心宥大樂團-- Matchbox 20 之 Rob Thomas' Her Diamonds

 Cradlesong這張專輯中的主打歌" Her Diamonds", 描述夫妻或者情侶之間,其中一半每天都在對抗病魔等心理以及生理上的痛苦,另外一半幫不上忙也痛在心理的心情. Rob Thomas把他日常生活所面對的事情放在歌裡面, 因為他老婆就在對抗紅斑性狼瘡, 也許因為如此他的歌詞簡單卻相當感人,使聽者很容易因為自己的經驗而感同身受.

        The album's first single, the kaleidoscopic “Her Diamonds,” is the most personal song Thomas has yet committed to disc. Rob's wife Marisol is courageously battling an autoimmune disease, and “Her Diamonds” was written “about a couple dealing with that on a day-to-day basis,” explains Thomas. “There's an incredible amount of sadness that comes with something like that. There are moments where I think I flirted with a thinner personal line than I've ever done before, but, really, I'm writing a song about how people deal with hard times, and that hard time is universal, that hard time can be anything.

It's a world he views with boundless optimism and, despite the occasionally discouraging lyric, Thomas infuses that same spirit into cradlesong. “I'm not a mopey person; I don't get satisfaction in heartache and despair. With the exception of a few things that start dark and stay dark, there's usually a hopefulness at the end of each song,” he says. “There has to be; it's the hopeful part that makes you want to share them with people. It's the hopeful part that says you found some secret in the pain and maybe some other people will, too.”

"Her Diamonds" by Rob Thomas

  Oh what the hell she says
I just can't win for losing
And she lays back down
Man there's so many times
I don't know what I'm doin'
Like I don't know now

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Says it's funny how the night
Can make you blind
I can just imagine
And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
But if she feels bad then I do too
So I let her be

And she says oooh
I can't take no more
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
Cuz I can't help her now
She's down in it
She tried her best and now she can't win it's
Hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She sits down and stares into the distance
And it takes all night
And I know I could break her concentration
Oh But it don't feel right

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Sits down on the bed and starts to cry
And there's something less about her
And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
So I sit down and I cry too
And don't let her see

And she says oooh
I can't take no more
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
Cuz I can't help her now
She's down in it
She tried her best and now she can't win it's
Hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She shuts out the night
Tries to close her eyes
If she can find daylight
She'll be all right
She'll be all right
Just not tonight

And she says oooh
I can't take no more
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
Cuz I can't help her now
She's down in it
She tried her best and now she can't win it's
Hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down
I can't take no more
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
Cuz I can't help her now
She's down in it
She tried her best and now she can't win it's
Hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

I can't take no more
Diamonds on the floor
No more no more
Diamonds falling down
I can't take no more
Diamonds on the floor
No more no more
No more
Diamonds falling down
I can't take no more
Diamonds on the floor
Diamonds fall oh the diamonds
Diamonds falling down

I can't take these diamonds falling down
