music in you

 今朝 Last.fm で音楽を流していたら、
 (ちなみに「The Police」ってキーワードで流してた…にも関わらず、、)
 Heart の曲が流れてきて、
 僕は聞いたことない曲だったんだけど、すごく歌詞が好きで。

 「I'll Be Your Song」って曲。

 サビのフレーズが好きだなぁ

  if you love me like music
  I'll be your song

 ちなみに歌詞はこんなふう
 (ネットですぐ調べれるから 今って便利)

  I'll Be Your Song

These have been quiet days
When was the last time i wanted to sing
Last few dying days hanging on - what will they bring?
Even you and me
We keep coming apart
And it's a wrong thing
We goota look right at each other and say it
Turn on the radio and play it
And fall in love again

  Can you feel the light shine
  You now this song's yours and mine
  Ain't it good to know you've got a place to go
  Where the melody's fine
  Sometimes i'm not so strong
  And even now i could be wrong
  But if you love me like music
  I'll be your song

Lately the day's been grey
And time's been hard
Man up in town putting everybody down
Watch him play his card
When you get free come on home to me
I'm gonna lay it down
We got love - we've got to feel it and show it
Make each other really know it
And fall in love again
We've got to be friends


 musicって言葉を使った歌詞には、もうひとつ僕の大好きな歌詞があって(曲も好き)、
 それは、 New Radicals の「 You Get What You Give 」

Wake up kids
We've got the dreamers disease
Age fourteen
They got you down on your knees
So polite
We're busy still saying please

Frienemies
Who when you're down ain't your friend
Every night
We smash their mercedes benz
First we run
And then we laugh 'till we cry


But when the night is falling
And you cannot find the light
you feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight

You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget we only get what we give


[I'm comin' home baby]
[You're tops, give it to me now]


Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
We're flat broke
But hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God's flying in for your trial


But when the night is falling
And you cannot find a friend
You feel your tree is breaking
Just bend

You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give


This whole damn world can fall apart
You'll be ok follow your heart
You're in harms way I'm right behind
Now say you're mine


You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give
Don't let go
I feel the music in you
Fly high


What's real can't die

We only get what we give
You're gonna get what you give
Just dont be afraid to live

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
courtney love and marilyn manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in



 You've got the music in you とか I feel the music in you だとか、One dance left なんてフレーズが僕はたまらなく好きだ。
 それで、今日 Heart の歌をきいてて、New Radicals を思い出した。
 Elton John の Your Song もいい歌だけどね。


 僕と仲のよい友達は、僕が大の The Police ファンだということを知っているけど、そしてそれは彼らが思っている以上に本当だけど(大の、というより、大大大大大…の、だからね)、

 しかしもし僕がなれるとしたら、
 神さまが出てきて同じ才能をくれるとしたら、
 実は僕は Sting よりも、Gregg Alexander みたいになりたい。

 Gregg Alexander は、New Radicals の全ての曲を書いてプロデュースして、ボーカルもとってるんだけど、
 僕は彼の曲も詞も好きだし、歌えるものなら彼のような歌い方がしたい。(ちょっとムリ過ぎるんだけど ^^;)


 英語のいい詞というのと、日本語のいい詞というのは、ちょっと違うんだけど、Gregg Alexander の書く(当然英語の)詞はほんとに好きだ。

 New Radicals の同じアルバムでは、「Someday We'll Know」って曲があるんだけど、これの歌詞も僕は大好き。

 Someday we'll know Why the sky is blue Someday we'll know Why I wasn't meant for you 〜


90 miles outside Chicago
Can't stop driving
I don't know why
So many questions
I need an answer
Two years later
You're still on my mind

Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart?
Who holds the stars up in the sky?
Is true love just once in a lifetime?
Did the captain of the Titanic cry?


  Someday we'll know if love can move a mountain
  Someday we'll know why the sky is blue
  Someday we'll know why I wasn't meant for you


Does anybody know the way to Atlantis
Or what the wind says when she cries?
I'm speeding by the place that I met you
For the 97th time tonight


  Someday we'll know if love can move a mountain
  Someday we'll know why the sky is blue
  Someday we'll know why I wasn't meant for you
  Someday we'll know why Samson loved Delilah
  One day I'll go dancing on the moon
  Someday you'll know that I was the one for you


I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow
I watched the stars crash in the sea
If I could ask God just one question
Why aren't you here with me tonight?


  Someday we'll know if love can move a mountain
  Someday we'll know why the sky is blue
  Someday we'll know why I wasn't meant for you

  Someday we'll know why Samson loved Delilah
  One day I'll go dancing on the moon
  Someday you'll know that I was the One for you



 ちなみに、Last.fmでも試聴できます。Last.fm - New Radicals

 それか、タグかアーティストに New Radicals か Gregg Alexander って入れてラジオにしてたら、うまく出てきてフルできけるかも。(違うのもいっぱいかかるけど ^^;)


 あ〜
 いい詞を書きたいなー
 Gregg Alexander みたいに歌いたいなー
 あはは ^^)


↓いま見たら、Amazonは全曲試聴できるみたい
