“Someone Like You ” By Adele



Lyrics

I heard that you're settled down
聽說你已定下來
That you found a girl and you're married now
找到了一個女孩,現在結婚了
I heard that your dreams came true
聽說你的夢想成真了
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you
看來她給了你我沒給的
Old friend, why are you so shy?
老友啊!你幹嘛那麼害羞呢?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light
支支吾吾或閃避眼神,這不像你啊
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
我討厭這種突如其來的場面
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
但我無法離開,無法抗拒
I had hoped you'd see my face
我多希望你能看著我的臉
And that you'd be reminded, that for me it isn't over
然後注意到,對我來說,一切還沒結束啊
Never mind, I'll find 
someone like you
放心吧!我會找到一個像你一樣的人
I wish nothing but the best for you too
我也只是希望你一切順利
Don't forget me, I beg
我求你別忘了我
I remember you said
記得你說過
"Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead"
"
有時因愛而活,有時卻也因它而受傷"
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah
有時因愛而活,有時卻也因它而受傷,是啊
You know how the time flies
你知道時間過得多快
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
我們那些難忘時刻才在昨天
We were born and raised in a summer haze
我們就在夏霧裡長大
Bound by the surprise of our glory days
隨著驚喜的往日美好時光而在一起
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
我討厭這種突如其來的場面
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
但我無法離開,無法抗拒
I had hoped you'd see my face
我多希望你能看著我的臉
And that you'd be reminded, that for me it isn't over

"

Nothing compares, no worries or cares
凡事比不上,無憂無慮
Regrets and mistakes, they're memories made
但留在記憶中的盡是懊悔與所犯的錯
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?
這箇中滋味誰知
Never mind, I'll find 
someone like you
放心吧!我會找到一個像你一樣的人
I wish nothing but the best for you too
我也只是希望你一切順利

“Close to you” By The Carpenters


Lyrics

Why do birds suddenly appear
鳥兒們為何突然出現
Everytime you are near
每一次你靠近時
Just like me
就像我一樣
They long to be close to you
牠們早就想接近你
Why do stars fall down from the sky
星星為何從天上墜落
 Everytime you walk by
每一次當你走來
Just like me
就像我一樣
They long to be close to you
它們早就想接近你
On the day that you were born
在你誕生的那一天
The angels got together
天使們聚在一起
And decided to create a dream come true
決定創造出一個成真的美夢
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair of gold
於是,祂們在你的金髮灑上月塵
 and starlight in your eyes of blue
在你的藍眼珠裡灑上星光
That is why all the girls in town
這就是為何城裡所有的女孩
 Follow you all around
到處都跟隨著你
 Just like me
就像我一樣
They long to be close to you
她們早就想接近
