Zhou Xuan is the famous "songbird of Shanghai," a wonderful singer most active in the 30s. The following is from a movie I haven't yet seen, but it's her signature song. The song is a dramatic love song sung in a modern Chinese operatic style, so the tones may differ from the actual character. I'm working on memorizing and translating it, so below are characters and pinyin for anyone studying and wanting to sing along and study with me.

（My translation attempt. 如果有人会翻译的话请我帮忙吧。）
At the cape at the ends of the earth, I listen to the sea for answers.
A girl sings a song, A boy offers a qin.*
The boy and I are together as one.
Oh love, love, oh, the boy and I are together as one.
In the north mountain house I wait and weep onto my gown.**
The girl still longs for her boy today.
The boy experiences the tribulations of a deep love.
Life does not spare or pity youth.
The girl is like a thread, the boy a needle.
The boy sews us together so we cannot part.
Oh love, love, oh, the boy sews us together so we cannot part.
*A qin is a Chinese stringed instrument
**"Jiashan" could be a town name rather than a "mountain house."
