“Not Alone” (我一个人) is one of the three singles Zhang Liyin released in 2014. Its music video follows the cast and story line from her single, “Agape”. The song is the Chinese version of a Korean song first sung by Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany, called “By Myself” (나 혼자서).

Many thanks to amerscha for the English translations.


English

Sorrowfully the expression in your eyes became unfamiliar
Beginning the period of many worries and my departure
Unable to determine each other’s journey
The barren roadsides accompanied your silhouette

How can one erase tears that have dried?
Immediately swallowing up the love that faded away
The oasis for one who seeks, exists at the end of a desert
Heartache and loneliness touches your gentleness

Burning love disperses and chases along the wind
Dust and sand similarly dance in the breeze
Calling out your footsteps
With an anxious heart, urging with effort
The distant bottom of your heart
Can it also feel

The overwhelming flow of longing that has melted into love under this sky

Lonely rain started fluttering through the sky
In the next reincarnation of this life’s happenings
Do not stop this spirited rain (these feelings)
Let them water my hopeful eyes

The precious flower strongly blossoms
Even if moving against this barrenness
My feelings for you are the only things that help me get by
To love for a lifetime, I do not hesitate to wait again

Burning love disperses and chases along the wind
Dust and sand similarly dance in the breeze
Calling out your footsteps
With an anxious heart, urging with effort
The distant bottom of your heart
Can it also feel

The overwhelming flow of longing that has melted into this sky

Scared of pain and scared of acting impulsively
These touching raindrops
Can they also fall to your heart’s bottom
To never separate again

Under a night sky by myself
Imagining sometimes I’m also powerless
To meet with you again
To hold you again


Simplified Chinese

悄然陌生了你的眼神
开启我离别多愁季节
猜测不定各自的行程
沿途荒漠陪伴着你身影

蒸发的泪如何涂抹
消逝中的爱即刻吞没
寻求生的绿洲在沙漠的尽头
心痛寂寞触见你的温柔

燃烧的爱随风吹散追逐
尘沙一样飞舞
呼唤着你的脚步
焦灼的心努力催促
遥远的你心底
是否也能感受

思念的浮涌熔化着时空的爱

天空飘荡起了冷清的雨
今生际遇里的再度人生
不要停掉这场心灵的雨
让它浇灌我那渴望双眼

坚强地绽放珍稀花朵
哪怕是舞动在这荒漠
用唯一的颜色风雨摇摆里渡过
为爱一生我不惜再等候

燃烧的爱随风吹散追逐
尘沙一样飞舞
呼唤着你的脚步
焦灼的心努力催促
遥远的你心底
是否也能感受

思念的浮涌熔化着时空

害怕痛还怕冲动
这动人雨滴是否也
掉落你心底
再不要分离

一个人的夜空
想像有时也无力
再一次相遇
再一次相拥和你
