It's still raining in this Beijing without you - by Jiang Mei

After the rock song "Good Night, Beijing" from Wang Feng's Baojiajie, let me try a softer one this time - a folk song from the 80s: It's still raining in this Beijing without you.

It's from Jiang Mei, a female singer, I don't think she's well known, I don't even know how she looks (unlike many shining stars always trying to grab your eyeballs), but this song really touches my heart. Hope you will like it.

(p.s. it's been a challenge to decide what the proper tense is, eventually I picked "present". I imaginarily think this can bring the feel of a "happing story", don't laugh too hard if I'm wrong :)

It's still raining in this Beijing without you
My heart goes into the dim street lights

Passing crowded strangers, trying to pass crowded minds
While you are not around, where your tenderness is

I open my diary at this night without you
Pages of blanks, are all waiting for you

Oh

Love's beauty, blooming in fading dreams
Sadly it turns into tears and fading sighs

Morning breeze blows again, I open my eyes
It's still raining in this Beijing without you

[Repeat]
