Our Times OST Song – Hebe Tian ‘A Little Happiness (小幸运)’ – English Translation, Pinyin Lyrics, and Chinese Lyrics

Voiceover at beginning of MV:

It was only until much much later that we would realize, that when a girl says “I don’t care about you anymore”, she doesn’t actually hate you – rather, she really cares about you. Really, really cares about you.

Voiceover at end of MV:

Thank you for appearing in my youth. Thank you.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

I hear the rain dripping onto the green grass field

I hear the far away sound of the school bell signaling end of class

But I don’t hear the sound of your voice

Earnestly  calling my name

Back then when I fell in love with you, I still didn’t understand these feelings

Only after we parted did I feel  that you were unforgettable (T/N: lit. translation is carved into bones, engraved on heart)

Why didn’t I realize that meeting you

Was the best thing that ever happened to me in this life?

Perhaps at that time I was just busy laughing and crying

Busy chasing the shooting stars in the sky

It was only natural that I forgot

Who was silently protecting me through the wind and rain

It turns out you were the happiness I wanted to stay, above all

It turns out we were once so close to love

Then, the one who would defy the decisions of the universe for me

The one who accompanied me as we were drenched by rain

Each and every scene was with you  your untainted and selfless sincerity

Through you I came upon  happiness and good fortune

But I have already lost the right to have my face full of tears for you

But I sincerely wish that somewhere in the sky where I could not see

You opened up your wings

And met your destiny

How lucky/happy she will be (T/N: she = the guy’s “destined” lover </3)

Youth is a period of stumbling journeys

When we had a beauty that we only discovered later

I didn’t get the chance to show my gratitude to you for giving me the courage

To go back to being myself

Perhaps at that time I was just busy laughing and crying

Busy chasing the shooting stars in the sky

It was only natural that I forgot

Who was silently protecting me through the wind and rain

It turns out you were the happiness I wanted to stay, above all

It turns out we were once so close to love

Then, the one who would defy the decisions of the universe for me

The one who accompanied me as we were drenched by rain

Each and every scene was with you  your untainted and selfless sincerity

Through you I came upon  happiness and good fortune

But I have already lost the right to have my face full of tears for you

But I sincerely wish that somewhere in the sky where I could not see

You opened up your wings

And met your destiny (woah~)

How lucky/happy she will be

CHINESE LYRICS

我听见雨滴落在青青草地

我听见远方下课钟声响起

可是我没有听见你的声音

认真  呼唤我姓名

爱上你的时候还不懂感情

离别了才觉得刻骨   铭心

为什么没有发现遇见了你

是生命最好的事情

也许当时忙着微笑和哭泣

忙着追逐天空中的流行

人理所当然的忘记

是谁风里雨里一直默默守护在原地

原来你是我最想留住的幸运

原来我们和爱情曾经靠得那么近

那为我对抗世界的决定

那陪我淋的雨

一幕幕都是你  一尘不染的真心

与你相遇  好幸运

可我已失去为你泪流满面的权利

但愿在我看不到的天际

你张开了双翼

遇见你的注定

她会有多幸运

青春是段跌跌撞撞的旅行

拥有着后知后觉的美丽

来不及感谢是你给我勇气

让我能做回我自己

也许当时忙着微笑和哭泣

忙着追逐天空中的流行

人理所当然的忘记

是谁风里雨里一直默默守护在原地

原来你是我最想留住的幸运

原来我们和爱情曾经靠得那么近

那为我对抗世界的决定

那陪我淋的雨

一幕幕都是你  一尘不染的真心

与你相遇  好幸运

可我已失去为你泪流满面的权利

但愿在我看不到的天际

你张开了双翼

遇见你的注定 (woah~)

她会有多幸运

I’m such a sucker for C/TW-drama OSTs TuT. They’re so full of feels~~~

You Are the Apple of My Eye OST Song – Those Bygone Years Chinese Lyrics, Pinyin Lyrics, and English Translation

This was another song that I heard and fell in love with when I went to China.  It’s from a Taiwanese film, with the really weird title of You Are the Apple of My Eye.  The Chinese title is much more interesting, 那些年,我们一起追的女孩, which translated literally means “those years, the girls we chased after together”.  I think it’s cute hehe 🙂  Anywhoo, I first heard this song on the plane to china, then in the taxi to our hotel, and then in a restaurant, and it drove me craazyyy that I couldn’t find out what song it was.  But then I was walking along a street and heard it playing in a stall, and I asked the lady behind the counter and she told me.  THANK YOU, MISS.  Anyways, the guy who sings it is pretty popular in China (although I’ll stick with my EXO-M hehe).  This is 那些年 – Na Xie Nian – Those Bygone Years, by 胡夏 – Hu Xia

The Hunger Games Movie Trailer

I CAN’T STOP WATCHING IT.  I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE TO COME OUT OHMYLORD IT LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER THAN I EXPECTED.

I was super mehh about the casting, so I kind of counted this out.  I was gonna watch it, but I didn’t think I would like it.  OH HOW WRONG I WAS.  THIS LOOKS FRICKING AMAZING.

X-Men: First Class – Again

     I watched X-Men: First Class again yesterday.  I love this kid.  🙂

X-Men: First Class

I. LOVE. THIS. MOVIE.  !!!!!!!!

Many things made this movie very good.  For one thing, James McAvoy is in it, and he is quite attractive.  Quite.  Also, being a prequel, it explained how things came to be, setting things up for X-MenX2: X-Men United, and X-Men: The Last Stand.

I really liked watching this because it shows Erik (Magneto) becoming good friends with Charles Xavier.  It shows that no matter what, their difference in opinion about how to deal with humans vs. mutants couldn’t be reconciled, and it is what led to the creation of Magneto’s Brotherhood vs. Professor X’s X-Men.  (I also thought it was quite clever how they included the origin of the name “X-Men” at the end of the movie).  It answered many questions, like how Professor X got into his wheelchair, why he started his school.  And also one thing that I didn’t know was that Raven/Mystique was like a sister to Charles!  It made me really sad once we found that out because when you think of the trilogy, Mystique is Magneto’s right hand woman, and so she inevitably sees Professor X.  Although the two weren’t related by blood, Charles gave Raven a home when they were still young children, and he watched over her as if she were his real sister.  That kind of bond is quite strong, but it was still broken.  And then having to revisit that bond each time you see the other person?  It made me sad thinking about it.  😦

This movie also had plenty of funny moments.  I was laughing pretty hard at some parts (although it’s not too hard to make me laugh, so maybe my opinion isn’t entirely accurate, but whatever).  And the action is great.  Really great.  🙂

I also thought that it was funny how they got Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and the person who plays the older Mystique in the trilogies to come back and kind of reprise their roles.  And Wolverine’s one line in this movie….  Haha.  Funny.

I am definitely going to be watching this movie again, after I refresh and watch the aforementioned trilogy first.
