Lyrics (Original Chinese, Pinyin Romanization, and English Translation):

你眼睛会笑
nǐ yǎn jīng huì xiào
Your eyes can smile 

弯成一条桥 
wān chéng yì tiáo qiáo
Each curves into a bridge

终点却是我 
zhōng diǎn què shì wǒ
Yet the destination

永远到不了
yǒng yuǎn dào bù liǎo
is unreachable for me

 
感觉你来到 
gǎn jué nǐ lái dào
Your arrival

是风的呼啸 
shì fēng de hū xiào
feels like the whistling of the wind

思念像苦药 
sī niàn xiàng kǔ yào
Missing you is like a bitter pill

竟如此难熬
jìng rú cǐ nán áo
so difficult to endure

每分每秒
měi fēn měi miǎo
every minute, every second

 
CHORUS:

我找不到 
wǒ zhǎo bú dào
I can’t find it

我到不了 
wǒ dào bù liǎo
I can’t reach it

你所谓的将来的美好
nǐ suǒ wèi de jiāng lái de měi hǎo
your so-called future happiness

我什么都不要 
wǒ shén me dōu bú yào
I don’t want it

知不知道 
zhī bù zhī dào
Do you know that

若你懂我 
ruò nǐ dǒng wǒ
If you understand me

这一秒
zhè yì miǎo
in this second

我想看到 
wǒ xiǎng kàn dào
I want to see

我在寻找 
wǒ zài xún zhǎo
I am looking for

那所谓的爱情的美好
nà suǒ wèi de ài qíng de měi hǎo
that so-called beauty of love

我紧紧的依靠 
wǒ jǐn jǐn de yī kào
I would hold it tight

紧紧守牢 
jǐn jǐn shǒu láo
guard it tight

不敢漏掉
bù gǎn lòu diào
dare not let it slip away

一丝一毫 
yì sī yì háo
even just a bit

愿你看到
yuàn nǐ kàn dào
I wish you can see that

 
REPEAT

    • Jeff

      Kudos!

  • Jeff

    i’d do her on my sofa

  • Rod

    I can’t find it
    I can’t reach it

    Hmmm.

  • SomeGuy

    I love this site, I’ve been lurking for a while, it’s great seeing the contrasting views from Chinese/Westerns on the same page.

    What I don’t get though is some people in the English comments seem to hate China loads, is it really that bad? My girlfriends work is going to require her to live there for like 3 years. I’m going too. (Tianjin)

    Would a British person hate it there?..

    • Rod

      It’s not that bad. It depends a lot on what kind of person you are and what people you hang around with. If you enjoy traveling and new experiences, you’ll like it here. I’ve found that the longer I stay, they more problems I find, but that may be more to do with my own personality than the country itself.

      People bitch on the site, but I think that’s because it’s the internet, and that’s what people do. Many of us have been here for many years and have a good story for every bad one. The site would be less interesting if we all swapped supportive, happy comments though.

    • Boris

      China is a blast.
      Ditto what Rod said, it depends on your personality. I come from the UK and there’s not much variation in scenery. In China you’ve got some tropical areas in the south, mountainous areas and desert in the west, Siberian extremities in the north-east -and it’s all easy to get to on inexpensive trains. In three years you can see a lot, but you’ll never run out of fascinating places to visit. I found I marvelled at everything in China for the first two years, and then the magic began to wear off. I love my job here. I still enjoy travelling. The food is possibly the best in the world. But the longer I stay the harder it is to lay down roots. Corruption is pervasive, and the level of dishonesty I face daily is just sometimes too much. Everyone wants something from me. Besides foreigners, my closest friends are girls who initially approached me because they wanted to marry and move abroad. I didn’t get romantically involved with them, and genuine friendship developed. But it’s tough being around people who firstly are happy to use you, and secondly don’t see anything wrong with it. Anyway, you won’t have to worry much about all that. A three year trip should be great. Just watch out for idiotic drivers (of which there are millions). Have a safe and happy time. Whatever happens, it’s unlikely you’ll regret you came.

      • Rod

        Yeah, I had my ‘moment’ about 3 years in

      • Epicurus

        You remind me a joke from Chinese website. A foreigner shouted in metro: You are a liar! You don’t love me at all! All u want is to practice oral English!

        • Susi

          OUCH!

    • swat

      It’s a very complicated place that u will love it all at first and then make your own evaluation.

      For sure after living in multiple locations in the Americas(North/Central/South), Europe(Western/Iberian peninsula), Africa(Sub-saharan)….

      I gotta say,…it’s a unique place where you can learn to learn to forgive and understand some of the most ubiquitous perspectives and behaviours…but all in all…you shall have fun changing the micro-world you will be interacting with on a daily basis…jejejeje…

      Good luck and have fun!!!

    • SomeGuy

      Really appreciate the posts guys. It’s put my mind at rest for sure.

      I do enjoy new experiences :), and I really can’t see myself hating it, just got a bit worried reading the negative vibes sometimes posted in the comments, but as Rod said; the internet is the place for bitching and being negative about stuff if you’ve had a bad day, So I’ll take it with a grain of salt from now on.

      Cheers.
