玫瑰

玫瑰

自古玫瑰便深受文人雅士與名媛淑女的喜愛,

詩詞對她的歌詠不知幾凡。

讓我們來欣賞1979年Bette Midler 唱出的 The Rose。

Some say love, it is a river

有人說,愛就像一道河流
That drowns the tender reed
它把柔弱的蘆葦淹沒其中
Some say love, it is a razor
有人說,愛就像一把利刀
That leaves your soul to bleed
它任由妳的心靈繼續淌血
Some say love, it is a hunger
有人說,愛就像一陣飢餓
An endless, aching need
一種既無盡又痛苦的需求
I say love, it is a flower
我說,愛就是一朵花
And you, its only seed
而妳,是它唯一的種子
It’s the heart, afraid of breaking
若一顆心,害怕被破碎
That never learns to dance
它永不能學會如何起舞
It’s the dream, afraid of waking
若一場夢,擔心被破滅
That never takes the chance
它永不能學會握緊機會
It’s the one who won’t be taken
若一個人,不願被奪去
Who cannot seem to give
他似乎不懂如何去付出
And the soul, afraid of dyin’
若那靈魂,懼怕著死亡
That never learns to live
它永不能學會如何活著
When the night has been too lonely
當長夜變得寂寞難耐
And the road has been too long
而這路也看似太漫長
And you think that love is only
妳想,愛不過是屬於
For the lucky and the strong
那些幸運和強壯的人
Just remember in the winter
只要記著,在寒冬中
Far beneath the bitter snow
在那層層冰雪之下
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love
埋藏著那顆種子,伴隨著太陽的和暖
In the spring becomes the rose
當春天降臨,它將幻化成玫瑰
