Mo Ming Qi Mao (墨明棋妙) is a popular indie music group which combines traditional Chinese music element in their music. Their songs always has meaning and are of great quality. Today I'm sharing their first work: Ku Ye Zhi Die | 枯叶之蝶 | Love Story (music video).
白马：月夜曾经送我一个名字 叫“白马”， 杀洪荒四兽，不是为了国家，只是为了他。
|The Narrator: I finished the story three years ago. Ku Ye has never returned ever since. Today is the fifth of the fifth lunar month. once again I stay with him drunk in the wine cellar. I am not certain how long he'll wait for, but I know that I'm burning a book written for three years. |
Rocky ocean wave up and down,
. A small boat traverses through the wave
His long hair splashes on his silver spear
In full armour prepared for war
Closing his eyes, half lying,
The wine bottle at his waist already cold.
Far in the sky there's a glint of light through the dark cloud,
An unlucky sign is hidden in the cloud.
A green dragon watches up from the sea,
Cruelty clear in its eyes
His cool hands
A full bow in light
Cutting through the night
Bringing with the sound that cut through wind
Scattering on the tip of lips
Slightly sweet as sugar
Ku Ye: I have live inside the dragon for three hundred years, but I'm not a demon. I forgot my name. There's a butterfly tattoo on my shoulder, so you can call me Ku Ye.
Bai Ma: Yue Ye gave me my name, Bai Ma. I kill the four evil ancient beasts not for the country, but for him.
Ku Ye: What about me?
Ku Ye: Why don't you drink from the wine bottle at your waist?
Bai Ma: The elders said that the snow lily flowers can be used to make cosmetics called Wu Sui.
Ku Ye: The chest is where the heart is in. You won't feel cold if you lean on me.
Bai Ma: There 's a snow mountain after another. How many of them can you carry me over?
Ku Ye: Until my death. I'll bring you to him!
Bai Ma: If my eyes weren't burnt by snow, the one who I wanted to see most was you.
King of Ye Lang: A 300-year old demon is not allowed in my city. I have allocated my soldiers from the south. Yue Yie, I want you to lead the army.
Yue Ye: I want to be with him.
King of Ye Lang: You family has long been well known for their courage and their contribution to the war effort. Do you want to ruin it?
Yue Ye: Kill him, and return with me.
Bai Ma: The wine's too strong.
Yue Ye: Tonight, both of you will die.
Bai Ma: Do you remember Wu Sui? Help me find it. Go immediately.
Ku Ye: I can no longer carry you. I have sewn snow lily flowers to your collar. Forget me when the sun is up.
The falling sun shown over the bamboo forest
The returning farmers sing
The rain sends the coldness in.
A rainbow forms over the window frame.
Scattering on the city wall,
The blood hasn't cool down into frost.
To let him learn to forget.
Night butterflies flying
On his chest
The fragrance of flower
Waiting by the city wall
Watching the snow fall
Spent the rest of the life without goal
Bai Ma: Bai Ma and Ku Ye should be together. Please help me write a story.
The Narrator: You need me to write a story. I need a friend to drink with. Let's do a deal! Three years! On the fifth day of the fifth lunar moon after three years, I'll help you finish it.
