《Today》
Artist:John Steward

  《Today》,立足于现实,讲述对待生活,享受今天的人生态度。今天,花朵仍缠藤蔓,草莓新鲜,美酒香甜。我们也要让明天更加美丽,更有意义。

Today


*Today, While the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries,
I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.*

I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover.
You'll know who I am by the song that I sing.
I'll feast at your table;
I'll sleep in your clover,
Who cares what tomorrow shall bring?

I can't be contented with yesterday's glory.
I can't live on promises winter to spring.
Today is my moment and now is my story.
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing.

歌词大意

今 天
*今天,当那些花仍攀附着藤蔓,
我要品尝你的草莓,
我要品尝你的美酒。
就在我忘却所有欢乐之前,百万个明天都会逝去,
那是我的,今天。*

我是花花公子,会到处游荡。
听到我歌声,就能听出我是谁。
我要与你共餐;
我会睡得香甜。
谁在乎明天会怎样?

我不能满足于昨日的辉煌,
从冬天到春天,也不能把诺言来守望。
今日是我的时刻,
现在是我的故事。
我要大笑,我要哭泣,我还要唱。
