最近又在我的 MP3 player 裡聽到這首歌
覺得它的歌詞寫得真好
所以來和大家分享一下
這首歌有兩個版本
原唱者是美國鄉村女歌手 Lee Ann Womack
後來前英國男孩團體 Boyzone 主唱 Ronan Keating (羅南) 也有翻唱
兩個版本都不錯
大家可以在另一視窗開啟 Youtube 的連結, 邊聽邊看歌詞
Womack 版本: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV-Z1YwaOiw
附歌詞字幕版本: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2SfmcNg8js
Ronan Keating 版本: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbJruWd6bmU
這首歌的內容是對一個人的期許和祝福
以下是它的歌詞和解說:
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
(我希望你永遠不會失去對奇蹟的感動)
You get your fill to eat
(永遠有足夠的食物)
But always keep that hunger
(但仍能保有一分飢餓)
(: 這當然是比喻的說法, 意思是希望對方能心想事成, 但卻不會因太舒服自滿而停止努力追求目標)
May you never take one single breath for granted
(願你永遠不會將生命中的任何一刻視為理所當然)
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
(願上天讓你永遠在愛中不虞匱乏)
I hope you still feel small When you stand by the ocean
(希望你在面對大海時仍感受得到自己的渺小)
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
(每當你碰壁時, 會有另一扇門為你開啟)
Promise me you’ll give faith a fighting chance
(答應我, 你永遠會給信仰一個機會)
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
(當你面臨要逃避還是勇敢面對時)
I hope you dance I hope you dance
(希望你會選擇勇敢面對)
(這句是很美的比喻, 但一定要看原文才有味道.
所謂 sit it out 是指在跳舞的場合
寧可坐在場邊, 略過一首曲子不跳)
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
( 希望你永遠不會畏懼前方的高山阻礙)
Never settle for the path of least resistance
(永遠不會退縮而改選一條障礙最少的道路)
Living might mean taking chances But they’re worth taking
(活下去也許代表將承擔風險, 但是絕對值得)
Lovin’ might be a mistake But it’s worth making
(你或許會所愛非人, 但會是值得嘗試的錯誤)
Don’t let some hell bent heart Leave you bitter
(別讓那些憤世嫉俗的人影響你)
When you come close to selling out Reconsider
(當你很想要放棄自己的堅持時, 再多考慮一下)
(好愛這句!)
Give the heavens above More than just a passing glance
(對頭頂上的藍天多看幾眼) And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance
(Where those years have gone)
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)
結論是: 希望大家都用勇敢的態度面對人生吧!!
加油!!! Fight on!!
