Missy Higgins-Sugarcane

甘蔗

Baby ballerina's hiding somewhere in the corner

跳芭蕾舞的娃娃正藏在某个角落里

Where the shadow wraps around her

阴影笼罩着她

And our torches cannot find her

我们举着火把却找不到她


She will stay there 'till the morning

她将一直呆在那儿到天明

Crawl behind us as we are yawning

当我们瞌睡连连的时候从我们身后爬走

And she will leave our gang to never be the same

她将离开我们去别的地方


So grow tall sugarcane

甘蔗长得很高

Eat the soil drink the rain

它以土壤为食只饮雨水

But no, they'll chase you if you play their little games

但是,你若帮它一把,它会长得跟你一样高

So run, run fast sugarcane

快长,甘蔗快快长


You see my peep-show booth is handy

你看,我的西洋景货摊就在手边

There's a one way only mirror

它只有一面是镜子

So I can dance here with my head out but I don't see if you get bitter

所以我可以伸出头来跳舞,但是我看不见你是否痛苦

And there's a button right beside me

我的身边有个按钮

If I happen to want a wall to hide me

是否我需要一面墙把我挡住?

If only the ballerina had one too

只要芭蕾娃娃也有一面墙


So grow tall sugarcane

甘蔗长得很高

Eat the soil drink the rain

它以土壤为食只饮雨水

But no, they'll chase you if you play their little games

但是,你若帮它一把,它会长得跟你一样高

So run, run fast sugarcane

快长,甘蔗快快长


She said always be afraid

她说她总是会害怕

Yeah you should always be afraid

是的你总是会害怕


So grow tall sugarcane

甘蔗长得很高

Eat the soil drink the rain

它以土壤为食只饮雨水

But no, they'll chase you if you play their little games

但是,你若帮它一把,它会长得跟你一样高


Yeah you better run, run fast, sugarcane

你快些长,甘蔗。

Yeah you better run, run fast, sugarcane

你快些长,甘蔗。


歌词大意:一个小芭蕾舞者因为躲藏在一片甘蔗地中,到了第二天不幸也变成了甘蔗,然后始终在这里慢慢地成长。 Eat the soil drink the rain:尝着土壤喝着雨水。她就这么将自己藏匿在自然中,远离了尘世的喧嚣,也逐渐失去了思索与感受的能力。但当她再度看到有人长发披肩翩翩起舞,她才又不可避免地感到内心的痛楚。如果这时有一个洞或者一堵墙那该有多好……
