Too many worries

The same makeup, the same hair

Everyone's always too similar, how boring

Why not think for yourself instead of cutting out stuff from magazines

Why not make a scene yourself instead of imitating others

Everyone always has something they're better at than others

If you aren't that pretty, put more effort into making yourself up

When you can't even think about your figure it's so bad,

Make an effort to smile with brilliance

*It isn't good if my worries are too passive

It's not good either if they're too impulsive

Worries, my confidence is wavering

Worries, worries, I've gotten too extreme

**Too many worries, it isn't good if they're too clever

It's worse if my worries are too stupid

My worries, nobody understands

Worries, worries, the troubles of being too worried

Don't let yesterday fence you in, let today be your wings

It's ok to fail in love, but don't lose your desire for happiness

Better to take an umbrella if you're going to secretly love someone, there'll be rain and snow

Love is like a high heeled shoe, the more beautiful the easier it is to trip

Getting hurt is unavoidable, what's important is to not let it scar

If there's no shadow, don't be scared

For your dreams, take the pain as you mature

repeat *

Take me away

lyrics: qing feng

music: qing feng

Every time, I always walk alone

At the intersection, living by myself

But this time you say you'll take me away

To some corner, just you and me

*Like the earth holding on tightly to the flower's mystery

Like the sky lingering in the torrential rain

I follow you

Counting the steps, every background, every scene

Is a place where dreams have occurred

#Take me away

To a faraway future

Take away

My revolving loneliness

Take me away

Even if my love and your freedom will fade into foam

I'm not afraid, take me away

Every time, I always walk far away by myself

Maintaining my silence, without frowning

But this time you say, let's go together

With tenderness towards each other, from now on

repeat *

repeat #

The white horse walks past the end of darkness

The tides assail us, the waves tremble

Condensing on the seashore into ink

The roses face the balloons of the prairie

The mailman delivers a rainbow

Engraved in our hearts, beating with our pulses

repeat #

Take me away

Even if my love and your freedom will fade into foam

Take me away

My love IV drip

lyrics: lin wei cheng

music: Gustav Jonsson, Tommy Tysper, Marcus Sepehrmanesh

That scenery on the postcard, anyone who’s actually been there sighs

Looking at the stars in the sky, actually they've long since frozen over

Paris, a rain of apricot blossoms, love in a foreign country

Many memories are buried in Norway's forests

Actually Norway's forests are cold enough to make you sneeze

*My love IV drip, I'm so sadly

Those strange encounters in fairytales don't exist here

Where's Prince Charming?

I guess he must only exist in stories

That scenery on the postcard, anyone who’s actually been there sighs

Looking at the stars in the sky, actually they've long since frozen over

Paris, a rain of apricot blossoms, love in a foreign country

How sweet the polar bears' love is

Actually the polar bears' love is cold enough to make you sneeze

repeat *

#Life doesn't have that happiness woven into fairytales

Loneliness counts down the steps to the dance of heartbreak

Life doesn't have that happiness woven into fairytales

Loneliness counts down the steps to the dance of heartbreak

repeat *

Cold war

lyrics: Wonderful

music: wei jing yun

You treat me like a piece of plaster, never arguing with me anymore

Is this some kind of warning?

Pretending like we can't see each other, no longer of any importance

I won't fight with you anymore

*Silence is a type of poison, or more like a knife

Cutting apart our embrace

We need to think about how much love is really left

Promises evaporate along with our love

I don't want to play the supporting role anymore, wavering in the silence

I want to escape

#I hear your heartbeat in this cold war

A sign of both sides suffering losses, we can't evade it

I know any kind of asking for forgiveness

Won't be the antidote, so why not give up everything and leave

##Facing this cold air, these cold walls, so cold I feel dazed

So cold that I'm close to suffocating

How long will this cold war continue until it subsides and lets me leave

repeat *

I don't want to play the supporting role anymore, wavering in the silence

I want to escape

repeat #

repeat ##

repeat #

Facing this cold air, these cold walls, so cold I feel dazed

So cold that I'm close to suffocating

Just let these memories stop and let me revel in breathing

Mars

The love you want

Is your own self-righteous love, it’s just an idea

I’ve been appointed my role

The two of us aren’t like an online game, where the controller’s in your hands

There’s a bit of sweetness, but more of it’s powerless

You’re full of a childish air yet you still accuse me of being unreasonable

There’ll be a little pity, but more of it’s resolve

In love you might be wronged a little, oh, but you can’t not be yourself

You want me to be like Mercury*, orbiting around you

Relying on you with tenderness

But I’m like Mars, everything’s clear cut

I have my own life

repeat above

Don’t take me for Mercury, don’t tell me to silently prove

How close we are

I’m like Mars, with a complex terrain

And mysteries that need to be explored

*note: in Chinese Mercury is the water planet while Mars is the fire planet

Not yet a woman (lit: half-mature declaration)

lyrics: chen zhen chuan

music: Gary Mill, Nick Willams, Jakob Skarin

The process doesn’t need directing, no celebratory fireworks have appeared

Like they’ve rehearsed before, the ceremony of adults starts to perform

Like a cartoon, starting to slowly change in one night

*My sky starts to change, I want to stubbornly save some of it

How will my face change, I can’t make faces much anymore

My indifference is changing, I have two words

I read out my declaration of being not yet mature

la la la...

I read out my declaration of being not yet mature

I seal up those innocent letters and start to collect high heels

Filing away that photograph of yesterday, I know fairytales won’t come true

I should hide away my cuteness, just think of it as a keepsake

repeat *

That boy, that face, suddenly they don’t seem so good-looking

Those cards I secretly made, I’ll secretly hide them in my heart

Turns out the disappearance of my dreams could cure my insomnia

repeat *

If you love me please shut up

lyrics: zheng shu fei

music: hong xin jie

So sorry, I’ve made plans with my friend to walk the dog

I’ve got no time to laze around with you

You should go home and get back to work, when I’m free then we’ll talk

You blabber over and over, I’ve had enough

*Now I have to step on the brake and stop this fire

I’m not helpless without you

I’ll give you three minutes to get out of my live

Don’t keep clinging, reluctant to leave

**Dear, we’ve loved each other for so long

Why don’t you understand what I’m rebelling against

Are we putting out the fire or fanning its flames?

All those sweet words can’t do anything

*Oh oh oh oh

If you love me please shut up, shut up baby

Oh oh oh oh

Would you mind shutting up, unless you want to break up

You should go home and get back to work, when I’m free let’s talk

You blabber over and over, I’ve had enough

repeat *

repeat **

repeat #

When I don’t want to hear any beautiful excuses

Use your actions to prove you love me

repeat **

repeat #

Oh oh oh oh

If you love me please shut up, shut up baby

Oh oh oh oh

Thank you for shutting up, and sparing my ears

Smiling in your embrace

lyrics: zheng shu fei

music: jj lin

Is it ok? for you and me to swap roles

I hope you can love me then, love me until you almost go crazy

Do you know? how important you are to me

It’s just that right now isn’t the best time for us to embrace

Love floats in the wind, drifting past you

Drifting finally to the ends of the earth

Trapping me in this castle with no place to escape to

I don’t want someone else’s gentle embrace

When I can’t hear your heartbeat

And I can’t even smell those familiar smells

I just want you to call after me one more time

Those intimate signals of the past

I want to hear them with my own ears just once more

repeat above

I don’t want someone else’s gentle embrace

To rely on for now

That’s just a temporary painkiller, it’ll wear off quickly

I just want you to cheer me up one more time

Letting me feel so proud

Letting me remember the good things I once had

And me smiling in your embrace

Among girls I’m the best

Who stays up with me all night insulting that heartless man who doesn’t love me

Who goes on diets with me, only eating boiled eggs

Who can talk with me about this and that, talking my worries away

Who can go around with me in the moonlight, hearts aflurry

*They’ve got their bros, we’ve got our sisters

Girls have to be stronger and more independent

They love to be ridiculous, we love to be beautiful

There’s some things I can only say to my group of girls

#How can I not love you baby

How can I not stick up for you baby

It’s for girls only

Of all girls, I’m the greatest, don’t doubt it

##How can I not love you baby

How can I not stick up for you baby

It’s for girls only

We aren’t the type who looks just at appearances

I won’t let you cover your face with tears (crying over love, such a fool)

Believe me, you can (become independent through your own beauty)

You can dream about this and that as much as you want

I’ll always be clapping for you

repeat *

repeat #

repeat ##

**Girls aren’t docile, girls don’t cry

Girls don’t give up on flying so easily

Girls, we have to go forward hand in hand

Girls, we want happiness, let’s promise each other

repeat *

The rhythm of happiness

lyrics: wu yi wei

music: chen wei quan

I try my best to bravely love, the rhythm of happiness

One person can’t run too fast, but with two it’s so exciting

Searching for love on a map,

I always thought Paris was romantic and New York was magnificent

Until you came,

Bringing so many wonders into my life

*I’ve been hurt before too, not even hoping for the flowers would bloom again

But you said to believe in love, falling down isn’t failing

You turned out to be an unexpected wonder

#I try my best to bravely love, the rhythm of happiness

One person can’t run too fast, but with two it’s exciting

Loving bravely, happiness becomes simpler

I’m hiding in your embrace

I’ll overcome my sadness

Make a change to my faded heart, and brush off the dust

I say goodbye to loneliness

With him here, my days of waiting are over, I won’t give up again

repeat *

repeat #

Sometimes happiness reacts slowly, half a beat late

But that doesn’t mean it isn’t paying attention

I raise my head, looking at that gentle sunlight that’s always there

Drying my tears away

I try my best to bravely love, the rhythm of happiness

One person can’t run too fast, but with two it’s exciting

Loving bravely, happiness becomes simpler

I like to rely on you, hiding in your embrace

I try my best to bravely love, the rhythm of happiness

If I like causing trouble, I can just worm my way out of it

Loving bravely, happiness will be there

Keep on going and you’ll definitely find true love in the end
