Musical “Man of La Mancha”]
[蕩吉呵德話劇主題曲

In this song, Quixote explains his quest and the reasons behind it …
in doing so,
he captures the essence of the play and its philosophical underpinnings.
(For me, it is absolutely magical.)

To dream … the impossible dream
夢想….這不可能之夢想
..
To fight … the unbeatable foe
去戰鬥….這不能打敗之敵人
..
To bear … with unbearable sorrow
去忍受…這不能忍受之傷感

To run … where the brave dare not go
走向…..勇者也不敢去之地方

To right … the unrightable wrong
糾正…..那不可糾正之錯

To love … pure and chaste from afar
去愛…遠方的純正与貞洁

To try … when your arms are too weary .
嘗試…當你之手臂已疲累.
.
To reach … the unreachable star
去到達….那不可到達之星辰.
..

This is my quest, to follow that star
這是我的追尋,去追隨那星辰..
.
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far ..
無論如何無希望,不論多遙遠

To fight for the right, without question or pause
為正義而戰,亳無疑問与停留 …

To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause
願意操入地獄,為了天堂的理想

And I know if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest,
我知如我只要真摯,去作這光榮的追尋

That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
我的心將會安耽於和平与安寧,

when I’m laid to my rest .
當我死去之時..

And the world will be better for this:
世界將會因此而變得更好

That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
這個人,被咒罵又披滿傷痕

Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
仍爭扎,用他最后的一點勇氣

To reach … the unreachable star .
去到達….那不可到達之星辰.
