Rainbow 彩虹 (cǎihóng)

by 周杰伦 zhou Jielun ( by Jay Chou)

In Simplified Chinese

哪里有彩虹告诉我
能不能把我的愿望还给我
为什么天这么安静
所有的云都跑到我这里

有没有口罩一个给我
释怀说了太多就成真不了
也许时间是一种解药
也是我现在正服下的毒药
看不见你的笑 我怎么睡得著
你的声音这么近我却抱不到
没有地球太阳还是会绕
没有理由我也能自己走
你要离开 我知道很简单
你说依赖 是我们的阻碍
就算放开 那能不能别没收我的爱
当作我最后才明白

Rainbow 彩虹 (cǎihóng)

In English Translation

Tell me where to find a rainbow
Can you return my wishes
Why is the sky so quiet
[Because] all the clouds have run to where I am.

Do you have a mouth mask for me?
For if I open up and say too much,  they won’t come true
Perhaps time is an antidote
It is also a poison that I am taking
How can I sleep without seeing your smile
Your voice is so near yet I can’t embrace you
The sun can still rotate without the earth
I can also keep going myself without reason
I know it is easy for you to leave
You said dependance is the barrier between us
Even if you decide to let go, can you not confiscate my love?
I will just pretend that I will eventually understand.

Rainbow 彩虹 (cǎihóng)

by 周杰倫 zhou Jielun ( by Jay Chou)

In Traditional Chinese

哪裡有彩虹告訴我
能不能把我的願望還給我
為什麼天這麼安靜
所有的雲都跑到我這裡

有沒有口罩一個給我
釋懷說了太多就成真不了
也許時間是一種解藥
也是我現在正服下的毒藥
看不見你的笑 我怎麼睡得著
你的聲音這麼近我卻抱不到
沒有地球太陽還是會繞
沒有理由我也能自己走
你要離開 我知道很簡單
你說依賴 是我們的阻礙
就算放開 那能不能別沒收我的愛
當作我最後才明白
