认真的--詹姆斯.芬顿

唤醒,警觉,
突然认真地艾伦,
你是一个惊奇。
我认识你很久了--
现在我几乎对视你的眼

不是这样的
我难为情或者害臊。
你改变了法则

我希望的方式,我没察觉到就改变了:傻瓜的希望。

让我很散步。
我拿报纸回来。
我认为你知道
我认为你有优势
可是即使如此我感觉快乐

那就是我为什么笑了。
那就是我踢着石子走了
我是认真的!
那就是我为什么侧手翻着回家。
这应该是有意义的事。是的,它是。Awake, alert,
Suddenly serious in love,
You're a surprise.
I've known you long enough —
Now I can hardly meet your eyes.

It's not that I'm
Embarrassed or ashamed.
You've changed the rules

The way I'd hoped they'd change Before I thought: hopes are for fools.

Let me walk with you.
I've got the newspapers to fetch.
I think you know
I think you have the edge
But I feel cheerful even so.

That's why I laughed.
That's why I went and kicked that stone.
I'm serious!
That's why I cartwheeled home.
This should mean something. Yes, it does.
