“How Long Will I Love You” 
By Ellie Goulding







Lyrics

How long will I love you?
我對你的愛會持續多久呢?
As long as stars are above you,
只要群星還在你頭頂閃耀著,
And longer if I can
我的愛就不會停歇
How long will I need you?
我會嚮往著你的陪伴多久呢?
As long as the seasons need to
只要四季依然繼續繞行,
Follow their plan
我就需要你在我身邊
How long will I be with you?
我會伴在你身側多久呢?
As long as the sea is bound to
只要海和陸地仍相接成一線,日復一日輕輕拍打沙地,
Wash upon the sand
我就會牽著你走下去
How long will I want you?
我會日夜思慕著你多久呢?
As long as you want me to
只要你同樣惦念著我,
And longer by far
我對你的渴望就沒有斑駁的一天
How long will I hold you?
我們會牢牢握緊對方多久呢?
As long as your father told you,
只要你父親的諄諄囑咐還在耳際,
As long as you are
我們就不會鬆開彼此的手
How long will I give to you?
我會為你傾盡心力多久呢?
As long as I live through you,
只要你純然真摯的心毫無保留地在我面前展開,
However long you say
我的真心就只為你守候
How long will I love you?
我對你的愛會持續多久呢?
As long as stars are above you,
只要群星還在你頭頂閃耀著,
And longer if I may.
就足夠我的愛天荒地老
