One of the first songs I ever learnt when I first started studying Chinese. While it probably wasn’t the best choice for a beginner to start with, I really enjoyed listening to it and it definitely encouraged me to continue learning. Sometimes it is best to study things that you are interested in, even if they are above your level.
If you want to look up the singer then his name is 汪峰.
曾经 – Refers to something having already happened in the past. 我曾经在英国住过四年 meaning I lived in England for four years.
怒放 – In full bloom. Most commonly used in a way such as 森林花怒放 meaning ‘the forests flowers are in bloom’. As seen in this song, can also be used to describe life.
无边 – No boundaries or borders. This is commonly used with 无边无际 to refer to something vast and boundless. Such as 无边无际地大海 being a boundless ocean. It is very good when you want to be descriptive and is used in songs and stories a lot.
Listen and see how much of the Chinese you can understand before looking at the lyrics below.
