一眼瞬間 (Yi Yan Shun Jian) by 張惠妹 & 蕭敬騰 (A-Mei & Jam Hsiao)

March 15, 2010 at 11:58 pm (*** Difficult, Chinese lyrics, Duets, Pinyin lyrics) (, , , , , )

It’s a big tribute to Jam Hsiao’s talents that A-Mei would put him on her album less than a year after he hit the music scene via One Million Star (超級星光大道, one of Taiwan’s popular talent shows) in 2007. In American terms, that would be like Madonna grabbing a recent American Idol contestant to join her for a duet. Of course, although he was only 20 years old at the time, Hsiao had already built a huge following through his TV appearances, and his popularity has grown since he put out 3 albums of his own in 2008 and 2009.

The song itself is beautiful, one of the best duets out there, in my opinion. I’m putting this in the difficult pile, thanks to intermediate-level vocab and vocals that do require a bit of talent for both parts.

Note: As is the custom… blue = male, red = female, and green = both together.


白茫茫的星光 灑在長長路上
bai mang mang de xing guang  sa zai chang chang lu shang

想念的冰涼 你知道嗎?
xiang nian de bing liang  ni zhi dao ma?

你淺淺的微笑 深似海的眼光
ni qian qian de wei xiao  shen si hai de yan guang

都能掀起我 滔天的巨浪
dou neng xian qi wo  tao tian de ju lang

你相信嗎? 這是命嗎?
ni xiang xin ma? zhe shi ming ma?

這次我們放棄抵抗
zhe ci women fang qi di kang

哪怕擁抱 在身上 劃下深深的傷
na pa yong bao  zai shen shang hua xia shen shen de shang

(Chorus)

只要看你一眼一瞬間
zhi yao kan ni yi yan yi shun jian

哪怕是最後畫面
na pa shi zui hou hua mian

我的世界 因為愛過而完美
wo de shi jie  yin wei ai guo er wan mei

誰都不該離太遠 (oooh)
shei dou bu gai li tai yuan (oooh)

只要看你一眼一瞬間
zhi yao kan ni yi yan yi shun jian

足夠我熬過千年
zu gou wo ao guo qian nian

我不後悔 愛若讓末日提前
wo bu hou hui   ai ruo rang mo ri ti qian

我們要一起 好好迎接那句點
wo men yao yi qi  hao hao ying jie na ju dian

白茫茫的星光 灑在長長路上
bai mang mang de xing guang  sa zai chang chang lu shang

想念的冰涼 知道嗎?
xiang nian de bing liang
ni zhi dao ma?

你淺淺的微笑 深似海的眼光
ni qian qian de wei xiao  shen si hai de yan guang

都能掀起我 滔天的巨浪
dou neng xian qi wo  tao tian de ju lang

你相信嗎? 這是命嗎?
ni xiang xin ma? zhe shi ming ma?

這次我們放棄抵抗
zhe ci women fang qi di kang

哪怕擁抱 在身上 劃下深深的傷
na pa yong bao  zai shen shang hua xia shen shen de shang

(Repeat chorus)

如果相愛是錯 錯過又算什麼
ru guo xiang ai shi cuo  cuo guo you suan shen me

這一次我們 寧死不放手
zhe yi ci wo men ning si bu fang shou

往彼此的心裡跳 跳過天荒地老
wang bi ci de xin li tiao  tiao guo tian huang di lao

(Repeat chorus . Note: male/female split differs slightly from previous choruses)

我們要一起 好好迎接那句點
wo men yao yi qi hao hao ying jie na ju dian
