Casualties Of Stopping War

Composer: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)
Lyricist: Vincent Fang (方文山) (方文山)

Light like paper
Scattering down on the place
In the applause gradually coming to a rest, it's in a great rush
She is singing passing it on
The unbearable wound
Foot was originally on the stage
Perform the final session
And the entire village people are on the seats
Quietly watching
How time deserts this theatre
The flames of war defile
Her tears
Who is in the wind?
Quarrelling eating sweets
The camera shot of this story at the start, dust has already obstructed the sunshine

Fear is engraved on the children's faces
Wheat fields already fall towards the direction the tank passed
The shape of the dandelion
Is scattering
It is hopelessly
She only sings
Only thinks
This song of casualties of
Stopping war
The wicked night burns the candlelight
End the chaos caused by war at daybreak
Song of casualties spread thousands of miles
Hometown usual famine
Naivety is on this road
Staggering forward
She is slashed by Pampas grass

The hope in the children's eyes
What form is it?
Is it waking up and having bread as breakfast?
And then drink a bowl of hot soup
The farmer whose land and village is burnt down
Finally picks up a gun
Yet she slowly gets used to giving up resistance
The hope in the children's eyes
What form is it?
Is it having a swing to swing on in the courtyard?
Having sweets in the pocket
The light of the bayonet is sharpened by hatred
Barbarous in a distant place
Yet she is smiling not knowing to be nervous and excited
