Song: Escape Plan (逃跑计划) – The Brightest Star In The Night Sky (夜空中最亮的星)

I really loved this song after listening to Jason (张杰)’s rendition of the song on “I Am A Singer”

Lyrics in Chinese

夜空中最亮的星 能否听清
那仰望的人 心底的孤独和叹息
夜空中最亮的星 能否记起
曾与我同行 消失在风里的身影

我祈祷拥有一颗透明的心灵 和会流泪的眼睛
给我再去相信的勇气 越过谎言去拥抱你
每当我找不到存在的意义 每当我迷失在黑夜里
夜空中最亮的星 请指引我靠近你

夜空中最亮的星 是否知道
曾与我同心的身影 如今在哪里
夜空中最亮的星 是否在意
是等太阳升起 还是意外先来临

我宁愿所有痛苦都留在心里 也不愿忘记你的眼睛
给我再去相信的勇气 越过谎言去拥抱你
每当我找不到存在的意义 每当我迷失在黑夜里
夜空中最亮的星 请照亮我前行

我祈祷拥有一颗透明的心灵 和会流泪的眼睛
给我再去相信的勇气 越过谎言去拥抱你
每当我找不到存在的意义 每当我迷失在黑夜里
夜空中最亮的星 请照亮我前行

夜空中最亮的星 能否听清
那仰望的人 心底的孤独和叹息

I have reblogged Cfensi’s English translation of the song below for those who wanted to read the meaning of the song.

Cfensi

The most popular song of 2014 was not a pop song, but one released in 2011 by indie band Escape Plan.   “The brightest star in the night sky 夜空中最亮的星” resonated with listeners with its catchy tune and lost but still hopeful lyrics, and the song slowly gained a cult following. The song was later covered in various singing competitions, notably Zhang Jie in I am Singer 2 and Zhang Hengyuan in The Voice of China 2.  Three highly recommended versions (harmonica, Qin Lan, Qin Lan and child) also appear in the eeMedia musical Journey to the Song & War.  

English translation by me:
