Wherever you are (无论你在何方)-- 会湿了你的眼睛

这首英国合唱歌曲,Wherever you are (无论你在何方),  击败了通俗流行音乐,成了今年英国圣诞节畅销单曲。

歌曲牵动人心,因为歌曲有灵魂,有人性,大街小巷许多人都湿润了眼睛。从 11 月开始,我每一天,在开车上班的路上,收音机都播出这首主打歌。每一天听,都听不腻。

驻军阿富汗的军士们,他们的太太和女朋友,在合唱指挥 Gareth Malone(卡瑞马龙)的带领下,走出了各自的庭院,她们彼此原不相识,却在音乐中,找到了力量、温情。

指挥 Gareth Malone 有张娃娃脸,35 岁,看起来 12 岁,长得像哈利波特。  他的粉丝横扫各阶级,有老先生老太太、年轻妇女、少男少女、同性恋者、异性恋者。不用多说,我这个 40 多岁的妇人当然也是粉丝。他的青春活力、热情、坚毅,感染了许多人。

这几年,Gareth Malone 为 BBC  录制合唱节目,到破城镇、烂学校去,组织合唱团,甚至把孩子们带到伦敦的音乐厅  (Royal Albert Hall) 去表演,把不可能的事,变成可能。

 

Gareth Malone 把军人无法掌控的命运、军妻的焦虑和思念,化作这首清越的合唱歌曲,在圣诞节期间,撼人至深,连我也 hold 不住了。

“无论你在何方” 的歌词,来自这些英军和妻子、女友的一组情诗。

谱曲者,正是威廉王子和凯特婚礼的年轻作曲人,35 岁的 Paul Mealor。

Ahhhhhh

Wherever you are my love will keep you safe, 无论你在何方,我的爱保守你平安

My heart will build a bridge of light across both time and space. 我的心为你筑一道光的桥,穿越时空

Wherever you are, our hearts still beat as one 无论你在何方,你我心跳如一

I hold you in my dreams each night until your task is done  我在梦里夜夜守护着你,直到你完成使命那一天。

Light up the darkness, my wondrous star 光照黑暗,神奇之星

Our hopes and dreams, my heart and yours, forever shining far 希望和梦想,同心相连,永恒闪烁

Light up the darkness, my prince of peace. 照亮黑夜,和平之君

May the stars shine all around you may your courage never cease. 愿星星将你环绕;愿你的勇气永不停歇

Ooooooh

Wherever I am, I will love you day by day 无论我在何方,依然爱你如故

I will keep you safe, cling on to faith, along the dark dark way  我将守护你,守住信念,在幽暗之境

Wherever I am, I will hold on through the night 无论我在何方,我将熬过长夜漫漫,

I will pray each day a safe return, will look now to the light 每一天,我将祈祷你能平安归来,我将仰望那道星光

Light up the darkness, my wondrous star 光照黑暗,神奇之星

Our hopes and dreams, my heart and yours, forever shining far 希望和梦想,同心相连,永恒闪烁

Light up the darkness, my prince of peace, 照亮黑夜,和平之君

May the stars shine all around you may your courage never cease. 愿星星将你环绕;愿你的勇气永不停歇

Ahhhhhhh

May your courage never cease…愿你的勇气永不停歇

注:我的直译不是最好的,欢迎读者用你们的生花妙笔,提供各种翻译版本,雅俗皆可,五言七言绝句也行,把这首歌发扬光大。谢谢!
