夜空中最亮的星 Song Lyrics

(Hover over the Chinese for pinyin)

夜空中最亮的星
能否听清
那仰望的人
心底的孤独和叹息
夜空中最亮的星
能否记起
曾与我同行
消失在风里的身影

我祈祷拥有一颗透明的心灵
和会流泪的眼睛
给我再去相信的勇气
越过谎言去拥抱你
每当我找不到存在的意义
每当我迷失在黑夜里
夜空中最亮的星
请指引我走出去

夜空中最亮的星
是否知道
那曾与我同心的身影
如今在哪里
夜空中最亮的星
是否在意
是等太阳升起
还是意外先来临

我宁愿所有痛苦都留在心里
也不愿忘记你的眼睛
给我再去相信的勇气
越过谎言去拥抱你
每当我找不到存在的意义
每当我迷失在黑夜里
夜空中最亮的星
请照亮我前行
