说散就散 (Being Apart)
作词 / Lyricist:张楚翘 (Cheung Cho Kiu)
作曲 / Composer:伍乐城 (Ronald Ng)
【”前任3:再見前任”電影主題曲】

抱一抱 就当作从没有在一起
Let’s give each other a hug,
And treat it as if we were never together
好不好 要解释都已经来不及
Would this be fine?
Since it’s too late for any explanation
算了吧 我付出过什么没关系
Forget it,
What I have sacrificed doesn’t matter
我忽略自己 就因为遇见你
I neglect myself,
Upon meeting you

没办法 好可怕 那个我 不像话
There’s no other solution, how scary
I was out of my own control
一直奋不顾身 是我太傻
Giving it all,
How foolish I was

说不上爱别说谎 就一点喜欢
That wasn’t love, don’t lie
That was just a droplet of affection
说不上恨别纠缠 别装作感叹
That wasn’t hatred, let’s stop the entanglement
Let’s shake off that act of regret
就当作我太麻烦 不停让自己受伤
Just treat it as I was being troublesome,
Looking for ways to hurt myself
我告诉我自己 感情就是这样
I told myself,
This is how a relationship is
怎么一不小心太疯狂
How we would accidentally fall into the world of craziness

抱一抱 再好好觉悟不能长久
Let’s give each other a hug,
And learn that this wouldn’t last
好不好 有亏欠我们都别追究
Would this be fine?
Let’s not pursue the debts that we owe each other
算了吧 我付出再多都不足够
Forget it,
However much I sacrifice, it would never be enough
我终于得救 我不想再献丑
I am finally saved from embarrassing myself

没办法 不好吗 大家都 不留下
There’s no other solution,
Isn’t it good that none of us had stayed?
一直勉强相处 总会累垮
Forcing ourselves to bear with each other,
We would eventually wear out

说不上爱别说谎 就一点喜欢
That wasn’t love, don’t lie
That was just a droplet of affection
说不上恨别纠缠 别装作感叹
That wasn’t hatred, let’s stop the entanglement
Let’s shake off that act of regret
就当作我太麻烦 不停让自己受伤
Just treat it as I was being troublesome,
Looking for ways to hurt myself
我告诉我自己 感情就是这样
I told myself,
This is how a relationship is
怎么一不小心太疯狂
How we would accidentally fall into the world of craziness

别后悔 就算错过
Let’s not regret,
Even if we missed each other
在以后 你少不免想起我
I will cross your mind in the future
还算不错
That doesn’t sound too bad
当我不在你会不会难过
Would you be sad when I’m no longer there?
你够不够我这样洒脱
I have let everything go,
Could you even do it?

说不上爱别说谎 就一点喜欢
That wasn’t love, don’t lie
That was just a droplet of affection
说不上恨别纠缠 别装作感叹
That wasn’t hatred, let’s stop the entanglement
Let’s shake off that act of regret
将一切都体谅 将一切都原谅
Let’s understand,
Let’s forgive
我尝试找答案 而答案很简单
I’ve tried to search for an answer,
Yet it was simple
简单得很遗憾
It was so simple that it was kind of a pity
因为成长 我们逼不得已要习惯
Because of growth,
We have to get used to it
因为成长 我们忽尔间说散就散
Because of growth,
We grew apart suddenly,
Helplessly.

【翻译感想】

这首歌很恐怖。为了去体会与了解歌词的意思,我将自己穿越回那段不告而别与一厢情愿的感情里。揭开伤疤是难受的,无限循环歌曲时仿佛被忧伤洗脑,那个从前的我从沉睡中苏醒,在被我关闭的心房里歇斯底里。受过情伤的,听这首歌时,千万别太入戏。

KKBOX一共有三个版本。最爱的是由作曲者伍乐城所编曲与制作,由Tia Ray(袁娅维)演唱的那个版本。这版本是电影“前任3:再见前任”的电影主题曲。但Tia Ray并非原唱。原唱是来自香港的JC(陈咏桐)。最近KKBOX又更新了一个由新加坡歌手何维健及潘嘉丽合唱的版本。

2016版:JC
2017版:Tia Ray
2018版:何维健&潘嘉丽

JC的演唱洒脱带点野蛮。虽然技巧很不错,但少了那种,真正明白为何成长会带走身边的人的味道与领悟。2016版的bass编的不错,但觉得2017版的更胜一筹。2018版加了一段电吉他独奏的桥段,挺特别的。2016与2018的编曲相同地大量使用爵士鼓来带动节奏,但个人觉得副歌偏高音域并不适合太多的钹(cymbals)这样的编曲会有点刺耳。

比起2016及2018版,2017版更显成熟稳重。Tia Ray勾灵的语气很适合此编曲。2017版中的大鼓与吉他带领着歌曲的主节奏,每次听见副歌中的大鼓,总有种心被重重敲击的感觉。轻轻的开头与沉重的收尾,就如那突如其来却无奈收场的爱情一样。
