Hoping to live quiet and peaceful years
手摇自在折扇

as I wave my folding fan relaxedly
生来最记当时温柔闲谈

The most memorable thing in my life is your gentleness back then and the chats we had shared

The broken jade and sunken pearl[1] from the past

Not understanding what had happened, I’m foolishly entangled in my dreams

Chorus 2:
便放手 与天下 相鏖战
biàn fàng shǒu yǔ tiān xià xiāng áo zhàn
So I let go and engage in a fierce battle with the world
剖白肝胆 海水不及情深半
pōu bái gān dǎn hǎi shuǐ bù jí qíng shēn bàn
Laying down my sincerity, the sea cannot even compare to half of my deep affections for you
自知一身 回头无岸

I know that I’m all alone with no way back
但求一心 生死无憾

I only wish for a life and death of no regrets

Verse 3:
浪迹江湖多孤单
làng jì jiāng hú duō gū dān
It’s so lonely to wander from place to place
不系行舟去复返
bù xì xíng zhōu qù fù fǎn
like an unmoored boat that comes and goes
纵为天地离叛
zòng wéi tiān dì lí pàn
Even if the world deserts me
终怀萤火微暖
zhōng huái yíng huǒ wēi nuǎn
and I’m left with only fireflies for warmth
过往丝缕红尘怎么斩断
guò wǎng sī lǚ hóng chén zěn me zhǎn duàn
How can I cut off my affections with the mortal world

(Chorus 1)
(Chorus 2) x2

但求一心 生死无憾
dàn qiú yī xīn shēng sǐ wú hàn
I only wish for a life and death of no regrets


[1] 玉碎珠沉 – It’s an idiom that can be used to describe the death of a beauty. Decided to translate it literally because “jade” can also refer to the jade pendant that Luo Bing He’s adoptive mother gave him. His jade didn’t exactly ‘break’ but for 8 years (I guess? – LBH’s 3 years + SQQ’s 5 years) he had thought that it was gone. Or it could also be referring to a literal death like maybe…SQQ’s? Cuz who else could the beauty be? 😂
[2] Refers to the Sect that SQQ & LBH belong to, Cang Qiong Mountain Sect.
[3] Let me elaborate on this ‘Chun Shan’ (春山). For those that haven’t read the novel (Scum Villain Self Saving System / 人渣反派自救系统), “Resentment of Chun Shan/春山恨/Chun Shan Hen” is a story within the novel that a character had written shipping Shen Qing Qiu x Luo Bing He.
[4] 风月 can also mean ‘beautiful scenery’ but I feel like “this beautiful scenery is just an illusion” doesn’t fit in as well, especially considering that the line before mentions Chun Shan Hen.


I decided to do both the short and full version because I was almost done with the short version when I discovered the existence of the full version. (there really wasn’t a full version when I started on the short version)
Song-wise, I actually prefer the short version because there’s many parts in the full version where I feel that the lyrics don’t really mesh well with the melody.
BUT there’s many lines in the full version that hits me hard, right in my kokoro, and I refuse to suffer alone so here. You’re welcome. Heheheh.
