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

珊瑚海 (Shan Hu Hai) by 周杰倫 and 梁心頤 (Jay Chou and Lara Veronin)

January 4, 2008 at 8:34 pm (** Medium, Chinese lyrics, Duets, Pinyin lyrics) (, , , , )


Jay Chou is one of my favorite singers, perhaps because he mostly stays within my vocal range, and perhaps because he has so many relatively slow ballads that are easy to follow along with. Add the amusement I get from his strange costumes, and I can almost forgive him for never smiling.

This duet is, in my opinion, one of his most beautiful songs, both in harmony and in the lyrics. Sadly, I can never get any men to sing it with me, but I still get my chance at KTV when my friend Kim puts on her Jay Chou face and delves into the lower octaves. Hopefully, by putting these lyrics up, I can encourage more men to learn the song, and I’ll finally find a guy to sing with me by the time Kim leaves Taiwan.

Note: I’ve tried to stick with the KTV theme here, so the blue lyrics should be sung by the male singer, red lyrics by the female, and green lyrics by both. If this makes the words too difficult to read, please let me know and I’ll keep it in mind for the next duet.

海平面遠方開始陰霾 悲傷要怎麼平靜純白
hai ping mian yuan fang kai shi yin mai bei shang yao zen me ping jing chun bai

我的臉上 始終挾帶 一抹淺淺的無奈
wo de lian shang shi zhong jia dai yi mo qian qian de wu nai

你用唇語說你要離開 (心不在)
ni yong chun yu shuo ni yao li kai (xin bu zai)

那難過無聲慢了下來
na nan guo wu sheng man le xia lai

洶湧潮水 你聽明白
xiong yong chao shui ni ting ming bai

不是浪而是淚海
bu shi lang er shi lei hai

轉身離開 (你有話說不出來) 分手說不出來
zhuan shen li kai
(ni you hua shuo bu chu lai) fen shou shuo bu chu lai

海鳥跟魚相愛 只是一場意外
hai niao gen yu xiang ai zhi shi yi chang yi wai


我們的愛給的愛差異一直存在 回不來
wo men de aigei de aicha yi yi zhi cun zai hui bu lai

風中塵埃等待竟累積成傷害
feng zhong chen aideng daijing lei ji cheng shang hai

轉身離開 分手說不出來
zhuan shen li kai fen shou shuo bu chu lai

蔚藍的珊瑚海 錯過瞬間蒼白
wei lan de shan hu hai cuo guo shun jian cang bai


當初彼此你我都不夠成熟坦白 (不應該)
dang chu bi cini wo doubu gou cheng shu tan bai (bu ying gai)

熱情不在 (你的) 笑容勉強不來
re qing bu zai (ni de) xiao rong mian qiang bu lai

愛深埋珊瑚海
ai shen mai shan hu hai

毀壞的沙雕如何重來 有裂痕的愛怎麼重蓋
hui huai de sha diao ru he zhong lai you lie hen de ai zen me zhong gai

只是一切 結束太快 你說你無法釋懷
zhi shi yi qie jie shu tai kuai ni shuo ni wu fa shi huai

貝殼裡隱藏什麼期待 (等花兒開 )
bei ke li yin cang shen me qi dai (deng hua er kai)

我們也已經無心再猜
wo men ye yi jing wu xin zai cai

面向海風(面向海風)
mian xiang hai feng(mian xiang hai feng)

鹹鹹的愛(鹹鹹的愛)
xian xian de ai(xian xian de ai)

嚐不出還有未來
chang bu chu hai you wei lai

轉身離開 (你有話說不出來) 分手說不出來
zhuan shen li kai
(ni you hua shuo bu chu lai) fen shou shuo bu chu lai

海鳥跟魚相愛 只是一場意外
hai niao gen yu xiang ai zhi shi yi chang yi wai


我們的愛給的愛差異一直存在 回不來
wo men de aigei de aicha yi yi zhi cun zai hui bu lai

風中塵埃等待竟累積成傷害
feng zhong chen aideng daijing lei ji cheng shang hai

轉身離開 分手說不出來
zhuan shen li kai fen shou shuo bu chu lai

蔚藍的珊瑚海 錯過瞬間蒼白
wei lan de shan hu hai cuo guo shun jian cang bai


當初彼此你我都不夠成熟坦白 (不應該)
dang chu bi cini wo doubu gou cheng shu tan bai (bu ying gai)

熱情不在 (你的) 笑容勉強不來
re qing bu zai (ni de) xiao rong mian qiang bu lai

愛深埋珊瑚海
ai shen mai shan hu hai
