day's eye & lily

つぼみも満開も枯れた花も

2種類あればいいのに(A Piano)

先月発売になった豪華盤「A Piano」。

これの廉価版、つまり鍵盤箱がないコンパクトなCD5枚組が

後から出る模様。

Play.com に出ていますが、£だからUKだけみたいですね。

もしや、この5枚組に収められた曲数と、ピアノの鍵盤数は一致するのでは・・と思ってみたりしたのですが、収録曲は86曲。

鍵盤数は・・88鍵・・・!

そこまで合わせることは考えなかったんですね。

未発表曲だったうちの1曲「Take Me With You」。

この曲は、ファーストアルバム「Little Earthquakes」に収録する予定だったのが未完成のままで取りやめになった曲だそうです。

2006年に完全に完成させて今回リリースされたわけで、

メロディーは90年代らしい、でもまとまりのよい曲になってると思います。

 

In and out on this same path that I followed for years

Cant I look around and ask how could we still end up here

I cant just hold tight

Wait for them to cut us to ribbons

If the sharpest thing where you come is a blade of grass

 

Oh take me with you

I dont need shoes to follow

Bare feet running with you

Somewhere the rainbow ends my dear

 

These injuries

Dont you think we need a new referee

I cant let the ball drop

Boy I need some interference to shut them up

 

Oh take me with you

I dont need shoes to follow

Bare feet running with you

Somewhere the rainbow ends my dear

 

Oh take me with you

Chase rabbits into their burrow

Bare feet running with you

Today even the rain can cut me up

 

Tears turn to steal and the wound never heals

in the darkness of November

Well the witch is in the tower

And the snakes in the bower

And the hunt goes on forever

Now the stake is there to burn

My fathers robe is torn between cross and Mother

With the blood on your hands come on

What you doin

I am fed up with this questioning.

 

Oh take me with you

I dont need shoes to follow

Bare feet running with you

Somewhere the rainbow ends my dear

 

Oh take me with you

Chase rabbits into their burrow

Bare feet running with you today today

 

Oh take me with you

I dont need shoes to follow

Bare feet running with you

Today even the rain

Even the rain

Even the rain

Can cut me up
