Painted Heart, 画心
Painted Heart, or 画心, is the theme song for the long-awaited comeback movie for Vicki Zhao, Painted Skin. Well, here’s a version without all the ‘lalala’, because I love you all. This one is the official movie version, being only 4min29sec or so. The real one is 7min02sec, dl it here.
More of that ghost + human = tragedy thing. I would be overjoyed, but I have had it up to here with tragedies.
Original Chinese lyrics and translation below:
看着你 抱着我 目光似(比)月色寂寞
(Theme song of movie “Painted Skin”)
Music: some Japanese dude.
Lyrics: Chen Shaoqi
Artist: Jane Zhang
Unable to see through your wandering spirit,
Unfathomable, the colour of your pupils
A passing wind, a waking dream
Like life, love remains undefined
Your heart, what confuses it so?
The outline of your body disappears into the night
I watch the cherry blossoms, waiting to see their blooms
I watch you, embracing me, your eyes lonelier than the moonlight
And I let you seek happiness in someone else’s arms
Loving you, untouchable like a heartbeat
Painting you, I cannot paint your skeleton
Remembering your expression, my reason to persist in waiting for you
You are mine, a song that I will never finish singing
*(My heart, only willing to be cut for you)
* This line isn’t actually sung in the versions here, but it is in the 7 min long version.
Enjoy, my lovelies,
