“How Far I'll Go” By Alessia Cara 


         


Lyrics
I've been staring at the edge of the water
我眺望海邊
Long as I can remember never really knowing why
記憶以來,不知為何原因
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
我想我是無法做個乖女兒
But I come back to the water no matter how hard I try
無論如何我都會想辦法走出海洋
Every turn I take every trail I track
每一次 我不停嘗試 各種路徑
Every path I make every road leads back
但每一條路徑都引導我回來原處
To the place I know where I can not go though I long to be
我渴望遠行 卻無法前進

See the line where the sky meets the sea it calls me
想去看海天相連的地平線  因它在呼喚我
And no one knows how far it goes
沒有人知道 我可以走多遠
If the wind on my sail on the sea stays behind me
如果揚帆的海風支持幫著我
One day I'll know if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go
在那一天,我要走多遠都可以
Go oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh x3
出發吧
I know everybody on this island seems so happy on this island
我知道島上的每一個人 幸福自足
Everything is by design
每件事都是有規劃
I know everybody on this island has a role on this island
我知道島上的每一個人 有各自的角色
So maybe I can roll with mine
也許我該自我前進
I can lead with pride I can make us strong
帶著自身的驕傲 讓大家跟著我強壯
I'll be satisfied if I play along
如果我自導自演,我會知足
But the voice inside sings a different song
我內心深處 有不同的聲音
What is wrong with me
難道我做錯什麼
See the light as it shines on the sea it's blinding
陽光照著大海 遮住我眼
But no one knows how deep it goes
但沒有人知道 海有多深
And it seems like it's calling out to me so come find me
它似乎在呼喚著我 尋找我的蹤跡
And let me know what's beyond that line will I cross that line
讓我瞭解地平線之外 我能否成功的跨越 
See the line where the sky meets the sea it calls me
想去看海天相連的地平線  因它在呼喚我
And no one knows how far it goes
沒有人知道 我可以走多遠
If the wind on my sail on the sea stays behind me
如果揚帆的海風支持幫著我
One day I'll know if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go
在那一天,我要走多遠都可以


“Roar ” By Katy Perry

Lyrics

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
我曾屏住呼吸保持緘默
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
生怕惹事生非,把許多事情都搞砸
So I sit quietly, agreed politely I guess that I forgot I had a choice
所以我只好安分的坐著,虛心接受你的意見,此外我想,我似乎忘了我還有另一個選擇
I let you push me past the breaking point
卻讓你堆翻了我所有的理論
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything
我沒有改變,我愛上了這一切
You held me down, but I got up
你的反對聲浪,卻讓我越挫越勇
Already brushing off the dust
揮別昨日的陰霾
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
聽聽我的聲音,聽聽那個聲音
Like thunder, gonna shake your ground
就像隆隆雷聲震撼著大地
You held me down, but I got up
你的反對,卻讓我越挫越勇
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
我雖已做好準備,卻又受夠了你
I see it all, I see it now
現在的我,看清一切

Chorus:
I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, dancing through the fire
我擁有如老虎般銳利著雙眼,如同鬥士,踩著如烈火般的優雅舞步
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
我是天生的王者,而你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲
Louder, louder than a lion
比獅子更加的響亮
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
我是天生的王者,而你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲
Oh oh oh oh oh oh x3
You're gonna hear me roar
你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲

Now I'm floatin like a butterfly
現在我像隻蝴蝶般翩然飛舞
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
卻像隻蜜蜂激烈的爭取所有
I went from zero, to my own hero
我從起始之點開始,做屬於自己的英雄
You held me down, but I got up
你的反對聲浪,卻讓我越挫越勇
Already brushing off the dust
揮別昨日的陰霾
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
聽聽我的聲音,聽聽那個聲音
Like thunder, gonna shake your ground
就像隆隆雷聲震撼著大地
You held me down, but I got up
你的反對,卻讓我越挫越勇
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
我雖已做好準備,卻又受夠了你
I see it all, I see it now
現在的我,看清一切

Chorus:
I got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, dancing through the fire
我擁有如老虎般銳利著雙眼,如同鬥士,踩著如烈火般的優雅舞步
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
我是天生的王者,而你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲
Louder, louder than a lion
比獅子更加的響亮
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
我是天生的王者,而你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You're gonna hear me roar
你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲
Roar-or, roar-or, roar-or
我的虎嘯聲
I got the eye of the tiger,  the fighter, dancing through the fire
我擁有如老虎般銳利著雙眼,如同鬥士,踩著如烈火般的優雅舞步
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
我是天生的王者,而你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲
Louder, louder than a lion
比獅子更加的響亮
Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
我是天生的王者,而你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲 
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You're gonna hear me roar
你只能聽見我那霸氣的虎嘯聲
