a chinese folk song 《董小姐》

Recently a folk song named 董小姐 (Miss. Dong) is popular with youngsters in China, for it's graceful melody and Light sad lyrics. 

Translation is for reference only

董小姐

你嘴角向下的时候很美

就像安和桥下清澈的水

you are beautiful when you are thinking
just like clean water under Anhe bridge* ( which  is an old bridge in Beijing ) 

董小姐

你才不是一个没有故事的女同学

爱上一匹野马

可我的家里没有草原

这让我感到绝望

董小姐

you aren't a simple girl without story

i'm falling in love with a wild horse

while  i cannot give her a grassland

which make me hopeless

in this song , "爱上一匹野马, 可我的家里没有草原" is a very great sentence like verse, many people love the song because of the sentence. 

Different people have different understandings, in my view,  Miss. Dong is a beautiful lady who is like a wild horse  which  should live in a big grassland freely rather than in a cage.  I love Miss.Dong but love doesn't mean everything, i cannot give Miss.Dong all she wants, and sometimes love is a cage.
