VERSE #1:

没那么简单 就能找到 聊得来的伴
méi nà me jiǎn dān jiù néng zhǎo dào liáo de lái de bàn
It’s not that simple to find a companion you can talk to

尤其是在 看过了那么多的背叛
yóu qí shì zài kàn guò le nà me duō de bèi pàn
especially after seeing so many betrayals

总是不安 只好强悍
zǒng shì bù ān zhǐ hǎo qiáng hàn
Always worried, I can only be strong

谁谋杀了我的浪漫
shuí móu shā le wǒ de làng màn
Who murdered my romantic side?

 
VERSE #2:

没那么简单 就能去爱 别的全不看
méi nà me jiǎn dān jiù néng qù ài bié de quán bú kàn
It’s not that simple to just love without looking at other things at all

变得实际 也许好也许坏各一半
biàn de shí jì yé xǔ hǎo yě xǔ huài
I became pragmatic, maybe the pros and cons are just equivalent

不爱孤单 一久也习惯
bú ài gū dān yì jiǔ yě xí guàn
I didn’t like loneliness, but I got used to it after a time

不用担心谁 也不用被谁管
bú yòng dān xīn shuí yě bú yòng bèi shuí guǎn
No need to worry about anyone, nor be controlled by anyone

 
PRE CHORUS:

感觉快乐就忙东忙西
gǎn jué kuài lè jiù máng dōng máng xī
When I feel happy, I can keep busy myself with this or that

感觉累了就放空自己
gǎn jué lèi le jiù fàng kōng zì jǐ
When I feel tired, I can just empty my mind

别人说的话 随便听一听 自己作决定
bié rén shuō de huà suí biàn tīng yì tīng zì jǐ zuò jué dìng
Other people’s words, I listen without taking them seriously, and make the decision on my own

不想拥有太多情绪
bù xiǎng yōng yǒu tài duō qíng xù
I don’t want to have too many emotions

一杯红酒配电影
yì bēi hóng jiǔ pèi diàn yǐng
A cup of red wine with a movie

在周末晚上 关上了手机 舒服窝在沙发里
zài zhōu mò wǎn shàng guān shàng le shǒu jī shū fú wō zài shā fā lǐ
On weekend evenings, turn off the cell phone, and nestle into the couch

 
CHORUS:

相爱没有那么容易 每个人有他的脾气
xiāng ài méi yǒu nà me róng yì měi gè rén yǒu tā de pí qi
It’s not that simple for two people to fall in love, everyone has their temperament

过了爱作梦的年纪 轰轰烈烈不如平静
guò le ài zuò mèng de nián ji hōng hōng liè liè bù rú píng jìng
I am past the age of being a dreamer, excitement is not as good as tranquility

幸福没有那么容易 才会特别让人着迷
xìng fú méi yǒu nà me róng yì cái huì tè bié ràng rén zháo mí
Happiness is not that simple [to get], but that’s also why it’s that fascinating

什么都不懂的年纪
shén me dōu bù dǒng de nián ji
When I was at the age when I knew nothing

曾经最掏心 所以最开心 曾经
céng jīng zuì tāo xin suǒ yǐ zuì kāi xīn céng jīng
I used to bare my heart the most, so the happiest [I ever was], was then

I miss the saddest yet the most moving memories
