思念
我在水里打捞你的眼
我在梦里与你相见
如今的你 不再陌生 超越我的思念

我在风里等你归来
我在雨里和你相见
如今的你 已不再遥远 就在我身边
喔 心中有你 喔 心中有你 不会停止思念
喔 心中有你 喔 心中有你 就有不断的挂牵

我在风里等你归来 我在雨里和你相见
如今的你 不再陌生 超越我的思念
Yearning

I´m trying to meet your eyes in waters deep
I catch a blink of you in all my dreams
finally today
you´re not a distant lovers shade
the end to all my yearning´s on the way

I wait for you to come back with the winds
I´m meeting you out there in the rains
finally today
you´re not that far away
I long to have you right here by my side

Oh... I carry you in my heart
Oh... in my heart
will my yearning scare you away
Oh... I carry you in my heart
Oh... in my heart
will my dreams make you fade away

I wait for you to come back with the winds
I´m meeting you out there in the rains
finally today
you´re not that far away
will that longing be endlessly

Oh... I carry you in my heart
Oh... in my heart
will my yearning scare you away
Oh... I carry you in my heart
Oh... in my heart
will my dreams make you fade away

Oh... I carry you in my heart
Oh... in my heart
will my yearning scare you away
Oh... I carry you in my heart
Oh... in my heart
will my dreams make you fade away
will my longing make you fade away
will my yearning make you fade away

人们都说牛的力气大
可是我看不到
我不是瞎子也不是文盲
而是牛的本身我看不到

抬起你那坚强的头
拱起你那沉重的要
吼一声长啸
去吧你的力回找

吼一声长啸
雷电为你呐喊
去吧你的力回找

牛 你是坚强的
牛 你是无私的
牛 你是神的化身
是力的源泉
Buffalo

The people all know the power of the buffalo
yet I can´t see it
I´m not a blind man, I´m not illiterate
the buffalo doesn´t show it´s nature any more

Rise up high your heavy strong head
raise your heavy loaded back
roar out loud what´s within you
get back to power again

Down from heavens thunders loud
support you gathering strength
to get back to power again

Buffalo you´re strong enough
Buffalo unselfish and tough
Buffalo the incarnation of a god
the source of power rests within

夸父追日
我蹲在黑暗中
还要瞧日头
我躺在寒冷中
还要瞧日头
黑呼呼地黑 黑得难受
冷嗖嗖地冷 冷得太久
日头日头天上过
你总也不停留
东方升 西方落
我瞧你瞧得白了头
喔 …
我晒出古铜色
还要瞧日头
我喝干两河水
还要追日头
亮当当地亮
亮得不透
热烘烘地热
热得不够

日头日头前面跑
你总也不停留
东方来 西方去
我追你追到路尽头
喔 …
Kua Fu On The Run

Squatting in the dark
gotta search for the sun
lying in the cold
I have to search for the sun

Master of darkness
unbearable black
ruling coldness
never seems to end

Day by day sun´s on the run
it never stops nor waits
down in the west, up in the east
along the way my hair turned grey

Skin dark now, tanned
all burned by the sun
I drank two rivers almost dry
in my staggering run

Bright as light can be
yet not bright enough
hot as heat can be
yet not hot enough

Day by day sun´s on the run
never stops nor waits
up in the east, down in the west
I follow to the very end

沙漠
沙漠连着沙漠
沙漠 沙漠
什么也看不见
也没有路
什么也看不见
回答我是沙漠

沙漠连着沙漠
沙漠 沙漠
你为何这么冷漠
我看见了什么
一双快吹落的脚印

喔 沙漠 你为什么这样宽
喔 沙漠 你给我一条路
喔 沙漠 你给我一滴水
去把我的希望找回

沙漠连着沙漠
沙漠 沙漠
你为何这样 这样
能不能给我海螫蜇楼
千万不要
把我一点希望毁灭
Desert

Desert nothing but desert
Desert oh desert

As far as eyes can see
there is no road no street
as far as eyes can see
all desert, endlessly

Desert nothing but desert
Desert oh desert

Pictures flurrying up in front of me
a mirage of life and green
but these endless dunes of sand
are stealing the last hope from me

Oh desert, where´s your beginning where´s your end
Oh desert, which direction should I choose
Oh desert, I must not waist one single sip
don’t take away my last hope

Desert nothing but desert
Desert oh desert

I wish I had been warned
at night too cold, too hot by day
out here on my own
the last sip of water will soon be gone

Oh desert, with no beginning and no end
Oh desert, give me any kind of way
Oh desert, give me water, just one sip
don’t take away my last hope

I´m turning (GaryLaowai & friends)

黑夜
醒来 睁开眼帘
没有歌声
也听不到鸡鸣
为什么 同样是黑夜
黑夜为什么都这样长

我不怕黑夜
也不怕夜静
而是黑夜怕我
黑夜对我来说
已不再陌生
我把黑夜当成伙伴

我穿好衣服
走出家门
看见很多人
听见鸟语
听见笑声
可是我眼里还是黑夜一片(我为黑夜曝光)
没有完 没有了 还是一个多
我要走
不能忍受
我要走

我没有什么留恋的
也没有什么让我带去的
更没有我可想的
黎明就要来临
那里是我的歌声
那里是我的歌声
Black Night

I lie awake, staring eyes
no sound at all
not even a roosters cry
why is that night all black
why that endless why that long

I don´t fear the black night
and I don´t fear silence
yet the black night fears me
it´s not a stranger to me
I´ve already made that night
my companion

I throw on nice clothes
step out the front door
people everywhere
I hear birds sing, hear people laugh
can´t fool my eyes all there is - black night

It never ends, it never stops
always the same
I gotta go, can´t stand it no more
I gotta go

I throw on nice clothes
step out the front door
people everywhere
I hear birds sing, hear people laugh
can´t fool my eyes all there is - black night

I´ve got nothing that´ll keep me
and nothing to take with me
there´s nothing I could think of
but yet – dawn´s breaking - slowly
there´s new light, changing hue
it´s a new light, changing hue

I throw on nice clothes
step out the front door
people everywhere
I hear birds sing, hear people laugh
chasing away the black night

Renmin Nan Lu (GaryLaowai & friends)

人民南路

There was a guy out there
driving a bus
down at Renmin Nan Lu
through the jungle of bikes
not an easy job to do

There was a man out there
he´d just caught that bus
down at Renmin Nan Lu
he saw his father at the hospital
now heading back home

There was a girl out there
riding her bike
down at Renmin Nan Lu
four fifteen in the afternoon

There was this kid out there
just arrived near the statue of Mao Zedong
up at Renmin Nan Lu
staring eyes but no one cared
or realized what he was up to

The papers next day called him a “you bing ren” 有病人
someone mentally ill but with deadly ideas
´cause he´d built a belt with explosive TNT
an explosive belt he was wearing around his waste
hidden under his coat as he arrived at the scene
at Renmin Nan Lu
He didn´t care anymore, he just didn´t care
stepped out on the street
at Renmin Nan Lu
he hopped the bus, he hopped that bus
he didn´t care and blew himself up

There was someone out there
just like me and you
out on Renmin Nan Lu
there was just someone out there
someone like me and you

Yi Wu Suo You (GaryLaowai & friends)

Cui Jian) - English Translation by Gerhard Staudinger/ Leslie Hastings



Nothing To My Name>/b>
Yi Wu Suo You (一无所有)

Hey I keep asking you
could you ever be with me
but I see your putting me down
´cause I ain´t got a thing

Freedom´s all that I can offer to you
you know that I will make my way
but I see you laugh at me
nothing to my name
Oh… could you ever be with me
Oh… ever be with me

I´m moving ground under my feet
I can feel the waters flow
you still don´t take me seriously
´cause I ain´t got a thing

Do you really have to keep on laughing
can´t you see I really care
do you think I´ll always be a poor man
with nothing to my name
Oh… could you ever be with me
Oh… ever be with me

Moving ground under feet
feel all the waters flow

Need to make a final stand
I´ve been waiting such a long long time
I´ve got to make you understand
and take your hand in mine

I feel how much your hands are trembling
I wonder as I see your tears
is that the way you tell me you love me
though I ain´t got a thing
Oh… together you and me

坏人
所有的人知道我是坏人
很冷漠不会说笑
脾气很怪
听说是天下最坏的人

我走遍千山万水
我问自己熄干什么
我说不知道
啊 我是一个坏人

啊 坏人 什么是坏人
啊 坏人 什么是坏

去年来到一个新地方
人们都不愿认识我
到底是为了什么
明白了 我是一个坏人

啊 坏人 。。。

一天飞来唱歌的小鸟
美秒的声说
最坏的人 最坏的鸟
合起最坏的一对

啊 坏人 。。。

今年醒来 啊呀我的妈呀
身边躺着一个坏小鸟
就是我的老婆
啊 明白了
我爱你坏小鸟

啊 坏人 。。。
Bad Guy

Everybody knows I´m the bad guy
bad moods no laughs at all
bad temper, what a bummer
heard people say: he´s the baddest man in town

I cross the land in many ways
ask myself what to do
but as I do not have a clue
ahh here´s the bad guy
Ahh bad guy ohh what´s a bad guy
Ahh bad guy ohh what is so bad

Last year I came across a new place
everybody seemed to know me already
I backed off, what´s going on
then realized – it´s me, the bad guy
Ahh bad guy …

One day a small bird came flying
and a fairytale came true
“most lousy guy and most dreadful bird
make the baddest couple ever”
Ahh bad guy …
This year came up, oh my god
I learned this most dreadful bird
is now my wife, I realize
I love you, my little dreadful bird
Ahh bad guy …

梦中的路
多少次火车飞驰
多少次汽笛鸣响
多少次我含着泪水
多少次我召唤大地

双脚为何这么沉
累了走不动了
我的肚子说 你饿了
喝点水吧

一道白光射进我的眼睛
远处票来一阵琴声
紗募笑著说 着就对了
继续做你的梦吧

一条熟悉的路
美丽的草原
金色的山岗
一条白色的银河

梦中的路。。。

话作一阵轻风
吹开梦的沙漠
找到你温暖的心
找到你温暖的心
In My Dreams

How often a train passes by
how often does it´s whistle pierce the silence
how often do I have tears in my eyes
how often do I long to travel with it
tell me why my feet are sore
tired, just can´t keep on walking
your stomach says: it´s hunger
just take a sip of water

From a distance appears a bright light
getting closer, blinding my eyes
someone says: Everything´s gonna be alright
Everything´s gonna be alright, you´ll see

A well known way clear and bright
like a golden mountain in a dazzling shine
like a vortex it pulls me in
like a vortex it pulls me away

In my dreams in my dreams
In my dreams I´m on the way
In my dreams the way is clear
In my dreams I make it out of here

Wind arises, becomes a storm
reaches out for me, drags me away
an overwhelming force
the earth shakes, I´m out for good

A well known way clear and bright
like a golden mountain in a dazzling shine
like a vortex it pulls me in
like a vortex it pulls me away

In my dreams in my dreams
In my dreams I´m on the way
In my dreams the way is clear
In my dreams I make it out of here

Wind arises, becomes a storm
reaches out for me, drags me away
Ah, in my dreams

老外
有一个外从国外来的人
人们都用奇怪的眼睛看着他
想来想去 我不知道
想来想去 我不知道为什么

我想有朋友
要有不同的文化
只有人才有思想
我走在大街上

所有的人都说:老外
也许这就是我的名字
想来想去 我想不通
想来想去 我想不通

对着镜子 我问自己
虽然皮肤不一样
穿着也不一样
语言不通
我是人 我是朋友
啊 我是人 我是朋友
啊 受不了
老外 老外

我走出家门 骑上单车
对着高山 对着河流
想来想去 不太清楚

黎明来到
太阳升起
我走入人海
又开始了老外之歌

老外 老外 老外
老外 老外 老外
啊 我是人 我是朋友
啊 我是人 我是朋友
啊 受不了
啊 我是人 我是朋友 …
Foreigner

It´s me the guy from a foreign land
getting looks like an alien
gives me a headache, I don´t get it straight
gives me a headache, I don´t get it straight
why all that?
I wanna be a friend
touch new ways to understand
I´m all straight, clear and straight
as I go out on the streets

Wherever I go they call me „laowai“
is that my Chinese name?
gives me a headache, I don´t get it
gives me a headache, I don´t get it
the guy in the mirror is asking me
is it just the colour of your skin?
you also dress differently
and you’ve got an accent when you speak

I´m a human being, I´m a friend
I´m a human being, I´m a friend
just can’t cope with it
foreigner….

I climb my China bike
ride in the stream be in between
gives me a headache, don´t get it

A new day breaks
the sun on the rise
I jump into that sea of people
here it starts again the laowai-song
foreigner….

I´m a human being, I´m a friend
I´m a human being, I´m a friend
just can’t cope with it
foreigner….

I understand: it is my new name!
Laowai Gary is Gary Laowai…

再见夏天
我用整个夏天和你告别
我的悲怆和诗歌
皱纹哪啪点起
岁月在焚暴中变为勇敢的痛苦

泪水汹涌燃遍道路
燕子南来北去
证明我们苦难的爱情
暴雨后的坚贞不屈

风迎面扑来树林倾倒
我散步穿过黑色的草地
穿过干枯的水库
心跳迅速无言而感动
我来向你告别 夏天
我的痛苦与幸福
善火热地经历你的温柔
忘却吧,记住吧,再见吧,夏天
Goodbye Summer

It takes the whole summer to tell you farewell
grieve tastes like a poem
in a sound of flames
burnt down over times
bravely drying my tears

The glow of pain burns deep in my soul
a swallow from south heading north
testifying my suffer my love
after the rainstorm still on my side

Wind rushing in my face
forests seem to fall
I take a walk over black burnt grass
through dried once fertile land

The heart beats, no words, still touching me
I come to your farewell, summer
all my sadness and all my joy
once burning hot now gentle and soft

forgotten, remembered, goodbye love
goodbye sweet summer love

告别
衣服已放皮箱
我的房间空空荡荡
我亲爱的你沉默不语
知道我要又去远方
已经熟悉你的身影
已经刻下你的笑容
我把它们锁进心房
我把它们留在琴上
离开这就像离开我的家
离开你我再也不想说话
猴年马月我再回来
猴年马月和你拥抱
很多事还没有做
很多话还没有说
唱一唱告别 留下我的歌
唱一唱告别
唱一唱告别 这就是我的心声

现在阳光正好
我应该去赶路
请你多保重
再吻我一次
但你别送我
我熟悉我的路
我不要你看到我的痛苦
很多事还没有做
很多话还没有说
唱一唱告别 留下我的歌
唱一唱告别


唱一唱告别 留下我的歌
这就是我的心声
唱一唱告别 留下我的歌
唱一唱告别
唱一唱告别 留下我的歌 请把我记住
Farewell

All my things packed in boxes
the rooms empty, all cleared out
you my dear can´t find any words
knowing that soon I´ll be far gone
The sound of your voice I know so well
every expression of your face
all burnt into my soul
breathing in my music

Leaving here´s like leaving home
leaving you is hard to talk about
I know one day I´ll be back
one day I´ll lie in your arms again
lots of things still undone
lots of words still unspoken

I sing my farewell tune
leave my songs to you
I sing my farewell tune
I sing my farewell tune
leave my songs to you
to listen what my heart says

The sky above turned all blue
I got to be on my way
so please take care
and kiss me goodbye for good
but don´t give me company
as I step onto the street
I just don´t want you to see
my sadness, my tears
lots of things still undone
lots of words still unspoken

I sing my farewell tune
leave my songs to you
to listen what my heart says

I sing my farewell tune
leave my songs to you
please remember me
