Music Monday – I Really Want to Love This World by Hua Chen Yu

Music Monday is a meme created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Hi friends 💜

While on my way back from work, I heard this really enthralling, melodic voice over the radio and was immediately overwhelmed by the need to find this song. I spent 3 hours on the internet, Googling for this specific song, using my substandard knowledge of Chinese (I’m fluent in speaking and listening, but writing and reading? Awful [Forgive ancestors 😂])

I Really Want to Love This World (好想爱这个世界啊) by Hua Chen Yu (华晨宇)

English Translation of Lyrics

Cuddled up on the sofa, sleepy eyes, messy hair
Yet yearning to be as care-free as the main character in a movie
Below the eave, rows of crows were closely nestled
I didn’t know how to express the suppressed emotions

No matter I was here or there
Like the soulless chirping of insects
Yet I understood that I needed to make the effort somehow at this moment
No matter I am here or there
The past cannot be remedied, whenever I remember…

I once thought of leaving to exist in absence
It was because of those narratives, those stances, and those inflicted pains
I didn’t want to leave
When you said you were still there
Suddenly, I started to have an indescribable hope

The sun set in the west while I was scrolling through the phone
I had no one to call
Isn’t that what I deserve as a habitually lonely man?
On a single-log bridge, who should be pushed off
so that a winner can be declared ?
When will my silent resistance
succeed in overcoming it?

No matter I was here or there
Like the soulless chirping of insects
Yet I understood that I needed to make the effort somehow at that moment
No matter I am here or there
The past cannot be remedied, whenever I remember…

I once thought of leaving and to exist in absence
It was because of those narratives, those stances, and those inflicted pains
I don’t want to leave
Perhaps if I tried to accept love
I would start to look forward to the future

Scars
Just leave them to the memories
Let them go
Then you can gain better things in life
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid

I have thought of leaving
When the sun lost to the haze
I never thought that you would sweep it away for me with all your might

Once I thought of leaving
Those pains
I don’t want to leave

When your smile blooms
Suddenly, the world is filled with colors
Cuddled up on the sofa, sleepy eyes, messy hair
The sun set in the west, the call went through

Oh, it’s you
