Homeward Bound - Simon & Garfunkel

Homeward Bound




十月中回了臺灣一趟,
除了和親友同學相聚之外,
還到東臺灣玩了兩趟,
不只解了些鄉愁,
連美國大選之後的失落感也減輕了些。
貼這首"Homeward Bound"的用意在此。

這是Paul Simon所寫,
並由Simon & Garfunkel二重唱所灌唱的。
Simon & Garfunkel二重唱
在1960年代紅極一時,
是地下文化(counterculture)的偶像,
與披頭四齊名。他們最有名的歌是
《惡水上的大橋》(Bridge over troubled water)。

Homeward Bound

I'm sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket for my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands
my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And every stop is neatly planned
for a poet and a one-man band.
All my bags are packed

Homeward bound,
I wish I were homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting silently for me.

Every day's an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me,
the movies and the factories
And every stranger's face I see
reminds me that I long to be,

Homeward bound,
I wish I were homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting silently for me.

Tonight I'll sing my songs again,
I'll play the game and pretend.
But all my words come back to me
in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony
I need someone to comfort me.

Homeward bound,
I wish I were homeward bound,
Home where my thought's escaping,
Home where my music's playing,
Home where my love lies waiting silently for me.
Silently for me.
