The Phantom of the Opera

phantom
今天終於拿到在網路上買的 "The Phantom of the Opera",由Sarah Brightman主唱的雙CD版了,雖然之前電影炒的很熱,不過我對於電影版本一直興趣缺缺,還是很想念國中時代聽的這個版本,所以最近就把他買下來了。

一邊聽就想起以前,跟初戀的男朋友一起,用隨身聽聽著從CD拷貝下來的錄音帶,因為錄音帶時間不夠長,所以兩片中間還會斷,然後假裝沒看到回家的公車,兩人都想一直聽下去的感覺。在那個一般人家裡還不會買CD PLAYER的時代,那捲我自己又再拷貝過來的錄音帶我聽了又聽,某一些喜歡的段子我都可以背著唱出來,像Meg和Christine的對唱,我還可以裝不同的聲音來唱。一直最喜歡的是Christine唱的Think of me,每次聽Sarah Brightman清亮的歌聲,就會有一種進入另外一種世界的感覺。但最讓我揪心的一首歌是Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again,到現在自己再唱,或是再聽到這首歌,都會有一種想要抓住些什麼的感覺。

大概也是因為這些音樂承載了太多的回憶,所以那麼多年我一直沒有買下,到了今年我才想,再不收未來會不會不容易找了,拜今年有電影所賜,所以這個版本也被炒熱起來,不過買到的已經是再製的版本,跟以前版本樣子和裝訂有一些些的不同。

聽說明年歌劇魅影將要來台演出,到時候應該會非常轟動吧!但是聽說因為成本非常的高,所以有可能門票會在5000元左右都有可能,如果有機會又負擔的起,真的好想要看一次舞台劇喔!如果台灣的看不到,或許未來有機會出國的時候,能夠安排看一次真正的舞台演出。

Think of me, think of me fondly, when we've said goodbye.
Remember me once in a while - please promise me you'll try.
When you find that, once again, you long to take your heart back and be free
If you ever find a moment, spare a thought for me...
We never said our love was evergreen, or as unchanging as the sea -
but if you can still remember, stop and think of me...
Think of all the things we've shared and seen
- don't think about the things which might have been...
Think of me, think of me waking, silent and resigned.
Imagine me, trying too hard to put you from my mind.
Recall those days, look back on all those times,
think of the things we'll never do -
there will never be a day, when I won't think of you...
Can it be? Can it be Christine?
What a change! You're really not a bit the gawkish girl that once you were...
She may not remember me, but I remember her...
We never said our love was evergreen, or as unchanging as the sea
but please promise me, that sometimes, you will think of me!

Lyrics: Charles Hart

You were once
my one companion...
you were all
that mattered...
You were once
a friend and father-
then my world
was shattered...
Wishing you were
somehow here again...
wishing you were
somehow near...
sometimes it seemed,
if I just dreamed,
somehow you would
be here...
Wishing I could
hear your voice again...
knowing that I never would...
Dreaming of you
won't help me to do
All that I dream I could...
Passing bells
and sculpted angels,
cold and monumental,
seem,for you
the wrong companions-
you were warm and gentle...
Too many years
fighting back tears...
Why can't the past
just die...?
Wishing you were
somehow here again...
knowing we must
say goodbye...
Try to forgive...
teach me to live...
give me the strength
to try...
No more memories,
no more silent tears...
No more gazing across
the wasted years...
Help me say goodbye...
Help me say goodbye.
