Diana Krall: Let's Face The Music And Dance



There may be trouble ahead
But while there's moonlight and music
And love and romance
Let's face the music and dance

Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill
And while we still
Have the chance
Let's face the music and dance

Soon
We'll be without the moon
Humming a diff'rent tune
And then

There may be teardrops to shed
So while there's moonlight and music
And love and romance
Let's face the music and dance
Dance
Let's face the music and dance

邈雲漢曰:

這首歌幾乎句句一語雙關。關鍵在歌名裡。

"face the music" 在英文裡是個成語,是「面對現實」的意思。
"dance" 除了跳舞外還暗示了各種交互作用,包括打架。好萊塢的動作片裡,有時在開打前,會有人說"Let's dance."

因此,這首歌暗示了「讓我們面對現實來交往」。而現實是甚麼呢?是樂隊快開溜了;是侍者快要我們付帳單了。我們在一起的時間不多了,讓我們面對這個現實來及時行樂吧!縱使前方可能有險阻。
