玫瑰花床

  開始聽Bon Jove這個樂團是1992年,之所以這麼清楚日期,是因為手上一張Bed of roses(玫瑰花床)單曲很合我的感覺,但其實是因為我對抒情搖滾的喜愛,這首歌後來收錄在Keep The Faith / 堅持信念的專輯中。

 

  歌曲以吉他及鋼琴兩樣簡單的樂器為開端,但我想鋼琴並不是一般的古典鋼琴,去看了MV,應該是直立式的電鋼琴,因為音色較古典鋼琴明亮許多,聽起來雖然是單薄的,但彈下去聲音卻有加乘的效果,感覺適合搖滾演唱會使用。

 

  當然這是一首關於愛情的歌,歌詞並未去描寫愛情的深度,而是一個像痞子無賴的男子(最近剛看完韓劇不汗黨),緩緩形容他頹廢的生活,儘管外表看起來一切都無所謂,但對自己所愛的女子卻有著超乎想像的深情,歌詞屬於很美式的風味。

  

收錄歌詞如下:

Sitting here wasted  And wounded at this old piano
Trying hard to capture the moment this morning
  
I don’t know
‘Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head
And some blond gave me nightmares
  
I think she’s still in my bed
As I dream about movies
  
They won’t make of me when I’m dead

With an ironclad fist I wake up  And French kiss the morning
While marching band keeps its own beat in my head
  While we’re talking  

About all of the things that I long to believe
About love and the truth and what you mean to me
And the truth is
  
baby you’re all that I need

I want to lay you down a bed of roses  For tonight I sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
  
And lay you down on bed of roses

Well I’m so far away  That each step that I take is on my way home
A king’s ransom in dimes I’d given each night
  
Just to see through this payphone
Still I run out of time
  
Or it’s hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I’ll just close my eyes and whisper
  
Baby, blind love is true

The hotel bar hangover whiskey’s gone dry  The barkeeper’s wig’s crooked
And she’s giving me the eye
  
I might have said yeah
But I laughed so hard I think I died

When you close your eyes  Know I’ll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
  
To stand in her spotlight again
Tonight I won’t be alone
  
But you know that don’t mean I’m not lonely
I’ve got nothing to prove
  For it’s you that I’d die to defend
