每個人心中都有一個Superwoman

這麼多人翻唱Karyn white的Superwoman,不論在哪個階段,唱的人與歌詞對於自己總有不同的意義,詮釋的也都不斷的喚起心中曾留下的,音樂庫裡有著不同版本,但每首都值得一聽再聽。

Karyn white的代表作。這首歌曾在1989年奪得全美節奏藍調榜冠軍

Early in the morning I put breakfast at your table
And make sure that your coffee has its sugar and cream
Your eggs are over easy, your toast done lightly
All that’s missing is your morning kiss
That use to greet me

Now you say the juice is sour
It used to be so sweet
And I can’t help but to wonder
If you’re talking about me

We don’t talk the way we used to talk
It’s hurting so deep
I’ve got my pride
I will not cry
But it’s making me weak

*I’m not your superwoman
I’m not the kind of girl that you can let down
And think that everything’s okay
Boy, I am only human
This girl needs more than occasional hugs
As a token of love from you to me

Ooh, baby…

I fought my way through the rush hour
Trying to make it home just for you
I want to make sure
That your dinner will be waiting for you
But when you get there you just tell me
You’re not hungry at all
You said you’d rather read the paper
And you don’t want to talk

You’d like to think I’m just crazy
When I say that you’ve changed
I’m convinced I know the problem
You don’t love me the same
You’re just going through the motions
And you’re not being fair
I’ve got my pride
I will not cry
Still I can’t help but care (*)

Ooh baby, look into the corners of your mind
I’ll always be there for you
Through good and bad times
But I can’t be that superwoman that you want me to be
I’ll give my love, oh lasting love
If you’ll return love to me (*)

Ah ha, If you feel it in your heart
And you understand me
Stop right where you are
Everybody sing along with me!

I’m the kind of girl that can treat you so sweet
But you’ve got to realize
That you’ve got to be sweeter to me, yeah
I need love
I need just your love (*)

王菲的多得他是牧鴿在KTV必點之作,慢慢感受林夕老師字詞內的含意,動人,現在原唱帶已經在KTV絕跡了

當初初給他的雙手抱我那一瞬 
曾軟軟笑笑但不知所措卻竟相信
在世界我最軟弱 所以要他相擁
就讓我那懶懶身軀躲進臂彎之中

無論現實或是造夢 都給他每秒操縱
從來沒發覺 他的呼吸催促我變得多蠢
誤信了我弱質纖纖 隨便也感動
並未知道我也可以完全麻木放縱

多得他給我勇氣 真的要多得他
去使我懂得 每一個故事結尾
無非別離 總是別離 失去他先知
我也可不需要那臂彎不哭也不生氣

我最初天天只等他將體溫軀去我寒意
還承認我太怕冷要靠愛侶輸出暖意
誰料到今天只得一個仍然可以生活
若是感到四處太冷漠 穿上我的冬衣

我最初抓緊他的雙手 從來不愛自由
能讓我永遠地擁有 已覺真的富有
那料這日抹掉眼淚也要靠我的手
即使他已愛我多久 仍會高飛遠走

OH BABY 他的愛意反覆改變我
也許相戀得太多 人亦漸漸不知對錯
天生孤單過路再上路也不清楚
要看得清楚卻不必需要那點戀火
多得他不再愛我

(OH NO NO NO!THE KIND OF GIRL THAT YOU CAN LET DOWN
THINKING EVERYTHING IS OK I’M ONLY HUMAN)

(OH GOOD GOOD GOOD CAUSE YOU CAN’T
DON’T LET ME DON’T YOU LET ME DOWN
I’M ONLY HUMAN)

(OH NO OH NO OH THE KIND OF GIRL
THAT YOU CAN LET DOWN THINKING EVERYTHING IS OK.
I’M ONLY HUMAN. THAT GIRL IS MORE THAN OCCASIONAL
HEARTS AS A JOKEN OF LOVE
OH IF YOU FEEL IT IN YOUR HEART
AND YOU UNDERSTAND ME STOP RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE
EVERYBODY SING ALONG WITH ME)

最後這個版本是歌好,MV也精采的曹格,周格泰導演的音樂錄影帶總是可以讓我們前奏的時候多喝幾杯,但這部MV真的讓人印象深刻,搭配曹格的詮釋,男版的Superwoman。

Early in the morning, I put breakfast at your table
一夜都沒睡但我 不曾如此清醒
我早餐準備了你 愛吃的東西
這次換我等你被咖啡 的香味叫醒

想要找回每天早晨 對我微笑著的你
還能夠 做些什麼代替我的歉意
總是望著我 小心翼翼 順著我呼吸
而我竟然理所當然 讓你精疲力盡

You were my superwoman
安靜的在身邊 無條件給我 夢寐以求的溫柔
But I am only human((可惜我只是一個人)
我怎麼不懂你多寂寞 殘忍的犯了錯
不能失去你 Ooh—Babe—

You fought your way through the rush hour
Try to make it home just for me
月光下靜靜靠著彼此 只求夜長一點
有多久沒有好好看你 只是認定了我
無論在什麼時候回頭 都有你的笑容

是我忽略了你也會有 想要哭的感覺
沒有一種付出應該永遠心甘情願
再給被寵壞的男人最後一次機會
換我忍耐換我等待 不要真的棄權

(—Baby)是我把愛想得太簡單
以為只要我存在就能讓你取暖
心裏唯一的superwoman沒有人能代替
不能想像更不能原諒這樣讓愛化成 灰煙

If you feel it in your heart and you understand me.
STOP right where you are, everybody sing along with me.
