#songshare – Listen to Mum Talk About the Past

听妈妈讲那过去的事情


The moon walks through the white lotus-like clouds.
The evening wind blew bursts of happy singing.
We sat by the high heaps of grain,
Listening to mum talk about the past.
We sat by the high heaps of grain,
Listening to mum talk about the past.
At that time, my mother had no land.
All life is in two hands.
Sweat flows in the fiery fields of the landlord,
Mother ate wild vegetables and bran.
Howling like a winter blizzard,
My mother was wearing tattered single clothes,
She went to sew a fox fur robe for the landlord,
Cold and hungry and falling on the snow…
After so many hard years,
Mum was looking forward to today’s good life.
The moon walks through the white lotus-like clouds,
The evening wind blew bursts of happy singing.
We sat by the high heaps of grain,
Listening to mum talk about the past.
We sat by the high heaps of grain,
Listening to mum talk about the past.

#songshare – Peggy Gordon (to Ash)

Peggy Gordon – Sinéad O’Connor

O Peggy Gordon, you are my darling
Come sit you down upon my knee
And tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee
I’m so in love that I can’t deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
But it’s not for you to let the world know it
A troubled mind can know no rest
I put my head to a glass of brandy
It was my fancy I do declare
For when I’m drinking I’m always thinking
And wishing Peggy Gordon was here, mm
I wished I was in some lonesome valley
Where womankind cannot be found
Where the little birds sang on the branches
And every moment a different sound
O Peggy Gordon, you are my darling
Come sit you down upon my knee
And tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee

#songshare – The Olive Tree

The Olive Tree – Chyi Yu

不要问我从哪里来
Do not ask me where I’m from

我的故乡在远方
My hometown is far away

为什么流浪
Why do I wander around

流浪远方 流浪
Wandering afar, wandering

为了天空飞翔的小鸟
For the little birds that soar through the sky

为了山间轻流的小溪
For the creeks that rush between the mountains

为了宽阔的草原
For the endless grasslands

流浪远方 流浪
Wandering afar, wandering

还有还有
Also, also

为了梦中的橄榄树 橄榄树
For that olive tree in my dreams, that olive tree

不要问我从哪里来
Do not ask me where I’m from

我的故乡在远方
My hometown is far away

为什么流浪
Why do I wander around

为什么流浪远方
Why do I wander to distant lands?

为了我梦中的橄榄树
For the olive tree in my dreams

不要问我从哪里来
Don’t ask me where I come from

我的故乡在远方
My hometown is far away

为什么流浪
Why do I wander around

流浪远方 流浪
Wandering afar, wandering

#songshare – 传奇

传奇 – 王菲

只是因为在人群中 多看了你一眼
再也没能忘掉你容颜
梦想着偶然能有一天再相见
从此我开始孤单思念

想你时 你在天边
想你时 你在眼前
想你时 你在脑海
想你时 你在心田

宁愿相信我们前世有约
今生的爱情故事 不会再改变
宁愿用这一生等你发现
我一直在你身旁 从未走远

只是因为在人群中 多看了你一眼
再也没能忘掉你容颜
梦想着偶然能有一天再相见
从此我开始孤单思念

想你时 你在天边
想你时 你在眼前
想你时 你在脑海
想你时 你在心田

宁愿相信我们前世有约
今生的爱情故事 不会再改变
宁愿用这一生等你发现
我一直在你身旁 从未走远

只是因为在人群中 多看了你一眼

#songshare – Cactus Tree

Cactus Tree – Joni Mitchel

There’s a man who’s been out sailing
In a decade full of dreams
And he takes her to a schooner
And he treats her like a queen
Bearing beads from California
With their amber stones and green
He has called her from the harbor
He has kissed her with his freedom
He has heard her off to starboard
In the breaking and the breathing
Of the water weeds
While she was busy being free
There’s a man who’s climbed a mountain
And he’s calling out her name
And he hopes her heart can hear three thousand miles
He calls again
He can think her there beside him
He can miss her just the same
He has missed her in the forest
While he showed her all the flowers
And the branches sang the chorus
As he climbed the scaley towers
Of a forest tree
While she was somewhere being free
There’s a man who’s sent a letter
And he’s waiting for reply
He has asked her of her travels
Since the day they said goodbye
He writes “Wish you were beside me
We can make it if we try”
He has seen her at the office
With her name on all his papers
Through the sharing of the profits
He will find it hard to shake her
From his memory
And she’s so busy being free
There’s a lady in the city
And she thinks she loves them all
There’s the one who’s thinking of her
There’s the one who sometimes calls
There’s the one who writes her letters
With his facts and figures scrawl
She has brought them to her senses
They have laughed inside her laughter
Now she rallies her defenses
For she fears that one will ask her
For eternity
And she’s so busy being free
There’s a man who sends her medals
He is bleeding from the war
There’s a jouster and a jester and a man who owns a store
There’s a drummer and a dreamer
And you know there may be more
She will love them when she sees them
They will lose her if they follow
And she only means to please them
And her heart is full and hollow
Like a cactus tree
While she’s so busy being free

#songshare – Girlfriend

Girlfriend – Julia Fordham

Don’t tell me to stop crying
Please just hold me while i do
Soothe me with your silence
And just cradle me to you
Don’t push me for my reasons
Or expect me to explain
How can i in five minutes shift
A lifetime’s hidden pain
Don’t tell your girlfriend about me
Cos your girlfriend won’t like girls like me
Don’t tell your girlfriend about me
If you just hold me… hold me… hold me
I went to see a psychic and
I paid for good advice
He said “forget a romance
‘Til you’ve sorted out your life.”
Be your own mother and your father
And your sister and brother
And even try to crack the art
Of being your own lover…
Don’t tell your girlfriend about me
Cos your girlfriend won’t like girls like me
Don’t tell your girlfriend about me
If you just hold me… hold me… hold me
In my darkest hour you’d be mine
These wildest dreams
Are no crime or are they, girlfriend?
Coming from a place of need
Not one of abundance
You see he told me, girlfriend
Don’t tell me to stop crying
Please just hold me while i do
Soothe me with your silence
And just cradle me to you
Don’t push me for my reasons
Or expect me to explain
How come i say i’m happy
To be on my own again?
Don? t tell your girlfriend about me
Cos your girlfriend won’t like girls like me
Don? t tell your girlfriend about me
Cos your girlfriend won’t like girls like me
You don’t have to tell your girlfriend about me
If you just hold me… hold me… hold me

#songshare – Blinded

Blinded – As I Lay Dying

If you like drumming…

Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Blinded, blinded by the pain
Unwilling to see, senseless
So blinded by selfishness
Only focusing on myself
And ignoring anyone else
Becoming driven by despair
Feeling trapped into a corner
Losing more and more of reality
Perceiving all the hurt only one-sidedly
Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Losing yourself inside the heartache
Losing yourself
Feeling too powerless to change
Stuck and unable to escape
Incapable to see another way
I need someone to shake me, to wake me
I don't even need full clarity
Just to start the shift from blind to blurry
Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Losing yourself inside the heartache
And does that mean we cannot change?
Or will we always be seen that way?
Will we always be seen that way?
And does that really mean we have not changed?
Or does it only mean
The truth is not in how we're seen?
But in the actions that we're now determined to take
Revealing the new path we chose to mend the heartache
Was it a pattern or a disastrous mistake?
Is the truth in what you see or what I say?
Have you ever been blinded by the pain?
Losing yourself inside the heartache
And does that mean we cannot change?
Or will we always be seen that way?
Be seen that way?
Blinded by pain? (blinded by the pain)
And does that really mean we have not changed?
