1. intro

Today the plane is bringing me home. The ticket in my hand says from New York to Taipei to Boston to DengJing to HongKong to BeiJing to ShangHai, Singapore, Malaysia... bringing with it, my love... my songs... my heart thinking of you...

Today the plane is bringing me home. Although I haven't seen her, my love is unchanging. And I will always be thinking of you... when I close my eyes... remembering the good times we had together... when I'm making music, I'll be thinking of you. I'll plan a day when I will meet you again. That will be forever's first day.

2. yongyuan de diyi tian (forever's first day)

Verse
A confused night is often lonely... very silent...
I've finally seen you wearing a windbreaker, holding on to your luggage, listening to MD, walking here and there...
The past... is in my heart and it's all full of you.
I walk over to hug you
The sound of your voice [literally ~ your sound], your smile, your dripping tears... return to me.
You promised me that today if I flew over, you wound bring your real love
So I flew over the huge ocean to bring love back.

Chorus
Today I have seen forever's first day
It is real? Me and you...
Time causes people to be pulled far away from each other... love is in my heart. It has not changed.
Today I have seen love fly over boundaries... let me finish talking. How I feel towards you
This is the starting point... I will surely love you until forever.
(Ooh... Today I have seen love's first day)

Bridge
The past... is in my heart and it's all full of you.
I walk over to hug you
The sound of your voice [literally ~ your sound], your smile, your dripping tears... return to me.

You promised me that if I flew over today... I want to say in this second...
I love you... Say that we will never part [literally ~ say that forever we will not split]

3. long de chuanren (descendents of the dragon)

This is what he wrote in Chinese in the book: (The year 2000 is the year of the dragon, and it is also the year I was born. The meaning it has to me is too great. It means a new beginning, which brings many new opportunities and feelings. "Descendents Of The Dragon" was the first Mandarin song I ever heard [this song is a remake]. I, a Chinese person who was born and raised in the United States, not only will be a descendent of the dragon when I grow up, but now and forevermore.)

Verse
In the north faraway, there is a river
Its name is ZhangJiang
In the north faraway, there is a river [a different word though]
Its name is the Yellow River
In the north faraway, there is a dragon
Its name is China.
There is also a group of people... they are all the descendents of the dragon.
They are all the descendents of the dragon.
All this helps me grow... and after I am grown, I will become a descendent of the dragon.
Black eyes, black hair, yellow SKIN [shutup allen-san!]
Forever being the descendent of the dragon...

In the north faraway, there is a river
Its name is ZhangJiang
In the north faraway, there is a river [a different word though]
Its name is the Yellow River (its name is the Yellow River)
Never able to see the beauty of the ZhangJiang
Only dreaming of the Yellow River's waters...
Never able to see the power of the Yellow River
Its misting waters only seen in a dream.

In the north faraway, there is a dragon
Its name is China.
There is also a group of people... they are all the descendents of the dragon.
They are all the descendents of the dragon. (They are all...)

Rap
Now here's a story that'll make you cry... straight from Taiwan they came just a girl and a homeboy (in love)... no money no job no speak no English... nobody gonna give them the time of day in a city so cold they made a wish, and then they had the strength to graduate, with honor, and borowed fifty just to consummate a marriage under GOD, who never left their side, gave their children pride, raise your voices high... love will never die never die...

So many years ago on a peaceful night, my whole family went to New York...
The burning fire in my heart made me miss my family every night and everyday
Other people help me grow up... after I am grown I will be a descendent of the dragon
Dragon dragon, you will wipe bright eyes [????], forever you will wipe bright eyes [sorry I don't know what the heck that means]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. bu yao haipa (don't be afraid)

Chorus
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, loving a person is not necessarily complicated
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, you have today to wipe past tears

Verse
At two o'clock in the middle of the night, I cannot drift off into sleep...
The time is fleeing... my hurt is still lingering
The blanket is warming me up
Love is fleeing... and my missing you is increasing.

Chorus
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, loving a person is not necessarily complicated
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, you have today to wipe past tears

Bridge
I promised myself not to let go and I promised myself not to forget...
When I close my eyes I see your figure...
From every single angle it seems like I am hovering
It's because I see you that I am hurt by you
It's you in my heart whom I continually think of...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. the world of wild imagination

Rap
Traffic on the internet, the __ is feeble, the drumroll is out of control, waiting until the sky is dark, I want to talk about love, the __ is too lazy, things are too expensive [hehehe... I feel ya LeeHom! =P], loans are piling up, the city is falling, people want to fall apart, there is good weather, just one chance to runaway, in this busy city, everything is annoying, like a little child, flying as one wants, singing loudly, I'm just myself it's alright. Around the world I've been looking for myself, for love I have no care, welcome to the world of wild imagination.

Maybe I'm afraid of holding your hand in this lonely night
I'm walking in the middle of a crowd but there's no one caring who I am.
I want to hold onto your hand but you already have someone accompanying it.
Maybe I should just leave... my mood will fly with me.

Doesn't matter, doesn't matter... my heart... is flying...
I want to catch... your beauty... I don't care whose heart crushes
Doesn't matter, doesn't matter... my heart... is flying...
I want to catch... your beauty... I don't care whose heart crushes

There's no problems about who wronged another, there is no playing games
I don't want to see you crying for anyone, I will say "I love you" so that it is like a drug.
Smoking a little and drinking coffee... you have already fallen asleep.
It doesn't feel as if the night is that dark anymore... let me walk in loneliness for a while again.

Doesn't matter, doesn't matter... my heart... is flying...
I want to catch... your beauty... I don't care whose heart crushes
One heart is making me fly... one dream is making me search after it
(I've withstanded this for too long so there's no turning back. It gives me freedom... no need for excuses.)
Your love is not here... doesn't matter... doesn't matter...
(Your love isn't even here... I'm not waiting for you to return. After all you really believed that I didn't care?)
Doesn't matter... doesn't matter... my heart is flying
(I've withstanded this for too long so there's no turning back. It gives me freedom... no need for excuses.)
I want to catch... your beauty... I don't care whose heart crushes
(Your love isn't even here... I'm not waiting for you to return. After all you really believed that I didn't care?)

Bridge (2x)
The empty white page of today's diary entry... I put on your ring, not thinking that it was without a flaw...
If there is really a world of wild imagination, love will make us part... (?), thank you for giving me this chance...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. ganqing shi wutai (love is a stage)

Spotlight on me...
Everything is getting so crazy
The music is starting
The microphone is in your hands
Walk into love's elevator
Every floor has an exciting drama
The whole world is full of people talking about love
It's all like a famous performer
Whoever is sitting in the first row knows that feelings are like a stage.

Chorus
Please please please, I'm begging for your love which makes me too helpless
Baby please, ooh yee ooh, in the sea of your mind
Feelings are like a stage...

People who have had their hearts shattered shouldn't cry
Tomorrow there is another chance, and you can even (pretend?)
You can act out your own performance

The Snow White in the middle of your heart comes out at the image of yourself

Chorus

So when all you kids out there talk on the phone and your girl's on the other line and she's saying "please baby please baby!" ... aw, how sad. And if all the world's a stage, well then you know we are merely players. It's only natural 2 b a player, ha ha ha!

Chorus

Love is too bitter... a bittersweet honey
Makes me unable to bear the encouragement
Ooh yee ooh... I just realized... that feelings are like a stage.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. huanxi cheng (city of pleasure)

There is a city... anything you want is available
A warm place with traffic that is very crowded
You can say "haha" to whoever you meet and no one would care...
Prepare yourself [note: physically ~ like with makeup and stuff]
Let's leave immediately... Come on, let's go go go! Wait a minute, where are you going?
An unfamiliar honey... seemily with no feeling
Can also be concealed...
One night stand I heard it was still low [??]
In the bar, KTV, tonight don't close either of those...

Come with me this delight remains
No one really remembers the meaning of silence...
Come with me this delight remains
No one is suitable for you; I'll help you escape.

A complicated model (a complicated model)
Is beginning to get popular (is beginning to get popular)
A heavy bottom with shoes [??]
Don't forget the [?? sorry I don't understand Chinese slang...]
Suddenly in the city there seems to be an evil force...
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, there will certainly be a change.
The colorful city in which everyone loves you
There is no time to organize...
In the internet there lives a group of lonely people
Use a code name...
I'll accompany you in chatting... but don't put too much feeling into it...
Come with me this delight remains
No one really remembers the meaning of silence...
Come with me this delight remains
No one is suitable for you; I'll help you escape.
Come with me this delight remains
Maybe it is in a dream, but it is still peaceful.
Come with me the delight remains
If only you didn't have the courage for love...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. wang le shijian wang le wo (forgotten the time and myself)

Narration
You know it's kinda funny... it's been raining everyday since you left. Now I'm sitting here... and all I think about is you...

Verse
You walk into my life
And suddenly intellect leaves a footprint
And I am starting not to communicate...
I'm missing you so much that I'm going crazy

A naughty [literally ~ not listening to words] heart beats
It moves quickly in my chest
It is slowly being wound up
It ties me up and flies next to you

Like the faithful blowing night wind
It goes towards your corner
It's an illusion like me

Chorus
I've forgotten the time and myself
My eyes and my hand
My ears and my mouth
They all aren't remaining with me...
They're all leaving with you.

I've forgotten the time and myself
We are just like a pair of hands
Happiness is over with you
Pain hides with you

Bridge
Can you tell me that you love me? You think of me?
The universe in your eyes has a span of stars which is me.
It won't turn into tears
I will ache for you for a long time
Just count it as the world is on fire
Just count it as the land is sinking...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. zhe jiu shi ai (love is just this)

Verse One
A person with freedom doesn't know what color love is
On the large street, there is a girl who is looking at me
She walks over like a happy angel...

This love has already started... is it my heart which is slowly changing?
Like this, she starts smiling towards me
It's very odd... my mood is becoming high with her

Chorus
So this is love... I finally understand it
The whole world with a happy feeling
I don't care how far I need to go to love
So this is love... asking me to make a trip to it
[Even with] these stakes, I'm not afraid of losing
You give me one chance... this is love.

Verse Two
Maybe it is that I shouldn't follow it
Because of you it seems like I am always lost
There is a desire to send you roses
To tell you that because of you I feel romantic

Believe me, it's true that love is flying
I really will not make you cry
Your heart... I know it. You don't need to say anything.
I'm guessing that we both were made for each other..

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11. ni keyi gaoshu wo (you can tell me)

Verse One
On the envelope I have written your new address
You moved again because you're afraid that you have no changes in your life
This time it is really a pity that we have not met
I didn't imagine that there would be such a seperation between us

Chorus One
Today... the plane is taking me back home.
Although I haven't seen her... hurry up and fly...
Oh ~ Can you tell me who you still love?
You don't need to say his name, and you don't need to describe his beauty
A person who is half flying in the air will cry [literally ~ drop tears]
Can you tell me who it is you still love?

Verse Two
Below I can see that Taipei is really a happy playground
Now I've just realized that I've seen a beautiful place to live
Oh well... this month I come back one (at least one)
This time I should better write you a new song

Chorus Two
Today... the plane is taking me back home.
Although I haven't talked to you
Close your eyes...
Oh ~ Can you tell me who you still love?
You don't need to say his name, and you don't need to describe his beauty
A person who is half flying in the air will cry [literally ~ drop tears]
Can you tell me who it is you still love?

Bridge
You can tell me. I am willing to listen.
I'm just wondering why when I hug you you have to react.
I think it is just a person who has stayed up too many nights.
I bet you are lonely like me... I bet you are lonely like me...
I bet you are lonely like me.
