新歌推介 - In the Rain

Catholic Insider中聽到Christine MollIn the Rain,簡直是一聽傾心。在未知道歌詞前,只道這是一首悅耳的中板balladChristine Moll的演譯隱隱透出悲痛。這感覺在得知歌詞之後和背後的故事得到証實;我不由自主地哭了。(係,我認,我係眼淺,無辦法)


容我引以下一段評語
:

The first track, "In the Rain," is a perfect introduction to Christine's voice and excellent songwriting. The song is dedicated to the memory of a woman who died at age 23 and tells of how difficult it is to "believe that she won't be back." The minor chords on the electric guitar and finger-picked countermelody on the acoustic, along with the gentle piano, sets such a melancholy mood that it's impossible not to get caught up in this one. Christine backs up her own vocal lead with soaring tones that sound like cries in the distance. Every time I play this I lose six minutes of productive time.

Enough said,誠意推薦。


In the Rain
Written and Lyrics by Christine Moll

It's been over a year and it still feels new
Everywhere I go I think I still see you
I keep waiting for the day when I hear that knock
I open the door and there you are

*And it's hard to say she won't be back this way
And it's hard to believe she won't be back before I leave
She went out, she went out in the rain

When the thunder hits the clouds in the lightning sky
There's a light behind the rain and I know why
She is saying I am free don't worry about me
I am happy and you should be

*Repeat

I've got this picture of you in my living room
This is how I remember you
With your arms outstretched to the sky above
You were always ready to live, to laugh, and to love

*Repeat
She is dancing in the rain
She is laughing in the rain
She is living in the rain
