“Agape” (爱的独白) is the first solo single for Zhang Liyin after a five-year hiatus. The song is co-written by Liyin and Taiwanese lyricist Tina Wang. It is based on a real life story of a young child who survived the devastating Sichuan earthquake back in 2008 because he was protected by his mother’s arms.

The music video follows a similar story. Starring f(x) member Victoria Song, EXO member Tao, and actor Song Jaerim, the music video depicts the love between a mother and son throughout the son’s troubled life.

Thank you to amerscha for the translations!


English

Looking at love as it accumulates bit by bit into an ocean
Looking at the ocean as it flows day by day towards the future
I’ll be here to tell you good morning every day
I’ll also be here to light up love at night
I never left, Oh love
No matter how many obstacles and helpless moments that are experienced
Do not be afraid of the wait that was lost
Kissing my love

Remember unconditional love
Once you cross the distance you will see real love
Happiness is in my embrace and your dependence on me

Breathing is closing my eyes, feeling the helplessness that stays motionless
After you wake up from dreaming, remember that I’m holding you in my arms
Accompanying you with the warmth of love

I never left, Oh love
No matter how many obstacles and helpless moments that are experienced
Do not be afraid of the wait that was lost
Kissing my love

Remember unconditional love
Once you cross the distance you will see real love
Oh the shattered pain (*reference to earthquake) will not bury love

Once we meet again
Forever love
I never left, Oh love
No matter how many obstacles and helpless moments that are experienced

Do not be afraid of the wait that was lost
Kissing my love
Remember unconditional love
Once you cross the distance you will see real love
To make you believe that in the future we will be together
Never to be separated

Kissing my love

Remember unconditional love

I love you forever, I will not leave you
