《你要跳舞吗》by 新裤子

This is one of my favorite Chinese bands. I tried to do a translation that is close to literal but also make sense in English. Hope you like it!

你要跳舞吗
Nǐ Yào Tiào Wǔ Ma
Do You Wanna Dance
by 新裤子 Xīn Kùzi New Pants

(♬)
★每当浪潮来临的时候
měi dāng làng cháo lái lín de shí hòu
Whenever the wave hits
★你会不会也伤心
nǐ huì bú huì shāng xīn
Do you feel hurt just like me
★在拥挤孤独的房间里
zài yōng jǐ gū dú de fáng jiān lǐ
In this crowed lonely room
★我已经透不过气
wǒ yǐ jīng tòu bú guò qì
I already can’t breathe
(♬)
★在这冰冷无情的城市里
zài zhè bīng lěng wú qíng de chéng shì lǐ
In this cold and heartless city
★在摩登颓废的派对里
zài mó dēng tuí fèi de pài duì lǐ
In these modern jaded parties
★每当吉他噪音又响起
měi dāng jí ta zào yīn yòu xiǎng qǐ
Whenever the noise of the guitar starts
★电流穿过我和你 diàn liú chuān guò wǒ hé nǐ
(It’s like) electricity shoots through me and you
(♬)
★你你你你要跳舞吗
nǐ nǐ nǐ nǐ yào tiào wǔ ma
Do you you you you wanna dance
(♬)
★每当浪潮来临的时候
měi dāng làng cháo lái lín de shí hòu
Whenever the wave hits
★我当然也会伤心
wǒ dāng rán yě huì shāng xīn
Of course I will hurt just like you
★在拥挤孤独的房间里
zài yōng jǐ gū dú de fáng jiān lǐ
In this crowed lonely room
★我已经透不过气
wǒ yǐ jīng tòu bú guò qì
I already can’t breathe
