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
