Luke Temple//Hold a Match for a Gasoline World

STYLE Folk
LABEL White Wabbit Records
YEAR
2006
● 跳動音符閃耀著光采,纖細的詩人靈魂帶著Elliott Smith的世紀寂寞與Nick Drake的透明憂鬱
● 小白兔代理版加兩曲收EP作品B-Bird、Painting Blue

Luke Temple有一副最令人動容的嗓音,聽他唱歌很容易聯想到早逝的傳奇歌手Elliot Smith,憂鬱的靈魂和溫柔純真的心,造就帶著寂寞況味的甜蜜感。帶點鄉村氣息的樸質吉他,彈著彈著卻漸呈半透明的哀傷,頗有英國老牌民謠王子Nick Drake的神韻。如果你的心裡還有柔軟的地方,聽著Luke Temple,在淡淡的幸福油然而生的時候,內心深處的某個地方大概會不明所以的揪了起來。

身為一個質樸的青年,Luke Temple在唸中學的時候,大部分的時間都背著一個睡袋到森林裡睡覺,在糖果店打工,精靈般的生活簡直太夢幻;為了錄音,他一邊當油漆工人、建築工人,然後用最簡單的方式在自己家裡完成。在這張專輯裡,大部份的歌都是吉他為主,也收錄了一些吉他開破音、搭配鼓手的「樂團形態」,有了曾和Fiona Apple、David Bowie合作的知名鼓手Matt Chamberlain加持,「In the End」、「Radiation Blues」,這些歌曲中Luke Temple則呈現了一種從容自若的浪漫與自信。

無論你喜歡的是帶著鄉村情調,逗奇俏皮的「Someone, Somewhere」、「Old New York」;或者低迴無助的「Only a Ghost」、「Private Shipwreck」, Luke Temple那份純真氣息都會深深感動你。

Someone Somewhere

I hear its raining
The tides are turning
Filling up the washpans till we scrub our skin away
The sky is yellow
The clouds are burning
The air it has the fragranced of a brand new yesterday

Someone somewhere said
Trees have eyes and rocks have legs
and we have monsters in our heads
a secret kept to raise the dead

I hear an engine
It makes my mouth move
Spitting out those words that I can never hear
I’m not your neighbor
We live alone now
Wash away our sins into a bowling bath of tears

Someone Somewhere said
Feet are grounded
Thumbs are beacons
Lightning passes through instead
A secret kept to raise the dead

When I’m alive I will go walk out in the garden
Live on only flowers plant a seed
A fragile human seed
To grow a family tree
When I’m alive I will go walk into the ocean
Walk down in the deep plant a seed
I fragile human seed
To grow a family tree
A lovely family tree it will

Someone Somewhere said
Bones remember
Skin is tender
Golden puddles in our beds
A secret kept to raise the
Someone somewhere said
Trees have eyes and rocks have legs
And we have monsters in our heads
A secret kept to raise the dead

Make right with you

When all goes sideways and all goes blue
That’s the time to make right with you
Give up for angles give up for clues
That’s the time to make right with you

When all of life’s dragging me through
I’ve got to make right with you
Lord knows, Lord knows I do

When power makes offers I pull back my hand
That’s the time to make right with man
Give up position give up comand
That’s the time to make right with man

In an hour glass draining its sand
That’s the time to make right with man
There’s one thing you must undestand
I’ve got to make right with man
Lord knows Lord knows I can

On a lonely highway in a mountain fog
That was the time I made right with God
My car flipped over to avoid a rock
That was the time I made right with God

If life is a drop in the pot
I’ve got to make right with God
One thing you know I must do
I’ve got to make right with you
Lord knows Lord knows I do

I’ve to make right with
Got to make right with
Got to make right with you

In the End

There’s a light in the window that reminds me of heaven
And the love lightened glow on your face
It’s cold here in Iceland and the drunks on the streets
Tie chains onto misery’s gates

When I look at the clouds sometimes I see angels
The wind just a breeze off there wings
Then I think of your feel and my mind starts a spinning
With all of those possible things

In the end dear
When your eyes have seen enough
The pinch of grief and its wounded thief won’t steel your love
In the end dear
Though the road was long and tough
The light in you will shine above

All of us people
We’re pulling our wagons
Filled with our prizes and shames
Sometimes mine is heavy
To pull up this hill
But I’ll sit and I’ll think just the same
Like I do sometimes

In the end dear
When your eyes have seen enough
The pinch of grief and its wounded thief won’t steel your love
In the end dear the road was long and tough
The light in you will shine above


Mr. Disgrace

Mr. Disgrace couldn’t get up and go
He was tied to his bed with fear of unknown
Hating his own

His pockets are filled with the scraps of a poem
He’d written to her but she’ll never know
He’d ever written a poem

Mr. Disgrace has a problem with parts
Fitting them in and reading the charts
In a world made of parts

He feels he can see in the minds and the hearts
If only the new where everything starts
In a world made of too many parts

If only they knew
One isn’t two when you’re empty
Blinded by words trampled by herds ‘cause he’s empty

Mr. Disgrace would you get up and go
You’re tied to your bed with the fear of unknown
The fear that you only could know


Radiation Blues

I oh I’ve got radiation blues
You’ve seen right in through me
‘cause who might have knew
You would give radiation blues

I oh I want to cut myself in two
And show you the better half
‘cause who might have knew
You would give radiation blues

This overwhelming transparency
Is underneath my skin
My nerves are shinning and you can see
Exactly where I’ve been

I oh I want metal plated shows
I’ll live less carelessly
‘cause who might have knew
You would give radiation blues

I oh I want to live just how I choose
But you see facades in me
‘cause who might have knew
You would give radiation blues
In ultraviolet hues
You would give radiation blues


Old New York

Think I’m leaving old New York behind
A whisper west is blowing through my mind
Thought I’d give it one good college try
Stare too long the sun will burn you blind

See that open road
I know I’ll take it
Try and slip from the city’s grip

I’ve tried I’ve tried but why

Alters built on greed and glamour lust
A prized idea for children born of trust
Too many are left in fortunes dust
Left to feed and feed they always must

See that open road
I know I’ll take it
Try and slip from the cities grip

I’ve tried I’ve tried but why
Live where they aim to die
I’ve tried I’ve tried but why
Live where they aim to die
Squeeze through the needles I

Something’s in the ground couldn’t you hear that awful sound
Something’s falling down couldn’t you hear that awful sound

See that open road
I know I’ll take it
Try and slip from the cities grip

I’ve tried I’ve tried but why
Live where they aim to die
I’ve tried I’ve tried but why
Live where they aim to die
Squeeze through the needles eye


Private Shipwreck

I made a frantic gesture
We finally won the war
I laid down my time

They say we won there freedom
But my hands are trembling
There freedom for my mind

How can I live together
But die alone
My life’s a private shipwreck at sea
Maybe I’ll rise from the ashes
Take a skipping stone
And throw it passed the wave that’s come for me

I knew your face while sleeping
I picked up every stone
It could have been mine
Now the mirrors cracking
Along with every bone
In Gods own design

How can I live together
But die alone
My life’s a private shipwreck at sea
Maybe I’ll rise from the ashes
Take a skipping stone
And through it past the wave that’s come for me


To all my good friends goodbye

I’m standing on top
The ninety first story
Watching my life pass me by
It’s hard to see the world in its glory
With tears that are burning my eyes

You tried to give reasons
One thousand good reasons
One thousand good reasons I should try
But why
So tell my old lady I’ll be seeing her soon
And all of my good friends goodbye

As far as I remember
It was uphill and climbing
No rest for weary feet
I’ve worked all my lifetime
With sawdust and timber
To widdle her majestys seat

The one thing I loved
I loved my sweetheart
And then she had to go on and die
So tell my old lady I’ll be seeing her soon and all of my good friends goodbye

I know that it’s selfish I’m sure you all will move on
I’ve heard that old radio playing
I know it’s my song

So if I’ve lived for something
And if I’ve lived true
Let him not cast me below
We all have our reasons for pushing on through
My reasons had somewhere to go

I’m weightless suspended
My back feels the rushing
My eyes on the twelve o’clock sky
So tell my old lady I’ll be seeing her soon and all of my good friends goodbye



Get Deep Get Close

I’m pierced by the hand of heavy light
They come, I go
Give love to the thick and breathy night
Get deep get close

Desire built a mountain out of man
Fractured almost
What now with my head out on demand
Get deep get close

All of those days and nights and nights
Burned everyone alive
All of those ways you might have tried
To keep yourself alive
Build mountains in your mind
Build mountains every time
Take rock and burn it in the light

I am one memory of a man
I am a ghost
What now with my head out on demand
Get deep get close

All of those days and night and nights
Burned everyone alive
All of those ways you might have tried
To keep yourself alive
Build mountains in you mind
Build mountains every time
Take rock and burn it in the light


Blue britches

Last night in an alcohol light
I walked away
I felt, there was something not right
But couldn’t say

You say, it aint anything
Small talk runs thin
But he’d stand naked for you
In an arctic wind

Tell me I’m a clown to ever think you’d get around in other parts
All those men left blue down in there britches left with stitches in there hearts

I watched her do it to him
I watched dad break
How quick a big thing can end from a little mistake

Tell me I’m a clown to ever think you’d get around in other parts
All those men left blue down in there britches left with stitches in there hearts.

Sometimes it’s hard to tell
But how it all might spill
Pay phone the county jail
Tell me


Only a Ghost

God only knows that you’ve got a lot of heart my dear
It’s written all over your face
And God only know that you’ve got a lot of plans my dear
So let’s pack up and get out of this place

You only know that you’ve got a lot of pain my dear
It’s eating you out from inside
And you only know that you’ve got a lot of past my dear
So lets hop in my car and lets ride

‘cause I’ve been here wondering and hoping and thinking when you would let me in
But you keep on running and hiding and drinking
I fear to the end

God only knows that you’ve got a lot of soul my dear
You can tell that you’ve got nothing to lose
And you only know that you got a lot to say my dear
But don’t speak ‘cause I’m already moved

And I know that you are led around in your dreams
Floating ten feet of the ground
But dreams are just dreams and God only knows
That one day you’ll have to come down

I only know that I’m in love with you dear\
But my heart caries a burdensome load
So don’t think twice ‘cause I’m just a ghost to you dear
I guess God only knows what God knows


B-Bird

B-bird up on high he claps such quality thunder
He’ll smash the fruit to wine and get high off the sound that it makes he’ll play a crooked string and you’ll feel that spell that you’re under

He’ll spread his angel wings when you thought he was only a man
Into the flood again he’s got those chops that bleed
Out of the pouring rain he’ll give you sounds you thought that you haven’t heard but now your hearing

B-Bird take and fly he’ll pull the chair out from under
He’ll give you gifts with love
with the battle ax that he swings
He’ll play a single sound damn near tear the house all asunder
B-bird he’s the one the one that I always will miss

Into the flood again he’s got those chops that bleed
Out of the pouring rain he’ll give you sounds you need
Into the flood again he’s got those chops that bleed
Out of the pouring rain he’ll give you sounds you thought that you haven’t heard but now your hearing


Painted Blue

my friend I’ve been keeping a lie on file I’ve washed my hands in the dirt of other lands tiptoed softly you slept an unkowing child while i stole food from your hand so all i can say is what can I do I’ve done you so wrong while you looked at me true. I walked on your lawn and painted it blue. If only you knew, ‘cause only I knew

Why I did this I thought it would bring no harm
Now it’s eating a whole in my head
Covered traces with the smiles and a phony charm
While we traded nights in her bed

All I can say is what can I do
I’ve done you so wrong while you looked at me true
I’ve walked on your lawn and painted it blue
If only you knew, ‘cause only I knew
