Jia Jia — Destiny (家家 — 命運) Song translation

So purpletarocandy and I kept going with the song translations (though I will admit we bickered as to which song to next translate :D)

Here is Jia Jia’s Destiny (家家 — 命運) , one of the gorgeous OSTs from Lan Ling Wang (Prince of Lan Ling)

Lyrics/translations:

命運(家家)
Mìngyùn(jiā jiā)
Fate/Destiny

能不能矇上眼睛就可以不傷心
Néngbùnéng méng shàng yǎnjīng jiù kěyǐ bù shāngxīn
If I cover my eyes, then can I stop the sorrow?

能不能脫下面具還可以很狠心
Néngbùnéng tuō xià miànjù hái kěyǐ hěn hěnxīn
Would you still be ruthless if you take off your mask?

如果不是遇見你我不可能相信
Rúguǒbùshì yùjiàn nǐ wǒ bù kěnéng xiāngxìn
If I had not meet you, I would have never believed

生命有一種一定一定要愛下去
Shēngmìngyǒu yīzhǒng yīdìng yīdìng yào ài xiàqù
that in life the one certainty is love

愛可以相知相許相依為命
Àikěyǐ xiāngzhī xiāng xǔ xiāngyīwéimìng
Love let us share our heart and soul, leaning on each other for existence

卻聽天由命
Quètīngtiānyóumìng
Yetwe’re still resigned to our fate

愛可以心有靈犀動魄驚心
Àikěyǐ xīnyǒulíngxī dòng pò jīng xīn
Love lets our hearts link as one, stirring our souls.

卻難以抗拒流星的宿命
Quènányǐ kàngjù liúxīng de sùmìng
But it’s impossible to defy our destiny, doomed like a falling star

我屬於你的注定
Wǒshǔyú nǐ de zhùdìng
I am part of your destiny

不屬於我的命運
Bùshǔyú wǒ de mìngyùn
(I) no longer control my own fate

不要命不要清醒
Bùyàomìng bùyào qīngxǐng
(I) don’t care about living, (I) don’t want to wake up

還有夢能緊緊抱著你
Háiyǒu mèng néng jǐn jǐn bàozhe nǐ
because in my dreams I can still hold you tightly

愛寫出我的詩經
Àixiě chū wǒ de shījīng
Love wrote the poetry of my life

算不出我的命運
Suànbù chū wǒ de mìngyùn
yet it could not foretell my fate

你給我的命下一輩子 再還你
Nǐgěi wǒ de mìng xià yībèizi zài huánnǐ
The life you have given me, I will return it in the next life time
(implying that they’ll meet again in the next life)

如果能如影隨形誰願意一意孤行
Rúguǒnéng rúyǐngsuíxíng shuí yuànyì yīyìgūxíng
If we could be always together, who would want to walk alone

如果能變成螞蟻我願意趨近於零
Rúguǒnéng biànchéng mǎyǐ wǒ yuànyì qū jìn yú líng
If I were an ant, I would sacrifice my insignificant life for you

冥冥中明明是你明明還不死心
Míngmíngzhōng míngmíng shì nǐ míng míng hái bùsǐ xīn
It was destined to be you, it is so obvious I still can’t let go

生命是一個謎語因為你而懸疑
Shēngmìngshì yīgè míyǔ yīnwèi nǐ ér xuányí
Life is such a riddle, it is full of mysterybecause of you

最初的一心一意深信不疑 不能沒有你
Zuìchūde yīxīnyīyì shēnxìn bù yí bùnéng méiyǒu nǐ
Originally I wholeheartedly believed that I couldn’tlive without you

最後的情非得已身不由己
Zuìhòude qíng fēiděi yǐ shēn bù yóujǐ
In the end I had no choice but to leave you.

當物換星移今夕是何夕
Dāngwùhuànxīngyí jīnxī shì hé xī
When the years have passed, would you still remember (me)?

我屬於你的注定
Wǒshǔyú nǐ de zhùdìng
I am part of your destiny

不屬於我的命運
Bùshǔyú wǒ de mìngyùn
(I) no longer control my own fate

不要命不要清醒
Bùyàomìng bùyào qīngxǐng
(I) don’t care about living, (I) don’t want to wake up

還有夢能緊緊抱著你
Háiyǒu mèng néng jǐn jǐn bàozhe nǐ
because in my dreams I can still hold you tightly

愛寫出我的詩經
Àixiě chū wǒ de shījīng
Love wrote the poetry of my life

算不出我的命運
Suànbù chū wǒ de mìngyùn
yet it could not foretell my fate

你給我的命下一輩子 再還你
Nǐgěi wǒ de mìng xià yībèizi zài huánnǐ
The life you have given me, I will return it in the next life time
(implying that they’ll meet again in the next life)

我屬於你的注定
Wǒshǔyú nǐ de zhùdìng
I am part of your destiny

不屬於我的命運
Bùshǔyú wǒ de mìngyùn
(I) no longer control my own fate

不要命不離不棄
Bùyàomìng bù lì bù qì
(I)don’tcare to live, I’ll always be there for you

暴風雨裡靜靜的運行
Bàofēngyǔlǐ jìng jìng de yùnxíng
In the midst of the storm, terrible things are quietly happening

愛寫出我的詩經
Àixiě chū wǒ de shījīng
Love wrote the poetry of my life

算不出我的命運
Suànbù chū wǒ de mìngyùn
yet it could not foretell my fate

你借我的命還給天地 還給你
Nǐjiè wǒ de mìng huángěi tiāndì huángěi nǐ
The life you lent me, I will return to the universe, and return to you.

還給你
huángěi nǐ
I’m giving it back to you…
