Many thanks to dreaded_destiny_ for translating the lyrics!


English

For me who had already lost my memories
Love is an extravagant form of loneliness
My shaking hands, the warmth that can’t be caught
My heart had already fell to pieces

(I don’t know) Why you left
(I don’t know) Your love
(I don’t know) Will never return

Love has no excuses
There as a time in this world where you were the sole beauty
The grey sky; the end of memory lane
Ever since I lost you
My heart finally knew how much it hurt

For me whose heart had already beat
Is shrinking into the distant background
My breath is dying down, tears are mocking my foolishness
My heart has no energy left to turn back

(I don’t know) Why you left
(I don’t know) Your love
(I don’t know) Will never return

Love has no excuses
There as a time in this world where you were the sole beauty
The grey sky; the end of memory lane
Ever since I lost you
My heart finally knew how much it hurt

(I don’t know) You said you’d leave
No no no no (I don’t know)

The lonely melody; the suffocating air
A lost love is the only reality
Who is willing to hear me out?
My heart breaking cries, my longings till the end
It was then did I know only pain was left

This world…
You’ve left already

After I left you


Simplified Chinese

已经失去记忆的我
爱情是奢侈的寂寞
颤抖的双手抓不的体温
心早是一地零落

(I don’t know) 你为何走
(I don’t know) 你的爱
(I don’t know) 已不再回首

爱没有借口
曾经这世界 美丽的 只有你
灰色的天空 回忆的尽头
失去你以后
心才懂有多痛

已经停止心跳的我
远离的背景里消瘦
呼吸在凋零 泪水我的痴狂
心早就无力回首
(I don’t know) 你为何走
(I don’t know) 你的爱
(I don’t know) 已不再回首

爱没有借口
曾经这世界 美丽的 只有你
灰色的天空 回忆的尽头
失去你以后
心才懂有多痛

I don’t know 你说你走
No no no no I don’t know

孤单的旋律 窒息空气
失去的爱才是唯一的现在
请肯倾听我
心碎的哭泣 思念到最后
才知道 只有痛

这世界
你已经离开

离开你以后


Traditional Chinese

已經失去記憶的我
愛情是奢侈的寂寞
顫抖雙手抓不得体溫
心早是一地零落

(I don’t know) 你爲何走
(I don’t know) 你的愛
(I don’t know) 已不再回首

愛沒有藉口
曾經著世界 美麗的 只有你
灰色的天空回憶的勁首
失去你以後
心才懂有多痛

已經停止心跳得我
遠離的背景消瘦
呼吸在凋零令淚水笑我的癡狂
心早就無力回頭
(I don’t know) 你爲何走
(I don’t know) 你的愛
(I don’t know) 已不再回首

愛沒有藉口
曾經著世界美麗的只有你
灰色的天空回憶的勁頭
失去你以後
心才懂有多痛

(I don’t know) 你說你走
No no no no (I don’t know)

孤單的旋律窒息的空氣
失去的愛才是唯一的現在
誰肯傾聼我
心碎的哭泣思念到最後
才知道只有痛

知世界
你已經離開

離開你以後
