New song!!

Ah… the very first English song on my blog! This is a now not so new song by Daniel Bedingfield (i’m not sure if he ever released another album after his 1st) but i like the tune a lot. Heh. Enjoy…

The title is If You’re Not the One.

Oh wait… i just googled… he’s still in the market… www.danielbedingfield.com (what a name!)

Anyway, it’s been an exciting day today… (or rather yesterday)… we closed a penthouse, i served a 93.3 DJ (and he was really really funny & friendly! I hope he buys the unit! 😛 I’m a new fan!), and i can expect a law suit coming up? Sigh…

遗失的美好

海的思念绵延不绝
终于和天在地平线交会
爱如果走得够远
应该也会跟幸福相见

承诺常常很像蝴蝶
美丽的飞盘旋然后不见
但我相信你给我的誓言
就像一定会来的春天

我始终带着你爱的微笑
一路上寻找我遗失的美好
不小心当泪滑过嘴角
就用你握过的手抹掉

再多的风景也从不停靠
只一心寻找我遗失的美好
有的人说不清哪里好
但就是谁都替代不了

在最开始的那一秒有些事早已经注定要到老
虽然命运爱开玩笑真心会和真心遇到

Really like the lyrics of this song. Couldn’t quite decide whose version to put on my blog – Kelly Poon’s, or Zhang Shao Han. In the end, i decided to go with the former… smaller file size… haha.

家 – Home

Couldn’t decide to post the English or Chinese version of this song online… in the end, i found a bilingual version of the song… but for the English portion of the song, only the chorus is sung. The lyrics are below…

HOME (National Day 1998) sung by Kit Chan

Whenever I am feeling low

I look around me and I know

There’s a place that will stay within me

Wherever I may choose to go

I will always recall the city

Know every street and shore

Sail down the river which brings us life

Winding through my Singapore

Chorus:

This is Home, truly

Where I know I must be

Where my dreams wait for me

Where that river always flows

This is home, surely

As my senses tell me

This is where I won’t be alone

For this is where I know it’s home

When there are troubles to go through

We’ll find a way to start anew

There is comfort in the knowledge

That homes about its people too

So we’ll build our dreams together

Just like we’ve done before

Just like the river which brings us life

There’ll always be Singapore

Chorus(repeat 2X)

This is Home, truly

Where I know I must be

Where my dreams wait for me

Where that river always flows

This is home, surely

As my senses tell me

This is where I won’t be alone

For this is where I know it’s home

(For this is where I know, I’m HOME)

每一次我感到徬徨
不自禁就会回头望
我知道心中有个地方
一定会有一盏灯

照亮每一颗黑暗的心房
指引未来方向
沿着生命河流向前航
就能登陆理想

我的家收藏
我的欢喜悲伤
只要点燃希望
梦就会自由飞翔

我的家给我
一双坚定翅膀
我的梦不论在何方
一生的爱唯有家(世世代代温暖的家)

再也不会感到徬徨
不会再失意回头望
我要用心中一点烛光
燃放千万户辉煌

要让繁华的城市更灿烂
世界和平共享
全凭生命河流来导航
一起登陆理想

Majulah Singapura

Since i’m on the topic of Singapore…. here’s the national anthem… heh. Honestly, i sing it by pure memory of the sounds of the words… never did bother to remember the meaning of each line. But since i’m feeling patriotic now… here are the lyrics in Malay, and the English translation. 🙂

MAJULAH SINGAPURA
Mari kita rakyat Singapura
Sama-sama menuju bahagia
Cita-cita kita yang mulia
Berjaya Singapura

Marilah kita bersatu
Dengan semangat yang baru
Semua kita berseru
Majulah Singapura
Majulah Singapura

ONWARD SINGAPORE
(English Translation)

Come, fellow Singaporeans
Let us progress towards happiness together
May our noble aspiration bring
Singapore success

Come, let us unite
In a new spirit
Let our voices soar as one
Onward Singapore
Onward Singapore
