美人 (měi rén) is a love song with simple but catchy melody. It is performed by the famous Chinese singer 老狼 whose stage name literally means Old (老 lǎo) Wolf (狼 láng). The song was released in the 90s. Even though it’s a relatively old song, the feeling and emotions it brings to audiences are still heart-warming.

The song is about 美人 měi rén – beautiful person (only for women). It can be interpreted that the singer dreams about a beautiful girl. Even though he doesn’t know where she comes from, he hopes that she can stay around and not break his heart. In this ever-changing world, he’d better not foolishly wait, rather he’d better seize the current moment. He will give a lot of love to the beauty and he wishes to find peace and quietness in this busy and changing world.
