SoKo - I Thought I Was An Alien (2012)

 

 

SoKo本名Stéphanie Sokolinski1986年出生於法國波爾多(Bordeaux)

原為演員,私底下喜歡玩票性質創作歌曲並上傳至myspace網站,

一首 I’ll Kill Her〉被丹麥一家電台撥出意外走紅,自此踏上歌手一途。

  

2012年推出首張專輯《I Thought I Was An Alien》

她的音樂主要以民謠(Folk)為基底,

歌詞並無過於艱澀的詞彙,說唱青春的直白。

 

First Love Never Die

 

i feel like walking

do you feel like coming

i feel like talking coz

it's been a long time

 

now your hair is long

and you look so thin

you're always so pale

but something has changed

you're almost a man

 

4 years and i still cry sometimes

first love never die

4 years and i still cry sometimes

first love never die

 

long time no see

long time wondering

what you were doing

who you were seeing

i wish i could go back to it

 

i feel like walking

do you feel like coming

i feel like talking coz

it's been a long time

 

4 years and i still cry sometimes

first love never die

4 years and i still cry sometimes

first love never die

 

can you feel the same

i will never love again

 

直率地說出想回到初戀時的美好,又懷有回不去的哀傷。

I Thought I Was An Alien

 

we met one day

where i thought

i was an alien

i told you

to get a costume

and dance with me

like an alien

 

you told me that

you were not

quite a good dancer

i told you that

i think it doesn't matter

we would just look

dumber than we think we were

 

then you look at me

as if i was a freak

but you said you like

freaky people

so i thought you might

like me a little bit

 

we met one day

where i thought i was an alien

i told you to get a costume

and dance with me

like an alien

and you did

and you did
