Saltwater by Julian Lennon

這首單曲是outsider一直很喜歡的一首歌,收錄在Julian Lennon於1991年發表的《Help Yourself》專輯裡;雖然已超十五年,但你會發現裡面所探討的環保議題和現在沒什麼兩樣,看來人類在經過了近兩個世代依然沒什麼長進,明明心知肚明現在圖自己方便的所作所為,會破壞後代子孫的生活環境,但卻仍短視近利、一意孤行地持續著一定會破壞自然環境的作為。
請靜下心來聆聽這首歌,除了欣賞它令人動容的旋律外,也要仔細閱讀它的歌詞,體會其所以要傳達的理念。
Love The Earth.

Saltwater
- - Lyrics & Music: J.Lennon/M.Spiro/L.Spiro

We are a rock revolving around a golden sun
We are a billion children rolled into one
So when I hear about the hole in the sky
Saltwater wells in my eyes

We climb the highest mountain
We'll make the desert bloom
We're so ingenious
We can walk on the moon
But when I hear of how the forests have died
Saltwater wells in my eyes

I have lived for love
But now that's not enough
For the world I love is dying (and now I'm crying)
And time is not a friend (no friend of mine)
As friends we're out of time
And it's slowly passing by......
Right before our eyes

We light the deepest ocean
Send photographs of Mars
We're so enchanted by how clever we are
Why should one baby feel so hungry she cries
Saltwater wells in my eyes

I have lived for love
But now that's not enough
For the world I love is dying (and now I'm crying)
And time is not a friend (no friend of mine)
As friends we're out of time
And it's slowly passing by......
Right before our eyes

We are a rock revolving around a golden sun
We are a billion children rolled into one
What will I think of me the day that I die
Saltwater wells in my eyes

Saltwater wells in my eyes
