Dance With My Father - Luther Vandross



Dance With My Father - Luther Vandross


Back when I was a child,
當我還是個孩子的時候,
Before life removed all the innocence,
在生活移除所有純真之前,
My father would lift me high,
我父親會把我高高抱起,
dance with my mother and me,
跟我母親和我一起跳舞,
And then spin me around till I fell asleep,
然後抱著我四處打轉,直到我睡著,
Then up the stairs he would carry me,
接著他會抱著我走上樓去,
And I knew for sure I was loved
而我無比的肯定我擁有愛。

If I could get another chance,
如果我可以再得到一個機會,
Another step, another dance with him,
另一個節奏,與他再度共舞一次,
I'd play a song that would never, never end
我會播放一首永遠、永遠不會結束的歌曲,
How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again.
我多麼、多麼希望能夠再度與我父親共舞。

When I and my mother disagreed,
當我和母親意見衝突的時候,
To get my way I would run from her to him
為了達成我的願望,我會離開母親奔向他。
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me,
他會讓我歡笑,只為了安慰我,
Then finally make me do just what my mamma said.
最後還是讓我按照媽媽的話去作。
Later that night when I was asleep,
那天夜裡,當我睡著的時候,
He left a dollar under my sheet.
他留了一塊錢在我床單下。
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me.
我從未想到過他有一天會離開我。

If I could steal one final glance,
假如我能夠偷偷再看最後一眼,
One final step, one final dance with him,
偷得最後一個舞步,與他共舞最後一次
I'd play a song that'd never, never end.
我會播放一首永遠、永遠不會結束的歌曲,
Cos I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again.
因為我多麼、多麼希望能夠再度與我父親共舞。

Sometimes I'd listen outside the door
有時候我會在門外傾聽,
And I'd hear how my mamma cried for him
我會聽到母親如何的為他而哭泣,
I pray for her even more than me...
我為她祈禱,甚至多過為我自己
I pray for her even more than me...
我為她祈禱,甚至多過為我自己

I know I'm praying for much too much,
我知道我的祈求真的是太過份,
But could you send back the only man she loved?
但你可否送回這個她唯一愛過的男人?
I know you don't do it usually,
我知道你通常都不會這麼做,
But dear Lord, she's dying to dance with my father again.
但親愛的主,她是多麼的盼望與我父親再度共舞。

Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream...
每天晚上當我入睡時,這就是我唯一的夢……
