“Don’t Cry”收錄於美國硬式搖滾樂隊Guns N’ Roses於1991年發行的專輯“Use Your Illusion I & II”。 “Don’t Cry”這首經典英文歌曲在推出的時候大獲好評,並先後打進了英國、美國、愛爾蘭、芬蘭、新西蘭、挪威、澳大利亞、丹麥及瑞士各國的音樂榜單。

“Don't Cry”歌曲細味

一千個人眼中,有一千個哈姆雷特,不知道“Don’t Cry”這首歌在大家的眼中,又有甚麼特別的含義呢?有人說,同樣由Andy Morahan執導的“Don’t Cry”, “November Rain”,和“Estranged”是承上啟下的三部曲。然而,不管怎樣,Les Paul厚重而樸實的音色,確實為“Don’t Cry”這首歌增添了80年代的沉浸感。

人與人之間終究會漸行漸遠?“Don’t Cry”這首歌給大家的感覺,或許就如MV的開首一般,有著枯藤老樹昏鴉的滄涼,甚或腦海中會浮現起拿著烈酒在雪地裡獨個賣醉的畫面。而當酒入愁腸,或許你會感受到如附骨之疽的生活壓力,同時亦回想起與伴侶經歷的點點滴滴。

If we could see tomorrow, what of your plans?
I was the one who was washing blood off your hands.
Knowing your love’s decided, and all love is real?

就如歌曲的第一句一樣,你不禁想起,如果當初,你們一直愛下去,現在會是怎樣的模樣?曾經的你,能夠撫平他的一切傷痛;如今的你,卻成為了他傷口上的一把鹽。

「相識、了解、相愛、深愛、誤解、疏遠、執爭、分開」初識的你們,每天朝夕相對;而現在的你們,卻慢慢漸行漸遠。在夜闌人靜的時候,你甚至會想起,彼此之間的感情,是真實的存在?還是偶爾間的霧水情緣?

I thought I could live in your world.
As years all went by, with all the voices I’ve heard.
Something has died.

儘管你奮力掙扎,試圖挽回一切,最後卻發現無所用功。因為感情是相向的。你只能不斷的幻想,回憶過去的酸甜苦辣。時間流逝,慢慢你也習慣了這種滋味。或者,人與人之間,只是彼此間的過客。雖然最後始終會漸行漸遠,但雙方能夠在生命線上互相重疊,已經是莫大的緣分。

So many seem so lonely with no one left to cry to
Don’t you cry tonight
There’s a heaven above you baby

孤獨的靈魂在尋找慰藉,或許當你抬頭一望,你會發現天堂之門,就在你的眼前。先破而後立,浴火重生的你,發現其實世界上,並沒有任何一個人是不可或缺的。

“Don't Cry”完整歌詞

If we could see tomorrow, what of your plans?
No one can live in sorrow, ask all your friends.
Times that you took in stride, they’re back in demand.
I was the one who was washing blood off your hands.

Don’t you cry tonight, I still love you, baby.
Don’t you cry tonight, don’t you cry tonight,
There’s a heaven above you baby, and don’t you cry tonight.

I know the things you wanted, they’re not what you have
With all the people talking, it’s driving you mad
If I was standing by you, how would you feel
Knowing your love’s decided, and all love is real? Baby

Don’t you cry tonight, don’t you cry tonight.
Don’t you cry tonight, there’s a heaven above you baby.
And don’t you cry tonight.

I thought I could live in your world.
As years all went by, with all the voices I’ve heard, something has died.
And when you’re in need of someone, my heart won’t deny you,
So many seem so lonely with no one left to cry to, baby.

And Don’t you cry tonight, don’t you cry tonight
Don’t you cry tonight, there’s a heaven above you baby,
And don’t you cry, don’t you ever cry, don’t you cry tonight,
Baby, Maybe, Someday.
Don’t you cry, don’t you ever cry, don’t you cry,
Tonight
