Eminem – When I’m Gone

Curtain Call: The Hits

迄今为止,他所发行过的四张专辑中的三张都成功夺得了美国 Billboard 200 专辑榜的冠军,成绩最“差”的《The Slim Shady》LP也只是离登顶仅一步之遥。在第四张录音室专辑《Encore》推出一年之后,这位据说已经萌生退意的白人说唱奇才发行了说张个人精选集《Curtain Call: The Hits》。本张精选在发行之后的首周在全美的销量达到44万1千张,使 Eminem 第四次夺得 Billboard 200 专辑榜的桂冠。

本张精选集的再次登顶充分显示出 Eminem 依然拥有超强的号召力。除了《Stan》,《Lose Yourself》和《The Real Slim Shady》等多首 Eminem 的代表曲目以外,本张精选集还收录了三首全新的歌曲《Fack》,与Nate Dogg合作的《Shake That》和《When I’m Gone》。

另外,尤其值得注意的是,最后一首《Stan》选的就是Eminem与英国钢琴诗人艾尔顿·约翰(Elton John)在2001年格莱美颁奖礼上合作的现场版本。这位骂遍天下无敌手的坏小子到目前为止共获得过九次格莱美奖,前三张个人专辑也均获得格莱美最佳说唱专辑奖,而去年发行的第四张个人专辑也将参加今年格莱美奖的角逐。

从今年夏天 Eminem 因病推出巡演开始,有关他退出乐坛的传闻就从来没有中断过。在本张精选集的一首新歌《When I’m Gone》当中,Eminem 的歌词似乎在暗示人们他真的有可能会退出,至少也会是一段时间的休息。正如本张精选集的封面,“演出”结束了,幕布拉上了,玫瑰花散落了一地……不知道已经声称厌恶了无止境的忙碌的 Eminem 是不是真的准备将自己演艺生涯的幕布拉上呢?(KFC MAN)

Eminem – When I’m Gone

[Introduction]
Yeah…
It’s my life…
My own words I guess…
?
[Verse 1]
Have you ever loved someone so much, you’d give an arm for?
Not the expression, no, literally give an arm for?
When they know they’re your heart
And you know you were their armour
And you will destroy anyone who would try to harm ‘her
But what happens when karma, turns right around and bites you?
And everything you stand for, turns on you, despite you?
What happens when you become the main source of her pain?
“Daddy look what I made”, Dad’s gotta go catch a plane
“Daddy where’s Mommy? I can’t find Mommy where is she?”
I don’t know go play Hailie, baby, your Daddy’s busy
Daddy’s writing a song, this song ain’t gonna write itself
I’ll give you one underdog then you gotta swing by yourself
Then turn right around in that song and tell her you love her
And put hands on her mother, who’s a spitting image of her
That’s Slim Shady, yeah baby, Slim Shady’s crazy
Shady made me, but tonight Shady’s rocka-by-baby…
?
[Chorus]
And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back
And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back…
?
[Verse 2]
I keep having this dream, I’m pushin’ Hailie on the swing
She keeps screaming, she don’t want me to sing
“You’re making Mommy cry, why? Why is Mommy crying?”
Baby, Daddy ain’t leaving no more, “Daddy you’re lying
“You always say that, you always say this is the last time
“But you ain’t leaving no more, Daddy you’re mine”
She’s piling boxes in front of the door trying to block it
“Daddy please, Daddy don’t leave, Daddy – no stop it!”
Goes in her pocket, pulls out a tiny necklace locket
It’s got a picture, “this’ll keep you safe Daddy, take it withcha'”
I look up, it’s just me standing in the mirror
These fuckin’ walls must be talking, cuz man I can hear ’em
They’re saying “You’ve got one more chance to do right” – and it’s tonight
Now go out there and show that you love ’em before it’s too late
And just as I go to walk out of my bedroom door
It’s turns to a stage, they’re gone, and this spotlight is on
And I’m singing…
?
[Chorus]
And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back
And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back…
?
[Verse 3]
Sixty thousand people, all jumping out their seat
The curtain closes, they’re throwing roses at my feet
I take a bow and thank you all for coming out
They’re screaming so loud, I take one last look at the crowd
I glance down, I don’t believe what I’m seeing
“Daddy it’s me, help Mommy, her wrists are bleeding,”
But baby we’re in Sweden, how did you get to Sweden?
“I followed you Daddy, you told me that you weren’t leavin’
“You lied to me Dad, and now you make Mommy sad
“And I bought you this coin, it says ‘Number One Dad’
“That’s all I wanted, I just want to give you this coin
“I get the point – fine, me and Mommy are going”
But baby wait, “it’s too late Dad, you made the choice
“Now go out there and show ’em that you love ’em more than us”
That’s what they want, they want you Marshall, they keep.. screamin’ your name
It’s no wonder you can’t go to sleep, just take another pill
Yeah, I bet you you will. You rap about it, yeah, word, k-keep it real
I hear applause, all this time I couldn’t see
How could it be, that the curtain is closing on me
I turn around, find a gun on the ground, cock it
Put it to my brain and scream “die Shady” and pop it
The sky darkens, my life flashes, the plane that I was supposed to be on crashes and burns to ashes
That’s when I wake up, alarm clock’s ringin’, there’s birds singin’
It’s Spring and Hailie’s outside swinging, I walk right up to Kim and kiss her
Tell her I miss her, Hailie just smiles and winks at her little sister
Almost as if to say..
?
[Chorus/Outro]
And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back
And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back…

    他有一首写给歌迷的歌,说是歌迷追星发生车祸的 故事,很好听

    White America 是 2002年的夏季《The Eminem Show》专辑的第一首歌,我最喜欢.
    记得当年专辑刚发行,我去店里买,对店员说我找Eminem的新专辑,但是他听不懂我说的是谁,小日本的英文真是和传说中的一样栏啊.我只有指给他看,这张专辑放在店面里推荐区…..

    怎么听啊,这首歌实在太好听了。

  11. Sin

    我这个伪RAPPER一直都很喜欢阿姆,还是英文水平问题。看来我是要好好地学英语了。
