Another song by Wang Feng. This song was made for the movie “Monkey King: Hero is back” which is highly recommended for Chinese learners who are looking for some easier Chinese movies to watch. While most of the song is quite straightforward, the middle area is tricky and needs to be listened to several times. The rest of the song features lots of useful verbs and a lot of measure words that can be used instead of 个.

Key Words

勇敢 – This means brave, with 勇敢的心 being easily translated to meaning “Brave Heart”. If you were wondering, this is also the translation of the movie Braveheart starring Mel Gibson.

方向 – Meaning direction, the singer is talking about finding his way back home “家的方向”.

布满 – To be covered or filled with. For example, 由于睡眠不足,他两眼睛布满血丝. His eyes are bloodshot because his didn’t get enough sleep.

Music Video

This video is taken from the movie, try not to be distracted by the movie and instead focus upon the lyrics below while you listen.

 

勇敢的心 Song Lyrics

(Hover over the Chinese for pinyin)

我不是一块石头
也不是一滴眼泪
我只是一只小鸟 – despite what the translation says, he is actually referring to a small 小 bird 鸟.
在寻找家的方向
我不是一粒沙子
也不是一声轻叹
我只是一个孩子
在寻找爱的怀抱
这是飞翔的感觉
这是自由的感觉
在撒满鲜血的天空迎著风飞舞
凭著一颗永不哭泣勇敢的心
这是奔跑的感觉
就像挣脱的感觉
在布满利刃的大地抬着头狂奔
凭著一颗永不哭泣勇敢的心
这不是一种幻想
也不是一种痴狂
这就是我坚信的
灿烂生命的模样

Thanks for listening
