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…

谢谢那年的那个你
让我如今听情歌时
能感同身受

【梦回】主题曲
【Dreaming Back to the Qing Dynasty】Theme Song

曾守望山海 苍穹一念开
I’ve waited for a long time, hoping that the gate of hope would open
问君可知身在情长在
Do you know that as long as my body is present, my love will always be?
禁柳奈何风 沧海何奈尘埃
Forbidden willow can only admire the freedom that wind enjoys
Ocean can only envy the way dust flies
等天长地久 只等到 苍白
Waiting for forever,
Waiting even with grey hair and deep wrinkles

琴调轻弹无限恨
Playing the strings with hatred
弦断有谁人听
Who will hear the snapping of strings
红颜奈何自哀
Why should a woman grieve for her own sorrow
风月三千含泪不舍离开
Thousands of days have passed
Though couldn’t bear, I can only leave with tears
时间荒腔走板
Time flies ruthlessly
朱漆绿瓦不再
Old buildings with red paint and green tiles have been replaced
愿君生怜 让我因爱存在
Pity me, let me exist with my undying love

为你而来 几辈子
I’ve come for you, multiple lives
都只想和你有关
All I wish was to be part of your life
哪怕是梦 心甘愿 不醒来
May it be a dream, I’ll willing to never wake up

为你而来 我的爱
I’ve come for you, my love
是最轻柔的对白
And my love is expressed in the most gentle words
人间匆匆永远爱你
Life is short but I’ll love you forever
不会更改
Never changing

生生世世海枯石烂
Every life, may the seas evaporate and rocks disintegrate
只因你在
All for you.

没看【梦回】的我,为了翻译这首歌听了不下五十遍,因为我坚持不希望我对这首歌的理解会被电视剧的情节影响。听了之后,觉得“我”是个十分痴情的人,是如今现实生活中很难看见的。也许因为这样,那些爱得海枯石烂的宫廷剧才如此深受喜欢。

接到翻译这首歌的请求后心里有点忐忑。通常我不会害怕翻译中文歌,但如果歌词的内容倾向于所谓“中国风”的歌曲,会有点担心没办法很好的表达其中的文言文或成语。因此拖了整个月才完成这首歌的翻译,久等了Umi!

For I did not watch the drama, I have listened to this song for not less than fifty times. Reason being, I do not wish that my understanding of the lyrics be skewed by the plot of the drama. After listening, I find that the kind of undying love expressed in the song can rarely be found in our realistic society, and that could be the reason why people love this kind of dramas happening in olden times.

Upon receiving the song request, I was uncertain and worried that I could not express the beautiful words in the song. Therefore, the one-month wait before the translation of this song is finally done. Sorry for the long wait, Umi!

爱(莫文蔚): English Translation

爱 (Love)
作词 / Lyricist:李卓雄 (Francis Lee)

你还记得吗 记忆的炎夏
Do you still remember,
That summer
散落在风中的已蒸发喧哗的都已沙哑
Those that had fallen with the breeze have vanished,
Those noises had turned hoarse

没结果的花 未完成的牵挂
Fruitless flower, unfinished missing thoughts
我们学会许多说法来掩饰不碰的伤疤
We learnt multiple ways to cover up hidden scars

因为我会想起你我害怕面对自己
Because I’ll think of you,
I’m afraid of facing myself
我的意志 总被寂寞吞食
My determination,
Has always been swallowed up by loneliness

因为你总会提醒过去总不会过去
Because you’d always remind,
That the past would never pass
有种 真爱不是我的
There’s a kind of true love,
Which is not mine

没结果的花 未完成的牵挂
Fruitless flower, unfinished missing thoughts
我们学会许多说法来掩饰不碰的伤疤
We learnt multiple ways to cover up hidden scars

因为我会想起你我害怕面对自己
Because I’ll think of you,
I’m afraid of facing myself
我的意志 总被寂寞吞食
My determination,
Has always been swallowed up by loneliness

因为你总会提醒过去总不会过去
Because you’d always remind,
That the past would never pass
有种 真爱不是我的
There’s a kind of true love,
Which is not mine

假如我不曾爱你我不会失去自己
If I had never loved you,
I would not have lost myself
想念的刺 钉住我的位置
The thorn grown from missing you,
Has pinned me at that very position

因为你总会提醒
Because you will always remind
尽管我得到世界 有些幸福不是我的
Even if I own the world,
There’s some happiness which will never be mine

你还记得吗 记忆的炎夏
Do you still remember,
That summer
我终于没选择的分岔最后又有谁到达
I finally had no choice but to part with you,
Did any of us reach our planned destination?
