【翻译】Viva La Vida 我心不息 – ColdPlay

 

每次忧伤的时候就会发翻译呢。w

 

I used to rule the world
万千世界我曾主宰,

Seas would rise when I gave the word
山海排闼只为我而开;

Now in the morning I sleep alone
现在却在雾中醒来,

Sweep the streets I used to own
在我的故土失意徘徊。

 

I used to roll the dice
以生死押注打牌,

Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
品味恐惧在对手眼中绽开。

Listen as the crowd would sing:
得意侧耳万民青睐——

“Now the old king is dead
“先王老矣!”

Long live the king ”
“吾王万代!”

 

One minute I held the key
而后当我执掌权脉,

Next the walls were closed on me
却发现宫门深似海——

And I discovered that my castles stand
转身凝望社稷和城稗,

Upon pillars of salt’ pillars of sand
基地散如盐砂乱似尘埃。

 

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
听宣礼塔上钟声传来,

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
看铁骑高呼 声震江海,

Be my mirror my sword and shield
做我明镜利剑和盾牌,

My missionaries in a foreign field
新约旧约传扬在国境之外。

For some reason I can’t explain
只有一事我无法释怀:

Once you gone there was never’
当你离开就不再——

Never an honest word
不再有心为我敞开,

That was when I ruled the world
这就是我一统的时代。

 

It was the wicked and wild wind
凛冽寒风挟肃杀而来,

Blew down the doors to let me in
重门猎猎投我入重霾。

Shattered windows and the sound of drums
骄傲不再、礼崩乐坏,

People couldn’t believe what I’d become
暴民要审判我的将来。

 

Revolutionaries wait
起义大军翘首以待,

For my head on a silver plate
我的头被斩下,被挂起来;

Just a puppet on a lonely string
正如傀儡断线无神摇摆——

Oh who would ever wanna be king
呜呼!谁又渴望受人膜拜!

 

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
听宣礼塔上钟声传来,

Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
看铁骑高呼 声震江海,

Be my mirror my sword and shield
做我明镜利剑和盾牌,

My missionaries in a foreign field
新约旧约传扬在国境之外。

For some reason I can’t explain
只有一事我无法释怀:

I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
不再有天使对我礼拜。

Never an honest word
不再有心为我敞开,

That was when I ruled the world
这就是我一统的时代。

 

(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)
