《Dance With My Father》双语歌词

  Dance with My Father

  作词 : Marx, Vandross

  Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence

  回到我孩提时期,那时生活还未抹去我的童真

  My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then

  我的父亲喜欢将我高高地托起来与母亲起舞

  Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep

  一直转到我有些困意才将我放下

  Then up the stairs he would carry me

  然后抱着我回到楼上卧室

  And I knew for sure I was loved

  那一刻我确信他们爱我

  If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him

  如果再给我一次机会,与他漫步,与他共舞

  I’d play a song that would never, ever end

  我要放上一首永远永远不会结束的旋律

  How I’d love, love, love

  因为我是如此地喜欢

  To dance with my father again

  再和他共舞一曲

  When I and my mother would disagree

  当我和母亲有所不合时

  To get my way, I would run from her to him

  总会习惯姓地跑向他去证明我是对的

  He’d make me laugh just to comfort me

  父亲总会用逗乐来安抚我

  Then finally make me do just what my mama said

  然后让我按照母亲的话去做

  Later that night when I was asleep

  那天晚上我熟睡时

  He left a dollar under my sheet

  他轻轻地在我床单下放了一美元

  Never dreamed that he would be gone from me

  从没想过那竟是永别

  If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him

  如果能从记忆里偷回他,哪怕只是一眼、一步、一段舞

  I’d play a song that would never, ever end

  我都要放上一首永远不会停下的旋律

  ‘Cause I’d love, love, love

  只愿与他

  To dance with my father again

  共舞一曲

  Sometimes I’d listen outside her door

  有时经过母亲门外

  And I’d hear how my mother cried for him

  听见她为父亲哭泣

  I pray for her even more than me

  只祈求将我的祝福都留给她

  I pray for her even more than me

  将我的恩赐都赠予她

  I know I’m praying for much too much

  我已经祷告了一次又一次

  But could you send back the only man she loved

  您能将她爱的那个人送回来吗

  I know you don’t do it usually

  我知道您不常做这种事

  But dear Lord she’s dying

  但亲爱的主啊!她是多么地渴望

  To dance with my father again

  与我的父亲再跳一支舞

  Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream

  每个夜晚入睡时,这些都会在我梦中再次浮现
