Hmm, I guess all of you may have guessed, I do not watch drama serials very often, and this is no exception

But it seems to be that the Singapore radio stations are playing this song again and again, and I started to be curious with what Olivia is singing there..

After looking at the Lyrics, I think my translation is very bad, because the lyrics sound so classical and the words use are harder to understand, but nonetheless, I tried to interpret it too…. so please do not laugh at it.. I think this is tougher then the lyrics of 菊花台 which I have written long time ago.

Feel free to give comments, and lets review this, especially for readers whose command of chinese language is much better then mine.

Over here I would like to express my thanks to Ariel (I believe I did not get your name wrongly) for providing some pointers on how to edit.. But  I must first admit, I was never a very good chinese student 😉

如燕 (Like a swallow)
詞曲: 陳佳明
編曲: Terence Teo
演唱: Olivia Ong

愿意合上眼才能美梦无边    yuàn yì hé shàng yǎn cái néng měi mèng wú biān
别让悔熏乌了从前                 bié ràng huǐ xūn wū le cóng qián

也许碎片才能让回忆展颜    yě xǔ suì piàn cái néng ràng huí yì zhǎn yán
何妨瓷花拼凑明天                 hé fáng cí huā pīn còu míng tiān

谁带我寻获幸福的模           shéi dài wǒ xún huò xìng fú de mó
却自己谜中困锁                    què zì jǐ mí zhōng kǔn suǒ

谁为我留下缱绻的天涯      shéi wéi wǒ liú xià qiǎn quǎn de tiān yá
信物是抹晚霞                       xìn wù shì mǒ wǎn xiá

Chorus:
思念如燕它飞舞舌尖          sī niàn rú yān tā fēi wǔ shé jiān
若是真爱配尝几分苦甜      ruò shì zhēn ài pèi cháng jī fēn kǔ tián

意念婆娑时间里推磨          yì niàn pó suō shí jiān lǐ tuī mó
追随到何处才结果              zhuī suí dào hé chǔ cái jié guǒ

燕如针线在青空缝编          yān rú zhēn xiàn zài qīng kōng féng biān
几幅女红将以泪缀点           jī fú nǚ hóng jiāng yǐ lèi cui diǎn

誓言斑驳情雾只是经过      shì yán bān bó qíng wù zhǐ shì jīng guò
风雨中且让我盈步婀娜      fēng yǔ zhōng qiě ràng wǒ yíng bù ē nuó
(Repeat once, then end with chorus)

Only if one is willing to close his eyes, will he have beautiful dreams
Do not allow regret to cloud the past

Perhaps memories can only be kept through the broken pieces of life
Only then can the future be pieced together

Who would lead me to find happiness, yet
allowing himself to be trapped in the process

Who left for me such deep attachment?
Using the bypassing sunset glow as a token of pledge.

Chorus
My Yearning are liken to the swallow as it dance at the tip of the tongue
Only true love is worthy of such a bittersweet taste

My thoughts are dancing, within the grinding of time
How long before a result appears?

The Swallow is sewing through the clear sky like a needle
After its completed, it will be decorated with tears of the lady

Your pledge is blurred while the fog is only passing
Allow me to pass through gracefully in the midst of this storm.
