This is a Tatar folk song which I arranged in 5/8 instead of its original 6/8 meter. it is about a young man whose lover has abandoned him and he sits in the dunes by a marsh, missing her.


在那金色沙滩上 洒着银色的月光
寻找往事踪影 往事踪影迷茫
寻找往事踪影 往事踪影迷茫

往事踪影迷茫 有如幻梦一样
你在何处躲藏 久别离的姑娘
你在何处躲藏 久别离的姑娘

我愿骑在马背上 像那箭样的飞翔
飞呀飞呀我的马 朝着他去的方向
飞呀飞呀我的马 朝着他去的方向


Under the Silver Moonlight
On the golden beach in the silver moonlight,
looking for traces of past memories,
confused as a dream past. Where are you hiding old girl?
I would like to ride on horseback like an arrow flying toward her.
