I love her voice, and I really enjoy the song
Walking in the big city, passing small days
Only afraid of having more matters (but) not feelings
Only afraid of always being suspicious, I'm walking at some time I've lost track of
Yet you're somewhere (I don't know)

What distance should I count, what luck should I rely on,
You and me, between us, is there a distance of a step or a thousand Li*?
What kind of beginning will we have, is there no logic to it?
Is there a between us, don't forget
Someone walked seven steps to compose his poem**
(I) wish that in one step I'll be someone who has you
Spring flowers accompany me here
Waiting alone is more beautiful
Where is the harvest moon?
(I'm) waiting alone to love you

Looking for (him/her) in the chaos and masses of people***
Ten thousand li later, there's no story
(But) if I can find you under the dim light of the lanterns***
(Then I could) compose a poem in one step

Passing these small days by, thinking of these big myths
Only afraid of having more matters (but) not feelings
Only afraid of always being suspicious, I'm walking at some time I've lost track of
Yet you're somewhere (I don't know)

From dawn to dusk, tossing and turning
How many words have been written to describe this kind of happiness
There's a golden hour when we'll meet which will allow our affection to hold until the end of time****
Maybe if I walk one step more, the mountains and the rivers will play games.
Another step, and the heavens and earth are conspiring to write a legend
Another step, look, (I've) become (the subject of) poetry
All for you.

NOTES:
*li is a traditional Chinese unit of distance. 1 li = 500m
** Referencing an idiomatic expression, qi bu cheng shi, the story of Cao Cao's son, Cao Zhi, being forced to compose a poem within seven steps.
*** Referencing a line from a Song Dynasty poem, Xin Qiji's Lyrics to the Melody of Green Jadeite Bowl (On the Original Chinese Valentine's Day/the Lantern Festival).
**** Referencing a line from a Song Dynasty poem, Qin Guan's Fairy of the Magpie Bridge, which in turn references current Chinese Valentine's Day Qi Xi's origin story, the story of the cowherd and the weaver girl.
I enjoyed this one.

Anyway, I wasn't saying don't request anything, just to be moderate. She might have ended up translating them all until she got to the bottom message or something... alright... the purge has started...

Also Dear Tree Hole or You Won't Be
A Brand New Me, After That, The Innocent woman, Can't wait, Repair Me, Dear Tree Hole...

Basically SHERO and Blossomy

AINY :palove:
Ayy Abra of course
But I love rainy night flower is a dialect song, here's a link. http://bananaxmushroom.blogspot.com/2010/03/she-shero-wo-ai-yu-ye-hua.html

When I'm talking about the future, you take the chance
to stare at the monitor blankly, changing channels busily.
When I catch a cold and have a stuffy nose, you take the chance to
blame me for wearing a short skirt, questioning why it ended before the knees.

Can't take it when I call an idol handsome (too weird)
Yet you like it when I act cute (so unbearable, can't understand it)
You don't listen to my words seriously, can't understand that every month
my mood will change for the worse cyclically.

Why don't you be a girl for a day
Experience for yourself why I laugh
The reason behind every teardrop
Love everything I love, understand my sorrow and pain

Let's have a fairly balanced love life
If you were a girl

You be the girl girl girl girl girl girl girl You be the girl girl

Come watch the channels I choose
Have a conversation with me so I can rely on you and love my friends too
Come, pretend you're living my life
Repeat my breaths and heartbeats, understand my needs

Expecting me to be gentle, open-minded and loving (too weird)
Yet expecting me to overlook my boyfriend's unreasonable behaviour (too unbearable, can't understand it)
My dear, please don't keep yourself out of it
Can you not take this chance right now to pretend you're a girl

Why don't you be a girl for a day
Experience for yourself why I laugh
The reason behind every teardrop
Love everything I love, understand my sorrow and pain

Let's have a fairly balanced love life
If you were a girl

If I were you, I'd take notice of how every girl
is a work of art that deserves to be held on the palms

If I were you, I'd be more attentive
won't be stingy with saying I love yous every day

Why don't you be a girl for a day
Experience for yourself why I laugh
The reason behind every teardrop
Love everything I love, understand my sorrow and pain

Let's have a fairly balanced love life
If you were a girl



I have a faint memory of an endless summer
How many nights did I spend sitting, watching shooting stars leave their friends?
We would frequently take the time to stroll under the trees while having a talk
And sometimes the swallows would also join in on our conversations

Look at that road, the tree that was once there is now gone
That version of me has grown up, that memory has disappeared
This world has improved, but why has that wonderful time been forgotten?
Everything that happened under the trees, it was all part of my beautiful childhood

Regret in my eyes, staring at this kind of change
Everything that was embraced under the trees, it was all part of your beautiful past
Remember the smiles on our faces from that time, treasure that memory and let it motivate us.
The natural scents from the past have been replaced with a steel and concrete street
Nature has turned into merchandise for anybody to pick and choose
The coastline where the waves beat against the shore has turned into luxurious palaces

Forgetting that the skies are meant to be the eaves that protect you
Listen to the beating heart of that piece of land, the sighing of that tree
That you has matured, that memory is calling out to you
What this world has abandoned, let me always remember that beauty

Can we first cultivate before we think about the harvest?
Can we think back to the dream we've lost?
We cannot chop away our memories and later say we'll do it over again
Everything embraced under that tree was all part of my beautiful yesterdays

With the future in my eyes, we can change this world
Everything under the trees contains your beautiful tomorrow
Remember the smiles on our faces from that time, treasure that memory and let it motivate us.

wow, thanks!
Wanna clarify this line:
"Only afraid of having more matters (but) not feelings"
If you put the characters for "feelings" and "matters" together the meaning is "matters of the heart" so this worked way better in Chinese.
If you wanna thank me you can listen to this song :peepopbirthday: :

Oh~ Hey boys don't lie
Oh~ Hey girls don't cry

If I may ask, what were you doing yesterday at 6pm
(Such that you)couldn't pick up my call
Oh, so you were working late into the night, since you were so pitiful, do you want me to dote on you a little
Don't make up these immature lies, do you believe me to be a three-year old baby
Peter, who's easy to overlook, he told me that you had
Actually gone out with Angela

Oh~ Hey boys don't lie
Oh~ Hey girls don't cry

What kind of trick are you trying now, how old is she,
what kind of special ability does she have
It's the same as Susan from last time, so ordinary, what kind of taste do you have
Open your eyes and see, I'm beautiful, capable, I only lack cooking skills
And if you were to give me the cold shoulder, that'd be too ugly, isn't your every meal paid for by me?

Who's afraid of your Mary Judy or Rose
come on come on come on come on oh
I can casually get close to any number
Let's see in the end, who will feel worse than who than who than who

Oh~ Hey boys don't lie
Oh~ Hey girls don't cry

Please don't make me listen to your stammers pleading me to listen to your nonsensical lies at two, three AM
Is there any use in wasting your saliva
Once you think it's in the past, isn't your revolting behaviour going to be the exact same
Unreasonable like a girl
Why don't I just send you a Barbie doll on your birthday
Don't read out your script too well
Wake up, you're just not Shakespeare

I also have Max and Ken so and so
Come on Come on Come on Come on OH!
Why don't I also get this close
Let's see in the end, who will feel worse than who than who than who

Hey Boys don't lie
Hey Girls don't cry

The entirety of The Untamed OST. Specifically Bu Wang (the Lan Wangji theme song); Song Ends With Chenqing (Wei Wuxian theme), the Lan Xichen theme song and the Wen Ning theme song
Also, these:

If I had to pick, do either Song Ends with Chenqing or the last embed ^
I'll be honest. I saw those original posts you'd posted including the interview translation request, I just decided not to reply until I was free. On review I have decided not to work on translating these for the following reasons:
  1. I didn't like the way you asked, I felt like you were quite entitled in requesting a whole album soundtrack and interview without even checking for cc subs, or other existing subs. The language you used made me feel that way.

    I also didn't like the way you responded to softest_bun and then modded away your initial response, which I had happened to see.

  2. I'm not a fan of the songs.

  3. I'm not a fan of any of the singers, or Wang Yibo, or Xiao Zhan, or The Untamed.

  4. I glanced through existing subs. It's fair to say I can probably do a better job of making these songs understandable for non-Chinese-speaking listeners since they do make quite a few cultural references throughout these songs. It's the norm for this kind of OST.

    However, I just don't feel inclined to do so when the existing subs are pretty good for understanding the gist of the song and you haven't made me feel even slightly motivated to go the extra mile.

Oh:whaaat: for some reason I thought you were more fluent in Chinese than I am

Also omg it’s really an Oppo Reno song

(I) wanna put myself into the fridge
Stay in for a day without anyone getting in the way
I’ll help you tenfold tenfold
Tenfold tenfold, feel the coolness
It’s this moment right now,
it’s time for us to use a special move
Let every tenfold OPPO Reno
Go crazy for you
Tenfold coca-cola will please you
Tenfold oceans waves let you relax
Tenfold air-conditioning, tenfold cool
Tenfold ice cubes to go crazy

This temperature keeps going up, it’s driving me crazy
Sweat keeps flowing down my fats
I don’t want to keep sitting on this sofa anymore
Let me tell you Something.

It’s this moment right now,
It’s time for us to use a special move
I wanna put myself into the fridge
I wanna put myself into the fridge
Stay in for a day without anyone getting in the way

I’ll help you tenfold tenfold
Tenfold tenfold, feel the coolness
It’s this moment right now,
it’s time for us to use a special move
Let every tenfold OPPO Reno
Go crazy for you
Tenfold coca-cola will please you
Tenfold oceans waves let you relax
Tenfold air-conditioning, tenfold cool
Tenfold ice cubes to go crazy

It’s too noisy, just like a wet market
It’s starting to feel too stuffy
Let me tell you something.

It’s this moment right now,
It’s time for us to use a special move
I wanna put myself into the fridge

I don’t get it either. I don’t use OPPO.
