Sam Smith - Pray.jpg

 

" I'm not a saint, I'm more of a sinner
I don't wanna lose, but I fear for the winners
When I try to explain, the words run away
That's why I am stood here today "

 

Sam Smith的第二首新歌出爐了~這首歌收錄於Sam即將發行的新專輯《The Thrill Of It All》之中,也是繼首波主打〈Too Good At Goodbyes〉之後的又一首神曲。

點右邊連結可以聽聽上個月我翻譯過的的〈Too Good At Goodbyes〉喔→【歌詞翻譯】Sam Smith - Too Good At Goodbyes 太捨得放下

 

這首歌的曲風跟Sam往常的歌曲不太相同,在這首3/4拍的歌裡加入比較多重拍的元素,背景的合聲也比較激情與大聲。(說實話我第一次聽的時候被第二段主歌的No嚇到了)

Sam對於此曲沒有什麼意義上的解釋,但我們可以確定的是Sam是個虔誠的天主教徒,這首歌也許是用一種比喻的方式,寫他自己為成名而苦的低潮時期,不過既然Sam沒有多做表示,我們就先不談談歌曲意涵了。

 

話說最近Sam Smith跟飾演《漢娜的遺言》中Justin的Brandon Flynn在街上放閃,這消息真的是太令人震驚了,上個月才說自己單身的Sam,竟然和Brandon交往了,真心祝他們幸福下去。

最後希望大家多聽幾次這首美麗的歌曲,期待Sam在全新專輯的曲風轉變~

 

 

歌詞翻譯

 

[Verse 1]
I'm young and I'm foolish, I've made bad decisions / 我太年輕太傻 做過許多錯誤的決定
I block out the news, turn my back on religion / 我不想理那些是是非非 也不想寄託於信仰
Don't have no degree, I'm somewhat naive / 我還有點天真 沒辦法全然領略
I've made it this far on my own / 但至少我獨自撐到了現在
But lately, that shit ain't been gettin' me higher / 然而最近我對於那些紛擾毫無辦法
I lift up my head and the world is on fire / 當我抬起頭 這世界彷彿一片狼藉
There's dread in my heart and fear in my bones / 我的身心充滿了畏懼
And I just don't know what to say / 我不知道該說些什麼

[Chorus 1]
Maybe I'll pray, pray / 也許我會向天祈禱
Maybe I'll pray / 也許我會用心祝禱
I have never believed, and you know / 如你所知 我從不信這些
But I'm gonna pray / 但我會試著祈禱看看

[Verse 2]
You won't find me in church (no) reading the bible (no) / 雖然我不會去教堂閱讀聖經
I am still here and I'm still your disciple / 但我仍在此處 仍為你虔誠的信徒
I'm down on my knees, I'm beggin' you, please / 我雙腳跪下 真心懇求
I'm broken, alone, and afraid / 如今的我孤寂慘淡 內心充滿恐懼
I'm not a saint, I'm more of a sinner / 我不是聖人 倒像是個罪人
I don't wanna lose, but I fear for the winners / 我不想輸 但又害怕真的成功
When I try to explain, the words run away / 每次我想解釋清楚 卻找不到適當的字句
That's why I am stood here today / 這也是為何我如今立身於此
 

[Chorus 2]
And I'm gonna pray, pray, maybe I'll pray / 也許我會向天祝禱
Pray for a glimmer of hope / 為那點希望之光祈禱
Maybe I'll pray, pray, maybe, maybe I'll pray / 也許我會用心祝禱
I've never believed, and you know, that I'm gonna- / 如你所知 我從不信這些 但我願意...

[Bridge]
Won't you call me? / 你會召喚我嗎?
Can we have a one-to-one, please? / 我能和你親自說說話嗎?
Let's talk about freedom / 我們來談談自由本身
Everyone prays in the end / 每個人到頭來都會祈禱
Everyone prays in the end / 每個人最終都會向天祝禱
Won't you call me? / 你會召喚我嗎?
Can we have a one-to-one, please? / 我能和你親自說說話嗎?
Let's talk about freedom / 我們來談談自由本身
Everyone prays in the end / 每個人到頭來都會祈禱
Everyone prays in the end / 每個人最終都會向天祝禱

[Chorus 3]
Oh, and I'm gonna pray, I'm gonna pray, I'm gonna pray / 我將會向天誠心祝禱
Pray for a glimmer of hope / 為那點希望之光祈禱
Maybe I'll pray, pray, maybe I'll pray / 也許我會用心祝禱
I've never believed, and you know, but I'm gonna pray / 如你所知 我從不信這些 但我仍願意祈禱
