Lullabye For a Stormy Night (聽音樂請按)


little child, be not afraid
though rain pounds harshly against the glass
like an unwanted stranger, there is no danger
I am here tonight

little child, be not afraid
though thunder explodes and lightning flash
illuminates your tear-stained face
I am here tonight

and someday you'll know
that nature is so
the same rain that draws you near me
falls on rivers and land
on forests and sand
makes the beautiful world that you'll see
in the morning


little child, be not afraid
though storm clouds mask your beloved moon
and its candlelight beams, still keep pleasant dreams
I am here tonight

little child, be not afraid
though wind makes creatures of our trees
and their branches to hands, they're not real, understand
and I am here tonight

for you know, once even I was a
little child, and I was afraid
but a gentle someone always came
to dry all my tears, trade sweet sleep for fears
and to give a kiss goodnight

well now I am grown
and these years have shown
that rain's a part of how life goes
but it's dark and it's late
so I'll hold you and wait
'til your frightened eyes do close

and I hope that you'll know...

everything's fine in the morning
the rain'll be gone in the morning
but I'll still be here in the morning

窗外的風雨聲 夜裡特別平靜
回憶往往不可拆散
為雨聲伴奏的
是 府城夏日、陣雨方歇,特有的氣息。

走到雨中伸出舌頭的小孩,今天會冷
他決定窩在房子的軀殼裡
陪著滲進的風,哼它細微的哭號。

今天的妳很勇敢 而我還在猶豫
一腳浸在雨水裡 失去了知覺 仍想往前走
卻凍透了 乾鞋包著的那隻 原地停留

話語不再滴落的時候
就熱壺苦苦的咖啡 一個人配藥喝

妳的琴聲很柔 卻沒聽見妳的嗓音
只有我 隨著風 細微哼著

little child be not affraid, I'm here tonight.

嗯,上面好像寫偏了,怎麼寫一寫又變成那種文體? =_=
今天晚上,外面下的大雨,我抓著一本書,
靠著沙發,聽著有點像布幔在空中振動的聲音。

這首歌聲,讓我放下了手中的書。
不知道是不是天的安排,讓雨聲為這首歌伴奏。
電視上是個亞洲女生,在一場小型的演唱會中,獨自彈著鋼琴,輕輕的唱著。

她唱完這曲後,我只記得 Little Child be not affraid 和 I'm here tonight 兩句。
在腦海子還沒忘記之前,到電視桌前拜了神。
找出了這位在 KQED上說話低沉,歌聲飛揚的女生叫 Vienna Teng。

二十六歲的她從史丹佛大學的電腦資訊系畢業後,進了同樣在灣區的 Cisco 工作。
兩年後,她離開了工作,全心投入了她從小接觸的音樂裡。
從灣區開始,漸漸的越來越有知名度。

她仍不是美國家喻戶曉的歌手,也不曾在銷售排行榜上留連
讓我懷疑,為什麼她沒有像 Norah Jones 或其它白人歌星那樣成名。
也許,這真的是個白人的國家吧。

不知道為什麼這首歌為什麼讓我感動。
它的歌詞也許可以說老套,只是老套得讓我感到很安全。
