建议大家先对着歌词听一遍音乐,再看后面的精析。效果会更好~

Say you're sorry

你深表歉意

That face of an angel

可你那副纯真的天使面孔

Comes out just when you need it to

在必要时 总会显现

As I paced back

这令我来回辗转

and forth all this time

难以理清头脑思绪

Cause I honestly believed in you

只因我无条件 深信于你

Holding on

为你坚守着

The days drag on

岁月漫长

Stupid girl,

傻姑娘啊

I should have known, I should have known

其实我早该明白

I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale

自己并非幸福童话中的公主

I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet,

你未必会对我迷恋痴心

Lead her up the stairwell

也不会将我引领至楼梯间

This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town,

好莱坞梦幻的情景 不会上演于这座小城镇

I was a dreamer before you went and let me down

在你抛弃我 留我心碎前 我本满怀憧憬

Now it's too late for you

如今你身骑白马而赴

And your white horse, to come around

却也为时已晚

Maybe I was naive,

或许我年轻气盛

Got lost in your eyes

因你双眸 迷醉难自拔

And never really had a chance

早已错失良机

My mistake,

我曾误解爱情

I didn't know to be in love

如今已不愿再投身

You had to fight to have the upper hand

必得竭力争取 方才抢占上风的爱河

I had so many dreams

我曾对于这份感情

About you and me

满怀期许

Happy endings

盼望幸福结局

Now I know

可如今我顿悟

I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale

自己并非幸福童话中的公主

I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet,

你未必会对我迷恋痴心

Lead her up the stairwell

也不会将我引领至楼梯间

This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town,

好莱坞梦幻的情景 不会上演于这座小城镇

I was a dreamer before you went and let me down

在你抛弃我 留我心碎前 我本满怀憧憬

Now it's too late for you

如今你身骑白马而赴

And your white horse, to come around

却也为时已晚

And there you are on your knees,

此刻你虔诚下跪

Begging for forgiveness, begging for me

忠心祈求我原谅

Just like I always wanted but I'm sooo sorry

正如我曾所想的那样 但这次很抱歉

Cause I'm not your princess, this ain't a fairytale

我并非幸福童话中的公主

I'm gonna find someone someday

终有一日 我将觅得那名

who might actually treat me well

真心待我的真命天子

This is a big world, that was a small town

大千世界里 我身处的这座小城镇

There in my rearview mirror disappearing now

就这样在我后视镜中 消散无踪

And it's too late for you and your white horse

你身骑白马 姗姗来迟

Now it's too late for you and your white horse

再试图将我挽回

to catch me now

却为时已晚

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa

Try and catch me now

再试图将我挽回

Oh, it's too late

却为时已晚

To catch me now

你我就此分别

Perusal

The days drag on

岁月漫长

中文释义:

不必要地拖延;拖得过久

英文释义:

You say that an event or process drags on when you disapprove of the fact that it lasts for longer than necessary.

例句:

The conflict with James has dragged on for two years.

与詹姆斯的冲突拖了两年。


I should have known, I should have known

其实我早该明白

拓展:

“should have done something”这是一个高频考点。一共有四种含义:

1

表示“应该做某事却没有做”,通常表达一种责备或内疚的语气。

我们来看两个例子:

①I never did actually, so I think I should have done more.

事实上我还没有,所以我想我应该做得更多。

②You should have reported them to the police. 你应当向警方控告他们的。

2

“should + 完成时”与虚拟条件连用,表示“与过去事实不符或相反的虚拟语气”。

if 从句用过去完成时,主句用“should + 完成时”,主句的主语仅限于使用第一人称。这时,should 可以用would 代替。例如:

①If I had seen Mary I should/would have invited her. 我当时要是看到玛丽的话我本会邀请她的。

②If I had received the present, I should/would have thanked him. 如果我收到了礼物,我是应当向他道谢的。

3

“should + 完成时”,还可以表示推测,推测“在将来某个时间之前应该业已完成的动作”

举个栗子:

①They should have arrived in Beijing by this time. 他们这个时候该到北京了。

②I think I should gave finished it by then. 我想到那时应该完成了。

我这里有一道例题,大家可以看看~

4

“should + 完成时”,还可以用来“对过去发生的情况,表示惊讶、后悔、难过、不理解、不可思议”等情绪,翻译时通常含有“竟然”的意味。

I am surprised that you should have acted so indiscreetly. 你竟然表现得如此轻率,我感到惊讶。


I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet,

你未必会对我迷恋痴心

中文释义:

使一见倾心;把…一下子迷住

英文释义:

If someone sweeps you off your feet, you fall in love with them very quickly because you find them very attractive or exciting to.

例句:

I was swept off my feet. I had always dreamed of being an officer's wife.

我被迷得神魂颠倒,一直梦想着成为官太太。

拓展:

“使...一见倾心”的表达,常见的还有这个单词:

enamour ”vt. 使倾心,使迷恋【To fall in love with sb or sth or be attracted by some characteristics.】

例如:

She was truly enamoured of New York.

她真的很向往纽约。


You had to fight to have the upper hand

必得竭力争取 方才抢占上风的爱河

中文释义:

占优势/上风,有利地位

英文释义:

control or an advantage over a person or situation.

例句:

①Agassi briefly got the upper handin the second set.

②Government troops have the upper hand in the offensive.

拓展:

这个短语有很多种表达:have/get/gain/take the upper hand都可以表示相同意思。

这个短语也推荐在写作中使用,用来表示“xxx比xxx有优势”~
