A haunted Chinese love song 歡顏 Huan yan Joyful countenance 齊豫 Qi yu: lyrics, pinyin, English translation, quotes of haunted, Taylor Swift Haunted lyrics

齊豫 – 歡顏


歡顏
Huān yán
Joyful countenance

齊豫
Qí yù

飄落著淡淡愁 一絲絲的回憶
飄[piāo] 落[lùo] 著 [zhe] 淡淡[dàn dàn] 愁[chóu]  一[yì] 絲[sī] 絲[sī] 的[de] 回[huí] 憶[yì]
Drifting down faint melancholy. A trace of memories.

如幻如夢如真 弦輕撥聲低吟
如[rú] 幻[huàn] 如[rú] 夢[mèng] 如[rú] 真[zhēn]  弦[xián] 輕[qīng] 撥[bō] 聲[shēng] 低[dī] 吟[yín]
It is like fantasy, like dreams, and like realness. Gently pluck the strings and croon.

那是歌 啦啦啦
那[nǎ] 是[shì] 歌[gē]  啦[lā] 啦[lā] 啦[lā]
That is a song, la la la …

只要你輕輕一笑 我的心就迷醉
只要[zhǐ yào] 你[nǐ] 輕輕[qīng qīng] 一[yí] 笑[xiào]  我的[wǒ de] 心[xīn] 就[jiù] 迷[mí] 醉[zuì]
As long as you lightly smile. My heart right away will be intoxicated.

只有你的歡顏笑語
只有[zhǐ yǒu] 你[nǐ] 的[de] 歡[huān] 顏[yán] 笑[xiào] 語[yǔ]
Only your joyous countenance and laughing words.

伴我在漫漫長途有所依
伴[bàn] 我[wǒ] 在[zài] 漫[màn] 漫[màn] 長途[cháng tú] 有所[yǒu suǒ] 依[yī]
Accompany me on the endlessly long road, so that I have somewhat to rely on.

春雨秋霜歲月無情 海枯石爛形無痕
春[chūn] 雨[yǔ] 秋[qiū] 霜[shuāng] 歲月[suì yuè] 無情[wú qíng]  海[hǎi] 枯[kū] 石[dàn] 爛[làn] 形[xíng] 無[wú] 痕[hén]
Spring rains, autumn frost, passing of time is ruthless. Sea turned dry and stone got rotten, and the shape of appearance became untraceable.

只有你的歡顏笑語
只有[zhǐ yǒu] 你[nǐ] 的[de] 歡[huān] 顏[yán] 笑[xiào] 語[yǔ]
Only your joyous countenance and laughing words.

伴我在漫漫長途有所依
伴[bàn] 我[wǒ] 在[zài] 漫[màn] 漫[màn] 長途[cháng tú] 有所[yǒu suǒ] 依[yī]
Accompany me on the endlessly long road, so that I have somewhat to rely on.

飄落著冷冷清 萬縷縷的懷念
飄[piāo] 落[lùo] 著冷[lěng] 冷[lěng] 情[qīng]  萬[wàn] 縷[lǚ] 縷[lǚ] 的[de] 懷念[huái niàn]
Drifting down coldness and quietness. Ten thousand threads of reminisce.

如幻如夢如真 弦輕撥聲低吟
如[rú] 幻[huàn] 如[rú] 夢[mèng] 如[rú] 真[zhēn]  弦[xián] 輕[qīng] 撥[bō] 聲[shēng] 低[dī] 吟[yín]
It is like fantasy, like dreams, like realness. Gently pluck the strings and croon.

那是歌 啦啦啦
那[nǎ] 是[shì] 歌[gē]  啦[lā] 啦[lā] 啦[lā]
That is a song, la la la …

Translator’s note: I think this song is about the singer’s remembering the one she loves who has long died. The beginning melody gives me spooky feelings, yet it is very beautiful, like a song in a memory floating dream — sweet haunted sad love song I guess.
According to internet search, this was the theme song from “Your Smiling Face” in 胡慧中 Hu Hui Zhong’s first film in 1980.

Quotes about haunted:

“Nature is a haunted house–but Art–is a house that tries to be haunted.”
― Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems

“I missed you, Angel. Not one day went by that I didn’t feel you missing from my life. You haunted me to the point that I began to believe Hank had gone back on his oath and killed you. I couldn’t escape you and I didn’t want to. You tortured me, but it was better than losing you.”
― Becca Fitzpatrick, Silence

“If we can forgive what has been done to us . . .

If we can forgive what we’ve done to others . . .

If we can leave all of our stories behind. Our being
villians or victims.

Only then can we maybe rescue the world.

But we still sit here, waiting to be saved. While we’re
still victims, hoping to be discovered while we suffer.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Haunted

“Come on, come on don’t leave me like this
I thought I had you figured out
Something’s gone terribly wrong
Won’t finish what you started
Come on, come on don’t leave me like this
I thought I had you figured out
Can’t breathe whenever you’re gone can’t go back
I’m haunted”
― Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift: Speak Now

“We’re all of us haunted and haunting.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby

“To live is to be haunted.”
― Philip K. Dick, Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said
