晚秋 Late Autumn (劉紫玲 Liu Ziling)
Chinese singer Liu Ziling published her first album in 2006. She is well known for her extremely sweet, mellow voice.
The lyrics and my English translation are as follows:
In this late autumn with falling and withering maple leaves
Only now I know that you are not my life partner
Suddenly I looked back
And I could only see reluctant smiles
So many past events are floating and scattering in the wind
Why were we in love and yet destined to break up?
How can I believe that was a dream?
It's hard to hold on to our love if it's gone
Raising my head to look at the sky
I recalled that you said you would love me forever
With so much love and sorrow hidden in my heart
I want to hold your hand again
To feel warm in this late autumn after you left
Now we can only meet each other in dreams
While I see you're going far away
My tears are streaming down in my heart
For you, I have given all I have
