Moonlight Over The Surged Sea-Art Song by Li Tai-Hsiang (月光海湧-李泰祥)
I.    Lyrics (translated from Chinese)

Moonlight over the surged sea. Moonlight over the surged sea.
It surges forward your bashful smile that you have since you were young.
And now, the smile is still on your already wrinkled face after all these vicissitudes.
We are beaming with satisfaction, beaming with satisfaction.
Because we have arduously passed through the long waiting. And now we are beaming with satisfaction.
Moonlight over the surged sea. It surges forward waves of sweet good time.
Don’t have to say love. Look at me quietly, and spend a whole life with me.
Don’t need to say love. Follow me steadily, and walk with me for the whole life.
Don’t have to say love. Hold my hand tenderly, and be happy for the whole life.
Don’t need to say love. Watch me carefully, and enjoy a whole life with me.
Moonlight over the surged sea. Moonlight over the surged sea.

Lyrics written by Lin Cheng-Sheng and Li Tai-Hsiang (林正盛、李泰祥)

月光海湧 月光海湧
我們春風滿面 春風滿面
因為艱辛走過漫長等待 如今春風滿面
月光海湧 湧著波波甜蜜美好時光
不必說愛 安靜地望著我 共渡一生
不用說愛 堅定地跟著我 走過一生
不必說愛 輕柔地握著我 歡喜一生
不用說愛 用心的守著我 共享一生
月光海湧 月光海湧

II.    About this Song

Exposition of the music:
The song once was nominated at the 16th Golden Melody Award - Traditional and Artistic Music Category: in the area of Publication Award – The Best Crossover Music Album: Clouds Flying over the Head / Jingo Digital Inc.
Lyrics: Lin Cheng-Sheng and Li Tai-Hsiang; Song: Li Tai-Hsiang.
It started with an experimental movie that Director Lin and I created the link and appreciated each other.
We agreed that we must work together to create a movie. I said.
Director, you just give me some lyrics, I can write you the song.
And the moonlight then surged from the sea to us…
This song was recorded for the most repeated times. He sang many times with students.
Until the phase of mix-down, we still had not yet decided the version.
Finally, no one wanted to part with things he treasured.
Now the music you are listening to is adult version.
We also have the juvenile version…
—From the album of “Clouds Flying over the Head”
