Chinese rock music..

13 08 2006

Thanks to a very new friend of mine, Chen Xi, 陈曦 (by the way, lovely chinese characters!!), I had the chance to listen to a band called Sound Toy (声音与玩具 / 聲音玩具 / 聲音與玩具).

Here it is lyrics, translation of this extremely nice song, titled “Ai Ling” (爱玲/愛玲), that pierced through my heart! The music itself is from Sound Toy homepage 🙂

Sound Toy Ai Ling
Lyrics River’s translation
很明显迷恋一个人的身体远比爱他的灵魂更加容易 所以寂寞的时候我才会想你 apparently fall in love with one’s body is much easier to be in love with one’s soul. that’s why i miss u when i’m lonely
也许你渴望幸福的家庭 做个丈夫称职的父亲 可我只想要轻松自由的关心 这就是问题 我们的问题 maybe u do want a family…u want to be a husband and father. but what i want is just a easy relationship..this is the problem between us
亲爱的谁会永远爱你 我们爱的人永远只是自己 爱着那样一颗永不安定的心啊 oh dear who will love u forever? what we LOVE are only ourselves. we are in love with the tempting heart inside our bodies
那是什么样的爱情 又是什么样的甜蜜 自私贪婪的索取 以爱的名义 以爱的名义 以爱的名义> how sweet the love is. we claim we receive selfishly greedily in the name of love. in the name of love
来吧亲爱的来到我的身边 我给你讲一个乡村的故事 也许你会说这是个孩子的童话 come, dear . come to me. i will tell u a story of the country. perhaps u will say that it’s a fairytale
那个男人捧着采摘的鲜花 牵着一匹黑色的骏马 乘着落日带着你去收割庄稼 the man in the country with wild flowers in hand, together with a pretty black horse. he will lead u to the field and watch the sunset
他不是一个多情的诗人 更不是一个富有的男人 he’s not a romantic poet, nor a rich millionair
但他能令你永不生厌的爱着他 你们将在彼此的生命里画上最美妙的图画 亲爱的 你是否还想要改变他 改变他 but u will love him with all your heart. u will paint the most wonderful picture in each other’s life..my dear, do u still wanna change him?
亲爱的无论你做什么 也无法让我再次相信 无论你有多么无比的宽容和坚定 my darling, no matter what u do. no matter how strong and firm you are. you will NOT let me believe again.NEVER again
生活每天上演新的悲剧 这其中也许有我和你 有什么不好 我们就停留在这里 不需要继续 还是要继续 there are tragedies happening everyday. maybe we are in it. because we are here, on earth, alive, as human beings. and there’s nothing wrong with it. shall we countinue?
REFRAIN:
亲爱的谁会永远爱你 我们爱的人永远只是自己 爱着那样一颗永不安定的心啊
那是什么样的爱情 又是什么样的甜蜜 自私贪婪的索取 以爱的名义 以爱的名义 以爱的名义
来吧亲爱的来到我的身边 我给你讲一个乡村的故事 也许你会说这是个孩子的童话
那个男人捧着采摘的鲜花 牵着一匹黑色的骏马 乘着落日带着你去收割庄稼
他不是一个多情的诗人 更不是一个富有的男人
但他能令你永不生厌的爱着他
oh dear who will love u forever? what we LOVE are only ourselves. we are in love with the tempting heart inside our bodies
how sweet the love is. we claim we receive selfishly greedily in the name of love. in the name of love
come, dear . come to me. i will tell u a story of the country. perhaps u will say that it’s a fairytale
the man in the country with wild flowers in hand, together with a pretty black horse. he will lead u to the field and watch the sunset
he’s not a romantic poet, nor a rich millionair
but u will love him with all your heart
我们会幸福的拥有一个宝贝 给他名字并且祝福他 听他叫着你妈妈叫着我爸爸 we will have a baby. he will call you mommy and call me daddy
我会做他最好的朋友 和他一起泥地里玩耍 亲爱的你在一旁看着吧 你会赞赏他 i will be his best friend, i will play with him in the muddy playground. dear, u should just stand and watch us with a smile on face. you will love him
这个千变万化的世界里 偶尔沉默是那么让人恐惧 in this rapidly changing world. silence makes ppl panic and fear
我能明白你为什么选择离去 只剩下我 一个人留在这里 i can understand why u left. and now it’s me here, alone

There used to be a video on youtube, but they removed it apparently.. but you can listen to it on the Chinese tube!

Finally found some YouTube video and info:
