在你遗忘的 小时候 我在等著
I am waiting for you in our childhood memories,
A place where you might have forgotten
调色盘装满了 宇宙的颜色 单纯狂热
Our palette contained the colours of the universe, innocence and passion
哭是直觉的 笑是发自真心的
Crying was based on instinct,
While laughing came from the bottom of our heart
喜欢就拥抱著 没有复杂的 嫉妒猜测
Fondness leads to embrace,
Things were simple,
Free from jealousy and suspicion

这些年 遍体鳞伤 你 不想认输了
Wounds and scars paved your life these years,
You no longer wish to admit defeat
委屈求全 妥协 不得不做的选择
Yet you are forced to choose between difficult choices,
You gave in gradually
最后得到了什么
What did you get in the end?

从哪一天开始 不后悔 跟爱的人争执
From which day did you stop regretting after quarrelling with your lover?
势不两立地对峙 这样子
No one gave in during confrontations
承诺还有谁坚持
Is anyone still holding on to those promises?
愿望 停止 开始
Is your wish ending or beginning?

你追随的 渴望的 握在手里了
Having whatever you desired or dreamt since young
怎么会 失去了 小时候的快乐 为什么
Why would you lose the happiness you had when you were young?
你付出的 失去的 都成为你了
Whatever you paid or lost on the way,
Had shaped you into who you are today
要永远 相信著 小时候的我们 勇敢著
You must always believe that we were so brave when we were young

在你遗忘的 小时候 我在等著
I am waiting for you in our childhood memories,
A place where you might have forgotten
调色盘装满了 宇宙的颜色 单纯狂热
Our palette contained the colours of the universe, innocence and passion
哭是直觉的 笑是发自真心的
Crying was based on instinct,
While laughing came from the bottom of our heart
喜欢就拥抱著 没有复杂的 嫉妒猜测
Fondness leads to embrace,
Things were simple,
Free from jealousy and suspicion

这些年 没有黯淡 你 眼神的光泽
If the fire in your eyes did not diminish over the years
还有向往 就为自己任性地选择
If you still yearn for your dreams,
Why not make a daring decision
成为独一无二的
To become the one and only

还来得及开始 去追回 爱的人的消逝
You are still in time to chase back those whom youlove
哪怕变成最固执 这样子
Albeit looking stubborn
承诺值得更坚持
At least you are firmly keeping to your promises
愿望 重新 开始
You dream has reignited

你追随的 渴望的 握在手里了
Having whatever you desired or dreamt since young
怎么会 失去了 小时候的快乐 为什么
Why would you lose the happiness you had when you were young?
你付出的 失去的 都成为你了
Whatever you paid or lost on the way,
Had shaped you into who you are today
要永远 相信著 小时候的我们 勇敢著
You must always believe that we were so brave when we were young.

我们不过是刚好的结束
(We broke up just right)
你的眼神别像怜悯动物
(Stop giving me the expression of a pitiful animal)
不任谁摆布 Yeah
(I will not be manipulated by anyone 耶)

你送的礼物 没带走的书
(The presents that you gave,
The books that you didn’t take)
手机对话纪录
(Chat history in my mobile)
清 清空你的纪录
(Clear, clear off all your data)
Cus I Know You Baby
(亲爱的 因为我了解你)

感情怎会易碎得如此无助
(Fragile to this extent,
How could a relationship be so helpless)
像是电脑疯狂地显示错误
(Like a computer,
Popping up error messages insanely)
说的谎 像回音 Get Out Of My Head
(Those lies are like echoes,
快滚离我的大脑)

每动一次清记忆的手术
(Whenever I undergo the surgery to remove my memory)
把心切除感情就不被束缚
(I will get my heart removed so that I will no longer be under anyone’s control)
背叛我们的人 Get Out Of My Head
(Those who betrayed us,
快滚离我的大脑)

So Why Why You Gotta Be So Rude The way I treated you
(所以你为何如此无礼,
我对你那么用情)
For Love For Us For Me And You
(为了我们为了爱情,
为了我和你)
Say Why Why You Gotta Be So Rude When All I Do Is For You
(请告诉我原因,
为何你如此无礼,
我所做的一切都是为了你)
For Love For Us For Me And You
(为了我们为了爱情,
为了我和你)

我们不过是三角的函数
(We are just trigonometric functions)
连科学家也算不出变数
(Even mathematicians couldn’t figure out our variables)
难怪错得离谱
(No wonder everything was utterly wrong)

爱是种艺术 不需要战术
(Love is an art,
It doesn’t require tactics)
让我展现风度
(It’s for me to display my demeanour)
清 清空你的篇幅
(Clear, clear off all your space)
Cus I Know You Baby
(亲爱的 因为我了解你)

感情怎会易碎得如此无助
(Fragile to this extent,
How could a relationship be so helpless)
像是电脑疯狂地显示错误
(Like a computer,
Popping up error messages insanely)
说的谎 像回音 Get Out Of My Head
(Those lies are like echoes,
快滚离我的大脑)

每动一次清记忆的手术
(Whenever I undergo the surgery to remove my memory)
把心切除感情就不被束缚
(I will get my heart removed so that I will no longer be under anyone’s control)
背叛我们的人 Get Out Of My Head
(Those who betrayed us,
快滚离我的大脑)

So Why Why You Gotta Be So Rude The way I treated you

我对你那么用情)
For Love For Us For Me And You
(为了我们为了爱情,
为了我和你)
Say Why Why You Gotta Be So Rude When All I Do Is For You
(请告诉我原因,
为何你如此无礼,
我所做的一切都是为了你)
For Love For Us For Me And You
(为了我们为了爱情,
为了我和你)
