I've been staring at the edge of the water

我眺望海邊

Long as I can remember never really knowing why

有記憶以來,不知為何原因
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
我無法做個乖女兒
But I come back to the water no matter how hard I try
無論如何我都無法不回大海
Every turn I take every trail I track
每一次 我不停嘗試 各種方法
Every path I make every road leads back
每一次我回來原處
To the place I know where I can not where 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
想去看海天相連之處  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
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
我帶著驕傲 大家跟著我強壯
I'll be satisfied if I play along
如果我繼續下去,我會知足
But the voice inside sings a different song
我內心深處 唱出不同的聲音
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 在尋找我的蹤跡
And let me know what's beyond that line will I cross that line
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
想去看海天相連之處  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

“Bad Liar” BY Selena Gomez








I was walking down the street the other day

某天,當我在街道上遊蕩

Trying to distract myself
試著從悲傷裡分神
But then I see your face
突然間我瞥見你的臉孔
Oh wait, that's someone else
不,等等,原來是別人

Oh oh, trying play it coy
我試著假裝蠻不在乎
Trying make it disappear
用盡全力把你驅逐出腦海
But just like the battle of Troy
但就像功敗垂成的戰爭般
There's nothing subtle here
沒有努力的餘地

In my room there's a king size space
現在我的心裡盡是荒蕪的空缺
Bigger than it used to be
遠比任何時候都要空虛
If you want you can rent that place
如果你願意的話可以住下來
Call me an amenity
然後叫我你的愛人
Even if it's in my dreams
就算這全都是我的癡心妄想

Oooh
You're taking up a fraction of my mind
你的身影默默占據了我每一寸心房
Oooh
Every time I watch you serpentine
看著你一次又一次狡猾地掙脫情傷

Not to give in to you
不屈服於對你的思念
No, no, no, no, not to give in to you

With my feelings on fire
但壓抑的情感卻燃起烈火
Guess I'm a bad liar
也許我不過是愛情裡的二流騙子

I see how your attention builds
我看著你若有似無地對我釋出善意
It's like looking in a mirror
就像看著小心翼翼的自己般熟悉
Your touch like a happy pil
你的撫觸就像毒藥
But still all we do is fear
而我們的每一步都是險路

What could possibly happen next?
接下來故事會怎麼進行?
Can we focus on the love?
我們能全神投注在愛情上嗎?
Paint my kiss across your chest
我用吻覆蓋你的胸膛
If you're the art, I'll be the brush
假如你是一門藝術,我會是創造你的筆刷

Oooh
You're taking up a fraction of my mind
你的身影默默占據了我每一寸心房
Oooh
Every time I watch you serpentine

And oh baby let's make
親愛的
Reality, actuality, a reality
何不把對彼此的嚮往變成現實
Oh baby let's make
Reality, actuality, a reality

Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
