I am

This is a song from the “Suddenly Seventeen” movie soundtrack. The Chinese lyrics are poetic and nostalgic! I hope you get the gist from my less-than-poetic translation :-).

 

黑夜而闪耀 我                  Shining in the night, I am
流云却不走 我                  Passing clouds won’t overwhelm me, I am
转眼就开花 我                  Blooming in a blink of an eye, I am
骄傲当时的 我                  Arrogance of that moment, I was

 
[Chorus]

究竟有多少 我我              How many I am are there? I am
谁在寻找谁 我我              Who is looking for who I am? I am
拉扯我 紧握着我              Hold onto me, hug me
如何拥抱 唯一的我         How to embrace the only me

 

张望了结果 我                 Looking for the ultimate I am
恨不得如果 我                 I can’t wait for I am
当我终于告别 我            And when I finally bid farewell to me
才让我再遇见 我            That I finally meet me.

 

原来我一直 爱我             I have always loved me
再多坎坷都 伴着             Even as troubles accompany me
多么感激 那个我             How grateful for that I was
为回忆 唱着 将来的歌      From memory, singing songs for the future

 

世上就一个 我我              In this world, there is only one I am

 

A bit of reflection as we head to the weekend?
