The whispers in the morning 
清晨的呢喃中
of lovers sleeping tight

are rolling by like thunder now
 那輕語如雷般回蕩
As I look in your eyes 
當我看著你的眼睛
I hold on to your body 
緊緊擁抱著你的身體
and feel each move you make
 感受你做的每一個動作
your voice is warm and tender 
你的聲音溫暖柔和
a love that i could not forsake 
這是我不能捨棄的愛
Cause I'm your lady

and you are my man

Lost is how i'm feeling lying in your arms
只要同你在一起,只要枕著你的臂膀,
When the world outside's too

much to take
That all ends when i'm with you

Lyrics

I won't just survive Oh, you will see me thrive
Can't write my story I'm beyond the archetype
我不只是存活,你看我振作
還不要寫我的故事,我要超越原來的我
I won't just conform No matter how you shake my core
Cause my roots, they run deep, oh
無論你怎樣動搖我 我都不會順從的
因為我的根埋深
Oh ye of so little faith Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins I know it, I know it
即使沒有完全的信心 但不要懷疑 不要懷疑
勝利在我的內心 我知道 我知道
And I will not negotiate I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform
我不會妥協 我戰鬥 我戰鬥
我將自我蛻變
When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
當火焰再次從我腳下點燃
禿鷹也開始在上空盤旋
They're whispering, "you're out of time."
But still, I rise This is no mistake, no accident
他們說你沒時間了
即使這樣 我會衝出來 不會錯誤 沒有意外
When you think the final nail is in; think again
Don't be surprised, I will still rise
你想終點障礙出現 再想想
不要驚訝 我會衝出線
I must stay conscious Through the menace and chaos
So I call on my angels They say...
我必須保持清醒 戰勝恐懼和混亂
所以 我呼喚我的天使 他們說著:
Oh ye of so little faith Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in my veins I know it, I know it
即使沒有信心 不要懷疑 不要懷疑
勝利就在我的內心 我知道 我知道
And I will not negotiate I'll fight it, I'll fight it
I will transform
我不會妥協 我戰鬥 我戰鬥
我將自我蛻變
When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
當火焰再次從我腳下點燃
禿鷹開始在上空盤旋
They're whispering, "you're out of time."
But still, I rise This is no mistake, no accident
他們說你沒時間了
即使這樣 我會衝出來 沒有錯誤 沒有意外
When you think the final nail is in; think again
Don't be surprised, I will still rise
你想終點障礙出現 再想想
不要驚訝 我會衝出線

Don't doubt it, don't doubt Oh oh, oh oh
You know it, you know it Still rise
不要懷疑 不要懷疑
你知道 你知道 我會衝出線
Just fight it, just fight it
Don't be surprised, I will still rise
戰勝它 戰勝它
不要驚訝 我會衝出線
