Lost Boys Calling



Theme of The Legend of 1900 - Lost Boys Calling

今天感覺就是翻譯的Mode. 才一開始要唸書又聽到這首歌.
這是我很愛的一首歌, 海上鋼琴師的主題曲.

歌詞中有股淡淡的哀傷.
把他翻譯成歌詞之後才覺得他要表達的很虛幻.
可能是我英文能力還不夠的關係, 翻譯的不是很好.

裡面的"她"應該指的是那艘船.
電影裡面的主角終其一生呆在他生長船上, 直到最後都不忍離去.
連心愛的女生都因此而放棄. (大概的介紹可以看這裡.)

Roger Waters - Lost Boys Calling

歌詞及我的翻譯:

Come hold me now
I am not gone
I would not leave you here alone
In this dead calm beneath the waves
I can still hear those lost boys calling
來握緊我
我並未離去
我不會離開妳獨自在這裡
在這片波瀾下的死寂
我仍能聽到這些迷失的男孩喊叫著.

You could not speak
You were afraid
To take the risk of being left again
And so you tipped your hat and waved and then
You turned back up the gangway of that steel tomb again
妳沒辦法說話
你害怕去冒著被遺棄的風險
你揮舞著帽子
你又回頭走向那鐵製的墳墓(說主角決定不下船又走回船上那一幕)

And in Mott street in July
When I hear those seabirds cry
I hold the child
The child in the man
The clild that we leave behind
在七月的Mott 街
當我聽到那些海鳥哭泣
我握著那個小男孩
那個在男人內心的小男孩
那個我們遺留下的小男孩

And in Mott street in July
When she hears those seabirds cry
She holds the child
The child in the man
The child that we leave behind
在七月的Mott 街
當她聽到那些海鳥哭泣
她握著那個小男孩
那個在男人內心的小男孩
那個我們遺留下的小男孩

The spotlight fades
The boys disband
The final notes lie mute upon the sand
And in the silence of the grave
I can still hear those lost boys calling
絢爛的聚光燈散去...
小男孩也走遠..
最後的音符消散在沙堆裡...
在死亡的寂靜之中
我仍能聽到這些迷失的男孩喊叫著.

We left them there
When they were young
The men were gone until the west was won
And now there's nothing left but time to kill
You never took us fishin' dad and now you never will
當他們還年少的時候..
當西方贏的戰爭的時候男人們離去(註)
現在除了空暇的時間, 沒有任何東西被遺留下來
你從未也將不會帶我們一起去釣魚
我們把他們遺留在那裡

And in Mott street in July
When she hears the seabirds cry
She holds the child
The child in the man
The child that we leave behind
在七月的Mott 街
當她聽到那些海鳥哭泣
她握著那個小男孩
那個在男人內心的小男孩
我仍能聽到這些迷失的男孩喊叫著.

註:The Legend of 1900這部電影的背景是World World II, 我推測是因此才會寫the west was won.

你也可以看這裡介紹這張原聲帶.

我也很喜歡這部電影,順帶一提,片中上船跟1900單挑的那個Jelly Roll Morton是真有其人喔!他也的確自誇自己發明了爵士樂,詳http://blog.sina.com.tw/gabbanna0127/article.php?pbgid=2221&entryid=20904%3E,另外,該片的時間點二次大戰應該還沒開戰吧
