鲁米尼尔乐团 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
我无奈地站在月台上
The Puerto Ricans
那些波多黎各人
They were playing their salsa in the rain
他们在雨中舞著骚莎
With open doors and manual locks
手动门还敞开着
In fast food parking lots
他们就在速食店停车场跳着舞
I headed west I was a man on the move
我一生飘泊向西
New York it lied to me, I needed the truth
但纽约辜负了我,我不想再被蒙骗
Oh I need somebody, I needed someone I could trust
我需要个能信任的人
And I don’t gamble, but if I did
我并非一个赌徒,但若真要赌
I would bet on us
我会将赌注放在你我身上

[Chorus]
Like the Dead Sea, you told me I was like the Dead Sea
你说过我就像死海一样
You’ll never sink when you are with me
你与我同在,就绝不会下沉
Oh lord, like the Dead Sea
老天,我就像死海一样
Woah, I’m like the Dead Sea
我就像死海一样
The finest words you ever said to me
这是你对我说过最甜美的话
Honey can’t you see
宝贝你不懂吗?
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
我生来就注定要当你的死海

[Verse 2]
You told me you were good at runnin’ away
你说过你总是逃避现实
Domestic life, it never suited you like a suitcase
稳定的生活不适合你
You left with just the clothes on your back
你只剩下身上这套衣服
They took the rest when you took a nap
你流浪街头时,丢了身外之物
Yes there are times we live for somebody else
是啊,有时我们确实是为了他人而活
Your father died and you decided to live it for yourself, you felt
你父亲离世后,你决心为你自己活
You just felt it was time
你知道时候到了
And I’m glad, cause you with cats
我很庆幸,因为养著猫的稳定生活
That’s just not right
实在不适合你

[Chorus]
Like the Dead Sea, you told me I was like the Dead Sea
你说过我就像死海一样
You’ll never sink when you are with me
你与我同在,就绝不会下沉
Oh lord, like the Dead Sea
老天,我就像死海一样
Woah, I’m like the Dead Sea
我就像死海一样
The finest words you ever said to me
这是你对我说过最甜美的话
Honey can’t you see
宝贝你不懂吗?
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
我生来就注定要当你的死海

[Bridge]
I’ve been down, I been defeated
我也有过失落崩溃之时
You’re the message, I will heed it
而你是我得留心的启示
Would you stay with me
你可愿意与我同在?
Would you stay the night, oh
与我共度夜晚?

[Chorus]
Like the Dead Sea, you told me I was like the Dead Sea
你说过我就像死海一样
You’ll never sink when you are with me
你与我同在,就绝不会下沉
Oh lord, like the Dead Sea
老天,我就像死海一样
Woah, I’m like the Dead Sea
我就像死海一样
The finest words you ever said to me
这是你对我说过最甜美的话
Honey can’t you see
宝贝你不懂吗?
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
我生来就注定要当你的死海

 

The Lumineers

The Lumineers

 

这首歌以密度极高的死海作为比喻,人在死海中不会下沉。对她来说,他就好像她生命中的死海,让他在这个纷乱而冷酷的世界上,不受各种打击的影响,不会坠落谷底,永远保持着浮上岸的勇气与毅力。

第一段是男主角看着四处为家的波多黎各人,狂欢跳舞,他们的人生没有包袱,只有流浪。接着,他想到自己也曾有个美国梦,梦想着到达纽约去追逐梦想、过著稳定的生活。然而,New York it lied to me,他发现纽约并非幻想中那般美妙,他开始质疑自己以前所相信的一切,到底何为真,何为假。不过此刻充满怀疑的他,却对自己的感情毫不怀疑,坚信着两人是彼此的死海,不会让对方沉入海底。

到了Verse 2,开始讲述女主角的身世,她原是个有着包袱的人,为了身边的人而活,但在父亲去世后,开始领悟到这不是她所向往的生活,她知道是时候追求自己想要的,而他也认同,因为两人都知道,有着彼此作为自己的死海,即使流浪、即使飘泊,也永远不会下沉。
