About this blog

Fond of translating Chinese lyrics into English ones and recording my own voice, I am sure music is without boundary and can travel worldwide. 

By the way, songs could serve as the great motivation and material to learn a foreign language

九儿 Jiu'er

九儿

Jiu'er

Original by 韩红

Translated and performed by Enjune Zhang

 

身边的那片田野啊

Now right beside me is my dear land

手边的枣花香

Fragrance of date-flowers fills my hand

高粱熟来红满天

Sorghums get ripe

Red and rolling toward the sky like waves

九儿我送你去远方

It's me

Who sees you off to somewhere faraway

身边的那片田野啊

Now right beside me is my dear land

手边的枣花香

Fragrance of date-flowers fills my hand

高粱熟来红满天

Sorghums get ripe

Red and rolling toward the sky like waves

九儿我送你去远方

It's me

Who sees you off to somewhere faraway

恰似你的温柔 

Love me tender in your way

Original by 邓丽君

Translated and performed by Enjune Zhang

 

某年某月的某一天

I know not where it is but a certain day

就象一张破碎的脸

Memory fades away like a broken face

难以开口道再见

It's hard to utter goodbye in pain

就让一切走远

Let it be

Let it into somewhere far away

这不是件容易的事

It's far from something easy

我们却都没有哭泣

But neither of us shed a tear

让它淡淡地来

In a gentle way it came

让它好好地去

Let it decently go away

到如今年复一年

Now all those years pass me by

我不能停止怀念

I couldn't quit the yearning inside

怀念你怀念从前

Think about you and me

Once upon a time

但愿那海风再起

I wish that breeze

Comes back to me

只为那浪花的手

For the hand of the wave

恰似你的温柔

It loves me tender in your way

这不是件容易的事

It's far from something easy

我们却都没有哭泣

But neither of us shed a tear

让它淡淡地来

In a gentle way it came

让它好好地去

Let it decently go away

到如今年复一年

Now all those years pass me by

我不能停止怀念

I couldn't quit the yearning inside

怀念你怀念从前

Think about you and me

Once upon a time

但愿那海风再起

I wish that breeze

Comes back to me

只为那浪花的手

For the hand of the wave

恰似你的温柔

It loves me tender in your way

山海 Mountain sea

山海

Mountain sea

 

Original by 华晨宇

Translated and performed by Enjune Zhang

 

我看着天真的我自己

I see myself innocent and naive

出现在没有我的故事里

Appear in the story without me

等待着我的回应

He awaits my reply silently

一个为何至此的原因

A reason why I could come to this finally

他明白他明白我给不起

He gets it

Now he sees

That I can't afford it

于是转身向山里走去

So he turns around and finds his way

To the mountain sea

他明白他明白我给不起

He gets it

Now he sees

That I can't afford it

于是转身向大海走去

So he turns around and finds his way

To the mountain sea

我听着那少年的声音

I heard the voice of that teen

在还有未来的过去

Back in those days when I was him 

渴望着美好结局

Still with dream within for happy ending

却没能成为自己

But I fail to become the one I've expected

他明白他明白我给不起

He gets it

Now he sees

That I can't afford it

于是转身向山里走去

So he turns around and finds his way

To the mountain sea

他明白他明白我给不起

He gets it

Now he sees

That I can't afford it

于是转身向大海走去

So he turns around and finds his way

To the mountain sea

但愿人长久
Wish you all the best
Original by 王菲
Translated and presented by Enjune Zhang
 
 
明月几时有,把酒问青天
When could we have the moon again
I make a toast toward the sky
不知天上宫阙,今夕是何年
Which year it is now in the Eden
I've lost the track of time
我欲乘风归去,又恐琼楼玉宇
I'd like to be there with the wind
But it's the jade palace in Heaven that I fear
高处不胜寒
Standing high makes me cold inside
起舞弄清影,何似在人间
Lonely me in dance alone with shadow
It is not the world I have in mind
转朱阁,低绮户,照无眠
Passing the loft scarlet
Down to the window low
Moon gets me a sleepless night
不应有恨,何事长向别时圆
It shows no resentment
But why it gets full and bright
When it's time to say goodbye
人有悲欢离合,月有阴晴圆缺
Sorrow goes with happiness
Separation with reunion
The way moon's waned and full
Dark and bright
此事古难全
Things never keep up to
What you expect in mind
但愿人长久,千里共婵娟
Wish you all the best anyway
Apart but we share the same moon tonight

高尚
Nobility
 
Original by 薛之谦
Translated and presented by Enjune Zhang
 
在阴郁的地方 积攒能量
Energy's heaping up
In somewhere doom and gloom
人交出了什么 能变个样
How much does it take
To make it bloom
奇形怪状 的人在生长
Fully grown are people in various costume
我躲在人群中 头在晃
Dodged in the crowd
Shaking my head
I have no room
刺破我的心脏
When you puncture my heart
样本不算肮脏 别恐慌
Not dirty nor filthy
Don't be scared
你看我虚荣模样
You look me straight into my vanity
你该怎么补偿
How would you make it up
我多高尚 向自尊开了枪
Nobility
I put a bullet in my dignity
你同情的眼光 我特别的欣赏
Your look in sympathy
How much I appreciate it
哀而不伤
Grief within the limits
我多慌张 怕人闯入我围墙
How panic I am
For fear that you break into my fence
窥探五官不详 见我原本模样
There is no telling of your face
Nor my original appearance
还能 模仿 任何形状
I am available
To be formed in any shape
越恶劣的情况 越要想象
Right in the goddamn cage
I need to imagine high
狼藏起反犬旁 像从了良
Wolf seems to be mild
When it put the claws behind
张牙舞爪 的人在散谎
Show you their teeth
People are good at lies
愿形容我的词  别太荒唐
Wish that the word they describe me
Is not absurdly applied
贪念表现恰当 就像索要嫁妆 在情理上
Claim it as a demand of dowry
A appropriate reflection of greedy mind
请当我孤芳自赏 还规矩条条框框
No more constraint or limit
I just want it done in the way I admire
我多高尚 向自尊开了枪
Nobility
I put a bullet in my dignity
你异样的眼光 我特别的欣赏
Your look in difference
How much I appreciate it
让人难忘
Hard to forget it
我多风光 你别闯入我围墙
How stunning I am
Please leave me alone in my fence
你要什么真相 不就图个皮囊
How much more truth you want from me
Beside the flesh like this
不如 让我 留在橱窗
I would rather you
Pass me by and let me be
我多难忘 像秀色可餐的模样
Unforgettable
You beautiful feast to my eyes
感谢你又打赏 你用词越恰当
Thank you for your tips
And the wording decently proper
我越膨胀
It makes me flattered
我的疯狂 连我自己都看不上
My madness
I even look down upon it myself
阴里怪气的愿望 那屈辱的轻伤
The freaky wish inside
The disgrace wound slight
谁能给我 发个奖章
Who would grant me a medal
Far from deny
我多向往 有个美丽的地方
How I'm longing for
Somewhere beautiful and bright
我最初的模样 没痛也不会痒
The original appearance of mine
There is no more pain nor sigh
能把赏赐 都烧光
Burn out all the things you grant in fire

Original 残酷月光
By 林宥嘉

Tender moonlight
Adapted & Performed by
Enjune Zhang
 
 
让我爱你然后把我抛弃
Make me love you and then leave me behind
我只要出发不要目的
Start is all that I want without purpose in mind
我会一直想你忘记了呼吸
I will keep you in mind
Until I leave my breath behind
孤独到底让我昏迷
Solitude puts me into coma
And makes me blind
如果恨你就能不忘记你
I hate you in order to
Keep us imaginatively combined
所有的面目我都不抗拒
Everything in dark or bright
I will never decline
如果不够悲伤就无法飞翔
Sorrows harden wings of mine
That's how I could fly high
可没有梦想何必远方
If dream is not in sight
How could we aim high
我一直都在流浪
I've been a drifter for a long while
可我不曾见过海洋
But I haven't seen
The sea with my own eyes
我以为的遗忘
Think that I've made you out of mind
原来躺在你手上
But you are still part of mine
我努力微笑坚强
Be tough and smile
I try
寂寞筑成一道围墙
I make solitude
The fence of mine
也抵不过夜里
But I can't make it through the night
最温柔的月光
When I see the tender moonlight

不为谁而作的歌
 
A song for no one else
 
林俊杰
 
Translated & performed by Enjune 
 
原谅我这一首
 
Do forgive me
 
Right for this
 
不为谁而作的歌
 
A song for no one else but me
 
感觉上仿佛窗外的夜色
 
Feels like the darkness outside the cage tiny
 
曾经有那一刻
 
There has ever been a min
 
回头竟然认不得
 
Look back and fail to tell what it is
 
需要从记忆再摸索的人
 
Fumble the one within memory I need
 
和他们关心的 的地方
 
And the place they care about in deep
 
和那些走过的请等一等
 
Where they've been
 
Just a second please wait for me
 
梦为努力浇了水
 
Effort pays off in the dream
 
爱在背后往前推
 
Love drives me forward in thrill
 
当我抬起头才发觉
 
Every time I look up I realize
 
我是不是忘了谁
 
If there's someone I've left behind
 
累到整夜不能睡
 
Exhausted night
 
I can't sleep
 
夜色哪里都是美
 
Shiver at night lies beauty
 
一定有个人
 
There must be
 
她躲过避过闪过瞒过
 
Someone eluding, dodging, hiding herself
 
她是谁
 
from thee
 
她是谁
 
Who is she
 
也许在真实面对自己才不顾一切
 
Maybe you are real when you dare to risk everything
 
去探究当初我害怕面对
 
To figure out what's the original fear within

杀破狼
Born to fight
Original by JS
Translated and presented by Enjune Zhang
 
沉睡了千年的身体
My sleeping shell for thousands of years
从腐枝枯叶里苏醒
Wake up from rotten branches and leaves
是夜莺凄凉的叹息
Sigh of the Nightingale sounds bleak
解开咒语
Off is the spell
遗忘的剑被谁封印
Forgotten sword
Who gets it sealed
追随着箫声和马蹄
In pursuit of the sound of hoof and flute
找到你
I find you
最光荣的牺牲
The greatest sacrifice
是英雄的宿命
Destiny of hero bright
挥剑的瞬间 心却在哭泣
The moment I wave my knife
I hear my heart cry
生 是为了证明
I prove with my life
爱 存在的痕迹
That love does exist high
火 燃烧后更伟大的生命
Life keeps burning to be greater after fire
杀 是为了歌颂
Sing for you
I fight
破灭前的壮丽
The glory shinning before I die
夜 是狼深邃眼睛
Night
Like the wolf's deep eyes bright
孤独等待黎明
Alone I wait for the dawn with light
看不见未来和过去
I see no future nor the past
分不清生死的差异
Fail to tell the difference of death and life
不带走喜悦或遗憾
Without pity or delight
离开这里
Away I go
破晓和月牙在交替
Dawn and moon keep alternating
我穿越过几个世纪
How many centuries have I been
只为你
For you only
桃花瓣在飘零
Peach blossoms go with the wind
这悲凉的风景
Sad and dreary scene like this
长袖挥不去一生刀光剑影
Reflection on the sword
Would never be dimmed by the long sleeves
生 是为了证明
I prove with my life
爱 存在的痕迹
That love does exist high
火 燃烧后更伟大的生命
Life keeps burning to be greater after fire
杀 是为了歌颂
Sing for you
I fight
破灭前的壮丽
The glory shinning before I die
夜 是狼深邃眼睛
Night
Like the wolf's deep eyes bright
孤独等待黎明
Alone I wait for the dawn with light
我 是否已经注定
If I have already been doomed
这流离的宿命
To the vagrancy
我残破的羽翼
To the broken wings
直到你
Until you
是你让我找回自己
You bring me back to myself real

Original 烟火里的尘埃
By 华晨宇


Dust in the flame
Adapted & Performed by
Enjune Zhang
 
 
看着飞舞的尘埃掉下来
See the dust falling
While the flame's burning
没人发现它存在
No one else notices it
多自由自在
It enjoys its journey free
可世界都爱热热闹闹
It's a world emphasizing harmony and similarity
容不下我百无聊赖
My being boring is far away from it
不应该一个人发呆
Shall I quit staying alone and fit in
只有我守着安静的沙漠
Only me I am the one stay in the desert in peace
等待着花开
Waiting for the blooming
只有我看着别人的快乐
I am the one witnessing others' happiness
竟然会感慨
And swallowing my sigh within
就让我听着天大的道理
Dos and don'ts keep crowding in
不愿意明白
I just don't wanna get it
有什么是应该不应该
I don't need anyone
Telling me whether it is appropriate
我的心里住着一个
Right in my heart lives a child
苍老的小孩
Of old age and he says
如果世界听不明白
If the world can't understand
对影子表白
Talk to the shadow instead
是不是只有我还在问
Am I the only one that keeps asking
为什么明天更精彩
Why tomorrow is better than now and here
烟火里找不到童真的残骸
Innocence of my childhood is nowhere to be seen
只有我守着安静的沙漠
Only me I am the one stay in the desert in peace
等待着花开
Waiting for the blooming
只有我看着别人的快乐
I am the one witnessing others' happiness
竟然会感慨
And swallowing my sigh within
就让我听着天大的道理
Dos and don'ts keep crowding in
不愿意明白
I just don't wanna get it
只有我就是我
Only me
This is me
好奇怪还在感慨
Queer and weird
Feelings stir in me
风阵阵吹过来为何不回来
Wind's closing in
Why doesn't it come back
风一去不回来悲不悲哀
Wind's gone without backing
It's nothing but sad
麻木得那么快应不应该
Is it so easy to
Let the numb has me
能不能慢下来
Can things slowly fade in
笑得开怀哭得坦率
Laugh and cry in the unhidden way
为何表情要让这世界安排
Why we have to make
The world decide the look we take
我就是我我只是我
This is who I am
I am only me
只是一场烟火散落的尘埃
Just the dust in the flame back in peace
风阵阵吹过来
Wind's closing in
风一去不回来
Wind's gone without backing
能不能慢下来
Can things slowly fade in

Original 传奇
By 王菲
Legend
Adapted & Performed by
Enjune Zhang
 
只是因为在人群中多看了你一眼
It was just a single glance
When I looked into your eyes
再也没能忘掉你容颜
I could never get you off my mind
梦想着偶然能有一天再相见
Have been dreaming of another encounter
After all the goodbyes
从此我开始孤单思念
From then on I let you into my mind
想你时你在天边
Think about you
You are far beyond reach
想你时你在眼前
Miss you hard
Then you rest within me
想你时你在脑海
On my mind
You crowd in and linger around
想你时你在心田
In my heart
You sink in and settle down
宁愿相信我们前世有约
I would rather that
This is the love before time
今生的爱情故事不会再改变
There will be no more change
That you are mine
宁愿用这一生等你发现
I would rather that
I stand in line and wait for your glance
我一直在你身旁从未走远
I stay by your side
And never leave you behind

追光者
 
The light follower
 
岑宁儿
 
Translated & Performed by
 
Enjune Zhang
 
 
如果说你是海上的烟火
 
If you are fireworks upon the skyline
 
我是浪花的泡沫
 
I will be foam transparent white
 
某一刻你的光照亮了我
 
You light me up at a certain time
 
如果说你是遥远的星河
 
If you are the galaxy far away and bright
 
耀眼得让人想哭
 
Shining enough to make me cry
 
我是追逐着你的眼眸
 
I will be the one in pursuit of your eyes
 
总在孤单时候眺望夜空
 
Enjoy looking up into the sky
 
When I'm alone
 
我可以跟在你身后
 
I can follow you everywhere
 
像影子追着光梦游
 
Like shadow sleepwalking after light
 
我可以等在这路口
 
I can wait for you in the air
 
不管你会不会经过
 
Whether you'll ever pass me by
 
每当我为你抬起头
 
Every time I raise my head for you
 
连眼泪都觉得自由
 
I set the tears perfect free
 
有的爱像阳光倾落边拥有边失去着
 
Some love pours down as sunshine
 
We miss it when trying to own
 
如果说你是夏夜的萤火
 
If you are firefly at summer night
 
孩子们为你唱歌
 
Children sing for you in smile
 
那么我是想要画你的手
 
Then I will be the hand to
 
Draw your outline
 
你看我多么渺小一个我
 
Tiny I am
 
You have just realized
 
因为你有梦可做
 
My dream lasts because of you
 
也许你不会为我停留
 
Maybe you won't linger over for me
 
那就让我站在你的背后
 
Then let me stand right behind you
 
我可以跟在你身后
 
I can follow you everywhere
 
像影子追着光梦游
 
Like shadow sleepwalking after light
 
我可以等在这路口
 
I can wait for you in the air
 
不管你会不会经过
 
Whether you'll ever pass me by
 
每当我为你抬起头
 
Every time I raise my head for you
 
连眼泪都觉得自由
 
I set the tears perfect free
 
有的爱像大雨滂沱却依然相信彩虹
 
Some love pours down as heavy rain
 
But I still believe in rainbow
