I still remember how we met on that spring day it was warm and we both were a bit more younger

It was love at first sight and i knew that i wanted you and you were slowly getting the idea

But now it’s taken me this long to find out that were both not made for one another

And that were both split i feel kind of empty inside but i know that it’s for the best

Missing someone is like a feeling of nostalgia and longing for that memory

Happiness soon became the thing i strive for and a choice made by me not you

So i’m going to have to let go of the past and move on with my life.

Inspired By The Song “檸檬草的味道” By Jolin Tsai

Lyrics and translation:

他們猜我們後來有沒有再見
Ta men cai wo men hou lai you mei you zai jian
They are guessing if we ever meet again

離席了才會曉得懷念
Li xi le cai hui xiao de huai nian
Only learning how to reminisce after parting

突然我記起你的臉
Tu ran wo ji qi ni de lian
Suddenly, I recall your face

那觸動依然像昨天
Na chu dong yi ran xiang zuo tian
The emotions stirred like yesterday

對自己我終於也誠實了一點
Dui zi ji wo zhong yu ye cheng shi le yi dian
I am finally a little more honest to myself

是不是回憶就是淡淡檸檬草
Shi bu shi hui yi jiu shi dan dan ning meng cao
Maybe memories resemble the light scent of lemongrass

心酸裡又有芳香的味道
Xin suan li you you fang xiang de wei dao
A fragrance emits from the heartaches

曾以為你是全世界
Ceng yi wei ni shi quan shi jie
I used to believe you are my whole world

但那天已經好遙遠
Dan na tian yi jing hao yao yuan
But those days are now very distant

繞一圈
Rao yi quan
Make a turn

我才發現我有更遠地平線
Wo cai fa xian wo you geng yuan di ping xian
And I realised I have further horizons

我們都沒錯 只是不適合
Wo men dou mei cuo zhi shi bu shi he
We are both not at fault, just not suitable

我要的 我現在才懂得
Wo yao de wo xian zai cai dong de
I finally understood what I want

快樂是我的 不是你給的
Kuai le shi wo de bu shi ni gei de
Happiness is mine, not given by you

寂寞要自己負責
Ji mo yao zi ji fu ze
Loneliness is my responsibility

畢竟用盡了力氣也未必如願
Bi jing yong jin le li qi ye wei bi ru yuan
After all, dreams might not come true after energies are exhausted

總是要過去以後才了解
Zong shi yao guo qu yi hou cai liao jie
Always failing to understand till things have gone

突然我記起你的臉
Tu ran wo ji qi ni de lian
Suddenly, I recall your face

愛不愛不過一念之間
Ai bu ai bu guo yi nian zhi jian
To love or not is just a difference in thoughts

繞一圈
Rao yi quan
Make a turn

今天的我能和昨天面對面
Jin tian de wo neng he zuo tian mian dui mian
Today, I am able to face myself from yesterday

我們都沒錯 只是不適合
Wo men dou mei cuo zhi shi bu shi he
We are both not at fault, just not suitable

親愛的 我當時不懂得
Qin ai de wo dang shi bu dong de
My Dear, I didn’t understand back then

選擇是我的 不是你給的
Xuan ze shi wo de bu shi ni gei de
The choice is mine, not given by you

明天自己負責
Ming tian zi ji fu ze
The future is my responsibility

給昨天的我一個擁抱
Gei zuo tian de wo yi ge yong bao
Give myself from yesterday a hug

曾經她不知如何是好
Ceng jing ta bu zhi ru he shi hao
She used to be helpless

若我們再見我會微笑
Ruo wo men zai jian wo hui wei xiao
If we meet again, I will give you a smile

謝謝你
Xie xie ni
Thank you

謝謝你
Xie xie ni
Thank you

我嚐過 愛的好
Wo chang guo ai de hao
I have experienced the best of love

我們都沒錯 只是不適合
Wo men dou mei cuo zhi shi bu shi he
We are both not at fault, just not suitable

我要的 我現在才懂得
Wo yao de wo xian zai cai dong de
I finally understood what I want

快樂是我的 不是你給的
Kuai le shi wo de bu shi ni gei de
Happiness is mine, not given by you

寂寞要自己負責
Ji mo yao zi ji fu ze
Loneliness is my responsibility

我要的 我現在才懂得
Wo yao de wo xian zai cai dong de
I finally understood what I want

選擇是我的 不是你給的
Xuan ze shi wo de bu shi ni gei de
The choice is mine, not given by you

幸福要自己負責
Xing fu yao zi ji fu ze
My happiness is my responsibility

錯過的
Cuo guo de
For those you missed

請你把握
Qing ni ba wo
Please cherish it
