Time was slower in the past

Time was slower in the past,
Carriage, horse, mail needs time a little bit.
Even one greeting needs days to be passed

从前的日光很慢

车,马,邮件都慢
一个问候,要等上好多天



The moonlight was slower in the past
With leisure, being indolent
The whole dawn needs a cup of tea to interpret
With little stars twinkling, moments in your dreams move fast
 从前的月光很慢
有点闲,有点懒
在一杯茶里消磨了整个黄昏
在半个梦里看星星满天 

 

 

The pace was slower in the past
From one village to another near it
One needs a whole day on foot
 从前的脚步好慢
从一个村子,到另一个村子
要走一天的时间

 

 

The days were slower but warmer in the past
Through a touch of light mist
Year after year, time is out.
 从前的日子很慢很暖
裹在淡淡的烟火里
日日年年
 
 
The handkerchiefs were finer in the past
Young ladies with soft eyebrows in their perfect fit
stitch by stitch, more delicate
 从前的手帕也好看
最是那低眉的女子
精致的,一针一线

 

 

It took time to fall in love in the past
So slow, one needs one’s lifetime seeking for Mr/Ms Right
So slow, you need your whole life to love people that suit
 从前的爱情很慢
慢的,用一辈子去等一个人
慢的,一生只够爱一个人
 

Now with everything on the go, one gets up earlier a little bit
No time to say good morning, even a hug you cannot wait
现在快,快到每天早早起床
来不及说早安,来不及拥抱

 

 

In fact, in the city center, even 5 minutes’ on foot
Or a bit of leisure time after your breakfast
Everything is different
其实,在中城,市中心,5分钟
茶余饭后的那一点点闲暇时光
就变了一个样
 
 
Now is faster, everything is in the replacement
So fast that life is easily to be parted even you cannot notice it

现在快,什么都在更新换代
快到将生活扰的七零八落

 

 

In fact, cluttered life can be combined by one after one highlight
Like the classical furnishings mixed with modern decorations in a sample apartment
Less dull, less stale, much more exquisite
其实,杂乱的生活也可以拼凑出一个个美好
就像样板间里带着古典气息的摆设和现代化装修的搭一起
少了分沉闷古旧,多了份细腻

 

 

Now time flies faster, just keep the pace after complaint
Strive for your dream with your daring heart 
Embrace your leisure time until you are old but not in the past
Why not plan for your future earlier to some extent?
现在快,抱怨几句,仍要跟上节奏
朝着自己的梦想,在努把力
把从前的悠闲搬到老年时享受
其实,何不早早规划未来?

 

 

Now is faster, dating with your love, after dinner no time left
In fact, time is innocent, but it is all your mind’s fault
With a peaceful mind, walking around the Bell Tower in the old street
Choosing a book in the county library, wandering in the old avenue on foot
You forget time has vanished
现在快,与恋人约会,吃个饭,没了时间
其实,与时间无关,是心理在作祟
怀着一份平和,从钟楼老街溜达一圈
县图书馆选本书,老巷子里逛一逛
老了时光

 

 

Now is faster, so fast that we always recall beauty in the past
Passionately think of the world once in its purest
In fact, for your current anguish, beat it
Go to the North Square, and close your eyes in a moment
overwhelming yourself with those golden days in the past
Enjoy yourself with nothing in your heart
现在快,快到我们总是回忆起以前的美
然后疯狂想念那些纯净的世界
其实,暂且搁置现在的烦闷
去到北广场,然后闭上双眼
任那些美好将自己淹没
放空那个美好的世界享受下就好

 

 

It is good to be an ordinary person at hard thought 
When you said slow pace is fine, I back you a lot
When he told fast pace adds more spice to life , I agree without second thought
Like mansion with its luxury, tiny apartment with its refinement
Good or bad, tell me not
 其实想想,做个中庸的人也不错
你说慢节奏生活好,我附和着
他说快节奏生活刺激,我也赞同
就像小公寓精致,大宅奢阔
各有千秋,委实难分好坏
 
 
No matter how slow the past time was, how fast it is in the current
I know, the earth under your feet, the love around your heart
Treasure them with your best, no matter in the past or in the right moment.
无论从前有多慢,无论现在有多快
我知道,脚下的土地和身边的爱人
无论从前还是现在,都要尽全力守护
