Father and Son by Cat Stevens

By dewdewcheng

這首絕對是勇度和星爵之歌。(星際異攻隊Gardians of the Galaxy)
還記得當時看完電影後,回家馬上Google這首歌。
歌詞其實是父親和兒子之間的對話,
父親說話的部分他用較低沉的嗓音詮釋,兒子的則是用較高的聲音來表示。
父親不明白兒子為什麼選擇了離開要展開新生活。
兒子無法解釋,他只知道是時候該去尋找自己的夢想了。

Father
It’s not time to make a change,
還沒有到
需要改變的時刻
Just relax, take it easy
放輕鬆,慢慢來
You’re still young, that’s your fault,
你還年輕,並不是你的錯
There’s so much you have to know
人生中還有很多事情你必須學習
Find a girl, settle down,
找一個心儀女孩,安頓下來
If you want you can marry
如果你確定她是你的歸宿,那就和她結婚

Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy
看看我,這把年紀了,但是我很快樂

I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy,
我曾經和現在的你一樣,我知道這並不容易
To be calm when you’ve found something going on
當你發現有事情即將發生,仍必須保持冷靜
But take your time, think a lot,
但是慢慢來,想清楚
Why, think of everything you’ve got
想想你所擁有的一切
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not
明天的你還會在這裡,而夢想卻可能已經離你遠去

Son

How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again
該怎麼解釋好呢,當我想要解釋時他就再次轉身離去
It’s always been the same, same old story
每次都是這樣,就像老套的故事情節
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen
從我可以說話開始,我就一直被要求去傾聽。
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away
現在有一個辦法,而我必須走了
I know I have to go
我知道我該走了

Father

It’s not time to make a change,
還沒有到需要改變的時刻
Just sit down, take it slowly
坐一下,慢慢來
You’re still 
young, that’s your fault,
你還年輕,並不是你的錯

There’s so much you have to go through
人生中還有很多事情你必須經歷
Find a girl, settle down,
找一個心儀的女孩,安定下來
If you want you can marry
如果你確定她是你的歸宿,那就和她結婚
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy
看看我,這把年紀了,但是我很快樂


Son

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
每次哭泣的時候,我把這些事情深埋在心裡
It’s hard, but it’s harder to ignore it.
這並不容易,但是假裝他們不存在卻更難。
If they were right, I’d agree, but it’s them They know not me.
如果他們是對的,我會認同,但是那是他們的,並不是我
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away.
現在有一個辦法,而我必須走了
I know I have to go.
我必須走了

Stay Stay Stay, Why must you go and make this decision alone?
留下來啊,留下來。你為什麼必須離開而獨自做這樣的決定呢?
