Key:E Capo:4 Play:C

One… two…

C C C C Steal my heart… and hold my tongue I feel my time… my time has come

Let me in… unlock the door I never felt this way before

Am Fmaj7 C

And the wheels just keep on turning The drummer begins to drum

I don’t know which way I’m going I don’t know which way I’ve come

Hold my head… inside your hands I need someone… who understands

I need someone… someone who hears For you I’ve waited all these years

Fmaj7 C Fmaj7 C Am C Am Am/G C

For you I’d wait… ‘Til Kingdom Come Until my day… my day is done

and say you’ll come… and set me free just say you’ll wait… you’ll wait for me

In your tears… and in your blood In your fire… and in your flood

I hear you laugh… I heard you sing I wouldn’t change a single thing

And the wheels just keep on turning The drummers begin to drum

I don’t know which way I’m going I don’t know what I’ve become

For you I’d wait… ‘Til kingdom come

Until my days… my days are done

Say you’ll come… and set me free

Just say you’ll wait… you’ll wait for me

Just say you’ll wait… you’ll wait for me

Just say you’ll wait… you’ll wait for me

這就是Coldplay抒情歌曲厲害的地方

感想:

在《Yellow》的吉他刷絃和電吉他強烈的旋律線中,我跟全世界很多人一樣,記住了那個憂鬱、情感內斂的歌聲。然後是《The Scientist》,一開始簡單的鋼琴和絃,馬上讓人陷落在情感浪潮裡,那是無以名狀的情感,直到歌詞唱出來,短短幾個字所組成的句子,承載的是滿滿的悲傷和懊悔,很快的就可以把聽歌的人給淹没。

這就是Coldplay抒情歌曲厲害的地方:寫歌如同寫詩一般,一字一句很精簡,平淡的用語,沒有什麼故事情節,但是配上乾淨、濃妝艷抺恰如其分的音樂,卻可以深深的打動人心。

Coldplay的這個特色,我覺得在這一首Til Kingdom Come中,揮灑的淋漓盡致。

Still my heart and hold my tongue
I feel my time, my time has come
Let me in, unlock the door
I’ve never felt this way before

老實說,歌詞所描述的,是一個完全架空的世界。在那個世界,沒有特定的人、事、物,我無法確定它到底在講什麼、在講誰的故事。可是,我依然深深的著迷,在那幾個文字段落的世界裡面。

第一次聽這首歌,是在電影院裡的《蜘蛛人:驚奇再起》。一個突然擁有超能力的大學生,溜著滑板,越蕩越高,享受速度與玩弄地心引地的快感。當那躁動的吉他刷弦聲響起,我驚奇地發現,這樣的一部超人動作電影中,也可以聽到Coldplay的歌聲,而且看著電影院大螢幕的畫面,是可以美的讓所有的觀眾屏息。

For you I’d wait ’til kingdom come
Until my days, my days are done
And say you’ll come and set me free
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me.

究竟在等待誰:等待力大無窮的人?等待現身救贖的人?

等待所愛的人……

超人動作電影中也可以聽到Coldplay的歌聲
