Alone Again(Naturally) - Gilbert O'Sullivan

아일랜드 싱어송라이터 길버트 오설리반(Gillbert O'sullivan) 이 발표한 곡.

밝고 경쾌한 분위기지만 가사 내용은 슬프기 짝이 없는 노래

Naturally(당연하게도)라는 부제가 붙어있다.

1972년 두번째 엘범인 Back to Front 와 같은때 발표한 싱글곡으로 발표 후 빌포드 차트에서 6주간 1위를 할정도로 큰 인기를 자랑했다.

잔잔하고 경쾌한 음률로 추억을 회상하거나 상처를 치유하는 치유계곡으로 알려져 있지만 [1] 그런 멜로디와는 달리 가사가 암울한게 한 가수가 자살하기 전의 계획과 부모님의 죽음에 대해 말하는 곡이다.

심지어 BC카드의 광고에까지 쓰이면서 가사 내용을 아는 사람을 폭소케 했다.위키백과


Alone Again

(또다시 혼자예요)

In a little while from now

If I'm not feeling any less sour

I promise myself to treat myself

And visit a nearby tower

And climbing to the top will throw myself off

(조금 뒤에도

내 기분이 나아지지 않는다면

나 자신에게 약속했죠

근처 탑에 가서

꼭대기에 올라가서

몸을 던져버릴 거라고)

In an effort to make it clear to whoever

What it's like when you're shattered

Left standing in the lurch at a church

Where people saying: "My God, that's tough"

"She stood him up"

"No point in us remaining"

"We may as well go home"

As I did on my own

Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday

I was cheerful, bright and gay

Looking forward to who wouldn't do

The role I was about to play?

But as if to knock me down

Reality came around

And without so much as a mere touch

Cut me into little pieces

Leaving me to doubt

Talk about God in His mercy

Who if He really does exist

Why did He desert me?

In my hour of need

I truly am indeed

Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts

Broken in the world that can't be mended

Left unattended

What do we do? What do we do?

Alone again, naturally

Beach Club Records - Bandcamp

Looking back over the years

And whatever else that appears

I remember I cried when my father died

Never wishing to hide the tears

And at sixty-five years old

My mother, God rest her soul

Couldn't understand why the only man

She had ever loved had been taken

Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken

Despite encouragement from me

No words were ever spoken

And when she passed away

I cried and cried all day

Alone again, naturally

Alone again, naturally
