    今日 Today

    Artist:John Steward1


    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, 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 contented2 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。
