English

A sword swings, severing lingering threads of love, yet longing remains
Who will take pity? Blow out the lantern under the waning moon
The past turns to butterflies, flying over the flower fields, parting again
Holding back tears, I wait for the joy of reuniting one day

The flower petals fall like snow
At night, the city fills with wandering ghosts
The love I hold faithfully has never dimmed one bit
Time leaves no trace on your skin yet the journey has turned white robes to grey
After tirelessly chasing fate, we meet again

When we parted, the flowers withered away
I long for the beautiful sight of full bloom
and you glancing back at me, eyes filled with ballads of happiness
When we parted, the flowers fell to ruin
Leaving only the intoxication of having once bloomed
If you pass me by, all the flavours* of the world would dull to nothing

If you pass me by, all the flavours of the world would dull to nothing

A sword swings and our entangled fate disappears, yet traces remain
Who will take pity? Blow out the lantern under the waning moon
The past turns to butterflies; yesterday we were two, today we fly as one
Holding back tears, I wait for the joy of reuniting one day

The flower petals fall like snow
At night, the city fills with wandering ghosts
The love I hold faithfully has never dimmed one bit
Time leaves no trace on your skin yet the journey has turned white robes to grey
After tirelessly chasing fate, we meet again

When we parted, the flowers withered away
I long for the beautiful sight of full bloom
and you glancing back at me, eyes filled with ballads of happiness
When we parted, the flowers fell to ruin
Leaving only the intoxication of having once bloomed
If you pass me by, all the flavours of the world would dull to nothing
x2

Turn around and we’ll walk the long, endless road together, never parting

Translation Notes

The song title “No Separation” is taken from the official YT upload, though actually I would’ve preferred “No Partings” or “Never Part”. ^^

*all the flavours: The literal line was “If I miss [the chance to meet/accompany] you, tasting all the sweets and sours [of this world/life] would still have no flavour”.

  4. Just a quick question. You translated this well, and your Pinyin is accurate. Do you speak Chinese, or possibly come from China…?? I’m sorry if this is insulting…………….
