What If God Was One Of Us

這首歌是我還滿喜歡的歌曲,一開始是在香草天空中聽到湯姆克魯斯唱的

直到今日,我還是忘記不了他唱歌時那種感覺世界上的人都不了解他的感受

或許是這個因素,吸引著我吧!

我的中文翻譯,是在聽了幾遍之後寫出的,裡頭也參雜一些個人的想法

重點是感情吧!希望你也會喜歡這首歌


Joan Osborne - What If God Was One Of Us
如果,神如凡人

If god had a name, what would it be
如果 神應該有名字,那應該叫做什麼?
and would you call it to his face
就算真有,你會當著他的面直呼他的名諱嗎?
if you were faced with him in all his glory
如果你在祂的光芒之中面對著他
what would you ask if you had just one question
而你又只能問一個問題,你會問祂什麼?

and yeah yeah god is great yeah yeah god is good
耶!神是如此神聖不可侵
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

what if god was one of us
如果 神就在我們之中
just a slob like one of us
就像我們一樣不修邊幅
just a stranger on the bus
像公車上遇見的陌生人一般
trying to make his way home
只是想找到回家的路
if god had a face what would it look like
如果 神有了面貌,那應該是怎麼樣的一張臉
and would you want to see
如果你去親眼目睹了
if seeing meant that you would have to believe
在看到之後,你會如何相信這一切呢?
in things like heaven and in jesus and the saints and all the prophets
像是天堂,耶穌與門徒,甚至是那些先知這些事物呢

and yeah yeah god is great yeah yeah god is good
耶!神是如此神聖不可侵
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

如果 神就在我們之中
just a slob like one of us

trying to make his way home
只想找到回家的道路
he's trying to make his way home
祂正在尋找能夠回去的道路
back up to heaven all alone
孤單地走回到天堂的到物
nobody calling on the phone
沒有人會透過電話與祂去溝通
except for the pope maybe in rome
或許羅馬的教宗除外

神就是如此地令人喜歡
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
what if god was one of us
如果 神就在我們之中
just a slob like one of us
就像我們一般邋遢不修邊幅
just a stranger on the bus
就像是個在公車上的陌生人一般
trying to make his way home
企圖找到一條回家的道路
just trying to make his way home
也只是想要回家而已
like a holy rolling stone
像是一個神聖的滾石一般
back up to heaven all alone
單獨地前往天堂之路
just trying to make his way home
就是想要找到回去的道路
nobody calling on the phone
沒有人,也不會有人用電話跟他閒聊
except for the pope maybe in rome
羅馬的教宗除外吧!
