Lyrics

When tomorrow comes
當明日到來
I'll be on my own
我將會孤身一人
Feeling frightened of the things that I don't know
感受到那些未知的恐懼向我襲來
When tomorrow comes, tomorrow comes, tomorrow comes
所以我總是對明日感到不安

And though the road is long
而即使未來的道路如此漫長
I look up to the sky
我總會抬頭仰望天空
And in the dark I found, I lost hope that I won't fly
在黑暗中我發現自己失去了希望 已經無法再展翅飛翔
And I sing along, I sing along, and I sing along
所以我只能隨著心中的旋律開口高唱

I got all I need when I got you and I
當我們在一起時  我像是擁有了全世界
I look around me, and see a sweet life
我環顧四周 看見了夢寐以求的生活
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
我雖然身陷黑暗之中 但你總會照亮我的道路
You're getting me, getting me through the night
你會在我身邊 陪我度過那些難熬的夜晚
Kick start my heart when you shine it in my eyes
當你的光芒耀入我雙眼時 也為我的心揭開了序幕
Can't lie, it's a sweet life
我無法說謊 因為這般人生是如此美好
Stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
即便身陷黑暗之中 你還是會照亮我的道路
You're getting me, getting me through the night
你會在我身邊 陪我度過那些難熬的夜晚
Cause you're my flash light (flash light)

You're my flash light (flash light), you're my flash light
你是只屬於我的希望之光

Ooh

I see the shadows long beneath the mountain top
越高聳的山峰 倒影也會越漫長
I'm not afraid when the rain won't stop
但就算風雨交加我也不再害怕
'Cause you light the way, you light the way, you light the way
因為我知道你總會為我指引未來的路

I got all I need when I got you and I
