Safari Man – 海外駐在日記 | 洋楽歌詞の和訳で英語を勉強しTOEIC900を目指す

彼の英文は、それまで見てきたどの英作文よりも飛び抜けて英語らしく、私はてっきり彼が英語圏で教育を受けたものと思い、「どこに何年住んでいたの」と聞きました。ところが、それに対して彼は、「いいえ。海外に住んだことはありません」と答えたのです。これには二度驚きました。  よく話を聞いてみると、彼は中学に入ったころから大の洋楽ファンとなり、歌詞を懸命に覚えただけでなく、添えられている和訳を読むだけでは満足できずに、辞書などを調べて原文の意味を理解しようとしたというのです。

[Verse 1: Phillip Carlyle]
You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
I know you want me
So don't keep saying our hands are tied
You claim it's not in the cards
And fate is pulling you miles away
And out of reach from me
But you're here in my heart
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny?

  • hands are tied -《someone's ~》何もできないでいる、自由にならない
  • not in the cards - その運命ではない、あり得ない、ありそうにない

You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
I know you want me
So don't keep saying our hands are tied
You claim it's not in the cards
And fate is pulling you miles away
And out of reach from me
But you're here in my heart
So who can stop me if I decide
That you're my destiny? 

[Chorus 1: Phillip Carlyle]
What if we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine
Nothing could keep us apart
You'd be the one I was meant to find
It's up to you, and it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
So why don't we rewrite the stars?
Maybe the world could be ours
Tonight

  • what if - もし~だったらどうなるか、もし~としたらどうなるだろうか、たとえ~でも構うもんか

[Verse 2: Anne Wheeler]
You think it's easy
You think I don't want to run to you
But there are mountains
And there are doors that we can't walk through
I know you're wondering why
Because we're able to be
Just you and me
Within these walls
But when we go outside
You're gonna wake up and see that it was hopeless after all

[Chorus 2: Anne Wheeler]
No one can rewrite the stars
How can you say you'll be mine?
Everything keeps us apart
And I'm not the one you were meant to find
It's not up to you, it's not up to me
When everyone tells us what we can be
How can we rewrite the stars?
Say that the world can be ours
Tonight

[Post Chorus: Both, Anne Wheeler, Phillip Carlyle]
All I want is to fly with you
All I want is to fall with you
So just give me all of you
It feels impossible
It's not impossible
Is it impossible?
Say that it's possible

[Chorus 3: Phillip Carlyle and Anne Wheeler]
How do we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine?
Nothing can keep us apart
Cause you are the one I was meant to find
It's up to you, and it's up to me
No one can say what we get to be
And why don't we rewrite the stars?
Changing the world to be ours

[Outro: Anne Wheeler]
You know I want you
It's not a secret I try to hide
But I can't have you
We're bound to break and
My hands are tied
