有没有人告诉你

Did anyone tell you   (yŏu méi yŏu rén gào su nĭ )

Singer: 陈楚生  (Chén chŭ shēng )

I must have encountered the song a number of times, but it fails to register much within me until qute recently.  The singer Chen Chusheng is from Hainan province. Recently, he  sang the theme song for the movie ‘Under the hawthorn tree”. 

Chen was once named as a top pub singer in China. Anyone visiting Chinese pubs will bound to hear the pub singer strumming the guiter with this song.  It is also a favourite  Karaoke song.

Lyrics

当火车开入这座陌生的城市

dāng huŏ chē kāi rù zhè zuò mò shēng de chéng shì

那是从来就没有见过的霓虹      (secondary rainbow )

nà shi cóng lái jiù méi yŏu jiàn guò de ní hóng

我打开离别时你送我的信件

wŏ dă kāi lí bié shí nĭ sòng wŏ de xìn jiàn

忽然感到无比的思念

hū rán găn dào wú bĭ de sī niàn

看不见雪的冬天不夜的城市

kàn bu jiàn xuĕ de dōng tiān bù yè de chéng shì

我听见有人欢呼有人在哭泣

wŏ tīng jiàn yŏu rén huān hū yŏu rén zài kū qì

早习惯穿梭充满诱惑的黑夜       (back  and forth ;         entice)

zăo xí guàn chuān suō chōng măn yòu huò de hēi yè

但却无法忘记你的脸

dàn què wú fă wàng jì nĭ de liăn

有没有人曾告诉你我很爱你

yŏu méi yŏu rén céng  gào su nĭ wŏ hĕn ài nĭ

有没有人曾在你日记里哭泣

yŏu méi yŏu rén céng  zài nĭ rì jì lĭ kū qì

有没有人曾告诉你我很在意

yŏu méi yŏu rén céng gào su nĭ wŏ hĕn zài yì

在意这座城市的距离

zài yì zhè zuò chéng shì de jù lí
