This is the song that Song Juhan sang for He Gu in Chapter 63 of Years of Intoxication.

The song title, 爱何辜 (Ài hé gū), can be translated as “Why do you let me down if you love me?” In Chinese, it sounds sounds similar to 爱何故 (Ài Hé Gù), which means “I Love He Gu.”

I and Hillary are yet to translate the chapter of the novel that has this song, but we’ll post the lyrics here when we do.

Hillary: Hi guys! Since I won’t be posting a new chapter for this week’s YOI novel… I thought I’d give you guys a little something else instead. Here’s a little snippet from the first verse of Song Juhan’s Song “Ai He Gu” – this version I’ve been working on is one where I’ve taken the meaning of the Chinese lyrics and translated it to match the song’s melody so that it can be sung along in English. Hope you guys like it and enjoy!

(0:34-1:14) – Verse A

他們說愛情讓人 寸步難移
Tāmen shuō àiqíng ràng rén … cùnbù nán yí
They say love will make you… unable to move 
他們說入戲太深 難免悲劇
Tāmen shuō rù xì tài shēn … nánmiǎn bēijù
And if you fall too deep… love will hurt you
我聽過很多愛情 的大道理
Wǒ tīngguò hěnduō àiqíng … de dà dàolǐ
I’ve heard them all before… of love’s great truths
我唱過太多鋪滿 愛的歌曲
Wǒ chàngguò tài duō pù mǎn … ài de gēqǔ
And have sung all the love songs… that I once knew
而我從來不懂什麼 什麼是愛情
Ér wǒ cónglái bu dǒng shénme … shénme shì àiqíng
But I never understood what… falling in love was

Title: 星霜换

I uploaded this first on Youtube, but then they had it blocked in some countries because of copyright restrictions. And so, I’m reuploading it here~

I honestly have no idea what it means. My Chinese is not good enough to understand Chinese songs without subtitles. All I know is that the song sounds amazing!

And I dunno if it’s just the song but… The song seems to uuhh… vibrate in some parts? Maybe there were problems while I was recording it XD
