拉娜德芮 Lana Del Rey : Old Money 愛,已成過往

Lana Del Rey – Old Money [Ultraviolence Album]

Blue hydrangea, cold cash, divine,
繡球花簇,舊日鈔票,價值永恆
Cashmere, cologne and white sunshine.
羊毛布料,古龍水香,日光閃耀
Red racing cars, sunset in vine,
人車川流於藤蔓與落日間
The kids were young and pretty.
美好青春歷歷在目
Where have you been? Where did you go?
但你在何處?
Those summer nights seem long ago,
與你共度的夏夜,已成為過去
And so is the girl you used to call,
而你對她的思念,也成了回憶
The Queen of New York City.
你可記得,當年紐約的繁華?
But if you send for me you know I’ll come,
你可知道,只要一封信,我就會出現
And if you call for me you know I’ll run.
只要一通電話,我便會奔向你
I’ll run to you, I’ll run to you, I’ll run, run, run.
我會找到你,不顧一切
I’ll come to you, I’ll come to you, I’ll come, come, come.
我會找到你,不顧一切
The power of youth is on my mind,
我的內心,仍熱情洋溢
Sunsets, small town, I’m out of time.
日落晚霞,小鎮風光,我就如同褪色的風景
Will you still love me when I shine,
若我青春如往日,你是否會依然愛我?
From words but not from beauty?
若我美貌不再,你可看得見我內心的春光?
My father’s love was always strong,
我的父親仍保有真愛
My mother’s glamor lives on and on,
我的母親美麗如昔
Yet still inside I felt alone,
但我的內心孤獨不已
For reasons unknown to me.
莫名的空洞吞噬我心
But if you send for me you know I’ll come,
只要你一封信,我就會出現
And if you call for me you know I’ll run.
只要你一通電話,我就會奔向你
I’ll run to you, I’ll run to you, I’ll run, run, run.
我會找到你,不顧一切
I’ll come to you, I’ll come to you, I’ll come, come,come.
我會找到你,不顧一切
And if you call I’ll run, run, run,
不顧一切找到你
If you change your mind I’ll come, come, come.
只要你回心轉意,我便立刻奔向你
Blue hydrangea, cold cash, divine,
繡球花簇,舊日鈔票,價值永恆
Cashmere, cologne and white sunshine.
羊毛布料,古龍水香,日光閃耀
Red racing cars, sunset in vine,
人車川流於藤蔓與落日間
The kids were young and pretty.
美好青春,歷歷在目

Lana Del Rey

 

 

又是一首只有Lana Del Rey獨有風格的音樂,在慵懶頹廢的聲音中,透露出濃濃的無奈之情。歌名Old Money乍看之下無法想像歌詞會是怎樣的內容,但認真聽了幾片之後,馬上就開始欣賞這巧妙的比喻。

"Old Money"老舊的錢,或許是已經無法通用的鈔票或硬幣,總之是一種曾經人人都想擁有,但因為時間流逝而喪失價值的東西。在歌詞中,前幾句就出現了幾個意象:花、古龍水、羊毛(意味時尚流行)、舊鈔,這些東西看似高雅又價值不斐,但卻都是虛華一時的,時間一久,便遭人唾棄。敘述者隱約表達自己就像這老舊的鈔票一樣,曾經被愛人當作寶物一樣呵護,但經過歲月的摧殘,卻變得像落日餘暉一樣,像幅褪了色的小鎮水彩畫,不再受人憐愛,彷彿隨時可以丟棄。

然而,即使自己對對方來說已經如過時的鈔票一樣無用,但自己卻不顧一切地追尋著對方。”The kids were young and pretty”是一個表達幸福的意象。當自己回想起過去兩人在一起的時光是多麼美好,便不顧自己已被拋棄的事實,只要能回到過去,便什麼也不在乎。或許因為這幸福的回憶,對自己來說才是比鈔票更永恆,更有價值的東西吧!
