Cigarettes After Sex – Keep On Loving You

You should have seen by the look in my eyes
透過我的眼神,你已經明瞭
That there was something missing
似乎少了些什麼
You should have known by the tone of my voice
透過我的口吻,你也應該猜到
But you didn’t listen
但你卻不願傾聽
You play dead, but you never bled
你假裝斃命,卻沒流半滴血跡
Instead you lie still in the grass all coiled up and hissing
只是蜷曲在草地上,發出嘶嘶叫鳴

And I know all about those men
這些男人我一清二楚
Still I don’t remember
但我卻不記得
Because it was us baby way before them
因我你我之間已是太久以前
And we’re still together
那時我們仍形影不離
And I meant every word I said
當時我句句真摯
When I said that I love you I meant that I love you forever
我對你的告白,是真切的永恆

And I’m gonna keep on loving you
如今我也會繼續愛下去
Because it’s the only thing I wanna do
因為這是我唯一所願
I don’t wanna sleep
我不願昏睡
I just wanna keep on loving you
只想繼續愛你

And I meant every word I said
當時我句句真摯
When I said that I love you I meant that I love you forever
我對你的告白,是真切的永恆

And I’m gonna keep on loving you
如今我也會繼續愛下去
Because it’s the only thing I wanna do
因為這是我唯一所願
I don’t wanna sleep
我不願昏睡
I just wanna keep on loving you
只想繼續愛你

 

Cigarettes After Sex

Cigarettes After Sex

 

聽到 Cigarettes After Sex 的歌,應該很難不被主唱 Greg Gonzalez 的聲音所吸引,深沉而具有磁性的嗓音,似乎本身就訴說著故事。這個來自美國德州的樂團名為「事後菸」,確實是一種很貼切的描述,曲風帶點迷幻而慵懶,彷彿在炎炎夏日完事後,躺在床上品嚐著心中無法彌補的空洞。

這首歌一開始訴說自己的另一半是個故作不明白的人,明知感情中有所缺陷,卻因為害怕受傷、害怕面對真相,而選擇視而不見。其中 lie still in the grass all coiled up and hissing 這一句明顯是一條蛇的形象,對方採取防衛姿態,不願被攻破自己的心防,但這些,敘事者都看在眼裡。雖然如此,他仍然愛著對方,他不忘初衷,想起最初的告白,那時是抱著怎樣的真誠心意,如今也無所動搖。他明白一切已不如從前,但他仍願意以同樣的愛去維繫這段感情。

Cigarettes After Sex 的音樂如同餘煙裊裊,聽了確實會上癮,但點輕柔、帶點淡淡的無奈與憂傷,之後會再介紹更多他們的歌曲給大家,敬請期待。
