从头再来 – Start All Over Again

Start all over again (cóng tóu zài lái ) is the name of song being sang by a contestant  in a very popular talentime contest 中国达人秀 (China has got talent). The name of the contestant is  高逸峰 (Gao Yifeng), who claimed that his white hair appeared when his former company went bust. He is now a boss of a dumpling (baozi) shop.

Original song by Liu Huan:

 

Lyric:

昨天所有的荣誉,
已变成遥远的回忆.
勤勤苦苦已度过半生,
今夜重又走入风雨.
我不能随波浮沉,
为了我致爱的亲人.
再苦再难也要坚强,
只为那些期待眼神.
心若在梦就在,
天地之间还有真爱
看成败人生豪迈,
只不过是从头再来

Translation for youtube user:

Yesterday’s glory and honours have all become distant memories

Half our life has been spent in tough work and hardships,

And tonight we have walked again into bitter rains and winds

I cannot drift with the tide — for my loved ones

I have to be strong no matter what — for those expectant eyes

Where the heart is, dreams are — There is still love between heaven and earth

Look at life with bold pride

— Loss or gain simply means starting all over again
