Bon Jovi-Dry County:歌詞+翻譯

收錄在Bon Jovi的Keep The Faith專輯裡,
就好像所有人一樣,我們都為了追求夢想,
到最後獲得的幾乎都是絕望與失敗,
並不是所有人都能成功,沒有一件事情是絕對的,
或許絕望永遠都比成功多吧。
我們需要的是面對失敗的勇氣
遠比夢想成功還來的多不是嗎?

Across the border they turn water into wine
穿越邊界他們把水變成美酒
Some say it's the devil's blood
有人說那些美酒
They're squeezing from the vine
是他們從葡萄擠出的惡魔之血
Some say it's a saviour
有人卻說
In these hard and desperate times
這是艱困時期的拯救者
For me it helps me to forget
對我而言它可以讓我暫時忘記
That we're just born to die
我們是為了死亡而出生的

I came here like so many did
我像多數人一樣
To find the better life
為了找尋更好的生活而來到這裡
To find my piece of easy street
尋找富裕街道中屬於我的角落
To finally be alive
讓我能感受到自己還活著 
And I know nothing good comes easy
 我知道所有美好的事物得來不易
And all good things take some time
且美好的事物需要一些時間來得到
I made my bed I'll lie in it
在自己的床安祥
To die in it's the crime
死去是一件憾事

You can't help but prosper
你不用貢獻一己之力此地照樣繁榮
Where the streets are paved with gold
這裡的街道由黃金鋪成
They say the oil wells ran deeper herethan anybody's known
他們說這裡的油井比其他人想像的還要深
I packed up on my wife and kid
我把妻子、孩子送回家
And left them back at home
之後就回到這裡
Now there's nothing in this paydirt
現在這裡什麼也沒有
The ghosts are all I know
只有許多我熟識的鬼魂

Now the oil's gone
油已經被開採光了
The money's gone
錢也沒了
And the jobs are gone
連工作也沒有了
Still we're hangin' on Down in
卻只剩下我們還在這乾旱地方苦撐

Dry county
乾旱之郡
They're swimming in the sand
人們在沙漠中泅泳
Praying for some holy water
祈禱天降神聖之雨
To wash the sins from off our hand
以洗滌我們的罪
Here in dry county
在這乾旱之郡
The promise has run dry

Where nobody cries

In the blessed name of Jesus
「奉主耶穌之聖名」
I heard a preacher say
我聽見牧師說
That we are God's children
我們是神的子民
And He'd be back someday
總有一天祂會回來拯救我們
And I hoped that he knew
我希望牧師知道某些事情
Something as he drank his cup of wine
就像他懂得喝酒一樣
I didn't have too good of a feeling
晚上外出時
As I head out to the night
我的心情並沒有太好

I cursed the sky to open
我咒罵天空希望它能打開
I begged the clouds for rain
還向雲朵祈求雨水
I prayed to God for water
我的血管像被火燒一樣的難過
For this burning in my veins
因此我向神祈雨 
It was like my soul's on fire
那感覺就像靈魂在燃燒
And I had to watch the flames
但我卻只能眼睜睜地看著火舌將我吞噬
All my dreams went up in ashes
我所有的夢想被焚毀成為灰燼
And my future blew away
我的未來已被扼殺

Men spend their whole lives
人們花了他們的大半人生等待
Waiting praying for their big reward

But it seems sometimes

The payoff leaves you feeling

Like a dirty whore
你感覺自己是個污穢的妓女

If I could choose the way I'll die
假如我可以選擇死亡的方式
Make it by the gun or knife

Cause the other way there's too much pain

Night after night after night
一夜又一夜 一夜又一夜
