Passenger – When We Were Young

We used to never say never
我們不曾說不可能
used to think we live forever
以為我們能一輩子活著
flying free beneath the sun
在艷陽下自由飛著
days go running and hiding
你追我跑逍遙玩樂
the weeks are going slippy and sliding
時光匆匆流逝了
years leave quicker everytime they come
年復一年如此過著
Remember when we were young
還記得年輕時

Look back to the best days
那些美好的日子
collecting all yesterdays
細數著一日又一日
as they built up one by one
回憶堆疊一個又一個
How we beg and we borrow
我們如此努力活著
say we do it tomorrow
推託說著我們明天會完成
but tomorrow never seems to come
但明天似乎遠在天邊

 

We used to never say never
我們不曾說不可能
used to think we live forever
以為我們能一輩子活著
flying free beneath the sun
在艷陽下自由飛著
days go running and hiding
你追我跑逍遙玩樂
the weeks are going slippy and sliding
時光匆匆流逝了
years leave quicker everytime they come
年復一年如此過著
Remember when we were young
還記得年輕時

And we were boys on the beach
我們曾是海灘男孩
everything was in reach
每件事都難不倒我們
I know it’s hard to remember
我知道想起來很心痛
and all had the years they vanish
但歲月就此流過
I always wanted to learn Spanish
我一只想學西班牙語
and travel round South-America
到南美洲旅行

We used to never say never
我們不曾說不可能
used to think we live forever
以為我們能一輩子活著
flying free beneath the sun
在艷陽下自由飛著
days go running and hiding
你追我跑逍遙玩樂
the weeks are going slippy and sliding
時光匆匆流逝了
years leave quicker everytime they come
年復一年如此過著
Remember when we were young
還記得年輕時

 

 Passenger When We Were Young

Passenger When We Were Young

 

Passenger 在 2016 年 9 月發行的專集 Young As The Morning Old As The Sea (年少如晨,蒼老如海)裡面有不少好歌,有很多首我甚至覺得不輸給他最紅的 Let her go。在充滿磁性的嗓音中又透露了點無奈與滄桑。

When We Were Young 這首歌大家或許覺得歌名有點熟悉,大概是因為 Adele 也有一首 When We Were Young,兩首都是很棒的歌曲,但我個人更喜歡 Passenger 的風格。這首歌讓我想起他在前一張專輯中的 All The Little Lights ,表達著對於時光流逝的無可奈何。人類在時間洪流下如此渺小,即使過去從經多麽閃耀、多麽瘋狂,數十年過去後,回首望去也只不過係如沙粒般無所謂,過去的悲歡也顯得微不足道。記得有一句話是這麼說的 “Les humains disent que le temps passe. Le temps dit que les humains passent”(人們說時光流逝,但時間說是人們不斷流逝。)或許不是我們留不住時間,而是我們不斷在時光中消逝呢。
