TMOPB Film Theme Song Translation

Some one asked me if I could translate the lyrics, so here it is, you can also watch a youtube video with the subtitle on. Yes, I'm that nice~

Listen to it here

One note though is that in Chinese a song lyric/poem can often take on no clear subject as the speaker/narrator of the song/poem. So you don't have "I" or "me" or "you“ in the lyrics at all. This is unthinkable in English. Therefore in this translation I'm not using any specific pronouns as that would really ruin the Chinese feel. 

 

       花开三世 酒酿成了微甜

Flowers blossom for three life times as the wine matures to a gentle sweetness

  人在梦外之梦 血化成了青藤

Standing in a dream outside a dream, blood turns into vines

  夜灯扶摇升上空 离人还在等

Lanterns float up into the sky, someone is still waiting

  不舍得不再遇见 有情的人原来不敢相逢

Can't bear thinking never see one another again,  yet those who love are afraid to meet

  桃花朵朵 只恨瞬间花落

Peach blossoms one by one, how sad they wither so fast

  八荒相隔 四海再无歌

With 8 Huang (massive land area)'s separation, no more songs across the 4 seas

  看死生契阔 有传说

In this life and death promise, as legend has it

  词句写在你眼底

Every word is written in your eyes

  你只有我

Says you have only me

  时间苦多 只待一语道破

Too much time has gone by, only waiting for one line to reveal it all

  若情可得 穷尽了三生三世 寻相似轮廓

If this love can be had, spending three life times searching for that familiar face

  分分合合 不错过

It might be back and forth but shall never miss

  忘情三生 遗憾也算有幸

Love like this for three life times, regrets are also blessings

  昆仑雪化成风 泪变千年玄冰

Snow of Kunlun turns into wind, tears turn into ice of thousands of years

  氤氲泉此刻无声 故人还在等

The misty spring is silent in this moment, someone is still waiting

  不舍得不再相欠 有情的人原来不敢相逢

Can't bear thinking never see one another again,  yet those who love are afraid to meet

  桃花朵朵 只恨瞬间花落

Peach blossoms one by one, how sad they wither so fast

    八荒相隔 四海再无歌

With 8 Huang (massive land area)'s separation, no more songs across the 4 seas

  看死生契阔 有传说

In this life and death promise, as legend has it

  词句写在你眼底

Every word is written in your eyes

  你只有我

Says you have only me

  时间苦多 只待一语道破

Too much time has gone by, only waiting for one line to reveal it all

  若情可得 穷尽了三生三世 寻相似轮廓

If this love can be had, spending three life times searching for that familiar face

  生生世世 缘无因 爱有果

Every lifetime and every world, encounters happen for no reason, yet love comes to fruition
