魯米尼爾樂團 The Lumineers – Dead Sea 死海

The Lumineers – The Dead Sea

 

The Lumineers – Dead Sea

[Verse 1]
I stood alone upon the platform in vain
我無奈地站在月台上
The Puerto Ricans
那些波多黎各人
They were playing their salsa in the rain
他們在雨中舞著騷莎
With open doors and manual locks
手動門還敞開著
In fast food parking lots
他們就在速食店停車場跳著舞
I headed west I was a man on the move
我一生飄泊向西
New York it lied to me, I needed the truth
但紐約辜負了我,我不想再被矇騙
Oh I need somebody, I needed someone I could trust
我需要個能信任的人
And I don’t gamble, but if I did
我並非一個賭徒,但若真要賭
I would bet on us
我會將賭注放在你我身上

[Chorus]
Like the Dead Sea, you told me I was like the Dead Sea
你說過我就像死海一樣
You’ll never sink when you are with me
你與我同在,就絕不會下沉
Oh lord, like the Dead Sea
老天,我就像死海一樣
Woah, I’m like the Dead Sea
我就像死海一樣
The finest words you ever said to me
這是你對我說過最甜美的話
Honey can’t you see
寶貝你不懂嗎?
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
我生來就注定要當你的死海

[Verse 2]
You told me you were good at runnin’ away
你說過你總是逃避現實
Domestic life, it never suited you like a suitcase
穩定的生活不適合你
You left with just the clothes on your back
你只剩下身上這套衣服
They took the rest when you took a nap
你流浪街頭時,丟了身外之物
Yes there are times we live for somebody else
是啊,有時我們確實是為了他人而活
Your father died and you decided to live it for yourself, you felt
你父親離世後,你決心為你自己活
You just felt it was time
你知道時候到了
And I’m glad, cause you with cats
我很慶幸,因為養著貓的穩定生活
That’s just not right
實在不適合你

[Chorus]
Like the Dead Sea, you told me I was like the Dead Sea
你說過我就像死海一樣
You’ll never sink when you are with me
你與我同在,就絕不會下沉
Oh lord, like the Dead Sea
老天,我就像死海一樣
Woah, I’m like the Dead Sea
我就像死海一樣
The finest words you ever said to me
這是你對我說過最甜美的話
Honey can’t you see
寶貝你不懂嗎?
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
我生來就注定要當你的死海

[Bridge]
I’ve been down, I been defeated
我也有過失落崩潰之時
You’re the message, I will heed it
而你是我得留心的啟示
Would you stay with me
你可願意與我同在?
Would you stay the night, oh
與我共度夜晚?

[Chorus]
Like the Dead Sea, you told me I was like the Dead Sea
你說過我就像死海一樣
You’ll never sink when you are with me
你與我同在,就絕不會下沉
Oh lord, like the Dead Sea
老天,我就像死海一樣
Woah, I’m like the Dead Sea
我就像死海一樣
The finest words you ever said to me
這是你對我說過最甜美的話
Honey can’t you see
寶貝你不懂嗎?
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
我生來就注定要當你的死海

 

The Lumineers

The Lumineers

 

這首歌以密度極高的死海作為比喻,人在死海中不會下沉。對她來說,他就好像她生命中的死海,讓他在這個紛亂而冷酷的世界上,不受各種打擊的影響,不會墜落谷底,永遠保持著浮上岸的勇氣與毅力。

第一段是男主角看著四處為家的波多黎各人,狂歡跳舞,他們的人生沒有包袱,只有流浪。接著,他想到自己也曾有個美國夢,夢想著到達紐約去追逐夢想、過著穩定的生活。然而,New York it lied to me,他發現紐約並非幻想中那般美妙,他開始質疑自己以前所相信的一切,到底何為真,何為假。不過此刻充滿懷疑的他,卻對自己的感情毫不懷疑,堅信著兩人是彼此的死海,不會讓對方沉入海底。

到了Verse 2,開始講述女主角的身世,她原是個有著包袱的人,為了身邊的人而活,但在父親去世後,開始領悟到這不是她所嚮往的生活,她知道是時候追求自己想要的,而他也認同,因為兩人都知道,有著彼此作為自己的死海,即使流浪、即使飄泊,也永遠不會下沉。
