If wishes do really come true, can love be forever?

Back when I was having a love affair with Asian dramas, I thought this song was the most wistful I’d ever heard. (I was a teenager, y’all). But I still have a fondness for it. The melody is evocative of loss somehow.

Lyrics:

像断了线 消失人海里面
Xiang duan le xian xiao shi ren hai li mian
Like a broken piece of string that has disappeared in a sea of people

我的眼终于失去 你的脸
Wo de yan zhong yu shi qu ni de lian
My eyes have finally lost sight of your face

再等一会 奢望流星会出现
Zai deng yi hui she wang liu xing hui chu xian
Just wait a while desperately waiting for a shooting star to appear

愿 如果真的实现
Yuan ru guo zhen de shi xian
If wishes really do come true

爱能不能永远
Ai neng bu neng yong yuan
Can love really be forever?

明天 或许来不及变
Ming tian huo xu lai bu ji bian
Tomorrow’s change may come too late

但曾经走过的昨天 越来越远
Dan ceng jing zou guo de zuo tian yue lai yue yuan
But the memories of our shared history grows dimmer by the day

* 北极星的眼泪 说不出的想念
* bei ji xing de yan lei shuo bu chu de xiang nian
* Tears from Polaris, thoughts that are unspoken

原来我们活在 两个世界
Yuan lai wo men huo zai liang ge shi jie
For we live two separate worlds apart

北极星的眼泪 你哭红的双眼
Bei ji xing de yan lei ni ku hong de shuang yan
Tears of Polaris, your eyes are red from crying

被淋湿的诺言 淹没在心里面
Bei ling shi de nuo yan yan mo zai xin li mian
Drenched promises are submerged in my heart

我抬头看着 爱不见
Wo tai tou kan zhe ai bu jian
I raise my head and find that the love has gone

再等一会 奢望流星会出现
Zai deng yi hui she wang liu xing hui chu xian
Wait a while and a shooting star shall appear

愿 如果真的实现
Yuan ru guo zhen de shi xian
If wishes really do come true

爱能不能永远
Ai neng bu neng yong yuan
Can love really be forever?

明天 或许来不及变
Ming tian huo xu lai bu ji bian
Tomorrow’s change may come too late

但曾经走过的昨天 越来越远
Dan ceng jing zou guo de zuo tian yue lai yue yuan
But the memories of our shared history grows dimmer by the day

Repeat *

当对的人 等不到对的时间
Dang dui de ren deng bu dao dui de shi jian
With the right person yet cannot find the right time

就在放开手的瞬间 爱撕成两边
Jiu zai fang kai shou de shun jian, ai si cheng liang bian
In the instant when our hands separate, the love that we share is torn in two

Repeat *

整个宇宙都 流眼泪
Zheng ge yu zhou dou liu yan lei
The whole universe is shedding tears
