Remembering the dream of Malaysia : Chrysanthemum Terrace

In Gerakan Harapan Baru on 22/10/2015 at 11:35

Lost and stucked in Malaysia, we Chinese pendatang had this song to remind ourselves during our years away from a broken nation.

Just thought of sharing this JayChou’s love song for a people with a few rakan-rakan Melayu who is facing a fading nation these days.

【 菊花台 】
词:方文山 曲:周杰伦

你的泪光 柔弱中带伤
Your tears, in weakness, brought forth sorrow
惨白的月弯弯 勾出过往
Pale Half moon brought forth old memories
夜太漫长 凝结成了霜
Night has been too long, causing dew to freeze
是谁在阁楼上冰冷地绝望
Who is still there in the Corridor of Power to contemplate despair
雨轻轻弹 朱红色的窗
Rain drops stroking the red window

我一生在纸上 被风吹乱
My whole life on a piece of paper blown by chaos
梦在远方 化成一缕香
Dreams from far away become just a distance fragrance
随风飘散你的模样
Blew away by the wind like your image from distance past
菊花残 满地殇 你的笑容已泛黄
Chrysanthemum withers, deaths found everywhere, your smile fades
花落人断肠 我心事静静淌
Flower falls, people withers; my heart silently weeps
北风乱 夜未央 你的影子剪不断
Northwind roars, night is still long; yet your shadow could not be cut
徒留我孤单 在湖面 成双
Being alone, I see only my shadow besides the pond/
