CHORUS:
身在他乡 志在远方
shēn zài tā xiāng zhì zài yuǎn fāng
I’m abroad, my dreams afar,

你的爱让我坚强
nǐ de ài ràng wǒ jiān qiáng
your love makes me strong.

歌声荡漾 你为我鼓掌
gē shēng dàng yàng nǐ wèi wǒ gǔ zhǎng
Ripples of singing, you give me applause,

沉浸在爱的海洋
chén jìn zài ài de hǎi yáng
immersed in an ocean of love.

 
从 不敢想到 想去做到
cóng bù gǎn xiǎng dào xiǎng qù zuò dào
From “not daring to want it” to “wanting to do it” to

做到我想的
zuò dào wǒ xiǎng de
“achieving what I wanted”,

事实证明我并不像他们想象的那样脆弱
shì shí zhèng míng wǒ bìng bú xiàng tā men xiǎng xiàng de nà yàng cuì ruò
I proved that I’m not as weak as they imagined.

我只是需要一盏灯
wǒ zhǐ shì xū yào yì zhǎn dēng
All I need is a lamp,

一架钢琴 一支麦克风
yí jià gāng qín yì zhī mài kè fēng
a piano, and a microphone.

 
CHORUS

 
曾经想象过做一名医生救死扶伤
cēng jīng xiǎng xiàng guò zuò yì míng yī shēng jiù sǐ fú shàng
I once dreamed of being a doctor, to save the dying and heal the wounded.

也曾想象过做律师 做记者
yě céng xiǎng xiàng guò zuò lǜ shī
I also once dreamed of being a lawyer, a journalist,

做奥运冠军 但是都没有结果
zuò ào yùn guàn jūn dàn shì dōu méi yǒu jié guǒ
a Olympic champion, but none of them bore fruit,

因为我最想要的是一盏灯
yīn wèi wǒ zuì xiǎng yào de shì yì zhǎn dēng
because what I want the most is a lamp,

一架钢琴 一支麦克风
yí jià gāng qín yì zhī mài kè fēng
a piano, and a microphone.

 
CHORUS x3

 
沉浸在爱的海洋
chén jìn zài ài de hǎi yáng
Immersed in an ocean of love.

    • Gordon Gogodancer

      Yes, I am miss you so much!

  • linette lee

    I like her. She is good. She is a good composer and a good singer. She is nice looking too. She has the whole package.

    • MrT

      nice hair.

    • Cauffiel

      En. No tits.

      • MrT

        optional in China.

        • Cauffiel

          I’m just being a douche. I like small tits.

      • YourSupremeCommander

        Small tits are more sensitive & more responsive.

        • Cauffiel

          Yes, they sure are, sir!!

        • Refractions_of_Error

          Well you certainly appear to be responsive but I did not realize you had a sensitive side to you.

          • Mighty曹

            lol! That’s one of the best line I’ve ever seen here!

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Gracious bow Sir. But I just could not resist….

            Now watch. He’ll go nuts. Actually tits up may be more fitting.

          • YourSupremeCommander

            If you and mighty get a room together, I must wonder if you guys would let me join in.

          • Mighty曹

            You going down that road again? Alright!

          • Scream_Writer

            Mighty and I already have a room together, and it’s filled to capacity. Any more would be a fire hazard. I mean, more of a fire hazard.

          • Mighty曹

            haha.. you called it!

          • Refractions_of_Error

            I think I just touched a nerve. Or two. Now the gimp is out to attack you! Hahahaha. He must have woken up from a nightmare that supremo was butt hurt and rushed to his defense!

          • Robert Rou

            RoE, get a life. You spam these boards more than anyone on here, like some fucking tard. Being in China has gotten to your head. You’re a nobody.

          • Mighty曹

            And what are you? Just somebody’s bitchboy in the Castro.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            For a nobody, I am getting copious unwanted attention from you. As I said, get back in your cage. Shooo, shooo, gyet!

          • Robert Rou

            You jerk off RoE’s nuts at night too or you just like to flatter him with compliments?

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Who rattled your cage? Go back.

          • Robert Rou

            I’m right here for you RoE, fuking loser.

          • Mighty曹

            You’re just so ready to bend over.

          • Robert Rou

            Castro is right over there, Mr. Chubs. Go get your fill.

          • Mighty曹

            I’m good where I am. Please don’t invite me to your gay ‘hood.

          • Robert Rou

            Aren’t you the sex pro here, Mr. Mighty Cao. You’re not interested in the anal?

          • Mighty曹

            Yes, I’m the hetrosex pro and you’re the homo sex pro who’s only interested in anal fuckfest.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            I’m ending this man. No point. This dude just jumps into a conversation and starts cursing blindly. Don’t even reply to the gimp. Supremo at least tries humor. The gimp is wild man.

          • Mighty曹

            Good point. But eventually I will get bored with him. But until then I’ll let him entertain me.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Ok man, sorry if I got you into this shit for nothing. Hahahhaa….

            Had to edit this.

            Oh well, lets see how angry this Gimp really gets.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Why? You and supremo need a hand?

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Gimp look, you are supposed to be nursing your supremopedo. Go to him now. He be butt hurt real bad.

          • Mighty曹

            He’s looking for a new penis to fill his loosening ass.

          • Robert Rou

            Get over yourself. YOU’RE A FUCKING LOSER. You were a loser in your home country, and moving to China don’t help that.

          • Mighty曹

            Hahahahahaha… the same boring rhetoric. See who’s the fucking loser now?

          • Refractions_of_Error

            What about all the chinese moving to my country? Don’t start THIS because you will get mauled on this forum by almost every normal human being. Also, make your point without using profanity. Foul language is a sign of low social standing and lack of vocabulary. At the moment, you qualify for both.

            Detention for 5,000 years.

          • Germandude

            In his case it’s more like: Incest and sodomy for 5,000 years.

          • Mighty曹

            That was just my compliment but if it helps you reach an orgasm in any way, day or night, you can thank me too.

          • Robert Rou

            We’ve seen the compliments all right. There’s more circle jerk between all you losers that there’s more than enough cum all over all your face.

          • Mighty曹

            Suck me off and I’ll cum on your face again. Faggit.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            The Gimp has indeed arrived.

          • Robert Rou

            I’m sure you know first hand what faggot is.

          • Mighty曹

            Definitely. That’s why I’m calling you one. Fag.!

          • Refractions_of_Error

            With all due respect, I can’t tell you what to do but you are an intelligent dude. Don’t bother replying to ‘Robert’ Gimp Row Row. He can only curse and even that not very well. I am missing supremo, at least TRIES to be funny.

          • Robert Rou

            Yah, I’m done here. I wasted enough time with you low-life scum on here.

            Keep up that circle jerk gentlemen. You need all the protein you can get you fucking losers.

          • Mighty曹

            You sure know the nutritional value of cum. Good health to you!

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Good. Go back to your cage. You just appeared suddenly swearing blindly, got verbal lesions all over your ego. Why could you not try and have a decent conversation? Humor is humor? Don’t be so uptight.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            BwHAhAhAh!

          • Robert Rou

            More circle jerk from the positively awesome ROE. Bwhahahh! Not.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Why thank you for calling me positively awesome. See? Not so hard is it. Now give me a cigarette. Make some coffee. Two sugars. Milk. And stir it anti-clockwise.

            Go back to cage.

          • Kai

            Refractions_of_Error Mighty曹 Robert Rou

            Okay, this is what we call a group of people engaging in the disruptive behavior of flooding the comments section trolling and harassing each other.

            Not a single one of you are unfamiliar with the internet wisdom and advice of “don’t feed the troll” and the glee with which you guys reciprocated, participated in, and perpetuated this nonsense makes the question of “who started it” no longer meaningful.

            This will be the last warning. Next time I’m banning you guys.

            @refractions_of_error:disqus @disqus_cMEpI8N2JX:disqus @a8b3363301d8f3ee17cecc9cde1befea:disqus

          • Refractions_of_Error

            ‘Next time I’m banning you guys.’

            SO you make these decisions all by yourself?

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Kai I would appreciate a reply. Even on the most recent article, robert rou continues to post crap. Yet you address you ‘warning’ to me. Are you the sole moderator who decides all in his own power as to who should be banned or not? I would appreciate a yes or no reply. Not a long winded essay.

          • Kai

            I addressed the warning to all three of you. That’s what the @s are for (it’s a Disqus feature that works like Twitter). Every moderator has the discretion to ban people for comment policy violations.

            I’m going to review the latest comments now. If he’s “continuing to post crap”, it’ll be dealt with. I’m sorry if I wasn’t here 21 hours ago. Yesterday was the MidAutumn holiday and I was spending it with family.

          • mr.wiener

            Holy sh*t!!
            I hadn’t looked at this story in a while as I have little interest in Chinese singers, but what you guys have done in here….It’s like a bunch of chimps rolled in turned the furniture into firewood and painted the walls with their excreta.
            This crap has got to stop, I agree with Kai 100%. No more long winded flame wars. No more long winded circle jerks and talking smack about other users. There are other people who like using this site you know, you think they like reading this childish bullshit?!!
            I’m pissed now, and because I’m a mod I have to be pissed but even handed. You do this crap again and you will get moderated.
            And let me make it clear I’m talking to @Mighty, @Roe and @Robert Rou.

          • Kai

            The mentions feature is a little finnicky. If the @s in your comment don’t bold and your final comment doesn’t show the @s as links, it didn’t work.

          • YourSupremeCommander

            I know tiny titties are responsive because your GF told me… ooops did i say that out loud? Is it too late to take it back?

          • Guest

            She actually told you that too? So proud of her. Great minds think alike…

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Don’t take it back please! Just keep posting!

        • Mighty曹

          As a friend I must warn you to stay away from little girls.

          • YourSupremeCommander

            That’s how little girls become women! RoE can tell you all about it.

          • Mighty曹

            They eventually grow up to be women after years of pedophilia abuse.

          • Guest

            He’s right, sigh. I do know all about it. I have been working on him and his pedo instincts but he just can’t stop himself. Beyond help really. Time to call in the gimp.

          • Gordon Gogodancer

            hahaha

      • Gordon Gogodancer

        Personally tits are not at the top of my priority list (not at the very top, to be clear)

        • Cauffiel

          Yeah. We all know. You’re a butthole man.

    • Germandude

      “She has the whole package.”

      Yeah, right. For these deep song lyrics, it should rain awards upon her…

      • linette lee

        No?

        I think Pink should win many awards too. She is so underrated.

        • Middle_Kingdum

          Ha! Pink would kick little Qu Wanting’s ass.

      • Kiwi

        Like anyone cares about the deepness of the lyrics. I bet many of us here don’t even speak Mandarin.

        • Germandude

          So you are listening to her songs because of the nice melody and singing act, is that what you are saying?

          • Kiwi

            I’m not listening to her songs at all.

          • Germandude

            I know. I was just being sarcastic.

    • White tiger.

      She not bad.would defin tap her

    • 剑胆琴心

      not so good as you said…
      she is good at drag the voice…but her voice also easy to make people feel old and once hear then no more fresh …
      about looks, i keep my oipion…
      not my type.

      • Middle_Kingdum

        The song itself is crap, but I think she has a pretty voice and also really a cute girl. Don’t you think it is true, Bunny?

        • Hocketeer

          It’s all crap. And marketing. To pacify the masses.
          A further insult to the human spirit.

      • Repatriated

        You could do better?

    • Refractions_of_Error

      The whole package? Of what? You make her sound like a dope dealer.

  • linette lee

    I like her too. 范瑋琪

    Also, I like this one particular song from SHE. I like the guitar version. But I don’t like SHE.

  • MrT

    “yīn wèi wǒ zuì xiǎng yào de shì yì zhǎn dēng”
    yea nightmare that, took me all day to find a decent table lamp that didnt look like a chritsmas tree.

    • Nessquick Choco

      It took me 7 years and still not find :( You’re the choosen one :D

  • Nessquick Choco

    She got the same song writer as Bieber ? :-D

  • Claude

    The new voice of China’s working class..

    Gum Bleed! Yeah that’s right, I said Gum Bleed!

  • Gordon Gogodancer

    Would i shag you? Yes. Would i listen to you songs? No

    • YourSupremeCommander

      If she wants me to listen to her songs, I will say yes, but the only condition is to shag first, na mean?

    • Mighty曹

      How about listening to her song while shagging her? Fair compromise.

  • rollin wit 9’s

    这首歌不错

  • whyistitlikethis

    how evolution left chinese girls with legs that grow directly into the back, skipping the seat entirely? And why are their legs so short in average? I searched on google, but no answer…

    • Refractions_of_Error

      Yes, they are rather stunted and bow legged. I speak of the mindset.

      • Mighty曹

        Chinese girls wearing knee high boots is a major turn off.

        • Refractions_of_Error

          It is cheap. I have to keep reminding people that Julia Roberts was a WHORE in that Pretty Woman movie and is not the way to go to work everyday. Unless of course work entails the obvious..

          • Mighty曹

            Julia Roberts’ legs alone are taller than most Chinese girls.
            *They do look cute wearing Uggs.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            I think I will leave the comments below uncontested. I did reply but then deleted them. Looks better this way. Hahahah…

          • Mighty曹

            But that defeats the purpose! haha!

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Yeah you’re right. Supremo has disappeared or, logged in as robert rou.

            Either way, I’m back in the ring.

          • Mighty曹

            Interesting. Rober Rou = Suprehomo

          • Refractions_of_Error

            I think he has gone back to his cage to lick his wounds. Or to lick supremmasters wounds. Or…

          • Refractions_of_Error

            I find in mainland it is more a case of fashion over style. HK is totally different. Most ladies there have substance. I actually respect their attitudes in HK.

    • Mighty曹

      Yeah, why is it like that?

  • Repatriated

    Seriously, who “marches” when they walk? Look at the last pic.

  • Refractions_of_Error

    I wonder if she hacks and spits, speaks with her mouth full, with food I might add. She has an indolent expression and, a cruel face.

  • Refractions_of_Error

    Moderators- a question if I may. Why is it not offensive or, racist as some say, to generalize about chinese females having small breasts yet it is an issue to raise the issue of chinese male organs and their size.

    I wonder what the females have to say about this. Eattot? Linette? Any word from you?

    • Mighty曹

      Eattot, being a manly woman, may not care to provide an answer.

      • Robert Rou

        Lol, look at you. Picking on the some poor girl across, yet so proud. Your parents taught you well.

        • Mighty曹

          Lol, look at you. Defending the same ‘manly woman. Your parents must be siblings to have produced you to be attracted to inbreds.

          • Robert Rou

            Pathetic. Still circle jerking. If you talk concubines, that’s one thing. Incest and sodomy? Lol, that’s on you!

          • Mighty曹

            I’m not surprised you know the formal term for your existence.

            NOTE: Little girls use ‘Lol’.

        • Refractions_of_Error

          You attack the guy for no reason and now cry victim? What prompted you to jump out of your sleep and rush to the keyboard and go nuts? Or wait, wait, wait. You and supremo in the same room?

          Now it begins to make perverted sense.

          • Mighty曹

            I made an ass of him in the thread about how China failed to ‘teach a lesson’ to Vietnam. So he’s getting all personal. I hope that’s the only reason and nothing homosexual.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Oh yes, I recall how you verbally bitch slapped him. This Gimp is raging man..

          • Mighty曹

            He first called me ‘fucking clueless’ and an ‘amateur’.
            As a matter of fact, it was in the thread you started about the PLA. hahaha…

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Me? Again? LMAO…..

          • Mighty曹

            Yah, no wonder he hates you. LOL!

          • Refractions_of_Error

            I didn’t DO anything!

          • Mighty曹

            You started a topic that he thought he was an expert in.
            Now he’s butthurt by that thread.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            If he was butt hurt before, his just got rammed all ways tonight but the thing is I never addressed him directly. He just trolls. Then starts throwing toys out of the pram when he gets a roasting.

          • Mighty曹

            He must have had multiple orgasms in the 10 minutes that he was here. I’ll take your advice and just ignore him in the future. Why help him satisfy his sexual desire, right?

          • Refractions_of_Error

            I guess he likes it rough!

          • Mighty曹

            Hahaha.. apparently.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            He must be sobbing right now. I don’t get it. He pops up, curses people out, gets roughed up, and then runs back with his tail between his legs.

          • Mighty曹

            He better not come back with that cocky attitude of his. Well, just as China he did his little ‘scorch earth’ on his retreat. LOL!

          • Refractions_of_Error

            On another note. I seriously hope that Qu Wanting didn’t pay to get this article on CS. If she did? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

          • Mighty曹

            Yeah, I wonder how much CS has helped/hurt artists with exposure here.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            Qu Wanting will look at the comment volume tomorrow and think “wow they love me”

            Then she will read the comments.

            For now, goodnight sir. It certainly was a very entertaining evening!

          • Mighty曹

            That will leave her Wanting more. hahahahahaha…
            Goodnight as well, Sir. indeed, thanks to the Gimp.

          • Refractions_of_Error

            But you nailed it, I had to read up later on the detail and yes, gimp is clueless about most things.

            Gimp? Gimp?

            I think he’s gone. Imagine that, logging on to curse people out and then getting butt hurt and slinking off again.

    • Kai

      Who said it isn’t? Do you have any idea how many “Chinese men have small penis” comments haven’t been addressed on cS? Do you have any idea how much more prevalent “Chinese men have small penis” comments are compared to “Chinese females have small breasts” comments? Do you have any idea how much more malice is behind or associated with such comments?

      I get you’re trying to suggest bias, but your argument is based on too much false equivalence. Why didn’t we moderators raise the issue about Chinese men having “feminine” features in the comments a few posts back? Is the comments “tits are optional in China” widely received as an attack on the feminimity of Chinese women like comments about small penises are attacks on the masculinity of Chinese men? Are foreign women making the comments, maliciously ridiculing Chinese women as somehow less womanly than they are because on average they have smaller busts?
