National Day Parade 2008 Theme Song

Shine for Singapore (English Version) and 晴空万里 (Chinese Version)

The theme for this year’s NDP is “Celebrating the Singapore Spirit” and the theme song reflects this theme by calling Singaporeans to “Shine for Singapore“.

In line with this theme, the concept of the music video aims to reflect the Singapore Spirit through the unfolding of three inspirational stories that portrays compassion, determination and the nurturing of the young.

The first story tells of how a newspaper delivery man perseveres to train for a vertical marathon by taking the stairs to distribute papers despite his old age.

Another story illustrates how a boy shows compassion to girl with a limp by designing a pair of special shoes for her, to enable her to walk normally.

The last story depicts how parents and teachers can nurture a child by being supportive and patient in understanding her creative vision.

The music video ends with the piecing up of the child’s art pieces to form a huge star – the motif of the music video that signifies every Singaporean is a star in their own way, shining bright for Singapore.

晴空万里

Lyrics:
什么是默契
我们同时仰望夜空的时序
同时被一颗星指引
无论哪里 它陪着我 第一时间回到熟悉

什么是勇气
手握着手笔形成世界新领域
就凭一颗心可以打造奇迹
再高的天也触手可及

* 晴空晴万里 满载真心
就算有风雨 我们的力量像恒星
齐心合力 微弱的光芒也能燎亮天际

# 晴空行万里 让梦探寻
明天的歌曲 来自每个人的声音
坚定不移 只要紧靠一起

什么是四季
常年彩虹 画出彩色的回忆
在这赤道旁的岛屿 小小面积
没有什么比家更美丽

用我们的勇气 照耀着天际
拥抱晴空万里

Shine For Singapore

Have you seen a star,
One that guides you no matter where you are?
However vast the sky may be
Or dark it seems
You can be sure, It’s always there for You and Me

Have you heard a song,
One that moved you, One that made you sing along?
Your dreams and hopes will all come true
If you believe that every vision begins with you.

Shine for Singapore
This is your song
Deep inside your heart where it belongs
It’ll always stay, Strive for your goals.
You will achieve with visions so bold.

Shine for Singapore
This is Our song
Reach out for the sky, Far and beyond
As one we’ll stand, We’re Singapore
It’s here that we belong

Have you heard a song,
One that moved you, One that made you sing along?
Your dreams and hopes will all come true
If you believe that every vision begins with you.

Shine for Singapore
This is your song
Deep inside your heart where it belongs
It’ll always stay, Strive for your goals.
You will achieve with visions so bold.

Shine for Singapore
This is Our song
Reach out for the sky, Far and beyond
As one we’ll stand, We’re Singapore
It’s here that we belong

Nowhere I’d rather be, This is home to me
This star shines strong..
And Free…
Yeah..
