Here is a duet that features two well known and popular artists from taiwan and hongkong respectively, Wubai(伍佰) and Karen Mok(莫文蔚)I’ve been a fan of wubaiarguably taiwan’s greatest singer-songwriter since his music was first introduced to me ten years ago by a taiwanese friend. Although many of the younger crowd now regard him as old hat he is still a favourite for many that grew up listening to his music. Karen Mok in this song is just to die for, well she does it for me anyway;-)

I’ve included my own translation, however, any suggestions for improvement will be well received.

It is a great sounding track, a modern mix of ballad with heavily distorted guitar rhythms and lead riffs backed by deep bass rhythm and drum beat, as well as convincing vocals. 百度一下

 

坚强的理由 jian1qiang2deli3you3

 

慢慢的流  掩盖不住的口

Slowly trickling, unable to conceal the wound

破裂在我的心头

cracked open in my heart

要说些什么

What is there to say

你早已不在乎

You stopped caring long ago

无法接受  倾而尽出的痛

Unable to accept, the pouring pain

泪水不停的滴落

Dripping tears that won’t stop

还有些什么

What else is there

你早已不在乎

You stopped caring long ago

 

 

爱上的你

My love

将一切都抹去

erase everything

我静静悄悄默默淡淡的止住呼吸

I quietly, stealthily, silently, weakly hold back my breath

是这样吧

It’s like this

我知道你要离开我

I know you will leave me

却无法去停止

And I can’t hold back

让眼泪掉下来

Giving in to tears

(music)

爱上的你

将一切都抹去

我静静悄悄默默淡淡的止住呼吸

是这样吧

我知道你要离开我

却无法去停止

让眼泪掉下来

 

你说以後

You say that afterwards

爱情只是寄托

Love is merely a commitment

我该相信些什么

What should I believe

我现在需要

Right now I need

安静的角落

A place of peace and quiet.

我再也没有

I won’t even have

坚强的理由

A reason to be strong

坚强的理由

坚强的理由

坚强的理由
