明明知道相思苦

Obviously know the pain of lovesickness (míngmíng zhīdào xiāngsī kǔ)

I did not like this song at all, when first heard it. But it began to grow on me, as I become more inquisitive on the lyrics. Finally, I ‘rediscovered’ this song.
 
 

míngmíng zhīdào xiāngsī kǔ

明明 知道 相思                                (xiang si = lovesick)

piānpiān duì nǐ qiānchángguàdù

偏偏 牵肠挂肚                           (qian chang guadu = deeply worried)

jīngguò jǐxǔ xì sīliàng

经过 几许 思量                               (si liang = to consider)

以为 只是 短暂 插曲        (duan zan = short; chaqu =episode)

多少 分离                (xiang ju = together)

遇见 千万 之一                     (qianwan fen zhiyi = 1/1000000)

时空 我们的 距离 (juli = apart / distance)

wǒ zhī  xiǎng  hé nǐ zài yīqǐ

一起

wǎng rì de tiánmì huān xiào hé  chù zhǎo

甜蜜                (wang ri = former days;  he chu = where)

偏偏 牵肠挂肚

jīngguò jǐxǔ xì sīliàng

经过 几许 思量

nìngyuàn chénshòu zhè tòngkǔ

宁愿 承受 痛苦
