Excuse (Jie Kou)

I hardly listen to Chinese songs, and I know it’s very untraditional of me, but once in a while, a great song comes by and this is one of them. And this is possibly the first Chinese song that I have cried over. For all it’s worth, I hope you enjoy it in my sorrow. I pray that the one whom this song is dedicated to knows it in her heart.

藉口 | Jie Kou | Excuse
Lyrics/Music: Jay Chou

翻著我們的照片 想念若隱若現
fan zhe wo men de zhao pian / xiang nian ruo yin ruo xian
Flipping through our photographs, thoughts of [you] are visible yet invisible

去年的冬天 我們笑得很甜
qu nian de dong tian / wo men xiao de hen tian
Last year’s winter, we laughed very sweetly

看著妳哭泣的臉, 對著我說再見
kan zhe ni ku qi de lian / dui zhe wo shuo zai jian
Watching your tearstained face, telling me goodbye

來不及聽見 妳已走得很遠
lai bu ji ting jian / ni yi zou de hen yuan
[I] have yet to hear it when you’ve already walked so far

也許妳已經放棄我 也許已經很難回頭
ye xu ni yi jing fang qi wo / ye su yi jing hen nan hui tou
Perhaps you have already given up on me, perhaps it is already very difficult to turn back

我知道是自己錯過 請再給我一個理由說妳不愛我
wo zhi dao shi zi ji cuo guo / qing zai gei wo yi ge li you shuo ni bu ai wo
I know it’s all my fault, please give me another reason, say you don’t love me

就算是我不懂 能不能原諒我
jiu suan shi wo bu dong / neng bu neng yuan liang wo
Even if I don’t understand, can [you] forgive me?

請不要把分手當作妳的請求
qing bu yao ba fen shou dang zuo ni de qing qiu
Please don’t use parting as your request

我知道堅持要走 是妳受傷的藉口
wo zhi dao jian chi yao zou / shi ni shou shang de jie kou
I know wanting to go is your wound’s excuse

請妳回頭 我會陪妳一直走到最後
qing ni hui tou / wo hui pei ni yi zhi zou dao zui hou
[Can] you please turn back, I will accompany you until the very end

就算沒有結果 我也能夠承受
jiu suan mei you jie guo / wo ye neng go cheng shou
Even if there is no conclusion, I can still endure

我知道妳的痛 是我給的承諾
wo zhi dao ni de tong / shi wo gei de cheng nuo
I know your pain is the promise I gave

妳說給過我縱容 沉默是因為包容
ni shuo gei guo wo zong rong / chen mo shi yin wei bao rong
You said [you] gave me tolerance, and silence was because of acceptance

如果要走 請妳記得我 
ru guo yao zou / qing ni ji de wo
If [you] want to go, please remember me

Repeat from top

如果難過 請妳忘了我
ru guo nan guo / qing ni wang le wo
if [you] feel sad, please forget me

I must play this on my sax!
