Stefanie Sun (Sun Yan Zi, 孙燕姿) – Mulan’s Passion (Mulan Qing, 木兰情) English/Chinese/Pinyin Lyrics

19 Nov

Here are the lyrics to Stefanie Sun’s new song for Hua Mulan. I didn’t translate the lyrics myself, credit goes to here and the Chinese lyrics come from here. However, the pinyin translation I did myself, so you can sing along even if you don’t know Chinese! Please note, for the pinyin lyrics I added a repeat of the chorus which is how it is in the MV. Really loving this song!


這是誰的沙漠 我忘了我是誰
又是誰 讓這天灰

鐵衣下的你我 從患難到心碎
我問天 是白是黑

滄海世界 一眼成灰

對自己說 絕不後退


I saw the clouds…wandering aimlessly in the sky
I heard a teardrop in the midst of the raging sand
Who does this desert belongs to?

I’ve forgotten who I am
And who…turns this sky grey?
I woke up on the black mountain,
Lying next to the Yellow river…

The winds are howling to the north
Where were the horses at the market in my homeland waiting for?

Under the leaded armor,
You and me…. through thick and thin,
Our hearts are shattering

I asked the heavens… what is black or white?
How many drops of tears can one heart bury?
How I’ve hung on because of my love?
I’ll remember the beauty in this land and sky

The world …turns to dust in an instant

I want to drink the water from the well in my home
But all I tasted was life and death
Let me toast to my fond memories
To say to myself…I won’t turn back


wŏ kān de jiàn yún zài tiān shàng hùn luàn de fēi

    Thank you SO much for this translation. I am Irish with low level Mandarin. I love the fact that you translated to pinyin WITH the tones. Thanks again. Just a question – how do the tones apply when you are singing? they don’t seem to be so strictly adhered to.

    • peachai 21/02/2011 at 12:33 pm #

      That’s correct! When singing, the tones aren’t used as much because… well… you’re singing! But goodluck and you’re welcome :)

    I LOVE THE TRADITIONAL CHINESE MUSIC and this song is exactly for me!!!!!!!
    SHE had a beautiful VOICE!!!!

    Thanks for posting. I bought the movie and heard the music throughout it, and then the song at the end. Even though, I couldn’t understand it, I felt like the emotions in it. Stefanie sun has an amazing voice. Do you have any other songs you would recommend that is easy to follow with the pinyin, I am trying to teach myself it, but it is quite hard and I find seeing and hearing the words together really helps me remember and understand.
    Again, thanks for posting!

    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up!

    I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back in the future.

    It’s very simple to find out any topic on web as compared to
    textbooks, as I found this post at this site.

    Thank you for the good writeup. It in fact was a amusement account it.

    Look advanced to far added agreeable fdom you! By the way, how could we communicate?

  20. Post it to “Public” and ask your friends to share it if possible.
    Thus, there are no two ways about the many benefits of search engine and social
    media marketing. They will advertise their job with a description of what needs to
    be done and you will have to chance to “bid” and write a proposal for them.
    To take advantage of this new method of building business you need to know
    what steps to perform. com and Bing, the higher are its sales charges and big
    demand. All in all, the major advantage of using social media as
    a major outlet for your marketing is that you
    reach more people than by other means. Getting more business using social media such as Facebook and Twitter is a
    tendency that is growing by the day due to the success that many small and medium business have experienced once
    the correct techniques are learned and put into practice; however, it
    is important to identify all the opportunities in order to
    increase the visibility and build the synergies
    needed to improve the brand of the company as well
    as improving the quality of the customer service – this is the way to use social media to get more business.
    t need to be convinced that this is not a pyramid scheme or a scam,
    they already see the value in buying a biz op, and they have experience as home-based business owners.
    It is important that you gain an understanding of the substance
    behind that choice to cheat so that you can create meaning from the affair to prevent another
    affair from happening. No one wants to hear from
    a company every day, even one they like.

    Overall, Amazon is a wonderful place for the best tanning creams at an extremely discounted rate to help you save some serious cash and
    get the products you really want. To start with, one should
    test out this product by making use of the item with a small portion of your skin and observe for reactions.

    Moving to some sunny place can be an effective means to get
    an all round glow.

  22. Hair removal in some areas is essential to replace
    the areas where its growth has stopped. Electrolysis – Electrolysis is a solution which utilizes
    a needle to kill the hair at its root. Such devices as KTP, ERBIUM, Pulse DYE and Alexandrite have short length
    of laser light waves, and they are very effective for removing unwanted hair on a
    light colored skin.

    This is all good, but in the end only you can make decisions about
    your kitchen renovation. A few indulgent upgrades to build
    cooking more interesting are welcome enhancements, too.
    Start an inspiration file and share it with your designer during your initial meetings.
