Mindy Gledhill I think not many people know this singer and actually I don't really know her background I am neither a Catholic nor a Christian but her songs are touching casue they are not merely about the god
Has been tired of all songs that talk about love in a stupid way but Mindy's song with her stunning voice could sing into your soul The song sings about your pain and shows how it well understands you it gives you faith to catch yourself again lets you have a precious moment to dream through one voice to portray the different pieces of life
Never had an ordinary day 從未擁有過平凡的一天 Never lived your life in an ordinary way 從未試過普通地活著 For everything you loved you paid a price 為了所有你所愛的 付出代價 But you couldn't let the world see you cry 但不能讓世界看見你落淚
Never had a moment of peace 從未擁有過一刻平靜 Never felt the sunlight 從未感受到一絲陽光 When the worries set you free 當憂慮解放 Every time your life turned a page 每次在生命中迎接新的一頁 It seemed like your heart might break 你的心似乎就要碎掉
With the world on your shoulders 當世界落在你的肩膀 When the nights had grown colder 當晚上往更寒冷裡去 You seemed to weather every storm 你彷如在每場暴風中風化 With a queen's grace 壯烈地 When you lost your husband 當你失去你的丈夫 When you buried your children 當你埋葬你的孩兒 I'm sure the angels stood in reverence as you prayed 我確信天使會敬畏地站著就如你所祈求 How much can one heart take 一顆心到底能承受多少?
Never had a day to call your own 從未擁有過屬於自己的一天 When so many needed your warm heart as a home 當太多人需要你溫暖的心作為依歸 Whispering a mother's lullaby 低唱著母親的搖籃曲 As you sat alone by the fire 獨自坐於煙火旁
And i'm sure your heart breaks, when some people still say 我相信你的心碎 當其他人還在閒說著 Somewhere down the line you lost your faith 在那條路的某個地方 你失了信心 How much can one heart take 一顆心到底能承受多少? How much can one heart take 一顆心還能承受多少?
This is not my favour song but the last sentence "How much can one heart take" is so memorable it is the question I ask myself long long time ago and because of this sentence I try to translate the whole song but of course it may not be accruate casue I have no intimate knowledge of eng.
