Rainbow by Jay Chou

Rainbow (Cai Hong) is one of the tracks available in On the Run album by Jay Chou. Also, the parts of this song gently decorated some scenes in Jay Chou’s Secret movie.

The guitar strings plucking in this Rainbow is very attracting that I deeply crushed on. I thought it was a chain of sentimental-romantic lyric, but as I reveal the meaning, the song directly drags my mood into its temperature. Well, although the lyric tell an embarrassed and regretful expression, yet I still feel that this one is quite touchy. Is this song soooo me?


I guess the rainbow told in this song performs only one color: it is blue (yeah I know it's not a proper time to joke, peace out!)

*the blue fonts are originally not included in the literary translation of the lyric but merely belong to my interpretation. The hanyu pinyin lyrics could be viewed on my comment section. the image was retrieved from this URL*


Rainbow

Where is the rainbow, could you please tell me?

Could you give my wish back to me?

Why is the sky still so quiet?

The clouds accumulate above me


Do you have a face mask to give?

It is because of my too much talk, now it will never be true

Time is probably a remedy

But it is also the poison I'm now taking in


* Without seeing your smile, how can I fall asleep?

Your shadow is so close yet I cannot hug you

Without the earth, the sunshine is still be able to rise

So although there isn’t any reason, I will continue to leave alone


** You want to leave; I know it is simple for you

You said trust was the problem between us

If we separate, then would you please not to remove my love?

In the end I will pretend that I finally understand

Cai Hong by Jay Chou

Na li you cai hong gao su wo

Neng bu neng ba wo de yuan wang huan gei wo

Wei shen me tian zhe me an jing

Suo you de yun dou pao dao wo zhe li

You mei you kou zhao yi ge gei wo

Shi huai shuo le tai duo jiu cheng zhen bu liao

Ye xu shi jian shi yi zhong jie yao

Ye shi wo xian zai zheng fu xia de du yao

Kan bu jian ni de xiao wo zen me shui de zhao

Ni de shen ying zhe me jing wo que bao bu dao

Mei you di qiu tai yang hai shi hui rao

Mei you li you wo ye neng zi ji zou

Ni yao li kai wo zhi dao hen jian dan

Ni shuo yi lai shi wo men de zu ai

Jiu suan fang kai dan neng bu neng bie mo shuo wo de ai

Dang zuo wo zui hou cai ming bai


Rap:
Kan bu jian ni de xiao wo zen me shui de zhao

Ni de shen ying zhe me jing wo que bao bu dao

Mei you di qiu tai yang hai shi hui rao hui rao

Mei you li you wo ye neng zi ji zou

Shi huai shuo le tai duo jiu cheng zhen bu liao

Ye xu shi jian shi yi zhong jie yao jie yao

Ye shi wo xian zai zheng fu xia de du yao
