Lyrics:

你瘦了憔悴得让我好心疼
nǐ shòu le qiáo cuì dé ràng wǒ hǎo xīn téng
You’re so thin and so sick that I feel so bad

有时候爱情比时间还残忍
yǒu shí hou ài qíng bǐ shí jiān hái cán rěn
Sometimes love is more cruel than time

把人变得盲目而奋不顾身
bǎ rén biàn dé máng mù ér fèn bú gù shēn
For it makes people blind and reckless

忘了爱要两个同样用心的人
wàng le ài yào liǎng gè tóng yàng yòng xīn de rén
Forgetting the fact that love needs two people

你醉了脆弱得藏不住泪痕
nǐ zuì le cuì ruò dé cáng bú zhù lèi hén
You’re too drunk and weak to hide your tears

我知道绝望比冬天还寒冷
wǒ zhī dào jué wàng bǐ dōng tiān hái hán lěng
I know despair is colder than winter

你恨自己是个怕孤独的人
nǐ hèn zì jǐ shì gè pà gū dú de rén
You hate yourself for being afraid of loneliness

偏偏又爱上自由自私的灵魂
piān piān yòu ài shàng zì yóu zì sī de líng hún
But you fell in love with a selfish soul who loves freedom

你带着它唯一写过的情书
nǐ dài zhe tā wéi yī xiě guò de qíng shū
You keep the only love letter he wrote for you

想证明当初爱得并不糊涂
xiǎng zhèng míng dāng chū ài dé bìng bù hú tu
Trying to prove your love wasn’t foolish

他曾为了你的逃离颓废痛苦
tā céng wèi le nǐ de táo lí tuí fèi tòng kǔ
Once he sank into depression when you left

也为了破镜重圆抱着你哭
yě wèi le pò jìng chóng yuán bào zhe nǐ kū
And he cried when you finally came back

可惜爱不是几滴眼泪几封情书,哦~
ò kě xī ài bú shì jǐ dī yǎn lèi jǐ fēng qíng shū, ò ~
But love isn’t just a few drops of tears or a few love letters

这样的话也许有点残酷
zhè yàng de huà huò xǔ yóu diǎn cán kù
Maybe this is a little cruel to say

等待着别人给幸福的人
děng dāi zhe bié rén gěi xìng fú de rén
But who waits for someone else to bring him happiness

往往过的都不怎么幸福
wáng wǎng guò de dōu bù zěn me xìng fú
Is usually the one who will not be happy

可惜爱不是忍着眼泪留着情书,哦~
ò kě xī ài bú shì rěn zhuó yǎn lèi, liú zhe qíng shū, ò ~
But love isn’t just about holding back tears and treasuring love letters

伤口清醒要比昏迷痛楚
shāng kǒu qīng xǐng yào bǐ hūn mí tòng chǔ
An awakened wound hurts more than a sleeping one

禁闭着双眼又拖着错误
jǐn bì zhe shuāng yǎn yòu tuō zhe cuò wù
Closing both eyes and holding on to your mistakes

真爱来临时你要怎么留得住
zhēn ài lái lín shí nǐ yào zěn me liú dé zhù
How will you recognize true love when it comes ?
