Lullaby for a Stormy Night

Publié le par Tigrou

En furetant sur Radio Blog, je suis tombé sur une artiste que je ne connaissais pas et j'ai particulièrement aimé : Vienna Teng.

Par certains côtés, le style du morceau me rappelle un peu Tori Amos, une autre artiste dont j'apprécie particulièrement les albums (surtout quand j'ai un peu de spleen comme aujourd'hui). Un petit morceau très doux. Il va falloir que j'écoute ses autres morceaux dès que j'aurai l'occasion (sûrement un petit tour à la FNAC de Bellecour pour voir ...).

Je vous laisse les paroles ici :

Lullaby For a Stormy Night
words and music by Vienna Teng

little child, be not afraid
though rain pounds harshly against the glass
like an unwanted stranger, there is no danger
I am here tonight

little child, be not afraid
though thunder explodes and lightning flash
illuminates your tear-stained face
I am here tonight

and someday you'll know
that nature is so
the same rain that draws you near me
falls on rivers and land
on forests and sand
makes the beautiful world that you'll see
in the morning

little child, be not afraid
though storm clouds mask your beloved moon
and its candlelight beams, still keep pleasant dreams
I am here tonight

little child, be not afraid
though wind makes creatures of our trees
and their branches to hands, they're not real, understand
and I am here tonight

for you know, once even I was a
little child, and I was afraid
but a gentle someone always came
to dry all my tears, trade sweet sleep for fears
and to give a kiss goodnight

well now I am grown
and these years have shown
that rain's a part of how life goes
but it's dark and it's late
so I'll hold you and wait
'til your frightened eyes do close

and I hope that you'll know...

everything's fine in the morning
the rain'll be gone in the morning
but I'll still be here in the morning
