在我多年的駐唱生涯,有幾首西洋歌曲,是從一開始就放在我專用的歌本裡,一直到駐唱生涯結束,都沒有換過的曲子,這樣的西洋歌曲,不會超過十五首,因為一場演唱大約是十四首歌,而Lying eyes正是那其中的一首,原因有二點,第一是我喜歡它民謠式輕快的旋律,其次是它的歌詞涵意,到三十年後的今天依然適用,不曾改變,即使是滄海桑田,仍不會改變,Eagles來詮釋這首歌,再合適不過了。

Lying eyes     Eagles

City girls just seem to find out early
How to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man and she won't have to worry
She'll dress up all in lace and go in style

Late at night a big old house gets lonely
I guess every form refuge has its price
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice

So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who's feeling down
But he knows where she's going as she's leaving
She is headed for the cheating side of town

*You can't hide your lying eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you'd realize
There ain't no way to hide your lying eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting
With firey eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating
Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

She rushes to his arms, they fall together
She whispers it's only for a while
She swears that soon she'll be coming back forever
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile (*)

She gets up and pours herself a strong one
And stares out at the stars up in the sky
Another night - it's gonna be a long one
She draws the shade and hangs her head and cries

She wonders how it ever got this crazy
She thinks about a boy she knew in school
Did she get tired, or did she just get lazy
She's so far gone, she feels just like a fool

My, oh my
You sure know know how to arrange things
You set it up so well, so carefully
Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things
You're still the same old girl you used to be (*)

 

說謊的眼神    老鷹合唱團

都會女孩很早就知道
用微笑就能登堂入室
只要能釣到有錢的老頭,什麼都不用煩惱
她會打扮得滿身綴飾,時髦有型

夜深了,豪宅大院顯得孤寂
我想每一種型式的庇護都得付出代價
想起她那唯一的愛,她就傷心
竟給了一個雙手冷酷如冰的男子

 

她告訴他,今晚她得出門
去安慰一位心情沮喪的老友
出門時,他很清楚她的去向
她欺騙他,到了城的另一邊去

你掩飾不了你那說謊的眼神
你的笑容是淺淺的偽裝
我想你應該明白
你根本無法掩飾你說謊的眼神

城的另一邊,有個男孩在等著
有著火熱的雙眼和偷不走的夢想
她充滿期待的徹夜開車
因為,他讓她有一種似曾相識的感覺

 
她撲向他的懷裡,兩人倒成一團
她輕聲細語著,過了一會兒
她發誓說很快就會回來
給他一個微笑,然後離開

她起身,給自己倒了一杯烈酒
抬頭凝視著天上繁星
又一個夜晚,一個漫長的夜晚
她拉上窗簾,然後垂下頭哭了起來

她思忖著:怎會如此瘋狂?
想起了唸書時認識的一個男孩
她是倦了?還是懶了?
這次真的玩過火了,覺得自己好傻

老天!
你當然知道如何安排
你計畫得如此週詳細心
但可笑的是,你的新人生沒什麼改變
你還是從前的那個女孩
