~ Alice in Wonderland quote. Cheshire Cat to Alice.

I do not blog about my life. This is a journal of random thoughts of whatever interests me.
A temporary spot of existence where memories are stored for a period of time until they are forgotten...

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh", he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."
~ Winnie the Pooh quote

Hoping to be a bit more organise with things around here, before it gets too late :) Lyric translations are indexed according to artist's chinese pinyin surname or the name they are famously known by, or the first character in a band's name. Click on the song title to be directed to their respective translation post. Requests will continue to be taken here, as I would like to keep commenting on this master post disabled.

Thank you for all the encouraging comments so far, I'm pretty proud of this list ♥

I love Winnie Hsin's voice. This is a track on her newest album just released this month.

辛晓琪 Winnie Hsin (Xiao Qi) - 听寂寞说 Lonesome Talks

Though the past is beautiful
It is but the past
Feelings from those years ago
Are probably just as half forgotten
And the 'us' of the future? We're still breathing
We bring along a suitcase of happiness
Where ever our travels take us

Leave those bittersweet times behind, people must move on
After a journey taken on rough gravel roads
Do we then realise the preciousness of the ordinary

Later, I would often listen to this loneliness alone
It said - sign your name and let me go
What about you? Will you be willing to wave goodbye to yesterday with a smile?
Destiny continues to move along, its enough to just try your best
No matter how far one flies, we have to descend (back to reality) eventually

The tears that evaporate?
Perhaps they don't matter no more
Time, it said to me -
It is time to be happy
Memories that remain in our hearts
Leave them be (Don't say)

Let time etch your outline in forever

Clouds frozen in the air
Flipping through the books written by time
Handwriting clear yet blurred
The wind records -
This path winding from the unknown

The horizon below your feet gradually disappears
If I forget myself how will I reach (my destination)
The wind blowing from across valleys and mountains stings my face
I see the ultimate end but I hear no answers still

Rain falling downwards
Till the fire and blood go cold
Till no one remembers that you once existed
Snow falling hurriedly
Burying those silent secrets

Do not touch the flowers blooming from bone remains
Dozens of tattered images flash before that moment
Do not forget the cliff that stands in impassive silence in the dark night
Hesitation and disorientation are the consequence of having forgotten

Smiles flicker like breaths
The sun rises the moon wanes in your eyes
Trudging across how many a centuries
Pursuing the scars left behind

The one in the mirror, which is truly me?
Most unfamiliar yet most familiar, truths that cannot be touched upon

So let time etch your outline in forever
At that flash of moment the tattoo spreads across your chest
So let time carry the light in your eyes forever
Glancing back through the smog of lies and truths

[He may know all, but he will never know himself]
