It took time to fall in love in the past

So slow, one needs one’s lifetime

seeking for Mr/Ms Right

So slow, you need your whole life

to love people that suit

Time was slower in the past,
Carriage, horse, mail needs time a little bit.
Even one greeting needs days to be passed

The moonlight was slower in the past
With leisure(闲暇), being indolent(懒洋洋)
The whole dawn needs a cup of tea to interpret
With little stars twinkling,
moments in your dreams move fast

The pace was slower in the past
From one village to another near it
One needs a whole day on foot

The days were slower
but warmer in the past
Through a touch of light mist(烟火)
Year after year, time is out.

The handerchiefs were finer in the past
Young ladies with soft eyebrows
in their perfect fit
stitch(针线) by stitch,
more delicate

It took time to fall in love in the past
So slow, one needs one's lifetime
seeking for Mr/Ms Right
So slow, you need your whole life
to love people that suit

Now with everything on the go,
one gets up earlier a little bit
No time to say good morning,
even a hug you cannot wait

In fact, in the city center,
even 5 minutes' on foot
Or a bit of leisure time
after your breakfast
Everything is different

Now is faster
everything is in the replacement(替代品)
So fast that life is easily to be parted
even you cannot notice it

In fact, cluttered(杂乱的) life can be combined
by one after one highlight
Like the classical furnishings
mixed with modern decorations
in a sample apartment
Less dull, less stale, much more exquisite(细腻)

Now time flies faster,
just keep the pace after complaint
Strive(争取) for your dream
with your daring heart
Embrace your leisure time
until you are old but not in the past
Why not plan for your future earlier
to some extent?

Now is faster, dating with your love,
after dinner no time left
In fact, time is innocent,
but it is all your mind’s fault

With a peaceful mind,
walking around the Bell Tower
in the old street
Choosing a book in the county library,
wandering in the old avenue on foot
You forget time has vanished

Now is faster,
so fast that we always recall
beauty in the past
Passionately(充满激情地) think of the world
once in its purest

In fact, for your current anguish(痛苦), beat it
Go to the North Square,
and close your eyes in a moment
overwhelming(淹没) yourself
with those golden days in the past
Enjoy yourself with nothing in your heart

It is good to be an ordinary(平常的) person at hard thought
When you said slow pace is fine,
I back you a lot

When he told fast pace adds more spice to life ,
I agree without second thought
Like mansion(公寓) with its luxury(奢华),
tiny apartment with its refinement
Good or bad, tell me not

No matter how slow the past time was,
how fast it is in the current

I know, the earth under your feet,
the love around your heart
Treasure them with your best,
no matter in the past
or in the right moment.

-- 木心

It is good to be an ordinary(平常的) person at hard thought

When you said slow pace is fine

I back you a lot
