E編:描寫熱戀美好的歌曲有很多,而描寫愛情中的不安和掙扎的歌曲,則提供了另一種角度,讓人去思考維繫一段感情可能會遇到的困難。來自美國的Cassandra老師分享了她對於Enrique Iglesias的Hero這首歌的解讀,細膩地分析她所看到的歌詞中關於愛情的種種心境。

Would you cry if you saw me cry?
你會哭嗎?如果你看到我哭;
And would you save my soul, tonight?
今晚你會拯救我的靈魂嗎?
Would you tremble if I touched your lips?
你會顫抖嗎?如果我觸碰你的嘴唇
Would you laugh? Oh please tell me this.
你會開懷而笑嗎?請你一定要告訴我。
Now would you die for the one you loved?
在需要的時候,你願意為你愛的人死嗎?

文/Cassandra


I believe the man does want to be her hero, but he's also posing questions to her that are very relevant to what a TRUE love relationship requires, yet doing so with an apparent vulnerability based on the alternatives he gives when asking the question that would make it something more than just "the here and now".

我認為這個男人真的想成為她的英雄,但是他問她的這些問題跟真正的愛情所需要的非常有關,然而伴著小心翼翼地詢問,讓一切看起來好像只是針對此「此時此地」的發問。

The words... "Am I in to deep? Have I lost my mind? I don't care... you're here tonight." Signify to me that though he's feeling vulnerable, he's also feeling that even if this is all he is to have...it's worth it to him because he truly loves her. You know...the old saying of..."It's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all".

「我是不是陷得太深?我失去理智了嗎?我不在乎...只要你今晚在這裡」這些話,讓我知道雖然他感到脆弱,他依然感覺這是他的所有....這對他很值得因為他真的深愛著她。有句古老的諺語說「寧願愛過然後失去,也好過從來沒愛過」。

When you truly love someone you do cry inside when you see them crying, you would do anything to save their soul, you would die for them, (though not in a physical sense, but to self-agendas and ambitions), you do tremble when they touch you in the way "touched your lips" comes across, you would swear that you'll always be with them, stand by them forever, yet at the same time...question if you are in too deep due to the overwhelming need you have to, for, and with that one person. Anytime something is that real, that much a part of you...there is an incredible sense of vulnerability at hand due to the risk you take of losing, not only that person, but also part of yourself which that one person carries with them always.

當你真的很愛一個人,當你看見對方哭你真的也會在內心哭泣,你真的會願意做任何事情只為了拯救她的靈魂,你會為了她而死(即使不是真的死亡,但也是抱著這種決心),你真的會在他用手指觸碰你的時候感到顫抖,你會發誓你永遠會陪著她、在他身邊。但是同時,如果你太過投入而超過你必須做的。你會感到無比的不安,因為懷著失去她的危機,不只是失去這個人,也是失去一部分和對方有關的自己。

To me, and I know words can be interpreted differently, when he says...
"I will stand by you forever,you can take my breath away"
He is telling her that he is in it for the long haul, that he is totally and completely devoted to her and their love. That when he dies, it will be with her right there beside him, taking the last breath from his body. I would want anyone to hear this song because it shows the true meaning of relationships.It is based on the idea of a romantic reality.  People say and believe that they would be willing to die for somebody they love, and this video portrays how far people will go to protect another person when they are in love.

對我來說,我知道這些話可能會有不同的解讀,當他說....

「我會永遠在你身邊,你可以帶走我的呼吸」他正在告訴她的是他早就深陷其中,而且完全為了她和他們的愛犧牲。當他死去,他會在她身邊,從他身上帶走最後一口氣。我希望大家聽這首歌是因為它展現了一段關係真實的意義。這是來自一個浪漫的現實的想法。人們相信他們會為了他們愛的人而死,而這首歌描寫了戀愛中的人們會願意為了保護另一個人而做多少的事情。
