【歌詞翻譯】Tyler Ward - What It's Like To Be Lonely


美國獨立男歌手 Tyler Ward 因為在 YouTube 上發表許多翻唱與原創作品而成名,3/12 是他的生日,祝 Tyler 生日快樂。之前才剛推薦過他上個月發行的最新原創抒情單曲「If It's Not Me」,繼續送上 2015 年全創作 EP《Yellow Boxes》中的「What It's Like To Be Lonely」,這首歌是他 3 年前旅行途中在飛機上所寫的作品,當時剛經歷分手,將心痛化為創作,抒發寂寞之情。你是否曾把別人當作自己感情的替代品,填補失戀的傷痛?但這只是一時的慰藉,你無法得到真正的快樂。先學會好好愛自己吧!

Lyrics & Translation 歌詞:(by 好青年 中譯)

Written by Tyler Ward

[Verse 1: ]
Headed back home
回家路上
Boarding the plane
正要登機
Like an old ghost thought I heard your name
像勾起傷心回憶以為聽見你的名字
And my heart stopped, skipped a beat for one second
心臟停止跳動,靜止一秒鐘
Turned around, but who was I kidding?
轉過身來面對,我在開誰的玩笑?
Just a sweet girl
只是一個甜美的女孩
Was she here to save me?
她是來拯救我的嗎?
Will I finally get to move on, maybe?
我終於可以繼續向前,也許吧
Quick drinks, so that I can move closer
一杯接著一杯,這樣我能靠近一些
Ask her name, hoping for closure
問問她的名字,希望可以解脫

[Chorus: ]
So this is what it's like to be lonely?
所以寂寞是這樣的感覺?
Spending every minute thinking 'bout you
每一分鐘都在想著你
But looking for somebody else to hold me
在別人懷裡尋找慰藉
Only hoping they will know me like you do
只願他們可以像你一樣了解我
Get out of my mind for a moment
離開我的腦海一會兒
You took my heart and marked it like a tattoo
你奪走我的心,像紋身一樣標了記號
They say that time will heal like a potion
他們說時間如藥水會治療一切
But time has only got me missing more of you, of you
但是時間卻只讓我更加想念你啊你啊
(Lonely, lonely)
(寂寞啊寂寞)
(Lonely, lonely)
(寂寞啊寂寞)

[Verse 2: ]
It's been a few months
幾個月過去了
And not much has changed
沒有什麼改變
Still check my phone to see if your name's on it
仍會查看手機是否顯示你的名字
Drive past the places we used to go
駕車開過我們以前常去的老地方
Our song keeps spinning on the radio
我們的情歌在電台裡不停地播送
And I know I sound a little cliché, but I
而我知道這有點老掉牙,但是我
I never thought the things could change
我從來沒有想過事情會如此改變
So please, don't forget me when the summer fades
所以拜託,在夏天結束之前不要忘記我
All the while, I'll be trying to replace your face
我自始至終會試著抹去你的臉

[Chorus: ]
So this is what it's like to be lonely?
所以寂寞是這樣的感覺?
Spending every minute thinking 'bout you
每一分鐘都在想著你
But looking for somebody else to hold me
在別人懷裡尋找慰藉
Only hoping they will know me like you do
只願他們可以像你一樣了解我
Get out of my mind for a moment
離開我的腦海一會兒
You took my heart and marked it like a tattoo
你奪走我的心,像紋身一樣標了記號
They say that time will heal like a potion
他們說時間如藥水會治療一切
But time has only got me missing more of you, of you
但是時間卻只讓我更加想念你啊你啊
(Lonely, lonely)
(寂寞啊寂寞)
(This is what it's like to be, this is what it's like to be)
(事情就是如此,就是如此)
(Lonely, lonely)
(寂寞啊寂寞)
(This is what it's like to be lonely)
(原來寂寞是這樣的感覺)

[Bridge: ]
All I want is for you to know
我只是想要你知道
That I'm sorry for all the things I didn't didn't do
對於沒有做過的事情,我感到很抱歉
All I want is for you to know
我只是想要你知道
That I'm sorry for all the things I didn't didn't do
對於沒有做過的事情,我感到很抱歉
If I call you up in the middle of the night
如果我在半夜時分打電話給你
If I send you a text asking, "How is your life?"
如果我傳簡訊給你,問說:「你生活過得好嗎?」
It's just me checking in insecure
這只是我感到不安的問候
Wondering if I exist anymore
想知道我是否還有一點存在感
If I say something and I started a fight
如果我說了什麼挑起紛爭
Between you and yours, yeah I'll act so surprised
介於你和你的另一半,是啊,我表現得很吃驚的樣子
Surprised, surprised
感到吃驚,出乎意料
I'll need a little time
我需要一點時間調適

[Chorus: ]
So this is what it's like to be lonely?
所以寂寞是這樣的感覺?
Spending every minute thinking 'bout you
每一分鐘都在想著你
But looking for somebody else to hold me
在別人懷裡尋找慰藉
Only hoping they will know me like you do
只願他們可以像你一樣了解我
Get out of my mind for a moment

You took my heart and marked it like a tattoo

They say that time will heal like a potion
他們說時間如藥水會治療一切
But time has only got me missing more of you, of you

(Lonely, lonely, lonely)
(寂寞寂寞啊寂寞)
(Lonely, lonely, this is what it's like to be lonely)
(寂寞啊寂寞,原來寂寞是這樣的感覺)
(Lonely, this is what it's like to be lonely)
(寂寞,原來寂寞是這樣的感覺)


歌曲背景故事 THE STORY OF THIS SONG:

I wrote and produced this track during a flight (I know, sounds crazy) from Nashville to Los Angeles three years ago. I had experienced a break up and was hurting SO bad that I had to write about it. This song came out on the plane. I didn’t record my vocals on the plane, but I did produce about 60% of the song on the flight. CRAZY RIGHT? 
Have you ever experienced heartbreak so badly that you just look for another person to fill the gap? Thinking that someone else will be the answer for the pain? That’s what I did. But somewhere along the way it finally clicked: another person will never complete me. She may fill that for a season, but it’s never going to fully sustain. For me, real joy comes from learning to love yourself regardless if another person does or not. We have to take time to show ourselves care, grace and forgiveness. We will never be able to give love away fully if we don’t respect and care for ourselves. I’m a firm believer that you are who you attract. Healthy humans attract healthy humans. I’m excited that I’m not in the same place I was three years ago, but I am thankful that I was able to experience this. To those of you who are going through it now, I’ve been there and I’m sorry it hurts. It’s not easy right now, but I promise it gets better! And there is a reason for it. You’ve got this. I’m with you.
