Estranged

Guns N' Roses - Estranged
When you're talkin to yourself
And nobody's home
You can fool yourself
You came in this world alone
(Alone) 
So nobody ever told you baby
How it was gonna be
So what'll happen to you baby
Guess we'll have to wait and see
One, two  
Old at heart but I'm only 28
And I'm much too young
To let love break my heart
Young at heart but it's getting much too late
To find ourselves so far apart 
I don't know how you're s'posed
To find me lately
An what more could you ask from me
How could you say that I never needed you
When you took everything
Said you took everything from me 
Young at heart an it gets so hard to wait
When no one I know can seem to help me now
Old at heart but I musn't hesitate
If I'm to find my own way out 
Still talkin' to myself and nobody's home
(Alone) 
So nobody ever told us baby
How it was gonna be
So what'll happen to us baby
Guess we'll have to wait and see 
When I find out all the reasons
Maybe I'll find another way
Find another day
With all the changing seasons of my life
Maybe I'll get it right next time
An now that you've been broken down
Got your head out of the clouds
You're back down on the ground
And you don't talk so loud
An you don't walk so proud
Any more, and what for 
Well I jumped into the river too many times
to make it home
I'm out here on my own, an drifting all alone
If it doesn't show give it time
To read between the lines
'Cause I see the storm getting closer
And the waves they get so high
Seems everything We've ever known's here
Why must it drift away and die 
I'll never find anyone to replace you
Guess I'll have to make it thru, this time
Oh this time
Without you 
I knew the storm was getting closer
And all my friends said I was high
But everything we've ever known's here
I never wanted it to die 
        我不是特別愛唱歌的人,但有時候剛好很喜歡某首歌,又還唱得來的話,(在我聽的音樂中比例蠻低的),就會一段時期都哼哼唱唱這首歌,尤其是洗衣服跟走在路上的時候。比較有印象的,現在可以想起中學時代的"If"(Bread)、大學時的"A Train to Heaven"(陳昇)、前幾年在娘家附近國小跑步時的"As Tears Go by"(Rolling Stones)...還有本篇的"Estranged"。這種以個人成長為主題的歌詞(或其他文本),似乎總是特別吸引我,不過當然也是因為Slash的吉他。唱歌的時候,記得住的間奏我也會順便一起哼,像這首我覺得太難的,就會在心裡默默幫他間奏完,再開始唱下一句。(←完完全全是自我陶醉的偏執狂。)
        不過,Estranged的mv拍得實在無厘頭,害我邊看邊笑。雖然比不上南方之星「海嘯」mv中,女主角被倒下來的布景壓到,男生跑出去呼救那麼經典爆笑,但看到第7分鐘,Axl Rose無端跑去跳海,還拒絕救生圈,最後卻又被直昇機救起,浪費社會資源的那一段,還是覺得好好笑—這是幹嘛呢?因為一直笑,都忘記歌詞帶給我的感動了,真是破壞氣氛呀!不過,有可愛的海豚!海豚!海豚!又要一隻一隻活活抱走!還有從海中浮出來,如海神一般的Slash,彷彿不管在哪都能彈似的,上次在曠野中,(見November Rain),這次乾脆站在海面上,有種亙古永恆的氛圍,似乎天荒地老也要繼續彈下去的神聖感覺。看在這兩點的份上,我還是覺得很喜歡這支mv。
