海阔天空-Beyond (Boundless Oceans Vast Skies-Beyond)

Beyond

Beyond  (1983-2005) is a famous Chinese rock band formed in Hong Kong. “Boundless Oceans Vast Skies” (1993) is one of the band’s most famous songs. On January 18th, 2013, Beyond’s guitarist Paul Wong Kong-Chung aka Huang Guanzhong gave a moving performance of this song in the nostalgic singing competition I’m A Singer on Hunan Satellite TV. Since this song is sung in the Cantonese dialect, no Pinyin is provided here.

VERSE #1:
今天我 寒夜里看雪飘过
Today, I see the swirl of snowflakes in a cold night
怀着冷却了的心窝漂远方
I (too) swirl afar with a chilled heart
风雨里追赶
Chasing (you) in the wind and rain
雾里分不清影踪
Unable to find (our) traces in the mist
天空海阔你与我可会变 (谁没在变)
Boundless oceans vast skies. Would you and I change? (Who is not changing?)

VERSE #2:
多少次 迎着冷眼与嘲笑
Many times, I faced up to cold hard stares and sneers
从没有放弃过心中的理想
Never have I given up the ideal in my heart
一刹那恍惚 若有所失的感觉
In a fleeting trance, I felt as if something was missing
不知不觉已变淡心里爱 (谁明白我)
Without realization, it has faded, the love in my heart (Who understands me?)

CHORUS #1:
原谅我这一生不羁放纵爱自由
Forgive me for being unruly and untamed and loving freedom all my life
也会怕有一天会跌倒
I too fear I might fall down someday
背弃了理想 谁人都可以
Abandoning the ideal (for a life of ease)—everyone can do it
哪会怕有一天只你共我
I’m not afraid even if one day there are only you and me

VERSE #1

CHORUS #1

仍然自由自我
Still free and independent
永远高唱我歌 走遍千里
Forever singing my own song out loud, going everywhere

CHORUS #1

  1. I see snow drifting off n my mind also drifting off to faraway.Try to catch up freedoms in the rain n wind,but im lost in the fog n cant tell the direction from.I doubt the vast sky n boundless ocean, u , me would be changed.Pursuing freedom,i feel im under a vast sky. Although many times i have faced directly against the contemptous n ridicule from people, i never give up my hope n ideal.But these factors do interfere, so i feel absonminded,seem to drop off something.My love to pursue freedoms becomes lighter n declined unconscientiously.And who understand my feeling?Forgive that my life is full of selfwilled,uninhibited,n indulgence of freedom, so im afraid that i will fall down one day.Abandon their hope n ideal,anyone do,they r out of the way of pursuing freedoms.People”s attitude will not change my dertermination to pursuing freedoms.So im not afraid if there”s only u n me on the way of pursuing freedoms someday.Facing difficulties,maybe im feeble but i never give up.Still im free n independent,always singing loudly my freedom song while traveling thousands of miles.
