Jay Chou: Rainbow

I am very sorry for these months of absence (I must say I have a very good reason for not posting so often). Thanks to those who keep dropping by and leaving comments.

I am a big fan of Jay Chou. Today I'm posting his song Cai Hong (Rainbow) which can be found in his previous work, 我很忙 (On the Run) and was featured as the 2nd single of that album. If you spot any mistakes in the Chinese or in the pinyin let me know (I am using now a new tool for annotating Chinese, ZDT, and as most annotation tools out there it sometimes changes the pinyin).


彩虹
Cai Hong
Rainbow
..

哪里有彩虹告诉我
能不能把我的愿望还给我
为什么天这么安静
所有雲都跑到我这里

nǎ li yǒu cǎi hong gào su wǒ
néng bù néng bà wǒ de yuàn wàng hái gěi wǒ
wèi shén me tiān zhè me ān jìng
suǒ yǒu yún dōu pǎo dào wǒ zhè lǐ

Where is the rainbow, tell me
can't you give me back my wish?
Why is the sky so quiet
all the clouds are coming to me


有没有口罩一个给我
释怀说了太多就成真不了
也许时间是一种解药
也是我现在正服下的毒药

yǒu méi yǒu kǒu zhào yī gè gěi wǒ
shì huái shuo le tài duō jiù chéng zhēn bù liǎo
yě xǔ shí jiān shì yī zhòng jiě yao
yě shì wǒ xiàn zài zhèng fú xìa dí dú yào

Is there a mask you can give me?
We can get nothing out of recalling too much what was said
Maybe the time is a kind of cure
and at the same time it is the first poison I am taking


看不见你的笑我怎么睡得着
你的身影这么近我却抱不到
没有地球太阳还是会绕
没有理由我也能自己走

kàn bú jiàn nǐ de xiào wǒ zěn me shuì děi zhāo
nǐ de shēn yǐng zhè me jìn wǒ què bào bù dào
méi yǒu dì qiú tài yáng hái shì hui rào
méi yǒu lǐ yóu wǒ yě néng zì jǐ zǒu

I cannot see your smile, who am I supposed to sleep?
Your image is so close to me, but I can't get to hold it
The Sun can still go round without Earth
There's no reason why I couldn't walk alone


你要离开我知道很简单
你说依赖是我们的阻碍
就算放开那能不能别没收我的爱
当作我最后才明白

nǐ yāo lí kāi wǒ zhī dao hěn jiǎn dān
nǐ shuo yī lài shì wǒ men dí zǔ ài
jiù suàn fàng kāi nà néng bù néng biè mò shōu wǒ de ài
dàng zuò wǒ zuì hòu cái míng bai

You want to leave, I know it is quite simple.
You say dependece is what blocks us
Given that this is breaking up can't you still receive my love
Seeming I am the last to understand


有没有口罩一个给我
释怀说了太多就成真不了
也许时间是一种解药
也是我现在正服下的毒药

yǒu méi yǒu kǒu zhào yī gè gěi wǒ
shì huái shuì le tài duō jiù chéng zhēn bù liǎo
yě xǔ shí jiān shì yī zhòng jiě yao
yě shì wǒ xiàn zài zhèng fú xìa dí dú yào

Is there a mask...

看不见你的笑我怎么睡得着
你的身影这么近我却抱不到
没有地球太阳还是会绕
没有理由我也能自己走

kàn bú jiàn nǐ dí xiào wǒ zěn me shuì děi zhāo
nǐ dí shēn yǐng zhè me jìn wǒ què bào bù dào
méi yǒu dì qiú tài yáng hái shì hui rào
méi yǒu lǐ yóu wǒ yě néng zì jǐ zǒu

I cannot see your smile, who am I supposed...

你要离开我知道很简单
你说依赖是我们的阻碍
就算放开那能不能别没收我的爱
当作我最后才明白

nǐ yāo lí kāi wǒ zhī dao hěn jiǎn dān
nǐ shuo yī lài shì wǒ men dí zǔ ài
jiù suàn fàng kāi nà néng bù néng biè mò shōu wǒ de ài
dàng zuò wǒ zuì hòu cái míng bai

看不见你的笑
要我怎么睡得着
你的身影这么近我却抱不到
没有地球太阳开始环绕环绕
没有理由我也能自己走掉
是我说了太多就成真不了
也许时间是一种解药解药
也是我现在正服下的毒药

kàn bú jiàn nǐ de xiào
yāo wǒ zěn me shuì děi zhāo
nǐ dí shēn yǐng zhè me jìn wǒ què bào bù dào
méi yǒu dì qiú tài yáng kāi shǐ huán rào huán rào
méi yǒu lǐ yóu wǒ yě néng zì jǐ zǒu diào
shì wǒ shuì le tài duō jiù chéng zhēn bù liǎo
yě xǔ shí jiān shì yī zhòng jiě yao jiě yao
yě shì wǒ xiàn zài zhèng fú xìa dí dú yào

你要离开我知道很简单
你说依赖是我们的阻碍
就算放开那能不能别没收我的爱
当作我最后才明白

nǐ yāo lí kāi wǒ zhī dao hěn jiǎn dān
nǐ shuì yī lài shì wǒ men dí zǔ ài
jiù suàn fàng kāi nà néng bù néng biè mò shōu wǒ de ài
dàng zuò wǒ zuì hòu cái míng bai

Yo. I like Jay Chou also but he seems little to pop for my tastes. Do you know of some more chinese hip hop stars?
