發現這首歌曲,應該稱之為無心插柳的意外收穫,當時剛到這個陌生的國家時,還傻呼呼地認為省下了買車的預算,總可以瀟灑地抱一套醉心許久的真空管,我期待那副飽滿的嗓子可以柔軟充滿彈力地唱出我每一天的退休協奏曲,但是因為人生地不熟,當初的昂首公雞哥又以守財奴這種堅不可摧的生死信念來帶領我添購生活必需品,在突然包圍的炎熱以及生理時差的反應來不及拒絕,這一套莫名其妙的擴大機與喇叭的組合,穩如泰山的佔據了本來以為要盡情與村上春樹為伍的角落,但是混屯難耐的數位低音,以及欲振乏力的鏗鏘高音,還有定位不明的變調中音,套句劉建明督察在音響店裡被洗腦的說法是:一句話,就是通俗!

 

於是這套音響設備成了小鬼頭享受環太平洋,復仇者聯盟之類的好朋友,一起謀殺了我的耳朵,用朦朧又不穩定的音量與小孩子的尖叫聲,一起營造出退休生活裡,每個看電影世界裡的失望有餘的奇幻變奏曲,糊裡糊塗的妥協,就這樣過了幾乎一年的時間了。

 


 

 

You had your run
And it's been a good one
Seems like the world is passing you by
Oh Father Time
He just keeps on ticking
(滴滴答答作響)
Still got a lot of life and a song to sing
You fell in love
Back in the day
Can't forget her face
Can't remember her name
She was a beauty
A shining star
Just when you weren't looking she broke your heart
 
You been down every highway
(你在每一條康莊大道上絆了一跤)
Burned your share of bridges
(在許多單向熱情的友情上吃足了苦頭)
 
You found forgiveness
(你最後發現了原諒來詮釋無能為力的任何失意)
 
You think that you're still a young bull rider
(你還是認為自己仍然是個桀驁不馴的鬥士)
 
Til you look in the mirror and see an old timer
(直到你看到鏡子裡歲月不饒人的痕跡)
 
One by one
Your friends have crossed over
(已經走過了一生)
You pray for mercy(憐憫) and a few more days
Still got dreams inside your head
Someday it's a struggle just to get out of bed
(有一天你連床都下不了了)
