Hi! I’m Rui. Welcome to ChineseClass101.com. Today, we are going to talk about 5 amazing love quotes from Chinese songs. So today, it’s going to be a romantic episode.
1. 因为爱情 不会轻易悲伤,
(Yīnwèi àiqíng bù huì qīngyì bēishāng,)
所以一切都是幸福的模样;
(Suǒyǐ yīqiè dōu shì xìngfú de múyàng;)
因为爱情 简单的生长,
(Yīnwèi àiqíng jiǎndān de shēngzhǎng,)
依然随时可以为你疯狂。
(Yīrán suíshí kěyǐ wéi nǐ fēngkuáng.)
"Because of love, we are not easily sad,
So everything is happy;
Because of love, we grow up simply,
So I still can be crazy for you any time.”
Okay, so the first one, the song’s name is 因为爱情 (Yin wei ai qing) “Because of Love”. It’s by two singers, very famous singers. It’s by 王菲 Faye Wong and 陈奕迅 Eason Chan.
So in this song, the famous quote is...
因为爱情 不会轻易悲伤,
(Yīnwèi àiqíng bù huì qīngyì bēishāng,
所以一切都是幸福的模样;
(Suǒyǐ yīqiè dōu shì xìngfú de múyàng;)
因为爱情 简单的生长,
(Yīnwèi àiqíng jiǎndān de shēngzhǎng,)
依然随时可以为你疯狂。
(Yīrán suíshí kěyǐ wéi nǐ fēngkuáng.)
"Because of love, we are not easily sad,
So everything is happy;
Because of love, we grow up simply,
So I still can be crazy for you any time.”
I just read an article about a research finding. They interviewed so many happily ever after married couple and asked about their secrets and their signs of successful marriage and one of the common signs is if you meet the right one or in the right relationship, you will feel everything is easy. You do not need to use your brains. It’s just like this song like we grow up simply, I still can be crazy for you anytime. Everything feels easier than before. Yeah like when you are in difficult relationship, you’re torturing your brain or you always feel not so relaxed. You cannot be yourself easily. When you’re being with this one, you cannot be yourself simply.
2. 没有一点点防备
(Méiyǒu yī diǎn diǎn fángbèi)
也没有一丝顾虑
(Yě méiyǒu yīsī gùlǜ)
你就这样出现在我的世界里
(Nǐ jiù zhèyàng chūxiàn zài wǒ de shìjiè lǐ)
带给我惊喜 情不自已
(Dài gěi wǒ jīngxǐ qíng bù zìyǐ)
"Not a little preparedness
Without a trace of apprehension
You are in my world
To my surprise unable to restrain the emotions"
The second one…
没有一点点防备
(Méiyǒu yī diǎn diǎn fángbèi)
也没有一丝顾虑
(Yě méiyǒu yīsī gùlǜ)
你就这样出现在我的世界里
(Nǐ jiù zhèyàng chūxiàn zài wǒ de shìjiè lǐ)
带给我惊喜 情不自已
(Dài gěi wǒ jīngxǐ qíng bù zìyǐ)
"Not a little preparedness
Without a trace of apprehension
You are in my world
To my surprise unable to restrain the emotions"
Okay, this is a song by 曲婉婷 Qu Wanting. She is a very talented singer. She always writes her own songs and play her own songs and sing her songs so I like her voice and her works. Her first album is “Everything in the World”.
3. 在有生的瞬间能遇到你
(Zài yǒu shēng de shùnjiān néng yù dào nǐ)
竟花光所有运气
(Jìng huāguāng suǒyǒu yùnqì)
到这日才发现
(Dào zhè rì cái fāxiàn)
曾呼吸过空气
(Céng hūxīguò kōngqì)
"In the moment of life I can meet you
Actually, spend all my luck
To only this day find
I had only breathed the air"
在有生的瞬间能遇到你
(Zài yǒu shēng de shùnjiān néng yù dào nǐ)
竟花光所有运气
(Jìng huāguāng suǒyǒu yùnqì)
到这日才发现
(Dào zhè rì cái fāxiàn)
曾呼吸过空气
(Céng hūxīguò kōngqì)
"In the moment of life I can meet you
Actually spend all my luck
To only this day find
I had only breathed the air"
This song is by one my favorite lyricists. For my personal understanding, it means you feel you used all your luck, you spent all your luck just to find this person and you already lost her or him, but actually, you’re still in love with him or her. You’re still missing him even after you broke up. You only feel you live while you were with this person.
4. 为你我用了半年的积蓄漂洋过海的来看你
(Wèi nǐ wǒ yòngle bànnián de jīxù piāo yángguò hǎi de lái kàn nǐ)
为了这次相聚
(Wèile zhècì xiāngjù)
我连见面时的呼吸都曾反复练习
(Wǒ lián jiànmiàn shí de hūxī dōu céng fǎnfù liànxí)
言语从来没能将我的情意表达千万分之一
(Yányǔ cónglái méi néng jiāng wǒ de qíngyì biǎodá qiān wàn fēn zhī yī)
为了这个遗憾我在夜里想了又想不肯睡去
(Wèile zhège yíhàn wǒ zài yèlǐ xiǎngle yòu xiǎng bù kěn shuì qù)
"For you I spent my half-year savings across the ocean to see you
For this time together
I've been practicing my breath again and again
Words have never been able to express my feelings one millionth
For this regret I thought at night and would not like to sleep"
为你我用了半年的积蓄漂洋过海的来看你
(Wèi nǐ wǒ yòngle bànnián de jīxù piāo yángguò hǎi de lái kàn nǐ)
为了这次相聚
(Wèile zhècì xiāngjù)
我连见面时的呼吸都曾反复练习
(Wǒ lián jiànmiàn shí de hūxī dōu céng fǎnfù liànxí)
言语从来没能将我的情意表达千万分之一
(Yányǔ cónglái méi néng jiāng wǒ de qíngyì biǎodá qiān wàn fēn zhī yī)
为了这个遗憾我在夜里想了又想不肯睡去
(Wèile zhège yíhàn wǒ zài yèlǐ xiǎngle yòu xiǎng bù kěn shuì qù)
"For you I spent my half-year savings to cross the ocean to see you
For this time together
I've been practicing my breath again and again
Words have never been able to express my feelings one millionth
For this regret I thought at night and would not like to sleep"
This song means I want our meeting to be perfect and I spent all my savings to see you. I spent so much effort to be able to see you so I want this to be perfect so I want myself to be perfect. I want this to be perfect in memory. Even my breath, the way I breathe, I need to practice, not to mention other things. Maybe, I will prepare a surprising gift for you and I will write a love letter to express my missing for you for this long time before I see you. So this love song wants to express how much I love that person, how much deep emotions I have with that person and I will like to sacrifice so much for this person just to see her or to see him even for one time in my life.
5. 你在我眼中是最美
(Nǐ zài wǒ yǎnzhōng shì zuìměi)
每一个微笑都让我沉醉
(Měi yīgè wēixiào dōu ràng wǒ chénzuì)
你的坏 你的好
(Nǐ de huài nǐ de hǎo)
你发脾气时撅起的嘴
(Nǐ fā píqì shí juē qǐ de zuǐ)
你在我心中是最美
(Nǐ zài wǒ xīnzhōng shì zuìměi)
只有相爱的人最能体会
(Zhǐyǒu xiāng'ài de rén zuì néng tǐhuì)
"You are the most beautiful in my eyes
Every smile makes me drunk
Your bad, your good
Your pouted lips when you get angry
You are the most beautiful in my heart
Only those who love each other can understand it best"
Okay, the next song’s name is 最美 (Zui mei) “The Most Beautiful”, by a very famous Chinese band called 羽·泉Yu·Quan.
你在我眼中是最美
(Nǐ zài wǒ yǎnzhōng shì zuìměi)
每一个微笑都让我沉醉
(Měi yīgè wēixiào dōu ràng wǒ chénzuì)
你的坏 你的好
(Nǐ de huài nǐ de hǎo)
你发脾气时撅起的嘴
(Nǐ fā píqì shí juē qǐ de zuǐ)
你在我心中是最美
(Nǐ zài wǒ xīnzhōng shì zuìměi)
只有相爱的人最能体会
(Zhǐyǒu xiāng'ài de rén zuì néng tǐhuì)
你在我心中是最美
(Nǐ zài wǒ xīnzhōng shì zuìměi)
只有相爱的人最能体会
(Zhǐyǒu xiāng'ài de rén zuì néng tǐhuì)
"You are the most beautiful in my eyes
Every smile makes me drunk
Your bad, your good
Your pouted lips when you get angry
You are the most beautiful in my heart
Only those who love each other can understand it best"
This song used to be the most popular song at karaoke, I think still. If you go to karaoke, sometimes you hear it from your neighbor or in your karaoke room with your friends. It’s very easy to sing along so try it. You will like it.
