祝福大家,情人節快樂2017

我只剩下1小時不到的時間可以挑首歌了,今天開會開到晚上6點多,再送狗狗去看醫生,今年情人節是網友艾瑞克跟我說,才發現今天是情人節(到底哪一年會是我自已記得呢?)

心想著,不管再忙,我都要維持傳統點些歌,不知為何,在忙到快死的時刻(嗯,小院有了基地,我最近都在跟這個新空間打交道),想起這首歌,一首隱晦到黑洞般的歌。歌詞隱晦,歌聲倒是超好聽,先來聽歌吧。

Damien Rice 的The Blower's Daughter。

這是電影CLOSER裡的片首與片尾曲,組成很簡單,主要是男聲,吉他;中間加進大提琴,兩句女聲,整首曲子很乾淨。

電影CLOSER劇情有點複雜,若是在華人世界,似乎也不適合放在情人節裡,但反正我點了那麼多年肉麻的歌了,今年就特别點。

我想,想來寫歌詞,這首不太好翻,同樣,也是照我自已的意思翻。

Damien Rice - The Blower's Daughter

And so it is

Just like you said it would be

Life goes easy on me

Most of the time

(男生)

是,就是這樣

像你說的

我大部分的人生平順無奇

And so it is

The shorter story

No love, no glory

No hero in her sky

是,同樣的

在她短短的人生故事中

沒有英雄

沒有榮耀

沒有愛

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes…

但我沒有辦法不看著你

沒辦法不看著你

沒辦法。。。

And so it is

Just like you said it should be

We'll both forget the breeze

Most of the time

是,就是這樣

像妳說的

大部分的日子

我們不會發現有風輕輕地吹著

And so it is

The colder water

The blower's daughter

The pupil in denial

是的

我變得如水般冷漠

變得會說謊

變得拒絕承諾任何事

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off of you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes off you

I can't take my eyes…

但我遇到了你,我無法將視線從你身上移開

我無法不看著你

無法。。。。

Did I say that I loathe you?

Did I say that I want to

Leave it all behind?

(女生)我有說過我恨你嗎?

我有說過我要忘了這一切嗎?

I can't take my mind off of you

I can't take my mind off you

I can't take my mind off of you

I can't take my mind off you

I can't take my mind off you

I can't take my mind…

My mind…my mind…

'Til I find somebody new

(男生)

我沒有辦法不想你

沒有辦法不想你

我想你

是否只能到遇到另一個新的你

才能停止想你


以上為不負責任的翻譯,難得我要再次念一下:這首不好翻,有許多兩面的意思,歌詞與電影相疊,而我只有10分鐘理解。現下只剩6分鐘,七夕就要過了,得停筆了。

國境之南,2017情人節快樂。
