分享一首歌:

father:(父亲的话)

It’s not time to make a change
现在还不是做出改变的时候
Just relax–take it easy
请放松点吧,别紧张
You’re still young–that’s your fault
你还是太年轻了,那是你的不足
There’s so much you have to know
你需要学习的东西还很多
Find a girl, settle down
找个女孩安定下来,不再浪迹天涯
If you want, you can marry
如果你想,那么你可以步入婚姻的殿堂
Look at me–I am old
看着我,我已逐渐老去
But I’m happy
但我却很活得很开心
I was once like you are now
我也曾像你这样年轻过
And I know that it’s not easy
而且我知道那并不容易
To be calm when you’ve found
当你发觉外头有些奇妙的事情时
Something going on
务必保持冷静
But take your time–think a lot
凡事三思而后行
While think of everthing you’ve got
思考你所拥有的一切
For you will still be here tomorrow
因为明天你的人依然会在这儿
But your dreams may not…
而你的梦想却并非如此……
son:(儿子的回答)
How could I try to explain?
我该怎么和你解释呢?
When I do–it turns away again
事实总是和意愿背道而驰
And it’s always been the same
历史不断犯着相似的错误
Same old story
同样的故事正在发生
From the moment I could talk
那我能够说话的那一刻起
I was ordered to listen
我就被要求必须倾听
Now there’s a way, and I know
现在,路在眼前,我知道
That I have to go away
我必须要走了(要离开父亲的庇护,独自去闯荡)
I know, I have to go…
是的,我必须走……
father::(父亲的话)
It’s not time to make a change
现在还不是做出改变的时候
Just sit down
请坐下
and take it slowly
慢慢去找出解决的办法
You’re still young–that’s your fault
你还是太年轻了,那是你的不足
There’s so much you have to go through
你还需要经历更多风雨的洗礼
Find a girl, settle down
找个女孩安定下来,不再居无定所
If you want, you can marry
如果你想,那么你可以享受婚姻的幸福
Look at me–I am old
看着我,我已垂垂老矣
But I’m happy
但我依然开心
son:(儿子的回答)
All the times, that I’ve cried
每次当我泪流的时候
Keeping all the things I knew inside
我都将这一切深藏心底(自己的理想和抱负)
And it’s hard
这是很不容易的
But it’s harder to ignore it
但更难的是要对它视而不见
If they were right–I’d agree
我承认,有时候别人的生活是对的
But it’s them–they know
但那是别人,是他们追求的生活
Not me. Now there’s a way, and I know
不是我,现在我知道该怎么做了
That I have to go away
我会离开你的生活,自己去闯荡
I know, I have to go.
是的,我该走了……
