【歐米設計_歐米賞】_Tears & Rain

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Isl0CCOyGt0

近日看一電影,其採用了 James blunt 的 Tears & Rain 作為插曲(當中歌詞有部份也是 James blunt 親自編寫),以短短3分鐘的歌曲,卻能細緻詮釋全片主角的心境與人生轉變的緣由。

片中講述一位追求榮譽,年幼便以加入特種部隊為唯一選擇的職業軍人,於經歷幾次戰爭,親眼目睹許多百姓被殺,身在現塲的他,卻無法給予他們任何幫助….,一幕幕家破人亡的慘境與存活的人的空洞眼神,心裡百般無助…,從而離開從軍生涯,並思索自己人生方向。最後,因緣際會下得以進入校園教職,而面對許多來自貧困家境、憤世叛逆的學生,他們除了無心課業,大多也和家人不和。充滿罪惡和失落的他,嘗試用自己的愛與包容教化學子,並把於戰爭中看到的生離死別告知,以修復他們與家人關係….,希望從而能夠給予自己一個心靈撫平和彌補的機會….。

James blunt 有許多弦律優美的歌曲,當中也有講述戰爭相關的故事,不過以描述人生走過的歷程中,做了許多錯誤決定或有違人性價值觀的事,而希望能有重新改過的機會,則正是 Tears & Rain 歌曲所要表達。

How I wish I could surrender my soul(我多麼希望交出我的靈魂)

Shed the clothes that become my skin(脫掉那件已經變成我肌膚的外衣)

See the liar that burns within my needing(看看為了滿足欲望說謊而飽受煎熬的我)

How I wish I’d chosen darkness from cold(我是多麼希望能無視冷酷)

How I wish I had screamed out loud(我多希望放聲吶喊)

Instead I’ve found no meaning(卻發現一切是徒然)

I guess it’s time I run(我猜該是我逃亡的時候了)
Far far away(逃得遠遠的)

Find comfort in pain(從痛苦中找到一些安慰)

All pleasure’s the same(所有的盡興都是為了遠離煩惱)

It just keeps me from trouble

Hides my true shape like Dorian Gray(如格雷,隱藏自己真實樣貌)

I’ve heard what they say but I’m not here for trouble

It’s more than just words it’s just tears and rain(非千言萬語,唯有雨水和淚水能表達)

How I wish I could walk through the doors of my mind(我多希望能跨出心門)

Hold memory close at hand(緊握回憶,好幫助我了解這些所走過的路)

Help me understand the years

How I wish I could choose between Heaven and Hell(我多麼希望能在善惡之間作選擇)

How I wish I would save my soul(我多麼希望能救贖自己靈魂)

I’m so cold from fear(對恐懼感到寒冷)

I guess it’s time I run

Far far away

Find comfort in pain

All pleasure’s the same

It just keeps me from trouble

Hides my true shape like Dorian Gray

I’ve heard what they say but I’m not here for trouble

Oh life, Is just a game

No one ever tells you how to play

See different people

Go different ways

Well our hearts keep drumming

And the years keep coming

Quicker than they’ve ever been

You’re sick of the same thing

But it’s quicker than changing

It’s too late to begin

Well everybody’s running

But you don’t know where

Time is running thin

Everybody’s looking for somebody to love

But we’re scared to let them in

And I say oh oh oh

Are there any survivors ?
Am I here alone ?

And I say oh oh oh

Oh love

It comes and goes

But no one never tells you how to learn to let go

Well the bridge is burning

And the wheel keeps turning

Quicker than it did before

Your heart screams “Yes”

Your head says “no”

And you’re never really sure

Well everybody’s running

But you don’t know why

Time is running short

Everybody’s looking for a place to hide

So there’s no one left at all

And I say oh oh oh

Are there any survivors ?
Am I here alone ?

And I say oh oh oh
