在倫敦希斯路機場的上空


 

 在航機的下面








藉著欣賞航機下所看到

倫敦希斯魯機場附近美麗的郊野,

我誠意獻上

新西蘭著名年輕女歌手

 Hayley Westenra

所創作並主唱的 Let me lie。

 Hayley Westenra

的祖輩來自愛爾蘭,

自小受祖母的影響,

童年為英國傳統的民歌所熏陶。

在倫敦的一個美麗和陽光普照的六月天,

她躺臥在朋友家中的草地上,

即時感受到無此平靜和舒泰,

Let me lie 就在此刻誕生。

Let me lie 旋律帶著濃厚的 Celtic 韻味,

歌詞細說她與這土地的情懷。






愛上一片土地,

愛上一個國度,

往往由她的歷史和文化開始,




但對於一個外來人來說,

歌曲往往更容易把人吸引過來。
























"Let Me Lie"

by
Hayley Westenra


Let me lie on grasses green
On my mother earth I lean

Let me lie on grasses green
On my mother earth I lean

Under burning sun
Through my veins she runs

Let me breathe the forest air
It's the life force that we all share
Feel my burning tears

Heal me through as I lie
Here with you
Heal me through
Let me sleep and keep me close

Heal me through as I lie
Here with you
Heal me through
Let me sleep and keep me close

Let me lie on grasses green
On my mother earth I lean
Under burning sun
Through my veins she runs

Heal me through as I lie
Here with you
Heal me through
Let me sleep and keep me close

Heal me through as I lie
Here with you
Heal me through
Let me sleep and keep me close

Let me lie on grasses green
On my mother earth I lean
Under burning sun
Through my veins she runs

Heal me through as I lie
Here with you
Heal me through
Let me sleep and keep me close

Heal me through as I lie
Here with you
Heal me through
Let me sleep and keep me close

Under burning sun
Through my veins she runs
Her and I are one.























Hayley Westenra
(A famous young New Zealand singer)

My forefathers, who came from Ireland , were on the Midlothian's maiden voyage
from England to Christchurch , New Zealand in 1851.
My grandmother used to sit me on her knee and sing songs like
"Danny Boy" from as early as I can remember, and each one had a fascinating story of its own.
A singer herself in her earlier years, she has always been a never-ending source of songs,
and she travelled round the country picking up new songs to perform.
 It's this legacy of music that she's been passing down to me since my childhood,
and it's many of these beautiful old songs that I've explored here on my new album.



Let Me Lie
"This is an original song that I co-wrote with Sarah Class,
 who arranged the music for my first album, Pure.
It was a beautiful sunny June day in London .
 I was staying round at a friend's place and the sun
was begging me to go outside so I went and lay down on the grass,
which I hadn't done for a while, and I immediately felt at peace.
The song describes the connection we have with the earth."
