You Have to Believe This Isn’t the Last Day

This is a translation of the song by Hua Chenyu , 《你要相信这不是最后一天》written for those affected by the coronavirus, especially those from Hubei where he hails from.

Believe and keep on fighting! 一起加油!

Sunset is so beautiful
Light from the setting sun shines on the white wall
At this moment tears unexpectedly fall
My smile freezes on my face as memories scatter

Yesterday doesn’t matter anymore
The future is distant and a lot is left unsaid
I know you are at a loss
But you have to reconcile with yourself

Because you have to believe
Stop your doubting
You might leave some regrets
But you experience the ups and downs
And yield a pleasant surprise in the crack on the wall

Wishes and clocks nestle against each other
A gentle breeze embraces me and I feel the warmth

Yesterday doesn’t matter anymore
The future is distant and a lot is left unsaid
I know you are at a loss
But you have to reconcile with yourself

Because you have to believe
Stop your doubting
You might leave some regrets
But you experience the ups and downs
And yield a pleasant surprise in the crack on the wall

Oh because you have to believe
For the sake of a better reunion
You are given distance and time apart
That day is worth waiting for
That day will be as bountiful as a sea of stars

Soliloquies:

People from all walks of life: Good morning! Good day!

Yuan Hong: Boss! One hot dry noodle please!
Hot dry noodle is a famous dish from Wuhan, Yuan Hong’s hometown.

Zhang Xinyi: Girl, we’re short of one for mahjong! Hurry over!

He Jiong: The noodle place downstairs is open! Go, go, go. Let’s grab some noodles.

Huang Bo: Let’s go to the Qianhaiyan’er seaside for another dip tomorrow!
It’s a famous seaside in Qingdao, where Huang Bo is from.

Shen Teng: Where are you, bro? Where have you been? We’re all waiting for you. Three glasses on you for being late!

Zhao Wei: The willow trees long Mirror Lake are starting to turn green. I want to go with you to bask in the sunshine at Mirror lake and admire the willow trees.
Mirror Lake is in Wuhu, Zhao Wei’s hometown.

Zhang Yishan: Get well soon, brother.

Tiger Hu Yanbin: You stay well.

Song Dandan: Son, Mum baked a lamb zucchini pie and some millet gruel. We’ll eat when you get back.

Yang Zi: I miss you so much.

Original lyrics in Chinese:

黄昏的天空 很美
斜阳下的光亮 映在白墙
竟然就这样 流泪
微笑僵在脸上 回忆散落

已不重要 昨天
未来还很远 太多话梅兑现
我知道你很纠结
但总要学着自我和解

Because you have to believe
不要再怀疑
或许 留下遗憾
也算经历了潮起潮落
惊喜会在裂缝中结果

心愿和时钟 依偎
微风拥抱着我 感受温柔

已不重要 昨天
未来还很远 太多话梅兑现
我知道你很纠结
但总要学着自我和解

Because you have to believe
不要再怀疑
或许 留下遗憾
也算经历了潮起潮落
惊喜会在裂缝中结果

Oh because you have to believe
只为了更好遇见
才赠矛了距离和时间
那一天 值得期待
那一天 满载星海
