魂縈舊夢
作曲:候湘
作詞:水西村

花落水流 / 春去無蹤 /
只剩下遍地 / 醉人東_風 /
桃花時節 / 露滴梧桐 /
那正是深閨 / 話長情_濃 /

青春一去 / 永不重_逢 /
海角天涯 / 無影無_ _蹤 /
燕飛蝶舞 / 各飛西東 /
滿眼是春色 / 酥人心_胸 /

口白:
花落水流 / 春去無蹤 /
只剩下遍地 / 醉人的東風 /
玫瑰般的美麗 / 夜鶯似的歌聲 /
都隨著無情的年華 / 消逝 /
啊 / 我到那兒去尋找我往日的舊夢 /
只剩下滿腹的辛酸 / 無限的苦痛 /

青春一去 / 永不重_逢 /
海角天涯 / 無影無_ _蹤 /
斷無信息 / 石榴殷紅 /
卻偏是昨夜 / 魂縈舊夢!

Translated into English by Bevin Chu:

The petals fall, the waters flow / Spring departs without a trace /
All that remains / is the intoxication of the east wind /
The season for peaches / the dew drops on the paulownia /
Mere whispered confidences / in the solitude of my boudoir /

Youth has departed / never to return /
To the ends of the earth / not a trace remains /
Swallows fly butterflies dance / one goes west the other east /
The sight of spring / it breaks my heart /

[ Recitative:
The petals fall, the waters flow / Spring departs with naught a trace /
All that remains / is the intoxication of the east wind /
The beauty of the rose / the song of the nightingale /
Gone with the merciless march of years / faded away /
Ah! / Where can I find the dreams of my past /
All that remains is bitterness within / and endless pain / ]

Youth has departed / never to return /
To the ends of the earth / not a trace remains /
Not a letter not a word / the red of the pomegranate /
Nothing more than last night’s / old dream!
