我 (I Am What I Am)
作词 / Lyricist:林夕  (Albert Leung)
作曲 / Composer:张国荣 (Leslie Cheung)
编曲 / Arranger: 詹贤哲 (Chan Hsien Che)

I am what I am
我就是我
我永远都爱这样的我
I will love the way I am forever

快乐是 快乐的方式不只一种
Happiness is…There are plenty of ways to achieve happiness
最荣幸是 谁都是造物者的光荣
The greatest honour is that…we are all the pride of the Life Creator
不用闪躲 为我喜欢的生活而活
There is no need to hide…the way I prefer to live
不用粉墨 就站在光明的角落
There is no need for makeup…I willingly stand under the spotlight of scrutiny

我就是我 是颜色不一样的烟火
I am what I am,
Firework of a different colour
天空海阔 要做最坚强的泡沫
I want to be the bravest bubble,
In this world of endless oceans and roofless skies
我喜欢我 让蔷薇开出一种结果
I love what I am,
Let a rose plant bear flower of its liking
孤独的沙漠里 一样盛放的赤裸裸
Revealing every part of itself in the lonely desert

多么高兴 在琉璃屋中快乐生活
How happy I am,
To enjoy my life in the glass house
对世界说 什么是光明和磊落
Showing the world how to be fearless and true to oneself

我就是我 是颜色不一样的烟火
I am what I am,
Firework of a different colour
天空海阔 要做最坚强的泡沫
I want to be the bravest bubble,
In this world of endless oceans and roofless skies
我喜欢我 让蔷薇开出一种结果
I love what I am,
Let a rose plant bear flower of its liking
孤独的沙漠里 一样盛放的赤裸裸
Revealing every part of itself in the lonely desert

“我”是张国荣的歌,有国语版也有粤语版。2015年左右初听这首歌,没想到一首15岁的歌曲能打动当时20多岁的我。在这个不是很能包容差异的社会,许多人都活得很辛苦。当年身为双性恋者的哥哥(张国荣)也一样。与他关系很好的林夕,把张国荣的痛楚写成了优美的歌词,每一句都那么有画面感。

打从“追光者”开始,就很欣赏岑宁儿对歌的演绎。这首经典不是光靠演唱技巧的,世界观越宏大,就越能听出天空广阔。张国荣唱出了“光明和磊落”而岑宁儿唱出了她“喜欢的生活”。

【[鹿鼎记]片尾曲】

我什么都没有 
I have nothing
只是有一点吵
just some noise that I would make when I am around you
如果你感到寂寞 
If you feel lonely
我带给你热闹
I can make things lively
为你绕一绕 没有什么大不了
Revolving around you is no big deal
却可以让你微笑
As long as I can make you smile

其实我很烦恼 
I am troubled
只是你看不到
just that you can’t see it
如果我也不开心 
If I were to be unhappy
怕你转身就逃
I’m afraid that you might turn and leave

爱上一个人 
Loving someone
一定要让他相信 这世界多么美好
We have to make the person believe that the world is amazing
对每个人
Towards everyone
都说还好
I would claim that I am fine
我的心我的情你不需要明了
You don’t have to understand how I feel
只要我对你好
You only have to let me treat you well
这样的温柔你要不要
Would you want this kind of gentleness?

其实你爱我像谁 
Who would you like me to be?
扮演什么角色我都会
I can play any character
快不快乐我无所谓 
I do not care if I would be happy
为了你开心 
As long as you are happy
我忘记了累不累
Tiredness is nothing to me
其实你爱我像谁 
Who would you like me to be?
任何的表情我都能给
I can give you any kind of expression
Woo~在你身上学会流眼泪
Woo~From you,
I have learnt how to cry

【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?
