I wanna live a day that never dies
我想度過永不終止的一天
I wanna change the world only for you
我想為妳改變整個世界
All the impossible I wanna do

I wanna hold you close under the rain
我想在雨中與妳相擁
I wanna kiss your smile and feel the pain

I know what's beautiful looking at you

In a world of lies you are the truth

And baby every time you touch me I become a hero
親愛的,妳每一次觸碰我,我頓時變得強壯
I'll make you safe no matter where you are
無論妳在何處,我都會保護妳
And bring you everything you ask for nothing is above me
更會為妳帶來妳想要的東西,沒有事情是我辦不到的
I'm shining like a candle in the dark when you tell me that you love me
我就像黑暗中的燭光,當我知道,妳深愛著我
I wanna make you see just what I was
我想讓妳認識過去的我
Show you the loneliness and what it does
向妳展示,過去的孤獨怎樣纏繞著我
You walked into my life to stop my tears
妳走進我的生命,抹去我的淚水
Everything's easy now I have you here

In a world without you, I would always hunger
在沒有妳的世界,我永不會滿足
All I need is your love to make me stronger
我只需要妳的愛,讓自己變得更加強壯
And baby every time you touch me I become a hero
親愛的,妳每一次觸碰我,我頓時變得強壯
I'll make you safe no matter where you are
