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

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

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

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

残酷月光 Tender moonlight

 

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

烟火里的尘埃 Dust in the flame

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

但愿人长久 Wish you all the best

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

传奇 Legend

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

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

杀破狼 Born to fight

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

高尚 Nobility

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

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
