VERSE #1:
红颜若是只为一段情
hóng yán ruò shì zhǐ wèi yí duàn qíng
If a young lady is committed to only one relationship

就让一生只为这段情
jiù ràng yì shēng zhǐ wèi zhè duàn qíng
She would just let her whole life exist for this relationship,

一生只爱一个人
yì shēng zhǐ ài yí gè rén
All her life she loves only one person,

一世只怀一种愁
yí shì zhǐ huái yì zhǒng chóu
All her life she embraces only one kind of sorrow [the sorrow of pining away for her love]

VERSE #2:
纤纤小手让你握着

Allow the delicate hand to be held by you

把它握成你的袖

Hold it until it becomes your sleeve [indicate the wish to be inseparable from one’s partner)

纤纤小手让你握着

jiě nǐ de chóu nǐ de yōu
[Let it] untie your worries, your sorrow

REPEAT VERSE #1

啊……啊……
a…a…
Ah…ah…

啊……啊……
a…a…
Ah…ah…

CHORUS #1:
自古多余恨的是我
zì gǔ duō yú hèn de shì wǒ
[The romantic people,] since time immemorial, tend to have plenty of regrets. That’s me.

[Note: “Since time immemorial, [the romantic] tend to have plenty of regrets” is probably from a poem in Qing Dynasty novelist 魏子安 Wei Zi’an’s 《花月痕》”Traces of Flowers and the Moon”: 多情自古空余恨,好梦由來最易醒 “The romantic, since time immemorial, the romantic tend to have plenty of regrets, good dreams are always easy to wake up from.”]

千金换一笑的是我
qiān jīn huàn yí xiào de shì wǒ
Give a thousand pieces of gold in exchange for one smile. That’s me

是是非非恩恩怨怨都是我
shì shì fēi fēi ēn ēn yuàn yuàn dōu shì wǒ
Right and wrong, gratitude and resentment. I will take them all

只有那感动的是我
zhǐ yǒu nà gǎn dòng de shì wǒ
The only one who is moved is me

只有那感动的是你
zhǐ yǒu nà gǎn dòng de shì nǐ
The only one who is moved is you

生来为了认识你之后
shēng lái wèi le rèn shí nǐ zhī hòu
I came to this world to know you and then

与你分离
yǔ nǐ fēn lí
to part with you

CHORUS #2:
以前忘了告诉你
yǐ qián wàng le gào sù nǐ
In the past, I forgot to tell you

最爱的是你
zuì ài de shì nǐ
The one I love the most is you

现在想起来
xiàn zài xiǎng qǐ lái
Now I think of it

最爱的是你
zuì ài de shì nǐ
The one I love the most is you

REPEAT CHORUS #2

红颜难免多情
hóng yán nán miǎn duō qíng
Fair laies are inevitably romantic

你竟和我一样
nǐ jìng hé wǒ yí yàng
I didn’t know that you are just like me

[Note: The original singer of this song is Michelle Pan.]
