Stefanie Sun – The World Speaks Heart Language Lyrics & MV (孫燕姿 – 世說心語)

13 Mar

Chinese:

每一天镜子前我看见同一个脸
却听见在耳边呼吸声好遥远
我想笑我想爱想奔跑想拥抱
我是怎么了像被困住了
时间满满的心却空空的
有那么一天时间停止了
才发现原来心自由才能
真的快乐单纯快乐

每一夜月阴缺我学会不完美的美
心跳声在周围催促我有梦去追
我 又 起 飞 了 我 是 自 由 的
随风旋转着开心唱着歌
有那么一天时间停止了
才 发 现 心 自 由 才 能 快 乐
这种感动我记得像出发的那一刻
哪 一 段 才 是 永 久

太多美丽的语言不比心语的纯洁
勇 敢 奔 向 新 世 界
我 又 起 飞 了 我 是 自 由 的
随风旋转着开心唱着歌
在那么一天时间停住了
我 会 知 道 我 心 是自由 的

Pinyin:

Měi yītiān jìngzi qián wǒ kànjiàn tóng yīgè liǎn
Què tīngjiàn zài ěr biān hūxī shēng hǎo yáoyuǎn
Wǒ xiǎng xiào wǒ xiǎng ài xiǎng bēnpǎo xiǎng yǒngbào

Stefanie Sun – Ni Guang (Against the Light) Live

26 Jan

I don’t listen to that much C-pop. Which is a shame, because I think Mandarin is a beautiful language and I think a lot of the Chinese popstars are consciously aware of the past and tradition as well as the future. Stefanie Sun is one of my favourite Chinese singers (although it should be noted she’s Singaporean). I should listen to her more. I only really know two songs, Mulan Qing and Ni Guang. Ni Guang is the song that got me to love Stefanie. I think it’s beautiful. Check out her performance of it live fora TV special (I think…?). Stefanie is a true artist, she brings something different to the music scene. I think she is so genuine with her performances. I love her for that. I also recently discovered her blog, which is written in English. It’s a really interesting read, she’s so candid about herself. She’s also amazingly intelligent.

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!

Chinese:

我看的見雲在天上混亂的飛
我聽的見滾滾沙場埋一滴淚
這是誰的沙漠 我忘了我是誰
又是誰 讓這天灰

]醒在黑山睡在黃河風吹往北
昨日故鄉東市駿馬在等著誰
鐵衣下的你我 從患難到心碎
我問天 是白是黑

一顆心葬了幾滴淚
一生情背我往前飛
記住這天地中的美
滄海世界 一眼成灰

我想喝家裏的井水
卻吞下生死的滋味
就讓我敬往事一杯
對自己說 絕不後退

English:

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

Pinyin:

wŏ kān de jiàn yún zài tiān shàng hùn luàn de fēi
wŏ tīng de jiàn gŭn gŭn shā chăng mái yī dī lèi
zhè shì shéi de shā mò wŏ wàng le wŏ shì shéi

Stefanie Sun (Sun Yan Zi, 孙燕姿) – Mulan’s Passion (Mulan Qing, 木兰情) @ Hua Mulan Live Premiere

18 Nov

Stefanie Sun recently had the great honour of closing the event for Hua Mulan’s World Premiere in Beijing. This film is going to be so huge! With the nation’s sweet heart, Zhao Wei starring as Mulan, how can it not be a success? I got goosebumps seeing Stefanie perform on this stage. She looks amazing, so beautiful and she sings so well. You can feel every single bit of emotion she feels when she sings. I’m so happy for her that although she was absent from the music scene for quite a long time, she’s been able to come back with such a huge single and honour. I may sound overly patriotic here, but oh well!

Please note, the audio quality is pretty dreadful, but watch it all the same!

Stefanie Sun, one of my favourite C-pop artists is finally back after a long hiatus with a new song. None other than one of the theme songs for the new epic movie, Hua Mulan starring Zhao Wei. This is a huge achievement for Stefanie as no doubt this film is going to be a box office smash! There have been period epics the last few years in Chinese cinema, thanks to directors like Ang Lee and Zhang Yimou. The song is beautiful and Stefanie’s vocals are so emotional. Mulan’s story is one that greatly inspires Chinese people generation after generation and I’m very proud of Stefanie.
