English Translations:
Hey, if you hear this melody,
And I tell you a story, maybe you’ll also find some resonance.
Hey, there was once a boy.
Tiny hands and an old piano, that’s where the beautiful story starts.

That boy climbed on to the piano bench, white keys and black keys filled his eyes.
Venturing forth and playing a melody that would wake fate.

When other children were playing with action figures,
This boy would ponder on the incomprehensible Debussy.
Half steps and whole steps, each step was difficult.
The wounds become scars on each finger.
White keys are the applause from the audience.
Black keys are the hidden hard work.
Praying for a miracle is not as good as endless practice.

Hey, if you hear this melody,
And I tell you a story, maybe you’ll also find some resonance.
Hey, there was once a boy.
Tiny hands and an old piano, that’s where the beautiful story starts.

Not everything is as clear as the black keys and the white keys.
But luckily, he achieved his own position in the world of music.

That year, that song, the melody of River South.
The boy finally experienced the dark and the light.
You can’t learn the rules of fate just from the law of averages.
Luck is finding someone who understands.

Black keys are the endless challenges.
White keys are the Golden Melody.
The interwoven symphonies all teach me to be thankful for every moment.

Hey, if this melody
Can accompany you in your life, that is my greatest honor.
Hey, that boy today
Has become so interwoven with you, relying on each other like black keys and white keys.

Hey, the you listening to this song,
The you that believed in heroes, who are you still waiting for?
Hey, the answer has always been you,
With the rebelliousness of the black keys, change the world and yourself.

Hey, the answer has always been you,
With the rebelliousness of the black keys, change the world and yourself.

Chinese Lyrics:
嘿 如果听到这旋律
和你倾诉一段光阴 也许你也会共鸣
嘿 有个男孩的曾经 小小的手和老钢琴
故事展开了美丽

那男孩爬上了琴椅 黑键白键 映满眼睛
试探著敲奏出旋律 敲开了命运的觉醒

当别的 孩子在 疯电玩模型
男孩却 反复著 艰涩德布西
半音程 全音程 历程多艰辛
伤痕变成指环胎记
白键是 众人的 赞叹
黑键是 暗地的 努力
祈祷 奇蹟 其实不如 无尽的练习

嘿 如果听到这旋律
和你倾诉一段光阴 也许你也会共鸣
嘿 有个男孩的曾经
小小的手和老钢琴 故事展开了美丽

并不是所有道理都 黑键白键般的分明
所幸在音乐世界里 闯出了自己的天地

那一年 那一首 江南的旋律
男孩才 经历了 柳暗和花明
平均律 学不会 命运的定律
幸运莫若找到知音

黑键是 不断的 挑战
白键是 肯定的 金曲
交织 交响 教我感激 每一刻经历

嘿 如果能让这旋律
陪你经历人生风雨 是我最大的幸运
嘿 那个男孩的如今
和你交织多么紧密 像黑键白键相依

嘿 听着这首歌的你
曾经相信英雄的你 还在等待谁降临
嘿 答案一直都是你
带着黑键般的叛逆 改变世界和自己

嘿 答案一直都是你
带着黑键般的叛逆 改变世界和自己
