MP3: 等你的时候 我像个傻瓜-洪辰 (When Waiting for You, I Look Like An Idiot-Hong Chen)

VERSE #1:
说一些奇奇怪怪的话
无非是喜欢你的另一种表达
还用一好方法
可以想你不用再装傻
可以想你不用再惊讶
可以想你不用像个傻瓜

VERSE #2:
全世界深呼吸
都不如听你的呼吸
直到遇见你
才知道什么叫惊喜
一点一点一点
爱情还没融化
想你的心已经提前出发~~

CHORUS:
就算我在等你的时候
像一个最傻的傻瓜
就这样每月每分每秒每夜每天的牵挂
你会和我一样吗 想说话又一言不发
下一次我们见面 你还会抱我吗

说一些言不由衷的话

VERSE #1-2
CHORUS
VERSE #2
CHORUS

有时候
我们无法预测 会发生什么
但我们可以决定 自己接下来 做什么
因为有了你 我的梦才不寂寞 才不寂寞
我很享受 在你的身边
像一个最傻的傻瓜
有个人 每月每分每秒 每夜每天都牵挂
你会和我一起吗
想说话又一言不发
下一次 何时见面 你也在期待吗
就让我在 你的世界里
做一朵默默开的花
也许你 不知道我对你 每夜每天多牵挂
又有什么关系啊
反正你在我的心里
留下的 一笔一划 永远都 不会擦

 

Translation:

VERSE #1:
Saying some weird things
is just another expression of loving you
Are there any better ways—
of missing you without pretending to be oblivious
of missing you without being startled
of missing you without looking like an idiot

VERSE #2:
Having the whole world take a deep breath
is nothing compared to hearing you breathe
Not until I met you
did I understand what a pleasant surprise is
Little by little
Before love melt away
The heart that misses you had set off in advance~

CHORUS:
Even if when I’m waiting for you
I look like the most stupid idiot
Caring about you this way till eternity
Would you do the same thing—
Attempting to talk but stay silent
The next time we see each other
would you still give me a hug?
Saying things that I don’t mean to

VERSE #1-2
CHORUS
VERSE #2
CHORUS

Sometimes we can’t predict what will happen
But we can decide what we are going to do
Because I have you, my dream is not lonely, not lonely

I enjoy being by your side
Like the stupidest idiot,
I have someone to care about till eternity
Will you do this with me—
Want to talk but stay silent
When shall we see each other next time?
Are you looking forward to it too?
Let me stay in your world
and be a flower that quitely blooms
Maybe you don’t know how much I care about you every day and night
But what’s the matter?
Anyway you are in my heart
Every stroke that you left there, I will not erase

My Sunshine-张杰 (My Sunshine-Zhang Jie)

my-sunshine

曲:谭旋 (Composer: Tan Xuan)
词:段思思 (Lyrics: Duan Sisi)
演唱:张杰 (Singer: Zhang Jie)
MV: My Sunshine-张杰 (My Sunshine-Zhang Jie)

我们还没好好翻一翻那错过的几年
We haven’t carefully read through the years that we missed
那些迷惘路口有你陪我流泪的夏天
Those perplexing intersections witnessed the summers when you wept with me
阳光刺眼 有心跳的交响乐
The blazing sunshine, the symphony that has a heartbeat
想靠近一点 再看清一点 昨天
[We] want to get a little closer, look a little more closely, at yesterday

 

我们曾经尝试不顾一切肤浅的快乐
We once ventured to taste the shallow happiness regardless of everything
才会一不小心的让成长偷走了什么
so oblivious to what growth had stolen from us
时光 过客 还来不及去迎合
Time, passing guests, before we could respond to them
胸口的微热 总是恨不得
[Feeling] my tender heart, I only wish I could
把你守护着
stay and protect you

 

CHORUS:
You are my pretty sunshine
没你的世界好好坏坏 只是无味空白
The world without you, however good or bad, is a vapid void
答应我 哪天走失了人海
Promise me, in case you get lost in a sea of people
一定站在最显眼路牌
Do stand under the most conspicuous street sign
等着我 一定会来
Wait for me; I will come.
You are the pretty sunshine of my life
等着我 不要再离开
Wait for me; do not ever leave again

 

怕是青春还没开始就已划上了句点
Maybe youth would come to an end before it begins
怕是我们还没熟络就已生疏的寒暄
Maybe we would stay estranged and exchange bland pleasantries before we ever get a chance to warm up to each other
往事浮现 没完的故事绵绵
Memories rise before my eyes: Unfinished stories to be continued
时间还在变 我们还在变
Time goes on; we keep changing
但请你相信
But please believe me—

Rap:
Talking all day is not cool
Noisy like a goose
Why don’t you find something to do
Jump into the groove
This time I don’t want to
Want to be good
Please don’t give me that look
I’m not in the mood

世界难得那麽美
shì jiè nán dé nà me měi
The world was rarely so beautiful

於是追 要你陪

可惜本能终会将美丽汗水化成泪水
kě xī běn néng zhōng huì jiāng měi lì hàn shuǐ huà chéng lèi shuǐ
Sadly the basic instinct would eventually turn the beautiful sweat into tears [meaning the object of affection eventually stopped fulfilling the admirer’s needs]

The reason the dark night is dark

叫醒人心里的鬼

Human beings, except for excelling at being dispirited, are good for nothing

Oh…I’m not okay

人在爱情里越残废 就会越多安慰
rěn zài ài qíng lǐ yuè cán fèi jiù huì yuè duō ān wèi
The more disabled [dispirited] people are in love, the more comforting they will get

无论多虚伪
wú lùn duō xū wěi
No matter how fake they [people who feign sorrow or self-pity] are

Empty is not [only] a word

能够形容的魔鬼

Chris Lee aka Li Yuchun

曲:温伟杰 (Composer: Wen Weijie)
词:李宇春 (Lyricist: Li Yuchun/Chris Lee)
演唱:李宇春 (Singer: Li Yuchun/Chris Lee)

当时还听着 当时的月亮
Back then we were still listening to “The Moon Back Then” [a song by Faye Wong]
我们傻笑着 说愿望
We were smirking and discussing our dreams
要牵手一起 去环游远航
to hold hands and trot the globe and sail afar
以为 爱情 就这样
assuming that love is just like this

PRE-CHORUS:
当时一转眼 已变成当时
That moment has in no time become “back then”
我们两字也成各自
The two words “we two” have also become “we each”
要感谢那些 有你的故事
I should be grateful that those stories with you inside
让我 丰盛 了忆思
have enriched my reminiscence

CHORUS:
爱你 我爱你
Love you, I love you
甜蜜的话 就不再提
[Though] those sweet words are no longer mentioned
感动 还在每当一想起
[I] am still moved at the thought of (you)

爱你 我爱你
Love you, I love you
负气的话依然熟悉
[Though] the angry words [the words we said when we were angry] are still familiar
只是 单纯笑笑而已
I would just laugh them off

不可能 会再爱你
Impossible to love you again
不可能 会忘记你
Impossible to forget you either
怀念 当时的美丽
[But] I miss the beauty of those days

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS X2

当时的月亮 早已化做了阳光
The Moon back then, has long turned into sunshine
