無常 this song calms me down

Mild coolness of the nighttime breeze
dancing trees, the moon, the clouds
flying above,
I’m pondering…

Water flows by,
The Aroma of Flowers,
My mind is the colour of the night…

Anxiety within happiness,
Light hidden amongst darkness,
Teach me how to get things straight?

Infields,
Barrows,
Desolation in an awesome way

Ooh, transitory…


Look at the lakes, the mountains, the blue sky, the aspens,
Endlessly, quiescently

Look Sky’s blue,
the green waves,
the sunglow, the aurora,

You’ll be driven to take up a faster pace,
Saving the hopes for the disappointed…




Faye Wong's lyrics (王菲), my own translation...
