Apocalypse – Cigarettes After Sex

 

Cigarettes After Sex – Apocalypse

You leapt from crumbling bridges watching cityscapes turn to dust
你越過粉碎的橋樑,眼看城市轉眼成灰
Filming helicopters crashing in the ocean from way above
遠方高空直升機墜入海中

Got the music in you baby,
你我有著共鳴
Tell me why
告訴我原因
Got the music in you baby,
你我有著共鳴
Tell me why
告訴我原因
You’ve been locked in here forever & you just can’t say goodbye
你被困於此,久久無法脫身

Kisses on the foreheads of the lovers wrapped in your arms
戀人在你額頭上一吻,你便緊握不放
You’ve been hiding them in hollowed out pianos left in the dark…
你躲藏在空洞的鋼琴中,不見光亮

Your lips,
你的唇
My lips,
我的唇
Apocalypse
這就是世界末日

Go and sneak us through the rivers,
趁災難來襲前趕緊渡河
Flood is rising up on your knees
洪水就要淹至膝蓋
Oh please…
拜託
Come out & haunt me
現身跟我走吧
I know you want me
我知道你對我的渴望
Come out & haunt me
現身跟我走吧

Sharing all your secrets with each other since you were kids
我倆自幼便了解彼此的秘密
Sleeping soundly with the locket that she gave you clutched in your fist…
睡夢中,你仍緊握著她給你的墜子

When you’re all alone
當你孤身一人
I will reach for you
我會伸出援手
When you’re feeling low
當你墜入谷底
I will be there too
我會與你相依

Cigarettes After Sex 的這首 Apocalypse( 世界末日),宛如有迷幻的魔咒一般,聽著便難以自拔,有種墜入無底深淵的感觸,但同時,內心的苦痛卻被主唱 Greg Gonzalez 的聲音所撫平。

Apocalypse 這首歌訴說的是一對相互喜歡,卻無法成為戀人的朋友。敘事者愛戀著童年的好友,對方的心卻另有所屬。然而,在對方感情破碎之際,卻又無法脫離那份關係,久久為情所苦,因此,最終仍然未能與敘事者相愛。

他深知,若與好友成為戀人關係,必定會造成末日般的災難,或許再也無法挽救,但即便如此,他仍願放手一搏,“Come out & haunt me/ I know you want me” ,除了是希望對方走出情傷之外,用 haunt (糾纏、縈繞於心)這個字更表達了即便知道結果未必美好,仍想把握住這段情的意願。
