It's Not Living (If It's Not With You)

[Verse 1]
Danny ran into some complications
丹尼的一切混亂不堪
(Neil Young曾作歌曲The Needle and the Damage Done獻給成癮於海洛因的Danny Whitten)
He falls asleep during conversations
他的心不在這些對話
(一種海洛因成癮症狀)
He's gotta search the street when he's on vacation
放空的他只能到處尋找門路
(海洛因成癮的人只能依賴毒品交易人得到海洛因)
The worst thing is that I'm in the same situation
最糟的是我也在相同處境
(1975主唱Matty Healy深陷於海洛因成癮中)

[Chorus]
And all I do is sit and think about you
我能做的只有 坐下和思念
If I knew what you'd do
如果我知道你(海洛因)只會
Collapse my veins 
剝削我的血液
Wearing beautiful shoes
只會穿著漂亮鞋子到處溜噠
It's not living if it's not with you
我活不下去,如果活著沒有你

[Verse 2]
And Danny says we're living in a simulation
丹尼說我們深陷成癮的輪迴裡
But he works in a petrol station (selling petrol)
但他卻為古柯鹼工作(賣著古柯鹼)
(一般對在加油站工作的印象是隨便、不正經的,可對照最後一段get a job in a bank;petrol又代表古柯鹼 ,petrol station與selling petrol指靠古柯鹼交易滿足毒品的癮)
He says it all began with his operation
他說他的藥能讓人逃離痛苦
And I know you think you're sly but you need some imagination
我知道你很狡猾,但你需要一點想像力

[Chorus]
And all I do is sit and think about you
我能做的只有 坐下和思念
If I knew what you'd do
如果我知道你只會
Collapse my veins 
剝削我的血液
Wearing beautiful shoes
只會穿著漂亮鞋子到處溜噠
It's not living if it's not with you
我活不下去,如果活著沒有妳
All I do is sit and drink without you
我能做的只有 坐下和喝悶酒
If I choose then I lose
如果我的選擇只能失去
(選擇吸食毒品會因上癮而失去未來,而選擇不吸食卻會失去單純的快樂,無論如何選擇都是兩者皆輸的處境)
Distract my brain from the terrible news
只能讓腦袋放空,不去想那些壞消息
It's not living if it's not with you
我活不下去,如果活著沒有妳

[Bridge]
I can't stop sweating or control my feet
我無法停止流汗或控制顫抖的雙腿
I've got a twenty-stone monkey that I just can't beat
我只有沒有盡頭的責任與無法阻擋的成癮
I can stage a situation, but I just can't eat
只能待在原地,無法吞嚥
And there's a feeling, you're replacing embrace
不再有被擁抱的感覺

[Chorus]
It's true that, all I do is sit and think about you
這是真的,我能做的只有 坐下和思念
If I knew what you'd do
如果我知道你只會
Collapse my veins
剝削我的血液
Wearing beautiful shoes
只會穿著漂亮鞋子到處溜噠
It's not living if it's not with you
我活不下去,如果活著沒有你
All I do is sit and drink without you
我能做的只有 坐下和喝悶酒
(毒品成癮的Matty只能靠酒精取代藥物帶來的快樂)
If I choose then I lose
我能做的只有 坐下和喝悶酒
Distract my brain from the terrible news
只能讓腦袋放空,不去想那些壞消息
It's not living if it's not with you
我活不下去,如果活著沒有你

[Outro]
Oh, I'll try to get a job in a bank, I think
噢,我會試著在銀行找到工作,我想
(銀行的工作在世俗標準上是正經的工作,此處引申為步上正軌,Matty逐漸以工作為重,不再仰賴毒品)
Danny spent time trying to pack in the drinks for me
丹尼花了很多時間讓我買醉
I feel sick and I know I can't lose but
我病入膏肓,我知道我不能失去 但
It's not living if it's not with you, it's not, it's not
我活不下去,如果活著沒有你,活不下去,活不下去
It's not living if it's not with you, it's not, it's not
我活不下去,如果活著沒有你,活不下去,活不下去
It's not, it's not, It's not living if it's not with you
活不下去,活不下去,我活不下去,如果活著沒有你
It's not living if it's not with you, it's not, it's not
我活不下去,如果活著沒有你,活不下去,活不下去
It's not, it's not, it's not, it's not
活不下去,活不下去,活不下去,活不下去
It's not living if it's not with you
我活不下去,如果活著沒有你
