歌詞ピックアップ

最終曲、ELOはポップなバンドだが、この曲の内容は能天気とは無縁。むしろ “そこ” へ向かわざるをえない人類の性を感じさせる。

しかしさすがイギリス人ジェフ・リン、ことばはあくまでシンプル。ポップスの節度を知る稀有なアーティスト。

“Getting to the Point” written by Jeff Lynne

It’s out of control, And there’s nothing I can do now
Out of control, spinning softly through the blue now
And look beyond these walls as the meaning starts to dawn
It’s getting to the point, getting to the point

It’s out of control, nothing I can do
Like a fire that keeps on burning
And nobody knows what I’m going through
And the thoughts just keep returning
And all you had to say, was that you were gonna stay
It’s getting to the point, getting to the point

It’s getting to the point where nobody can stop it now
It’s getting to the point of no return
And all that I can do is stand and watch it now
watch it burn, burn, burn
It’s getting to the point where reasons are forgotten
It’s getting to the point where no one knows
And all that I can do is say I’m sorry, but that’s the way it goes
It’s getting to the point

Forever is a long way, forever takes your breath away
I’d like to talk about it, try to understand
It’s getting to the point, getting to the point

It’s getting to the point where nobody can stop it now
It’s getting to the point of no return
And all that I can do is stand and watch it now
watch it burn, burn, burn
It’s getting to the point where reasons are forgotten
It’s getting to the point where no one knows
And all that I can do is say I’m sorry, but that’s the way it goes
It’s getting to the point
