“谁会提起那些被火焰蒸发的眼泪”
– PinkOlifant

要怎么独自面对所有难题
How do I face all the problems alone?
我已经用尽所有力气
I’ve used every ounce of my energy
太多时候快不行
Many a times, when I was reaching the breaking point
想要举起白旗
Ready to concede defeat
回头你就在那里
You’re there when I turned around

你的爱给我一切
Your love provides me with everything
去追寻梦想不停歇
To chase my dream tirelessly
让我能
Allowing me to
Go on and on and on, on and on and on
继续前进

Just stay with me
别走
Just stay with me
请你别走
Just stay with me
请你留在我身边

因为是你
Because it’s you
给我勇气
Who give me the courage
继续前进
To go on and on

一个人要怎么翻山又越岭
How do I conquer all the difficulties alone?
当我已经快喘不过气
Whenever I’m running out of breath
每一次快要倒地
Whenever I’m about to collapse
想要选择放弃
Whenever I want to just give up
伸出手的就是你
You are there to extend your hand

你的爱给我一切
Your love provides me with everything
去追寻梦想不停歇
To chase my dream tirelessly
让我能
Allowing me to
Go on and on and on, on and on and on
继续前进

Just stay with me
别走
Just stay with me
请你别走
Just stay with me
请你留在我身边

因为是你
Because it’s you
给我勇气
Who give me the courage
继续前进
To go on and on

Just promise me
请你答应我
Just stay with me
别走
Just stay with me
请你别走
Just stay with me
请你留在我身边

给我勇气
You give me the courage
继续前进
To go on and on

Just stay with me
请你留在我身边

When the dinner is cold and the chatter gets old
当你的晚餐都凉了, 话也淡了
You ask for the tab
你举手买单
Or that moment again, he’s insisting that friends
或又是那相同的瞬间, 当他坚持说
Look at each other like that
那是普通朋友会给对方的眼神

When the words of a sister come back in whispers
当好姐妹的话语传到你耳中
That prove she was not in fact what she seemed
证明了她不是你心中的摸样
Not a twin from your dreams
不是你梦中的双生
She’s a crook who was caught
而是个披着羊皮的骗子

That old familiar body ache
那如旧患般的熟悉酸痛
The snaps from the same little breaks in your soul
你的灵魂传来了相同的断裂声
You know when it’s time to go
你知道是时候离开了

Twenty years at your job
维持了二十年的工作
Then the son of the boss gets the spot that was yours
职位却被老板的儿子替代了
Or trying to stay for the kids
或是, 为了孩子而留下
When keeping it how it is will only break their hearts worse
但知道保持现状只会把他们伤得更深

That old familiar body ache
那如旧患般的熟悉酸痛
The snaps from the same little breaks in your soul
你的灵魂传来了相同的断裂声
You know when it’s time to go
你知道是时候离开了

Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
有时放弃是坚持
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
有时逃离是勇敢
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
有时唯有离开
That will find you the right thing
才能让你前往对的地方

Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
有时放弃是坚持
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
有时逃离是勇敢
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
有时唯有离开
That will find you the right thing
才能让你前往对的地方

Fifteen years, fifteen million tears
十五年, 一千五百万滴眼泪
Begging ’til my knees bled
跪求至双膝淌血
I gave it my all, he gave me nothing at all
我付出了全部, 他却什么也没给我
Then wondered why I left
还想不通我为何离开

Now he sits on his throne in his palace of bones
如今登上宝座, 坐享骸骨遍地的宫中
Praying to his greed
向自己的贪婪祈祷, 崇拜自己的无厌
He’s got my past frozen behind glass
即使他将我的过往冻结
But I’ve got me
而我拥有着此刻的自己

That old familiar body ache
那如旧患般的熟悉酸痛
The snaps from the same little breaks in my soul
我的灵魂传来了相同的断裂声
I know when it’s time to go
我知道是时候离开了

Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
有时放弃是坚持
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
有时逃离是勇敢
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
有时唯有离开
That will find you the right thing
才能让你前往对的地方

Sometimes giving up is the strong thing
有时放弃是坚持
Sometimes to run is the brave thing
有时逃离是勇敢
Sometimes walking out is the one thing
有时唯有离开
That will find you the right thing
才能让你前往对的地方

That will find you the right thing
带你前往对的地方
And you know in your soul
于你的灵魂深处, 你知道
And you know in your soul
于你的灵魂深处, 你知道
When it’s time to go
当离开的时候到了
You know, you know, you know, you know
你知道, 你知道, 你知道, 你知道
When it’s time to go
何时该离开
So then you go
你便离开了
Then you go
你就走了
You just go
一走了之了…

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?

還未抱過的人(李昭賢): English Translation

李昭賢 (Clara)
還未抱過的人 (Regrets)
作词 / Lyricist:馮穎琪  (Vicky Fung)
作曲 / Composer:謝國維 (Victor Tse)
编曲 / Arranger: 謝國維 (Victor Tse)


事實為誰活得好 因此天天追逐
Hoping to provide your loved ones with a comfortable life,
You worked tirelessly day and night
不懂扭轉 惟有沈默地信服
You did not know how to return to the merry life before this,
So you silently persuaded yourself that everything you’ve done is worth it
幾多晚上也許太累青春都奉送
How many nights of your youth have you sacrificed?
就算經得起 兩眼通紅
How many nights have you borne those nights with bloodshot eyes?

現實問誰受得起 甘於天天追夢
Reality asks if anyone would dare to spend every single day chasing dreams
追到天昏地暗 沿路或失重
A route which may never ends,
A route which you may lose yourself
為著承傳來日美好 心血也附送
For the sake of the future,
You’ve sacrificed your energy and youth
忘掉寫下情書給你送
Forgetting to write love letters to those who matters

還未抱過的人
Those whom you have not hugged
未說過的遺憾
Those regrets which you never revealed
等不到抬頭月滿 天漸暗
The perfect time never came,
Yet the end of life is approaching
難道要拼命半生 方知道未抱緊
Do you need to waste half of your life to realise you have not loved someone enough?
今天在身邊 假使在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
一起懷抱夜星雲
Let’s embrace the stars among the clouds together

現實問誰受得起 甘於天天追夢
Reality asks if anyone would dare to spend every single day chasing dreams
追到天昏地暗 沿路或失重
A route which may never ends,
A route which you may lose yourself
為著承傳來日美好 心血也附送
For the sake of the future,
You’ve sacrificed your energy and youth
忘掉寫下情書給你送
Forgetting to write love letters to those who matters


還未抱過的人
Those whom you have not hugged
未說過的遺憾
Those regrets which you never revealed
等不到抬頭月滿 天漸暗
The perfect time never came,
Yet the end of life is approaching
難道要拼命半生 方知道未抱緊
Do you need to waste half of your life to realise you have not loved someone enough?
今天在身邊 假使在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
一起懷抱夜星雲
Let’s embrace the stars among the clouds together

還未抱過的人
Those whom you still have not hugged
別要太過安份
Let’s put aside those differences
請分享還未贈送的一吻
Let’s not be petty with a kiss
流浪到哪地處身
Wherever you may be
哼起那段餘韻
As long as you hum that familiar melody
不管在身邊 可知在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
都可懷抱夜星雲
We could all embrace the stars among the clouds together

不管在身邊 可知在天邊
No matter if your loved one is right beside you,
Or an imagined land
都可懷抱夜星雲
We could all embrace the stars among the clouds together

Translated by PinkOlifant.

Thank you Sa for recommending this song. I took a long time to translate as it is not available in my music streaming app. Sorry for the wait!

Besides, I also took a long time to open up myself to this song as this is not a friendship song nor a love song. It’s a family song.

It’s about someone who has sacrificed his life believing that as long as he works hard, his family will be happy. Spending all his energy working but neglecting his family is a mistake which he only realises towards the end of his life.

Many have lived such a life, including my father.

悬日(田馥甄): English Translation

田馥甄 (Hebe Tien)
悬日 (Let it…)
作词 / Lyricist:葛大为 (David Ke)
作曲 / Composer:刘庭佐[知更] (Ting Tso Liu)
编曲 / Arranger: 柯宏升 (Keke Ke), 罗恩妮 (Annie Lo)
制作人 / Producer: 陈建骐 (Chen Chien Chi)

黄昏宣告著 今天已死亡
The setting Sun is announcing the death of today
淡去的光阴 是我的战场
Those fading memories are my war zones
重遇在热络的市集
We met again at a crowded night market
我很喜欢你的她
I like her
多配你呀
How compatible both of you are

是真的开心 不是在作假
I was truly happy, I wasnot faking
没有烟硝 互动健康
There was no fighting, what a healthy interaction we had
赶紧拿出我的手机
Thinking about taking out my phone
也让你看看我的他
and showing you the photo of my partner
不介意的话
If you didn’t mind

落下 同一颗太阳
The setting of the same Sun
有什么特别的吗
Is there anything special?
你还不是一样
Aren’t you just like the Sun
温暖却停在远方
Warm yet afar

对峙著不可能的爱情
Facing love, an impossible love
也该像悬日那样
We should just let it…
让它落下
Let it set like the evening Sun

她刻意放空自己
She had purposely let her mind wander
想留点时间让我们
Trying to give us some time
再说说话
To say a few more words
我像在愚弄自己
I was making a fool of myself
演那出破绽百出的 心胸宽大
Trying to act as if I had let go of the past,
Deeply flawed, I know my acting was

你不忘调侃自己
Not forgetting to ridicule yourself
不够好却总是有人
You claimed that you’d never been good enough yet there’s always someone
为你牵挂
Who’s willing to care for you
我又被回忆波及
Memories flashed across my mind again
心怎会这样不强壮
Why couldn’t my heart be stronger

落下 同一颗太阳
The setting of the same Sun
有什么特别的吗
Is there anything special?
你还不是一样
Aren’t you just like that Sun
温暖却停在远方
Warm yet afar

对峙著不可能的爱情
Facing love, an impossible love
也该像悬日那样
We should just let it…
让它落下
Let it set like the evening Sun
让它落下
Let it set…
让我放下
Let me let go of the past…
我没放下
I have not let go…
我想放下
I wish to let go…

Translated by PinkOlifant.

谢谢那年的那个你
让我如今听情歌时
能感同身受
