会不会 有一天 时间真的能倒退
Will there be a day when time will rewind?
退回 你的我的 回不去的 悠悠的岁月
Rewinding back to the good old days which we can never return

也许会 有一天 世界真的有终点
Perhaps, there will be a day when the world comes to an end
也要和你举起回忆酿的甜 和你再干一杯
Before that, let’s raise our cup filled with sweet memories and say “Cheers!” once again

如果说 要我选出 代表青春 那个画面
If I were to choose the scene that represents “youth”
浮现了 那滴眼泪 那片蓝天 那年毕业
Surfacing my mind would be that year of graduation,
That clear blue sky and that drop of tear
那一张 边哭边笑 还要拥抱 是你的脸
Demanding embrace is you with your face mixed with joy and tears
想起来 可爱可怜 可歌可泣 可是多怀念
How lovely, yet sad,
How joyous, yet blue,
How I miss those times

怀念总是 突然怀念 不谈条件
Reminiscence always occurs without a warning
当回忆 冲破考卷 冲出岁月 在我眼前
Memories charge through those exam papers and time,
And appear before my eyes
我和你 流着汗水 喝着汽水 在操场边
You and I,
drinking soda and sweating by the fieldside
说好了 无论如何 一起走到 未来的世界
We promised to walk to the future side by side

现在就是 那个未来 那个世界
It is the future now
为什么 你的身边 我的身边 不是同一边
Why do we no longer have each other by our sides?
友情曾像 诺亚方舟 坚强誓言
We said that our friendship is as strong as Noah’s ark,
And it will last forever
只是我 望着海面 等著永远 模糊了视线
Here I am, staring out at the sea with tears filling my eyes,
Waiting for forever

会不会 有一天 时间真的能倒退
Will there be a day when time will rewind?
退回 你的我的 回不去的 悠悠的岁月
Rewinding back to the good old days which we can never return

也许会 有一天 世界真的有终点
Perhaps, there will be a day when the world comes to an end
也要和你举起回忆酿的甜 和你再干一杯
Before that, let’s raise our cup filled with sweet memories and say “Cheers!” once again

这些年 买了四轮 买了手表 买了单眼
These years, I have bought a car, a watch and a camera
却发现 追不到的 停不了的 还是那些
Yet they can’t chase or stop things I desire
人生是 只有认命 只能宿命 只好宿醉
Life forces us to presign ourselves to fate,
Hangover is probably the only way we could celebrate
只剩下 高的笑点 低的哭点 却没成熟点
Leaving us with high laughter threshold,
Low crying threshold,
But never a bit did we mature

成熟就是 幻想幻灭 一场磨练
Maturity is the grinding of dreams
为什么 只有梦想 越磨越小 小到不见
Why would only our dreams be grinded,
To fine particles and ashes
有时候 好想流泪 好想流泪 却没眼泪
Sometimes I feel like crying,
But there is no tears
期待会 你会不会 他会不会 开个同学会
Hoping that perhaps he or you will organise a class gathering

他在等你 你在等我 我在等谁
He is waiting for you,
You are waiting for me and who am I waiting for?
又是谁 孩子没睡 电话没电 心情没准备
Whose children are still awake?
Whose phone ran out of battery?
And who is mentally unprepared?
天空不断 黑了又亮 亮了又黑
The sky turns dark and bright continuously
那光阴 沧海桑田 远走高飞 再没力气追
Time flies and we no longer have the energy to chase it

会不会 有一天 时间真的能倒退
Will there be a day when time will rewind?
退回 你的我的 回不去的 悠悠的岁月
Rewinding back to the good old days which we can never return

也许会 有一天 世界真的有终点
Perhaps, there will be a day when the world comes to an end
也要和你举起回忆酿的甜 和你再干一杯
Before that, let’s raise our cup filled with sweet memories and say “Cheers!” once again

会不会 有一天 时间真的能倒退
Will there be a day when time will rewind?
退回 你的我的 回不去的 悠悠的岁月
Rewinding back to the good old days which we can never return

也许会 有一天 世界真的有终点
Perhaps, there will be a day when the world comes to an end
也要和你举起回忆酿的甜 和你再干一杯
Before that, let’s raise our cup filled with sweet memories and say “Cheers!” once again

终究会 有一天 我们都变成昨天
Ultimately, there will be a day when we will become yesterday
是你 陪我走过 一生一回 匆匆的人间
It’s you who accompanied me in my one and only life

有一天 就是今天 今天就是有一天
There will be a day and that is today
说出一直没说 对你的感谢 和你再干一杯
When I will finally say “Thank you”
再干一杯永远 喝了就能万岁 岁岁和年年
Let’s say “Cheers!” once again,
For the future,
For “forever”

时间都停了 他们都回来了
Time has stopped and they have all come back
怀念的人啊 等你的来到
People whom you miss are waiting for you

时间都停了 他们都回来了
Time has stopped and they have all come back
怀念的人啊 等你的来到
People whom you miss are waiting for you…
