[More Than Blue Netflix Series Theme Song]

你没带走 所有的思念
You did not take away,
All my thoughts for you
请退回我的抱歉 请讨厌我的讨厌
Please return my apologies,
Please hate my intolerable deeds
完整的故事 不完整的圆
A complete story of an incomplete story
最悲伤的事 是我还在原点
The saddest thing is that,
I have never moved a step from the starting point

Advertisements

我也厌倦 廉价的誓言
I am also tired of meretricious promises
依赖着你的依赖 却还期待着期待
Relying on your reliance on me,
Yet I’m hoping for a chance to hope
卑微的字眼 配合的表演
All I have are mediocre words,
To go along with your wishes
最悲伤的事 是你不拖不欠
The saddest thing is that,
You made a clean exit

Advertisements

别回头 每当你又亏欠我
Don’t look back,
You won’t know how much you owe me
日日夜夜 近近远远
Day and night,
Near and far
感觉会替代感觉
Feelings will replace feelings
遗憾从未走远 只是幸福已经不见
Regrets have not gone far,
Yet happiness is no longer in sight

Advertisements

给自己 一个不爱的理由
Finding myself a reason not to love
真真切切 隐隐约约
It was true yet gentle,
Faint yet genuine
寂寞表现了表现
Loneliness has expressed an expression
尽管下雨的街头 也曾有你的守候
Rain or shine, you were always there for me

Advertisements

我学习著 潮汐的时间
I’m learning about tide times
提醒着你的离开 却存在我的存在
Reminding me of your absence yet reminded me of my presence
孤独的永远 轻抚著从前
As I gently caress the past, loneliness will live with me forever
最悲伤的事 是我们还想念
The saddest thing is that we have never stopped missing
别回头 每当你又亏欠我
Don’t look back,
You won’t know how much you owe me
日日夜夜 近近远远
Day and night,
Near and far
感觉会替代感觉
Feelings will replace feelings
遗憾从未走远 只是幸福已经不见
Regrets have not gone far,
Yet happiness is no longer in sight

Advertisements

给自己 一个不爱的理由
Finding myself a reason not to love
真真切切 隐隐约约
It was true yet gentle,
Faint yet genuine
寂寞表现了表现
Loneliness has expressed an expression
尽管下雨的街头 也曾有你的守候
Rain or shine, you were always there for me

Advertisements


给我们 一个相遇的借口
Giving ourselves an excuse to meet again
心心念念 轻轻浅浅
Longing and yearning, lightly and gently
眷恋执著著眷恋
Nothing can stop me from missing you dearly
再次重逢的午后 会是悲伤的尽头
The day of reunion shall be the end of all sadness

Translated by PinkOlifant.

说真的,第一次听到这首歌,我心存偏见。我太爱电影版的主题曲《有一种悲伤》了,我不相信有另一首歌能说着同个故事并取代它。我的“相信”没有错。

这首歌不是为了取代《有一种悲伤》。这部影集版不是为了取代电影版。

影集版多了一层故事,让我发现相同的悲伤可以以不同的方式呈现。不得不佩服“悲伤”啊。

这首词难翻死了。“依赖着你的依赖”、“眷恋执着着眷恋”、“寂寞表现了表现”…拆解文字背后的意思后本该开心,结果却更悲伤了。

有些句子,在我还没看完影集版时一直想不通,看完后更能明白其中想表达的。

若不看影集版,也许这首歌还不至于那么悲伤呢。

【原创影剧《火神的眼泪》片头曲】
[Netflix Original Series “Tears of Fire” Theme Song]

“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

【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.

Translated by PinkOlifant.

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!

别让我走远(林宥嘉): English Translation

公视【我们与恶的距离】主题曲
Taiwan Drama Series 【The World Between Us】Theme Song

整个世界在腐烂
The whole world is rotting
腐烂的都与我无关
Whatever that is rotten has nothing to do with me
这黑暗 我多习惯
I am used to this darkness
习惯到不再需要看
So used to it that I don’t even need to open my eyes again

我曾在黑暗顶端
I was at the peak of darkness
以为光的距离很短
Thinking that light is within reach
想去攀 又跌下来
Tried to climb towards it but fell again
我还能不能再期待
Can I still have hope?

don’t you stay?
多看我一眼
Take one more glance at me
无视我的脸 任何疲倦
Ignore all the weariness on my face
看穿我最脆弱的防备
See through my weak defence
沉默以对 都无所谓
It’s alright even if you remain silent
任何角落都没差别
Wherever you are, it doesn’t make a difference

don’t you stay?
陪在我身边
Right by my side
无视这世界 任何崩裂
Ignore any destruction of the world
看进我所深陷的深渊
Look into the deep valley where I am stuck in
让我感觉 黑暗里面
Let me feel that even in the dark
光线是抓得到的线
Light rays are ropes of hope

让我感觉 黑暗里面
Let me feel that in the dark
光线越炽热越强烈
Light rays will be the brightest

if you stay
陪在我身边
Right by my side
凝视我的脸 所有狼狈
Gaze at all the weariness of my face
照亮我阴暗的每一面
Shining light on every facet of my darkness
不顾一切 包围一切
Regardless of anything,
Enveloping everything
光线里别让我走远
In the presence of light rays,
Do not let me drift away…

电影【飞驰人生】主题曲
Movie 【Pegasus】Theme Song

在某个清晨 回望我一生
Looking back at my life on a fine morning
活得虽认真 却微小如尘
Though I’ve lived with all my heart,
I’m just an insignificant body

想要唱首歌 去唱哭别人
Hoping that the song I’m singing would bring tears to someone’s eyes
最后却是我 满脸泪痕
In the end, it was my face with tears streaming

早告别青春 活成了别人
I’ve long departed from youth,
Living to become another self
经历的时代 已如此陌生
The generation which I’ve lived has become a past with little familiarity

年少时的话 又不敢承认
Words spoken during youth,
No longer do I dare to admit them
低头在人海 浮浮沉沉
Dropping my head in the crowd,
My life has been filled with ups and downs

我的一半人生 飘荡就像只风筝
Half of my life,
I’ve drifted like a kite
如果命运是风 什么又是我的绳
If my wind is fate, would would be my string?

我的一半人生 冷暖就让我自己过问
Half of my life,
Let me take care of my own happiness and sorrows
有热爱有恨 有未知的前程
There’s passion, there’s hate,
There’s the unknown future lying ahead.
