英文歌词

Linkin Park: Iridescent

You were standing in the wake of devastation

You were waiting on the edge of the unknown

With the cataclysm raining down

Inside's crying save me now

You were there impossibly alone

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation

You build up hope but failure's all you've known

Remember all the sadness and frustration

And let it go

Let it go

 

And in a burst of light that blinded every angel

As if the sky had blown the heavens into stones

You felt the gravity of tempered grace

Falling into empty space

No one there to catch you in their arms

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation

You build up hope but failure's all you've known

Remember all the sadness and frustration

And let it go

Let it go

Let it go

Let it go

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation

You build up hope but failure's all you've known

Remember all the sadness and frustration

And let it go

Let it go

 

学习笔记:

1.devastation
当别人都在使用damage、ruin这种简单词时,用devastation这个积极词汇来替代,更能显示自己英语的与众不同哦~

2.cataclysm
这个词可以解释为洪水,用来替代较为简单的flood很好哟~

3.feel lost in desperation
因绝望而迷茫,in desperation的近义词可以为in despair,二者含义相差无几
这里的介词in表示一种状态,有略微的隐含因果关系

4.a burst of light
一束强光
Light找不到合适的量词?这里就是很好的范例

5.gravity
可以解释为物理学中的重力、地心引力
但是像这种看似没什么用处的学术性的词汇,也可以用的很地道
在这里gravity就是重量,可以用来代替第一反应词heaviness
