Will I see you tonight?

最近喜欢听些欧美的歌。过去偶然听到一张Rod Stewart的《If we fall in love tonight》的专辑,虽然听力不怎么样,没听出几个词,但感觉特棒。
然后就满天下地找啊找的,结果被我在学校的FTP上找到APE格式的,于是狠狠地爽了一把。但随着毕业后那台机子搬回家,这张专辑就只能在记忆中回旋了。
再后来这小租屋里安了网通,于是就试试看在电驴上面找这张专辑,一个礼拜之后,终于下回来了。

专辑里一定有你熟悉的歌,比如一首“Sailing”,听听看,一定是你熟悉的歌,至少,旋律是你熟悉的是吧。Sailing据称是成了英国皇家海军的非官方军歌来着。

我是因为专辑里的第一首曲子“If we fall in love tonight”而记下这个专辑的,但现在我要说的是另一首,“Downtown Train”,入城火车。

Outside another yellow moon

Has punched a hole in the night time mist

I climb through the window and down to the street

I’m shining like a new diamond

The downtown trains are full, full of all them Brooklyn girls

They try so hard to break out of their little worlds

You wave your hand and they scatter like crows

They have nothing that’ll ever capture your heart

They’re just thorns without the rose

Be careful of them in the dark

Oh if I was a the one you chose to be your only one

Oh baby, can’t you hear me now

Can’t you hear me now

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train

Every night, every night it’s just the same

On a downtown train

I know your window and I know it’s late

I know your stairs and your doorway

I walk down your street and past your gate

I stand by the light of the fore way

And watch them as they fall, oh baby

They’re all having their heart attacks

They stay at the carnival

But they’ll never win you back

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train

Every night, every night it’s just the same

You leave me lonely

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train

All my dreams, all my dreams fall like rain

On a downtown train

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train

Every night, every night it’s just the same

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train

All my dreams, all my dreams fall like rain

On a downtown train, on a downtown train

All my dreams fall like rain on a downtown train

有些人喜欢把英文译成中文,但确难有发现译得好的。也许这正是歌曲的“味道”吧,改了,就不是这个味了。
听着歌,仿佛可以看到一个人,深夜还站在女孩的门前,待到灯熄,却只能怅然离去。抬头是那半个金黄的月亮。

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train? 就像你深深了解女孩的习惯一样,每天在那个时间的那班车的那个位子悄悄看着她。但当她看到你的时候,你会低下头,把头上的帽子或是衣服的领子扯一扯。然后匆匆下车。
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train? 你暗自呢喃,但却没人回答。
Will I see you tonight? 拥被入眠,在这样略有凉意的夜晚,谁会和你坐同一班车呢?
