Zai na yaoyuan de guxiang
In that far distant land I call home
Wo shiluo liao yi ge gulao de meng
I lost the ancient dream
Yi ge youshang de meng
A sorrowful dream
Zai na yangyu wo de difang
In that place that raised me
Wo fenbian buliao muse he chenguang
I cannot discern the growing shadows of dusk and (first light) the first faint rays of the morning sun
Wo yanjuanliao chenmo he sixiang
I’ve wearied in the silence and searching
Feng nanchui you zhuanxiang beifang
Wind blows south and turns again north
Jianghe ben hai, hai que bu zhang
River flows to the sea, yet the sea does not rise
Wo xin manliao choucheng
My heart is filled with melancholy
Yu lai you shi qing bu jiuchang
The rains come, clear skies will follow soon
Fuzu tianbuman linghun de kewang
Even fortune and good blessings cannot quench the soul’s thirst
Zhihui dangbukai yongsheng de shuangjiang
Wisdom cannot relieve us our eternal lot
Mitu de gaoyang
I am a lost lamb
Shei neng ying wo zouchu mimang
Who will lead me from this haze?
Nar you wo chongsheng de xiwang
What will bring me hope again?
O, muyangren ah.
Ni zai hefang?
Where are you?
