Just so that I could see you once
等待微暖抚过
děng dài wēi nuǎn fǔ guò
Waiting for a slight warmth to whisk past
让它融了
ràng tā róng liǎo
and melt it
遇见是注定的殇

Our encounter was destined (to end in) heartbreak[1]
想念是无语的眼光

We’ve become interdependent but our future is bleak

Willingly wiping away your blood and injuries
无怨过黯夜的漫长
wú yuàn guò àn yè de màn cháng
Passing endless dark nights with no complains
在你身旁深深的埋藏
zài nǐ shēn páng shēn shēn de mái cáng
Beside you, deeply buried in the earth


[1] 殇 shāng – Means to die young or to die in war. Basically, to die. I interpreted it as the death of the relationship = Heartbreak
[2] 灰墙 huī qiáng – Can mean a few things: 1) Plaster wall 2) Grey wall 3) Wall of ash (?!)
After hours of thought, I decided on ‘plaster wall’ because (maybe) this line is describing gentleness as the first step in a relationship, like how plastering the wall is the first step before you paint the desired colour on top. OR it could also (maybe) be describing gentleness as the approach to fixing any problems in a relationship, like plastering the wall to fill in any cracks in the walls. Idk. Anyone has any other ideas?
[3] More towards the alarmed/anxious kind of ‘mess’
[4] Seeing how the song ends, this can also be taken to mean that he’s dying.
