不一樣又怎樣 (蔡依林) We’re All Different, Yet The Same (Jolin Tsai)

Considering Pride was yesterday, here’s a very popular Taiwanese Pop music video that caused a but stir in Taiwan for positive LGBT+ messages. I have translated the dialogue in the music video. I hope you guys watch it! HAPPY PRIDE!

*Warning, there maybe teardrops on your keyboard. 

MV HERE:

[Intro]

Nurse: Excuse me, are you family member of Chou Shou Man?

Woman: Yes. 

Nurse: And may I ask what your relation to her is? 

女方女方愛對方 不簡單也很平凡
在同一張床 讓人生變不平凡

Girls love other girls,
It’s not simple but rather ordinary.
When they sleep in the same bed,
It makes life rather complicated.

是甚麼樣 就怎麼辦 非一般又怎麼樣
還不是照樣尋找最愛是誰的答案

This is how it is, this is what we’re going to do.
What does it matter if we’re not so normal?
Don’t we still end up searching for the answers to find out what love is?

[Excuse mam, could you wait outside? Please, it’ll just be a moment]

庸俗地海枯石爛 世俗又憑什麼為難

Seen in a way that’s taboo until the end of time
Why does the world want to make things so difficult?


“I have these forms here with the information, excuse me, what is your relation to the patient?”

“We’re friends. Best of friends. We’ve been living together for 30 years. I am her closest of kin! “

“But we still need a familial relation to sign the form. If we don’t-“

“Please. I’m begging you..” 

“…It’s in our policy and we have to abide by the rules.” 

不一樣 都一樣 有各樣的患難
不一樣 也一樣 有分合有聚散
各有各一生一世 (也)各有各的溫柔鄉
哦愛不是抽象的信仰
有血有汗

Not the same, yet still the same,
There are so many kinds of trials and tribulations

Not the same, yet still the same,
Separating and coming together again

Everyone has their own lives
Everyone has their own home comfort
Love is not such an abstract concept to believe in
But still there is blood and sweat.

另一半變成老伴 留下非一般的遺產
愛一個人 看究竟需要多勇敢

Your other half becomes your old partner
Leaving behind a different kind of inheritance.
To love someone
Is to see how much courage you have until the very end.

另一種愛情的結晶 就是更單純的浪漫

Another kind of love that is crystallised
By the purity of its’ romance.

不一樣 都一樣
不一樣 也一樣 有分合有聚散
各有各一生一世 各有各的溫柔鄉
哦愛不是抽象的信仰 有血有汗

Not the same, yet still the same,
There are so many kinds of trials and tribulations
Not the same, yet still the same,
Separating and coming together again

Everyone has their own lives
Everyone has their own home comfort
Love is not such an abstract concept to believe in
But still there is blood and sweat.

誰比誰美滿 由誰來衡量
不用誰原諒 就讓感動萬世留芳

Who can compare, having a more fulfilled life?
Who can be the judge of that?
No forgiveness is needed,
Merely let this heart-moving circumstances leave it’s mark on the world.

不一樣 都一樣
信望愛 都一樣

Not the same, yet still the same,
To believe in love,
It’s all the same.

不一樣 都一樣 從缺憾 找圓滿

Not the same, yet still the same,
From your regrets, find something that makes you whole.

不一樣 也一樣 會快樂 會悲傷
各有各一生一世 (也)各有各的溫柔鄉
神不神聖 愛這種信仰 誰說了算

Not the same, yet still the same,
And we will be happy
And we will be sad.
Everyone has their own lives
Everyone has their own home comfort
Gods are not all that holy,
If love has the ultimate say.

Why should anything anyone else says, matter?

[Outro]

Nurse: Excuse me, are you family member of Chou Shou Man?

Woman: Yes. 

Nurse: And may I ask what your relation to her is? 

Woman: 

She’s my wife.
