传奇 (chuánqí) legend

传奇 (chuánqí) is one of my favorite songs. It is about a type of beautiful and vague love, a love happens in one person's mind when s/he just see another one in the crowd. S/he feels that they have met before and falls in love and can never forget that short but specially charming experience, even maybe the two will never meet again.




歌词(gēcí): 
lyrics
zhǐshì  yīnwèi  zài rénqún   zhōng duō kànle  nǐ  yīyǎn
只 是   因为  在  人群       中    多   看了 你  一眼 
Since I saw you in the crowd one day


zài  yě  méinéng  wàngdiào nǐ   róngyán 
再 也  没   能    忘掉       你  容颜 

I can never forget your face


mèngxiǎng zhe ǒurán néng yǒuyītiān zài xiāngjiàn 
   梦想      着  偶然    能  有一天   再   相见 

Dreaming about we may meet again by coincidence someday

cóngcǐ Wǒ kāishǐ gūdān sīniàn
从此   我  开始  孤单  思念
My longing for you would never fade away

xiǎng nǐ shí nǐ zài tiānbiān 
 想   你 时 你在  天边

Think of you, but you are so far away 


xiǎngnǐ shí nǐ zài yǎnqián
 想你   时 你 在 眼前
Think of you, hope I can see you in my eye


xiǎngnǐ shí nǐ zài nǎohǎi 
 想你   时 你 在 脑海 

Think of you, you are always in my mind


xiǎngnǐ shí nǐ zài xīntián 
 想你   时 你 在 心田

Think of you, you are always in my heart
 nìngyuàn xiāngxìn wǒmen qiánshì yǒu yuē 
  宁愿       相信    我们     前世   有约

Believe that we had our promise in our last life


jīnshēng de àiqíng gùshi búhuì zài gǎibiàn
今生     的  爱情  故事 不会  再  改变 
Our love story will never change in this one


nìngyuàn yòng zhè yīshēng děng nǐ  fāxiàn 
  宁愿      用   这    一生    等   你 发现 

I will wait for you in my whole life


Wǒ yīzhí  zài nǐ  shēnpáng cóngwèi zǒu yuǎn 
我  一直 在 你   身旁       从未     走远

Wish you know that our hearts have always been together




Here is another female vocal version of this song. The singer is also my favorite, 王菲(Wángfēi), also known as Faye Wang. Her voice is really beautiful.
