英文歌词

可可英语网之《听歌学英语》。大家好,我是琳达。今天要跟大家分享的歌曲是来自Owl City的一首《你好,西雅图》。Owl City这个乐队实际只有Adam Young一位成员。Adam被誉为电气摇滚创作鬼才。据说,他的大多数作品都是在地下室里由于失眠而创作出来的。他人皆睡我独醒,黑夜放任思绪狂舞,所以Adam的歌便多了梦境一般的童话特质。饶有趣味的歌词像抒情诗一般的迷人,又颇具美学的魔力。失眠的时候不妨听听这首Hello Seattle。让Adam清新温暖的歌声带你遨游西雅图这座不夜城吧。

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
早安,西雅图,我是一个登山者
In the hills and highlands
游历于山丘与高地之间
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
我在医院的停车场沉沉入睡
And awake in your mouth
在你的口中醒来

Hello Seattle, I am a manta ray
你好,西雅图,我是一只小小的蝠鲼
Deep beneath the blue waves
潜游在蔚蓝的深深海浪
I’ll crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound
我将爬行在普捷湾的砂粒海底
And construct a summer home
并构筑我的夏日家园

Hello Seattle, I am the crescent moon
晚安,西雅图,我是一轮新月
Shining down on your face
柔光映在你的脸上
I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill
我将伪装成一枚安眠药
And descend inside of you
并落入你的心扉

Hello Seattle, I am a cold sea horse
你好,西雅图,我是一只冰凉的海马
Feeling warm in your sand
在你的砂粒中感到温暖
I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
我歌唱着潮汐与海洋的碎浪
Rolling in the evening breeze
蜷缩在傍晚的和风中

Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
午安,西雅图,我是一只信天翁
On the docks and moored boats
翱翔于码头和泊船之上
I sail above your inlets and interstates
我在你的海口与公路上空轻盈飞翔
Through the rain and open wind
无论雨落还是大风

Hello Seattle, I am an old lighthouse
你好,西雅图,我是一座古老的灯塔
Throwing beams of bright light
射出明亮的光束
Red in the morning, blue in the evening sun
透过清晨的绯红,傍晚夕阳的青蓝
Taking heed for everyone
守护着每个路人

Take me above your light
带我飞翔于你的光芒之上
Carry me through the night
引领我穿梭于你美妙的夜晚
Hold me secure in flight
让我安稳地在飞行中前进
Sing me to sleep tonight
今夜歌唱着伴我入眠
