Lyric

Writing calligraphy in Orchid Pavilion /
Running style, natural and smooth /
Opening the door in the moonlight /
My love is echoed in your gentle steps /
Love is all to me / Even after a thousand years the tablet is easily copied /
But there’s no reproducing your beauty /
The original was stolen away /
Who will accept my heart? /
Playing the herdsman’s flute /
All the wine and food /
The setting sun, rosy like your shyness /
Copies are easy to write /
But the taste of the ink still lingers /
It’s something we still share /
Who does the vermilion ink describe? /
It’s not about romance, I just wrote this prologue to get your reply /
Then I hung up my brush and stood by the sea watching the waves /
How can I write this feeling down? /
I leave the paper blank /
I have everything but you /
Time flies and beauty vanishes /
You glance back with a shy smile /
Are you angry with the man who made you sigh? /
In your boudoir there lingers the smell of rouge /
He looked back and saw the tears in your eyes /
The sleepless nights you spent with the solitary moon and mottled memories /
The troubles you pour into every stitch of your embroidery /
Who would you blame, as the flower blames the butterfly? /
It’s not about romance, I just wrote this prologue to get your reply /
Then I hung up my brush and stood by the sea watching the waves / How can I write this feeling down? /
I leave the paper blank /
I have everything but you /
It’s not about romance, I just wrote this prologue to get your reply /
I have no fear of rumours and suspicion /
The sound of the raindrops on the plantain leaves announces another rainy night /
I am here waiting for the spring thunder to tell of your love
