〈Stay Young〉

**NOTE**有點年代感的人聽也許更有感覺xD

 

I wanna say it like Simon would

我想要像Paul Simon這樣說

'Cause I was listening this morning

因為 今天早上我獨自一人

On my own thinking if I could

聽著他的歌、幻想著:

I'd be Kathy and make this bus a Greyhound

我是那名叫Kathy的姑娘、搭乘七零年代匹茲堡的交通車

And this sun would always stay down

太陽總是躲在地平線之下

And there would be so much time for us

如此 我們有花不完的時間相處

Time for us

就我們兩人

 

My hand's out, I wanna throw my cards now

放手吧 我想是時候攤牌了

Making your name our hometown

你的名字將成為家鄉的榮耀

But all my trains are here

但別擔心  只要有火車

Please don't be worried

我哪裡都到得了
No doubt I'll found you in our old crowd

走出車站  我必會在熟悉的人群中與你重逢

So many things to say if you stay

那時  我們還有好多話要聊


So stay young

所以   讓青春為我們停留吧
I know that I'm talking too much

我知道我總是不小心說大話

And I'll get nowhere tryna do it at once

同時抱著太多夢想   只會一事無成

But oh my God, I wanna be someone

但天哪   我渴望成為大人物

So stay young

所以   請記得此刻年輕的你

With me, 'cause I hope that it's you

希望有那麼一日  

That I'll break my back tryna run home to

我會拼了命回到家鄉找你

Because oh my God, I want you to be the one

因為我的天   我想要你成為唯一

So stay young

所以   請永保年輕


I wanna say it like Simon would

我想要和Paul Simon一樣
I wanna make my mother feel things

我想讓我的母親驕傲

I wanna have the marching band

我想要擁有樂隊為我演奏

But right now it's just me and steel strings, lonely

但此刻   只有琴弦和孤獨的我為伍
So when I miss you it is slowly

我習慣慢慢地想念你

'Cause I'm doing good here mostly on my own

因為在這兒我過得還不錯
Mostly on my own

自己過得還不錯


My hand's out, I wanna throw my cards now

放手吧 我想是時候攤牌了

Making your name our hometown

你的名字將成為家鄉的榮耀

But all my trains are here

但別擔心  只要有火車

Please don't be worried

我哪裡都到得了
No doubt I'll found you in our old crowd

走出車站  我必會在熟悉的人群中與你重逢

So many things to say if you stay

And I'll get nowhere tryna do it at once

Oh-oh-woah-oh
Oh, stay young
Oh, woah
(Stay young)


And I promise I care

我發誓我在乎

I know it's hard, know that I'm never there

我知道離別的困難、我們未來的路看似平行而遙遠

But call me from the bathroom when you're low

但當你難過時   在廁所撥電話給我吧

We'll stay young until we wanna be old

讓我們重溫共有的青春

Electric blankets so we're never cold

好比寒冬時的電熱毯使人保暖

'Cause you have always been my ticket home

因為你一直是我心中的歸屬

And we stayed young

我會永遠在你的心裡

 

So stay young

所以   讓青春為我們停留吧
I know that I'm talking too much

我知道我總是不小心說大話

And I'll get nowhere tryna do it at once

同時抱著太多夢想   只會一事無成

But oh my God, I wanna be someone

但天哪   我渴望成為大人物

So stay young

所以   請記得此刻年輕的你

With me, 'cause I hope that it's you

希望有那麼一日  

That I'll break my back tryna run home to

我會拼了命回到家鄉找你

Because oh my God, I want you to be the one

因為我的天   我想要你成為唯一

So stay young

所以   請永保年輕



 

You get the trick? It's Simon & Garfunkel.

Bonus: America by Simon and Garfunkel (click here)

 

18歲來自英格蘭南部West Sussex的Maisie Peters, 三年前開始將自己的音樂創作上傳網路,在高中時就和Atlantic Records 簽約成為歌手。'Stay Young’是Maisie Peters 第一部正式參與拍攝的音樂影片,在美國LA拍攝。

“...when I was doing music for the first time full time every day chasing my dreams living on my own in this little attic in willsden green while all my friends were back in my tiny hometown getting ready for uni , all of us excited lonely nervous going in different directions. I was listening to america by simon and garfunkel that morning going to the session and thinking about how I wanna be as good as paul simon one day lol and it started from there!!...”

這首歌是去年夏天的時候寫的,當時Maisie剛高中畢業,實現了成為全職音樂人的夢想,每天在小閣樓裡創作,而和她同年齡的朋友都在為了大學準備,彼此將踏上截然不同的道路,也將各自進入不同的生活圈子。

America 象徵的就是追求夢想中那塊屬於自己的天地吧!也許感到迷茫時,聽America就有特別的感觸了,是一首在任何時代都能引起共鳴的好歌:))

Paul Simon是Maisie Peters夢想成為的音樂人,而America正是她寫下Stay Young的開端。
