Tong Hua (Fairytale) – Wang Guang Liang (Michael Wong)

I was looking for a Chinese song to post on my blog, when I remembered this song… It’s called Tong Hua (童話) / Fairytale by Wang Guang Liang 王光良.

I heard this before, when the 2 Chinese boys did their own version of the song. But back then, it wasn’t one of my favorites, as I preferred their rendition of Wilber Pan’s Bu De Bu Ai. But I loved this song, when a friend of mine reintroduced it to me. She learned how to sing the song when she was in Shanghai learning Mandarin.

It’s a sad song, but I think it’s quite a popular song in the Mandopop industry. Also, according to my friend, it’s a song that is very easy to learn as the characters are very easy — well this would apply if you are learning Mandarin. Though it’s a slow song, I like the way the piano is being played, and though you do not understand it you know by the tune that it’s sad.. and the video is sad too!

Here’s the lyrics of the song…

Tong Hua (Fairytale) Pinyin

wang le you duo jiu zai mei ting dao ni
dui wo shuo ni zui ai de gu shi

ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua gu shi li
xin fu he kuai le shi jie jü

yi qi xie wo men de jie jü

Tong Hua (Fairytale) Translation

I forget how long it’s been since I last heard you
tell me your favorite story
I’ve thought about it for a long time, I start to get confused
Have I done something wrong again?

Crying, you told me that all fairytales were lies
I can’t possibly be your prince
Maybe you won’t understand that after you told me that you loved me
all the stars lit up in the sky

I am willing to be that angel that you loved most in the fairytales
My open arms turning into wings to protect you
You have to believe, believe that we will be like those inside a fairytale
where it is a happy ending

Writing our ending together

Tong Hua (Fairytale) 童話 Chinese

我想了很久 我開始慌了

你哭著對我說 童話裡都是騙人的
也許你不會懂 從你說愛我以後
我的天空 星星都亮了

我願變成童話裡 你愛的那個天使
你要相信 相信我們會像童話故事裡
