李: 一扇门 一盏灯 继续看没有看完的剧本
lǐ: yí shàn mén  yì zhǎn dēng  jì xù kàn méi yǒu kàn wán de jù běn
Li: A door, a lamp, keep reading the script I haven’t finished

快尾声 剧太温 谁用文言文哀悼 谁怎么牺牲
kuài wěi shēng  jù tài wēn  shuí yòng wén yán wén āi dào  shuí zěn me xī shēng
[Sometimes the story] ends fast, [sometimes it] is too slow-paced, Who was moaning in classical Chinese? How did somebody sacrifice oneself?

陈 : 翻阅过 的生活 愤怒 发呆 叙述 沉默 啰嗦
chén: fān yuè guò de shēng huó  fèn nù  fā dāi  xù shù  chén mò  luō suō
Chen: The life I have browsed—anger, daze, naration, silence, verbosity

滴上了 纸的墨 积雪的窝 蚂蚁没觉得不妥
dī shàng le zhǐ de mò  jī xuě de wō  mǎ yǐ méi jué dé bù tuǒ
The ink that dropped on the paper, the [ant] colony that filled with snow—but the ants don’t feel uncomfortable

合: 一杯水多清澈 记得一切是错 自卑流泪是正果
hé: yì bēi shuǐ duō qīng chè  jì dé yí qiè shì cuò  zì bēi liú lèi shì zhèng guǒ
Both: How limpid a glass of water is. Remembering everything is a mistake. Low self-esteem and tears are the right result

合: 什么最不独特 什么事深刻 流离浪荡演戏唱歌
hé: shén me zuì bù dú tè  shén me shì shēn kè  liú lí làng dàng yǎn xì chàng gē
Both: What’s least unique? What’s deep? Loitering, lusting, acting, singing

lǐ: yǎn yuán hé gē shǒu  huàn le jìng tóu rēng diào le mài kè fēng

李: 演员和歌手 这样的年头 说理想没够 也不是作秀
lǐ: yǎn yuán hé gē shǒu  zhè yàng de nián tóu  shuō lǐ xiǎng méi gòu  yě bú shì zuò xiù
Li: Actors and singers—in this era, talking about dreams is not enough, neither is it [talking about dreams] for publicity’s sake

合: 学文艺戏里男人说的自由
hé: xué wén yì xì lǐ nán rén shuō de zì yóu
Both: Learning [to pursue] the freedom the men talked about in the artistic drama [referring to art films or art film-like TV drama]

陈: 一首歌 在附和 没想学着只是听的太多
chén: yì shǒu gē  zāi fù hé  měi xiǎng xué zhe zhǐ shì tīng de tài duō
Chen: A song with which I’m singing along, I didn’t plan to learn the song but I’ve heard it too many times

刚副歌 就结果 没有安宁没有爱 却多了选择
gāng fù gē  jiù jié guǒ  méi yǒu ān níng  méi yǒu ài  què duō le xuǎn zé
The chorus just began, but the song is ending. There’s no peace or love, but there come more choices—

李: 又摆酒 又奔波 又祝贺我又接济了娱乐
lǐ: yòu bǎi jiǔ  yòu bēn bō  yòu zhù hè wǒ yòu jiē jì le yú lè
Li: preparing the feast again, on the go again, congratulating me again on assisting the entertainment [industry] again

生了根 分了神 天真演的婀娜也可以诚恳
shēng le gēn  fēn le shén  tiān zhēn yǎn de ē nuó yě kě yǐ chéng kěn
After taking root [in the show business], [I] began to get distracted. [I can] play innocent gracefully, [I can] also be sincere

合: 一杯水多清澈 记得一切是错 自卑流泪是正果
hé: yì bēi shuǐ duō qīng chè  jì dé yí qiè shì cuò  zì bēi liú lèi shì zhèng guǒ
Both: How limpid a glass of water is. Remembering everything is a mistake. Low self-esteem and tears are the right results

合:演员和歌手 慢几步迟到 追丢了自嘲 模糊了对焦
hé: yǎn yuán hé gē shǒu  màn jǐ bù chí dào  zhuī diū le zì cháo  mó hu le duì jiāo
Both: Actors and singers—[if they’re] slow by a few steps, they’ll be late; [if they’re] not able to catch up, they’ll mock themselves for having blurred focus [losing goals]

 

合:伸手示意友好在几楼微笑
hé: shēn shǒu shì yì yǒu hǎo zài jǐ lóu wēi xiào

曲:宋冬野 (Composer: Song Dongye)
词:宋冬野 (Lyrics: Song Dongye)
演唱:宋冬野 (Singer: Song Dongye)

董小姐 你从没忘记你的微笑
dǒng xiǎo jiě nǐ cóng méi wàng jì nǐ de wēi xiào
Miss Dong, you never forget your smile

就算你和我一样 渴望着衰老
jiù suàn nǐ hé wǒ yí yàng kě wàng zhe shuāi lǎo
Even though you are like me, eager to age

董小姐 你嘴角向下的时候很美
dǒng xiǎo jiě nǐ zuǐ jiǎo xiàng xià de shí hou hěn měi
Miss Dong, when the corners of your mouth curve downward, it’s so beautiful

就像安和桥下 清澈的水
jiù xiàng ān hé qiáo xià qīng chè de shuǐ
just like the limpid water under the Anhe bridge

董小姐 我也是个复杂的动物
dǒng xiǎo jiě wǒ yě shì gè fù zá de dòng wù
Miss Dong, I too am a complicated animal

嘴上一句带过 心里却一直重复
zuǐ shàng yí jù dài guò xǐn lǐ què yì zhí chóng fù
[I] gloss over [many things] in speech, but replay them over and over in my mind

董小姐 鼓楼的夜晚时间匆匆
dǒng xiǎo jiě gǔ lóu de yè wǎn shí jiān cōng cōng
Miss Dong, that evening near Gulou, time fled

陌生的人 请给我一支兰州
mò shēng de rén qǐng gěi wǒ yì zhī lán zhōu
Stranger, please give me a Lanzhou [cigarette]

CHORUS:
所以那些可能都不是真的 董小姐
suǒ yǐ nà xiē kě néng dōu bú shì zhēn de dǒng xiǎo jiě
So probably all those things are not true, Miss Dong

你才不是一个没有故事的女同学
nǐ cái bú shì yí gè méi yǒu gù shì de nǚ tóng xué
You are not a female classmate with no stories

[Note: It is popular to address the peers by “classmate” among young people.]

爱上一匹野马 可我的家里没有草原
ài shàng yì pǐ yě mǎ kě wǒ de jiā lǐ méi yǒu cǎo yuán
Fall in love with a wild horse, but there is no prairie in my house

这让我感到绝望 董小姐
zhè ràng wǒ gǎn dào jué wàng dǒng xiǎo jiě
This makes me feel depressed, Miss Dong

董小姐 你熄灭了烟 说起从前
dǒng xiǎo jiě nǐ xī miè le yān shuō qǐ cóng qián
Miss Dong, you put out a cigarette, and started talking about the past

你说前半生就这样吧 还有明天
nǐ shuō qián bàn shēng jiù zhè yàng ba hái yǒu míng tiān
You said: The first half of your life—just let it be—there’s still a tomorrow.

董小姐 你可知道我说够了再见
dǒng xiǎo jiě nǐ kě zhī dào wǒ shuō gòu le zài jiàn
Miss Dong, do you know that I’ve said enough goodbyes

在五月的早晨 终于丢失了睡眠
zài wǔ yuè de zǎo chén zhōng yú diū shī le shuì mián
And on a May morning, I finally lost sleep

CHORUS

所以那些可能都会是真的 董小姐
suǒ yǐ nà xiē kě néng dōu huì shì zhēn de dǒng xiǎo jiě
So those things may all be true, Miss Dong

谁会不厌其烦的安慰那无知的少年
shuí huì bú yàn qí fán de ān wèi nà wú zhī de shāo nián
Who will tirelessly comfort that ignorant teenager?

我想和你一样 不顾那些所以
wǒ xiǎng hé nǐ yí yàng bú gù nà xiē suǒ yǐ
I want to be like you, ignoring all those things. So,

跟我走吧 董小姐 燥起来吧 董小姐
gēn wǒ zǒu ba dǒng xiǎo jiě zào qǐ lái bā dǒng xiǎo jiě
go with me, Miss Dong. Cheer up, Miss Dong
