This was a commissioned translation by @cumvillain!
This song is about growing up and sort of looking back to the past for relief and comfort when you feel bad, according to an interview with Lingling.
Translation and notes under the cut:
I’m tired of them
Look, I’ll try replacing my friends, replacing them
Isn’t living easy?
It’s not disgusting
But it feels unreasonable
I can’t go on like this
Even as I punish myself for breathing too much
I soon vanish with a sigh
Where do I go?
To a heart pure
The blueprint of that place
Kind memories, I want to meet them again, but I can’t
A spew – I’m about to go back, I can’t go back
The bad weather brought with the scent of a new term
Sunny weather that could make my heart kinder
Play with me?
That I’m in the middle of becoming a bad person
And I can’t do
A thing about it
I was satisfied, but in a second
All around me becomes loneliness
That’s the city
A loop of
“I want to go back”
You know, I know what ‘white lies’ are
If you don’t want to see me
Just say it
My worries grow old
I’m just watching
Scenes from my childhood
Blown on the wind, nostalgic, those times
I put back my memories –
And I stood my ground
I simply passed the time trying, trying my best
And now I simply want to be left home alone
