Faye Wong & Na Ying – Years

I’m not crying, you are.

Did you get to see Faye Wong and Na Ying’s CCTV Spring Festival Gala collaboration? It’s been 20 years since it happened, and this year’s Years (岁月) was probably the most popular segment [like Tang Weiwei’s two years ago]. I do wonder why CCTV hasn’t uploaded the performance on its own (yet).

As far as I know, it’s only available for high quality download on QQ (though, geoblocked), unless… you know, you do your thing.

And now, someone was awesome enough to provide English translations~

Bless them~

Years (岁月)

A thousand miles in a moment,
A thousand words in a look.
Life is a complicated script,
But it cannot change our simplicity.

No matter how much smoke and dust,
The heart is always in search of peace.
No matter how long is our journey,
Tears are not always necessary,
Only the feelings are pure and true.

I have a lamp glowing for you,
Your state of mind is never near the dusk.
There will be no dusk in my heart,
with you I always feel like early spring morning.

Clouds are light,
The wind is gentle,
Let the stars
Rise and fall.

Life is a complicated script,
But it cannot change our simplicity.
No matter how long is our journey,
Tears are not always necessary,
Only the feelings are pure and true.

I have a lamp glowing for you,
As you let me see through everything in the world.
You are the lamp in my heart,
Let me calm down to see the noisy world outside.

Listen to the years passing by like the eternal melody,
Accompaning constant meeting and departing in the journey.
There is an open door in my heart,
Always waiting for the return of youth.

Clouds are light,
The wind is gentle,
Let the stars
Rise and fall.


Definitely candidate for favorite song this 2018.
