A Simple Man’s English Lyrics 普通人

Himmy and Chewywon are so hardworking so I have to translate the lyrics to show my support for Wallace even though I don’t really fancy the song. It is okay and is growing on me but I don’t like how they are kind of cashing in on Wallace’s fame to advertise the movie. Anyhow Wallace sings it very well and the song suits him in that he is a simple yet not simple man. I would have liked it better if Wallace has a role in the movie. He is really professional, wearing a Statue of Liberty sweater to attend the press conference for this song. This is the first time I’ve heard of a OST press conference for a movie. I hope he has been paid well for this 😛

Do inform me of any errors and omissions within the English translation. Thank you to hoju for helping me with 2 lines. By the way, she also helped me to translate the lyrics of Why Love?, the ending theme song of My Sunshine into English even though she is not really Wallace Chung’s fan. Finally, a big thank you to Chewywon for subbing it in the MV at such short notice.

Yǒushí wǒ yě xiǎngguò huì rúhé
Sometimes I also thought of how
走我计划好的人生
Zǒu wǒ jìhuà hǎo de rénshēng
To walk my well-planned life
可有时我也想过不管如何
Kě yǒushí wǒ yě xiǎngguò bu guǎn rúhé
But sometimes I also thought no matter how
要配得上电影一样的爱情
Yào pèi dé shàng diànyǐng yīyàng de àiqíng
It must match the romance like in a movie
可大概大多人就这样
Kě dàgài dàduō rén jiù zhèyàng
Probably most people are like this
踏上开始就不回的旅程
Tà shàng kāishǐ jiù bù huí de lǚchéng
Embark on a journey of no return from the start
到这里遇到你像是注定
Dào zhèlǐ yù dào nǐ xiàng shì zhùdìng
Arriving here and meeting you seems to be fated
有了跌宕的剧情
Yǒule diēdàng de jùqíng
With the ups and downs in the storyline
连我这么一个普通的人
Lián wǒ zhème yīgè pǔtōng de rén
Even such a simple man like me
都想过要和你共同虚度光阴
Dōu xiǎngguò yào hé nǐ gòngtóng xūdù guāngyīn
has also thought of wanting to idle away time together with you
只是我这么一个普通的人
Zhǐshì wǒ zhème yīgè pǔtōng de rén
I’m only such a simple man
却有为你横冲直撞的心
Què yǒu wéi nǐ héngchōngzhízhuàng de xīn
But I have a rampaging heart for you
我没有生来勇敢天赋过人
Wǒ méiyǒu shēnglái yǒnggǎn tiānfùguò rén
I was not born more courageous or talented than others
面对人山人海只剩一些诚恳
Miàn duì rénshānrénhǎi zhǐ shèng yīxiē chéngkěn
When facing huge crowds, only a little earnestness remains
我没有怪脾气没有鲜艳纹身
Wǒ méiyǒu guài píqì méiyǒu xiānyàn wénshēn
I don’t have strange temperament or bright-coloured tattoos
力量只够表达一些真心
Lìliàng zhǐ gòu biǎodá yīxiē zhēnxīn
Only enough strength to express a little sincerity
我没有生来勇敢天赋过人
Wǒ méiyǒu shēnglái yǒnggǎn tiānfùguò rén
I was not born more courageous or talented than others
面对悬念迭起欠缺一些天分
Miàn duì xuánniàn diéqǐ qiànquē yīxiē tiān fèn
When faced repeatedly with the suspenses of life, some talent is lacking
我没有意志力不曾冲锋陷阵
Wǒ méiyǒu yìzhì lì bùcéng chōngfēngxiànzhèn
I don’t have the willpower to charge forward
却变成一个不同的人
Què biàn chéng yīgè bùtóng de rén
But I turned into a different man

Wǒ méiyǒu shēnglái yǒnggǎn tiānfùguò rén
