Daughtry - Witness.jpg

 

" If you ain't finding love but you're still not giving up
If you're down and out but you still want to live it up
And if the weight of the world is on you now
But you know you can turn it all around again
Can I get a witness? "

 

繼上週介紹過Daughtry道奇樂隊的〈Utopia烏托邦〉之後,又意外的找到一首我很喜歡的作品,好聽的程度讓我迫不及待跟大家分享。

還沒聽過〈Utopia〉&想知道Daughtry道奇樂隊的簡單介紹,可以點旁邊的連結→〈Utopia烏托邦〉歌詞翻譯&Daughtry介紹

 

這首歌出自於2015年的專輯《Baptized》,有人說這張專輯是他們史上最差,但我一點都不這麼覺得。

"Can I get a witness?"這句話直翻就是「我可以有證人嗎?」而在英文裡面這句話衍伸的意思就是「有人同意我說的嗎?」或「有人支持我嗎?」的意思。

由於沒有辦法找到關於這首歌的創作背景與意涵,我認為這首歌可能是在鼓勵對方振作,或者是對深愛的人的一種暗示,無論如何,從主唱Chris的聲音裡,你可以聽見他充沛而激昂的感情,高音如同飛箭穿入我們的心扉,如此動人而誠摯。

 

希望每個人聽完這首歌,可以感受到澎派的情緒,也許你會落淚,也許你會皺眉,但是請你別忘了這首歌。

 

 

歌詞翻譯

 

[Intro]
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? / 你是否厭倦無盡的疲憊
Hollowed out and feeling uninspired / 內心空虛而感到枯竭
The question I keep asking is what / 我不斷的問著
Will it take to ease your worried mind / 要付出多少代價 才能讓你的心平靜
Your worried mind / 你那顆焦慮的心

[Verse 1]
Now you're letting your confusion take control / 你放縱疑惑掌控你的思緒
And leading you down a dark and lonely road / 引導你走向黑暗寂寞的道路
Even that won't last forever / 但不會總是這樣子的
Just look around and see you're not alone / 看看你的身邊 你並不孤單
You're not alone / 你並不是一個人

[Chorus]
If you ain't finding love but you're still not giving up / 假如你找不著真愛 你絕不輕言放棄
If you're down and out but you still want to live it up / 假如你失落又沮喪 你會抬起頭振作
And if the weight of the world is on you now / 即便現在你背負著全世界的壓迫
But you know you can turn it all around again / 但你知道你可以再次扭轉頹勢

[Verse 2]
Does it feel like you're just wasting time / 你不覺得你是在浪費時間嗎
Here without a reason or a rhyme / 杵在這裡 一點都沒有意義

Standing right before your weary eyes / 就是去親自面對你那雙眼眸
Your weary eyes / 你那雙疲憊的眼睛
