旅行的意义

The Meaning of Travel  (lv3 xing3 de yi4 yi4)

Singer: Cheer Chen  陈绮贞 (chen2 qi3 zhen)
 
 
Just discovered this singer and song from the CRI site. The title of this 2004  song seems interesting enough to me. Cheer is a popular singer, acoustic guitar  as well as the writer of this folk style song.
 
Cheer is another of those names, like Happy, Candy, Apple, Pure  etc that are  popular with the Chinese people  (especially Hongkongers).
She hails from Taipei, Taiwan.
 
 
 
 
 

你看过了许多美景
你看过了许多美女
你迷失在地图上每一道短暂的光阴    (duan3 zan4 – short duration)
你品尝了夜的的巴黎              (ba li3 – Paris)
你踏过下雪的北京
熟记书本里每一句你最爱的真理     (shu2 ji = learnt by heart)

却说不出你爱我的原因
却说不出你欣赏我哪一种表情
却说不出在什么场合我曾让你动心     (chang3 he2 – situation)
说不出离开的原因

累计了许多飞行            (lei3 ji4 – accumulate)
你用心挑选纪念品          (tiao xuan3 – choose)
搜集了地图上每一次的风和日丽    (sou ji4 – collect)
你拥抱热情的岛屿           (dao3 yu3 – islands)
埋葬记忆的土耳其        (mai2 zang – bury;  tu3 er3 qi2 – Turkey))
你流连电影里美丽的不真实的场景
却说不出你爱我的原因
却说不出你欣赏我哪一种表情
却说不出什么场合我曾让分心
说不出旅行的意义

勉强说出你爱我的原因       (mian3 qiang3 – relectantly / with difficulty)
却说不出你欣赏我哪一种表情
却说不出在什么场合我曾让动心
说不出旅行的意义
勉强说出你为我寄出的每封信
都是你离开的原因你离开我
就是旅行的意
