Lyrics (Original Chinese, Pinyin Romanization, and English Translation):

VERSE #1:

他们说你是一个完美的女人
tā men shuō nǐ shì yí gè wán měi de nǚ rén
They say you are a perfect woman

每次我只能远远的看你
měi cì wǒ zhǐ néng yuǎn yuǎn de kàn nǐ
Every time I can only watch you from afar

他们说爱我是一种堕落
tā men shuō ài wǒ shì yì zhǒng duò luò
They say loving me is a fall from grace

每次我只能偷偷的想你
měi cì wǒ zhǐ néng tōu tōu de xiǎng nǐ
Every time I can only miss you secretly

 
VERSE #2:

你的眼睛 带我盲目到处地流浪
nǐ de yǎn jing dài wǒ máng mù dào chù de liú làng
Your eyes lead me to roam aimlessly

你的心是我 从没有旅行过的地方
nǐ de xīn shì wǒ cóng méi yǒu lǔ xíng guò de dì fāng
Your heart is a place I’ve never traveled

 
CHORUS #1:

你会为我犯错吗
nǐ huì wèi wǒ fàn cuò ma
Would you make a mistake for me?

我会是你犯的第一个错吗
wǒ huì shì nǐ fàn de dì yí gè cuò ma
Would I be the first mistake you make?

错误比完美更有意思不是吗
cuò wù bǐ wán měi gèng yǒu yì si bú shì ma
Mistakes are more interesting than perfection, aren’t they?

我说错了吗
wǒ shuō cuò le ma
Am I wrong?

Mistakes are more romantic than what’s proper, aren’t they?
