(-_-)3 "Come From the Heart" - Guy Clark


Dance like no one is watching
Love like you’ve never been hurt
Sing like no one is listening
Live like it’s heaven on earth





"Come From The Heart"
songwriters: Susanna Clark / Richard Leigh
album: "Old Friends" (1988)

When I was a young man my daddy told me
A lesson he learned, it was a long time ago
If you want to have someone to hold onto
You're gonna have to learn to let go

[Chorus]
You got to sing like you don't need the money
Love like you'll never get hurt
You got to dance like nobody's watchin'
It's gotta come from the heart if you want it to work

Now here is the one thing that I keep forgetting
When everything is falling apart
In life as in love, you know I need to remember
There's such a thing as trying too hard

[Chorus]











這陣子腦中一直浮現 "dance like nobody’s watching, sing like no one is listening" 這句話,於是想上網找完整文句和來源,找到以下這篇,
 

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching
Mark Twain? Satchel Paige? William Purkey? Susanna Clark? Richard Leigh? Anonymous?

原來這段引言出處並非 Mark Twain, William Purkey (XD不認識~),或不知名的 Buddhist Monk,因為都沒有充分的證據與文書記錄支持,這首歌的作者 Richard Leigh 也曾發表強烈聲明,表明這首歌完全是原創的。也就是說,所讀到的這段引言,是由這首歌歌詞所衍生出去的。


說起來探索這好像沒什麼,其實這常常讓我感到很神奇呢!感受到許多不同時空的人事物真的可以在同一時空出現!下一個不預期遇到的驚喜是什麼!就像聽到這首歌 :) 。Guy Clark歌聲雖不再年輕,卻更加內斂深厚。

他的妻子,也是此歌曲創作者人之一,她是 Guy Clark 人生中最重要的女性,也是他們音樂圈裡激發靈感的河流。
