The song "Love me is not my duty" is composed by Groovedog, a Russian-majored junior.

I'd like to share the song with you and you are welcome to share your opinions here.:)

You are welcome to give the Chinese version or share your personal critique here :-)
PS: "Turn around" reminds me of a classic country song Don't cry Joni. If interested, you can log on http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/lan ... /content_736386.htm for enjoyment.

Turn around 创作成员
Music: groovedog
Lyrics: johnlam (Except "I turned around and I finally knew u were gone" by groovedog and "I heard a  sound and you finally got out of town" by hester)
Backing vocal: johnlam & pupi
Performed & guitar & flute: groovedog

Turn around 创作背景
johnlam说:“我记得那时候groovedog给我一首Demo,还有几句歌词。他说那几句歌词要在歌里面,其他的随我怎么写。然后我就写了其他的歌词,写的大概是A喜欢B,但又没有向B说出口,B知道A喜欢自己,但是不知道自己是否喜欢A,等到想通了的时候发现A已经离自己而去了…… 其他人听出来的什么样的版本我就不知道了。”

Turn around 听后感  by 吴小蓉
每个人对每首歌都有不同的诠释,听着这首用轻快的调子唱出逝去的曾经,我不仅想起这样一段话:“我们不过是这里的过客, 不曾因为她改变什么,也不会改变她什么,只不过心里的某个角落被打开了,就再也合不上了……当我离开的时候我知道生命中的一部分已经永远留在了那里。”

Turn around中文译文   by Page_c
灯灭了
我仍能看到你的脸
无论我身在何方
你的声音耳边依旧
它让我相信我拥有整个世界
在你扭转身的一霎那

想当然是我最愚蠢的错
我怎能忽视
你和我说话时眼神里深藏的秘密
想告诉你喜欢你却不知我是否爱你
时光匆匆只记载我的错
等我醒悟时你已远离小镇

这么多年
一直想忘记你却不知该如何忘记
好后悔我没说
“我爱你”三个字改变了我们的命运
从不愿我们的故事会是这样的结局

如今的我日日夜夜都在思念你
好想回到从前好希望你也这样去想
扭转身
我知道你已离我远去

我四处寻找
虽然我知道你已离开小镇
我只想知道
你在哪里你是否快乐

我听之我见 By 吴小蓉

第一次听到“Love me is not duty”就被它吸引了,不记得有多久没听到这样纯纯的简单的校园歌曲了。只有吉他的独奏,没有华丽的音乐的配合,非常随性…… 听着这首歌,会带着一点轻柔的浪漫情怀并不自主地会跟着它轻和。

groovedog说:“爱不是例行公事,如果两个人在一起,只是为了一种形式,那么这样的爱情还有什么价值?”当爱成了例行公事,那是怎样的一种悲哀……一次怦然的心动?一个会意的眼神?一种幸福的感觉?一段美好的回忆?一份心碎的思念?还是一丝缠绵的牵挂?在纸醉金迷的现代社会里,爱的定义越发模糊,我无法得知爱是什么,只知道爱不是例行公事。

Here are my two 2 cents' worth suggestion:

original:

You don't have to call me when you're not lonely
You don't have to care me like once you did
You don't have to hug me if you dread to it
Love me is not duty

--->
You don't have to call me when you're not lonely
You don't have to care about me like once you did
You don't have to hug me if you dread it
Loving me is not a duty

I think it should be "care about" rather than "care". Other changes are optional though.


:-)
