[About this song]
最近愛上了美國在2004已經播畢的影集《六人行》(Friends),每晚一集伴我歡喜入眠,其主題曲《I'll Be There For You》是由The Rembrandts演唱,The Rembrandts由Danny Wilde和Phil Solem兩人組成,不過他們的唱片好像沒有在台灣發行。
這首歌收錄在The Rembrandts1995出版的專輯《L.P.》專輯裡,據說因為《六人行》的廣大收視群,讓這張專輯銷售的大紅大紫;同年九月才因播放熱潮減退而以雙單曲呈現。


[The song from Youtube]

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your jobs a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month,
or even your year
but..

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

You're still in bed at ten
And work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast
So far... things are goin' great

Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
Oh but she didn't tell you when the world has brought
You down to your knees that...

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Seems you're the only one who knows
What it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with
Make it through all the rest with
Someone I'll always laugh with
Even at my worst I'm best with you, yeah

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month,
or even your year...

I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...

I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
'Cuz you're there for me too...
 

[About the lyrics]
1. "D.O.A."是Dead On Arrival,送醫時已死亡。歌詞中"love life's D.O.A"是指戀愛壽命短暫,還來不及進展就結束了!

2. "second gear"是車子二檔,二檔是一個慢速檔,所以汽車如果掛在二檔,就無法迅速前進了,就好像生活沒有變化,沒有進展。

3. "pour"是傾瀉的意思,雨傾瀉而出就是下傾盆大雨囉!

4. "bring someone down to one's knees"本意是指「迫使某人屈服」,是一種比喻的意義,例如:The country was almost brought to its knees by the long strike.(長期的罷工使這個國家瀕臨崩潰的邊緣。)歌詞是說,老天故意和你做對,非讓你屈服不可,但是不管怎麼樣,還有像我這樣的朋友會在你身邊支持著你。
