Frank Turner公佈主打MV ‘The Way I Tend To Be’


每個人都有迷失方向卻固執前進的時候,就像 Frank Turner 在草地上漫無目的的挖洞,卻不知道正掉入自己設下的陷阱中,幸好那位女孩的出現讓 Frank 決定走出自己的坑洞。你找到那位特別的女孩了嗎?還是你仍在不停的挖洞?

Frank Turner 的第二首主打 MV ‘The Way I Tend To Be’ ,收錄在民謠搖滾歌手上個月發行的新專輯 ‘Tape Deck Heart’ 。

Frank Turner 日前將巡迴製作的一面旗幟放上 Ebay 拍賣,這面以專輯封面設計的旗幟在沒有 Frank 的幫忙下被歌迷帶到每個巡迴演出現場,Frank 表示:「這是個有趣的小試驗,我在第一場演出結束後把旗子送給台下的朋友,看看它能不能出現在我的每一場巡迴演出上,結果證明了雖然大家彼此不認識還是可以合力完成一件有意義的事情並且還能交到朋友。」這面旗幟最後以 3125 英鎊賣出全數捐給慈善收容機構 Shelter。

‘The Way I Tend To Be’ 歌詞

Some mornings I pray for evening,
For the day to be done.
Some summer days I hide away
And pray for rain to come.
It turns out hell will not be found
Within the fires below,
But in making do and muddling through
When you’ve nowhere else to go.

But then I remember you,
And the way you shine like truth in all you do.
And if you remembered me,
You could save me from the way I tend to be.

Some days I wake up dazed my dear,
And I don’t know where I am.
I’ve been running now so long I’m scared
I’ve forgotten how to stand.
I stand alone in airport bars
And gather thoughts to think:
That if all I had was one long road
It could drive a man to drink.

Because I’ve said I love you so many times that the words kinda die in my mouth.
And I meant it each time with each beautiful woman but somehow it never works out.
You stood apart in my calloused heart, and you taught me and here’s what I learned:
That love is about the changes you make and not just three small words.

And then I catch myself
Catching your scent on someone else
In a crowded space
And it takes me somewhere I cannot quite place.

–Janssen Lin
