Please sister


幾個月前,林憶蓮出了一張專輯,裡面翻唱了很多外國歌,填上中文詞,加上重新編曲。
這張專輯好不好聽也就算了,不是這裡要說的重點;裡面翻唱了The Cardigans(羊毛衫合唱團)Communication這首歌,這首歌我是相當喜歡的,不過,這也不是重點。

只是藉由這一點動機,我將Long Gone Before Daylight(黎明之前)這張專輯又拿出來聽;當初特別喜歡的就是Communication、Please Sister這兩首歌,老是沒事哼上兩句,但之前都沒好好地看看歌詞,這次便將Please Sister好好地研究了一下。

也想起了2004年的一些心情,掙扎的2004......

With the sampled heart beat and the stolen soul
I sold my songs to have my fortune told
And it said:
"You should know that love will never die,
But see how it kills you in the blink of an eye."

I know of love as hot white light
That knocks you down and
then leaves you dry
Oh, how can it be, sweet mamma tell me why?
Why all Love's disciples have to wither and die?

Please sister, help me come on do what you should,
Please give me something, I'm not doing so good!
I’m gone, done wrong is there nothing you can say
Please sister help me, I'm not feeling OK...

Give me belief when my time will come
And a toll free helpline if I find some one.
But she said: "
You gave away what you never really had,
And now your purse is empty I can see why you’re sad..."

Oh,
Please sister, help me come on do what you should,
Please give me something, I'm not doing so good!
I’m gone, done wrong is there nothing you can say
Please sister help me, can you make me feel OK?

So if it's true that love will never die,
Then why do the lovers work so hard to stay alive?

Please...
Oh, please sister, help me...
Please, give me something...
Oh... Please sister, you know I do what I can!
Oh, sweet mamma please just send me a man,
'Cause I'm gone, gone, is there nothing you can give?
Please sister, help me, I just need some love to live!

Just a little love to live...
Just a little love to live...
