Salin

Sa Dulo ng Daan

Isinalin ko sa Filipino ang pinakapaborito kong awitin, ang “Go the Distance” na inawit ni Michael Bolton at siyang theme song ng pelikulang Hercules ng Disney. Masaya ako sa kinalabasan ng salin, na sinikap kong maging idyomatiko, at sa palagay ko’y nakuha naman ang tunay na ipinapakahulugan ng orihinal na liriko.

Go the Distance

(Michael Bolton)

I have often dreamed, of a far off place
Where a hero’s welcome, would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer, when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying, this is where I’m meant to be

I’ll be there someday, I can go the distance
I will find my way, if I can be strong
I know ev’ry mile, will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I’ll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road, to embrace my fate
Though that road may wander, it will lead me to you
And a thousand years, would be worth the wait
It might take a lifetime, but somehow I’ll see it through

And I won’t look back, I can go the distance
And I’ll stay on track, no, I won’t accept defeat
It’s an uphill slope, but I won’t lose hope
Till I go the distance, and my journey is complete

But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero’s strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star, I will go the distance
I will search the world, I will face its harms
I don’t care how far, I can go the distance
Till I find my hero’s welcome, waiting in your arms

I will search the world, I will face it’s harms
Till I find my hero’s welcome, waiting in your arms

 

Sa Dulo ng Daan

(Filipino version: Manolito Sulit)

Hinahanap ko/ ay isang dako
May sabik na bayan/ sa pagbabalik ko
At nagbubunyi/ ang mga tao
Puso’y nagsasabi/ na ako ay dumito.

Paroon ako,/ darating balang araw
Hahanapin ko,/ loob ko ay lalaksan
Ang bawat hakbang,/ di masasayang
Pag humayo at puwang ko ay natagpuan

Sa nilalandas,/ yaring palad ko
Saan man dumako,/ sa iyo ang tungo
Libo mang taon/ ang gugulin ko
Kahit habambuhay,/ kakayanin ko ito

Di na lilingon,/ bagtasin itong daan
Di malilihis,/ aking pagwawagian
Kabundukan man/ ay lalaktawan
Hayo na sa dulo ng aking paglalakbay.

Ngunit masdan ang giting/ higit sa tagumpay,
Puso ang sukatan ng ‘yong tapang.

Hahayo akong/ kapara’y bulalakaw
Susuyurin ko,/ mundo at panganib man
Magpakalayo,/ tahakin ang daan
Nang masapit ko ang yakap mong naghihintay.

Hahanapin ko,/ may balakid man
Nang masumpungan ang yakap mong naghihintay.
