singer 崔健
"Nothing to my name" 一无所有:






我曾经问个不休
Wǒ céngjīng wèn gè bùxiū
I have asked endlessly,

你何时跟我走
nǐ héshí gēn wǒ zǒu
when will you go with me?

可你却总是笑我,一无所有
Kě nǐ què zǒng shì xiào wǒ, yīwúsuǒyǒu
But you always laugh at me, for having nothing to my name.

我要给你我的追求
Wǒ yào gěi nǐ wǒ de zhuīqiú
I want to give you my dreams [goals],

还有我的自由
hái yǒu wǒ de zìyóu
and my freedom,

可你却总是笑我,一无所有
kě nǐ què zǒng shì xiào wǒ, yīwúsuǒyǒu
but you always laugh at me, for having nothing.



噢……你何时跟我走
Ō……nǐ héshí gēn wǒ zǒu
Oh! When will you go with me?

噢……你何时跟我走
Ō……nǐ héshí gēn wǒ zǒu
Oh! When will you go with me?




脚下这地在走
Jiǎoxià zhè de zài zǒu
The ground beneath my feet is moving,

身边那水在流
shēnbiān nà shuǐ zài liú
the water by my side is flowing,

可你却总是笑我,一无所有
Kě nǐ què zǒng shì xiào wǒ, yīwúsuǒyǒu
but you always laugh at me, for having nothing.

为何你总笑个没够
Wèihé nǐ zǒng xiào gè méi gòu
Why is your laughter never enough?
[Why does your laughter never end?]

为何我总要追求
Wèihé wǒ zǒng yào zhuīqiú
Why do I always have to chase you?

难道在你面前
Nándào zài nǐ miànqián
Could it be that in front of you

我永远是一无所有
wǒ yǒngyuǎn shì yīwúsuǒyǒu
I forever have nothing to my name.



噢……你何时跟我走
Ō……nǐ héshí gēn wǒ zǒu
Oh! When will you go with me?

噢……你何时跟我走
Ō……nǐ héshí gēn wǒ zǒu
Oh! When will you go with me?




告诉你我等了很久
Gàosu nǐ wǒ děngle hěnjiǔ
I tell you I’ve waited a long time,

告诉你我最后的要求
gàosu nǐ wǒ zuìhòu de yāoqiú
I give you my final request,

我要抓起你的双手
wǒ yào zhuā qǐ nǐ de shuāng shǒu
I want to take your hands,

你这就跟我走
nǐ zhè jiù gēn wǒ zǒu
and then you’ll go with me.

这时你的手在颤抖
Zhèshí nǐ de shǒu zài chàndǒu
This time your hands are trembling,

这时你的泪在流
zhèshí nǐ de lèi zài liú
this time your tears are flowing.

莫非你是在告诉我
Mòfēi nǐ shì zài gàosu wǒ
Could it be that you’re telling me,

你爱我一无所有
nǐ ài wǒ yīwúsuǒyǒu
you love me with nothing to me name?



噢……你这就跟我走
Ō……nǐ zhè jiù gēn wǒ zǒu
Oh! Now you will go with me!

噢……你这就跟我走
Ō……nǐ zhè jiù gēn wǒ zǒu
Oh! Now you will go with me!


噢……你这就跟我走
Ō……nǐ zhè jiù gēn wǒ zǒu
Oh! Now you will go with me!
