Sometimes you hear songs that are so haunting, you can't get them out of your mind. For me, this is one of them. It was sent to me by the lovely Midori and she also was kind enough to provide an English translation.
Also I found a video on Youtube with another version of the song…
Ding Xiang Hua
Ni shuo ni zui ai ding xiang hua
Yin wei ni de ming zi jiu shi ta
Duo me you yu de hua
Duo chou shan gan de ren ah
Hua er ku wei de shi hou
Hua mian ding ge de shi hou
duo me jiao ao de hua
Que duo bu guo feng chui yu da
Piao ah yao ah de yi sheng
Duo shao mei li bian hua de meng ah
Jiu zhe yang cong cong de zou lai
Liu gei wo yi sheng qian gua
Na fen qian kai man xian hua shi ni duo me ke wang de mei ah
Ni kan na man shan bian yi, ni hai jue de gu dan ma?
Ni ting na you ren zai chang na shou ni zui ai de ge yao ah
Cheng shi jian duo shao fan nao, cong ci bu bi zai qian gua
Ri zi li zai man ding hua xiang, kai man zhi sheng mei li de xian hua
Wo zai zhe li pei zhe ta, yi sheng yi shi bao hu ta.
English translation by "Midori":
You said Ding Xiang Hua (Lilac) is your favourite
Because that's your name
How melancholy the flowers are
How sentimental the people are
When the flower withers time
When the picture freezes
How delicate the flowers are
Not able to survive the storms (Wind + rain)
Fluttering and swinging life
How many beautifully weaved dreams
You left in a hurry
Leaving me all the worries of a lifetime
Aren't those blooming flowers in front of the graveyard the beauty you longed for?
Looking all over the mountains and plains, do you still feel the loneliness?
Listen, someone is singing your favorite ballad
From now on, there's no need to worry about all the worries in this mortal world anymore
In the courtyard I plant lilacs – attractive purple flowers are blossoming
I'm accompanying her here, I protect her entire life..
