今年讓所有情歌黯然的Goodbye my lover


好聽的情歌年年有,但今年到目前為止,這一首"Goodbye my lover"卻讓我前半年所有聽的情歌,全都黯然失色....

這是「上尉詩人」詹姆斯布朗特( James blunt)去年在英國發的首張專輯「不安於室」,一發片就坐上專輯榜冠軍,最誇張的是,專輯裡兩首單曲儼然成為全英國民情歌。「美麗的你」 (You’re beautiful)是婚禮指定曲,「Goodbye my lover」成為喪禮必備曲。

他有辨識度極高的唱腔,似乎溢注著更深的情感,每回聆聽都教人感動莫名...

因為他有軍人家庭的背景,上尉退伍的身分讓他獲得「上尉詩人」的稱號。
「goodbye my lover」整首歌是詹姆仕清唱和簡單的鋼琴伴奏,之後才偶爾有幾個電子聲與吉他點綴。不斷對愛人與朋友唱著離別之意,曾經是那麼重要的生命伴侶呀,總是要離去的。

James Blunt - Goodbye My Lover Lyrics

Did I disappoint you or let you down?

Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?

‘Cause I saw the end before we’d begun,

Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.

So I took what’s mine by eternal right.

Took your soul out into the night.

It may be over but it won’t stop there,

I am here for you if you’d only care.

You touched my heart you touched my soul.

You changed my life and all my goals.

And love is blind and that I knew when,

My heart was blinded by you.

I’ve kissed your lips and held your head.

Shared your dreams and shared your bed.

I know you well, I know your smell.

I’ve been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer but when I wake,

You can’t break my spirit - it’s my dreams you take.

And as you move on, remember me,

Remember us and all we used to be

I’ve seen you cry, I’ve seen you smile.

I’ve watched you sleeping for a while.

I’d be the father of your child.

I’d spend a lifetime with you.

I know your fears and you know mine.

We’ve had our doubts but now we’re fine,

And I love you, I swear that’s true.

I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.

In mine when I’m asleep.

And I will bear my soul in time,

When I’m kneeling at your feet.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

I’m so hollow, baby, I’m so hollow.

I’m so, I’m so, I’m so hollow.

I cannot live without you.
