I love you like the Sun loves fire – Em yêu anh như Mặt Trời yêu lửa

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”

I love you like the Sun loves fire, 
you are a part of me.
 
Be it the world, 
in ashes. 

We are nothing 
but our last breath.

Em yêu anh như Mặt Trời yêu lửa, 
anh là một bộ phận của em. 

Thế giới ta sẽ cháy, 
sẽ chỉ là tro bụi. 

Ta sẽ là, 
sẽ là hơi thở cuối cùng của ta.
