Of all designs for you to choose between

飞的高高越远越好
fei de gao gao yue yuan yue hao
剪断了线它就死掉
jian duan le xian ta jiu si diao
寿命短短高兴就好
shou ming duan duan gao xing jiu hao
喜欢就好没大不了
xi huan jiu hao mei da bu liao
越变越小越来越小
yue bian yue xiao yue lai yue xiao
快要死掉也很骄傲
kuai yao si diao ye hen jiao ao

Flying very high, the farther the better
When the string is cut it dies
Such a brief life, as long as it's happy
As long as it likes it, it's not a big deal
As it changes, with time, it becomes smaller
It's near death but still very proud



你不想说就别再说
ni bu xiang shuo jiu bie zai shuo
我不想听不想再听
wo bu xiang ting bu xiang zai ting
就把一切誓言当作
jiu ba yi qie shi yan dang zuo
汽球一般随它而去
qi qiu yi ban sui ta er qu
我不在意不会在意
wo bu zai yi bu hui zai yi
放它而去随它而去
fang ta er qu sui ta er qu
-
You don't want to speak, so don't speak anymore
I don't want to hear it, to hear it anymore
Just treat all the promises
As though they are balloons, let them go as they will
I don't mind, I will not mind
Release them, let them go as they will



气球 飘进云里
qi qiu / piao jin yun li
飘进风里 结束生命
piao jin feng li / jie shu sheng ming
气球 飘进爱里
qi qiu / piao jin ai li
飘进心里 慢慢死去
piao jin xin li / man man si qu

Balloons, float into the clouds
Float into the wind, where they end their lives
Balloons, float into love
Float into the heart, where they slowly die
