事實為誰活得好 因此天天追逐
Hoping to provide your loved ones with a comfortable life,
You worked tirelessly day and night
不懂扭轉 惟有沈默地信服
You did not know how to return to the merry life before this,
So you silently persuaded yourself that everything you’ve done is worth it
幾多晚上也許太累青春都奉送
How many nights of your youth have you sacrificed?
就算經得起 兩眼通紅
How many nights have you borne those nights with bloodshot eyes?

現實問誰受得起 甘於天天追夢
Reality asks if anyone would dare to spend every single day chasing dreams
追到天昏地暗 沿路或失重
A route which may never ends,
A route which you may lose yourself
為著承傳來日美好 心血也附送
For the sake of the future,
You’ve sacrificed your energy and youth
忘掉寫下情書給你送
Forgetting to write love letters to those who matters

還未抱過的人
Those whom you have not hugged
未說過的遺憾
Those regrets which you never revealed
等不到抬頭月滿 天漸暗
The perfect time never came,
Yet the end of life is approaching
難道要拼命半生 方知道未抱緊
Do you need to waste half of your life to realise you have not loved someone enough?
今天在身邊 假使在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
一起懷抱夜星雲
Let’s embrace the stars among the clouds together

For the sake of the future,

今天在身邊 假使在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
一起懷抱夜星雲
Let’s embrace the stars among the clouds together

還未抱過的人
Those whom you still have not hugged
別要太過安份
Let’s put aside those differences
請分享還未贈送的一吻
Let’s not be petty with a kiss
流浪到哪地處身
Wherever you may be
哼起那段餘韻
As long as you hum that familiar melody
不管在身邊 可知在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
都可懷抱夜星雲
We could all embrace the stars among the clouds together

不管在身邊 可知在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
都可懷抱夜星雲
We could all embrace the stars among the clouds together

Thank you Sa for recommending this song. I took a long time to translate as it is not available in my music streaming app. Sorry for the wait!

Besides, I also took a long time to open up myself to this song as this is not a friendship song nor a love song. It’s a family song.

It’s about someone who has sacrificed his life believing that as long as he works hard, his family will be happy. Spending all his energy working but neglecting his family is a mistake which he only realises towards the end of his life.

Many have lived such a life, including my father.
