand ages.


T/N: The importance of the rock and the road is that a road is made from rocks, so figuratively, this song is staying how these 2 people's lives are intertwined and that one completes the other.

She most definitely did not write these lyrics
alan rarely write her own Chinese lyrics....

And I did have a hard time X_X
It was hard trying to find the balance between translating the figurative meaning and the literal meaning...so I tried lol
