想自由-林宥嘉 (Yearning for Freedom-Yoga Lin)

每个人都缺乏什么
We are all short of something
我们才会瞬间就不快乐
so we can fall into a funk within a second
单纯很难 包袱很多
Hard to stay simple, burdens abound
已经很勇敢 还是难过
We’ve been pretty brave, but we are still depressed

许多事情都有选择
There are options for many things
只是往往事后我才懂得
I know that only in hindsight
情绪很烦 说话很冲
We are cross and grumpy, we are curt and blunt
人和人的沟通 有时候没有用
Sometimes communication is fruitless

或许只有你 懂得我
Maybe only you understand me
所以你没逃脱
So you didn’t run away from me
一边在泪流 一边紧抱我
You shed tears but hold me close
小声的说 多么爱我
and say quietly you love me so

只有你 懂得我 就像被困住的野兽
Only you understand me: I’m like a caged animal
在摩天大楼 渴求自由
trapped in the skyscraper, yearning for freedom

一路嗅着追着美梦
I sniffed and chased my dreams all the way
爬上屋顶意外跌得好重
to the roof, only to fall so heavily
不觉得痛 是觉得空
I didn’t feel pain, but I felt empty

城市的幻影有千百种
Mirages of the city vary
就算爱也会变冷的
Even love may turn cold
可是现在抱的你是暖的
But now I am warm with you in my arms
我不晓得 我不舍得
I have no idea of the future, but I don’t want to
为将来的难测就放弃这一刻
forsake this moment simply because the unpredictability of the future

或许只有你 懂得我
Maybe only you understand me
所以你没逃脱
So you didn’t flee
一边在泪流 一边紧抱我
You shed your tears and hold me close
小声的说 多么爱我
and say quietly you love me so

只有你 懂得我 就像被困住的野兽
Only you understand me: I’m like a caged animal
在摩天大楼 渴求自由
trapped in the skyscraper, yearning for freedom
