It Rains All Night

Translation/pinyin/lyrics by

It Rains All Night

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

The display window below the street lights
Possesses a kind of desolate warmth
Breathing onto the glass
And drawing your face on it

I drive the car aimlessly around the corner
I don't know where I have to go
The tiled display screens downtown
In the end who is watching them

The shadow of the poplar
Is stretched
Like how my thoughts of you never end
It turns out I've never gotten used to
You not being by my side anymore

The iron gates on the streets have been pulled down
All that's left is the neon lights flashing at the corner
In the alleys of this city
It rains all night

You hold up a small oil-paper umbrella
Sighing that fate is too mild and indirect
The rain falls down, it becomes foggy
Where are the ends of the earth I ask

At midnight, the remnant flute sound
Secretly passes through the window
In front of the candlestick, I'm still thinking
A small sampan
Row oh row
A small oil-paper umbrella
It keeps out the rain and the moonlight
