A Cantonese Song that you MUST Know

海闊天空 by Beyond is a song which everyone – literally everyone – in Hong Kong and Guangzhou knows by heart.

Indeed, even people I know from other parts of China can sing the chorus, too. It crops up every time we go to sing karaeoke.

The strangest thing is, unlike most of the songs that I listen to, I don’t even remember when I came across 海闊天空 or how I learnt the words.  It seems like it’s something I’ve just always known.

Lyrics here:

今天我 寒夜裡看雪飄過
懷著冷卻了的心窩漂遠方
風雨裏追趕
霧裡分不清影蹤
天空海闊你與我
可會變(誰沒在變)

多少次 迎著冷眼與嘲笑
從沒有放棄過心中的理想
一剎那恍惚
若有所失的感覺
不知不覺已變淡
心裡愛(誰明白我)

原諒我這一生不羈放縱愛自由
也會怕有一天會跌倒
背棄了理想 誰人都可以
那會怕有一天只你共我

今天我 寒夜裡看雪飄過
懷著冷卻了的心窩漂遠方
風雨裏追趕
天空海闊你與我
可會變(誰沒在變)

原諒我這一生不羈放縱愛自由
也會怕有一天會跌倒
背棄了理想 誰人都可以
那會怕有一天只你共我

仍然自由自我
永遠高唱我歌走遍千里

原諒我這一生不羈放縱愛自由
也會怕有一天會跌倒
背棄了理想 誰人都可以
那會怕有一天只你共我

背棄了理想 誰人都可以
那會怕有一天只你共我

原諒我這一生不羈放縱愛自由
也會怕有一天會跌倒
背棄了理想 誰人都可以
那會怕有一天只你共我

  1. Hey Sara,

    :O He’s not the original singer, but I didn’t think he was that bad!

    I certainly know of 周柏豪, but I haven’t heard 一事無成 before… thanks for the recommendation! 😀
