读者佳作:Because of you
[ 2006-05-24 09:00 ]

 英语论坛 Easy English“流行金曲”大家评(一

 我听之我见Kelly Clarkson一夜成名的故事,去年也发生在了中国。跟她的风格和实力最为相似的张靓颖,也已经走出辛酸的往事,用自己的声音讲述自己的感情和野心。Kelly那具有穿透力的声音,自然而然的让人想到另一个酷爱唱歌的女孩华丽的海豚音。她们都拥有上天恩赐好嗓子、好运气和清醒的头脑。用自己的方式走自己的路,这样的成功令人艳羡……


  Lyrics

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

  中文歌词

我不会重蹈你的覆辙
也不会让自己的心品尝苦涩
更不会像你一样崩溃
我知道痛苦的滋味
却绝不会轻易去体会

因为你
人生的轨道我从不敢偏离
因为你
我学会用封闭内心来保护自己
因为你
我不仅难以相信自己
连周围的人我都怀疑
因为你
我如此畏惧

我迷失了
就在你发现前那一刻
我不能哭泣
因为在你眼中这就是脆弱
每一天,我伪装的笑容都写满逼迫
我的心不可能再破碎了
因为她已经毁在了最初的那刻
