Handong ‘曙光 (First Light of Dawn)’ Lyrics Translation

越是飞得高
The higher you soar
越需要冷静思考
The more cool-headed you must be

越走得远 越抓得牢
The more successful you are, the tighter you hold on
越害怕被忘掉
Afraid of being forgotten

从何时开始
Since when
笑容渐渐消失掉
Have our smiles slowly faded?

无垠星辰 骇浪惊涛
The boundless stars and turbulent waves
我竟无处可逃
Yet, I have nowhere to go

徘徊迷路的游子
Like a lost child I wandered
斑驳路灯下迷失
Aimlessly under the multi-coloured street lights

AH 黑夜拉长影子
AH The night makes the shadows look longer
磨平棱角的样子
After I’ve polished my jagged edges

我希望你也会知
I want you to know that “me” too
给我力量坚持
Give me the strength to go on

我总会有 一些顿悟
Often when I’m hit by sudden realizations
便如释重负
I would feel relieved

不认输也不能输
I won’t give up, I can’t give up

在夹缝中 进退维谷
I’m torn, caught between the rock and a hard place
拥挤的命途
Life’s a rat race

天知道我多辛苦
God knows how much I’ve been through
我义无反顾 拥抱孤独
Without hesitation, I embrace solitude

越表现在乎
The more you care
未来越看不清楚
The more blurry the future seems

执着胜负 稀里糊涂
So fixated on winning, without even knowing why
反而越加痛苦
Leads to more misery instead

充满了迷雾
It’s full of mist
很多人脚下的路
The paths underneath our feet

通往哪里 连自己都
Where it leads to, even I
不明白不清楚
Do not know nor understand

谁都会害怕一次
Everyone will be afraid once
无法确信的未知
Of the unforeseeable future 

AH 理想中的样子
AH The ideal “me”
妥协是经常的事
Compromising has become a habit

忍耐让自己透支
Burnt out from putting up with everything
只等一个名字
All that just waiting for a name

我总会有 一些顿悟
Often when I’m hit by sudden realizations
便如释重负
I would feel relieved

不认输也不能输
I won’t give up, I can’t give up

在夹缝中 进退维谷
I’m torn, caught between the rock and a hard place
拥挤的命途
Life’s a rat race

天知道我多辛苦
God knows how much I’ve been through
我义无反顾 拥抱孤独
Without hesitation, I embrace solitude

路的尽头 一束光芒
At the end of the road, a beam of light
照进我心房
Shines into my heart

不后悔也不投降
Don’t have regrets and never give up

不管多累 不管多忙
No matter how tired, no matter how busy
卸下的伪装
After we shed our disguises

其实你我都一样
We are all the same
我们的倔强 就像曙光
We persevere, just like the first light of dawn
