Birdy - Skinny Love (2011)

Birdy

全名為Jasmine Van den Bogaerde的Birdy,1996生於英國Lymington,受到鋼琴師母親的薰陶,自幼開始學琴,7歲即有了自己的作品。12歲時參加選秀比賽,以一首創作曲〈So Be Free〉奪得分組冠軍,得到一紙唱片約。首張同名專輯《Birdy》卻為翻唱大碟,利用其擅長的鋼琴彈奏為主軸,以動人的嗓音賦予歌曲新生命。〈Skinny Love〉翻唱自美國獨立民謠樂隊Bon Iver,鋼琴聲包覆著空靈嗓音,訴說苦澀的愛戀。

 

Birdy -〈Skinny Love〉


Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...
Right in the moment this order's tall

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
And in the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
And I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love, what happened here?
Suckle on the hope in light brassieres
My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted
Then who the hell was I?
Cause now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
Come on skinny love
My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...
My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...
