“Officially Missing You” BY Tamia






All I hear is raindrops falling on the rooftop
Oh baby, tell me why'd you have to go
'Cause this pain I feel it won't go away
And today I'm officially missin' you
我只聽到落在屋頂的雨聲
喔 寶貝 告訴我為什麼你要離開
因為這樣的痛苦 我始終揮之不去
而今天 我真的很想你

I thought that from this heartache, I could escape
But I've fronted it long enough to know
There ain't no way
And today I'm officially missing you
我以為在這次心痛後 我能夠逃脫
但在面對那麼久的傷痛後 我才明白
我始終無法忘懷
而今天 我真的很想你

Ooh...can't nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do, hey, baby
Said it stays on my mind
And I'm officially
喔 為什麼沒有人能像你一樣
像每一件你為我做過的小事情 嘿 寶貝
像一直停留在我的腦海裡
我真的

All I do is lay around, two years full of tears
From looking at your face on the wall (face on the wall)
Just a week ago you were my baby
Now I don't even know you at all,
I don't know you at all
我只是隨意躺著 帶著兩年滿滿的眼淚
看著掛在牆上相片裡你的臉
一個星期前 你還是我的寶貝
現在我卻完全不瞭解你
我已經完全不瞭解你

Well, I wish that you would call me right now
So that I could get through to you somehow
But I guess it's safe to say, baby
Safe to say that I'm officially missin' you
好吧 我真希望你現在能打電話給我
這樣我就能通過某種方式到你身邊
但我想我可以很肯定地這麼說 寶貝
肯定地說 我真的很想你

Ooh...can't nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do, hey, baby
Said it stays on my mind
And I'm officially
喔 為什麼沒有人能像你一樣
像每一件你為我做過的小事情 嘿 寶貝
像一直停留在我的腦海裡
我真的

Well, I thought I could just get over you, baby
But I see that's something I just can't do
From the way you would hold me
To the sweet things you told me
I just can't find a way to let go of you
好吧 我想我可以忘記你 寶貝
但我知道 有些事我永遠做不到
從你給我的擁抱
到你對我說的甜言蜜語
我始終找不到讓自己放手的方法

Ooh...can't nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do, hey, baby
Said it stays on my mind
And I'm officially
喔 為什麼沒有人能像你一樣
像每一件你為我做過的小事情 嘿 寶貝
像一直停留在我的腦海裡
我真的

It's official
Hoo, you know that I'm missin' you, yeah, yes
All I hear is raindrops, oh, yeah
And I'm officially missin' you
真的
你知道我正在想念著你 是的
我聽到了雨聲 喔 是的
而我真的很想你
