Learn Chinese Through Songs #12 – Invisible Wings

Invisible Wings (隐形的翅膀) by Angela Chang (张韶涵). This song is from the Taiwanese singer Angela Chang, and it’s a nice, easy-going pop song, with really uplifting lyrics.

The basic message is that the singer has a pair of invisible wings, so she can be strong and conquer over everything. The video may be all about the singer, but the lyrics are slow and fairly easy to learn, so this is a good song to have in your karaoke arsenal!

Lyrics in pinyin, simplified Chinese characters and English translation.

měi yī cì dōu zài páihuái gūdān zhōng jiānqiáng
每一次 都 在 徘徊 孤单 中 坚强
Every time I am wavering and lonely I am strong

měi yī cì jiù suàn hěn shòushāng yě bù shǎn lèi guāng
每一次 很 受伤 也 不 闪 泪光
Every time, even if I feel very hurt, my tears do not flicker.

wǒ zhī dào wǒ yī zhí yǒu shuāng yǐn xíng de chì bǎng
我 知道 我 一直 有双 隐形 的 翅膀
I know that I have a pair of invisible wings

dài wǒ fēi fēi guò jué wàng
带 我 飞 飞过 绝望
To take me flying, flying over the dispair.

bù qù xiǎng tāmen yōng yǒu měi lì de tài yang
不 去 想 他们 拥有 美丽 的 太阳
I don’t think about the beautiful sunshine they have

wǒ kàn jiàn měi tiān de xī yáng yě huì yǒu biàn huà
我 看见 每天 的 夕阳 也 会 有 变化
I see that the sunset changes every day

wǒ zhī dào wǒ yī zhí yǒu shuāng yǐn xíng de chì bǎng
我 知道 我 一直 有双 隐形 的 翅膀
I know that I have a pair of invisible wings

dài wǒ fēi gěi wǒ xī wàng
带我飞给我 希望
To take me flying and give me hope

wǒ zhōngyú kàndào suǒyǒu mèngxiǎng dōu kāihuā
我终于看到所有梦想都开花
At last, I see that all my dreams have come to bloom

zhuīzhú de niánqīng gē shēng duō liáoliàng
追逐的年轻歌声多嘹亮
The song of youth that I was pursing is loud and clear

wǒ zhōngyú áoxiáng, yòngxīn níngwàng bù hàipà
我终于翱翔 用心凝望不害怕
At last I soar, and I look down carefully without feeling afraid

nàli huì yǒu fēng, jiù fēi duō yuǎn ba
那里会有风 就飞多远吧
Wherever there is wind, I will fly far away

yǐnxíng de chìbǎng ràng mèng hěn jiǔ bǐ tiān cháng
隐形的翅膀让梦恒久比天长
My invisible wings made my dreams eternal, longer than heaven

liú yī gè yuànwàng ràng zìjǐ xiǎngxiàng
留一个愿望让自己想象
Leaving a wish so I can imagine.
