Under the sea imprints the moon up high.
In front of me stands the girl enchanting my mind.
An audience off the world’s stage, I wish I'd been.
While for all this time, I perform on the screen.
I raise my glass to invite the moon.
Together with my shadow,
A company of three is formed.
I knew no moon when I was a kid
“The plate of white jade” that’s how I called it
From the tip of willow sheds the moonlight
A reminder of our date after twilight
The moon shines on the river where water flows
The sky is always blue where no cloud floats
The moon sets in your window so bright
While you set in someone's dream with light
When will the full moon show up?
I ask the sky, holding my wine cup
Don't lean alone when the bright moon shines
With wine comes along a tear that pines
A beam of moonlight is brought to my bedside
Could it be frosted where it shines?
I look up at the moon climbing high
Down, thinking of the old town I can never find
I could only erase all the years into a song
Amid the hill and the river that runs long
