Close To You

Why do birds
Suddenly appear?
Every time you are near
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

Why do stars
Fall down from the sky?
Every time you walk by
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you

on the day that you were born
The angels got together and decided
To create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair Of gold
and starlight in your eyes of blue

that is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you
Just like me
They long to be
Close to you
Woo... close to you...

歌词大意

只要你一靠近
为何鸟儿突然出现
就像我一样
他们也渴望
接近你

只要你一走近
为何星星从天而降
就像我一样
他们也渴望
接近你

在你出生那天
天使齐聚决定
让梦想成真
因此他们在你的头发上撒下金色的月光
在你蓝色双眸中上撒上星光

这就是为什麽全镇的女孩都跟着你
就像我一样
他们也渴望亲近你
就像我一样他们也渴望亲近你,
亲近你,亲近你

1. Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?
  =Why do birds suddenly appear whenever you do every time?
  每当你走近,为什么鸟儿突然出现?
  appear(作为动词)表示“出现、显露、露面”
  例如: He didn't appear until six. 他六点才来。
  every time常常用来引导时间状语从句,意为:每当……的时候。
  例:Every time we meet, he replies to a lot of questions I ask him.
  每次我们见面,他总回答许多我问的问题。
  John wins every time we play.
  每当我们玩球,约翰总赢。

2.Just like me they long to be close to you.
  正像我一样,他们渴望与你亲近。
  long vi.(常与for, to inf连用)渴望
  I longed for a bicycle.
  我特想要辆自行车。
  These young lads are longing to go to watch the football match.
  这几个小伙子极想去观看足球赛。
  be close to的意思表示:接近、靠近。 to后面跟名词。
  例如: His house is close to the school.
  他的家与学校毗邻。
  He is close to the hearts of us.
  他和我们心连心。

3.Why do stars fall down from the sky.
  =What reasons do those stars drop from the sky.
  句中的 fall down意指:倒下,伏下,落下、失败等。
  例: London bridge is falling down, falling down.
  伦敦大桥要倒了,要倒了。
  这句话选自一首古老的英国歌曲,叫《伦敦桥》(London Bridge)。

4.On the day that you were born the angels got together and decided to create a dream come true
  =The day when you were born the angels came together and decided to make a dream become a real one.
  该句的意思指:在你出生的那天,天使们聚集一起,商议,决定创造一个梦想,让其变为真的。即是说天使们的神力使你从小就变成一位可爱的人。实际上,从文化的角度审视,这样的说法来自基督文化。在《圣经》的《新约全中》中“福音全书”里曾记载,耶稣基督(Jesus Christ)是创造了天、地、万物及生灵的上帝的独生子。在他出生的那天,天使集会,国王献礼,庆贺救世主的诞生,因而,该首歌中的作者引用这一典型的典故把自己认为的那个“你”奉为救世主一样圣洁可亲近。
  create:(作动词)意指:创造、造成
  例: All men are created equal
  所有人生而平等。
  The wealth of society is created by the laboring people.
  社会财富是由劳动人民所创造的。

  例: Your dream will come true if you work hard.
  只要你努力劳动,你的梦想就会成真。

  =So they scattered moonlight in your golden hair and starlight in your blue eyes.   所以天使们在你的金发上撒下月光,在你的蓝眼睛里撒下星光。
  sprinkle: 洒,喷淋,撒,使散布
  例:Please sprinkle some water on the floor before sweeping.
  扫地之前先洒些水。
  When I have berries, I'd like to sprinkle some sugar over them.
  吃浆果时,我喜欢在上面撒些糖。
