kiss and say goodbye~~Manhattans


雖然「曼哈頓」也會採用別人的作品,但由於幾位團員本身具有創作的才華,因此他們有許多歌曲都是自己的作品。在創作方面表現最活躍的Winfred “Blue” Lovett(布魯拉維特)就經常不斷的構思,而且嘗試使用龐大的編曲來表現,不過有時候也會不了了之。他經常在睡夢中想到許多旋律,但總是因為太累了,而懶得起床把旋律記錄下來。有一天晚上,靈感再度浮現,由於感受太強烈了,他無法置之不理,因此他在凌晨三點鐘爬起來,以鋼琴伴奏,把所有的旋律與詞句都用錄音機記錄起來。這是一首抒情的慢歌,而他總認為,所有的慢歌都必須要有特別的意義。他想到自己和隊友們都曾經碰上過「三角戀愛」的困擾,於是以這個主題,寫成了「Kiss and Say Goodbye」,並且在第二天拿去跟隊友們分享,進而灌錄成唱片。問題是,哥倫比亞唱片並不是特別看好這首歌,甚至拖了十四個月才決定予以推出。

kiss and say goodbye~~Manhattans


[Spoken]

This has got to be the saddest day of my life,

I called you here today for a bit of bad news

I won't be able to see you anymore,

because of my obligations,

and the ties that you have

We've been meeting here everyday,

and since this is our last day together

I wanna hold you just one more time,

when you turn and walk away,

don't look back

I wanna remember you just like this,

let's just kiss and say goodbye  

I had to meet you here today,

there's just so many things to say

Please don't stop me till I'm through,

this is something I hate to do

We've been meeting here so long,

I guess what we done, oh was wrong

Please darling, don't you cry,

let's just kiss and say goodbye

Many months have passed us by,

I'm gonna miss you, I can't lie

I've got ties,and so do you,

I just think this is the thing to do

It's gonna hurt me, I can't lie,

maybe you'll meet, you'll meet another guy

Understand me, won't you try,

let's just kiss and say goodbye

I'm gonna miss you, I can't lie,

understand me, won't you try

It's gonna hurt me, I can't lie,

take my handkerchief, wipe your eyes

Maybe you'll find, you'll find another guy,

let's kiss and say goodbye,

pretty baby Please, don't you cry,

understand me, won't you try,

let's just kiss and say goodbye
