We are all used to turn around following a trajectory

我们心中却住了个小顽童
wǒ men xīn zhōng què zhù le gè xiǎo wán tóng
Yet in our hearts resides a naughty little child

If I stick to my original wish, the dream will set off

有天终于离地双手可触碰太空

One day eventually (we’ll) get off the ground, our hands touching the space
