我在人民广场吃炸鸡-阿肆 (I’m Eating Fried Chicken at People’s Square-A Si)

I'm Eating Fried Chicken at People's Square by A Si

曲:阿肆 (Composer: A Si) 词:阿肆 (Lyrics: A Si) 演唱:阿肆 (Singer: A Si) MV: 我在人民广场吃炸鸡-阿肆 (I’m Eating Fried Chicken at People’s Square-A Si)

[Note: This is how to pronounce the singer’s name 阿肆 in Pinyin: ā sì. ā sounds like “ah”. sì does not sound like “see”; it sounds like making a hissing sound—”ssssssss”—with the confirmative tone of “see”.]

VERSE #1:
最近你变得很冷漠
zuì jìn nǐ biàn de hěn lěng mò
Recently you became very cold

让我有些不知所措
ràng wǒ yǒu xiē bù zhī suǒ cuò
which left me somehow not knowing what to do

其实我没期待太多
qí shí wǒ méi qī dài tài duō
Actually I don’t expect too much

你能像从前般爱我
nǐ néng xiàng cóng qián bān ài wǒ
[I just expect that] you can love me like before

只是连约会你都逃脱
zhǐ shì lián yuē huì nǐ dōu táo tuō
But you even escaped from our dates

什么解释都不说
shén me jiě shì dōu bù shuō
without giving any explanation

VERSE #2:
不是我不知道
bú shì wǒ bù zhī dào
It’s not that I don’t know

爱情需要煎熬
ài qíng xū yào jiān áo
that love requires endurance

不是我没祈祷
bú shì wǒ méi qǐ dǎo
It’s not that I didn’t pray

(你只是……迟到)
nǐ zhǐ shì…chí dào
(that you were just…being late)

CHORUS #1:
我在人民广场吃着炸鸡
wǒ zài rén mín guǎng chǎng chī zhe zhà jī
I’m eating fried chicken at People’s Square

而此时此刻你在哪里
ér cǐ shí cǐ kè nǐ zài nǎ lǐ
But at this very moment where are you?

虽然或许你在声东击西
suī rán huò xǔ nǐ zài shēng dōng jī xī
Although perhaps you are making a feint to the east but attack in the west [appearing to do one thing while actually aiming at the other]

但疲倦已让我懒得怀疑
dàn pí juàn yǐ ràng wǒ lǎn de huái yí
But exhaustion has made me too lazy to suspect

CHORUS #2:
我在人民广场吃着炸鸡
wǒ zài rén mín guǎng chǎng chī zhe zhǎ jī
I’m eating fried chicken at People’s Square

而此时此刻 你在哪里
ér cǐ shí cǐ kè nǐ zài nǎ lǐ
But at this very moment where are you?

But at this very moment you are…

而此时此刻 你在
ér cǐ shí cǐ kè nǐ zài
But at this very moment you are…

曲:常石磊 (Composer: Chang Shilei)

Mountain top, just follow me

没有什么阻挡着未来
Nothing can stop the future from coming by

Nothing can stop the future from coming by

yi yi yi你不在 我不在
