关起满室 不足的氧气
I closed the door, despite the lack of oxygen
点着烟蒂 回味你的呼吸
I lit up a cigar butt and recalled your breath

搜索脑里 未完的龃龉
I jogged my memory for those unresolved spats
对着空气 还击着你的问题
and threw into the air my rebuttal to your questioning

推辞每次 真实的相聚
I put off every opportunity to meet you in real life
困着自己 渴望着你的消息
I had myself caged up, yearning for news about you

沾沾自喜 拒绝的魅力
I took pride in my charm of being able to reject you
不着痕迹 享受着与你的距离
I enjoyed the distance that I inperceptibly kept from you

也许喜欢怀念你 多于看见你
Perhaps I prefer missing you to meeting you
我也许喜欢想象你 多于得到你
Perhaps I prefer imagining you to getting you

我关起满室 不足的氧气
I closed the door, despite the lack of oxygen
点着烟蒂 回味你的呼吸
I lit up a cigar butt and recalled your breath

散落一地 断续的谜语
Scattered all around the floor were some incoherent riddles
对着空气 还击着你的问题
I threw my rebuttal to your questioning into the air

推辞每次 真实的相聚
I put off every opportunity to meet you in real life
困着自己 渴望着你的消息
I had myself caged up, yearning for news about you

翻来覆去 甜蜜的话语
Sliding back and forth on my mind were the sweet words of love
故作神秘 延续着你的好奇
but I pretended to be mysterious only to prolong your curiosity

也许喜欢怀念你 多于看见你
Perhaps I prefer missing you to meeting you
我也许喜欢想象你 不需要抱着你
Perhaps I just like imagining you but I don’t need to hold you in my arms

啊~~~啊~~~
Ah~~~ah~~~

也许喜欢怀念你 多于看见你
Perhaps I prefer missing you to meeting you
我也许喜欢想象你 受不了真一起 啊~~~~
Perhaps I just like imagining you but I can’t stand being with you Ah~~~
