一无所有 Song Lyrics

(Hover over the Chinese for pinyin)

我曾经问个不休 妳何时跟我走
可妳却总是笑我 一无所有
我要给妳我的追求 还有我的自由
可妳却总是笑我 一无所有

喔 妳何时跟我走 喔 妳何时跟我走

脚下这地在走 身边那水在流
可妳却总是笑我 一无所有
为何妳总笑个没够 为何我总要追求
难道在妳面前我永远 是一无所有

喔 妳何时跟我走 喔 妳何时跟我走

(脚下这地在走 身边那水在流 脚下这地在走 身边那水在流)

告诉妳我等了很久 告诉妳我最后的要求
我要抓起妳的双手 妳这就跟我走
这时妳的手在颤抖 这时妳的泪在流
莫非妳是正在告诉我 妳爱我一无所有

喔 妳这就跟我走 喔 妳这就跟我走

(脚下这地在走 身边那水在流 脚下这地在走 身边那水在流)

喔 妳这就跟我走 喔 妳这就跟我走
喔 妳这就跟我走 喔 妳这就跟我走
喔 妳这就跟我走 喔 妳这就跟我走

What did you think of this song?

Would you like to see more of this style song? I tend to avoid putting too much rock music as it can be a bit harder to understand when compared to slower melodic songs, but there is certainly a lot of Chinese to learn in this song. Let me know what you thought.
