“Fight Song ” By Rachel Platten


Lyrics

Like a small boat
On the ocean
就像在無垠大海上的小紙船
Sending big waves
Into motion
隨著大風大浪浮浮沉沉
Like how a single word
一句簡單的話
Can make a heart open
卻能解開一個人的心結
I might only have one match
也許我只僅存一支火柴
but I can make an explosion
但那也足以發生爆炸
And all those things I didn't say
所有我未曾說過的事
Wrecking balls inside my brain
像是腦中重沉沉的鐵球
I will scream them loud tonight
今晚我要放聲尖叫
Can you hear my voice this time
這次你聽見了沒?
This is my fight song
這是我的戰鬥之歌
Take back my life song
我的自由之歌
Prove I'm alright song
我絕對沒問題的
My power's turned on
我的力量已經開啟
Starting right now I'll be strong
從現在起我要變得堅強
I'll play my fight song
我會唱著我的戰鬥之歌
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
我不在乎有沒有人相信
'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me
因為人生的路上還有許多仗要打呢
Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep
我失去了朋友,每天與睡眠時間賽跑
Everybody's worried about me
每個人都好擔心我
In too deep
執迷不悟
Say I'm in too deep
都說我陷得太深
And it's been two years
兩年過去
I miss my home
我很想家
But there's a fire burning in my bones
但現在有一把火正在我骨子裡燃燒著
And I still believe
而我仍相信著
And all those things I didn't say
所有我未曾說過的事
Wrecking balls inside my brain
像是腦中重沉沉的鐵球
I will scream them loud tonight
今晚我要放聲尖叫
Can you hear my voice this time
這次你聽見了沒?
This is my fight song
這是我的戰鬥之歌
Take back my life song

Prove I'm alright song
什麼也無法阻撓我
