四百龙银 – 张宇
Four Hundred Coins – Phil Chang
si bai long yin – zhang yu

这里的人家远渡重洋
These people came from far away

找到他们家
And found their house

看了几回就要这个
After a few looks, they decided they want

六岁的女娃
This six year old girl

为了大哥要娶媳妇
Because her elder brother is getting married

没钱的妈妈
But their mother has no money

收了四百个龙银
So Mother accepted the four hundred coins

让她离开家
And let her leave home

她在厦门过了一夜
She spend a night in Xiamen

隔天才上船
Boarding the ship only the next day

身上穿着只有过年才能穿的衣裳
Wearing clothes that she can only wear during new year

妈妈为她缝了一个像她的娃娃
Mother sewed her a doll that look alike to her

「有它和你作伴 什么都别怕」
“With the doll for compansionship, you have nothing to fear”

那天晚上的月亮
The moon that night

被云挡住了一半
Was half obscured by clouds

看不见的另一半在要去的地方
No one can see where the other half is going

也许只能这么想
Perhaps only by thinking like this

才会觉得分开的只是月亮
Then it seems that all that was separated is the moon

心还一样
While the heart stays the same

二十六岁那年生了
At twenty-six she gave birth to

第五个女孩
The fifth baby girl

守寡的婆婆跟她说了
The widowed mother in law told her

香火不能断
The lineage must not be broken

刚好有人想要一个
It happens that someone wants

初生的女娃
A newborn girl

她用虚弱的身子追出几里外
She walked a few miles with her weak body

那天晚上的月亮
The moon that night

被云挡住了一半
Was half obscured by clouds

看不见的另一半在心碎的路上
No one can tell the other half was on the heartbroken path

千头万绪在心里转
A thousand thoughts going through the heart

突然发现残缺的不是月亮 是命运啊
Suddenly the realization that what’s incomplete is not the moon, but destiny

曲折要重覆到什么时候 才给圆满
How long must the difficulties go on before life goes smooth

她从箱底找出那个像她的娃娃
She found the doll from the bottom of her luggage

「有它和你作伴 什么都别怕」
“With the doll for compansionship, you have nothing to fear”

可是我的心肝
But my precious

谁跟你作伴
Who is accompanying you

  1. Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3
    different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!
