Sun Yen Zi 孫燕姿 – The Sky is Dark 天黑黑

Sun Yan Zi is also known as Sng Ee Tze, Stefanie Sun, is both a singer and a songwriter. She is known as the Singaporean Mandopop queen. Stefanie, the award-winning singer, based her career in Taiwan and has sold over 30 million copies of her albums thus far. Moreover, her popularity extends to China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and her native Singapore.

The song is about how grandmother’s song accompanied her through life. She used to be silly and naughty when she’s little, and her grandma would always sing to her to calm her. After growing up, having her own life. She feels like the world isn’t the world she used to dream of. In contrast, the world is hard and cruel. That’s when she remember the song grandma used to sing to her in summer afternoons. “The sky is dark, it’s about to rain” (it’s a Chinese dialect, also known as Taiwanese or Haka). It turns out that grandma has already given her advice to her long time ago. Even though grandma might not be able to accompany her through life, the song, the rhythm will always be in her heart.

When I was little, I used to be noisy and stubborn

我的外婆 总会唱歌哄我
My grandmother would always sing to me

xià tiān de wǔ hòu lǎo lǎo de gē ān wèi wǒ
夏天的午后 老老的歌安慰我
In summer afternoons, the song grandma sings comforts me

nà shǒu gē hǎo xiàng zhè yàng chàng de
那首歌好像这样唱的
The song seems to go like this

(Chorus)

ti aw aw bei loaw hoaw
天黑黑 欲落雨
The sky is dark, it’s about to rain

ti aw aw aw aw
天黑黑 黑黑
The sky is dark… it’s dark…

 

lí kāi xiǎo shí hòu yǒu le zì jǐ de shēng huó
离开小时候 有了自己的生活
Growing up and having my own life

xīn xiān de gē xīn xiān de niàn tóu
新鲜的歌 新鲜的念头
Getting to know fresh songs and new ideas

rèn xìng hé chōng dòng wú fǎ kòng zhì de shí hòu
任性和冲动 无法控制的时候
When my willfulness and impulsiveness cannot be controlled

wǒ wàng jì hái yǒu zhè yàng de gē
我忘记 还有这样的歌
I almost forgot that there is still this song

(Chorus)

ti aw aw bei loaw hoaw
天黑黑 欲落雨
The sky is dark, it’s about to rain

ti aw aw aw aw
天黑黑 黑黑
The sky is dark… it’s dark…

我爱上 让我奋不顾身的一个人
I fell in love with someone who I could risk my life for

我以为 这就是我所追求的世界
I thought that this is the world that I’ve been looking for

rán ér héng chōng zhí zhuàng bèi wù jiě bèi piàn
然而横冲直撞 被误解被骗
However, I was reckless, I was misunderstood and been deceived

shì fǒu chéng rén de shì jiè bèi hòu zǒng yǒu cán quē
是否成人的世界背后 总有残缺
Is the adult world really this terrible?

 

wǒ zǒu zài měi tiān bì xū miàn duì de fēn chà lù
我走在 每天必须面对的分岔路
I’m walking on the crossroad that I passed by every day

wǒ huái niàn guò qù dān chún měi hǎo de xiǎo xìng fú
我怀念 过去单纯美好的小幸福
Missing the small little things and those simple happiness

ài zǒng shì ràng rén kū ràng rén júe dé bù mǎn zú
爱总是让人哭 让人觉得不满足
Love always makes people cry and makes them feel dissatisfied

tiān kōng hěn dà què kàn bù qīng chǔ hǎo gū dú
天空很大却看不清楚 好孤独
The world is big but it’s hard to see it clearly… how lonely

 

tiān hēi de shí hòu wǒ yòu xiǎng qǐ nà shǒu gē
天黑的时候 我又想起那首歌
When the sky grows dark, I once again recall that song

突然期待 下起安静的雨
Suddenly hoping to see a peaceful rain

yuán lái wài pó de dào lǐ zǎo jiù chàng gěi wǒ tīng
原来外婆的道理早就唱给我听
It turns out that grandmother’s advice has already sung to me

xià qǐ yǔ yě yào yǒng gǎn qián jìn

Saying that even though it’s raining, we still need to live on bravely

我相信 一切都会平息
I believe that everything will be fine

wǒ xiàn zài hǎo xiǎng huí jiā qù
我现在好想回家去
I really feel like going home now

天黑黑 欲落雨
The sky is dark, it’s about to rain

ti aw aw aw aw
天黑黑 黑黑
The sky is dark… it’s dark…
