Someone Saved My Life Tonight-Elton John (中文歌詞)


Someone Saved My Life Tonight
原唱者:Elton John


When I think of those East End lights, muggy nights

The curtain's drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
(註:Prima Donna是義大利文的第一夫人)

Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair

And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore

We've all gone crazy lately

My friends out there rolling round the basement floor

And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
(註:Sugar Bear是Elton John的朋友之暱稱) 

You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear

You nearly had me roped and tied
This lyrics is translated by Three Minute Passion

Altar-bound, hypnotized

Sweet freedom whispered in my ear

You're a butterfly

And butterflies are free to fly

Fly away, high away, bye bye

I never realised the passing hours of evening showers

A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams

I'm strangled by your haunted social scene

Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen


All lyrics translations from  Three Minutes Passion are original

It's four o'clock in the morning

Damn it listen to me good

I'm sleeping with myself tonight

Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive

And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river

Clinging to your stocks and bonds

Paying your H.P. demands forever

They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home

Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight

So save your strength and run the field you play alone

這首歌是 Elton John當年正準備要和未婚妻結婚時所寫下。其實他並不想和女人結婚,雖然答應了對方,但是他的內心很痛苦。
