Something Different…

for a change, here’s a youtube video, now that my blog (wp2.7) supports it, and with some pinyin and translations too:

Translation: the translation is partially literal, so its not the best translation…

Stefanie Sun Yan Zi – Different
Due to the (workings of the) gravity of the earth, I can’t escape (?)
As I travel around to the other parts of earth, nobody recognises me
People on the street, we are so similar, yet many aspects still differs

chorus:
(i need) a little bit more, a little bit more, of my own space
(i need) a little less of a (need for) perfect appearance,
there’s no need for a change, it’s my little secret
more days of, (more days of,) of different experiences
one day less of classical(traditional?) views (?)
oh~ it’s my little secret

squatting by the road side, humming my song, about whats on my heart
being happy or sad, by the pavements, there’s nothing to cover up (or pretend),
and there’s nothing to keep up, with people who are not “in tune”,
you can have different feelings (?)

chorus2:
(i need) a little bit more, a little bit more, of a breath of fresh air and space
(i need) a little less of an overflow of compromise(understanding?),
(I’ve) left my “comfort zone” , it’s my little secret
more days of, (more days of,) of different dangers
one day less of breaking free of rules
oh~ it’s my little secret

bridge:
what do you have? what did i lose?
we both want freedom and independence
and we’re so different, but yet so similar,
(which is why)we’re complete
