A Long December

Counting Crows - A Long December

In my room Nov 5のエントリーにあるように

あたしの 年末のテーマソングは2002年以来ずっと、
カウンティングクロウズの”A Long December"、そろそろこの曲のリフレインが
ココロのなかで鳴りはじめている。

 

洋楽に疎い(女性アーティストならいくつかあるけれど、Toriがメインだし…)わたしとしては、祥子さんのカバーする歌や、好きなアーティストの歌、というのは洋楽との接点でもあります。


こういう歌を聴いたら、ああもう今年も終わっていくのだなぁという気持ちになってきました。

A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember the last thing that you said as you were leavin'
Now the days go by so fast
And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven...I wish you would
The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl
And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California...I think you should
Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her
And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
And it's one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean...I guess I should
