Fool's Garden - Lemon Tree (原唱)


I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

I'm sitting here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
Well, nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don't want to sit on the lemon-tree

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
And I wonder, wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see, and all that I can see, and all that I can see
Is just a yellow lemon-tree

Lemon Tree是出自Fool's Garden的手筆, 該團以輕快的英式民謠曲風見長,
受到The Beatles極大的影響, 1995年推出專輯Dish of the Day, Lemon
Tree便收錄其中. 那個時間點正好是Oasis、Suede、Blur...等英倫樂團當紅
的時期, 而他們所掀起的Brit-Pop席捲全球各地. Fool's Garden雖非來自
英倫, 不過因為曲風的問題, 也算是趕搭那班順風車.
Lemon Tree是由該團兩位靈魂人物Peter Freudenthaler和Volker Hinkel
聯合創作, 此曲是否暗藏什麼典故尚無可考. 倒是把年輕人那股青澀徬惶的
心態張顯得淋漓盡致(真像吃到檸檬的那種感覺). 另外此曲也隱約對於1960
年代的生活有著一些憧憬.
這首曲子簡單易懂, 節拍明顯旋律流暢, 難怪在全球如此流行.

Fool's Garden - Meanwhile

You've changed the world around you
Is it better now?
No starving anymore
Hey,is it better now?
Your helpless little fingers
They've never been as calm as now
Your trembling is over
It's better now

If there was a light in the dark
I would try to wake you up
Could I look into your eyes
While another baby cries
Forgive me

I see the children in the playfield
You had to leave your place
Your silent accusation
They took away your face
Your little life was over
before it ever had begun
Your little wings were broken
You've never reached the sun

If there was a light in the dark
I would try to wake you up
Could I look into your eyes
Would you take my alibis
Forgive me

Ev'rybody knows it
Repression is the way
You're not the child next door
You're much too far away

But there's no light in the dark
So I won't try to wake you up
I couldn't look into your eyes
In this world of alibis
Forgive me

Fool's Garden - Ordinary Man

Who you gonna be?
The owner of the moon,
A soon forgotten hero with a never fading bloom.
Who you wanna be?
When you realize you're failing all the time,
Who you wanna be?

Where do you wanna go?
When you leave your past behind,
When you move yourself in circles
and there's nothing left to find.
Where do you wanna go?
When you feel there's nothing left for you to do.

Who you wanna be?
In a world of sad and loneliness.
Who you wanna be?
When you're full of all the emptiness,
Who you wanna be?
When the moon is on the wane,
An ordinary....

Man got a ticket for the life to come,
You will attain the land a day
Man what you wanna take along
Don't you know the price you pay
For your greedy thoughts,
Your pretty gods,
You give yourself away,
Who you wanna be?
Where you wanna go?

Mr. Mirror don't tell me what you see,
I'm a content man,
In a modern world,
That's all I want to be.
Why should i go to a place I never wanted to belong?

I don't wanna be in a world of sad and loneliness,
I don't wanna be the fool of all the emptiness,
I don't wanna be a shadow in the rain,
An ordinary man...
