Another day In Paradise – Phil Collins

一首献给全世界无家可归者的名曲,歌曲象一首叙事诗,通过Phil Collins充满感情的歌声,表达了对弱者的同情和对“天堂”社会里的阴暗面的思考. 柯林斯嗓音浑厚、充满激情,深受歌迷喜爱。这是菲尔·柯林斯1990年的力作之一,荣居排行榜冠军数周,从而奠定了菲尔在西洋流行歌坛“抒情才子”的宝座地位。歌中描写了一个流离失所、无处过夜的女子向过路人求救却遭拒绝的一幕,是一首具有很强现实主义的歌曲。
歌中唱到: 你能看到她脸上的皱纹, 你可以想像她在那里已很久, 或许她曾被迫四处漂流, 因为她找不到安身之所. 菲尔说:相比之下,我们就像生活在天堂一样,而帮助这些可怜的人,只是我们应该做,而且也能够做到的事情.

试听: Another day In Paradise - Phil Collins

歌词:
She calls out to the man on the street,
“Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?”

He walks on, doesn't look back,
He pretends he can't hear her,
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street,
Seems embarrassed to be there.

Oh, think twice,
It's another day for you and me in paradise.
Oh, think twice,
It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise,
Just think about it.

She calls out to the man on the street,
He can see she's been crying,
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet,
She can't walk, but she's trying.

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do,
Oh lord, there must be something you can say.

You can tell from the lines on her face,
You can see that she's been there.
Probably been moved on from every place,
Because she didn't fit in there.

Oh, think twice,
It's another day for you and me in paradise.
Oh, think twice,
It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise,
Just think about it.
