Xi Liang’s Moon lyrics translation

This song was created by a fan for MGT. The title, Xi Liang (Western Liang) is a reference to the [fictional] country MGT was set in. Some parts of the lyrics are direct phrases found in the novel 😛

Xi Liang’s Moon(西凉月)
Singer: 王卿  

Xia, Shang, Zhou, Han, Jin, Sui, Tang
Song, Yuan, Ming, Qing – the dynasties in history are long
In my dreams, I am lost and wandering
Xi Liang’s moon is especially cold.

If only time stopped the moment we met
For what reason do we break our hearts?
If I had never fallen in love with you
Our happiness would not have taught me sorrow.

With the iron scroll I created chaos
Just to remain by your side
My smile crossed a thousand years of time
To treasure the only meeting in our lifetimes.

How long is an eternity?
Our love is heart-wrenching
As the seasons change, I accompany you
Never to leave nor to forsake.

The man is beautiful like jade
Shouldering the promise to protect his kingdom
Ignoring debt and gratitude, he entered the battlefield
Blood stained his armour, his sword rang.

When alive, we must live to our fullest
What harm is there to love without restrain?
If you had never loved me,
Our happiness could not have taught you sorrow.

The moon and stars danced with our song
Just to remain by your side
My smile crossed a thousand years of time
To treasure the only meeting in our lifetimes.

How long is an eternity?
Our love is heart-wrenching
As the seasons change, I accompany you
Never to leave nor to forsake.


夏商周汉晋隋唐
宋元明清历史长
梦里不知身何方
西凉月光格外凉

人生只若初相见
何须为情愁断肠
如果不曾爱过你
快乐教不会我忧伤

铁卷丹书惹尘霜
只为留在你身旁
一笑望穿千年
一期一会来珍藏

永远究竟有多漫长
我们的爱荡气回肠
沧海桑田陪君醉笑三千场
永远不诉不诉离殇

君子如玉世无双
承君一诺守四方
轻泯恩仇上战场
血染战袍剑绝响

人生在世须尽欢
何妨为情笑疏狂
如果不曾爱过我
快乐教不会你忧伤

星月一曲舞霓裳
只为经过你身旁
一笑望穿千年
一期一会来珍藏

永远究竟有多漫长
我们的爱荡气回肠
沧海桑田陪君醉笑三千场
永远不再诉离殇

      1. Thank you for the link! I’m listening to it now, it’s really beautiful and perfectly fits the vibe of the story. I’ve noticed that many c-novels (or at least the more popular ones) have music accompaniments, I love that. I think music really enhances the reading experience. If MGT ever gets made into a drama it would be really cool if they included these tracks into the OST.
