Lyrics:
SL~~JABBERLOOP~~
Let's go

離開世界之前 一切都是過程 Before you die, everything’s just a process.
活著不難 最難的是做人 Living ain’t hard, how to get along with people is hard.
在移開的眼神裡 代表著默認 As I look away, we acquiesce.
這一切過程 我們曾經愛或恨 All the things we’ve been through, the love and hate.

離開世界之前 一切都是過程 Before you die, everything’s just a process.
活著不難 最難的是做人 Living ain’t hard, how to get along with people is hard.
在移開的眼神裡 代表著默認 As I look away, we acquiesce.
這一切過程 我們曾經愛或恨 All the things we’ve been through, the love and hate.


那些以為是結果 其實是每一站 You thought you reached the destination, but they were just rest stations
每過一站 不斷開始著每一段 Every rest station is followed by another rest station
每一晚 每個抉擇沒選的每一半 Every night, the choices you didn’t favor
都在疑問你有沒有遺憾 Questioning you whether you regret or not

你沒有看過的陌生的臉 更熱或更冷的水 更軟或更狠的嘴 更深刻的... The unfamiliar faces, the water that’s hot or cold, the words that are soft or harsh
怎麼體會 誰的眼神最深邃 How to empathize fringed gowns,
怎麼體會 哪種笑容最珍貴 How to tell which smile is priceless
最忘不了 什麼事是你最放不掉 Unforgettable, what are the things that you cannot let go of
忘不了的黑暗 忘不了的光 The unforgettable darkness and brightness
忘不了的安心 忘不了的慌 The unforgettable peace and insecurity
正經歷的人們阿 那都是過程 What you are going through, is just a process


那都是過程 一切都是過程 那都是過程 It’s just a process, they’re all just a process. 我們把希望寄託在道路城市 We put our hopes on the streets of city
精神寄託電影音樂文字 Leave our souls to music, words, and movies.
人們記錄著 他們說的真實 The people recording as they speak the truth
如此 你只知道結局的故事 Therefore you will only know the outcome

寫下結果 因為人們愛追溯 Just the outcome cuz people love to reminisce
省略過程 因為時間愛催促
