Berikut ini adalah terjemahan lagu The Spirit Carries On dari band progressif rock

Dream Theatre yang liriknya bagus banget buat bikin kita jadi lebih semangat hidup.
Where did we come from ?
Kita berasal dari mana ?
Why are we here ?
Kenapa kita berada di sini ?
Where do we go when we die?
Jika kita mati ke mana kita pergi ?
What lies beyond ?
Apakah hanya kebohongan alam?
And what lay before ?
Apa yang terjadi sebelumnya
Is anything certain in life?
Apakah hidup ini memang sudah ditentukan ?
They say, life is too short,
Mereka bilang: hidup ini terlalu pendek
The here and the now
Disini dan sekarang
And youre only given one shot
Dan kau hanya diberi satu kali kesempatan
But could there be more,
Tapi apa mungkin lebih dari itu
Have I lived before,
Apa aku pernah hidup sebelumnya
Or could this be all that weve got?
Atau emang hanya ini yang kita dapat?
If I die tomorrow Id be allright
Jika aku mati besok, aku kan baik saja
Because I believe That after were gone
Karena aku percaya, walaupun setelah kita tidak ada
The spirit carries on
Jiwa ini akan tetap ada
I used to be frightened of dying
Dulu aku sangat takut akan kematian
I used to think death was the end
Dulu aku pikir kematian adalah akhir
But that was before, Im not scared anymore
Tapi itu dulu, sekarang aku tak takut lagi
I know that my soul will transcend
Aku tau jiwaku akan berpindah
I may never find all the answers
Aku mungkin tak akan pernah menemukan semua jawabannya
I may never understand why
Aku mungkin tak akan pernah mengerti mengapa ini terjadi
I may never prove What I know to be true
Aue juga tak akan bisa membuktikan segala yang aku tau itu benar
But I know that I still have to try
Tapi aku tau bahwa aku harus tetap mencoba

Move on, be brave, Dont weep at my grave
Ayo, beranilah, jangan menangis di kuburanku
Because I am no longer here
Karena aku tak lagi berada disini
But please never let your memory of me disappear
Tapi tolong jangan biarkan kenangan tentangku terhapus dari pikiranmu

Safe in the light that surrounds me
Aman dalam cahaya yang mengelilingiku
Free of the fear and the pain
Terbebas dari rasa takut dan kepedihan
My questioning mind Has helped me to find
Pikiranku yang terus bertanya telah membantuku menemukan
The meaning in my life again
Arti dari hidup ku lagi
Victorias real I finally feel
Victoria (nama orang) benar, akhirnya aku merasakan
At peace with the girl in my dreams
Kedamaian dengan gadis impianku
And now that Im here Its perfectly clear
Sekarang aku di sini, segalanya telah jelas
I found out what all of this means
Aku tau apa arti semua ini
*****
Tema album Dream Theatre yang Metropolis adalah tentang seorang cowok yang
bernama Nicholas yang berkepribadian ganda dan sedang menjalani terapi hipnotis
(regrassion). dia selalu merasa dikejar-kejar seseorang bernama Victoria Page, Victoria
ini lah yang menjadi diri Nicholas yang satu lagi..
Victoria Page adalah seorang gadis korban pembunuhan pada tahun tahun 1928,
sedangkan Nicholas adalah pemuda yang hidup pada tahun 1999..
Beberapa lagu sebelum The Spirit Carries On ini menceritakan tentang lika-liku
perjalanan Nicholas pada saat ia mengidap kepribadian ganda, kenapa Victoria Page
dibunuh dst. Dan pada lagu ini Nicholas mulai sembuh dari penyakit kepribadian ganda
yang dia idap, ini terlihat dari bait :
move on, be brave .. dont weep at my grave
because i am no longer here, but please
never let your memory of me .. disappear!
Karena ini adalah lagu terakhir, jadi lagu ini menjadi ending / anti klimaks dari semua
cerita diatas. Dimana Nicholas sudah terbebas dari Victoria Page..
Album ini memang di dominasi oleh John Petrucci sang gitaris, dimana semua lagu2
dan jalan cerita di album ini merupakan ide dari John Petrucci.

Lyrics by john petrucci

Nicholas:
Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?
What lies beyond
And what lay before?
Is anything certain in life?

They say, "life is too short,"
"the here and the now"
And "you're only given one shot"
But could there be more,
Have I lived before,
Or could this be all that we've got?

If I die tomorrow
I'd be allright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened of dying
I used to think death was the end
But that was before
I'm not scared anymore
I know that my soul will transcend

I may never find all the answers
I may never understand why
I may never prove
What I know to be true
But I know that I still have to try
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/d/dream+theater/the+spirit+carries+on_20043389.html ]
If I die tomorrow
I'd be allright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

Victoria:
"move on, be brave
Don't weep at my grave
Because I am no longer here
But please never let
Your memory of me disappear"

Nicholas:
Safe in the light that surrounds me
Free of the fear and the pain
My questioning mind
Has helped me to find
The meaning in my life again
Victoria's real
I finally feel
At peace with the girl in my dreams
And now that I'm here
It's perfectly clear
I found out what all of this means

If I die tomorrow
I'd be allright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

Hypnotherapist:
"you are once again surrounded by a brilliant white light. allow the light to lead you away from your
past and into this lifetime. as the light dissipates you will slowly fade back into con
Sness remembering all you have learned. when I tell you to open your eyes you will return to the
present, feeling peaceful and refreshed. open your eyes, nicholas.

Nicholas:
Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?
What lies beyond
And what lay before?
Is anything certain in life?

They say, "life is too short,"
"the here and the now"
And "you're only given one shot"
But could there be more,
Have I lived before,
Or could this be all that we've got?

*If I die tomorrow
I'd be allright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened of dying
I used to think death was the end
But that was before
I'm not scared anymore
I know that my soul will transcend

I may never find all the answers
I may never understand why
I may never prove
What I know to be true
But I know that I still have to try

CHANCES
Song by : Five For Fighting

Chances are when said and done
Wholl be the lucky ones
Who make it all the way
Through you say I could be your answer
Nothing lasts forever
No matter how it feels today

Chances are well find a new equation
Chances roll away from me
Chances are all they hope to be

Dont get me wrong, Id never say never
Cause though Love cant change the
weather
No act of God could pull me away from you
Im just a realistic man
A bottle filled with sheels and sand
Afraid to look beyond what I could lose
when it comes to you
And though Id see us through

Chances are well find two destinations
Chances roll away from me
Still chances are more than expectations
But possibilities over me

Lay your money on the sun
Until your crash what have you done
Is there a better bet than love
What you are is what you bring
You gotta cry before you sing Chances

Chances lost are hopes torn out pages
And maybe this time

Chances are the fascination
Chances wont escape from me
Chances are only what we make them
And all I need

I dreamed a dream
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I prayed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted
But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hopes apart
And they turn your dream to shame
Still I dream he'd come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather
I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed
If I ain't got you

Some people live for the fortune
Some people live just for the
fame
Some people live for the power
yeah
Some people live just to play the
game

Bridge
Some people think that the
physical things
Define what's within
I've been there before
But that life's a bore
So full of the superficial

Chorus
(octave up)
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you

Verse:
Some people search for a fountain
Promises forever young
Some people need three dozen
roses
And that's the only way to prove
you love them

Bridge:
And in a world on a silver
platter
And wondering what it means
No one to share, no one who truly
cares for me

Chorus:
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you

If I ain't got you with me baby
Nothing in this whole wide world
don't mean a thing
If I ain't got you with me baby
