用省略號顯示猶豫的歌詞是什麼技術?


1

You saw me the day before

It all ended, and yet you've

left me without words

I wish...

That you could let it go

Let the past go, be free

Free like the wind

Free like the birds

將這樣的省略號放在詩句的末尾是使歌曲更加諧和的行為,這是一種技巧嗎?有名字嗎?有什麼受歡迎的例子嗎?還是技術以外的東西?如果是這樣,是否經常這樣做?您能在流行歌曲中找到一些例子嗎?

(I can't comment but this response isn't quite an answer.)

Can you elaborate more on what your end product should be? Do you have a character talking about writing music, either to another musician or to a non-musician? Music has its own language of components, but unless you're actually including a stave lines in your writing, you may want to stick with English to describe music rather than musical terminology. Many people who do not read music may be frustrated or discouraged by suddenly seeing music in the middle of a story. Of course, maybe you are writing non-fiction about a composer....

If you wish to stick with music, the term "caesura" may be one option. Wikipedia definition (Used to give musicians in need an air a moment to get some, or to indicate a longer pause at the director's artistic judgement). Additionally, there is a music stack exchange that you may wish to peruse.
