雪警乐团 Snow Patrol – Those Distant Bells 远方的钟响

Snow Patrol - Those Distant Bells

Snow Patrol – Those Distant Bells

The car crunches gravel
汽车嘎嘎碾压碎石
And the wind licks at you
寒风袭上你的双颊
This dark spell you’re under
你像被诅咒了一般
Has you dumbstruck by the gate
看着敞开的大门 惊讶得说不出话来

And it hurts every muscle
Just to walk back to the house
那曾经温暖的家园 现在却充满痛苦
Now this home that you both made
你俩共组的家园
It looks haunted from the yard
何时变得寒冷黯淡

You can hear those distant bells
你可听见教堂钟声响起
And you know they’ll never leave
在你耳边不曾停止
It’s like your church is crying out
阵阵钟声像在哭泣
Like the wolf calls to her young
像狼嚎般惨烈凄厉

And the dark never enters
黑暗不曾入侵
But it also never leaves
但也从未离去
And this spark that he gave you
曾在你们之间闪耀的火花
Is just an ember all but out
现在只剩下余烬

If he’d one eye on the exit
他望向远方想要出走
Oh you never would have known
但你却毫无所知
Until he drove off in the darkness
直到他离你而去
Like some slowly fading song
如同一首渐渐淡去的歌

You can hear those distant bells
你可听见教堂钟声响起
And you know they’ll never leave
在你耳边不曾停止
It’s like your church is crying out
阵阵钟声像在哭泣
Like the wolf calls to her young
像狼嚎般惨烈凄厉

这首歌传达的氛围和 Radiohead 的 Pyramid Song 有点像,是一种平静中隐隐的痛,不过心碎的感觉比较强烈一点,仿佛一切都发生过了,事过境迁,自己既没有能力改变什么,也没有心思去这么做,只能任凭生活这样糟糕下去。

歌词内容有点难理解,不过从 bell 和 church 大概可以知道指涉的是分裂破碎的婚姻。

一段感情中,最令人害怕的,并不是争执,而是沉默,转而变成难以察觉的渐行渐远,最后,直到双方已经相对无言,才知道再补救也没有用,又或许再也没有补救的必要了吧!我想,最难以接受的分手理由,是”感情淡了”,当初两人在一起时,曾激起多么闪耀壮丽的火花?当初可是曾经抱着要相守一生的心愿,怎么可以因时间的冲刷而让”感情淡了”成为分开的理由?当然,若真的淡了,也没有理由勉强留住对方,只不过,这将会是最悲伤的分手理由了。并不是因外力介入,并不是内部纷争,只是,对你没感觉了,火,熄了,罢了。

在那火花闪耀之际,谁会预料到一地余烬,奄奄一息呢?
