People often ask me, “Katara, why do like Chinese so much?” That question is so tough to answer because there are so many reasons why I fell in love with it. So, I’ll tell you a story that pretty much sums it up.
There’s a story in China about a frog who lives in a well. When he looks up at the sky, he can only see it through the opening at the top of the well. So, his whole life, he thinks that what he can see is how big the sky actually is. Before I started learning Chinese, I feel like I was the frog in the well. My sky was awesome, beautiful, and blue, but yet, it was only a small part of what is actually there. Now that I’ve been studying Chinese and experiencing Chinese culture, I feel like I can finally begin to see the whole sky. My world was much smaller before, and now it has grown infinitely bigger and bright.
It’s magical. I’ve made friends who I would have never known, seen places I could have only dreamed about, and heard the most beautiful music. It’s changed my life in a beautiful way.

Hello everyone! My friend who helped me with my recent concert through Youku showed me the music video to Jay Chou’s song “Obviously” a few weeks ago. It’s from his new CD. I was inspired to write some English lyrics to it, I hope you enjoy them. Thank you for taking the time to watch my videos and support my music! xoxo Katara
Lyrics by Katara
Candy colored on the outside
But it’s all so bittersweet
You are smiling most of the time
With someone who isn’t me
And far away I hear them play
Melodies with words you wouldn’t say
You took me by the hand and led me along
You should have known that I am not that strong
It’s obvious I know now where we stand
Why did you decide to take my hand?
Your heart is so heavy
But you still can trust in me
It’s obvious she’s got something I don’t
Maybe she can love you how I won’t
There’s no need to choose
I’ll always be a friend to you
There’s no need to choose
Your heart was never mine to lose
