你生命中一定有一首那樣的歌。只要音樂響起,甚至只是聽到過門的第一個音節,就會毫無抵抗力的停下手邊所有的動作,腦袋頓時一片空白,或者情緒潰堤氾濫。

也許我總是太敏感。曾經演過對手戲的資深男演員sunny在msn上說,一接觸就知道我是個很敏感的女生。我大驚失色的告訴友人T,他不以為然的說敏感是每個女子的特質,就好像男人有老二一樣。說一個女生敏感,差不多就說一個男人有老二一樣百發百中。

只是這句話在泰國不一定成立喔。不過我是女生我自己也清楚,除了敏感,女生另一個特質是,總在最不適合的時候耍敏感,搞得局面更加混亂。

昨天下午回公司邊工作邊聽電臺,Cherie FM播了Beverley Craven的Promise Me。我有點恍惚。許多年前的許多深夜,我曾在無人的鋼琴教室敲著琴鍵唱這首歌,一遍遍唱︰Promise me, you'll wait for me, 'cos I'll be saving all my love for you....

如今想來當初那些閉目哽咽眼淚鼻涕齊飆椎心泣血的樣子,最後免不了要俯在鋼琴上無力嘆息的安靜結尾,好像舊相館擅長的「勿忘影中人」那種老派而做作的姿勢,更像雙秦雙林時代愛情文藝大悲劇的某一幕。只是少了總是默默守候女主角的男主角好友在窗外觀望心疼,如果有也不見得是人。灑狗血但真實,可笑還有點可悲。我們現在也許比較酷,但當初那般落伍卻似乎比較快樂。

如這世界的喜好潑希望冷水的運作定理,有關這首歌背後的故事與男主角始終沒有留下來。也因為這個故事,我告訴自己別再對任何人說︰Promise me這三個字。別人輕輕應承再容易不過,卻將百倍萬倍的加註在自己心上,咎由自取的奇重負擔。在這個扭曲的世代,陳世美的數量遠遠多於王寶釧。

美麗的歌還是值得一聽再聽的,不會因為相關不堪過往而扣分。Beverley Craven的Promise Me原版MV請這裡



Beverley Craven - Promise Me(網友自製MV)

You light up another cigarette
and I pour the wine
It's four o'clock in the morning
and it's starting to get light
now I'm right where I want to be
losing track of time
but I wish that it was still last night

You look like you're in another world
but I can read your mind
how can you be so far away
lying by my side
when I go away I'll miss you
and I will be thinking of you
every night and day just ...

Promise me you'll wait for me
'cos I'll be saving all my love for you
and I will be home soon
Promise me you'll wait for me
I need to know you feel the same way too
and I'll be home, I'll be home soon

When I go away I'll miss you
and I will be thinking of you
every night and day just ...



Beverley Craven - Holding On

I'm losing control of my emotions
You've got this hold on my heart
I've never known what we are feeling
You never took me so far

I can't find the words
Is this love?
Tell me I've found you
Is this love?
Say that you'll always keep
Holding on, keep holding on
'cos your love's got a hold on me
Holding on, keep holding on
Yeah...

I'm losing my mind
dreaming about you
still as you sleep by my side
kiss me awake,
whisper Good Morning
say what you said
one more time
'cos I need to know
