挪威精灵:Sitting down here
[ 2006-08-08 14:37 ]

“你说起话来好像很懂我,想成为我的朋友,但太晚了,我不会再回头。 你也许想当什么事儿都没发生过,但你应该明白,我已学会了报复,我发誓总有一天会让你尝到同样的滋味……”这么激烈的言词,如此沉静的声音——是不是琳恩的音喉有静如水的特质,以致让听者忽略了歌中的爱恨交织?

一曲勇敢的报复,一首孤独的控诉,却让整个心灵沉静在柔和的色调里,这就是琳恩,在你情绪激动时,能安抚你躁动心绪的琳恩。Sitting down here(《我坐在这里》)是挪威精灵Lene Marlin的第二支畅销单曲,经林忆莲的成功翻唱,琳恩迅速成为台湾和日本歌迷的可人儿。

     Lyrics 

Sitting down here   by   Lene Marlin

I'm sitting down here
But hey you can't see me…

Your words cut rather deeply
They're just some other lies
I'm hiding from a distance
I've got to pay the price 
Defending all against it

I really don't know why
You're obsessed with all my secrets
You always make me cry 
You seem to wanna hurt me
No matter what I do

I'm telling just a couple
But somehow it gets to you
But I've learned how to get revenge
And I swear you'll experience that some day   

I'm sitting down here
But hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible
You don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day

I'm sitting down here
But hey you can't see me

I'm not trying to avoid you
Just don't wanna hear your voice
When you call me up so often
I don't really have a choice 

You're talking like you know me
And wanna be my friend 
But that's really too late now
I won't try it once again

You may think that I'm a loser
That I don't really care
You may think that it's all forgotten
But you should be aware
Cause I've learned to get revenge
And I swear you'll experience that some day


I'm sitting down here
But hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible
You don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day

I'm sitting down here
But hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible
You don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day

You seem to wanna hurt me
No matter what I do
I'm telling just a couple
But somehow it gets to you
But I've learned how to get revenge
And I swear you'll experience that some day  

I'm sitting down here
But hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible
You don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day
 
  Words and phrases

1. Your words cut rather deeply : “你的话真的很伤人”。

Cut原意指“切、割、砍”,此处引申为“你的话令我‘心如刀割’”。

2. They're just some other lies :这只不过又是谎言。”

口语中,我们可注意短语some other的用法,比如,拒绝见面的推托之辞“We can meet some other time.”(我们改天再见吧。)

3. a couple: 这里可不是指一对夫妇,而是“几个人”

4. But somehow it gets to you: 这句话有两种理解:

  1〉“但不知怎么着你还是知道了(这些秘密)”

由于前句说“我真不知为什么,你总想知道我所有的秘密”,所以此处可理解为“你还是探到了我告诉给朋友的秘密”。不过,若这样,it在此就应指代“secrets”,似乎不妥。

  2〉“但不知怎么着却惹了你”

短语get to sb.在口语中常用来形容“惹怒某人,影响某人”,如Her constant nagging is beginning to get to him.(她不停地唠叨,惹得他生气起来。)在歌中,it可理解为“告诉朋友秘密这件事”,由此,“但不知怎么着却惹了你”更符合歌者的原意。

4. And I swear you'll experience that some day : “我发誓总有一天你会尝到同样的滋味。

5. kinda:  kind of的缩略形式,在前几首歌里如“Any man of mine”,我们已见过类似的表达。

6. You may think that it's all forgotten: “也许你想当什么事都没有发生过”

这句话日常生活中肯定用得到,尤其当男孩子认错不彻底时,女友十有八九会这么说。
