<我不需要每一个人都爱我 MV>

为什么 人生要活得 那么累?
Why must we live such a tiring life?
该怎么 讨好每个人 每张嘴?
How do we please every pair of lips and every mind?
当按赞 和留言 定义了 我是谁
When definition of who I am depends on “comments” and “likes”
那快乐 是不是也需要 业配?
Is placement marketing what happiness also requires?

Advertisements

做自己 太有想法 有人白眼
When being yourself and having too many ideas invite rolling of eyes
但努力 迎合别人 也有人嘴
When putting in hard work and accomodating to others invite gossips and rumours
害怕被 谁标签 而活成 那标配
Our fear of being labelled has resulted in us living our lives based on the configured standard
不冒险 的人生是否 才危险?
Is a life without risk more perilous?

我不需要每一个人 都爱我的一切
I don’t need everyone to love everything about me
我只需要一次机会 为自己爱一遍
I only need one chance to truly love what I love
我相信即使不完美 a rock can be a star
I believe that though imperfect, 一块无名之石也能成为明日之星
没流下那眼泪 怎会懂梦有多 珍贵?
Without shedding that drop of tear,
We will never know how precious our dreams are

Advertisements

小人物 承受误解 拾起笑脸
Being an insignificant figure, he can only tolerate misunderstandings and pick up his smiles
像你我 渴望某天 成为经典
Just like you and me, he longs for the day when he will turn into a classic
不讲理 的世界 对热血 泼冷水
This unreasonable world likes to dampen our burning passion
该怎么 守护初心不被 摧毁?
How do we change the world without being changed?

我不需要每一个人 都爱我的一切
I don’t need everyone to love everything about me
我只需要一次机会 为自己爱一遍
I only need one chance to truly love what I love
我相信即使不完美 a rock can be a star
I believe that though imperfect, 一块无名之石也能成为明日之星
没流下那眼泪 怎会懂梦有多 珍贵?
Without shedding that drop of tear,
We will never know how precious our dreams are

Advertisements

那些 超级英雄也 像你有血 有泪
Just like you, those superheroes shed blood and tears
哪天 wanna run-away 其实也不 丢脸
If you ever 想逃 it is never a shame
但放不下的 就别后退 记住你最诚实 的脸
If you can’t put it down, then don’t back off,
Remember the most truthful face of yours
哪些 爱我喷我的 不再纠结 随便
Those who love me, those who vilify me,
I will not be bothered by any of these anymore
那些 我所爱所为 我执著的 一切
Things I do, things I love,
Every single thing I persevere for
终会定义 我是谁
Will ultimately be the definition of who I am

我不需要每一个人 都爱我的一切
I don’t need everyone to love everything about me
只要一生一次机会 为自己爱一遍
I only need one chance in this life, to love once for myself
我相信即使不完美 a rock can be a star
I believe that though imperfect, 一块无名之石也能成为明日之星
没流下那眼泪 怎会懂梦有多 珍贵?
Without shedding that drop of tear,
We will never know how precious our dreams are

Advertisements

(啦啦啦啦啦~珍贵)
Lalalalala~how precious
我相信即使不完美 A rock can be a star
I believe that though imperfect, 一块无名之石也能成为明日之星
没留下那眼泪 怎会懂梦有多珍贵
Without shedding that drop of tear,
We will never know how precious our dreams are

别怕流下眼泪 当你眼中闪耀着 光辉
Don’t be afraid to shed tears when your eyes are glowing with radiance

我不再 把人生活得 那么累
I no longer live a tiring life
也不再 讨好每个人 每张嘴
And I no longer try to please every pair of lips and every mind
全世界 不理解 其实也 无所谓
Even if the entire world does not understand me, it’s alright
流过泪 才会懂梦有多珍贵 对不对?
It’s only after shedding those tears that we’ll truly understand how precious our dreams are, isn’t it?

He’s got my past frozen behind glass

But I’ve got me

You just go

天生一对(曹杨): English Translation

曹杨 (Young)
天生一对 (Meant To Be)
作词 / Lyricist:唐小奕
作曲 / Composer:曹杨 (Young), 李汪哲 (Chavy Lee)

阳光让空气 充满了香气
The lovely sunshine has perfumed the air
初夏的回忆 满满都是你
You filled up my early summer memories
咖啡的秘方 用心的惊喜
From the secret recipe of coffee,
To the time spent behind all the sweet surprises
你在我身边 我才像我自己
I’m only my true self when I am with you

你转身做鬼脸的傻气
Throwing me silly faces as you turn around
是我最想要珍惜
Your adorableness is what I want to cherish the most
你倔强逞强的坏脾气
Your stubborness, your obstinacy,
Your little bad tempers
除了我还有谁会轻轻去抱你
Besides me, who else will go over and gently embrace you?

谁说天生一对 就一定甜到腻
Who says that if we were meant to be, we must be sickly-sweet?
柠檬糖化了才是在乎你
The deepest love should last beyond the melting of a lemon candy
我们肩并著肩 不说话也默契
Side by side, no words are needed with our telepathy
彩虹挂在身后的墙壁
On the wall behind us, a rainbow hangs warmly

你说天生一对 还是需要勇气
You said that even if we were meant to be, courage is still a need
不是谁都有幸福的权利
Not everyone is blessed with the right to love freely
只有我们懂得 棒棒糖的意义
The meaning of a lollipop, only we will know it
你是我唯一不离不弃
I know you will always stand by me

Advertisements

杯子是杯垫 存在的意义
A cup is the reason for a coaster
努力的动力 唯一就是你
You are the reason for my motivation
街角的霓虹 循环的单曲
Neons of streets, singles on repeat
我说有了你 我才是我自己
I said that I’m only my true self with you beside me

你转身做鬼脸的傻气
Throwing me silly faces as you turn around
是我最想要珍惜
Your adorableness is what I want to cherish the most
你倔强逞强的坏脾气
Your stubborness, your obstinacy,
Your little bad tempers
除了我还有谁会轻轻去抱你
Besides me, who else will go over and gently embrace you?

Who says that if we were meant to be, we must be sickly-sweet?
柠檬糖化了才是在乎你

You booked the night train for a reason
订了夜班车的你,一定有你的理由
So you could sit there in this hurt
好让自己与伤痛独处
Bustling crowds or silent sleepers
乘客熟睡的安宁与繁忙人群的喧嚣
You’re not sure which is worse
你不确定哪个更糟

Because I dropped your hand while dancing
因为我在跳舞的时候松开了你的手
Left you out there standing
留你在外独自站着
Crestfallen on the landing
心如刀割地站着
Champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁
Your mom’s ring in your pocket
你口袋装着你母亲的戒指
My picture in your wallet
你皮夹夹着我的照片
Your heart was glass, I dropped it
你的心如玻璃 我却放了手
Champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁

Advertisements

You told your family for a reason
告诉你的家人的理由
You couldn’t keep it in
是因为兴奋的你藏不住喜悦
Your sister splashed out on the bottle
你的妹妹开启了香槟 气泡喷洒了一地
Now no one’s celebrating
但现在连一个庆祝的人都没有

Dom Pérignon, you brought it
你带了唐培里侬
No crowd of friends applauded
却没有任何一个朋友祝贺
Your hometown skeptics called it
镇里的人都议论着说
Champagne problems
只不过是些香槟般的华丽忧愁
You had a speech, you’re speechless
准备了感言的你无语了
Love slipped beyond your reaches
爱情从你十指间溜走了
And I couldn’t give a reason
而我却一个理由都给不出
Champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁

Advertisements

Your Midas touch on the Chevy door
你的迈达斯之手触碰了雪佛兰的门
November flush and your flannel cure
十一月匆匆的经过, 你的衣裳让我取暖
“This dorm was once a madhouse”
“这个宿舍曾经是个疯人院”
I made a joke, “Well, it’s made for me”
我开了个玩笑说”这疯人院是精心为我制造的”
How evergreen, our group of friends
我们的朋友,多么努力保持最新消息的他们
Don’t think we’ll say that word again
那个词,再也不会有人说出口了
And soon they’ll have the nerve to deck the halls
不久后,他们就会有那个胆去重新布置
That we once walked through
我们曾经一起走过的大厅
One for the money, two for the show
一是为了钱 二是为了秀
I never was ready so I watch you go
我从来都没有准备好,所以我才会选择看着你走
Sometimes you just don’t know the answer
有时候你就是不懂答案是什么
‘Til someone’s on their knees and asks you
直到他向你下跪的那瞬间
“She would’ve made such a lovely bride
What a shame she’s fucked in the head,” they said
他们说:”只可惜,她不懂在想什么,不然她肯定会做个好新娘”
But you’ll find the real thing instead
但是终究你会找到真正的她
She’ll patch up your tapestry that I shred
她也会修补我所撕破的挂毯

Advertisements

And hold your hand while dancing
跳舞的时候她会抓紧你的手
Never leave you standing
不让你独自一人在外站着
Crestfallen on the landing
心如刀割地站着
With champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁
Your mom’s ring in your pocket
你口袋装着你母亲的戒指
Her picture in your wallet
你皮夹会夹着她的照片
You won’t remember all my
你不会记得我那些
Champagne problems
如香槟般的华丽忧愁

You won’t remember all my
你不会记得我那些
Champagne problems
如香槟般的华丽忧愁…

If I wanted to know who you were hanging with
如果我想知道你和谁在一起
While I was gone I would have asked you
不在你身边时我大可问你
It’s the kind of cold, fogs up windshield glass
起了雾的挡风玻璃 阵阵寒意
But I felt it when I passed you
就如冷若冰霜的你
There’s an ache in you put there by the ache in me
我的痛苦形成了你的痛楚
But if it’s all the same to you
但若一切对你而言毫无差别
It’s the same to me
对我而言也没分别

So we could call it even
那我们就算扯平了
You could call me babe for the weekend
这周末你可称我为宝贝
‘Tis the damn season, write this down
我们得把这该死的季节写下来
I’m stayin’ at my parents’ house
住在父母家的我
And the road not taken looks real good now
发现了那条从未行过的路,
如今看起来真诱人
And it always leads to you in my hometown

I parkеd my car right between the Methodist
And thе school that used to be ours
我把车子停在教堂与我们的母校间
The holidays linger like bad perfume
假日如过期的香水在空气中弥漫
You can run, but only so far
可逃,却也逃不远
I escaped it too, remember how you watched me leave

我也觉得无所谓

We could call it even

We could just ride around
我们可游游车河
And the road not taken looks real good now
那条从未行过的路,
如今看起来真诱人
And it always leads to you in my hometown
而它总把我带往你与家乡

Sleep in half the day just for old times’ sake
睡去了大半天只因怀念起旧时的时光
I won’t ask you to wait if you don’t ask me to stay
若你没开口要我留下,我也绝不会开口要你等待
So I’ll go back to L.A. and the so-called friends
我会回到洛杉矶,回到所谓的朋友身边
Who’ll write books about me, if I ever make it
有些会把我写进书里,若我成名的话
And wonder about the only soul who can tell which smiles I’m fakin’
不时会想起,那个懂得分辨我真假笑容的人
And the heart I know I’m breakin’ is my own
而我知道亲手粉碎的心,属于我自己
To leave the warmest bed I’ve ever known
当我选择了离开最温暖的堡垒时

We could call it even
我们就算是扯平了吧
Even though I’m leavin’
就算我要离开了
And I’ll be yours for the weekend
这周末我还是会属于你
‘Tis the damn season
这该死的季节

We could call it even
