天使 (Tian Shi) by 五月天 (Mayday)

January 15, 2008 at 5:04 pm (** Medium, Chinese lyrics, Male Singers, Pinyin lyrics) (, )

I got to know this song because it was featured in the commercials for Le Power, an energy drink that actually doesn’t taste very good. However, like most people in Taiwan, I really like Mayday, so I can forgive them for endorsing a product I don’t like. Moreover, this tune is quite catchy, and I love the lyrics. (My unskilled attempt at translating the second line: “You’re my angel, the angel that gives me so much happiness that I’ve learned to fly.” Beautiful.) I’ve never tried to sing this at KTV, strangely. This is partly because I’ve never sat down to look at the lyrics carefully (the song is too fast in some parts, so I’d stumble over the lyrics trying to read them quickly) and partly because the song sounds much better with a male voice. Still, now that I’ve spent the time putting it into pinyin, I might give it a go sometime.

你就是我的天使 保護著我的天使 從此我再沒有憂傷
ni jiu shi wo de tian shi bao hu zhe wo de tian shi cong ci wo zai mei you you shang

你就是我的天使 給我快樂的天使 甚至我學會了飛翔
ni jiu shi wo de tian shi gei wo kuai le de tian shi zhen zhi wo xue hui le fei xiang

飛過人間的無常 才懂愛才是寶藏
fei guo ren jian de wu chang cai dong ai cai shi bao zang

不管世界變得怎麼樣 只要有你就會是天堂
bu guan shi jie bian de zen me yang zhi yao you ni jiu hui shi tian tang

(Chorus)

像孩子依賴著肩膀 像眼淚依賴著臉龐
xiang hai zi yi lai zhe jian bang xiang yan lei yi lai zhe lian pang

你就像天使一樣 給我依賴 給我力量
ni jiu xiang tian shi yi yang gei wo yi lai gei wo li liang

像詩人依賴著月亮 像海豚依賴海洋
xiang shi ren yi lai zhe yue liang xiang hai tun yi lai hai yang

你是天使 你是天使
ni shi tian shi ni shi tian shi

你是我最初和最後的天堂
ni shi wo zui chu he zui hou de tian tang

你就是我的天使 保護著我的天使 從此我再沒有憂傷
ni jiu shi wo de tian shi bao hu zhe wo de tian shi cong ci wo zai mei you you shang

你就是我的天使 給我快樂的天使 甚至我學會了飛翔
ni jiu shi wo de tian shi gei wo kuai le de tian shi zhen zhi wo xue hui le fei xiang
飛過人間的無常 才懂愛才是寶藏
fei guo ren jian de wu chang cai dong ai cai shi bao zang

不管世界變得怎麼樣 只要有你就會是天堂
bu guan shi jie bian de zen me yang zhi yao you ni jiu hui shi tian tang

(Repeat chorus 3x)
