Translation~~~

Long river Nile gently summons memories buried in the dust of the years,  a water lily that sleeps for thousands of years

Quietly lingering, slowly meandering, your face like gold is the promise of our lives

Ah, the river of time, could you please stop for me

I am in such vast space and time just to find a love line

Long river Nile gently summons your face like gold, is the promise of our lives

Daughter of Nile, the love is at the bottom of the river

A sigh comes from the ancient sky

Daughter of Nile, the love is at the bottom of the river

The encounter between stars and people will take hundreds of millions of years

Ah, the river of time, could you please stop for me

I am in such vast space and time just to find a love line
