Goodbye Girl- David Gates (强推~)







All your life you've waited

For love to come and stay

And now that I have found you
You must not slip away

I know it's hard believing
The words you've heard before
But darlin', you must trust them
Just once more

'Cause, baby, goodbye doesn't mean forever
Let me tell you, goodbye doesn't mean
We'll never be together again

If you wake up and I'm not there
I won't be long away
'Cause the things you do my goodbye girl
Will bring me back to you

I know you've been taken
Afraid to hurt again
You fight the love you feel for me
Instead of givin' in

But I can wait forever
For helpin' you to see
That I was meant for you
And you for me

So remember, goodbye doesn't mean forever
Let me tell you, goodbye doesn't mean
We'll never be together again

Though we may be so far apart
You still would have my heart
So forget your past my goodbye girl
'Cause now you're home at last

这是一首五六零年代的歌,是某天我在Lite.fm 偶然听到的。
我很喜欢它的旋律,也很喜欢它当中的歌词。
演唱者是David Gates,今年已经72岁了。
我很喜欢抒情歌,也认为以前的歌比现在很多首歌都好听得太多了。
歌曲短短的两分钟,但从内心柔柔唱出来的一字一句都铿锵有力地敲打着心脏。
尤其是下面这一段。。

'Cause baby goodbye, doesn't mean forever.
Let me tell you goodbye, doesn't mean we'll never be together again.
If you wake up and I'm not there I won't be long away.
cause the things you do my goodbye girl
will bring me back to you.


我们不可能永远都只停留在一个定点。
我们总会往前,我们永远都在成长。
而最美的风景,都在路上。
体会过刻骨铭心,也是一种成长。
