Grain in Ear 芒種 – Interesting 音闕詩聽 featuring Wimi 趙方婧

I have been listening to this song the past week, and it has quickly grown on me. It first caught my eyes due to its title, Grain in Ear (芒種), which is the 9th of the 24 solar terms in the Chinese lunar calendar created in ancient times to guide agricultural production. The arrival of Grain in Ear signifies the ripening of crops such as barley and wheat, and is a busy period for farmers.

This is another group that has gained popularity in the past year from having their songs posted online, and with this song has started to enter into the mainstream music scene. This official music video was released just a couple of weeks ago…

When I think of you, I start woowoowoowoowoo…
Can’t help being apart, dreaming of you woowoowoowoowoo…
Missing you

From the new buds on the branch
To the timelessness of withering
The price we paid to understand the mystery of life

The last ray of sunset reflects on the hair of a man on a long journey
He elegantly left (this world), leaving all his concerns
Under the bridge (between two worlds)

Your soul from the previous life (passed me by)
Carve our promises on the palm of our hands (so we remember in the next life)
A drop of tear in your eye is like a drop of dark ink

As Buddha teaches
(Don’t mourn the past, don’t worry about the future)
Let go of the stubbornness
(Let go of the past)
But how can I, as if nothing happened?
