愿意合上眼 才能美梦无边
yuàn yì hé shàng yǎn cái néng měi mèng wú biān
Only when you are willing to close your eyes can you have boundless sweet dreams

别让悔 熏乌了从前
bié ràng huǐ xūn wū le cóng qián
Don’t let your remorse soot the memories of the past

也许碎片 才能让回忆展颜
yě xǔ suì piàn cái néng ràng huí yì zhǎn yán
Perhaps only the shattered porcelain shards can let you reminisce

何妨瓷花 拼凑明天
hé fáng cí huā pīn còu míng tiān
so why not let the shards piece together a tomorrow

谁带我寻获 幸福的模
shuí dài wǒ xún huò xìng fú de mó
Who led me to find the mold of happiness

却自己 谜中困锁
què zì jǐ mí zhōng kùn suǒ
but was then confined in the riddle?

谁为我留下 缱绻的天涯
shuí wèi wǒ liú xià qiǎn quǎn de tiān yà
Who left me with a world of lasting longing

信物 是抹晚霞
xìn wù shì mǒ wǎn xiá
and the keepsake was the last glow of sunset

Chorus:

思念如燕 它飞舞舌尖
sī niàn rú yàn tā fēi wǔ shé jiān
My longing is like a swallow that flutters on the tip of my tongue

若是真爱 配尝几分苦甜
ruò shì zhēn ài pèi cháng jǐ fēn kǔ tián
If it were true love, how much bitterness and sweetness would I deserve to taste

意念婆娑 时间里推磨
yì niàn pó suō shí jiān lǐ tuī mò
Thoughts of you dance and whirl, linger and grind in a span of time

追随到何处才结果
zhuī suí dào hé chù cái jié guǒ
At what point would they end their chase after me?

燕如针线 在青空缝编
yàn rú zhēn xiàn zài qīng kōng féng biān
The swallow is like a threaded needle, sewing and weaving in the azure sky

几幅女红将以泪缀点
jǐ fú nv3 gōng jiāng yǐ lèi zhuì diǎn
How many pieces of needlework will be decorated by my tears?

誓言斑驳 情雾只是经过
shì yán bān bó qíng wù zhǐ shì jīng guò
The promises have been mottled, as the mist of love was just passing by

风雨中且让我 盈步 婀娜
fēng yǔ zhōng qiě ràng wǒ yíng bù ē nuó
In the storm, please allow me to walk softly and gracefully

Repeat

Chorus x2
