Elena Tonra -Blue and Grey 藍與灰的悲歌

 

Elena Tonra -Blue and Grey

One day there was a girl
從前有個女孩
who cried tears of pearls
哭泣時淚滴如珠
her eyes were blue and green
藍綠色的雙眸
like none I’ve ever seen
我從來沒見過

She met a man that night
那天她遇見的一個男人
who filled her with delight
豐富了她的人生
and he spoke in poetry and rhyme
他的話語如同詩文
and she loved him in no time
令她即刻墜入愛河

Then he changed and then soon he became
但轉眼他變了個人
jealous of her beauty and fame
不再樂見她的美貌與名聲
so he locked her away
將她隔離於世
and he forced her to play
要她成日彈奏
songs that were blue and songs that were grey
藍色與灰色的抑鬱悲歌

One day this lonely girl had had enough of her world
她再也受不了一個人的世界
so she climbed to the top of the tallest tower
於是她爬上高塔
and stood there for way over an hour
在那兒待了一個鐘頭
until she decided she’d jump
直到她下定決心 往下跳

So she jumped with a very loud thump
於是砰地一聲她往下跳
And all of the neighbours they came out and cried
鄰居們哭著大叫
when they discovered that this poor girl had died
看著那女孩沒了心跳
and the boy he just stood there and gasped
而他 在一旁嘆息
at this beauty asleep on the grass
看著那美人沈睡在草地
and her eyes were like none he had seen
他從沒見過那樣的眼睛
except for the girls in his dreams
只屬於夢中的神秘

Then he changed and then soon he became
轉眼他變了個人
depressed and very very strange
變得古怪又憂鬱
He’d lock himself away for days and days
他將自己隔絕於世 一日又一日
and play songs that were blue and play songs that were grey
彈奏著 藍色與灰色的抑鬱悲歌
he’d play songs that reminded him of that day
彈奏著 牽起那天回憶的悲歌

One day there was a girl
從前有個女孩
who fell in love with a boy in a different world
愛上了另一個世界的男人
and she speaks to him at night
夜晚她向他傾訴著
only in a certain light
在微光中
She wore white and he wore black
她身著白衣 而他著黑衣
and they were like a perfect match
如通完美的一對

Though one was dead and one was alive
即使他在人間 而她在另一個世界
through many years their love did survive
年復一年 他們的愛活了下來
till time faded and soon they became both exactly the same
年復一年 他們終於在同一個世界相見
And both are floating
在空中漂浮著
In the sky singing their own lullaby
唱著屬於他們的歌
a song that reminds them of a past time
那首 牽起回憶的悲歌
a song that reminds them of a past day
那首 牽起回憶的悲歌
(a song that is blue a song that is grey)
那首 藍色與灰色的抑鬱悲歌

Elena Tonra 是 Daughter 樂團的主唱,關於這首 Blue and Grey 的來歷其實不是很請楚,或許是在樂團成立前的個人創作,訴說一個既悲傷又幸福的故事。

故事的女主角遇到了自己心愛的人,為他傾倒,但或許愛情從來就沒有如此順利。她的美貌、她的好,既是令那男人愛上他的原因,也是令他怨恨她的原因。或許男主角無法接受,與這世界一起分享自己心愛女人的美好,他寧願將她鎖在高塔中,寧願她孤寂也不要這世界擁有她。而終究是沒有人喜歡孤獨的,她不願違背他的要求,只能以死來尋求解脫。

故事的結局,男人也品嚐了與世隔絕的孤獨,並隨著時間流動,一步步邁向與女孩更貼近的世界。他們深愛著對方,無庸置疑,這份愛超越了時間、超越了生死,直到兩人同在另一個世界,這份愛一直都沒有消逝。

或許,如果你深愛著某個人,不該用愛來一步步掐死她、令她窒息。畢竟,誰能保證,每一份愛都如同這首歌裡的一樣,如此堅韌,能夠超越生死呢?
