horizontal rule

[1] rhythm (n) 節奏(h不發音)Let’s play the song in a different rhythm.我們用不同的節奏來彈這首歌吧! 

[2] falling (adj) 落下的  fall (v) 掉落(三態 fall, fell, fallen

[3] what a +名詞 是「感嘆句」,意為「多麼…的啊」,例:What a pretty girl you are! 你是多麼漂亮的女孩啊!

[4] I’ve been I have been的縮寫,現在完成式,beenbe的過去分詞,表示「從以前到現在一直都是」

[5] wish (v) 但願;希望  後面接that子句,如果用過去式的助動詞(would)是表示「不太可能實現的願望」

[6] in vain 是一個片語,表示「經過努力,還是沒有成功」例:I tried in vain to get to sleep.我試著想睡但睡不著。

[7] let (v) 讓;使 後面加受詞之後,要用「原形動詞」,這裡的be就是原形

[8] alone (adj) 獨自一人  I am alone.我只有一個人。 Let me be alone. 讓我自己一個人獨處吧!

[9] girl後面其實省略了「關係代名詞」that,帶領子句I care about(我關心)來說明girl

[10] 原句是The girl has gone away. 這個女生已經走了。Has gone是「現在完成式」表「已經走了」gonego的過去分詞,go away是「走開、離開」

[11] look for 是片語「尋找」例:What are you looking for? 你在找什麼?

[12] brand 本意是「用燒紅的鐵來烙印」後引申為「商標」brand new「全新的」可能來自「像剛烙印後那樣新的」;start在此當名詞「開始」之意。

[13] little (adv) 幾乎沒有;很少  此句原為She knows little that…也就是She doesn’t know that…之意。通常Little放句者,變成倒裝句,也就是主詞要放在be後面,一般動詞的話,要用助動詞幫忙,在此用does幫忙。

[14] 原句應為「That day when she left, she took my heart along with her.」當她離開那天,她把我的心一起帶走了。take along是「帶著…一起去」

[15] 原句是「Does that seem fair for her to steal my heart away when she don’t care?」當她不在乎時就把我的心偷走了,那樣顯得公平嗎?she don’t是錯誤用法,應為she doesn’t才合文法。

[16] seem (v) 似乎;好像(後面可接形容詞)fair (adj) 公平的

[17] another (n) 另一個(人)指不特定的另一個人

[18] somewhere (adv) 某個地方 far (adj) 遠的 away (adv) 離開  somewhere far away 離很遠的某個地方

[19] won’t you …?你為何不…呢?won’t will not的縮寫;that帶領子句當tell(告訴)的受詞;so (adv) 這麼

[20] ask to V是「請求某人做某事」;set/adv 是「讓某人或物處於某狀態」aglow (adj) 發光發熱的

[21] love後面是一個省略了that的子句說明lovewe knew(我們知道的)用過去式,表示以前所知的;start to grow開始成長,start在此為動詞
