lyrics

My first little picture show,
I remember well.
Cowboys and country songs
Came when I was twelve.

(But) maybe I was half that age
In a sandbox listening to a record play
Times are windows
For passing by

It happened just this morning
I was standing in the stairs.
Paper butterflies
Were hanging in the air.

You never sing happy songs
And yet you smile all the time that we’ve known
It seems like something happened back then.
I can see it in the lines in your skin
I believe that all the happy endings aren’t found
But with patience are made.
My mama said that we were cursed
And so she cried.
The spirit world can’t be reversed
So we all must die

I totally shook it off,
It’s in the mind’s eye that you become strong
I tried to help her understand,
But in the end she would not take a helping hand
You never sing happy songs
And yet you smile all the time that we’ve known
It seems like something happened back then.
I can see it in the lines in your skin
I don’t believe you have to tell me
Anything you don’t want to say
I believe that all the happy endings aren’t found
But with patience are made.

我人生的第一篇风景画
至今还那样记忆犹新
牛仔和乡村音乐
在我十二岁的时候第一次进入了我的生命

也许还在那半小的年纪里
我在沙盘中就曾听到过唱针机的声音
时间就像窗户一样
一幕幕的穿越了过往

思绪凝结在这天清晨
我驻立在半空的楼梯中
纸蝴蝶们
在风中缓缓地飘荡

你从未唱起欢悦的歌
可我知道你的内心却总是充满了微笑
记忆就这样井然地回放着

我能清楚地看见岁月在你脸上吻过的印迹
我相信这个世界根本就没有梦想中的完美结局
除非一直耐心的寻找下去
我妈妈曾经告诉我 我们生来就是被诅咒过的灵魂
说完她开始默默地哭泣
精神的世界永无逆向
我们也终究无法逃离死亡

我努力地挣脱这一切
心灵之眼开始愈发明亮
我试图让她明白这种感受,
但直到最后她也不愿接过我希望的援手

你从未唱起欢悦的歌
可我知道你的内心却总是充满了微笑

记忆就这样井然的回放着
我能清楚的看见岁月在你脸上吻过的印迹
我无法相信你不得不告诉我的

那些与你违心而驰的言语
我相信这个世界根本就没有梦想中的完美结局
除非一直耐心的寻找下去
