To the Cloud of Wushan

把一百年 用理智割成两半 一半用于嘲笑月光的意义 一半用于心疼月光的短暂 黑夜只是挤出一条狰狞的笑 吐出混沌的狼烟 让星图变得捉摸不定 那闪亮的白牙也消失不见 一直陷进黑夜的黑 像雪盲于白天的白 不分究竟,只为心撕裂 在对你的迷恋


To cut a hundred years Into two parts with reason One part mocking at the meaning of the moonlight The other bleeding for the transience of the moonlight But the night just squeezes a grim smile And throws up a fog blurring the sight Then the star map is made unfathomable Gone too is the white tooth that once shone bright All the way into the darkness of the dark night Is like turning snow-blind in the white of daylight I cannot tell, as my heart is already torn For my obsession with you tonight
