(音樂:Gilbert O`Sullivan – Alone Again (Naturally))

 

Gilbert O`Sullivan 的這首 “Alone Again (Naturally)”,
是一支描寫心情低落中對自己人生的反省,
還蠻讓人心痛的一首歌,
在1972年大概是反應了那個年代人們的心聲,
讓這首歌大為流行,與 Roberta Flack 的
"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"
成為那一年排行榜的大贏家。

Gilbert O`Sullivan 是愛爾蘭人,
自幼隨父母親移民到英國。
他的父母親都是小商人,沒有什麼音樂背景,
但是家裡有一架鋼琴,Gilbert 算是自學音樂,
在大學裡其實主修美術設計,
不過一直在業餘的樂隊裡混,
除了彈鋼琴之外,也打鼓,
慢慢地發展出他獨特的鋼琴演奏法,
21歲時搬到倫敦去發展他的音樂生涯,
慢慢地打出一片天地。從
1972的這首“Alone Again (Naturally)”,
讓他揚名國際,大受歡迎。
是1970年代最風光的歌手之一。

Gilbert O`Sullivan – Alone Again (Naturally)

In a little while from now
If Im not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top
Will throw myself off
In an effort to
Make it clear to whoever
Wants to know what its like when youre shattered

Left standing in the lurch at a church
Were people saying, My God, thats tough
She stood him up
No point in us remaining
We may as well go home
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to who wouldnt do
The role I was about to play
But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces

Leaving me to doubt
Talk about, God in His mercy
Oh, if he really does exist
Why did he desert me
In my hour of need
I truly am indeed
Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that
There are more hearts broken in the world
That cant be mended
Left unattended
What do we do
What do we do

Alone again, naturally

Looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldnt understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start
With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally
