Avenged Sevenfold – Dear God

Avenged Sevenfold – Dear God [Official Music Video]

 

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
一條寂寞的長路 又跨過一條寒冷的州界
Miles away from those I love, purpose hard to find
與愛人分隔千里 我迷失了方向
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
回想起你所說過的話語
Can’t help but wish that I was there
只希望能在你身旁
Back where I’d love to be, oh yeah
回到我們相愛的地方

Dear God, the only thing I ask of you
親愛的上帝 我對你唯一的請求
Is to hold her when I’m not around, when I’m much too far away
是當我不在她身旁 請看顧她別讓她受傷
We all need that person who can be true to you
我們都需要一個能真心相待的人
But I left her when I found her and now I wish I’d stayed
但我得到她後卻又拋下她 真希望我從沒離開她
Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired, I’m missing you again oh no
寂寞與疲倦擊垮了我 又開始想念起她
Once again
只希望能再重來一次……

There’s nothing here for me on this barren road
荒涼的路上什麼也沒有
There’s no one here while the city sleeps
城市沉睡之時  孤單一人只有我
And all the shops are closed
商店也一間間熄燈
Can’t help but think of the times I’ve had with you
只能回想與你一起的那段時光
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah
只剩照片和回憶伴我度過夜晚

Dear God, the only thing I ask of you
親愛的上帝 我對你唯一的請求
Is to hold her when I’m not around, when I’m much too far away
是當我不在她身旁 請看顧她別讓她受傷
We all need that person who can be true to you
我們都需要一個能真心相待的人
But I left her when I found her and now I wish I’d stayed
但我得到她後卻又拋下她 真希望我從沒離開她
Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired, I’m missing you again oh no
寂寞與疲倦擊垮了我 又開始想念起她
Once again
只希望能再重來一次……

Some search, never finding a way
有人努力尋找 卻什麼也找不到
Before long, they waste away
不久他們不再在乎
I found you, something told me to stay
我找到了你 上天告訴我別輕易放手
I gave in, to selfish ways
我卻自私地拋下你
And how I miss someone to hold
此刻多希望有人能擁抱
When hope begins to fade
但希望之光卻開始黯淡

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
一條寂寞的長路 又跨過一條寒冷的州界
Miles away from those I love, purpose hard to find
與愛人分隔千里 我迷失了方向

Dear God, the only thing I ask of you
親愛的上帝 我對你唯一的請求
Is to hold her when I’m not around, when I’m much too far away
是當我不在她身旁 請看顧她別讓她受傷
We all need that person who can be true to you
我們都需要一個能真心相待的人
But I left her when I found her and now I wish I’d stayed
但我得到她後卻又拋下她 真希望我從沒離開她
Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired, I’m missing you again oh no
寂寞與疲倦擊垮了我 又開始想念起她
Once again
只希望能再重來一次……

 

Avenged Sevenfold 2

 

Avenged Sevenfold (七級煉獄 ) 是來自美國加州的重金屬樂團,這一首 Dear God 可以算是極少數曲風稍微溫和一點的深情情歌,和專輯中的其他搖滾、金屬很不一樣。

總覺得悲傷的情歌很容易引起共鳴。徹底心碎或是愛得死去活來的情歌容易令人感到濫情,不過像這種關於後悔、關於分手後還希望對方好好過的情歌,反而更能讓人喜歡。我想,這首歌之所以感人,是因為主角並不說自己多愛對方,而是透過歌名 Dear God 及歌詞中的禱告,來讓聽眾感覺到對對方的關照。即使當初是因為自己的自私或一時衝動而分手,此刻卻希望,即使在她身旁的不是自己,也要神確保她的安危,如果自己已經無法挽回,起碼要一個偉大的力量去陪伴著愛人,別讓她像自己一樣孤單徬徨。

我覺得是一首會越聽越悲傷,但同時又覺得十分溫情的歌曲,有點暗自希望 Avenged Sevenfold 能再偶爾換換路線走這類的歌XD
