【歌詞翻譯】Lorde - Green Light


離 16 歲發行的首張專輯《Pure Heroine》距今已經三年多,當時的創作「Royals」和「Team」令人驚艷。如今 20 歲,紐西蘭女歌手 Lorde 將於今年 6/16 推出第二張專輯《Melodrama》,共收錄 11 首歌曲,描述近年戲劇性的瘋狂生活,如螢光閃亮。已逝的搖滾傳奇 David Bowie 曾形容 Lorde 是「the future of music」,而她在創作此張專輯時,心中也一直繫念著他。

I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it!

專輯首支主打「Green Light」與 Jack Antonoff 共同創作,MV 由 Grant Singer 執導,這是 Lorde 在歷經分手之痛後寫給自己的歌,歌名代表交通號誌的綠燈,情感在流行舞曲中宣洩,等待綠燈再次亮起,自由通行。

Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go.

歌名會讓人聯想到美國小說家 F. Scott Fitzgerald 的經典《The Great Gatsby》中反覆出現的那盞綠燈(雖然 Lorde 表示與此無關),象徵著愛情與夢想,充滿希望卻又如此虛無,難以捉摸。有些東西看似很美、很夢幻,是人人心中所在追尋的渴望,但美好不可能永遠停駐。那道綠光是否能照亮現實,使人最終看清生命本質,唯有自己知道。希望每個人在遭遇困境時,可以早日找到那盞綠燈,繼續通行下去。

[Verse 1: ]
I do my makeup in somebody else's car
我在別人的車裡化妝
We order different drinks at the same bars
我們在相同的酒吧裡點著不同的酒
I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth
我知道你做過什麼,好想把真相喊出來
She thinks you love the beach, you're such a damn liar
她以為你喜愛海灘,你這個該死的騙子
Those great whites, they have big teeth
那些大白鯊,有著大牙齒
Oh, they bite you
噢,他們咬你
Thought you said that you would always be in love
以為你說你會永遠活在愛中
But you're not in love no more
但你卻再也不墜入愛河
Did it frighten you
嚇壞你了嗎
How we kissed when we danced on the light-up floor?
當我們在閃亮的舞池上熱舞,親吻的舉動?
On the light-up floor
噢,閃閃發亮的舞池

[Pre-Chorus: ]
But I hear sounds in my mind
而我聽見腦海中的聲音
Brand new sounds in my mind
在我腦海中全新的聲音
But honey I'll be seein' you, ever, I go
但親愛的,不管我去哪裡我永遠都會看著你
But honey I'll be seein' you down every road
但親愛的,在走過的每條路上我都會看到你
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
我會等著它,我想要的那盞綠燈

[Chorus: ]
'Cause honey I'll come get my things, but I can't let go
因為親愛的,我會來拿回我的東西,但我無法放手

Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go
噢,希望我能得到我的東西然後輕易地放手
I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it
我會等著它,我想要的那道綠光

[Verse 2: ]
Sometimes I wake up in a different bedroom
有時候我在不同的臥室醒來
I whisper things, the city sings 'em back to you
我輕聲喃喃自語,城市一樣應聲唱和
All those rumors, they have big teeth
所有那些謠言說道,他們有著大牙齒
Oh, they bite you
噢,他們咬你
Thought you said that you would always be in love
以為你說你會永遠活在愛中
But you're not in love no more
但你卻再也不墜入愛河
Did it frighten you?
嚇壞你了嗎
How we kissed when we danced on the light-up floor?
當我們在閃亮的舞池上熱舞,親吻的舉動?
On the light up floor
噢,閃閃發亮的舞池
