Truer than any tree ever grew

Deeper than any forest primeval

I am in love with you
我已因你坠入了爱河
I'll bring fire in the winters

We'll fly through the falls and summers
我们将比翼穿越金秋与夏暑
With love on our wings

Through the years as the fire starts to mellow
岁月蹉跎,炽火开始衰弱
Burning lines in the book of our lives

Though the binding cracks

and the pages start to yellow
书面虽已斑驳,书页亦逐渐泛黄
I'll be in love with you

这是一首爱尔兰民谣。背景就是19世纪,爱尔兰因为土豆绝产发生大饥荒。据说直到现在,爱尔兰人口仍未超过19世纪大饥荒之前的数量。Kilkelly 镇男孩,John Hunt 离家去美国谋生计,但一去30年再未回到故乡。


后来,他的后代发现了他父亲在这30年中写给他的信件。John Hunt 的曾孙 Peter Jones 在感动之余,用信内容作歌词,传下了令人感动的佳作。仔细品味歌词,书信内容朴实,情真意切,感人至深。

只留下脚印
And we'll shame them with our words
我们将用我们的话来羞辱他们
Gone people
过去的
All careless and consumed gone
人们无忧无虑消耗着一切消失了
Gone going
过去了
Gone everything
所有的一切
Gone give a damn
过去的别在乎
Gone be the birds if they don't wanna sing
如果鸟儿不想唱歌它们就消失了
Gone people
过去的
All awkward with their thing
人们总是会遇到棘手的事情
gone
但是一切都过去了





言语尽头旋律响起,极品音乐唤醒记忆
