Song: Jia Jia《家家》 – Dust 《塵埃》

To me Jia Jia is like the Adele of China, some of yours might recognize this song as part of the Scarlet Heart 2 (步步惊情) soundtrack. I’ve always like this song since I’ve first heard it. I also love her song Fate (命運) from Lan Ling Wang’s (兰陵王) OST. Since then she has become one of my favorite female artist.


Lyrics & Composition: 木蘭號AKA陳韋伶 | Chen Weiling

星星一直都在 這一片雲海
The stars are always here (amidst) the clouds
等著太陽疲倦之後離開
Waiting for the sun to leave when it gets weary
我也一直待在 這個模糊地帶
And I’m always here, in this twilight zone
等著你疲倦了回來
Waiting for you to return once you’re weary

*天黑之後才擁有光彩
There’s only light after the darkness
才能看見微弱的存在
Only then can you see that feeble existence
我就好像星星在距你千里之外
I’m just like the stars, a thousand miles away from you
白雲總是對藍天依賴
The clouds are always reliant on the sky
我的愛也因你而存在
Like my love only exists because of you
哪怕你不懂我的感慨和等待
Even if you don’t know of my laments and waiting

**我的愛像塵埃 散落在邊疆地帶
My love is like dust, strewn across the frontier
不再對誰期待 難道是一種自由自在
(If I) stop having expectations about anyone – does that count as a kind of freedom?
而承諾像塵埃 不斷被時間掩埋
And promises are like dust, constantly buried by the passage of time
誰還記得大雨之中的 告白
Who still remembers that confession in the pouring rain?

時間走得太快 要愛得痛快
Time passes too quickly, you have to love till you’re satisfied
寧願受傷也不想要空白
I’d rather get hurt, than not experience any of it at all
誰都想被疼愛 找一個未來
Everyone wants to be loved, looking for a future
不要在孤獨裡徘徊
No one wants to be wandering alone in loneliness

Repeat *

Repeat ** x 2

誰都想被疼愛 找一個未來
Everyone wants to be loved, looking for a future
不要在孤獨裡徘徊
No one wants to be wandering alone in loneliness


Also like piano covers of the song I like, so I have linked you with the piano cover as well
