Grow Old With Me – Tom Odell
.
懂你西班牙语L5,呷一口酒。I can feel you breathing
With your hair on my skin
As we lie here within
The night
.
I’ll pull the sheets
When it’s cold on your feet
Cuz you’ll fall back to sleep
Every time
.
Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I
.
And our hands they might age
And our bodies will change
But we’ll still be the same
As we are
.
We’ll still sing our song
When our hair ain’t so blonde
And our children have sung
We were right
.
They’ll sing
Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I
.
And the hairs they stand up
And my feet start to thump
Yer the feeling is dreaming
Around
.
You’ll be the one
Make me hurt, make me come
Make me feel like I’m real
And alive
.
Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I
.
Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I

Tom Odell – Hold Me

JustJared: What’s your favorite song from your album Born To Die – The
Paradise Edition?

Jessica was 35 years old. She graduatedfrom middle school 20 years ago.
This year her middle school class had its 20thyear class forreunion.
All of herclassmates and teachers were invited to attend. It’s to going
to be held at thehotel, near where their school used to be. Like many
other buildings, theschool had been torn down. It had been replaced by
some of the apartmentbuildings.

《Make you feel my love》那首歌,大概很多个人都听过 Adele
和《中国好声音》的版本,可是也许没有多少人知晓那是 鲍伯 Dylan作词作曲的一首歌,今日偶然听到她的原唱,那种沧桑,那种中年男人愿意为了爱奋不顾身的勇气与背后的殷殷,是炫技派无论如何也难以知晓和突显出来的,那是唯有时间才能蒸馏出来的响动。

I shouldn’t say it but I’m starting to think I care
I’ve had a drink, you probably think my judgement is impaired
And it’s getting late now and we’re a long way from our homes
Before you leave, before you grieve, there’s one thing you should know
When you hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, yeah I can feel your heart
When you hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, yeah I can feel your heart beating
Suddenly I’m standing on a treetop up so high
And all the songs, and all the poems, suddenly they’re right
And I’m dumbfounded by the breadths of your self control
But I don’t care ’cause you’re here, and you and I both know
When you hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, yeah I’m picking out the stars
When you hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, yeah I can feel your heart beating
Oh when you hold me, hold me in your arms
Hold me, I can feel your heart
Hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Hold me, yeah I can feel your heart
When you hold me, hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, I can feel you heart
Oh when you hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, yeah I can feel your heart beating

Lana Del Rey: I really love “Cola”, and I love “Bel Air”. They both kind
of have a heavy West Coast influence, but still really sultry like
cinematic sweeping strings. But “Bel Air” feels the most personal to me,
and it’s the one that closes out the record.

At first, she wasn’t sure if she could goto the reunion. One reason was
that there wasn’t anyone in particular that shewanted to see. Another
reason was that she was very busy. She was a workingmother, with a boy 8
years old and her husband who was rarely at home. Going tothe reunion
meant that she would have to arrange someone to take care of thingswhile
she was away. That wouldn’t be easy. She didn’t want to take her boy
withher and her husband wouldn’ttake time

随着年纪增加,很多少人把人生这一杯黑茶,活成了一锅疙瘩汤,偶然撒点孜然和葱花;Bob迪伦却把温馨酿成一桶纯粹麦芽干邑酒,辣,但引人入胜。

Another Love – Tom Odell
.
I wanna take you somewhere so you know I care
But it’s so cold and I don’t know where
I brought you daffodils in a pretty string
But they won’t flower like they did last spring
.
And I wanna kiss you, make you feel alright
I’m just so tired to share my nights
I wanna cry and I wanna love
But all my tears have been used up
.
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
.
And if somebody hurts you, I wanna fight
But my hands been broken, one too many times
So I’ll use my voice, I’ll be so f*cking rude
Words they always win, but I know I’ll lose
.
And I’d sing a song, that’d be just ours
But I sang ’em all to another heart
And I wanna cry I wanna learn to love
But all my tears have been used up
.
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
.
I wanna sing a song, that’d be just ours
But I sang ’em all to another heart
And I wanna cry, I wanna fall in love
But all my tears have been used up
.
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
.

JJ: How auto-biographical are your songs?

off from work.

When the rain is blowin’ in your face

I know – Tom Odell
.
Cold hands, white light
Yellow lamps, on blackened skys
Duffel hoods and deep brown eyes
I’ll sing you a song that I think you’ll like
.
And we’ll walk the places we always go
A million faces that I don’t know
I’ll say the words you always hopes
Set our hearts racing even though
.
I know what you told me
I know that it’s all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling
.
I know what you told me
I know that it’s all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling on you
.
On the way you stand, on the way you sway
The way your hair curls in the rain
To the little lines that write your face
Or the winter nights you come and stay
.
Or the way you hit me when you wanna fight
The way you yearn the way you cry
The way our love rolls with the tides
But we know we’ll make up everytime
.
I know what you told me
I know that it’s all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling
.
I know what you told me
I know that it’s all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling on you
.
Won’t you bring me all the things that I need
Like falling rain to a rolling sea
Won’t you bring me all the things that I need
.
I know what you told me
I know that it’s all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling
.
I know what you told me
I know that its all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling on you
.
I know what you told me
I know that it’s all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling
.
I know what you told me
I know that it’s all over
I know I can’t keep calling
It’s just every time I run
I keep on falling on you

LDR: They are, I’d say 90%. Usually what happens is all of the verses
are always autobiographical up until the chorus. I usually leave some
room for my imagination to step in. If I’m singing about the way that
things used to be, by the time I get to the chorus I might start singing
about the way I wished that they had been.

Then she got a message from Sharon, one ofher classmates. Sharon was
contacting people from their class andurgingeveryone to come. In the
schooldays, she was class monitor, and now she was helping to organize
the reunion. Theyexchanged the messages and Jessica said she
couldn’tmake it. Then Sharon gave her a call and they talked for
almost anhour. Sharon really wanted her to come and so dida couple
of
Jessica’s old friends. They were all wondering how shewas doing.
None of them have seen or heard from her since graduation. They
wereespecially curious since she hadn’t gone to their first reunion 10
yearsbefore.

And the whole world is on your case

Sense – Tom Odell
.
Hard to know,
Maybe if I skim the stone,
Walk a different way back home,
It would all make sense.
.
Oh, shut my eyes,
Lose myself in teenage lies,
If I fell in love a thousand times,
Would it all make sense ?
.
Cause I,
I’ve been feeling pretty small,
Sometimes,
Feel like I’m slipping down walls,
And every line,
I ever get a hold,
It seems to break.
.
Ca-Call you up,
I can tell you just how much,
No, no maybe I’ll just get drunk,
And it will all make sense.
.
Oh If I weren’t so nice,
I convince my friends that you were right,
I can promise you my heart don’t cry,
Would it all make sense ?
.
Cause I,
I’ve been feeling pretty small,
Sometimes,
Feel like I’m slipping down walls,
And every lie,
I ever get a hold,
It seems to break.
.
Oh I,
I’ve been feeling pretty small,
Sometimes,
Feel like I’m slipping down walls,
And every lie,
I ever get a hold,
It seems to break.
.

JJ: Do you have favorite lyrics from any of the songs that you’ve ever
put out?

Jessica decided to arrange things so that

I could offer you a warm embrace

Can’t Pretend – Tom Odell
.
Love, I have wounds,
Only you can mend,
You can mend.
I guess that’s love,
I can’t pretend,
Can’t pretend.
.
Feel, my skin is rough,
But it can be cleansed,
Can be cleansed.
And my arms are tough,
But they can be bent,
Can be bent.
.
And I wanna fight,
But I can’t contend.
I guess that’s love,
I can’t pretend,
Can’t pretend.
.
Oh feel our bodies grow,
And our souls they blend.
Yeah love I hope you know,
How much my heart depends.
.
But I guess that’s love, I can’t pretend.
I guess that’s love, I can’t pretend.
.
Oh feel our bodies grow,
And our souls they blend.
Yeah love I hope you know,
how much my heart depends.
.
I guess that’s love, I can’t pretend.
I guess that’s love, I can’t pretend.
.

LDR: I like the juxtaposition of the verse and the chorus in Born to
Die. I like the idea of the verse, ‘Feet don’t fail me now, take me to
the finish line.’ That kind of feels like the struggle of every day life
and how hard things can be, but by the time I get to the chorus I sing,
‘Come and take a walk on the wild side, let me kiss you hard in the
pouring rain.’ I feel like it’s those two worlds of dark and light
coming together. The struggle of every day, but also feeling fleeting
moments of happiness and true love, and kissing in the rain.

she was

To make you feel my love.

Till I Lost – Tom Odell
.
A coffee stain on a window sill
A bad translation to a foreign film
Or just wondering round with you
Just wondering town with you
Oh oh oh oh
Would be enough
.
The tiny cracks on the city stone
A welcome back to your troubled home
Or just wondering round with you
Just wondering town with you
oh oh oh oh
Would be enough
.
But ohhhhhhhhhhhh
I didn’t see the sea until I crossed
Ohhhhhhhhh
And I didn’t feel your love until I lost
.
The moving shadows on your swaying light
Or you picture notes of porcupines
Or just wondering round with you
Just wondering town with you
Oh oh oh oh would be enough
.
But ohhhhhhhhhhhh
I didn’t see the sea until I crossed
Ohhhhhhhhh
And I didn’t feel your love until I lost

But ohhhhhhhhhhhh
I didn’t see the sea until I crossed
Ohhhhhhhhh
And I didn’t feel your love until I lost

didn’t get

And there is no one there to dry your tears

Sat on the rooftop
Watching the birds flying free
Watching the clouds walk
And watching the rain become the sea
Hearing my love talk
Every breath she ever breathes
Like it was always supposed to be like that
.
But then we broke up
And she went west and I went east
She got a new boyfriend
A little too soon if you’re asking me
I heard that she loves him
A litte bit more than she’ll ever love me
And it was always supposed to be like that
.
I look to the skyline
And said how many falls until I fly
Look to the old times and said
How many roads until I find
And oh it’s tough now
Cause love always, love always is unkind
.
I sat on the rooftop
And I watched the birds flying free
I watched the clouds walk
And I watched the rain become the sea
And just for a moment, just for a moment
I felt so free from all I’m supposed to be
.
I look to the skyline and said
How many falls until I fly
Look to the old times I said
How many roads until I find
And oh it’s tough now
Cause love always, love always is unkind

Long Way Down – Tom Odell

Walking on the rooftops
Talking of times
With our eyes a glowing
Like the city lights
She stands on the ledge,
She says, ‘it looks so high’
.
You know it’s a…
.
Long way down
Feels like a long way down
Feels like a long way down
Like a long way down
So honey don’t leave, don’t leave,
Please don’t leave me now
.
Cuz I can feel the rivers
Winding through the lands
Two lines, and a poet
Like a kind old rye
You know we could talk in that language
Only we understand
.
But you know..
.
It’s a long way down
You know it’s a long way down
Feels like a long way down
Love it feels like a long way down
So honey don’t leave, don’t leave,
Please don’t leave me now
.

LDR: Anthony Mandler and I are still working together, still talking. We
had one project in mind but I’m not sure if we’re actually going to do
that. We might just go off on our own and mix his eye for film with my
music, and kind of create a twenty minute short film.

Sirens – Tom Odell
.
Tear me down
Tell me I don’t need to fear
Tell me now
Tell me some bodies near
‘Cause sirens
Sirens are all I hear
.
They keep calling out
Calling out someone’s name
Keep calling out
And all you can do is pray
That these sirens
Sirens don’t come our way
.
Or we’ll be
All run run running away
We’ll be
All run run running away
All run run running away
When sirens they come our way
.
It’s raining now
Raining on someone’s fears
Raining down
I’ve heard the rain is the city’s tears
But these sirens
These sirens are all I hear
.
And they keep calling out
Calling out someone’s name
Keep calling out
And all I can do is pray
That these sirens
Sirens don’t come our way

Or we’ll be
All run run running away
We’ll be
All run run running away

I Think It’s Going To Rain Today – Tom Odell

Broken windows and empty hall ways
Pale dead moon in a sky streaked with grey
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it`s going to rain today
.
Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away.
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think its going to rain today.

Right before me, the signs implore me
Help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing

No I think it`s going to rain today.

LDR: That’s a good [question]. My own imagination, and my own vision

California, the energy of New York. The potential I see in possible new
innovative technological advances we’re making day by day.

enough to have time to turn my life into a work of art. To sculpt my
life into the way I want it to look from the people I know to the music
I make to the art I want to keep trying to do, and time with my family.

The storms are raging on the rollin’ sea

LDR: The only thing I can really myself slipping into easily is… The guy
who composed the Paradise edition doesn’t really work in pop music, he’s
a composer for films in California and he’s one of my oldest friends. I
could see us just naturally scoring music for films, and that would be a
really comfortable transition. It’s nice to stay in Los Angeles, it’s
nice to be at home, but go out late at night and work on pieces that
move you for movies you love. That would be great.

JJ: What can we expect from Lana Del Rey in 2013?

LDR: Probably just more of the same. I really love the Paradise edition,

the time and I would press up against the fish tanks and it just looked
crazy. Our style started to develop together creatively to kind of
reflect our love for Americana kitsch. Whenever she’d leave for work
she’d come back and there would be streamers in the house and banners
from the party store that she hated, but it started this style that I

JJ: What has been the most surreal experience for you since breaking?

Offering gossip is often entertaining but it can often be damaging.

LDR: I think feeling so comfortable in places like China, it feeling so
natural to be in Shanghai or be in Singapore and feel like I have
friends there. I’d say feeling like you have friends wherever you go is
surreal when you come from a more isolated town. It really opens up the
world for you.

LDR: Believe it or not it was recently. I started working with Jaguar,
and I went to Paris where they were unveiling their new F-Type. I had to
walk down this 200 ft carpet just as this thunderstorm stopped in this
long white dress, and my friend had to escort me down with an umbrella
all the way down to the microphone. I got down there and I sang the song
that I had written for their new car, and I said I was proud of Ian who
was the designer who had submitted a sketch of the car when he was seven
and finally brought it to life all these years later. So I got finished
singing and these two sports cars started weaving around the stage and
vrooming and it was really electric. The audience was just dazzled by
the cars and the lights and the sound, it was very surreal.

arrived, she wasn’t sure she was in the right place. Atfirst, she didn’t
recognize anyone. She felt a bit awkward and out of place.But it
wasn’t before a strange man came up

to her. He was already losing his hear and he was wearingthick
glasses
(深度眼镜). Don’t you remember me? He asked. When he said who
he was, shebarely remembered him, especially he has changed so much.
Then he told her thathe had alwayshad crush on her. Hesaid she
looked beautiful and he immediately took aselfieof them, with his
armtight

around her waist. This made her felt a bit strange. She smiled at him
andpretended to be happy to see him. But in fact, she was sure how to
react,thought he seemed nice. She finally excused herself and went to
the ladies’ room.She was beginning to regret to having come to the
reunion. She had always beenshy and she still was. When she returned to
the party, Sharon invited her tosit at her table. Dinner was going to be
served soon and some of the classmateswere going to give speeches.
Sharon next was also got to say a few words toobecause people were
curious. This was a surprise. Jessica had never been verypopular and she
didn’t think anyone had noticed her. She had always felt likean
outsider, with only a couple of close friends. Still, she had been one
ofthe best students and people remembered her.As the evening wore
on
, Jessica began to really enjoy herself. Shetold to her old friends
and was amazed by how some others had changed.

For example, Tom used to be good lookingand athletic. He was one of the
most popular students, and star basketballplayer. His one problem was
math. He had had hard time in math especially ingeometric. This is
because he wasn’t alogical thinker.Except for basketball,

he didn’t want to do anything, unless it was easy. Tom was no longer
goodlooking. His nosewhich hadalwaysbeen large, had grown even
larger. He had alsogained a lot of weight. His wife had left him so
for the first timeand ever, he was lone. He looked lonely and depressed,
not at all like he usedto be.

Steve was a nobody in middle school. Peoplehardly noticed him. He was
small, quiet and a bit ugly withcrooked teeth. What he was good at
wasEnglish. His English was even better than their teachers. After
graduating, hewent to low rent university and eventually dropped out.
For a while, he workedas a tour guide. Then, 10 years ago, he and some
friends started a littlecompany which is now a great success. In fact,
he had become a rich, generousman. He had a nice warm smile and his
success hadn’tgone to his head(冲昏头脑). It was a pleasure

to be around him.

Betty used to be the most beautiful girl inschool. She wasn’t very smart
but she was a great singer. She made a video ofher singing andit went
viral
. Shebecame famous overnight but it only lasted for about 2
years. After that, herfans lostinterested inher. Shetried to become
an actress, but she failed. She has been too stiff and nervousin front
of the camera. Betty has a nice husband who seems toadopther. The
one tragedy in her lifehappened about 5 years ago when she lost her
daughtertoa rareform of cancer.Because of that, her hair had
begun to turn grey. Jessicacouldn’t help but feel sorry for her.
Betty had had suchhigh hope intremendousenergy as a girl, but things
didn’t work out.

And then there was John. John used to bethe schoolbully. He had been
big,strong and mean. He hadn’t been nice to anybody. It seemed that he
was alwaysangry and ready to hit someone. After graduating, he joined
the army and wentoverseas to fight to a war. His saw many people died
andhe grew to hate fighting of any kind. Then one day, he was
nearlykilled whena helicopter he was inwas shut down. He survived
the crash(事故) but he lost aleg and washospitalizedfor nearlya
year. Now he had completely changed. He hadgentle, kind eyes and
beautiful smile. He wasworking foran organization that provides
support to elderlypeople. From Jessica’s point of view, johnhad

turned out to bea wonderful surprise. In the end, Jessica wasgladshe
went to her reunion. It wasinteresting to see how people had changed
through these years. Still, she washappy to get home and appreciate

There are many mysteries in nature.Mysteries are things we don’t
understand, such as how the Egyptian pyramidswere built. In fact, we are
surrounded by mysteries. What we know about theworld, seems like very
little. Scientists tell us that what we see in theuniverse is only a
small part of what is there. The rest is invisible,including dark matter
and dark energy. These two unknownsmade uparound 95% of the
universe. Evidence for their existencecomes from their effects on what
we can observe, such as the motion andpositions of the distant galaxies.
Yet thought we know very little, we are ableto build airplanes and
communicate with smartphones. In some ways, we humansare very smart or
at least we think we are. We still need to face big issues,like climate
change and that’s going to be a huge challenge. Thechallenge
for
humans will be ourabilities toadapt toour chancingenvironment.

What about other form of life? How did theyadapt?
Seasonalvariations,forexample, can be one of the greatest challenges
for animals to overcome.Overcoming such challenges will be a great
achievement but hardly easy. Somebirds migrate thousands of kilometers
each year, to deal with seasonal changes.These migrations are amazing.
Birds don’t carry maps orcompassesyet they know where to go. They
had developed theirabilities to see the earth magnetic field. This
ability is a wonder of nature.It takes advantage of the factthat
theearth is like a huge bar magnet. It has north polar, which is
positive andsouth polar, which is negative.Somehowthe birds are able
to see this magnetic field and use it to their advantage.And even the
way birds flying together is amazing. Some migrating birds fly in aV
formation.
They do this toconserve energy. In a V formation, birds can
use the energy of the birds infront of them. These energy comes from the
air currents, generated by thewings. Conserving energyis necessary
for
the birds to survivein long journey. Who did the birds know this?
It’s truly amazing how the birdsknow this.

Another amazing example of survive animalis theSalmon. Salmon spent
most oftheir lives in the ocean which is salty water. Yet, when it’s
time to breed,they do so in fresh water rivers. Salmon can adapt their
bodies to survive inboth saltwater and freshwater. When it’s breeding
time, they returned to thesame water where they were born. It seems as
if they had built-in map thatguides them for a hundred of miles. Once
they left the salt water, they don’teat. They are determined to finish
their journeydespite of many obstacles. They swam against the strong
currents,jump over the waterfalls and try to escape theclawsof
hungry bears. Many die along the way but enough of themsurvive to breed
and reproduce the next generation. Once they had lay theireggs, they
die, having completed their journey. It seems that their purpose inlife
is just to reproduce. Migration takes the animals to new, more
favorableenvironments when seasons change. Some of these journeys are
long and dangerousalong around not obvious landmarks. The longest
migration is that ofa tern. It flies from polar to polar,twice a
year. If aternachieves itsaveragelifespanof 20 years,
thedistance it has flown will be equivalent to a journey to the moon and
back. Humansalso migrate but seldom if ever for seasonal variations.
fortunately, human migrationsare often due to human activities. Since
the beginning of the 21st century,large scale migrations had become a
global problem. Millions of migrates hadhad to leave their countries and
look for new homes. Many have died along theway or left these refugees
in camps until they are admitted into a new country.So the question
remains as to how our

global communities will face these challenges.

L5 Unit 1-4 vocabulary

false or mistakes. Some people appreciate constructive criticism, which

or hurtful. One way to apologize is to say you are sorry. If your
apologyisn’t accepted, it means the person hasn’t forgiven you.

To order people to do something means touse your power or positionto
get them

to do it. Many people dislike being ordered to do things. In many
cases,it’s better to make a request than order someone to do something.

To encourage someone is to support theirefforts and help build their
confidence. A good teacher encourages students todo their best. To
discourage someone is toget

awaytheir confidence.

There are many cycle in nature, such as the

circles of seasons. A cycle is a series of events that repeat, such as
the

daily cycle of light and dark.

To evolve means to change or improve over a

period of time. In biology, the series of evolution advanced life forms
such as

you.

Ok, what’s it?

Kevin and Bob are shouting at each other

and it’s upsetting everyone.

Oh, not again.

Both two have got to grow up. Who started

it?

I’m not sure but they were even pushing

each other.

Ok, this is unacceptable.You run on ahead and warn them that I’m

coming. I want them to calm down before I get there. Can you do that?

Ok, I’ll do what I can to calm them down.

But you know Keven, he’s such a hard heart.

Ok, Keven, I’ve warned you before. This is

got to stop.

Yes, I know. But Bob doesn’t cooperate.

He’s impossible to work with.

Even so, you can’t go around pushing

people. That’s no way to handle things.

If you weren’t doing such a good job, I’d

have to let you go right now. Your behavior just isn’t acceptable.

Yeah, I understand and I’m sorry. I just

can’t stand working with him.

I’m sure what to do. What were you do if

you were me? Do you have any suggestions?

To be honest, if I were you, I wouldn’t

have the two of us working in the same office. I know Bob has been with
the

company longer than I have but he’s doing a terrible job. When you are
not

around, he just bully people. People are afraid of him.

Ok, I’ll look into(调查) a bit more. But you’ve got to promise me to
keep cool and not let

this happen again.

Ok, I’ll try to handle things differently

next time.
