Taste the Sky English Lyrics



Taste of the Sky-Luo Tianyi
Music/Lyrics: Cokoon

Aww Luo Tainyi is soo cute!  She's the first Chinese Vocaloid! I'm super excited for her because when she sings in Chinese I can actually understand somewhat what she's saying!  Yes I speak Mandarin Chinese (though not very well lol...) my family is from Taiwan so I have a pretty good understanding of it.  Writing these translyrics felt really...weird because since I understood what she was saying I wanted to stick as close to the meaning as I could.  Although I substituted "aroma" for "taste" because "wei dao" to me is more like aroma than taste because it's also something you smell as well as taste: aroma.  There will be more translyrics this weekend I promise!!!!

The morning rain slowly drips down,
Washing off this whole town
I wake up to sounds from outside,
barely half past five
I grab my raincoat, cross the streets,
Coming upon an empty garden
The air is making it hard to breath
its suffocating me

I look up with my pale white face,
Let the icy water embrace
From this rain, I know I won’t hide
I’ll just taste the aroma of the sky
I’m alive in this moment, I’m sure
Not living in the past, or future
Don’t dwell on past memories today
Just let them all fade away
I’m alive in this moment, I’m sure
If I go too far there’s no return
Don’t just wait for your dreams to come true
Go chase them, it’s something only you can do

I look up with my pale white face,
Let the icy water embrace
From this rain, I know I won’t hide
I’ll just taste the aroma of the sky
I’m alive in this moment, I’m sure
Not living in the past, or future
Don’t dwell on past memories today
Just let them all fade away
I’m alive in this moment, I’m sure
If I go too far there’s no return
Don’t just wait for your dreams to come true
Go chase them, it’s something only you can do

I’m alive in this moment, I’m sure
Not living in the past, or future
Don’t dwell on past memories today
Just let them all fade away
I’m alive in this moment, I’m sure
If I go too far there’s no return
Don’t just wait for your dreams to come true
Go chase them, it’s something only you can do
