Title: Everything Goes Well (Tashi Delek)
Composer: Dong, JianLi (董建利)
Lyricist: Chen, Shu & Chen, Daobin (陈树,陈道斌)
Vocalists: Phoenix Legend [Band] (凤凰传奇)


(Singer: Ling Hua)
A place far away,
A place nearest to the sky,
A place where you can pick up stars,
It is the Heaven in legends.

Hei-ya-la-so, Hei-ya-la-so, Ya-yi-ya-yi-ya-yi-ei
Let me step into your warm heart,
To kiss the fragrance of Kesang flower. (Explanation: Kesang flower means "flower of fortune" in Tibetan)
Silently I stare at you,
Stare at your sacred light of snowy mountains.

Tashi Delek (Explanation: Tashi Delek in Tibetan means hello/greeting)
My hometown.
I had the happiest time there.
I think of you day and night.
You are in my dream; you touch my soul.
I miss you with the deepest love.

(Singer: Zeng Yi)
Let me step into your chaste dream.
To see your natural appearance and enjoy your melodious music.
Let me listen to your songs from the Heaven,
To feel your unconstraint joy and your happy time.

(Singer: Ling Hua)
Let me embrace your soulful singing,
Running out are my happy tears.
Following the direction of sound of songs in the wind,
My soul flies to the remote place far away from here.

Tashi Delek, my hometown.
I had the happiest time there.
I think of you day and night.
You are in my dream; you touch my soul.
I miss you with the deepest love.

Tashi Delek, my hometown.
I had the happiest time there.
It is natural and untrammeled.
It is peaceful and harmonious.
It is the Heaven in my dream.

Chinese Lyrics 中文歌词:

很远很远的地方
天空离大地最近的地方
伸手能摘下星星的地方
传说中的天堂

嘿呀拉索嘿呀拉索
让我轻轻走近你温暖的心房
去亲吻格桑花开的芳香
默默默默我再次的把你凝望
望着你雪山圣洁的光芒

扎西得勒我的家园
我快乐的地方
朝思暮想魂牵梦绕
我深情的把你向往

让我轻轻走进你清纯的梦乡
你自然的模样你和谐的乐章
让我好好听听你天籁的歌唱
你自由的飞扬你快乐的时光

让我慢慢融入你深情的歌唱
让幸福眼泪自由的流淌
紧紧追寻风中歌声的方向
飘向那遥远遥远的地方

扎西得勒我的家园
我快乐的地方
朝思暮想魂牵梦绕
我深情的把你向往

扎西得勒我的家园
我快乐的时光
自然奔放和谐安详
我梦想的天堂
