Title: 爱你 (ài nǐ, also titled A.I.N.Y)

Artist:邓紫棋 (Dèng Zǐqí) also know as G.E.M.)

分开以后每个夜晚 格外的寂静 (Fēnkāi yǐhòu měi gè yèwǎn géwài de jìjìng)
滴答滴答 剩大钟在陪着我回忆 (Dīdā dīdā shèng dà zhōng zài péizhe wǒ huíyì)
电话里头曾经是你最温柔的声音 (Diànhuà li tóu céngjīng shì nǐ zuì wēnróu de shēngyīn)
现在只有空气 冷漠地回应 (Xiànzài zhǐyǒu kòng qì lěngmò dì huíyīng)

Every night after we separated has been especially quiet
Tic tock, tic tock, continues the clock to reminisce with me
In my telephone I once heard your most tender voice,
Now there’s only air, responding indifferently

OH 给你我的心 能否请你别遗弃 (OH gěi nǐ wǒ de xīn néng fǒu qǐng nǐ bié yíqì)
一句爱你爱你爱你爱你 能否再也不分离 (Yījù ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ néng fǒu zài yě bù fēnlí)
OH 给你我的心 为什么你却给了我孤寂 (OH gěi nǐ wǒ de xīn wèishéme nǐ què gěile wǒ gūjì)
就算爱你爱你爱你爱你 可能你也不想听 (Jiùsuàn ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ kěnéng nǐ yě bùxiǎng tīng)

Oh, I gave you my heart, can you please not abandon it
Words of love you, love you, love you, love you, can we not separate?
Oh, I gave you my heart, why did you give me loneliness?
Even love you, love you, love you, love you, you probably won’t even listen

你的拥抱曾经是 最温暖最熟悉 (Nǐ de yǒngbào céngjīng shì zuì wēnnuǎn zuì shúxī)
现在换了谁安睡在你胸口的位置 (Xiànzài huànle shuí ānshuì zài nǐ xiōngkǒu de wèizhì)
你的承诺曾是一种不自觉的甜蜜 (Nǐ de chéngnuò céng shì yī zhǒng bù zìjué de tiánmì)
现在一划一笔 刺在我心里 (Xiànzài yī huá yī bǐ cì zài wǒ xīnlǐ)

Your embrace was once a familiar warmth
Now who is lying at your chest as a substitute?
Your vows were once unconsciously sweet
Now every stroke is a thorn in my heart

CHORUS

回忆 (最后的回忆) 对你最后的回忆 (Huíyì (zuìhòu de huíyì) duì nǐ zuìhòu de huíyì)
是你 (走远的身影) 慢慢走远的身影 (Shì nǐ (zǒu yuǎn de shēnyǐng) màn man zǒu yuǎn de shēnyǐng)
然后你 (然后你 离开) 离开了没有痕迹 (Ránhòu nǐ (ránhòu nǐ líkāi) líkāile méiyǒu hénjī)
然后我 (然后我 哭泣) 崩溃了放纵哭泣 (Ránhòu wǒ (ránhòu wǒ kūqì) bēngkuìle fàngzòng kūqì)
恨你恨你 (想你) 每当我想起曾经曾经曾经曾经 (Hèn nǐ hèn nǐ (xiǎng nǐ) měi dāng wǒ xiǎngqǐ céngjīng céngjīng céngjīng céngjīng)
还是爱你爱你爱你爱你 难道还不能清醒 (Háishì ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ nándào huán bùnéng qīngxǐng)

Memories, my final memories of you (memories, final memories)
It’s your slowly disappearing figure (your disappearing figure)
then you left without a trace (then you left)
then I broke down and wept (then I wept)
Hate you, hate you, every time I think of how it once was (hate you every time I think of you, every time I think of what once was)
Once was, once was, once was, once was

Still love you, love you, love you, love you
Still can’t be rational

OH 给你我的心 为什么你却给了我孤寂 (OH gěi nǐ wǒ de xīn wèishéme nǐ què gěile wǒ gūjì)
一句爱你爱你爱你爱你 难道你也不想听 (Yījù ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ nándào nǐ yě bùxiǎng tīng)
OH 给你我的心 爲什麽你却给了我孤寂 (OH gěi nǐ wǒ de xīn wèishénmó nǐ què gěile wǒ gūjì)
就算爱你爱你爱你爱你 不值得为你伤心 (Jiùsuàn ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ ài nǐ bù zhídé wèi nǐ shāngxīn)
伤心… (hāngxīn…)

Oh, I gave you my heart, can you please not abandon it
Words of love you, love you, love you, love you, can we not separate?
Oh, I gave you my heart, why did you give me loneliness?
Even love you, love you, love you, love you, not worth being heartbroken over you

Your confession remains to be my final pleading,
But the only thing that’s here with me is tic tac tic tac tic tac tic tac
