Nickelback – Far Away

今天我要介紹四首歌,幾乎都出自兩位American Idol: Elliot Yamin & Chris Daughtry
 
不是要介紹這些歌的內容,而是我認識這些歌的過程…
 
去年跟同事到美國出差,每天沒有事,唯一能做的就是打開廣播聽音樂,
有幾首歌馬上就吸引了我的注意,憑著對歌詞的模糊辨識google到這些歌的資料,
有幾首在美國就找到了,一兩首回台灣後才找到,還有一些一直都找不到;
其中最愛的兩首就是Elliot Yamin的Wait for You以及Chris Daughtry的Home。
 
大家都知道我最愛聽西洋抒情歌,喜歡的不是歌詞,只是單純的被悠揚的旋律吸引,
並沒有特別去找這兩首歌的歌詞以及歌手的資料,只是喜歡沉浸在其中,
回台灣後,這兩首歌變成了我的手機鈴聲,一直用到現在,
然而對兩位歌手的認識僅止於一個是捲毛頭一個是光頭。
 
這兩個月台灣的電視上開始播放Elliot Yamin的Wait for You MV,
才知道原來他是American Idol第五季的參賽者,Chris Dauhtry好像也是同期的說,
當時還想說怎麼那麼巧…剛好喜歡的兩首歌都是American Idol出身的。
 
Wait for you大家電視上街上應該聽的夠多了,也就不多介紹,
Home這首歌雖然沒有仔細看過歌詞,但聽起來有一種浪子回頭的感覺,
還蠻喜歡那種充滿感謝溫暖與滿足的感覺…
當然啦…剛剛偷看了歌詞,突然覺得這是個臨死之人對他一生的回顧,
同樣是對另一半或是家庭表達愛,不過多了點淡淡的哀愁…
 
當時在美國還有兩首歌每次聽到都很喜歡,但就是忘了旋律及歌詞,
回台灣後也不時聽到過幾次,可惜仍然一回到家就忘了歌詞;
印象最深的是朋友出國前與他談心的那個晚上,店裡放到這兩首歌,
常常前一句還在講我有多難過,後一句就變成,"這首歌我很喜歡耶!!"
 
今天難得沒事做,早上大暴走了一次,讓身心整個很浮躁,
所以上Youtube找了Eillot Yamin及Chris Dauhtry的影片,
想看看他們對我來說只是一曲歌手還是真愛呢?
 
Eillot Yamin的歌還不錯,但因為都很抒情,第一時間聽沒有什麼深刻印象,
後來聽到一首Eillot Yamin及Chris Dauhtry合唱的歌,就開始轉移焦點,
光頭的歌比較rock一點,但仍屬於情歌,聽了好幾首後…突然覺得怪怪的…
 
It’s Not Over的旋律好像聽過,但又想不起在哪邊聽的,
反覆聽了兩次…突然想到…阿!!這不就是我沒找到資訊的其中一首歌嗎?
當初只覺得這首歌曲風與Home一點都不像,完全沒想到會是同個人唱的,
現在想想…另一首我更喜歡的歌,其聲音好像也有些低沉沙啞…該不會也是他唱的吧!!
 
隨手點下看起來點閱率蠻高的Far Away…Bingo!!真的是這首耶!!
不過興奮之情馬上就消失了,因為仔細查證後,這首歌並不是他的作品,
而是另一個團體Nickelback的歌…呵,還真是曲折…
總之,經過快一年,總算讓我找到這首歌了。
 
與大家分享當初我喜歡的幾首歌

Eillot Yamin – Wait for you
 never felt nothing in the world like this before
Now I’m missing you and I’m wishing you would come back through my door
Why did you have to go?
You could have let me know; so now I’m all alone

Girl you could have stayed but you wouldn’t give me a chance
With you not around it’s a little bit more than I can stand
And all my tears they keep runnin’ down my face
Why did you turn away?

So why does your pride make you run and hide
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it’s a lie what you keep inside
This is not how you want it to be

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don’t know what else I can do
Don’t tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I find it just ain’t true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I’ll wait for you

Been a long time since you called me
(How could you forget about me)
You gotta be feeling crazy
How can you walk away
(When) Everything stays the same
I just can’t do it baby

What will it take to make you come back
Girl I told you what it is and it just ain’t like that
Why can’t you look at me?
You’re still in love with me
Don’t leave me crying

Baby why can’t we just start all over again
Get it back to the way it was
If you give me a chance I can love you right
But you’re telling me it won’t be enough

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don’t know what else I can do
Don’t tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I find it just ain’t true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I’ll wait for you

So why does your pride make you run and hide
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it’s a lie what you’re keeping inside
That is not how you want it to be

Baby I will wait for you
Baby I will wait for you
If it’s the last thing I do

Baby I will wait for you
Cause I don’t know what else I can do
Don’t tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I find it just ain’t true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I’ll wait for you
I’ll be waiting …

Chris Daughtry – Home
Here’s the lyrics:
I’m staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I’m going to the place where love
And feeling good don’t ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel’s a different kind of pain.
Well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
Well I’m going home.
The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I’ve not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love, it makes true.
And I don’t know why.
You always seem to give me another try.
So I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
I’m going home.
Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don’t want.
Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.
Oh, well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.
I said these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
I’m going home.

Nickleback – Far Away
This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there’s just one left
‘Cause you know,
you know, you know
[CHORUS]
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me
and you’ll never go
Stop breathing if
I don’t see you anymore
On my knees, I’ll ask
Last chance for one last dance
‘Cause with you, I’d withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I’d give it all
I’d give for us
Give anything but I won’t give up
‘Cause you know,
you know, you know
[CHORUS]
So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know
I wanted
I wanted you to stay
‘Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long
So keep breathing
‘Cause I’m not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
‘Cause I’m not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go

Chris Daughtry – It’s Not Over
I was blown away what could I say
It all seemed to make sense
You’ve taken away everything
And I can’t do without
I try to see the good in life
But good things in life are hard to find
(Chorus)
Blow it away, Blow it away
Can we make this something goooood
Well I tried to do it right this time around
Let’s start oveeerr
I tried to do it right this time around
Its not oveeerr
There’s a part of me that’s dead and in the ground
This love is killing me, but you’re the only one
Its not overrrrr
(Chorus)
Taken all I could take and I cannot wait
Were wasting to much time
Being strong holding on
Cant let it bring us down
My life with you means everything
So I won’t give up that easily
(Chorus)
Blow it Away, Blow it Away
Can we make this something gooood
Cause its all misunderstoooood
Well I tried to do it right this time around
Let’s start over
I tried to do it right this time around
It’s not over
Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground
This love is killing me
But you’re the only one
It’s not oveeeerrr
(Chorus)
We can’t let this get away
Let it out, let it out
Don’t get caught up in yourself
Let it ouuuuttttt
(Chorus)
Let’s start over
I tried to do it right this time around
It’s not over
Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground
This love is killing me
But you’re the only one
It’s not oveeer
Let’s start oveeeerrr
Its not oveeerr, Oh yeah, yeah!
This love is killing me
But you’re the only one
It’s not oveeerrrr…..
