First time to view at Tokyo Tower
zai dong jing tie ta, di yi ci tiao wang
Lights are imitating the falling starlights
kan deng huo mo fang, zui luo de xing guang
Finally, I have arrived here but with more sadness (than I didn't)
wo zhong yu dao da, dan que geng bei shang
Our dream was reached, but by myself
yi ge ren wan cheng, wo men de meng xiang
You had always said that we still had a lot of time
ni zhong shuo, shi jian hai hen duo
You would wait for me
ni ke yi deng wo
In the past, I didn't know
yi qian wo bu dong de
that tomorrows does not necessarily gurarantee the future
wei bi ming tian, jiu you yi hou
* Missing (you) is like a pain that know how to breathe
xiang nian shi hui hu xi de tong
It lives everywhere inside me
ta huo zai wo shen shang suo you jiao luo
It's painful when I sing the the songs you love
heng ni ai de ge hui tong
It's painful when I read your letters, and even when I am in silence
kan ni de xin hui tong, lian chen mo ye tong
Regret is like a pain that know how to breathe
yi han shi hui hu xi de tong
It loops along with my blood
ta liu zai xue ye zhong lai hui gun dong
It's painful when I regret of not being intimate
hou hui bu tie xin hui tong
It's painful when I regret of not being understanding
hen bu dong ni hui tong
It pains the most when I want to see you
xiang jian bu neng jian zui tong
(Translated by *--NK--*)
I have never seen you with sorrowness on your face
mei kan ni lian shang, zhang yang guo ai shang
That must be a lonely stubbornness
na shi zhong duo me, ji mo de jue jiang
(or, That was such a lonely stubbornness)
You removed your wall and let me roam around
ni chai le cheng qiang, rang wo qu liu lang
(Wall means keeping me around, removing the wall means letting me go)
Waiting for me and tie yourself at the origin
zai yuan di deng wo, ba zi ji kun bang
You didn't say that you were weak (emotionally)
ni mei shuo, ni ye hui ruan ruo
and you needed me
xu ya yi lai wo
I then pretended that I didn't know it
wo jiu zhuang bu xiao de
Wandered around and spent days on my own
zi you yi dong, zi wo de guo
I swear that I won't lie again,
wo fa shi bu zai shuo huang le
I would hold you as tight as how much I love you
duo ai ni jiu hui bao ni duo jin de
I fake to smile since then
wo de wei xiao dou jia le
as if my soul is floating around. I am so hoping that you are still here
ling hun xiang piao fu zhe, ni zai jiu hao le
I swear that I won't make you wait any longer
wo fa shi bu rang ni deng hou
I would be with you and do whatever you want to do
pei ni zuo xiang zuo de wu lun shen me
I become more and more like a sea shell
wo yue lai yue xiang bei ke
I am afraid of my heart to be touched by others, and hope that you are still here
pa xin bei ren chu peng, ni hui lai na jiu hao le
I am so hoping that we would start over
neng zhong lai na jiu hao le

A Breathing Pain
At Tokyo Tower, first time make a wish,
Watching the light impersonating a falling starlight.
I finally reach my destination but I feel more depressed,
Alone fulfilling our dreams.
You always say there is a lot of time,
You can wait for me.
I didn’t understand last time,
That it isn’t a must to have a future for tomorrow.
Missing is a breathing pain,
It lives in my body every corner.
Humming the song you love will pain, reading your letters will pain,
Even when I remain silent will pain.
Remorse is a breathing pain,
It remained running in my blood, struggling.
Regret of not caring enough will pain, hate of not understanding you will pain,
Want to meet but can’t meet is the most painful.
I never saw your face displayed hurt,
That is very, a loneliness strength.
You undid the chain, let me wander away,
Waiting for me on that very spot, locking up yourself.
You never said, you would crumble too,
That you needed to lean on me.
Therefore, I pretended not to notice,
Doing my own things, lived selfishly.
I swear I won’t tell lies anymore,
How much I love you will hug you how tight.
My smile became fake,
My soul feels like floating,
I hope you’re here.
I swear I won’t let you wait,
Accompany you to do whatever you want no matter what.
I’m becoming more and more like a shell,
Scared that my heart will be hurt.
How I wish if you’re back.
How I wished I could turn back time
