<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?

champagne problems (taylor swift): 中文翻译

champagne problems (香槟的忧愁)
词曲 / songwriters:taylor swift (泰勒·斯威夫特) and william bowery [pseudonym of joe alwyn(乔·阿尔文)]
制作 / producer:taylor swift (泰勒·斯威夫特) and aaron dessner

You booked the night train for a reason
订了夜班车的你,一定有你的理由
So you could sit there in this hurt
好让自己与伤痛独处
Bustling crowds or silent sleepers
乘客熟睡的安宁与繁忙人群的喧嚣
You’re not sure which is worse
你不确定哪个更糟

Because I dropped your hand while dancing
因为我在跳舞的时候松开了你的手
Left you out there standing
留你在外独自站着
Crestfallen on the landing
心如刀割地站着
Champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁
Your mom’s ring in your pocket
你口袋装着你母亲的戒指
My picture in your wallet
你皮夹夹着我的照片
Your heart was glass, I dropped it
你的心如玻璃 我却放了手
Champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁

Advertisements

You told your family for a reason
告诉你的家人的理由
You couldn’t keep it in
是因为兴奋的你藏不住喜悦
Your sister splashed out on the bottle
你的妹妹开启了香槟 气泡喷洒了一地
Now no one’s celebrating
但现在连一个庆祝的人都没有

Dom Pérignon, you brought it
你带了唐培里侬
No crowd of friends applauded
却没有任何一个朋友祝贺
Your hometown skeptics called it
镇里的人都议论着说
Champagne problems
只不过是些香槟般的华丽忧愁
You had a speech, you’re speechless
准备了感言的你无语了
Love slipped beyond your reaches
爱情从你十指间溜走了
And I couldn’t give a reason
而我却一个理由都给不出
Champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁

Advertisements

Your Midas touch on the Chevy door
你的迈达斯之手触碰了雪佛兰的门
November flush and your flannel cure
十一月匆匆的经过, 你的衣裳让我取暖
“This dorm was once a madhouse”
“这个宿舍曾经是个疯人院”
I made a joke, “Well, it’s made for me”
我开了个玩笑说”这疯人院是精心为我制造的”
How evergreen, our group of friends
我们的朋友,多么努力保持最新消息的他们
Don’t think we’ll say that word again
那个词,再也不会有人说出口了
And soon they’ll have the nerve to deck the halls
不久后,他们就会有那个胆去重新布置
That we once walked through
我们曾经一起走过的大厅
One for the money, two for the show
一是为了钱 二是为了秀
I never was ready so I watch you go
我从来都没有准备好,所以我才会选择看着你走
Sometimes you just don’t know the answer
有时候你就是不懂答案是什么
‘Til someone’s on their knees and asks you
直到他向你下跪的那瞬间
“She would’ve made such a lovely bride
What a shame she’s fucked in the head,” they said
他们说:”只可惜,她不懂在想什么,不然她肯定会做个好新娘”
But you’ll find the real thing instead
但是终究你会找到真正的她
She’ll patch up your tapestry that I shred
她也会修补我所撕破的挂毯

Advertisements

And hold your hand while dancing
跳舞的时候她会抓紧你的手
Never leave you standing
不让你独自一人在外站着
Crestfallen on the landing
心如刀割地站着
With champagne problems
都是些如香槟般的华丽忧愁
Your mom’s ring in your pocket
你口袋装着你母亲的戒指
Her picture in your wallet
你皮夹会夹着她的照片
You won’t remember all my
你不会记得我那些
Champagne problems
如香槟般的华丽忧愁

You won’t remember all my
你不会记得我那些
Champagne problems
如香槟般的华丽忧愁…

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)

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…

Translated by PinkOlifant.

“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

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

Translated by PinkOlifant.

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.

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…

Translated by PinkOlifant.

谢谢那年的那个你
让我如今听情歌时
能感同身受
