【歌詞翻譯】Ed Sheeran - Galway Girl


英國創作男歌手 Ed Sheeran 於今年 3/3 推出全新第三張專輯《÷》,收錄 12 首歌曲,豪華版加贈 4 首作品,不管是浪漫小品還是雀躍舞曲,對音樂的熱情與夢想全在他的音樂中顯現。首發「Castle on the Hill」和「Shape of You」雙單曲稱霸排行榜;特別推薦專輯中的「Galway Girl」,與 2000 年 Steve Earle 的一首歌曲同名,是 Sheeran 與北愛爾蘭傳統民謠樂團 Beoga 所共同創作,啟發採樣其歌曲「Minute 5」,因市場考量本來不被唱片公司青睞,但最後在他對音樂的堅持下而保住,光這點就值得給掌聲。嘻哈流行曲調與愛爾蘭民謠元素碰撞,歡樂輕快詮釋在都柏林與一位高威女孩的美麗邂逅。MV 由 Jason Koenig 執導,邀請愛爾蘭女演員 Saoirse Ronan 擔任女主角,透過 Sheeran 視角兩人一同夜遊高威,酒吧巡禮。

[Chorus: ]
She played the fiddle in an Irish band
她是愛爾蘭樂團的小提琴手
But she fell in love with an English man
卻愛上了一位英國人
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
親吻脖子牽著她的手
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"
說道:「寶貝,我只想一起跳舞。」

[Verse 1: ]
I met her on Grafton street right outside of the bar
在酒吧外的葛拉夫頓街與她邂逅
She shared a cigarette with me while her brother played the guitar
她哥哥彈著吉他,她與我共享香菸
She asked me what does it mean, the Gaelic ink on your arm?
她問我手臂上的蓋爾語刺青有何含義?
Said it was one of my friend's songs, do you want to drink on?
我說是一位朋友的歌曲,妳想喝一杯嗎?
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
她喝 Jamie 來解酒,Jack 來助興(*威士忌品牌 Jameson 和 Jack Daniel)
She got Arthur on the table with Johnny riding a shotgun
Guinness 在桌上,一旁擺著 Powers(*酒類品牌創辦人 Arthur Guinness 和 John Powers)
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
在酒吧暢所欲言,一杯接著一杯
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance
點唱機播放 Van Morrison 的歌曲,我們起身舞蹈

[Verse 2: ]
You know she beat me at darts and then she beat me at pool
你知道,她擲標和撞球都比我厲害
And then she kissed me like there was nobody else in the room
然後她還旁落無人地吻了我
As last orders were called was when she stood on the stool
最後一輪酒上完,她站在凳上
After dancing the céili singing to trad tunes
跳著 Ceili 舞蹈,唱著傳統曲調
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sung so sweet
從未聽過如此甜美的「Carrickfergus」
Acapella in the bar using her feet for a beat
無伴奏演唱,用腳打著節拍
Oh, I could have that voice playing on repeat for a week
噢,那歌聲我可以重複聽上一週也不會膩
And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me
在這擁擠的空間裡,我確信她是為我而唱

[Chorus: ]

[Verse 3: ]
And now we've outstayed our welcome and it's closing time
我們逗留太久,酒吧已經要打烊
I was holding her hand, her hand was holding mine
我握著她的手,她也握著我的手
Our coats both smell of smoke, whisky and wine
彼此外套都沾上香菸、威士忌和酒的味道
As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night
我們用夜晚的寒冷空氣填滿肺部
I walked her home then she took me inside
我走路送她回家,她邀我進屋坐坐
To finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine
吃了些多力多滋,又喝了瓶葡萄酒
I swear I'm gonna put you in a song that I write
我發誓我會把妳寫進我的歌裡
About a Galway Girl and a perfect night
關於一個高威女孩和一個美好夜晚的故事
