lyrics

我心爱的女人在山上为人画着
The woman of my heart is painting a portrait on a mountain top
画着一个快要死去的老鬼
She paints an old ghost on his death bed
那个老鬼年轻像我可怕的从前啊
That old ghost looks young like my frightening past
手里握着我为那女人捡的玫瑰
In his hand he holds the rose I picked for that girl
哎呀
Oh yeah
我那女人画着画着快要枯萎
That woman of mine paints and paints until she’s about to wither
那个老鬼留下了满山的遗憾呐
That old ghost dwells in immense regret over her
为啥他在死前一直吻着花的蕊
I heard that up to his death he was smelling flower pistils
为啥我那可怜的女人没有张开嘴
But that pitiful woman of mine never opened her mouth
我努力地攻击着花的
I’m vigorously assaulting the flower’s
蕊呀
Pistil
玫瑰呢呢喃喃说
The rose hums that it’s
不对
Not the right spot
我努力地攻击着花的
I’m vigorously assaulting the flower’s
蕊呀
Pistil
可我怎么用嘴去唱出
Oh how could this mouth of mine herald this
二手玫瑰
Second Hand Rose
好花红那个红又艳呐
Best flower red, it’s red and gorgeous
谁不愿那个骗她入胸怀呀
Who doesn’t want to deceive her into his arms
一层层剥下去让嫩的露出来呀
Stripping layer after layer revealing the tender parts
你说那情不变花也不会败呀
Yet saying if love doesn’t change, flowers won't perish either
为啥我那女人为啥非要枯萎
You say that woman of mine why did she have to wither?
那个老鬼为啥要留下了遗憾呐
And that old ghost why did he dwell in regrets?
为啥他在死前一直吻着花的蕊
Why did he up to his death smell flower pistils?
为啥我那可怜的女人没有张开嘴
Why did that pitiful woman of mine never open her mouth?
我努力地攻击着花的蕊呀
I’m vigorously assaulting the flower’s pistil
蕊呀
Pistil
玫瑰呢呢喃喃说位置不对
The rose hums that it’s not the right spot
不对
Not right
我努力地攻击着花的蕊呀
I’m vigorously assaulting the flower’s pistil
蕊呀
Pistil
可我怎么用嘴去唱出
Oh how could this mouth of mine herald this
二手玫瑰
Second Hand Rose
好花红
Good flower red
二手玫瑰
Second Hand Rose
好花红
Good flower red
二手玫瑰
Second Hand Rose

about

Second Hand Rose Beijing, China

Everything seems to be second hand in China. Marx, Weibo, rock music, even the women. Searching through the rumble, an old broken shoe makes us laugh, jump with joy.
