大地回春 Spring is Here

 
Posted by Picasa




大地回春

風雨送春歸,飛雪迎春到。已是懸崖百丈冰,猶有花枝俏。俏也不争春,只把春來報。待到山花爛漫時,她在叢中笑。毛澤東作為詩人,在50年前,步陸游咏梅詞,反其義,也用卜算子詞牌,填了這一首《咏梅》詞。當然,這朵朵的報春花是指在雪野懸崖展俏,而不與春天爭妍鬥麗的梅花。不知是否因梅花被國民黨搶先定為國花,而菊花也被日本人佔去,於是退而求其次, 大力摧捧茉莉花,更把這一曲蘇北民謠《茉莉花》升格,僅次於聶耳的《義勇軍進行曲》,差點兒成了全民皆唱的另類國歌。

上個星期,在開始溶掉的雪堆中,拾回一份1月21日的《波士頓環球報》,當時的道瓊斯工業平均指數是報11,822.8,比今天還要低。頭條新聞是減少在薪金扣稅,口袋的錢多了,可應付高漲的糧價。那時,北非突尼斯茉莉花革命方興未艾,本阿里政府還沒有倒台,另外的一個埃及穆巴拉克,當然連倒台的跡象也沒有。再看看今天,兩個獨裁政權已經被人民力量推翻了,另一個在利比亞狂人卡達菲,變得更加瘋狂了,竟然用戰鬥機轟炸平民、用武裝直升機掃射示威群眾、空運非洲僱佣兵濫殺無辜,這樣違反人性的政權,又豈能長久呢!

天氣漸暖,春回大地,看來,每天送來的報紙,再不可能會埋在雪堆,但是,世局變幻無常,剛掉進廢紙回收桶的《美國新聞週刊》,2月7日的封面是突尼斯,2月27日的封面是埃及,3月還沒有收到,但是可想而知。在美東紐英倫地區,還覆蓋著厚厚的積雪,中國的江南已踏進暮春時節了,到了4月,那正是山花漫爛的時候,中東、北非處處變天,其他專制獨裁政權,又怎能獨善其身,更加變得誠惶誠恐,坐立不安了。

革命暴潮曼延整個北非及中東,先有突尼斯青年自焚,繼而維基解密揭露總統班阿里家族的貪腐,而引發起“茉莉花革命”,更激勵了埃及青年威爾戈寧,他在臉書告訴他的“朋友”,他對埃及總統穆巴拉克30年的獨裁統治,已再無法忍受下去了,要動身前往解放廣場參加示威,他已準備為革命而犧牲,並呼籲其他人發出手機、吱鳥短訊,在到廣場一個半小時的旅途中,參加保護他的行列。這個訊息快就像雪球一樣滾動,威爾戈寧到不了廣場,他已被埃及秘密警察逮捕了,但是在廣場上,已聚集了成千上萬的群眾。在被拘禁15天後,威爾戈寧重臨廣場,這時穆巴拉克已逃出開羅,埃及經已變天。

利用互聯網社交載體如臉書、吱鳥,發起群眾運動,當然會令獨裁政權在顫抖。上兩個星期,中國博訊網曾號召在中國13個城市,發起“中國茉莉花革命”行動。聚集地點都是在鬧市如北京王府井大街,及上海的人民廣場,平日已是肩摩轂擊,熙來攘往的了,根本分不出那些是有意參加茉莉花飄香散步,那些是好奇圍觀者,但這足已令當權者大緊張,成為驚弓之鳥。上星期第2輪茉莉花集會,更發展到27個城市,並以“兩會”作為代號。在當局早有防範及嚴密監控下,被驅趕扣押的,反而以在場的攝影及採訪記者為主,這實是國際公關的大災難。

有人說,早些關閉互聯網,革命就鬧不起來了,但是也有人認為,沒有互聯網,革命會更快來臨。是無法正常上網會導至革命,還是可以隨便上網才會散發革命種籽,這個問題,可能是社會人類學家要研究的課題。有說在靈魂深處鬧革命,就因為互聯網已鑽進靈魂深處,佔領了一切思想陣地,特別是已成為青年人生活上,不可缺少的一部份,無法上網,就好像精神枯竭一樣,爆發出不滿情緒,比任何革命來得更可怕。

此際,中國互聯網繼續號召人們,在每一個星期天上街散步,肆機行動。無須等到茉莉花在7、8月盛開的季節,革命的花種,早已在青年人的腦海散播,民主、人權、公義這些普世價值,已不再是遙不可及的了。發生在突尼斯、埃及、利比亞的革命,已經在其他不可能爆發革命的地區開花結果了。春天或遲或早,都會到來人間大地。

翻著古老的相片簿 對著總是總是
在心中鼓勵著我的人 囁嚅著謝謝兩個字
晴空颯爽也好 大雨滂沱也罷
那時時刻刻浮現的笑容
即使回憶已遠離褪色
我依然追尋絲絲影跡

如此孤單 如此眷戀 對你的思念讓我 淚光閃閃
想見你一面 想見你一面對你的思念讓我 淚光閃閃


Turning the pages of old photographs
I whisper thanks to each and every one
Deep in my heart you have come, come to live
Sure as the sun to see me through

Come rain or shine however the day may be
You shelter me with your smile
However far your memories may fade
Traces of you I hope to find
Then you appear and I drown in my own tears

I wish on a star, the first star of the night
You'll find me here every evening of the year
As twilight approaches I look to the sky
Seaching for you with all of my heart

In grief and joy I long for you and your smile
Hoping you feel the way I do
If only you could find me from where you are
I do believe somewhere in time
I do believe I will see you once again

Come rain or shine however the day may be
You shelter me with your smile
But as each memory of you fades away
I'm so alone longing for you
You're on my mind as I drown in my own tears

Missing you so I'm missing you so
You're on my mind as I drown in my own tears

歡迎大地回春 枝頭朵朵花如錦 原野層層草如茵
燕子歸來尋舊巢 雙雙呢喃訴衷情

大地萬象更新 蝴蝶翩翩舞輕盈 蜜蜂嗡嗡採花粉 
情侶漫步軟風裡 一片春色動人情

桃花爭放 紅白相映 堤水濱吐芬清 大地回春

茉莉花 Jasmine Flower


Posted by Picasa




茉莉花

記得小時候,在香港一幢戰後的4層高石屎樓中,那戶住在3樓的人家,在陽台上除了用馬尾葵,遮擋著猛烈的斜陽外,就是用綠色的大甕缸,種滿了白色帶有淡紅的茉莉花,在炎熱的7、8月大暑天盛開,隨著柔柔的晚風,吹來濃郁的清香。母親與屋主熟落了,也移植了一小盆,更把過盛的花枝剪下,放在水碟中,讓斗室的窗台上,散發著陣陣幽香。廣東人還把茉莉花入茶,但由於與“沒利”諧音,便改稱為香片了,取其片片清香之意。

一闕江蘇民謠《茉莉花》,早在清乾隆年間,已經流傳,並一度成為滿清的國歌。不要以為只有中國人,才對茉莉花情有獨鍾,往西邊走地球的半個圈,在北非洲的回教國家突尼斯,茉莉花成了他們的國花。在去年12月間,一場非暴力抗議示威,終演變成全民起義,名為“茉莉花革命”,推翻了總統班阿理長達23年的獨裁統治。

此後,革命的烈火,燃遍了整個北非及中東地區,就像“大地回春”一樣,民主的春天暖風,吹過整個回教大地。在埃及, 為期18天的街頭運動,人民把穆巴拉克30年的高壓獨裁政權趕下台。在巴林、利比亞的革命被軍隊武力鎮壓下來,但人民並沒有退卻。也門、摩洛哥的反抗浪潮,更是此起彼落。人民要活得更有尊嚴,捍衛普世人權價值,推翻獨裁暴政,已成了不可逆轉的潮流。

在上星期,更有中國內地網民,發起茉莉花飄香運動,號召民眾在2月20日下午2時,在北京、上海 、天津 及廣州等13個城市,在市中心聚集、散步,要求改善民生、司法獨立、啟動政治改革、開放報禁,容許新聞自由等訴求。特別經過1989年6月4日天安門學生運動,政府早已決心把一切反對政府運動的苗頭,徹底消滅在萌芽狀態。因此“中國茉莉花革命“的訊息,很快便被刪除,轉載的網站亦被屏蔽。不單是“埃及”,“茉莉花”竟成了敏感的關鍵詞,遭到封殺。

在20日之前,全國各地大概有近1000社會活躍人士、維權律師,甚至無關痛癢的人等,遭便衣公安警察拘禁、限制行動自由,甚至被毆打。但仍有不少民眾,不怕打壓,應在網上呼籲的地點,到包括北京王府井大街、上海人民廣場聚合。當中有青年在地上檢起被棄置的鮮花,因而被拘捕。有好奇過路或圍觀的人,被當作參予者逮捕,更有當眾向記者表示不滿的老年人,也遭關押。擁有龐大國家機器的當權者,可謂到了杯弓蛇影的地步了。

香港是唯一的中國城市,互聯網仍是通行無阻的,也有三數十人,到守衛深嚴的中央駐港聯絡辦事處門外示威、聲援。人們會問,在世界回教國家的“大氣候”,為什麼影響不了中國的“小氣候”。近年來,在中國的群體反抗事件無日無之,民眾對官商勾結已是非常反感,加上地方官員強行收地,社會的不公義,司法向權勢傾斜,已引起相當的民怨及公憤,社會上是存在著不穩定的因素,但仍未達到觸發大規模民眾起義的臨界點。

這30 年間,在經濟改革中的獲益者,對生活條件的改善,有了基本的滿足,加上一批已累積不少私有財富的新興中產階級,在快速的經濟增長中,對美好的生活,仍然有一定的幢景,對處於近乎赤貧的低下層,並未有產生感同身受之痛,因此有學人認為,社會確實有貧富不均的矛盾,加上政府在“維穩”工作上,投放了極大的資源,讓當權者對當前的國際形勢,有極頑強的免疫力。

隨著人民對全球資訊的喝求,互聯網社交載具無遠弗屆,這堵“長城隔火牆”還能抵擋多久呢。發自本土的茉莉花芳香,必然會在盛開的時節,薰遍整個中華大地。

The Cairo Revolution 新出埃及記


Posted by Picasa





新出埃及記

在2月11日下午時份,兩駕塗上沙漠顏色的軍用直升機,突然間從開羅東北郊區、尼羅河以東,飛出保衛深嚴的埃及總統府,相信是載著穆巴拉赫及其家人,朝著西奈半島南端的方向前行,位於紅海傍的沙姆沙伊赫渡假勝地,可能是現年83歲獨裁者的最後歸宿。在1981年,穆巴拉赫踏著被行刺身亡的阿薩特總統的鮮血,接過權位,統治埃及長達30年之久,終於受到人民所唾棄,被迫要結束高壓專橫的政權。狡兔有三窟,穆巴拉赫的藏身之所,當然不止是總統府及紅海渡假勝地,甚至是在德國西南部的巴登醫院,但唯一肯定的是,他再不會返回開羅重掌權力了,因為人民是絕不會同意的。

在上週四,穆巴拉赫發表了令人失望的全國電視講話,沒有立即宣告辭去總統職位,只同意讓出部份權力交予副總統蘇理曼,繼續戀棧權位,妄圖垂簾聽政。數十萬在解放廣場上的群眾,紛紛舉起鞋子,更加堅決要把這個獨裁者趕下台,更多群眾開始在埃及其他城市如亞力山大港聚集,示威已曼延全國。據美國外交官員稱,此後,便無法打開與穆巴拉赫的外交及私人溝通的途徑了。直到上週五,埃及副總統突然宣告穆巴拉赫離任時,白宮新聞官說,他也差不多是在同一時間才獲悉。

一直以來,美國扶持好像埃及這樣的獨裁政權,目的只有一個,就是防止類似1978年發生在伊朗的伊斯蘭革命,讓極端宗教主義奪權上台。美國一邊高唱民主與自由的普世價值觀,另一方面就容忍及支持這些專制政權,繼續鉗制人民應該享有的基本權利,是有其虛偽性。特別是在911以後,整個國策及美援的重點,就放在反恐之上。自奧巴馬上台,外交策略有了適當的調整,再不好像小布殊那樣僵化,修訂了“不是站在美國這一邊便是敵人”的外交導向。特別在2009年6月4日,奧巴馬在開羅大學的演說,除有意向阿拉伯國家示好外,就有公開“煽動埃及年青大學生造反,爭取民主”之嫌。

發生在突尼斯亞的民眾的起義,推翻了班阿理的統治,沒有人想到1個月後,會在埃及重演的,這起義無可否認也促成了穆巴拉赫的倒台。但是不少網民會把28歲薩加勒之死,與埃及群眾運動拉上了關係。在去年夏天,社會活躍份子薩加勒,把一段影片發放到網上,影片是涉及警察把掃蕩販毒份子得來的毒品及金錢分贓,因而被警方報復,兩名便衣探員把他拖出網吧,活生生的在網吧外打死。事後薩加勒的表親把薩加勒的死亡照片,放在“臉書 - Facebook”社交網站上,在全球網絡世界廣泛流傳,有超過3萬多人加入群組,反映出埃及政府貪污腐敗,警察無法無天,引起公憤。

最初由群眾在開羅街頭聚集,在橋上與防暴警察爭奪,警察動用裝甲噴水車,多次衝向示威的人群,人民用身驅攔截,場面非常震憾,整整18天的運動,可清晰地在網上觀看。在解放廣場上,有誓死不退的年青人,有跪下禱告的中年人,在高呼口號的兒童,有在跳舞的婦女。30年前,當穆巴拉赫上台時,他們尚年青,很多還未出生,在這資訊流通的世代,人民要穆巴拉赫下台的意向,已不能逆轉的了。穆巴拉赫可挑動少數支持者,與群眾搏鬥,作垂死的掙扎,但是顯然是不得民心。

由人民供養的軍隊,始終沒有把槍口對著人民,沒有成為統治者壓迫人民的工具。穆巴拉赫跑掉了,埃及仍然是存在的。但是正如奧巴馬所說,埃及再不會是從前一樣,總是換了新天,這是埃及人民的選擇。在推翻了法魯王的統治後,再趕走另一個獨裁者,這個文明古國煥發出新的生命力,不是成了其他文明古國的時代警鐘嗎!

mv中汪峰自己从年少到年老的生命演变也是一个个时代的变迁。近期内最喜欢的一首作品 ­。

词曲:汪峰 编曲:贾轶楠
还记得许多年前的春天
那时的我还没剪去长发
没有信用卡没有她
没有24小时热水的家
可当初的我是那么快乐
虽然只有一把破木吉他
在街上,在桥下 在田野中
唱着那无人问津的歌谣
如果有一天 我老无所依
请把我留在 在那时光里
如果有一天 我悄然离去
请把我埋在 这春天里

还记得那些寂寞的春天
那时的我还没冒起胡须
没有情人节 没有礼物
没有我那可爱的小公主
可我觉得一切没那么糟
虽然我只有对爱的幻想
在清晨 在夜晚 在风中
唱着那无人问津的歌谣
也许有一天 我老无所依
请把我留在 在那时光里
如果有一天 我悄然离去
请把我埋在 在这春天里 春天里

A dictator's downfall


Posted by Picasa





REMARKS BY THE PRESDIENT ON EGYPT

THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. There are very few moments in our lives where we have the privilege to witness history taking place. This is one of those moments. This is one of those times. The people of Egypt have spoken, their voices have been heard, and Egypt will never be the same.

By stepping down, President Mubarak responded to the Egyptian people’s hunger for change. But this is not the end of Egypt’s transition. It’s a beginning. I’m sure there will be difficult days ahead, and many questions remain unanswered. But I am confident that the people of Egypt can find the answers, and do so peacefully, constructively, and in the spirit of unity that has defined these last few weeks. For Egyptians have made it clear that nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day.

The military has served patriotically and responsibly as a caretaker to the state, and will now have to ensure a transition that is credible in the eyes of the Egyptian people. That means protecting the rights of Egypt’s citizens, lifting the emergency law, revising the constitution and other laws to make this change irreversible, and laying out a clear path to elections that are fair and free. Above all, this transition must bring all of Egypt’s voices to the table. For the spirit of peaceful protest and perseverance that the Egyptian people have shown can serve as a powerful wind at the back of this change.

The United States will continue to be a friend and partner to Egypt. We stand ready to provide whatever assistance is necessary -- and asked for -- to pursue a credible transition to a democracy. I’m also confident that the same ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit that the young people of Egypt have shown in recent days can be harnessed to create new opportunity -- jobs and businesses that allow the extraordinary potential of this generation to take flight. And I know that a democratic Egypt can advance its role of responsible leadership not only in the region but around the world.

Egypt has played a pivotal role in human history for over 6,000 years. But over the last few weeks, the wheel of history turned at a blinding pace as the Egyptian people demanded their universal rights.

We saw mothers and fathers carrying their children on their shoulders to show them what true freedom might look like.

We saw a young Egyptian say, “For the first time in my life, I really count. My voice is heard. Even though I’m only one person, this is the way real democracy works.”

We saw protesters chant “Selmiyya, selmiyya” -- “We are peaceful” -- again and again.

We saw a military that would not fire bullets at the people they were sworn to protect.

And we saw doctors and nurses rushing into the streets to care for those who were wounded, volunteers checking protesters to ensure that they were unarmed.

We saw people of faith praying together and chanting – “Muslims, Christians, We are one.” And though we know that the strains between faiths still divide too many in this world and no single event will close that chasm immediately, these scenes remind us that we need not be defined by our differences. We can be defined by the common humanity that we share.

And above all, we saw a new generation emerge -- a generation that uses their own creativity and talent and technology to call for a government that represented their hopes and not their fears; a government that is responsive to their boundless aspirations. One Egyptian put it simply: Most people have discovered in the last few days…that they are worth something, and this cannot be taken away from them anymore, ever.

This is the power of human dignity, and it can never be denied. Egyptians have inspired us, and they’ve done so by putting the lie to the idea that justice is best gained through violence. For in Egypt, it was the moral force of nonviolence -- not terrorism, not mindless killing -- but nonviolence, moral force that bent the arc of history toward justice once more.

And while the sights and sounds that we heard were entirely Egyptian, we can’t help but hear the echoes of history -- echoes from Germans tearing down a wall, Indonesian students taking to the streets, Gandhi leading his people down the path of justice.

As Martin Luther King said in celebrating the birth of a new nation in Ghana while trying to perfect his own, “There is something in the soul that cries out for freedom.” Those were the cries that came from Tahrir Square, and the entire world has taken note.

Today belongs to the people of Egypt, and the American people are moved by these scenes in Cairo and across Egypt because of who we are as a people and the kind of world that we want our children to grow up in.

The word Tahrir means liberation. It is a word that speaks to that something in our souls that cries out for freedom. And forevermore it will remind us of the Egyptian people -- of what they did, of the things that they stood for, and how they changed their country, and in doing so changed the world.

革命的花朵 Flower Revolutions


Posted by Picasa





革命的花朵

“好一朵美麗的茉莉花,好一朵美麗的茉莉花,芬芳美麗滿枝椏,又香又白人人誇。” 《茉莉花》是一首為人所熟悉的民歌,可能早自清乾隆年間已經流傳,當李鴻章訪問歐洲時,曾被當作是“國歌”。在100年前, 由孫中山先生領導的辛亥革命,推翻了幾千年來的封建皇朝,建立亞洲第一個民主共和國,這應是世界第一場“茉莉花革命”。在無數次的革命起義中,以武昌起義為成功的起義,是推翻一個專制帝皇統治的暴力行動。

自上世紀末以降,因蘇聯解體而引發的顏色革命,席捲整個中亞世亞及東歐,甚至北非。其中有平和而柔滑如捷克的“天鵝絨革命”,其他革命均有一定的暴力成份,更以花卉或顏色而稱之,諸如格魯吉亞的玫瑰花革命、烏克蘭的栗子花革命、吉爾吉斯斯坦的郁金香革命,以至最近的突尼斯亞茉莉花革命。這些革命都有共同的特色,最初是由於人民不滿統治者,透過地方爪牙的高壓統治,開始在街上聚集,其他群眾感同身受,千呼百應,揭竿而起,推翻獨裁政權,令政府倒台,獨裁者成亡命之徒,出走他國。

試想一下,在一個失業率超過百份之20的國家,一名26歲的大學畢業生,為養活父親一家,淪落在街頭當小販,擺賣蔬果,因無牌經營,遭執法城管打壓,求生不得,到市府辦公廳外,把攜來的液體燃料,淋在自己身上,引火自焚抗議,後傷重不治,引起公憤。這個聽來似曾相識的故事,可能會是發生在中國,但是這次是在北非,一個名為突尼斯亞的回教國家。

較早時,維基解密已經揭露突尼斯亞總統班阿里家族,勾結黑道人物,掌控突尼斯亞的經濟,並指第一夫人興建貴族學校,因而獲得巨額利益,民怨四起。 在幾週內,這些醜聞,經口耳相傳,並在社交網站流散,民眾開始走上街頭,終演變為茉莉花革命。在青年自焚的一個月前,沒有人相信革命會是成功的,但是人民終於站起來了。不要說一些當權者還不自知,處境險惡,就連美國中情局,也開始從睡夢中,驚醒過來。

從北非突尼斯亞開始,整個地中海南岸的非洲北部,以至中東回教國家,產生了連串的多米諾骨牌效應,埃及是首當其衝。執政30年,一向親西方及接受美援的穆巴拉克,已經面臨倒台的危機,多個星期以來,群眾佔據開羅廣場,軍隊在戒備,為防止激進的穆斯林兄弟組織奪權,奧巴馬要求埃及總統,開始有秩序的過渡,讓出權力,放棄把權位傳予自己的兒子及不再參選。美國再在遲疑,局勢發展下去,當權者會利用支持者,挑起反美情緒,去轉移人民反政府的視線。

繼埃及之後,下一站便是也門了,而其他親美的產油國如沙特阿拉伯、科威特,亦會受到青年的示威浪潮沖擊,摩洛哥、阿爾及利亞、利比亞、約旦、敘利亞等國,無一悻免。互聯網、社交網絡群組成了召集群眾,散播政府貪腐、囚禁及虐待異議人士罪證的工具。在埃及發生反政府示威後,民群擋坦克的場面,情景太像天安門事件了,中國已進一步加強對互聯網的控制,“埃及”已成了敏感詞,已受到屏蔽。

當用人民鮮血澆灌的革命花朵盛開之際,好像穆巴拉克這面專政獨裁的旗幟,到底還能够打多久呢?在開羅解放廣場上聚集的25萬群眾,已給了一個明確的回答。似乎獨裁者僅有的出路,就是倉皇辭廟,與家人落難他國,渡過餘生,這就如突尼斯亞總統班阿里一樣。要不然,就好像羅馬尼亞壽西斯古的下場,就會是更加悲慘的了。

徐志摩 詩 / 范廣慧 唱

輕輕的我走了,
正如我輕輕的來;
我輕輕的招手,
作別西天的雲彩。

那河畔的金柳
是夕陽中的新娘
波光裡的艷影,
在我的心頭蕩漾。

軟泥上的青荇,
油油的在水底招搖;
在康河的柔波裡,
我甘心做一條水草

那榆蔭下的一潭,
不是清泉,是天上虹
揉碎在浮藻間,
沈澱著彩虹似的夢。

尋夢?
向青草更青處漫溯,
滿載一船星輝,
在星輝斑斕裡放歌
但我不能放歌,
悄悄是別離的笙簫;
夏虫也為我沉默,
沉默是今晚的康橋!

悄悄的我走了,
正如我悄悄的來;
我揮一揮衣袖,
不帶走一片雲彩。

Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again

Very quietly I take my leave
As quietly as I came here;
Quietly I wave good-bye
To the rosy clouds in the western sky.

The golden willows by the riverside
Are young brides in the setting sun;
Their reflections on the shimmering waves
Always linger in the depth of my heart.

The floating heart growing in the sludge
Sways leisurely under the water;
In the gentle waves of Cambridge
I would be a water plant!

That pool under the shade of elm trees
Holds not water but the rainbow from the sky;
Shattered to pieces among the duck weeds
Is the sediment of a rainbow-like dream?

To seek a dream?
Just to pole a boat upstream
Or to have the boat fully loaded with starlight
And sing aloud in the splendor of starlight.

But I cannot sing aloud
Quietness is my farewell music;
Even summer insects keep silence for me
Silent is Cambridge tonight!

Very quietly I take my leave
As quietly as I came here;
Gently I flick my sleeves
Not even a wisp of cloud will I bring away

小村之戀

曲/詞:莊奴

彎彎的小河
青青的山岡
依偎著小村莊
藍藍的天空
陣陣的花香
怎不叫人為你嚮往
啊 問故鄉
問故鄉別來是否無恙?
我時常時常地想念你
我願意 我願意回到你身旁
回到你身旁
美麗的村莊
美麗的風光
你常出現我的夢鄉
難忘的小河
難忘的山岡
難忘的小村莊
在那裡歌唱
在那裡成長
怎不叫人為你嚮往
啊 問故鄉
問故鄉別來是否無恙?
我時常時常地想念你
我願意 我願意回到你身旁
回到你身旁
美麗的村莊
美麗的風光
你常出現我的夢鄉

Unchained Melody(Melodia desencadenada...)

un clasico del año 1965...a color...


Lyric

Oh, my love
my darling
I've hungered for your touch
a long lonely time
and time goes by so slowly
and time can do so much
are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
Godspeed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea,
to the sea
to the open arms of the sea
lonely rivers sigh 'wait for me, wait for me'
I'll be coming home wait for me

Oh, my love
my darling
I've hungered for your touch
a long lonely time
and time goes by so slowly
and time can do so much
are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
Godspeed your love to me

Love Me With All Of Your Heart
by Engelbert Humperdinck

Love me with all of your heart
That's all I want, love
Love me with all of your heart
Or not at all

*Just promise me this
That you'll give me all your kisses
Every winter every summer
Every fall

When we are far apart
Or when you're near me
Love me with all of your heart
As I love you

Don't give me your love
For a moment or an hour
Love me always as you love me
From the start
With every beat of your heart*

Rep * ~~~~~~ *
