【熊貓人音樂】乘著自由的風,盡情飛翔 Walk On

Who will only fly, only fly for freedom — U2

歡迎來到熊貓人的音樂世界,潘德曼第一篇文章要介紹給大家的是我最喜歡的樂團之一,來自愛爾蘭的搖滾天團 U2 ,和他們一首充滿生命能量的歌曲 Walk On。

U2 是一個來自愛爾蘭的搖滾樂團,成軍至今已經走過了30幾個年頭,總專輯銷售量突破1.5億張,榮獲22個葛萊美獎項,還被 Rolling Stone 滾石雜誌列為 “100 Greatest Artists of All Time " 的第22名,甚至在世界博覽會裡的愛爾蘭館,幾乎全都是 U2 的身影呢!

現在,讓我們一起來欣賞這首收錄於2001年葛萊美年度專輯 " All That You Can’t Leave Behind" 的年度歌曲 “Walk On"

And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can’t leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it’s a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, walk on
What you got they can’t steal it
No they can’t even feel it
Walk on, walk on…
Stay safe tonight

You’re packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

Walk on, walk on
What you’ve got they can’t deny it
Can’t sell it, can’t buy it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Home… hard to know what it is if you’ve never had one
Home… I can’t say where it is but I know I’m going home
That’s where the hurt is

I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Leave it behind
You’ve got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you steal
All this you can leave behind
All that you reason
All that you sense
All that you speak
All you dress up
All that you scheme…

Dedicated to Aung San Suu Kyi

除了身為全球知名的樂團外,U2 的團員們也很關心國際的議題和關懷活動,主唱 Bono 更是經常參與世界各地人權組織的聚會或活動,而這首 Walk On 就是向緬甸的民主鬥士翁山蘇姬致敬的作品。

Walk On 所訴說的是種拋開一切枷鎖,為了自由而豪邁地大步向前進的豁達精神。我想人生也是如此,每個人都有個獨一無二只屬於自己的故事,所以放開那些既有的價值觀和期待吧!我們應該為了自己而活,追尋每個人心中的自由,讓生命充滿驚奇,讓整個人生變成一本精采的故事書,讓每個閱讀過的人都覺得非常精彩。

生命只有一次,如果還要活得不自由,那不就像一條平平的心電圖曲線,等於死亡了嗎?所以就勇敢地向前,像 U2 唱得一樣勇敢地 Walk On 吧!

說點什麼吧!
