Can’t Afford To Be Hurt (伤不起) Lyric (English translation below)

就像一个梦想 只能 想像
就像两个气球 不容 碰撞
说声很有感觉 简单 承认真实相处的感觉 很难
一点点不安 就挂在心上

不是爱不起 只是伤不起
只知道坚持脆弱浪漫 不知道谁不自量
怕难过 想能忘 以为追求完美却又经不起受伤
既然欢乐变成负担 只有不欢而散

就像咖啡只能 不断 加糖
就像亲吻不曾 预备 心酸
只会接受笑容感动 不愿面对抱头痛哭 难堪
沒想到这样 也只能这样

不是爱不起 只是伤不起
只知道坚持脆弱浪漫 不知道谁不自量
怕难过 想难忘
以为追求完美却没想过会受伤
既然欢乐变成负担 只有 不欢而散

不是不爱你 只是伤不起
不断在分享没想过分担
一直朝 泡影 莽撞
才失望 就绝望
以为追求完美变成两败俱伤
既然欢乐变成负担 活该 不欢而散

Can’t Afford To Be Hurt (伤不起) Lyric English Translation

Just like a dream, can only, imagine
Just like two balloons, is not allowed to, collide
Say has a feeling, easy, recognize the true feeling of getting along, difficult
A little uneasy, already register on heart

Not cannot afford to be loved, merely cannot afford to be hurt
Only know to persist the fragile romance, do not know who overrates one’s own ability
Afraid sadness, want to unforgettable, thought of in pursuit of perfection, but unable to bear injury
Since joyous has turned into burden, only has parting

Just like coffee can only, add sugar, constantly
Just like kissing never, prepare for, grievance
Will accept only smile moving, unwilling to face disconsolately cry, embarrassing
Never expect this, can only be this way

Not cannot afford to be loved, merely cannot afford to be hurt
Only know to persist the fragile romance, do not know who overrates one’s own ability
Afraid sadness, want to unforgettable
Thought of in pursuit of perfection, but never think of get hurt
Since joyous has turned into burden, only has parting

Not do not love you, just cannot afford to be hurt
Keep sharing never think of divide responsibility
Always head toward, bubble, recklessly
Just disappointment, at once despair
Thought of in pursuit of perfection turned into a lose-lose situation
Since joyous has turned into burden, deservedly, to part
