TLC - Waterfalls:歌詞+中文翻譯

TLC於1995年的歌曲,這首是該女子組合代表性的一首歌,
融合了許多音樂元素呈現的一首歌,
也反映了青少年一心為了讓自己有所成就,
不惜走上偏門導致家人傷心自己也丟了性命,
這在美國的社會上很常見,
尤其是出身低的家庭裡,小孩可不會因此就不志氣高,
因為社會上的貧困與種族階層問題,
讓這些小孩鋌而走險,最後傷心的還是家人。





[Verse 1: T-Boz]
A lonely mother gazing out of the window
一位孤單的媽媽看著窗外,
Staring at a son that she just can't touch
看著她那再也無法呵護的孩子
If at any time, he's in a jam, she'll be by his side
無論何時他只要身陷麻煩,媽媽總會陪在他身邊
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much
不過他一點都不了解已傷透媽媽的心了
But all the praying just ain't helping at all
不論怎麼祈禱也無濟於事
'Cause he can't seem to keep hisself out of trouble
因為他似乎擺脫不了他麻煩的處境
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
因此他獨自混在街道上,用他擅長的方式搞到錢
Another body laying cold in the gutter
又一具冰冷的屍體躺在水溝了
Listen to me
聽我說吧

[Chorus: TLC]
Don't go chasing waterfalls
別追求瀑布那刺激的感受
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to
拜託就留在你曾經習慣的河流或是湖泊吧
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
我明白你有不成功便成仁的覺悟
But I think you're moving too fast
但我認為你太心急了

[Verse 2: T-Boz]
Little precious has a natural obsession for temptation
人總是對新奇的東西有著與生俱來的好奇心
But he just can't see
但他就是不懂
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
她給了他全部的愛,不過他就是無法自制
But all he can say is, "Baby, it's good to me"
他只會說:『這樣才是對我好』
One day, he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror
某日,他從鏡子中看了看自己
But he doesn't recognize his own face
他已認不出他自己的臉長怎樣了
His health is fading, and he doesn't know why
他不懂為什麼氣色如此差
Three letters took him to his final resting place
那三個字帶領他走向生命的盡頭
Y'all don't hear me
早說了為什麼就不聽

[Chorus: TLC (Chilli)]
Don't go chasing waterfalls
別追求瀑布那刺激的感受
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to
拜託就留在你曾經習慣的河流或是湖泊吧
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
我明白你有不成功便成仁的覺悟
(Your way or no way)
(成敗自負)
But I think you're moving too fast
但我認為你太心急了

[Chorus: TLC (Chilli)]
Don't go chasing waterfalls
別追求瀑布那刺激的感受
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to
拜託就留在你曾經習慣的河流或是湖泊吧
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
我明白你有不成功便成仁的覺悟
But I think you're moving too fast
但我認為你太心急了

[Verse 3: Left Eye]
Come on!
罩過來
I seen a rainbow yesterday, but too many storms
我昨天看到彩虹了,但那是經歷許多場風暴後的事
Have come and gone, leaving a trace of not one God-given ray
暴雨來來去去,之後留下一絲上帝賜予的曙光
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray, I pray
我的人生就必然如此黑暗嗎,
All ten fade away, seldom praise Him for the sunny days
我祈禱一切離我而去,在風和日麗的日子對祂祈禱
And like His promise is true, only my faith can undo
如同祂的承諾是如此真實,只有我的信念能釋懷
The many chances I blew to bring my life to anew
太多次我錯過了自我重生的機會
Clear blue and unconditional skies
一望無際的藍色清澈天空
Have dried the tears from my eyes, no more lonely cries
我必須擦乾我的眼淚,不再孤獨流淚了
My only bleeding hope is for the folk who can't cope
我打從心裡真的希望那些無法抵抗
With such an endurin' pain that it keeps 'em in the pourin' rain
毒品誘惑的人,在那大雨中承受這麼久的痛苦
Who's to blame for tooting 'caine into your own vein?
打入你血管的那毒品針頭該由誰來負責?
What a shame, you shoot and aim for someone else's brain
可憐阿,你竟對他人的腦袋開槍
You claim the insane, and name this day in time
你自稱有精神病,且還對這天做紀念日而命名
For falling prey to crime
這些只會成為犯罪證據
I say the system's got you victim to your own mind
這社會讓你自以為自己沒錯
Dreams are hopeless aspirations in hopes of coming true
希望成真前,夢想只是幻滅的名詞
Believe in yourself, the rest is up to me and you
相信你自己,最後我和你一起努力吧

But I think you're movin' too fast (Ooh, you're movin' too fast)
但我認為你太心急了(哦~你太心急拉)
