Many thanks to Memoriae and sn0w85. The translation work cannot be done without their help!

I post here the English translation of the whole song as well as the meanings for each chinese words or expressions so that you can have your own understanding. What's more, you can learn Chinese.

Poor Student

Looking at the blackboard
Those incomprehensive ideas
Are laughing at me why I am like this
OH those stupid looks
I know I have to bring glory
But I always get hurt
Dark circles always stay with the eyes
Don’t ask me why I am nervous

Poor Students’ nights are accompanied with red-rimmed eyes
Let their wish go and receive mercy from the moonlight
Afraid of the homework, I just ignore it
When the clock ticks 7 it will be tomorrow
Poor students seem to be walking down an unfamiliar street
But also hope they can have their wish come true
Afraid of others’ views, I just don’t want to see
Who says I only have yesterday?


看着(look at)黑板上(the blackboard)
不解的(confused)想法(ideas)
嘲笑(laugh at)我(me)怎么(how)就这样(like this)
OH 傻傻的(silly/stupid)模样(looks)
我(I)知道(know)要(have to)争光(win honor)
却(but)总是(always)受伤(get hurt)
黑眼圈(black-eye)总(always)离不开(cannot leave)眼眶(eye socket)
别(don’t)问(ask)为什么(why)紧张(nervous)

差生的(Poor Students')夜(night)伴奏(be accompanied with)哭红的(red with weeping)眼(eye)
放走(let off)心愿(wish)只(only)受(receive)月光的(moonlight)怜(mercy)
害怕(be afraid of)作业(homework)反正我(I)像(as if)看不见(cannot see)
等(wait)钟(clock)到了七点(7 o’ clock)就是(it is)明天(tomorrow)
差生(poor student)像是(seem)走(walking)在(at)陌生的(unfamiliar)街(street)
却(but)也(also)希望(hope)能够(can)把(have)梦(dream)实现(come true)
害怕(be afraid of)眼光(others’ views)反正(in any case/anyway)我(I)不(don’t)想(want)看见(see)
谁(who)说(say)我(only)就(just)只有(only have)昨天(yesterday)

Floating Subway

Half an earth away, you are there
When the world is raining, I am here
Traveling among the crowd, I don’t care about the weather
But our past days become a memory

How much energy should love take away from the heart?
God asks me to see more different things
Wandering about in the future, I am aimless
I’m only left with a drop of tear held in my heart

We are half a world away
Let me sit on the floating subway and move on
And still think of you

We are half a world away
The time takes away everything, but leaves behind a riddle
It wants me to ride the wind

A kilometer of a memory flutters into the air
How much pain do the hands need to play the piano?
The dream after we parted is still meaningful
It doesn’t matter where I fly towards to

Through the dark, I fly across the oceans
And stay a night at each place on the map
The past says don’t come back
Maybe I can do that

Half a world away
Let me sit on the floating subway and miss you
And forget you

We are half a world away
I looked at the sky again, but I can’t see you
Like the wind in a sea of clouds

The later me remembered the former you
Come back to me
We are half a world away
The later rain seems like playing the piano
Pretty but painful

当(when)半个(half)地球 (earth) 外(away)还有(still)个(a)你(you)
当(when)世界(world)下着雨(is raining)我(I)在(am)这里(here)
在(at)人海中(the crowd)旅行(travel)哪管(don’t care)天气(the weather)
但(but)我们(our)那一天(those days)变成(become)记忆(memory)

爱(love)浪费(waste)一颗心(a heart)多少(how much)力气(energy)
天(God)叫(ask)我(me)要去看(to see)更多(more)事情(things)
在(at)未来中(the future)流浪(wander about)没有(without)目的(goal)
我(I)只(only)剩(left)一滴(a drop of)泪(tear)捏(hold)在(at)心里(heart)

We are Half a World Away
让(let)我(me)坐(sit)上(on)漂浮(floating)地铁(subway)走(go)下去(further)
也(also)想着(think of)你(you)

We are Half a World Away
时间(the time)带走(takes away)一切(everything)但是(but)抛下(leave/drop)一个(a)谜 (riddle/puzzle)
它(it)要(want)我(me)乘着(ride)风 (wind)


一公里的(a kilometer)回忆(memory)飘(floating)成空气 (air)
一双(a pair)手(hand)要(need)多(how much)苦(pain)才能(be able to)弹(play)琴(piano)
分开(separate)两边(two places) 的(‘s)梦(dream)也(also)有(have)意义(meaning)
我(I)往(to)哪里(where)飞(fly)没有(no)关系(matter)

穿过(through)夜(night)我(I)飞(fly)过(across)海(ocean)
地图上(on the map)所有(all)地方(places)我(I)都停(stay)一夜(a night)
往事(the past)说(say)别(don’t)回来(come back)
我(I)也许(maybe)可以(can do)

Half a World Away
让(Let)我(me)坐(sit)上(on)漂浮(floating)地铁(subway)想念(miss)你(you)
也(and)忘了(forgot)你(you)

We are Half a World Away
再(once again)看(look at)天空(sky)一眼但是(but)缺少(lack)一个(a)你(you)
像(like)云海里(a sea of clouds/ a cloud sea)的('s)风(wind)

后来(later)的(‘s)我(me)想起(remember)从前(former)那个(that)你(you)
Come back to me
We are half a world away
后来(the later)的(‘s)雨(rain)都(all)像是(look like)在弹钢琴(be playing piano)
很(very)美(beautiful)也(and)很(very)痛(painful)

I tried to flesh out the English translation so it would flow better. Unfortunately I wasn't able to do much to the wording without losing most of the meaning of the song.
Everspring did an excellent job

You dont know how happy I am right now. Finally I can understand Chun's songs. You did a great job, everspring. Just keep it up
And what do 2 sentences you stated above mean ?
Actually, I was quite surprised how Chun could impress me while I cant even understand what she says and sings. I guess her face, her look and the way she sings. I cant stop looking at her. I found a song "the same like you" that some yumis sing. And they almost made me cry with their voices, with their love to Chun. That's so amazing.

I tried to make the english translation sound better, but it wasn't easy ^_^
Usually, when a song is translated into english, the song loses some of its meaning, since translating to english isn't perfect.

和你一样 (Just Like You)

Who would pat on my shoulder, When I’m in need
Who would like to share the joy with me, when I’m happy
The days are so long, and I am with you
Witnessing your growth makes me full of passion and strength

Who can forget the hurt that we shared along the way
Who can expect where will you be in that boundless future
With smiles on the face, just like you
Singing loudly and applaud for myself/ourselves

I am same as you, and we are both strong
And go all out to chase my dream
Even if I would get hurt; Even if there would be storm
There will be a charming fragrance after the rain

I am same as you, and we are both kind hearted
To build a heaven for the needy
The song is the wing, singing out the hope
All the efforts are for the power of love

We are the same, with the same strength
To be young and shining in the golden light
Even if we would get hurt; Even if there would be storm
The sun will shine after the rain

We are the same, with the same kind heartedness
To build a heaven for the needy
The song is the wing, singing out the hope
All the efforts are for the power of love

Just like you
We are all the same


Who would pat on my shoulder, When I’m in need
Who would like to share the joy with me, when I’m happy
The days are so long, but I am with you
To witness your growth
And always applaud for you

冬天快乐 Happy Winter

The snow makes me a little happy
The white ground
And the light ruts stretching into the distance
If at this moment it falls
The pure sound of the piano
I will say to myself
Happy Winter

I like the window that has no writings on
Through it, the sky is clear
And a little moonlight remains on the trees
I like the empty court
I listen to the echoing days alone
Staring at the sadness in the dark night

Getting used to you
Just take myself as you
We are together
Breathing quietly and calmly

Getting used to you
Just take myself as you
Therefore whether I’m singing or keeping silent
I am greeting you
Happy Winter
(Merry christmas)

我是你的xx (I Am Your xx)

I am your xx ( nobody)
When you need me, I am talking to you
When you need me to keep quiet, I learn to pretend to be mute
Because I am not your “his”/ “her”
Only your xx (nobody)
You need not to answer my questions
I will not play gooseberry to embarrass you
Because I know I am not your “his”/ “her” after all
Don’t feel sad for me
This is such a sweet wound
I just want to see your smiling mouth
Do not need to bother who is whose.

想哭(Wanna Cry)

Perhaps it is the fog that makes my sight blurred
The world is getting more and more unclear
I feel your retreating footsteps
Cannot be seen, and cannot be hold on to
I am used to live by myself and don't care the loneliness
When feeling thirsty, a cup of water is the best –end result
When someone accompanies one’s shadow
I feel like crying
Finally I know that loneliness is too unbearable
Giving up everything just for a helplessness
I struggle so much that I am numb to it
After all love is but a mistake
Thought that loneliness is not to be a burden
A person’s time stop at the start

When wake up from the dream, I start to think of the way of going back
However, the future is becoming unclear
However, the future is becoming blur

我的王国 My Kingdom

The mast lowered at the mouth of Hudson River
Early mist clothed the strange wharf
The high leather boots have already been worn out
As they accompanied the alien(me) drifting about

The Sicily shore is indented with gentleness
The wooden barrels are packed with olive oil
The fragment of memory are pieced together ruthlessly
Be silent for a second
And listen to my proclamation


I sing out my songs to the whole world,
This is my kingdom that others will never be able to learn
Don’t be afraid, come quickly to my dormain that is filled with love
I will take you away from the sea of misery
My music is my own trump card

Can you feel it
Can you feel it
Can you feel it
Feel it deep inside

Over the compact and narrow attic
It is following the stringless balloon
Metropolitan theater presents the broadway shows
Which cannot compare to the my hometown' puppet shows

I smoothed out the ruffles on my blue sky shirt
And put the faded cuff link in the leather suitcase
The sound of violin is wandering about
Be silent for a second
And listen to our proclamation

I sing out my songs to the whole world,
This is my kingdom that other people will never be able to learn
Don’t be afraid, come quickly to my dormain that is filled with love
I will take you away from the sea of misery
My music is my own trump card

The corner of the red-brick street
The cheap gallons of liquor
The high sound of peddling
With no desire in their eyes

There is no time to wait
The depression is distilled
The hard-working hands
Are blessed by the Gods

Anywhere is a battlefield, soldier soldier
The victory, with a ray of light, comes closer closer
Don't be satisfied to accept any more
Ideals cannot be accommodated
For a real freedom
Please go on and fight

This song talks about a drifting artist who travels around the world with his violin. This time he arrives at the Silily Island and see the romantic coastline, the strange quay, the broadway shows and the peddling people. There he plays his music around to ease the pains of the folk and give them inspirations. He seems alone but he brings his music to the people around the world and somehow creats a kingdom of himself.

Singing Loudly

My dream is shined with a colored light
Spread out my wings and fly to anywhere I want to go
My dream grows stronger along with my smiles
The loud voice passes by the vast ocean

This world is filled with imagination, follow the notes and we shall fly together
After going through the happiness and grief, thank you for standing by my side

Being happy is my energy, to shine my own light
Just sing, when you wish to sing and sing it loudly, do not be afraid of being prevented by the wind and the rain
Being happy is my energy, to shine my own light
Every expectant look is the witness of my growth
I am singing, and singing it loudly

This world is filled with imagination, follow the notes and we shall fly together
After going through the happiness and grief, thank you for standing by my side
Being happy is my energy, to shine my own light
Just sing, when you wish to sing and sing it loudly, do not be afraid of being prevented by the wind and the rain

Being happy is my energy to shine my own light
Every expectant look is the witness of my growth
I am singing, and singing it loudly

Being happy is my energy, to shine my own light
Just sing, when you wish to sing and sing it loudly, do not be afraid of being prevented by the wind and the rain
Being happy is my energy, to shine my own light
Every expectant look is the witness of my growth
I am singing, singing it loudly

从一开始就知道 I knew from the very beginning

Standing alone at the street of last year
Slightly attached to that air
Stayed up in that empty room all night
Wishing to hold the feeling of being with you

Just want to ask who you've been thinking of all the time
While who shed tears for you
I have said I’m willing to be deceive by you
So don’t break my heart again

You said love is but a flash
Why my heart is being trapped
The pledge does not mean forever

I knew from the very beginning
You may not be able to accompany me till the end
You are like the knife piercing into the memory
I 'm covered with wounds but I still cannot put a full-stop to it

I knew from the very beginning
A touching love story always ends early
Why I have never thought
I am not the main character in the story

HAPPY HOUR

This is a stage with free admission
Unhappy people, lift up your hands now
Under the hot sun, we are not yet very HIGH
Throw a coin and make a decision, do quickly and don’t stand all dazzled
You are a conservative or a sensitive
Whichever, Come with me and sell at the happy counter
Every heart in this city all relies on
This feeling
Be fast if you want to buy happiness
Throw out the worries from your pocket
Now and future
The happiness is requested as master/lord

Because of loneliness there is love
There should not be depressed people/ Depressed people shouldn't be
Good bye to all the gloom
Depression are recently suppressed/suspended

Left hand holds the light stick, feeling happy
Right hand extends to the sky, shouting out loud
Lend me you hands and follow the beats
Swing freely/wildly and get high

You are a conservative or a sensitive
Whichever, Come with me and trade at the happy counter
Every heart in this city all relies on

The future must follow the feeling, free, free, free
Expecting/Anticipating, love comes uninvited,
Every change is my will

下雨 (Raining)

Unexpectedly I remember
Once it was the same weather
The rain, the city and the same feeling
Thought it has long been forgotten
We once had a promise
Reminiscing the rainy season
We breathed the same air
Can't believe, I had such a courage
Can't believe, met again in the bad weather like this
Not certain, at that moment we were really moved
Not once suspected, this kind of promise

All of a sudden it rains heavily
Making us return to where we were
The sky
And the mood in the rain
All of a sudden it rains heavily
Making us return to where we were
Let the time
Stop the heart in this rainy day

All of a sudden it rains heavily
Making us return to where we were
Let the time
Stop the feelings in the rainy day
