English translation

甜蜜蜜 Tian Mi Mi

(As sweet as honey)

As sweet as honey
your smile is so sweet as honey

just like the way flowers bloom
in the spring breeze
in the spring breeze

i wonder where on earth
where on earth i’ve seen you?

your smile is so familiar to me
but i still can not remember where!

Ah….. in my dreams!!!

in my dreams ,
in my dreams i’ve met you

with your smile that is so sweet,
so sweet as honey

It is you,
It is you,
the one i saw
in my dreams

i wonder where on earth
where on earth i’ve seen you?

your smile is so familiar to me
