三寸日光-梁静茹 (Three Inches of Sunlight-Fish Leong)

 

深秋山顶风微凉
The late autumn’s cool breeze dances at the mountaintop
恋人并肩傻傻看夕阳
Lovers gaze at the sunset side by side
仰望 你为我敞开的天窗
I look up at the skylight you openned for me
一段日光落在手心 三寸长
And a length of sunlight, slides into my hand, three inches long
你说 秋天掌上的日光
You said, (this is) the autumn sunlight in the palm
一寸 能许一个愿望
One inch is for one wish

希望我爱的人健康 个性很善良
I wish my love can be healthy and kind-hearted
大大手掌能包容我 小小的倔强
His big palm can tolerate my little stubborness
你的浪漫只有我懂欣赏
Only I know how to appreciate your romantic side
能让眼泪长出翅膀飞离我脸庞
which would give wings to tears to fly away from my cheeks

还想每天用咖啡香 不让你赖床
I also wish to lure you out of bed every day with the aroma of coffee
周末傍晚踩着单车 逛黄昏市场
and to take a bike ride to the market on weekend evenings
我的浪漫只有你懂欣赏
Only you know how to appreciate my romantic side
就让每个台风晚上不恐慌紧张
May every typhoon night be free of worries

第三个愿望 还不想讲
As for the third wish, I don’t want to tell you yet
你自己想一想 问微笑的月光
You think for yourself, or ask the riant moonlight

一人一支闪闪仙女棒
We each have a sparkling fairy stick
好像我们指尖有星光
as if there were star light at our fingertips
很烫 可是很灿烂很漂亮
So hot, yet so bright and pretty
一点点光捧在手上像太阳
The flickering light cupped by our hands is like the sun

等到 世界末日你再讲
Don’t tell until the end of the world
那个愿望 一起握紧不放
Let’s keep a grip on that wish and never let it go

This is for My Handsome Trainee ❤ ;)

崇拜-梁静茹 (Adoration/J’adore-Fish Leong)

***

你的姿态 你的青睐
Your stance, your good graces
我存在 在你的存在
I existed, in your existence

你以为爱 就是被爱
You think that love, just means being loved
你挥霍了我的崇拜
You lavished my adoration for you

我活了 我爱了 我都不管了
I’ve lived, I’ve loved, and I don’t care now
心爱到疯了恨到算了 就好了
Let the heart love till it goes crazy and hate till it gives up, then I will be fine

可能的 可以的 真的可惜了
What was possible, and what was probable, turned out to be truly regrettable
幸福好不容易 怎么你却不敢了呢
Happiness is really hard to attain, but how could you lose the courage when we were so close to it
我还以为我们能 不同于别人
I thought we could be different from others
我还以为不可能的 不会不可能
I thought what was impossible could stop being impossible

 

Repeat ***

你的姿态 你的青睐
Your stance, your good graces
我存在 在你的存在
I existed, in your existence

你以为爱 就是被爱
You think that love, just means being loved
你挥霍了我的崇拜
You lavished my adoration for you

风筝有风 海豚有海
Kites rely on the wind, dolphins rely on the sea
我存在 在我的存在
but I exist, in my existence

所以明白 所以离开
So I understand, so I leave
所以不再为爱而爱
So I no longer love for the sake of love
自己存在 在你之外
I exist in my own right, apart from you

拥抱-五月天 (Embrace-Mayday)

 

I am glad to discover that this song was included in an album for homosexual audiences.

 

脱下长日的假面 奔向梦幻的疆界
Stripping off the masque of the long day, I run to the realm of fantasy
南瓜马车的午夜 换上童话的玻璃鞋
In the midnight pumpkin carriage, I switched to the glass slippers in the fairy tale
让我享受这感觉 我是孤傲的蔷薇
Let me enjoy this feeling, I’m a proud and aloof rose
让我品尝这滋味 纷乱世界的不了解
Let me savor the feeling of not being understood by the chaotic world

昨天太近 明天太远 默默聆听那黑夜
Yesterday is too close, while tomorrow is too far away; I listen attentively to that dark night in silence
晚风吻尽 荷花叶 任我醉倒在池边
The night breeze covered the lotus leaves with kisses, leaving me dead drunk by the pond
等你清楚看见我的美 月光晒干眼泪
By the time you see my beauty, the moonlight would have dried up the tears

那一个人 爱我
That person loves me,
将我的手 紧握
keeping a firm grip on my hand
抱紧我 吻我 喔爱~~~ 别走
Hold me close, kiss me, oh love–don’t leave

隐藏自己的疲倦 表达自己的狼狈
Conceal my fatigue, express my awkwardness
放纵自己的狂野 找寻自己的明天
Set free my wildness, look for my tomorrow
向你要求的誓言 就算是你的谎言
Ask you for a promise, even if it’s just a lie
我需要爱的慰借 就算那爱已如潮水
I need the comfort of love, even if that love’s been flooding all over

昨天太近 明天太远 默默聆听那黑夜
Yesterday is too close, while tomorrow is too far away, so I listen attentively to that dark night in silence
晚风吻尽 荷花叶 任我醉倒在池边
The night breeze covered the lotus leaves with kisses, leaving me dead drunk by the pond
等你清楚看见我的美 月光晒干眼泪
By the time you see my beauty, the moonlight would have dried up the tears

那一个人 爱我
That person loves me,
将我的手 紧握
keeping a firm grip on my hand
抱紧我 吻我 喔爱~~~ 别走
Hold me close, kiss me, oh love–don’t leave

那一个人 爱我
That person loves me,
将我的手 紧握
keeping a firm grip on my hand
抱紧我 吻我 喔爱~~~ 别走
Hold me close, kiss me, oh love–don’t leave
抱紧我 吻我 喔爱~~~ 别走
Hold me close, kiss me, oh love–don’t leave
抱紧我 吻我 喔爱~~~
Hold me close, kiss me, oh love…

Chinese Pop Songs, My Favorite Songs

我怀念的-孙燕姿 (What I Miss about-Stefanie Sun)

 

我问为什么 那女孩传简讯给我
I asked why that girl texted me
而你为什么 不解释低着头沉默
And why you didn’t explain but lowered your head in silence
我该相信你很爱我
Should I believe that you’ve loved me too much
不愿意敷衍我
to take a perfunctory attitude towards me
还是明白 你已不想挽回什么
or realize that you’ve lost the will to save the relationship

想问为什么 我不再是你的快乐
I wanted to ask why I was no longer your happiness
可是为什么 却苦笑说我都懂了
But why did I smile painfully and say I’d understood everything

自尊常常将人拖着
Self-esteem often drags people along
把爱都走曲折
and makes love a tortuous path
假装了解是怕 真相太赤裸裸
I pretended I understood because I am afraid of the cruel truth
狼狈比失去难受
Feeling awkward is worse than losing you

我怀念的 是无话不说
What I miss about is how we talked about everything
我怀念的 是一起作梦
What I miss about is how we dreamt together
我怀念的 是争吵以后 还是想要爱你的冲动
What I miss about is after fights I still had the desire to love you

我记得那年生日
I remember that year’s birthday
也记得那一首歌
and remember that song
记得那片星空
and remember that starry night
最紧的右手
the tightest grip on my right hand
最暖的胸口
the warmest chest…

谁 记得
Who still remembers?
谁 忘了
And who forgot?

想问为什么 我不再是你的快乐
I wanted to ask why I was no longer your happiness
可是为什么 却苦笑说我都懂了
But why did I smile painfully and say I’d understood everything

自尊常常将人拖着
Self-esteem often drags people along
把爱都走曲折
and makes love a tortuous path
假装了解是怕 真相太赤裸裸
I pretended I understood because I am afraid of the cruel truth
狼狈比失去难受
Feeling awkward is worse than losing you

我怀念的 是无话不说
What I miss about is how we talked about everything
我怀念的 是一起作梦
What I miss about is how we dreamt together
我怀念的 是争吵以后 还是想要爱你的冲动
What I miss about is after fights I still had the desire to love you

我记得那年生日
I remember that year’s birthday
也记得那一首歌
and remember that song
记得那片星空
and remember that starry night
最紧的右手
the tightest grip on my right hand
最暖的胸口
the warmest chest…

谁 忘了
Who forgot…

我怀念的 是无言感动
What I miss about is the quiet touching moments
我怀念的 是绝对炽热
What I miss about is the absolute ardor
我怀念的 是你很激动 求我原谅抱得我都痛
What I yearn for is your agitated pleas for my forgiveness and your hugs that hurt me

我记得你在背后
I remember your standing behind me
也记得我颤抖着
and remember my shivering
记得感觉汹涌
and remember the flooding of feelings
最美的烟火
the most beautiful fireworks
最长的相拥
the longest hug

谁爱得太自由
Who loved with reckless abandon
谁过头太远了
Who went too far
谁要走我的心
Who took my heart
谁忘了那就是承诺
Who forgot that it was commitment

谁自顾自地走
Who went away without a care in the world
谁忘了看着我
Who forgot to look at me
谁让爱变沉重
Who made love become so heavy
谁忘了要给你温柔
Who forgot to give you tenderness

我怀念的
What I miss about…

我还有想要爱你的冲动
I still have the urge to love you
我记得那年生日
I remember that year’s birthday
也记得那一首歌
and remember that song
记得那片星空
and remember that starry night
最紧的右手
the tightest grip on my right hand
最暖的胸口
the warmest chest

我放手
I let go
我让座
I gave away my seat
假 洒脱
and feigned nonchalance
谁懂我多么不舍得
Who knows how I hated to leave you

太爱了
I loved so much
所以我
that I
没有哭
didn’t cry
没有说
didn’t speak
