【双语歌词】

Switch on the sky and the stars glow for you

打开夜的天窗,星星为你闪耀

Go see the world 'cause it's all so brand new

看看这个世界,它已焕然一新

Don't close your eyes 'cause your future's ready to shine

不要闭上眼睛,因为你的未来就要闪耀

It's just a matter of time, before we learn how to fly

我们学会飞翔,只是迟早的事

Welcome to the rhythm of the night

欢迎来到夜的旋律中

There's something in the air you can't deny

有些事即将发生,你无法否认

 

It's been fun but now I've got to go

这很的确有趣,但现在我得走了

Life is way too short to take it slow

人生太过短暂,你无法放慢脚步

But before I go and hit the road

但在我离开之前

I gotta know, 'til then

在此之前我想知道

When can we do this again?

我们何时才能相聚?

 

When can I see you again?

我们何时才能重逢?

When can we do this again?

我们何时才能相聚?

I gotta know

When can I see you again?

我们何时才能重逢?

 

Joined at the hip, yeah your sidekick needs you

你的死党需要你

Life is a trip and the road map leads you

生命是一段旅程,你沿着地图前进

Look all around at the mountains you haven't climbed

看看周围你还没攀登过的山

It's just a matter of time, before we learn how to fly

我们学会飞翔,只是迟早的事

Welcome to the rhythm of the night

欢迎来到夜的旋律中

There's something in the air you can't deny

有些事即将发生,你无法否认

 

It's been fun but now I've got to go

这很的确有趣,但现在我得走了

Life is way too short to take it slow

【听歌笔记】

It's just a matter of time, before we learn how to fly

我们学会飞翔,只是迟早的事

▲be (only) a matter of time(只)是个时间问题,是迟早的事

It's only a matter of time before he's forced to resign.

他被迫辞职只是迟早的事。

【拓展】

补充一个way的相关表达,你知道“如愿以偿”用英语怎么说吗?

If she doesn't get/have her (own) way, she sulks like a four-year-old.

她就像个四岁的孩子,什么都得按她的心意做。

 

Life is way too short to take it slow

人生太过短暂,你无法放慢脚步

▲这里的way是副词,意思是“太,大幅”。

She spends way too much money on clothes.

她花太多的钱买衣服。

 

There's something in the air you can't deny

有些事即将发生,你无法否认

▲in the air不是“在空气中”,而是比喻“即将发生;可被感觉到;被人们意识到”。

Love/Change/Spring is in the air.

爱意萌动/变革在即/春意盎然。
