A Fine Frenzy-Almost Lover 無緣的戀人

A Fine Frenzy – Almost Lover

A Fine Frenzy-Almost Lover

Your fingertips across my skin
你的指尖拂過我的肌膚
The palm trees swaying in the wind
棕櫚樹在風中搖曳
Images
腦中閃過
You sang me Spanish lullabies
你為我唱的西班牙搖籃曲
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
以及你眼中甜甜的憂傷
Clever trick
我搞不懂
Well, I never want to see you unhappy
我從未想要傷你的心
I thought you’d want the same for me
我想你也希望我快樂

Goodbye, my almost lover
再見了 我無緣的戀人
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
再見了 我未完成的美夢
I’m trying not to think about you
我努力不想起你
Can’t you just let me be?
你怎麼卻不放過我呢

So long, my luckless romance
再見了 我不完美的戀情
My back is turned on you
就此離你而去
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
早該知道你會讓我心碎
Almost lovers always do
無緣戀人總是如此

We walked along a crowded street
記得我們走在喧擾的街道
You took my hand and danced with me
你牽起我的手 與我共舞
Images
我腦中閃過
And when you left, you kissed my lips
你離去時輕吻了我
You told me you would never, ever forget, no
說你永遠不會忘了我
These images
這些回憶啊
Well, I never want to see you unhappy
我從未想要傷你的心
I thought you’d want the same for me
我以為你也希望我快樂

Goodbye, my almost lover
再見了 我無緣的戀人
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
再見了 我未完成的美夢
I’m trying not to think about you
我努力不想起你
Can’t you just let me be?
你怎麼卻不放過我呢

So long, my luckless romance
再見了 我不完美的戀情
My back is turned on you
就此離你而去
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
早該知道你會讓我心碎
Almost lovers always do
無緣戀人總是如此

 

I cannot go to the ocean
我再也不願去海邊
I cannot drive the streets at night
不願在深夜街頭遊蕩
I cannot wake up in the morning
不願早上醒來時
Without you on my mind
發現你不在身邊
So you’re gone and I’m haunted
你走了我卻還留念著你
And I bet you are just fine
你想必過得好好的
Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out of my life?
我難道就不值得你留戀掛心

 

Goodbye, my almost lover
再見了 我無緣的戀人
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
再見了 我未完成的美夢
I’m trying not to think about you
我努力不想起你
Can’t you just let me be?
你怎麼卻不放過我呢

So long, my luckless romance
再見了 我不完美的戀情
My back is turned on you
就此離你而去
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
早該知道你會讓我心碎
Almost lovers always do
無緣戀人總是如此

 

 

A Fine Frenzy

A Fine Frenzy – Almost Lover

 

A Fine Frenzy 原名 Alison Sudol,是美國創作歌手, Almost Lover 這首歌是她 18 歲時的作品,收錄在她的第一張專輯 One Cell In The Sea,受到廣大迴響。

Almost Lover 這首歌細膩地描寫了一段未能圓滿的感情。或許你曾有過類似的經驗,一個人對你深情的眼神、充滿關愛的話語、甜蜜的舉動、突如其來的邀約,讓你以為你們之間不只是朋友。你已墜入情網,卻發現一切只是自作多情,你們之間並沒有所謂愛情,只是你一廂情願地相信。

歌曲流露著淡淡的哀傷,像是被一個不曾在一起的戀人給甩了一樣。我想,這首歌最令人心痛的歌詞是 “Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out of my life”,若你為他的離去而心碎不已,他卻處之泰然,好像他能夠輕易走出你的生活,毫不留情,你不禁自問,難道我如此不值得你留念?

或許痛就痛在他並不是真心想傷你,而是,你對他而言,真的,沒什麼而已。
