CHORUS:
身在他乡 志在远方
shēn zài tā xiāng zhì zài yuǎn fāng
I’m abroad, my dreams afar,

你的爱让我坚强
nǐ de ài ràng wǒ jiān qiáng
your love makes me strong.

歌声荡漾 你为我鼓掌
gē shēng dàng yàng nǐ wèi wǒ gǔ zhǎng
Ripples of singing, you give me applause,

沉浸在爱的海洋
chén jìn zài ài de hǎi yáng
immersed in an ocean of love.

从 不敢想到 想去做到
cóng bù gǎn xiǎng dào xiǎng qù zuò dào
From “not daring to want it” to “wanting to do it” to

做到我想的
zuò dào wǒ xiǎng de
“achieving what I wanted”,

事实证明我并不像他们想象的那样脆弱
shì shí zhèng míng wǒ bìng bú xiàng tā men xiǎng xiàng de nà yàng cuì ruò
I proved that I’m not as weak as they imagined.

我只是需要一盏灯
wǒ zhǐ shì xū yào yì zhǎn dēng
All I need is a lamp,

一架钢琴 一支麦克风
yí jià gāng qín yì zhī mài kè fēng
a piano, and a microphone.

CHORUS

曾经想象过做一名医生救死扶伤
cēng jīng xiǎng xiàng guò zuò yì míng yī shēng jiù sǐ fú shàng
I once dreamed of being a doctor, to save the dying and heal the wounded.

也曾想象过做律师 做记者
yě céng xiǎng xiàng guò zuò lǜ shī zuò jì zhě
I also once dreamed of being a lawyer, a journalist,

做奥运冠军 但是都没有结果
zuò ào yùn guàn jūn dàn shì dōu méi yǒu jié guǒ
a Olympic champion, but none of them bore fruit,

因为我最想要的是一盏灯
yīn wèi wǒ zuì xiǎng yào de shì yì zhǎn dēng
because what I want the most is a lamp,

一架钢琴 一支麦克风
yí jià gāng qín yì zhī mài kè fēng
a piano, and a microphone.

CHORUS x3

沉浸在爱的海洋
chén jìn zài ài de hǎi yáng
Immersed in an ocean of love.
