“When We Were Young ” By Adele


Lyrics
Everybody loves the things you do
每個人都愛你所做的一切
From the way you talk
從你說話的方式
To the way you move…
到你走路的姿勢
Everybody here is watching you
每個人都往你望去
‘Cause you feel like home
因為你感覺像家般的溫暖
You’re like a dream come true
你就像是現實的美夢成真
But if by chance you’re here alone
但要是剛好你一人獨自在這
Can I have a moment?
我可以占用點時間嗎?
Before I go?
就在我離開前?
‘Cause I’ve been by myself all night long
因為我已經獨自一人待在這整夜了
Hoping you’re someone I used to know
希望你依然是我所熟悉的那個人阿
You look like a movie

You sound like a song,
你的聲音像手歌聲
My God, this reminds me
天啊,這讓我記起了
Of when we were young
當我們還年輕的時候
Let me photograph you in this light
讓我在這燈光的角度為你拍張照片吧
In case it is the last time
這次是最後一次了
That we might be exactly like we were
我們就像當初一樣
Before we realized
在我們承認現實前
We were sad of getting old
我們因為會年老而感到憂傷
It made us restless
這讓我們感到不安焦慮
It was just like a movie
這就像是電影一樣
It was just like a song
就像首歌啊
I was so scared to face my fears
我以前相當害怕面對自我一切的恐懼
Cause nobody told me that you’d be here
因為沒人告訴我你會出現
And I swore you moved overseas
而我早料到你會搬離異地了
That’s what you said, when you left me
如同你所說一切的,當你拋下我之後
You still look like a movie
你仍然像部電影
You still sound like a song
你依然像首歌曲
My God, this reminds me
天啊,這讓我記起了
Of when we were young
當我們還年輕的時候

This love is like rain and blue skies

This love is like sun on the rise
猶如 蓄勢待發的朝陽
This love got me rolling the dice

So what to do
