【八大戏剧台“冬季恋歌”主题曲】

相约在一个适合聊天的下午
We met in a lovely afternoon,
Perfect for catching up
分开很多年满以为没有包袱
After so many years apart,
I thought that there would no longer be any burden between us
我还打算回顾我们为何结束
Thinking that we could look back on how we ended
还想问你是不是一个人住
And asking if you are still living alone

当你的笑容给我礼貌的招呼
When your smile welcomed me politely
当我想诉说这些年来的感触
When I wanted to talk about how I felt all these years
你却点了满桌我最爱的食物
You’d already ordered a table full of my favourite dishes
介绍我看一本天文学的书
Introducing me to an astronomy book

我想哭不敢哭
I wanted to cry but I didn’t dare
难道这种相处
Wasn’t this kind of interaction
不像我们梦寐以求的幸福
Similar to our desired relationship goal
走下去这一步是宽容还是痛苦
To continue,
Is it an act of leniency or suffering?

我想哭怎么哭完成爱情旅途
I wanted to cry,
But how do I cry to complete this love journey?
谈天说地是最理想的出路
Chatting about random topics could be the most ideal way to go about it
谈音乐谈时事不说爱
Talking about music and current news,
But never about love
若无其事原来是最狠的报复
Treating that nothing had ever happened,
Was, to my realization, the most ruthless way of revenge

当我想坦白我们的乐多于苦
Just when I wanted to confess that our happiness was more than bitterness
你说水星它没有卫星好孤独
You said that Mercury does not have a moon,
How lonely
我才明白时间较分手还残酷
Then I realised,
Time is crueller than a break up
老朋友了再没资格不满足
To my old friend,
I have no right to be dissatisfied

我想哭不敢哭
I wanted to cry but I didn’t dare
难道这种相处
Wasn’t this kind of interaction
不像我们梦寐以求的幸福
Similar to our desired relationship goal
走下去这一步是宽容还是痛苦
To continue,
Is it an act of leniency or suffering?

让我留在你身边(陈奕迅) : English Translation

陈奕迅 – Eason Chen
让我留在你身边 (Staying By Your Side)
作词 / Lyricist:唐汉霄 (Hamshor)
作曲 / Composer:唐汉霄 (Hamshor)
电影【摆渡人】主题曲 (Movie “See You Tomorrow” Theme Song)

我从来不说话
I don’t speak
因为我害怕 没有人回答
Because I’m afraid that no one will reply
我从来不挣扎
I don’t struggle
因为我知道 这世界太大
Because I know that the world is too big

太多时间浪费 太多事要面对
Too much time to waste, too many problems to face
太多已无所谓
Too many things that don’t matter
太多难辨真伪 太多纷扰是非
Too many truths and falsehoods that we can’t distinguish
Too many rights and wrongs that we can’t understand
在你身边是谁
But who is the one staying by your side?

最渺小的我 有大大的梦
I am small but I have a big dream
时间向前走一定只有路口没有尽头
As time makes its way forward
There is no end but only more choices to make
纷纷扰扰这个世界 所有的了解
So much to understand in this troubling world
只要 让我留在你身边
Please let me stay by your side

最渺小的我 有大大的梦
I am small but I have a big dream
我愿意安静的活在每个有你的角落
I’m willing to live quietly at any corner with your presence
如果生活还有什么 会让你难过
If there’re things in life that could make you sad
别怕 让我留在你身边
Don’t be afraid, let me stay by your side
都陪你渡过
We’ll pull through everything together

最渺小的我 最卑微的梦
I am small with the most insignificant dream
我发现这世界没有那么那么的不同
I realize that the world has remained pretty much the same
现实如果对你不公 别计较太多
If reality treats you unfairly
Let’s not bother too much
走吧 暴风雨后的彩虹
Let’s go and chase the rainbow after the storm

也许会落空 也许会普通
It may be ordinary
It may be disappointing
也许这庸庸碌碌的黑白世界你不懂
You may not understand the mediocrity of this monochrome world
生命中所有的路口 绝不是尽头
But all the hard choices in life are never the end
别怕 让我留在你身边
Don’t be afraid, let me stay by your side
都陪你度过
We will pull through everything together.

监制 / Studio Manager:陈辉阳 (Keith Chan)

朋友已走 刚升职的你举杯到凌晨还未够 用尽心机拉我手
Friends had left,
You who just got promoted raised your cups till midnight with no intention to stop,
Trying all means to keep hold of my hand,
缠在我颈背后 说你男友有事忙是借口 说到终于饮醉酒
Wrapping your arms around my neck,
Your boyfriend being busy was just an excuse,
An excuse for you to get drunk

情侣会走 刚失恋的你哭干眼泪前来自首 寂寞因此牵我手
Partners would leave,
You who just broke up came to me with swollen eyes,
Being lonely, you held my hand,
除下了他手信后 我已得到你没有
After removing your love-token,
Will I be able to finally call you mine?
但你我至少往后 成为了密友
But at least from then on,
We became close friends

闭起双眼你最挂念谁 眼晴张开身边竟是谁
Closing your eyes, who do you miss the most?
Open your eyes, who is the one sitting beside?
感激车站里 尚有月台能让我们满足到落泪
Thankful for the presence of a platform at the station,
Allowing us to satisfy our souls till we tear

拥不拥有也会记住谁 快不快乐留在身体里
You can never forget that person,
Whether or not you can declare possession,
Let it stay in your body,
Be it happiness or sadness,
爱若能够永不失去 何以你今天竟想找寻伴侣
If love can last forever,
Why are you now still looking for a partner?

谁也会走 当相恋的你先知我们原来未够 借故松开我的手
Anyone would leave,
You who just fell in love predicted that we were not meant to be,
An excuse to let go of my hand,
藏在贴纸相背后 我这苦心开过没有
Hidden behind the neoprint, had my love ever been uncovered,
但试过散心旅游 如何答没有
How could I say no to that after travelling miles,
Trying to put you behind

闭起双眼我最挂念谁 眼晴张开身边竟是谁
Closing my eyes, who do I miss the most?
Open my eyes, who is the one sitting beside?
感激车站里 尚有月台曾让我们满足到落泪
Thankful for the presence of the platform at the station,
which had allowed us to satisfy our souls till we tear

拥不拥有也会记住谁 快不快乐有天总过去
You can never forget that person,
Whether or not you can declare possession,
It will never stay,
Be it happiness or sadness,
爱若为了永不失去 谁勉强娱乐过谁
If love is to last forever,
Who has tried to fool one another?
爱若难以放进手里 何不将这双手放进心里
If love can’t be placed into our hands,
Why not placing our hands into our heart?

时间会走 当失恋的我开始与旁人携着手 但什么可以拥有
Time would pass,
I who just broke up began to hold another’s hand,
But what can I truly keep in possession?
缠在那颈背后 最美丽长发未留在我手 我也开心饮过酒
Wrapping around her neck,
The most beautiful hair slipped away from my hands,
Recalling the happy moments…
