自己按门铃 / Ring My Own Doorbell

Work Text:

song:《自己按门铃自己听》
"Ring The Doorbell To Listen To Myself" sung by Zhou Shen, written by Gao Xiaosong

lyrics in youtube subtitles, as translated by Irrelevancy:

Winter comes late
You have my address
There’s a key in the mailbox
no one knows

You are my tears
The rose on my instrument strings
A party at dawn
exquisite taste

I’ll ring my own doorbell
listen to it myself
I’ve flourished by myself
I’ll wither by myself

It’s my own eyes, my own sickness
My own hideous frustration

We each ring our own doorbells, listen to them ourselves
flourish on our own, wither on our own
It’s our own eyes, our own sicknesses
Our own hideous frustrations

We calm ourselves down.

After you die, I will
Organize your manuscripts
Sell them all off for ship tickets

I am your child
I understand the poems you wrote
I am your eraser, your paper

You have to ring the doorbell yourself, listen to it yourself
You’ve flourished by yourself, you’ll wither by yourself

Your own eyes, your own sickness
Your own hideous frustrations

We each ring our own doorbells, listen to them ourselves
We’ve flourished on our own, we’ll wither on our own
It’s our own eyes, our own sicknesses
Our own hideous frustrations

We calm ourselves down.

Who woke up outside the door?
Who left outside the door?

Alright, I’ve written this far
I’m wondering where you are now
You must be restless
I’ll prove it

Who left outside the door?
