【歌詞翻譯】Kesha - Praying


美國流行女歌手 Kesha 將於今年 8/11 推出時隔 5 年第三張專輯《Rainbow》,不想要試著成為誰,而是述說真實的人生經歷,揭露自身脆弱,並從中找到力量。將最赤裸的情感化為強而有力的音樂作品,首支主打「Praying」很明顯是有關近年與她官司纏訟的製作人 Dr. Luke 對她的精神虐待與勒索。Kesha 飽受焦慮和憂鬱症所苦,還有嚴重的飲食失調,儘管種種傷害,她仍告訴自己要試著尋找平靜,仇恨只會帶來更多仇恨,學習如何放手,相信命運自有安排,如今的她已成為一個堅強與獨立的女性。

她希望這首歌曲可以觸及那些一樣陷入折磨的人,無論現在有多麼糟,你都能撐過去。不要放棄自己,有愛和真理在身邊,你將不會被打敗。最終,陽光將穿過烏雲形成美麗的彩虹,一個全新的開始!

[Monologue: ]
Am I dead?
我死了嗎?
Or is this one of those dreams?
還是這只是其中一場夢?
Those horrible dreams that seem like they last forever?
那些恐怖的夢似乎永不止歇?
If I am alive, why?
如果我還活著,為什麼?
If there is a God or whatever, something, somewhere, 
如果有上帝或者任何事物、某個地方,
why have I been abandoned by everyone and everything I've ever known?
為何我被所有人以及我所知道的一切給拋棄?
I've ever loved? Stranded.
還有我所曾經愛過的?擱淺於此。
What is the lesson? What is the point?
我學到了什麼?這有何意義?
God, give me a sign, or I have to give up.
上帝啊,給我一個徵兆,不然我要放棄了。
I can't do this anymore.
我沒有辦法再這樣下去。
Please just let me die. Being alive hurts too much.
拜託就讓我死吧!活著實在太痛苦了。

[Verse 1: ]
Well, you almost had me fooled
是啊,你幾乎成功騙倒了我
Told me that I was nothing without you
告訴我沒有你我什麼都不是
Oh, but after everything you've done
噢,但經過你的所有作為後
I can thank you for how strong I have become
我可以感謝你讓我變得如此強壯

[Pre-Chorus: ]
'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
因為你帶來烈焰,你讓我走過地獄
I had to learn how to fight for myself
我必須學習如何為自己而戰
And we both know all the truth I could tell
而我們都知道我可以說出所有真相
I'll just say this is I wish you farewell
我只會說,這是我希望跟你的告別

[Chorus: ]
I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
我希望你正在某處祈禱著
I hope your soul is changing, changing
我希望你的靈魂有所改變
I hope you find your peace
我希望你能尋得你的安寧
Falling on your knees, praying
跪在地上誠心誠意祈禱著

[Verse 2: ]
I'm proud of who I am
我為自己是誰而感到驕傲
No more monsters, I can breathe again
不再惡魔纏身,我可以再次呼吸
And you said that I was done
然而你卻說我完蛋了
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
那麼你錯了,如今最好的還沒到來
'Cause I can make it on my own
因為我可以靠自己完成
And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known
我不需要你,我發現一股前所未知的力量
I've been thrown out, I've been burned
我被無情拋棄,我被折磨如火燒
Oh, when I'm finished, they won't even know your name
噢,當我完成,他們根本不會知道你的名字

You brought the flames and you put me through hell

And we both know all the truth I could tell
而我們都知道我可以說出所有真相
I'll just say this is I wish you farewell

[Chorus]

[Bridge: ]
Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night
噢,有時候,我在晚上為你祈禱
Someday, maybe you'll see the light
有一天,也許你會看見希望曙光
Oh, some say, in life, you're gonna get what you give
噢,有人說,人生在世,付出多少,得到多少
But some things, only God can forgive
但有些事情,只有上帝才能原諒

[Chorus]
