Cat Power  

 

 

Cat Power – Ruin (2012)

 

美國喬治亞州唱作女伶Chan Marshall,化名為Cat Power,靠著獨特慵懶的南方嗓音,帶有藍調、靈魂味的搖滾曲調和真誠深切的歌詞,出道20年來擄獲不少獨立樂迷的心。

 

睽違6年,Cat Power推出全新創作專輯《Sun》,一如專輯名稱,她表示這張專輯的意義在於揮別過去陰霾,重新開始並自信地邁向未來。而她亦以身作則,剪去一頭煩惱絲,給人充滿朝氣活力之感。

 

無論過去是多麼的令人感到失望與無助,年屆不惑之年的Cat Power以其人生經歷告訴我們,黑夜過去,黎明終會來臨。

Cat Power – Ruin

 

I’ve seen gypsies who made it all the way

And kept going, kept rolling with nowhere to go

Nowhere to go.

 

As far as I’ve seen from the bush

In the wilderness, to every known city

I’ve been to Saudi Arabia, Dhaka, Calcutta

Soweto, Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome

Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain

Belfast, to the desert, Spain, Tokyo

Some little bitty island in the middle of the Pacific

All the way back home, to my town

To my town

Bitching, complaining when some people who ain’t got shit to eat

Bitching, moaning, so many people you know they got

 

What are we doing?

We’re sitting on a ruin

What are we doing?

We’re sitting on a ruin

 

As far as I’ve seen, from the bush

The wilderness, to every known city

I’ve been to Saudi Arabia, Dhaka, Calcutta

Soweto, Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome

Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain

Belfast, to the desert, Spain, Tokyo

Some little bitty island in the middle of the Pacific

All the way back home, to my town

To my town

Bitching, complaining when some people who ain’t got shit to eat

Bitching, moaning, so many people you know that they got

 

What are we doing?

We’re sitting on a ruin

What are we doing?

We’re sitting on a ruin

 

What are we doing?

We’re sitting on a ruin

What are we doing?

We’re sitting on a ruin
