《Counting Stars》是美国流行摇滚乐队共和时代演唱的一首歌曲,词曲由瑞恩·泰德个人谱写 。歌曲收录在其第三张录音室专辑《Native》,为该专辑的第三支单曲。歌曲在英国与加拿大的单曲排行榜上取得了冠军的成绩 。而在美国,歌曲在公告牌单曲排行榜上的最高排名为第二位,与其2007年发行单曲《Apologize》的位置持平 。

乐队主唱瑞恩·泰德在接受采访时解释了这首歌的意义,他表示,“以诚为本”是这首歌曲所要传达的信息。泰德从成为一个U2乐队二十年的粉丝中悟出了这一点,并认为U2可能会是到目前为止唯一一支歌曲的内容不仅仅是男孩女孩之间的或者“我是坏蛋”之类的乐队。他感到有责任去真实地写歌、唱一些上升到人类层面上的内容。他同时表示,他宁愿有一首歌曲在榜单上排位不高但富有意义、能够进入到文化生活深层,而不愿这首歌曲成为一首热度瞬增的冠军单曲。

Counting Stars

歌手:OneRepublic

Lately I been, I been losing sleep
最近我总是辗转反侧 难以入眠
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
对我们曾有过的愿景 浮想联翩
But baby I been, I been prayin' hard
但亲爱的 我早已在内心深处祈祷着
Said no more counting dollars
祈祷自己不再迷失于金钱的追逐中
We'll be counting stars
我们可以细数满天繁星
Yeah, we'll be counting stars
细数满天繁星 品味生活乐趣
I see this life
生活
Like a swinging vine
就像一株跃动的藤蔓
Swing my heart across the line
长驱直入 激活我的内心
In my faces flashing suns
在我脸上 划过迹象
Seek it out and ye shall find
遍寻之后 你能发现
Old, but I'm not that old
我虽上年纪 但不致老态龙钟
Young, but I'm not that bold
虽还年轻 却未必鲁莽失礼
And I don't think the world is sold
坚信这个世界美好如初
I'm just doing what we're told
我只是循规蹈矩地生活着
I, feel something so right
体味心安理得
But doing the wrong thing
惯于离经叛道中
I, feel something so wrong
痛感乏善可陈
But doing the right thing
亦于按部就班中
I could lie, could lie, could lie
我欺骗过 伪装过 失真过
everything that kills me makes me feel alive
但置我于死地者 必将赐我以后生

I feel the love
我感觉到爱火
And I feel it burn
在胸中熊起
Down this river every turn
于河流的每个迂回处翻腾
Hope is a four letter word
希望只是个四字单词
Make that money
身外之物
Watch it burn
皆可抛却

Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly
