The Poetic City in Lyrics

Authors: Go Chengdu

2017-02-22

Every city has its own song that always reminds you of its memory.

A recent hit at the singing competition, a popular song by Zhao Lei called Chengdu, has drawn people's attention to Chengdu.

The lyrics of the song goes as follows:
"


It was more than the beer last night that made me stay,


It was more than your gentle care that I can't give away.


"

Yulin

"


Such a long road when you held me in your hand,

That I, intoxicated, can nowhere find my free land.
"

Jiuyanqiao Bridge Bar Street

"


The memory gnaws my heart
that we separated in September,
"

Funan River

"


When the willow kissed my head,

so soft and tender;


"

Chunxi Road

"


How can I forget you,

in the city whose memory is still wet?

"

Jinxiu Alley

"


Forever you are the one in my heart,

since we first met.

"

Shudu Avenue

"


So come and again in the city we'll walk about,

"

Shangdong Avenue

"

We walk on and on, till all lights are out.

"

Tianfu Square

"


And again you'll hold me,

and hold me tight,


"

Tianfu Avenue

"

And at the end of the road we'll stop at the pub,

deep into the night.

"

Chengdu at Night
