這首充滿愛爾蘭風情的歌曲,

讓人聽第一次就停不下來,

而它所描寫的高威女孩就是Niamh Dunne

「Niamh Dunne」的圖片搜尋結果

 

來自愛爾蘭的她為一名作曲家,

也是樂團Beoga裡的小提琴手,

只不過她並不來自高威,而是利莫里克,

也未嫁給一個英國男孩,她的丈夫是樂團裡的其中一個成員。

但她也讚頌Ed Sheeran的才華,

 

我很開心能扮演高威女孩,Ed Sheeran總是能把流行歌寫的扣人心弦

 

Becky覺得自己變品酒專家了XDDDD

 

 

She played the fiddle in an Irish band

You know she beat me at darts and then she beat me at pool

標槍與撞球,她都勝我一籌

And then she kissed me like there was nobody else in the room

無視外人目光,和我熱吻

As last orders were called was when she stood on the stool

一直到酒吧即將打烊,她仍佇立在小凳子上

After dancing to céilidh singing to trad tunes

盡情跳著愛爾蘭舞,唱著傳統民謠

I never heard *Carrickfergus ever sung so sweet

And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me

And now we've outstayed our welcome and it's closing time

早已超過了關門時間,我們早該離開

I was holding her hand, her hand was holding mine

可我只是握著她的雙手,她也握住我的

Our coats both smell of smoke, whisky and wine

我們的大衣上充滿著香菸和酒精的氣味

As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night

在冷清的大街上,吸著冷冽稀薄的空氣

I walked her home then she took me inside

To finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine

吃了點多力多滋,又忍不住綴了點酒

I swear I'm gonna put you in a song that I write
