園遊會-周杰倫 Fun Fair-Jay Chou

作詞:方文山
Lyricist: Vincent Fang
作曲:周杰倫
Composer: Jay Chou
編曲:洪敬堯
Arranger: Hung Ching-yao

琥珀色黃昏像糖在很美的遠方 你的臉沒有化妝我卻瘋狂愛上
The amber-colored dusk resembles candies, residing in the beautiful distance. Your face was not covered by makeup, but I crazily fell in love with it
思念跟影子在傍晚一起被拉長 我手中那張入場券陪我數羊
Both my longing and my shadow were stretched at dusk. The admission ticket in my hand accompanied me to count sheep

薄荷色草地芬芳像風沒有形狀 我卻能夠牢記你的氣質跟臉龐
The fragrance of the mint-colored meadows is like the wind, formless. Yet I can remember your face and grace very well
冷空氣跟琉璃在清晨很有透明感 像我的喜歡被你看穿
The crisp air and the colored glaze are crystal clear in the early morning, just like my affection easily perceived by you

攤位上一朵艷陽 我悄悄出現你身旁
[You were] a bright sun at the vendor’s booth. I quietly appeared by your side
你慌亂的模樣 我微笑安靜欣賞
The way you looked when you were flustered , I smiled and quietly admired it

我頂著大太陽 只想為你撐傘 你靠在我肩膀 深呼吸怕遺忘
I braved the blazing sun, only wishing to open an umbrella over your head. You leaned against my shoulder. I breathed deepily lest I forget [this moment]
因為撈魚的蠢遊戲我們開始交談 多希望話題不斷 園遊會永不打烊
Because of the silly goldfish scooping game we started talking. I wish we would never run out of topics and the fun fair would last forever

汽球在我手上 我牽著你瞎逛 有話想對你講 你眼睛卻裝忙
The balloon was in my hand. I held your hands and we sauntered about. I had something to tell you, but your eyes pretended to be busy
雞蛋糕跟妳嘴角果醬我都想要嘗 園遊會影片在播放 這個世界約好一起逛
The [Taiwanese] egg waffle and the jam at the corner of your mouth—I want to taste both of them. The film screening continued at the fun fair. We made a pact to roam this world together

陰天-莫文蔚 Overcast-Karen Mok

作曲:李宗盛/周國儀
Composer: Jonathan Lee/Zhou Guoyi
作詞:李宗盛
Lyricist: Jonathan Lee

陰天 在不開燈的房間 當所有思緒都一點一點沉澱
Overcast. In a room where the light is dimmed. When the train of thought gradually settles.
愛情究竟是精神鴉片 還是世紀末的無聊消遣
Is love by nature the spiritual opium, or the silly end-of-century pastime
香煙 氳成一灘光圈 和他的照片就擺在手邊
[The smoke from the] cigarette, enshrouded the view and formed an aperture—the picture with him is close at hand
傻傻兩個人 笑得多甜
Two silly lovebirds, grinned so happily

開始總是分分鐘都妙不可言 誰都以為熱情它永不會減
At first, every minute was incredible. You all thought the enthusiasm would never wear off
除了激情褪去後的 那一點點倦
except for that little bit of fatigue after the passion petered out
也許像誰說過的貪得無厭 活該應了誰說過的不知檢點
Maybe [you were] insatiably greedy as someone put it, so you deserved the bad karma for being indiscreet in speech and conduct as someone put it
總之那幾年 感性贏了理性那一面
In a nutshell, over those years, emotion beat reason

陰天 在不開燈的房間 當所有思緒都一點一點沉澱
Overcast. In a room where the light is dimmed. When the train of thought gradually settles
愛恨情慾裡的疑點 盲點 呼之欲出 那麼明顯
The uncertain and the neglected parts in your love, hate, and desire, are on the verge of coming out into the open. So obvious
女孩 通通讓到一邊 這歌裡的細微末節就算都體驗
Girls, you should all step aside. The details in this song—even if you have experienced them all first-hand
若想真明白 真要好幾年
but if you want to truly understand them, it will take several years

回想那一天 喧鬧的喜宴
Recall that day—the boisterous wedding banquet
耳邊響起的究竟是序曲或完結篇
What was played by your ear—was it a prelude or a finale?

感情不就是你情我願 最好愛恨扯平兩不相欠
Isn’t love all about mutual consent? The best scenario is to be even and fairly split love and hate
感情說穿了 一人掙脫的 一人去撿
The reality of love is: What one breaks free from is picked up by someone else
男人大可不必百口莫辯 女人實在無須楚楚可憐
Men don’t need to try to argue it away; women really don’t have to pretend to delicate and charming
總之那幾年 你們兩個沒有緣
In a nutshell, over those years, you two didn’t have the luck [to sustain the marriage]
傻傻兩個人 笑得多甜
Two silly lovebirds, grinned so happily

寂寞的戀人啊-莫文蔚 Oh Lonely Lovers-Karen Mok

作詞:李宗盛
Lyricist: Jonathan Lee
作曲:王一隆
Composer: Yi-Long Wang

固執的7-11 尾聲啦 夏天
The stubborn 7/11, it is almost over—the summer
太亮了 霓虹燈 天空的顏色好淺
Too bright, the neon light—the color of the sky is so light
傻子才爭吵啊 落葉是樹的風險
Only the fools fight; fallen leaves are the risk taken by the trees
情感是偶發的事件 用偏方治好失眠
Love is a chance event. Cure your insomnia with folk remedies

滿意你愛的嗎 有何新發現
Are you satisfied with whom you love? Any new discoveries?
溫柔的實驗 戀愛的肢體語言
The experiment of tenderness; the body language of love
努力愛一個人 和幸福並無關聯
Diligently loving someone, has nothing to do with happiness
小心啊 愛與不愛之間 離得不是太遠
Be careful: Between loving and not loving, the distance is not that long

吞下寂寞的戀人啊 試著辛苦的去瞭解
Oh the lovers who swallowed loneliness, they toil to understand [their partners],
卻是遺憾少見 有誰 如願 真是讓人不甘心啊(1)
but it is a pity that they rarely succeed. So hard to accept it (1)
卻是遺憾少見 有誰 如願 真是讓人不開心啊(2)
but it is a pity that they rarely succeed. So upsetting it is (2)
卻是遺憾少見 有誰 如願 真是讓人不服氣啊(3)
but it is a pity that they rarely succeed. So hard to be convinced [by it] (3)

越是相愛的兩個人 越是容易讓彼此疼
The more two people love each other, the more easier it is for them to hurt each other
疲憊了 放手了 不值得 不要了
You are exhausted, you let it go. [They] don’t deserve [your love], dump them

(若不是因為愛著你)
(If not for loving you,)
怎麼會夜深還沒睡意
how come I stay wide awake late at night?
每個念頭都關於你
Every thought is about you
我想你 想你 好想你
I miss you, miss you, miss you so much

(若不是因為愛著你)
(If not for loving you,)
怎會有不安的情緒
how come I have anxiety
每個莫名的日子裡
Every average day
我想你 想你 好想你
I miss you, miss you, miss you so much

愛是折磨人的東西
Love is a tormenting thing
卻又捨不得這樣放棄
but I am unwilling to give it up
不停揣測你的心裡
I keep guessing whether my name
可有我姓名
habits your mind

愛是我唯一的秘密
Love is my only secret
讓人心碎卻又著迷
it is heartbreaking yet mezmerizing
無論是用什麼言語
No matter which language I speak in
只會(只會)思念你
all I do (all I do) is missing you

(若不是因為愛著你)
(If not for loving you,)
怎會不經意就嘆息
how come I sigh inadvertently?
有種不完整的心情
I have a sense of incompleteness
愛你 愛你
Love you, love you,
(愛著你)
(loving you)

作詞:李宗盛
Lyricist: Jonathan Lee
作曲:李宗盛
Composer: Jonathan Lee
編曲:Mac Chew
Arranger: Mac Chew

***
忘了關 那扇門 那扇窗 電光 石火 秋涼
Forgot to shut that door, that window—a flash of lightning, a spark from clashing stones, a string of crisp fall days
孩子離開了鞦韆 最快要到七月再回來盪
The kids left the trapeze; at the earliest it will be July when they will swing on it again
影劇版依然沸沸揚揚 像極了槍聲大作的靶場
The Film & TV page is still abuzz [with rumors and gossip], closely resembling a shooting range replete with gun shots
工作了一整天只喝了 一碗冷湯
I’ve worked all day; I only downed a bowl of cold soup

嗚~只有愛讓人心情舒暢
Woo…only love makes one’s mind at ease
嗚~愛讓人興致高昂
Woo…love keeps one’s spirits high
向左 側身 半躺 等體溫下降
To the left, leaning sideways, reclining, I wait for my body to cool down
電視播吸煙對懷孕的影響 是誰在十二樓嚷嚷
The TV is preaching the impact of smoking on pregnancy. Who is arguing noisily on the twelfth floor?
日子像是道灰牆 罵它也沒有迴響 呀呀呀呀呀呀呀
Life is like a grey wall—you can scold it but it won’t respond, ya ya ya ya ya
女優與假知青的戀情終於曝光
The actress and the fake educated young man’s secret relationship finally came to light

嗚~只有愛讓人心情舒暢
Woo…only love makes one’s mind at ease
嗚~愛讓人興緻高昂
Woo…love keeps one’s spirits high
向左 側身 半躺 攏絡睡意上床
To the left, leaning sideways, reclining, I enlist drowsiness and go to bed
電視裡師奶被催眠在現場 十八台熱情奔放
In the TV program mature wives are hypnotized on the spot; Channel 18 is jaunty and bold
日子像是道灰牆 罵它沒有迴響 呀呀呀呀呀
Life is like a grey wall—you can scold it but it won’t respond, ya ya ya ya ya
好像越不想怎樣 就越是怎樣
It seems like the more I detest something, the more life gives it to me

Repeat *** once

假動作-房祖名 Feint-Jaycee Fong Jo Ming

Note: This is the theme song of Temptation of Wife on GTV in Taiwan.

作詞:小寒
Lyricist: Xiaohan
作曲:黃韻仁
Composer: Eric Ng
編曲:黃韻仁
Arranger: Eric Ng

要不是他在眼前對你的愛憐
If not for his tender affection for you before my eyes
我想愛你的心將持續冬眠
I think my heart which loves you will continue its hibernation
夢被叫醒如何能疏遠
Now that the dream was awaken, how I can still keep my distance [from you]?

要不是你在耳邊對我吐真言
If you did not whisper the truth in my ear after a few glasses of wine
我想我會怎樣和你沒關聯
I think I wouldn’t have gotten involved with you
從此連見到你的臉 也能免則免
But from then on I even tried to avoid seeing your face as much I could

***我明白知覺
I understand that one’s perception
會因為視覺聽覺觸覺產生錯覺
might produce illusion because of the misleading visual, auditory, and tactile senses
於是要你誤解
So I’d rather you misunderstand me
也不要你瞭解
than get to know me

揮揮手只是 假動作
A wave of the hand is just my feint
掩飾我 我深愛過的線索
concealing the clues that I deeply loved you
不該無理剝奪
I shouldn’t have unreasonably deprived you of
該你的幸福結果
the happiness you deserve

就算冷漠是 假動作
Even if my cold detachment is a pretense
沒有錯 我背負心碎藏躲
It is not wrong. I hide from you with my broken heart
獨自人海漂泊
roaming the world alone
為的只是要你能忘了我
only to make you forget me

要不是我開始在深陷的邊緣
If I weren’t on the verge of getting started to be deeply involved [meaning getting started to fall in love with you]
沒想到那麼快就必須棄權
I wouldn’t expect to have to waive the right [to love you] after such a short time
割捨所有的可能不允許剩一點
and erase all the possibilities whatsoever

Repeat *** once

兩人禁不起流言的挑撥
Couples can’t stand the discord sown between them by rumors
感情體質脆弱
as love by nature is vulnerable
人的骨子裡難免有許多
Many traumas and [scruples about] impropriety
痛和不妥 盡量躲過
habit people’s souls, so they have to dodge [risks] as best as they can
才能好好生活
to live a peaceful life

Repeat the last two verses of ***

嘿 請你忘了我
Hey, please forget me

就讓我先開始說 這些日子怎麼過
Let me start by talking about how I have been doing these days
愛過恨過結果昨天分手
I experienced love and hate, and in the end I broke up yesterday
還辦了一支手機 搭配舊的CALL機
I got a mobile phone to pair with the old pager
問題是 三天沒有響過一通
The problem is, for three days I didn’t hear it ring once

***
記得當年我們啊 理想說不停
I remember back then we couldn’t stop talking about our dreams
如今JACK有孩子結了婚 而ROSE看破紅塵
Now Jack has a kid and got married, while Rose saw through the world of mortals [Buddhist idiom for being disillusioned with human society]
我的同學 不再是同學 是孩子的爹
My classmates are no longer students, but fathers of kids
我的同學 他一家五口 反覆吃喝拉撒睡
My classmate has a family of five who eat, drink, shit, piss, and sleep day after day [meaning repeating the ordinary daily routine]

ANDY忙著玩股票 JEAN拉保險有一套
Andy is busy having fun with stocks; Jean is a gifted insurance agent
(KEVIN忙著拍廣告 AMY推銷冒牌錶)
(KEVIN is busy shooting commercials; Amy sells replica watches)
(SAMUEL片場跑龍套 TOM為貸款到處跑)
(SAMUEL plays small roles on the set; Tom runs around to secure loans)
我的同學 都不再單純 只有老師沒改變
My classmates are no longer innocent; only the teacher did not change

看看現在每一天 都要努力衝向前
Look at our current life. We all have to strive hard and race forward
週休二日總算可以相約見面
Thanks to the weekend we can finally get together.

Repeat *** twice with lyrics in the parentheses
