小編知識小提醒龐貝城 是古羅馬時的城市之一,因為維蘇威火山爆發,一夜之間,龐貝活埋於火山灰下。當龐貝城再次重見天日時,在那兒發現很多古代文物、建築,因為這個火山的災難,卻避過了時間對事物的摧殘,不被俗世所摧毀。

 

 

 

 

I was left to my own devices
到頭來 我還是困在自己的網中
Many days fell away with nothing to show
平凡的日子 一天又一天的過

And the walls kept tumbling down
突然 牆磚不停地坍塌、倒下
In the city that we love
在我們所愛的城市 坍方
Great clouds roll over the hills
巨大的烏雲籠罩整個山丘
Bringing darkness from above
將黑暗 帶到我們的城市中

But if you close your eyes,
但假如你 閉上雙眼
Does it almost feel like
是不是就像是
Nothing changed at all?
一切都沒有變呢?
And if you close your eyes,
假如你閉上你的眼睛
Does it almost feel like
有沒有感覺到
You've been here before?
一切似曾相識呢?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
為什麼 我還能那麼地樂觀呢?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
為什麼 我還能夠樂觀看待呢?

We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
我們都被自己的所作所為所禁錮
In your pose as the dust settles around us
直到最後葬身於塵埃中

And the walls kept tumbling down
突然 牆磚不停地坍塌、倒下
In the city that we love
在我們所愛的城市 坍方
Great clouds roll over the hills
巨大的烏雲籠罩整個山丘
Bringing darkness from above
將黑暗 帶到我們的城市中

But if you close your eyes,
但假如你 閉上雙眼
Does it almost feel like
是不是就像是
Nothing changed at all?
一切都沒有變呢?
And if you close your eyes,
假如你閉上你的眼睛
Does it almost feel like
有沒有感覺到
You've been here before?
一切似曾相識呢?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
為什麼 我還能那麼地樂觀呢?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
為什麼 我還能夠樂觀看待呢?

Oh where do we begin?
噢 該從哪開始彌補呢
The rubble or our sins?
從身邊的雜亂 還是自身的混濁?
Oh where do we begin?
噢 該從哪開始彌補呢
The rubble or our sins?
從身邊的雜亂 還是自身的混濁?

And the walls kept tumbling down
突然 牆磚不停地坍塌、倒下
In the city that we love
在我們所愛的城市 坍方
Great clouds roll over the hills
巨大的烏雲籠罩整個山丘
Bringing darkness from above
將黑暗 帶到我們的城市中

But if you close your eyes,
但假如你 閉上雙眼
Does it almost feel like
是不是就像是
Nothing changed at all?
一切都沒有變呢?
And if you close your eyes,
假如你閉上你的眼睛
Does it almost feel like
有沒有感覺到
You've been here before?
一切似曾相識呢?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
為什麼 我還能那麼地樂觀呢?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
為什麼 我還能夠樂觀看待呢?

If you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?
假若 你閉上雙眼 是不是就像甚麼都沒改變過呢?
