相亲相爱

相亲相爱

I came across this meaningful Chinese song a few days back, which sums up what a family is. 

Family, the closest people whom we are with, defines who we are and our outlook to life. Certainly, not every family is as described in this song, it is something we can hope for in making our family a better one, every tomorrow. Remember that no family is perfect and we all have our struggles… so may this be an encouragement to you.


Here are the lyrics of the song and a brief translation.

相亲相爱 – (姜育恒)

我喜欢一回家就有暖洋洋的灯光在等待,

I like to return to a home that is awaiting me with the warmth of its lights

我喜欢一起床就看到大家微笑的脸庞,

I like to wake up to the laughter of my family

我喜欢一出门就为了家人和自己理想打拼,

I like to go out knowing that I am realising the dreams of myself and my family

我喜欢一家人新朝着同一个方向眺望。

I like it when my family looks towards the same future

哦!我喜欢快乐时马上就和你分享,

I like it when I get to share my happiness with you immediately

我喜欢受伤时就想起你们温暖的怀抱,

I like to remind myself that I am still accepted even on days when I feel broken

我喜欢生气时就想起你们永远包容多么伟大,

I like to remind myself on angry days, that within the family, we are always generous and accepting towards each other

我喜欢lu行时为你把美好记忆带回家。

I like to bring back happy memories during our vacations back home

因为我们是一家人,

Because we are a family

相亲相爱的一家人,

A loving family

有缘才能相聚,

Fate brings us together

有心才会珍惜,

We will always cherish

何必让满天乌云遮住眼睛?

Why do we allow the grey skies to blind our eyes to these?

因为我们是一家人,

Because we are a family

相亲相爱的一家人,

A loving family 

有福就该同享,

When there are blessings, we share them

有难必然同当,

When there are trials, we go through them

用相知相守换地久天长。

Stay by each other till the end of our time

我喜欢一回家就把乱糟糟的心情都忘掉,

I like to forget my frustrations when I step into the house
我喜欢一起床就带给大家微笑的脸庞,

I like to wake up smiling to the rest of the family

我喜欢一出门就为了个人和世界的美好打拼,

I like to go out and work hard for myself and for the good of mankind

我喜欢一家人梦朝着同一个方向创造。

I like it when my family realises our dreams together

哦!当别人快乐时好像是自己活得幸福一样,

When others are happy, it is as if I’m living in blessedness 

当别人受伤时我愿意敞开最真的怀抱,

When others are hurt, I allow myself to lend them a shoulder

当别人生气时告诉他就算观念不同不必激动,

When others are angry, I tell them that differing opinions need not result in an agitated state

当别人需要我时我一定卷起袖子帮助他。

When others need me, I will avail myself for them

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Finally, this is the YouTube video of the song.
