Translating the lyrics of Yen-J's song "我喜欢,不我爱" (with music video)

When I was learning english, one of my favorite things to do was getting a song i like and try to translate it. Even if it wasn’t right. Even if i spelled it all wrong. I could always check on dictionary later, anyway. hehe.

So I decided to do that with chinese too. I try to get some songs I like and try to translate it. I absolutely love how Yen-J's song "我喜欢,不我爱" sounds and I decided to actually know what it’s saying! Of course I know that the translation is pretty poor, since I did almost all of it looking at the dictionary. So, if anyone out there knows chinese and it’s kind enough to check it and see what I’m doing right or wrong.. please feel free to correct me! =]

And no.. I didn’t write the part in chinese.. i just copy.. but i translated all by myself! Well, with a little help of the dictionary.. =]

Here is a link to the song on youtube or if in China, you can watch here on youku

 


wo xi huan ni de yan
kan zhe wo de yan
wo xi huan ni de lian
tie zhe wo de lian

wo xi huan ni de shou
qian zhe wo de shou
wo xi huan ni de kou
wen zhe wo de kou
shi jian zai gai bian
ni bu yao gai bian

yin wei wo hen ai ni
bu xiang yao ni fang qi ai qing
wo ai ni zhen de hen ai ni
suo yi xiang
jiu zhe yang ji xu ai xia qu

shi jian zai gai bian
ni bu yao gai bian

yin wei wo hen ai ni
bu xiang yao ni fang qi ai qing
you qi zhe duan de lai bu yi
wo ai ni zhen de hen ai ni
suo yi xiang
jiu zhe yang ji xu ai xia qu

yin wei wo hen ai ni
bu xiang yao ni fang qi ai qing
you qi zhe duan de lai bu yi
wo ai ni zhen de hen ai ni
suo yi xiang
jiu zhe yang ji xu ai xia qu

ba zheng ge shi jie dou gei ni

我喜歡妳的眼 看著我的眼
我喜歡妳的臉 貼著我的臉

我喜歡妳的手 牽著我的手
我喜歡妳的口 吻著我的口
時間在改變 妳不要改變

因為我很愛妳 不想要妳放棄愛情
尤其這段得來不易
我愛妳 真的是很愛妳 所以想
就這樣繼續愛下去

時間在改變 妳不要改變

因為我很愛妳 不想要妳放棄愛情
尤其這段得來不易
我愛妳 真的是很愛妳 所以想
就這樣繼續愛下去

因為我很愛妳 不想要妳放棄愛情
尤其這段得來不易
我愛妳 真的是很愛妳 所以想
就這樣繼續愛下去

因為我很愛妳 不想要妳放棄愛情
尤其這段得來不易
我愛妳 真的是很愛妳 所以想

Here's my translation.   

I like your eyes

Look at my eyes

I like your face

Close to my face

I like your hand

Hold my hand

I like your mouth

Kiss my mouth

Time changes

Don’t you ever change

Because I will ever love you this much

I don’t believe you would ever ask me to renounce this love

I really love you very much (?)

I wish this to continue this way (?)

 

The rest of it is pretty much repetition, so I didn’t repeat all of it all over again. Well.. let me know how right/wrong i am doing, please!

Let's take these four lines as an example:

Your translation

因為我很愛妳 不想要妳放棄愛情
尤其這段得來不易
我愛妳 真的是很愛妳 所以想
就這樣繼續愛下去

Because I will ever love you this much

I don’t believe you would ever ask me to renounce this love

I really love you very much (?)

I wish this to continue this way (?)

I will translate them as:

因為我很愛妳 不想要妳放棄愛情

For I love you a lot, and don't want you to give up love

尤其這段得來不易

Especially this relationship which did not come easily

我愛妳 真的是很愛妳 所以想

I love you, truly love you so much; so I am thinking

就這樣繼續愛下去

To continue this way to  let  love go on and on ...

You did a good job, keep up good work, if you have any question, let me know.
