Chinese Love Song "回家" ( Hui Jia, Return Home) by Shunza

November 26, 2009

Song title: 回家 ( Huí Jiā, Return Home)

To me, it's a sad song about a lady's love left her without saying any reason and how she misses him, loves him, wants to let go but also wants him to come home.
I'm glad that my personality won't get me in this kind of
Just love the singer's voice and how she sings the song.

Singer: 順子 ( Shùn zi, Shunza ) was born in 1973 in Beijing, China.
A famous singer and songwriter. Her concerts are more intimate and cocktail-style which I like.
She released her first album in 1997 in Taiwan.
This song is the first song in her first album.
The Chinese lyrics in the video is traditional .

From Foongpc's request, I try to translate the Chinese words into English following the order of the Chinese words. So some will be strange, follow by the sentences which I think are proper. There may be mistakes. Please feel free to correct me, I'll be appreciated!

Nice song by Shunzi, yeah the translation is easier to follow but slightly more taxing your fingers on the keyboard. Excellent [优秀] {yōuxiù}

Kelvin, your ex is full of emotion like me. I cried when I watch sad or touching movies.

There was one song did get me cry, I happened to hear it when I was in my down time. But I've never cried for that again since then.

I found this song amazing. The singer voice is good. I can try to follow the song with the Pinyin lyrics well. I started my venture into learning Mandarin Chinese through Pinyin.

Do you have more song like this, either from the same singer or a male singer (a Frank Sinatra like). Don't forget to post the Pinyin!!


Gin said...

To Anonymous, I think you are Sakal?

I'm glad you like this song and try to follow the song with the Pinyin. It's a very beautiful song.

You can find all the songs I have posted
in my side bar "Labels" section "Chinese Kid's Songs", "Chinese Love Songs", "Chinese Pop Songs". Some of them needed updating and I'll update them asap.

Happy learning~~~

Its a great song and easy to follow the words and characters, although I'm not too familiar with traditional characters.
I had seen this on youtube sometime ago but wasn't able to follow it which was frustrating as it has a great tune as well

Gin said...


Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you think it's a great song and I hope you can sing it well and understand now. ^_^

This song is very nostalgic. It could be considered like the stereotypical love song of sorrow and pain. I don't like it very much... Buy Viagra Viagra
