【中英歌词】

一部影片《Begin Again》(再次出发)讲述的是来自于英国的傲娇才女(凯拉·奈特莉饰)和美国的落魄大叔(马克·鲁法诺饰)在纽约遇见,共同踏上一段浪漫而激情的旅程,他们组建的“另类乐队”更是成为彼此人生新的开始。这里是给您带来音乐故事的可可《听歌学英语》,我是Canace。今天要放送的歌曲来自于网友白衣逍遥的推荐。Adam演唱了《Begin Again》这不电影主题曲《Lost stars》(迷失的星星),极具穿透力的嗓音饱含深情唱出了都市人对于前景不明的爱情虽然如同浩瀚星空中迷失的星星,但仍然努力寻找着存在的意义,试图将黑暗照亮。耳边正流动着的旋律来自于电影女主角扮演者凯拉·奈特莉。当然两种版本各有不同的味道。Keira的嗓音是细腻清澈的,随着民谣风格的伴奏呈现出了一股独特的韵味。

【歌词讲解】 音乐欣赏到这里,早前由Adam完美演绎的版本已将我们狠狠给吸住,而凯拉甜美清新的嗓音就像一位邻家女孩,伴随着简单的吉他调调,为你唱起最普通的爱情故事。不苛求技巧,舒服就好。那么接下来的时间呢请随Canace一起来了解一下歌词大意。

歌词:Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand.有时最精心制定的计划莫过于一夜的陪伴。Laid plan精心布置的计划 再来句几个例子:Even our most carefully laid plans may backfire. 甚至我们的最周密安排的计划也可能产生适得其反的结果。Backfire: (内燃机等)逆火;适得其反;产生事与愿违的结果One night stand在歌词中翻译得比较含蓄委婉,那这个短语的意思呢实际上是一夜情。其中的stand并不是“站立”的意思,而是表示一个很小的“place”,地方。本来这个词是指a single night theatre performance,即只在某夜某地上演一次就离开的巡回表演,后来被代指a sexual relationship that lasts for a single night,即只持续一夜的那种亲密的关系,是口语中不正式的用法。比如:I was hoping for a lasting affair, not just a one night stand. 我希望的是长久恩爱, 而不是一夜露水之欢.

歌词:And the lambs are on the run, searching for the meaning.无助的羔羊们正在亡命天涯,探寻着活下去的意义。On the run一般有两个意思,要不就是逃跑,要不就是奔跑,引申为“奔波、忙碌”的意思,分别来举例:逃跑:He's on the run from the police. 他正在逃避警方的追缉。奔波、忙碌:I've been on the run all day and I'm exhausted. 我整天忙个不停,疲於奔命。Search for表示寻找,search作为动词和名词都是可以的。名词:They made a long search for the lost child. 他们花很长时间寻找失踪的孩子。动词:We searched for five hours and all for nothing. 我们找了5个小时,但毫无结果。这句歌词是比喻,把无助的人们比喻成了羔羊,自助者天助,不管你在什么样的境遇中,相信时间一定能让我们走过那个坎,只要你够坚强,还有亲人朋友的陪伴。

歌词:Turn the page maybe we'll find a brand new ending.这句歌词就的的确确是满满的正能量了,因为这句歌词是说:或许另起一页我们会发现一个全新的结局。Brand new: 崭新的、全新的。The rising sun suggests a brand new day has come.东升的太阳表明崭新的一天已经来临。No one can go back and make a brand new start. 没有人可以回到过去,拥有一个崭新的开始。Turn over a new leaf 的意思是重新开始(改过自新,过新生活) 。英文释义:means to get a new start ,to change everything about yourself .I'm turning a new leaf ,No more drinking ,No more smoking, It's a healthy life from now on. 我决定改过自新,戒掉烟酒,过健康的生活。
