海鸣威
Hai ming wei

你的承诺
Ni de cheng nuo
Your promise

乌云遮蔽了天空
wu1 yun2 zhe1 bi4 liao5 tian1 kong1
Dark clouds block the sky

窗外又是阴雨时候
chuang1 wai4 you4 shi4 yin1 yu3 shi2 hou4
Outside of the window, it is again the time of cloudy rains

伞下的恋人中
san3 xia4 de5 lian4 ren2 zhong1
Among the lovers under the umbrella

不再有你我手牵手
bu2 zai4 you3 ni3 wo3 shou3 qian1 shou3
There is no (scene of) our holding hands anymore

一切过了太久
yi2 qie4 guo4 liao5 tai4 jiu3
Everything has passed too long ago

我们的十字路口
wo3 men1 de5 shi2 zi4 lu4 kou3
Our character 十 (ten) intersection

下一站是谁在等候
xia4 yi2 zhan4 shi4 shui2 zai4 deng3 hou4
Who will be waiting at the next stop

你我的方向盘却向着
ni3 wo3 de5 fang1 xiang4 pan2 que4 xiang4 zhe5
Our steering wheels, however, point toward

相反的彼岸
xiang1 fan3 de5 bi3 an4
The other shores of the opposite

终点还是分开
zhong1 dian3 huan2 shi4 fen1 kai1
At the end point, we nevertheless had to part

告别你我离开之后
gao4 bie2 ni3 wo3 li2 kai1 zhi1 hou4
Saying farewell to you, after I left

这回忆可以保留
zhe4 hui2 yi4 ke3 yi3 bao3 liu2
This memory will be able to be preserved

当初那美好的感动
dang1 chu1 na4 mei3 hao3 de5 gan3 dong4
At that time that beautiful heart felt feeling

你说你记住了
ni3 shuo1 ni3 ji4 zhu4 liao5
You said you memorized it

不为彼此难过
bu2 wei4 bi3 ci3 nan2 guo4
We are not going to feel sad for each other

过各自的生活
guo4 ge4 zi4 de5 sheng1 huo2
Live our own separate life

oh baby

你答应我的我都记得
ni3 da1 ying4 wo3 de5 wo3 du1 ji4 de5
What you promised me I remember them all

但是你却忘了你的承诺
dan4 shi4 ni3 que4 wang4 liao5 ni3 de5 cheng2 nuo4
However, yet you forgot your own promise

不是说好彼此都不再联络
bu2 shi4 shuo1 hao3 bi3 ci3 du1 bu2 zai4 lian2 luo4
Did not we agree that we are not going to contact each other

谁都别再犯错
shui2 du1 bie2 zai4 fan4 cuo4
We are not going to make mistakes again

是我的固执让你难过
shi4 wo3 de5 gu4 zhi2 rang4 ni3 nan2 guo4
It is my stubbornness that made you sad

但是分手却也无法选择
dan4 shi4 fen1 shou3 que4 ye3 wu2 fa3 xuan3 ze2
But, breaking up, yet also is unable to choose

我走了以后
wo3 zou3 liao5 yi3 hou4
After I am gone

你要好好生活
ni3 yao4 hao3 hao3 sheng1 huo5
You have to live well

不要想我 也别再哭了
bu2 yao4 xiang3 wo3 ye3 bie2 zai4 ku1 liao5
Don’t miss me, also don’t cry anymore

我们的十字路口

Promises are like babies: easy to make, hard to deliver. ~Author Unknown

Promises are the uniquely human way of ordering the future, making it predictable and reliable to the extent that this is humanly possible. ~Hannah Arendt

Half the promises people say were never kept, were never made. ~Edgar Watson Howe

We promise according to our hopes, and perform according to our fears. ~Francois duc de la Rochefoucauld

Oaths are but words, and words but wind. ~Samuel Butler

To promise not to do a thing is the surest way in the world to make a body want to go and do that very thing. ~Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 1876

It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, but the man the oath. ~Aeschylus

The best way to keep one’s word is not to give it. ~Napoleon Bonaparte

When a man takes an oath… he’s holding his own self in his own hands. Like water. And if he opens his fingers then – he needn’t hope to find himself again. ~Robert Bolt

Never take a solemn oath. People think you mean it. ~Norman Douglas

Not the maker of plans and promises, but rather the one who offers faithful service in small matters. This is the person who is most likely to achieve what is good and lasting. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

All promise outruns performance. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thou ought to be nice, even to superstition, in keeping thy promises, and therefore equally cautious in making them. ~Thomas Fuller

Promises are like crying babies in a theater, they should be carried out at once. ~Norman Vincent Peale

He loses his thanks who promises and delays. ~Proverb

Promise is most given when the least is said. ~George Chapman

Eggs and oaths are easily broken. ~Danish Proverb

Nothing weights lighter than a promise. ~German Proverb

A promise made is a debt unpaid. ~Robert Service

Promises and pie crusts are made to be broken. ~Jonathan Swift
