It's hard to tell what's real and what's fake,
By nature, people aren't what they seem.
Who will share with you in good times,
But also share when water drips from the roof ?
Like a simple frog deep in a well,
dreaming of fame and fortune,
Full of hope, unaware of difficulty.
Who knows when golden houses can turn to hovels ?
If life destines something for you, it will happen in the end
If life destines it not to happen, there's no point begging otherwise. .
When thunder roars and lightning strikes,
There's no need to be afraid
As long as your conscience is clear and your heart is just,
We are like the sand in the sea
There's no use in feeling bad
We can see the sunset in the sky above.
Fame and fortune can vanish like the mist
