灵魂歌手开唱瞬间

The moment a genuine singer started singing
能击碎万颗心
he is able to smash ten thousand hearts
他不属于瞬间他属于永恒
He doesn’t belong to the second but to eternity
那些感动了自己的歌
The songs that originally touched himself
是最好的证明
are the best testament to it
如今不知多少人听
Now countless people have listened to them
在万人体育场
in the grand stadium with breacher seating for tens of thousands of people

金色的跑道旁
Beside the golden running tracks
人们工作繁忙
people are busy working
今晚有人登场
Someone is going to get on the stage tonight
等待消失的光
Waiting for daylight to vanish
看到人们入场
Seeing people enter the stadium
他们有些疯狂
They are a little crazed
我们有些紧张
We are a little jittery

灵魂歌手开唱瞬间
The moment a genuine singer started singing
能击碎万颗心
he is able to smash ten thousand hearts
面对那些无法形容的表情
In the face of their indescribable contenances
那些寂寞的从前
Those lonely moments of the past
被眼前的喧嚣淹没
are now drowned out by the clamor before our eyes
让我有些依依不舍
making me a bit unwilling to leave

他和他的乐队 演奏出的乐章
The music performed by him and his band
陪伴孤独的人
keep the lonely souls company
一夜一夜播放
Night after night the songs were played
他经历过的事
The things he experienced
他深爱过的人
the people he loves deeply
他选择走的路
and the path he chose
不是愤怒 不是疯了
not out of anger or insanity
因为 灵魂歌手开唱瞬间
Because…the moment a genuine singer started singing
能击碎万颗心
he is able to smash ten thousand hearts
他不属于瞬间他属于永恒
He does not belong to the instant but to eternity
那些感动了地狱的歌
The songs that moved hell
是最好的证明
is the best testament to that

你还想掩饰什么
What do you still want to hide?
电视里的节目
The programs on TV
让人看的想哭
make me want to weep
我的那些朋友
Those friends of mine
争先恐后
have been vying,
争着去做奴隶
vying to be slaves
急着抛弃自己
rushing to abandon their true selves
你本来是英雄
You were a hero
直到变的 更加恐惧
until you became more terrifed

灵魂歌手开唱瞬间
The moment a genuine singer started singing
能击碎万颗心
he is able to smash ten thousand hearts
因为曾经的日子是那么安静
Because the days of the past were so tranquil
他和他最好的朋友
He and his best friends
创造不可复制的经历
created the irreproducible experiences
那是只有一次的青春
They were their one-and-only youth

Repeat *** once

他们是灵魂歌手
They are the genuine singers

Repeat the above line 7 times

守护灵魂的歌手
the singers who are soul guardians

Note: The song is about singers who perform with their heart and soul. They don’t betray their own souls. They sing for lonely souls. They are the real singers. While the title is a combination of “soul” and “singer,” I think it is misleading to translate it as “Soul Singer” or “Soulful Singer.”
