~《Say It Isn't So》~(2003年)

Written by  David Krueger , Per Magnusson , Jörgen Elofsson

From the album Go Your Own Way(走自己的路)

Skies are dark it's time for rain
Final call you board the train
Heading for tomorrow
I wave goodbye to yesterdays
Wipe the tears you hide your face
Blinded by the sorrow

How can I be smiling like before
When baby, you don't love me anymore

Say it isn't so
Tell me you're not leaving
Say you changed your mind now
That I am only dreaming
That this is not goodbye
This is starting over
If you wanna know
I don't wanna let go
So say it isn't so

Ten to five atleast we tried
We're still alive but hope just died
As they close the door behind you
Whistle blows and tons of steel
Shake the ground beneath the wheels
As I wish I never found you

How can I be smiling when you're gone
Will I be strong enough to carry on

Say it isn't so
Tell me you're not leaving
Say you changed your mind now
That I am only dreaming
That this is not goodbye
This is starting over
If you wanna know
I don't wanna let go
So say it isn't so

Miles and miles to go before I can say,
Before I can lay my love for you to sleep
Oh, darling oh
I got miles and miles to go
Before anyone will ever hear
Me laugh again

Say it isn't so
Tell me you're not leaving
Say you changed your mind now
That I am only dreaming
That this is not goodbye
This is starting over
If you wanna know
I don't wanna let go
So say it isn't so

Say you changed your mind now
That I am only dreaming
That this is not goodbye
This is starting over
If you wanna know
I don't wanna let go
So say it isn't so

If you wanna know
I don't wanna let go
So say it isn't so

~《Anyone Of Us (Stupid Mistake)》~(2002年)

Written by  Jörgen Elofsson , Per Magnusson , David Kreuger

From the album What My Heart Wants to Say(我心深處)

I´ve been letting you down, down
Girl I know I've been such a fool
Giving in to temptation
When I should´ve played it cool
The situation got out of hand
I hope you understand

It can happen to..
Anyone of us, anyone you think of
Anyone can fall
Anyone can hurt someone they love
Hearts will break
´Cause I made a stupid mistake
It can happen to..
Anyone of us, say you will forgive me
Anyone can fail
Say you will believe me
I can´t take my heart will break
´Cause I made a stupid mistake
A stupid mistake

She was kind of exciting
A little crazy I should´ve known
She must have altered my senses
´Cause I offered to walk her home
The situation got out of hand
I hope you understand

It can happen to..
Anyone of us, anyone you think of
Anyone can fall
Anyone can hurt someone they love
Hearts will break
´Cause I made a stupid mistake
It can happen to..
Anyone of us, say you will forgive me
Anyone can fail
Say you will believe me
I can´t take my heart will break
´Cause I made a stupid mistake
A stupid mistake

A stupid mistake
she means nothing to me
(nothing to me)
I swear every word is true
don´t wanna lose you

The situation got out of hand
I hope you understand

It can happen to..
Anyone of us, anyone you think of
Anyone can fall
Anyone can hurt someone they love
Hearts will break
´Cause I made a stupid mistake
It can happen to..
Anyone of us, say you will forgive me
Anyone can fail
Say you will believe me
I can´t take my heart will break
´Cause I made a stupid mistake

Anyone can fall
Anyone can hurt someone they love
Hearts will break

 

´Cause I made a stupid mistake 
A stupid mistake

     葛瑞蓋斯已經很久沒有出專輯了,不過他之前留下的好歌還是很值得回味!!從小就患有"語言障礙"的Gareth,經過很長時間的努力去克服,然而,常常會緊張到說不出話來的Gareth對音樂卻可以毫無障礙的將一個字、一個字,仔細且用心的唱出來,和一般人無異,甚至是更真心、更讓人感動。

     《Say It Isn't So》可以聽到Gareth迷人的嗓音和豐沛的情緒。整首歌的層次分明,旋律與歌聲幾乎是融為一體,更重要的是用心的詮釋,讓整首歌的格局和魅力增加不少,聽著聽著,心中激盪的音符久久不能散去!!

      《Anyone of Us》應該是他的成名曲,當年我還在國中時,這首歌真的紅遍整個校園,這個記憶到現在還是很清晰,幾乎走到哪裡都可以聽到這熟悉的旋律。琅琅上口的歌詞,加上清澈、獨特的嗓音,讓一聽到這首歌的人幾乎都會愛上這首歌,也是他在歌壇的成名之作!!

 

       雖然很久沒有音樂作品,但是他在這幾年也參加了音樂劇的演出,除此之外,他還是『McGuire Programme』(註:一個語言治療機構,專門治療"口吃"等語言障礙的病患)的語言治療師,將自身的痛苦化作幫助別人的助力,奉獻於這個社會。

 

        很多歌手似乎只是將旋律、歌詞唱出來,沒有用心的去了解一首歌背後的故事;唯有歌唱者融入歌曲,將心中的感受唱出來才能叫做"唱歌",不論是"五音不全"或是"有語言障礙",用心還是能讓聆聽者感動不已,而Gareth Gates的例子就是最好的典範。

PS:未來還是會陸續介紹Gareth的經典歌曲或是新歌,請敬請期待!!
