<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?

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?

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

因为你 所以我(五月天): English Translation

Advertisements

五月天 (Mayday)
因为你 所以我 (Because of You)
作词 / Lyricist:五月天 阿信  (Mayday Ashin)
作曲 / Composer:五月天 阿信  (Mayday Ashin)
编曲 / Arranger: 于京延 (Rare Yu)

人群 烟火 香槟和气球
Human crowds, fireworks, champagnes and balloons
是你 带我 从派对逃走
It’s you who helped me escape from the party
逃离 人间 耳语和骚动
To escape from the whispers and commotions in this living world
这里 只有 你我和星空
Here, it’s you and me, under the starry sky
你是 何时 静静靠近我
When did you quietly come near me?
你是 何时 偷偷拯救我
When did you secretly rescue me?
在我 掌心 放了 一颗糖果
And put, on the palm of my hand, a candy

人类 为何 都爱看天空
Why do humans love to look at the sky
背上 却都 有一对伤口
With a pair of wounds on their backs behind
生在 这个 凡人的星球
Born into this planet of the mortals
是否 不配 作天使的梦
Are we not fit to have dreams of an angel
你将 你的 翅膀给了我
You gave your wings to me
带我 穿越 狼群和镜头
And led me through packs of wolves and clicks of cameras
让我 能够 品尝 片刻自由
Allowing me to gain a brief taste of freedom

|因为你 所以我 爱上那 片天空
|Because of you, I fell in love with the sky
|天空下 我在祈求 那是你 牵着我
|I pray that it’s you who’s holding my hand under the sky
|最深刻 的故事 最永恒 的传说
|The most profound story, the most everlasting legend
|不过 是你 是我 能够 平凡生活
|Is just you and I leading an ordinary life

人生 只是 须臾的刹那
Life is just a brief moment in time
人间 只是 天地的夹缝
Mortal world is just a crack between the earth and the sky
人们 何苦 要活成修罗
Why do humans yearn to live like Asuras
活在 执著 对错的牢笼
Dwelling in the cage which stubbornly separates the right from the wrong
是你 帮我 停下了沙漏
It’s you who helped me put a stop to the hourglass
是你 教我 别害怕闯祸
It’s you who taught me not to be afraid of getting into trouble
是你 让我 活得 与众不同
It’s you who made me live a life different from all others

|因为你 所以我 所以我 不退缩
|Because of you, I’d never flinch
|再不愿 这一生中 有遗憾 不反驳
|I’m no longer willing to accept any regret in life,
|Without giving it a good fight
|不再听 别人说 不在乎 谁能懂
|I’ll no longer follow what others say,
|I’ll no longer care who really understands
|只因 世界 再大 不过 你和我
|Because it’s just you and I who matter no matter how big the world is
|用最小回忆 堆成宇宙
|Building our universe with the tiniest bits of memories…

别再想见我(许光汉): English Translation

能请到戴佩妮作词作曲,贴切地将歌名与剧名稍微连接在一起,写出合适许光汉温柔形象的歌曲…

许光汉 (Greg Han)
别再想见我 (Yesterday No More)
作词 / Lyricist:戴佩妮  (Penny Tai)
作曲 / Composer:戴佩妮  (Penny Tai)
编曲 / Arranger: 邓志明 (Martin Tang)

还记得吗 那场烟火
Do you remember? Fireworks of that night
它见证我们倒数爱情时 特别冷漠
They witness our indifference as we counting down our love

还记得吗 受伤的是我
Do you remember? I was the one who was hurt
却不断执著过往的细节 哪里出错
Yet I was the one rummaging through the details in the past,
Persistently trying to figure out what had gone wrong

虽然没有想要躲 街上人潮一样多
Although I’ve never thought of avoiding you among these crowded streets
但没想到转个弯遇见了你 却如此不洒脱
I’ve never thought that I would still not bear to let you go when I bump into you again

下意识的你就别再拥抱我
Do not hug me subconsciously
别以为只不过是个自然动作
Stop thinking that it’s just a natural move
如果可以微笑点头地轻描带过
If you could just smilingly give a brief nod
漠视我都好过假装熟络
Or simply disregard me,
It would have been better than feigning familiarity

下一次的你就别再提起我
Do not bring me up during the next gathering
别以为只不过是个贴心问候
Stop thinking that it’s just a nice gesture
如果可以还是朋友 我会无话不说
If we could still be friends,
I could chat freely
无视你就可以轻松地隐瞒着
Ignoring you could easily hide the fact that
现在我有多么地难过
I am devastated right now

Advertisements

关系确定已经不在 错愕也是意料之外
Both of us were aware of our relationship status,
It’s a surprise that we’re still not used to it
彼此都没练习 别急于一时 反应太快
Without practising for a planned reaction,
We were guided by our reflexes
当我靠近你的心跳声 僵硬的我什么都跳针
As I approached your heartbeat,
Stiffness enveloped my body and halted my ability to think
但拥抱的力度却仅以礼貌相称
However, the tightness of our hug was carefully calibrated to reflect pure courtesy

下雨时的你就别再想见我
Do not think of me whenever it rains
别以为只不过是个耐心等候
Stop thinking that you’re just displaying the virtue of patience
早已被雨淋湿太久 还有什么好说
You’ve been under the rain long enough,
There’s nothing much left to be said
就索性当作那个人有一点像我
Just imagine that one of the passers-by resembles me
撑著伞背对你走
Holding an umbrella and walking away from you…

“别再想见我” 是许光汉的首张个人数位单曲。自从参与电视剧 “想见你” 的演出后人气飙升,就连远在韩国也有许多粉丝。出单曲是意料之中,但能请到戴佩妮作词作曲,贴切地将歌名与剧名稍微连接在一起,写出合适许光汉温柔形象的歌曲,我本人是十分赞叹的。副歌末与桥段所隐含的“连绵不绝”式,根本就是戴佩妮的风格。许光汉已经唱得不错了但我还是十分期待戴佩妮的版本(也许是一场空的等待)。

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

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.
