“Listen to Your Heart ” By Roxette

 

Lyrics

I know there's something in the wake of your smile
在你甦醒的笑容裡,我知道有什麼
I get a notion from the look in your eyes
從你的眼神中,我得到了一些啟示
You've built a love but that love falls apart
你把愛建築起來,愛卻摔得粉碎
Your little piece of heaven turns to dark
你那一小片天堂陷入了黑暗
Listen to your heart when he's calling for you
傾聽你的心,當他呼喚著你
Listen to your heart
傾聽你的心
There's nothing else you can do
當你不知所措
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why
我不曉得你將何去何從,也不知道緣由
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye
但是,傾聽你的心,在你和他道別以前
Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile
有時候你會懷疑這一切是否值得
The precious moments are all lost in the tide
珍貴的時刻全都湮沒在浪潮中
They're swept away
它們都被沖走了
And nothing is what is seems the feeling of belonging to your dreams
那屬於你夢中的情感,一切都面目全非
And there are voices that want to be heard
有些聲音希望被聽見
So much to mention but you can't find the words
有些話想說卻詞窮字絀
The scent of magic, the beauty that's been
神奇的氣味,曾有的美麗
When love was wilder than the wind
當愛比風更寬闊

“Starts” By Russell Crowe




Lyrics

There, out of the darkness
在那黑暗之中
A fugitive running
有個罪犯正在逃亡
Fallen from god
忤逆上帝
Fallen from grace
忤逆聖恩
God be my witness
上帝是我的證人
I never shall yield
我從不放棄追捕                         

Till we come face to face
直到我們再次見面
Till we come face to face
直到我們再次見面
He knows his way in the dark
他知道在黑暗中如何前行
Mine is the way of the Lord
我則會遵循主的指引前進
And those who follow the path of the righteous
而那些邁向正直之路的人們啊!
Shall have their reward
應該得到善報
And if they fall as Lucifer fell
若人們如路西法一樣墮落了
The flame the sword!
就等著受烈火與聖劍制裁吧!
Stars   In your multitudes
夜空中的繁星
Scarce to be counted
數也數不盡
Filling the darkness
填滿了整片黑暗
With order and light
以秩序與光明
You are the sentinels
你們是黑夜中的哨兵
Silent and sure
寂靜又可靠地
Keeping watch in the night
持續守護著黑夜
Keeping watch in the night
持續守護著黑夜
You know your place in the sky
你們明白自己存在的意義
You hold your course and your aim
堅定自己的方向和目標
And each in your season
並在每個季節中
Returns and returns
反反覆覆地運行
And is always the same
永遠遵循規律
And if you fall as Lucifer fell
若你們如路西法一樣墮落了
You fall in flame!
墜入烈火之中吧!
And so it must be for so it is written
所以必須按照上帝制訂的規則
On the doorway to paradise
在天堂之門前面
That those who falter and those who fall
那些畏懼和沉淪的人們啊!
Must pay the price!
必須付出代價!
Lord let me find him
主啊!讓我找到他
That I may see him
這樣我就會親眼看見
Safe behind bars
罪人安分守己地待在牢籠內
I will never rest
我永不安心
Till then
直到那一天的到來
This I swear
我向您發誓
This I swear by the stars!
在繁星見證下我隆重向您發誓!
