A simple thought…

hey guys..

just suddenly found this song really inspiring-especially the chorus-so decided to share this with u people..

Verse 1 & 2:
妈妈说 很多事别太计较
只是使命感找到了我 我睡不着
如果说 骂人要有点技巧
我会加点旋律 你会觉得超屌
我的枪 不会装弹药
所以放心 不会有人倒
我拍青锋侠 不需要替身
因为自信是我绘画的颜料
我做很多事背后的意义远比你们想象
拍个电视剧为了友情与十年前的梦想
收视率再高也难抗衡我的伟大理想
因为我的人生无需再多一笔那奖项
我不知道何时变成了社会的那榜样
被狗仔拍不能比中指要大器的模样 怎样
我唱的歌词要有点文化 因为随时会被当教材
CNN能不能等英文好一点再访
时代杂志封面能不能重拍
随时随地 注意形象 要控制饮食
不然就跟杜莎夫人蜡像的我不像 (本来就不像)
好莱钨的中国戏院 地上有很多手印脚印
何时才能看见我的掌

唱歌要拿最佳男歌手
拍电影也不能只拿个最佳新人
你不参加颁奖典礼就是没礼貌
你去参加就是代表你很在乎
得奖时你感动落泪
人家就会觉得你夸张做作
你没表情别人就会说太嚣张
如果你天生这表情
那些人甚至会怪你妈妈
结果最后是别人在得奖
你也要给予充分的掌声与微笑
开的车不能太好 住的楼不能太高
我到底是一个创作歌手
还是好人好事代表
专辑一出就必须是冠军
拍了电影就必须要大卖
只能说当超人真的好难

Chorus:
哦如果超人会飞
Oh if superman can fly

那就让我在空中停一停 歇再次俯瞰这个世界
Then let me stop for a while in the air, have a break and to take a look at this world again

会让我觉得好一些
It will make me feel better

拯救地球好累
Saving the Earth is so tiring

虽然有些疲惫的我还是会
Although I’m tired, but I’ll keep going

不要问我哭过了没
Don’t ask me if I’ve cried

因为超人不能有眼泪
Because Superman cannot cry

This song, although it reflects Jay’s own thoughts after 10years in the music industry and his rise as Asian’s pop prince, can also, I guess, be applied to each and every of our lives.

Each of us in our own various aspectss, have something we might excel in/be especially good at – somewhat like a ‘superman’ in this area. This might cause people around us to have higher expectations of us/ for ourselves to set high expectations. However, when we fail to reach the standard, we might be really critical of ourselves and feel really lousy. Well, this song kind of tells us that in reality, “Superman can’t fly”, so no matter how perfect we seem or wish ourselves to be, there’s always a possibility of failure. So…try not to take it to hard if you don’t meet the expectations you’ve set but still continue to do your best becos after all “Superman” is still human 😀

take a listen to this song and feel inspired..all the best for the exam results and all the upcoming races/competitions!^_^

  1. Fixed the video. Previous one was taken down for copyright reasons or whatever

    At least that now I know who the singer is, I can appreciate the idea of linking Jay Chou music to running.

    And why does he always have to mumble?

  2. Sometimes, we just tried to hard, and things don’t exactly turns out to be the way we wanted to be. In the end,we became disillusioned.

    Occasionally, we need to take one step back and take a breather to help enlighten things up. Ultimately, as fellow team mates, we can always fall back on one another.

    “Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see Life with a clearer view again.”

    And sometimes, it might not be that bad to cry it out.

    Cheers,
    Your friendly site admin.
