匆匆那年我们 究竟说了几遍 再见之后再拖延
Hastily that year, how many times did we say “So long” and then postpone the breakup again
可惜谁也没有 爱过不是一场 七情上面的雄辩
But no one really stuck it out. Experiencing love is not a vehement debate about emotions and desires
匆匆那年我们 一时匆忙撂下 难以承受的诺言
Hastily that year we discarded the unbearable promise in a rush
只有等别人兑现
in the hope of waiting for other people to realize it

不怪那吻痕还 没积累成茧
Do not complain that the kiss marks didn’t accumulate into the callose yet [Do not complain that we parted before we kissed enough]
拥抱着冬眠也没能 羽化再成仙
Even if we hibernate in each other’s arms, we wouldn’t be able to ascend into the land of immortals
不怪这一段情 没空反复再排练
Do not complain that in this relationship we didn’t have time to rehearse and practice
是岁月宽容恩赐 反悔的时间
Thanks to the generosity of time, we’re blessed with a break for remorse

CHORUS:
如果再见不能红着眼 是否还能红着脸
If we were not allowed to cry when we reunite, could we still blush when we reunite?
就像那年匆促 刻下永远一起 那样美丽的谣言
Just like the year when we hastily carved the beautiful rumor of “Forever Together”
如果过去还值得眷恋 别太快冰释前嫌
If the past is still worth reminiscing, then don’t let go of the grudges too fast
谁甘心就这样 彼此无挂也无牵
Who would be willing to just get out of enmeshment and move on without a care
我们要互相亏欠 要不然凭何怀缅
We need to be indebted to each other, otherwise what do we miss each other for?

匆匆那年我们 见过太少世面 只爱看同一张脸
Hastily that year, we had so little experience of life that we craved the same face
那么莫名其妙 那么讨人欢喜 闹起来又太讨厌
So inexplicable, so pleasing [when we were in love], and so annoying when we fought
相爱那年活该 匆匆因为我们 不懂顽固的诺言
We asked for it because we were in love that year. Our love vanished in a hurry because we didn’t understand that the headstrong promise
只是分手的前言
was only a prelude to breakup

不怪那天太冷 泪滴水成冰
Do not complain that it was so frigid that day that tears dropped and froze
春风也一样没 吹进凝固的照片
Even if the spring breeze couldn’t breathe life into those those photos
不怪每一个人 没能完整爱一遍
Do not blame that people did not love from start to finish
是岁月善意落下 残缺的悬念
It was a fragmented suspense left by time thanks to its kindness

CHORUS x2

我们要互相亏欠
We need to be indebted to each other
我们要藕断丝连
We need to stay connected despite separation

我知道这不可能
wǒ zhī dào zhè bù kě néng
I know this is not possible,

决不可能 怎么可能呢
jué bù kě néng  zěn me kě néng ne
absolutely impossible. How [can it be] possible?

你的苦闷 我在追问
nǐ de kǔ mèn  wǒ zài zhuī wèn
Your anguish, [about which] I keep asking

答案总让人心疼
dá àn zǒng ràng rén xīn téng
The answer is always poignant

梦境里藏着你的样子
mèng jìng lǐ cáng zhe nǐ de yàng zi
In my dream hides your face

害羞的甜蜜 红了脸
hài xiū de tián mì  hóng le liǎn
The sweetness of shyness, [for which I] blush

CHORUS:
可能我 想太多 所以我 话太多
kě néng wǒ  xiǎng tài duō  suǒ yǐ wǒ  huà tài duō
Maybe I think too much, so I talk too much

听我听我说
tīng wǒ shuō tīng wǒ shuō
Listen to me, listen to me

可能我 沉默了 是因为 没把握
kě néng wǒ  chén mò le  shī yīn wèi  méi bǎ wò
Maybe I quiet down, because I am not sure

你懂 你懂 么
nǐ dǒng  nǐ dǒng me
Do you understand, do you understand?

也许你并不认真
yě xǔ nǐ bìng bú rèn zhēn
Maybe you are not serious

只是苦闷 找个人陪你疯
zhǐ shì kǔ mèn  zhǎo gè rén péi nǐ fēng
You are just gloomy, [you just want to] find someone to do crazy things with you

我们本身 都是路人
wǒ men běn shēn dōu shì lù rén
We by nature, are just passers-by

却忘了不必等
què wàng le  bú bì děng
but we forgot there’s no need to wait [for each other]

眼角里藏着你的样子
yǎn jiǎo lǐ cáng zhe nǐ de yàng zi
In the corners of the eyes hides your face

埋一个想像 等你回应
mái yí gè xiǎng xiàng  děng nǐ huí yìng
Embed an imagined [scenario], wait for your response
