The Nearness of You
Norah Jones Lyrics


It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you will only grant me
The right to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you
It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you
When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true
I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you will only grant me
The right to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you



Franklin Fretel Neyra

No es la luna pálida lo que me excita
Que me emociona y me deleita
Oh no, es solo tu cercanía
No es tu dulce conversación
Que trae esta sensación
Oh no, es solo tu cercanía
Cuando estas en mis brazos
Y te siento tan cerca de mi
Todos mis sueños más salvajes se hicieron realidad
No necesito luces suaves para encantarme
Si tan solo me concedes
El derecho a abrazarte tan fuerte
Y sentir en la noche
Tu cercanía

The Nearness of You
Norah Jones
Album: Come Away With Me

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you will only grant me
The right to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you

🌃💑《Let me translate the words of this song into Japanese》💕🌃

♪以下はこの曲の拙訳になりますー鑑賞の際の参考になれば幸いです。。。


「貴方のおそばに」

かすかな月の光なんかじゃないの、あたしをアツくさせるのはードキドキさせたり、嬉しい気持ちにしてくれるのはー違うのよ…ただ貴方のそばに居られるってそのことなの

貴方のやさしい言葉でもないのーこのときめきを連れてきてくれるのは…そうじゃなくて、ただ貴方のそばに居られるってそのことなの

両腕をまわして、貴方をすごく近くに感じれるときーあたしの途方もない夢たちが全部叶っちゃうのよ…【1】

ソフトな灯りなんて要らないわーウットリなんてさせてくれなくていいの…もし貴方が許してくれさえすればーただ貴方をギュッとしててもいいって、そして夜じゅう感じて居てもいいってー貴方のそばに居るんだってことをね…


【脚注1】こゝでノラは ”all my wildest dreams came true” と動詞を過去形にしているが、文法に詳しくないコメ主にはイマイチよくその意図が掴めない…以前に「英語に於いてはたとえ現在の時制でも、実現の可能性の低い事柄に関しては過去形を用いることがある」ってな記事を読んだ覚えがあるので、ひょっとしたらノラの場合もそうしたニュアンスを付け足しているのかも知れないが…

The Nearness Of You

It's not the pale moon
that excites me
That thrills and delights me, .... oh no
It's just the nearness of you...

It isn't your,,, sweet conversation...
That brings this sensation,
oh no...
It's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms.... and I feel you..
so close to me..
All my,, wildest dreams,, came true...

I need no soft lights
to enchant me....
If you'll,,, only grant me
the right...
To hold you ever
so tight....
And to feel,,, in the night...
the nearness of you

私をときめかせる淡い月明かりじゃないのよ
何かが私を気持ちよく、嬉しくさせるの
あらやだ、あなたが近くにいるだけじゃない
あなたの甘い言葉じゃないのよ
何かが私をこの感覚にさせるの
あらやだ、あなたが近くにいるだけじゃない
あなたが私の腕の中にいて
私があなたをすごく近くに感じる時
私の夢は全部どうでもよくなるの
魔法のようなそんな優しい光いらないの
あなたが私を受け入れてくれさえすれば
こんな夜にあなたを強くいつまでも抱きしめて
感じることができるのは
あなたが近くにいるからよ

It’s not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no, it’s just the nearness of you

It isn’t your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no, it’s just the nearness of you


When you’re in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you will only grant me the right
to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you
