[Lyrics] Leaf – Yu Quan

What color is love
if sadness is blue ?
What color is joy
if depression is gray?
What color is the sky
if the oceans are blue?
I say the sky is also blue
because they fell  in love

Yu Quan’s Leaf 叶子 has one of their most simple yet beautiful lyrics. The lyrics were written by member Hu Haiquan for a friend who cannot see. Li Yifeng also covered it with a different monologue while he was under Hu Haiquan’s company.

The MV’s kind of boring, but here’s Yu Quan singing it live with the X-Fire boys:

There is a blind girl called Leaf
she is a good friend of mine
I know in her heart
she can see everything
In her clear heart
there’s a small corner
There sits stories of kindness
and legends untold
That world has neither lies
nor fights
The beautiful girls is called Leaf
She often says so:
In her  clear eyes
there’s a lake
There floats
joyful sorrow
and sad happiness
On the lake there are no ripples
nor colors
Beneath the long eyelashes sparkles infinite thoughts

Leaf asks:
What color is a love true
if sadness is blue ?
What color is joy
if depression is gray?
What color is the sky view
if the oceans are blue?
I say the sky is also blue
because they fell  in love
What color is love
if the memory is blurred?
What color is hope
if time has stopped?
What color is forever
if heartbeats are temporary?

I think I can only respond with silence
for the Earth is wondering the same question
What color is transparent
if the wind is joyful
Leaf’s eyes are transparent
Her heart is joyful.

有一个失明的女孩叫叶子
是我的好朋友
我知道在她心里面
她看得见一切
(羽凡独白)
在她透明的心儿里面
有一个角落
那里停放着善良的故事
和动人的传说
这个世界没有欺骗
也没有争夺
美丽的女孩叫叶子
它经常这么说
在她透明的眼睛里面
有一片湖泊
那里沉浸着
喜悦的伤感
和忧郁的欢乐
它的水面上没有涟漪
也没有颜色
长长的睫毛闪烁着无尽的猜测

叶子问:
(海泉唱)
爱情是什么颜色的
如果忧郁是蓝色的
快乐是什么颜色的
如果寂寞是灰色的
天空是什么颜色的
如果汪洋是蓝色的
我说天空也是蓝色的
因为他们彼此相爱了
爱情是什么颜色的
如果记忆是模糊的
渴望是什么颜色的
如果时间是静止的
永恒是什么颜色的
如果呼吸是短暂的
我想我只好沉默
因为这问题地球也在思考着
透明是什么颜色的
如果风儿是快乐的
叶子的眼睛是透明的
心是心是
快乐的
心是快乐的
