Shattered Dreams:Johnny Hates Jazz最紅的歌

上一篇文章介紹了Johnny Hates Jazz的Turn back the clock,這篇就來講一下他們於1987年橫掃歐陸的成名曲:Shattered Dreams。

有別於之前介紹過的Turn back the clock,Shattered Dreams是一首舞曲式的情歌,於1987年發行之後短時間內就賣破一百萬張,Billboard舞曲榜最佳成績為第2名,英國單曲榜則是第5。

我比較少聽舞曲類的歌,但當年我卻非常喜歡Shattered Dreams,雖然它也是節奏輕快,但覺得和當時正流行的House舞曲不太一樣。總之就是一首少見但好聽的輕快情歌。

Shattered Dreams還錄製了國際版本,差別是國際版的前奏特別的長,以下MV則是標準的UK版本。

Shattered Dreams的歌詞與中文翻譯:

So much for your promises
這麼多的承諾
They died the day you let me go
都已經在妳離開我後消逝
Caught up in a web of lies
一直被困在這整套謊話中
But it was just too late to know
知道時已經太遲了
I thought it was you
我誤以為就是妳
Who would stand by my side
會一直陪在我身邊

And now you’ve given me given me
但現在妳給我的
Nothing but shattered dreams shattered dreams
只有破碎的夢
Feel like I could run away run away from this empty heart
感覺像是從空虛的心逃脫

You said you’d die for me
妳曾說過願意為我而死

Woke up to reality
醒醒吧 回到現實
And found the future not so bright
就會發現未來暗淡無光
I dreamt the impossible
我曾夢見過不可能的場景
That maybe things could work out right
說不定事情真會像夢境那樣順利

I thought it was you
我誤以為就是妳
Who would do me no wrong
會一直陪在我身邊

And now you’ve given me given me
但現在妳給我的
Nothing but shattered dreams shattered dreams
只有破碎的夢
Feel like I could run away run away from this empty heart
感覺像是從空虛的心逃脫

From this empty heart
從空虛的心
I thought it was you who said they’d die for love
我誤以為就是妳 那個曾說過願意為我而死的妳

And now you’ve given me given me
但現在妳給我的
Nothing but shattered dreams shattered dreams
只有破碎的夢
Feel like I could run away run away from this empty heart
感覺像是從空虛的心逃脫

Oh no no no you said you’d die for me
喔,妳曾說過願意為我而死
Oh oh oh oh die for me
喔,為我而死
So much for your promises…
這麼多的承諾…
