Yesterday Once More 專輯

Yesterday Once More


Written:Richard Carpenter/John Bettis

When I was young
I'd listen to the radio
Waitin' for my favorite songs
When they played I'd sing along
It made me smile.

Those were such happy times
And not so long ago
How I wondered where they'd gone
But they're back again
Just like a long lost friend
All the songs I loved so well.

Every Sha-la-la-la
Every Wo-o-wo-o
Still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're startin' to sing's
So fine.

When they get to the part
Where he's breakin' her heart
It can really make me cry
Just like before
It's yesterday once more.

Lookin' back on how it was
In years gone by
And the good times that I had
Makes today seem rather sad
So much has changed.

It was songs of love that
I would sing to then
And I'd memorize each word
Those old melodies
Still sound so good to me
As they melt the years away.

Every Sha-la-la-la
Every Wo-o-wo-o
Still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're startin' to sing's
So fine.

All my best memories
Come back clearly to me

Some can even make me cry.

Just like before
It's yesterday once more.

[中譯]

往日重現

當我年輕的時候
聽著收音機
等待著我最喜愛的歌
當它播放時我獨自跟唱
讓我心情愉快起來

就像那些快樂時光
驚訝消失的無影無蹤
但當它們回來時
就像是久沒聯絡的朋友一樣
這都是我喜歡的歌

每個Sha-la-la-la
每個Wo-o-wo-o
記憶依鮮明
每個shing-a-ling-a-ling
節奏依然美好

當故事到了那個段落
他傷了她的心
讓我流下淚來
就像從前
往日重現

Superstar


Written:Leon Russell/Bonnie Bramlett

Long ago, and, oh, so far away
I fell in love with you before the second show.
Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear,
but you're not really here.
It's just the radio.

Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh, baby.
I love you, I really do.

Loneliness is such a sad affair,
and I can hardly wait to be with you again.
What to say, to make you come again?
Come back to me again, and play your sad guitar.

Rainy Days And Mondays


Written:Paul Williams/Roger Nichols

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

What I've got they used to call the blues
Nothin' is really wrong
Feelin' like I don't belong
Walkin' around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me.

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it's all about
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Goodbye To Love


Written:Richard Carpenter/John Bettis

I'll say goodbye to love
No one ever cared if I should live or die
Time and time again the chance for love has passed me by
And all I know of love is how to live without it
I just can't seem to find it

So I've made my mind up I must live my life alone
And though it's not the easy way
I guess I've always known
I'd say goodbye to love

There are no tomorrows for this heart of mine
Surely time will lose these bitter memories
And I'll find that there is someone to believe in
And to live for something I could live for

All the years of useless search
Have finally reached an end
Loneliness and empty days will be my only friend
From this day love is forgotten
I'll go on as best I can

What lies in the future is a mystery to us all
No one can predict the wheel of fortune as it falls
There may come a time when I will see that I've been wrong
But for now this is my song

And it's goodbye to love
I'll say goodbye to love

It's Going To Take Some Time


Lyrics:Carole King/Toni Stern
Music:Carole King/Toni Stern

It's gonna take some time this time
To get myself in shape.
I really fell out of line this time,
I really missed the gate.
The birds on the telephone like, (next time)
Are cryin' out to me, (next time)
And I won't be so blind next time,
And I'll find some harmony.

But it's going to take some time this time,
And I can't make demands.
But, like the young trees in the winter time,
I'll learn how to bend.
After all the tears we've spent,
How could we make amends?
So, it's one more round for experience
And I'm on the road again,
And it's going to take some time this time!

But it's going to take some time this time,
No matter what I've planned.
And, like the young trees in the winter time,
I'll learn how to bend.
After all the tears we've spent,
How could we make amends?
So, it's one more round for experience
And I'm on the road again,
And it's going to take some time this time!

Want You Back In My Life Again


Written:Kerry Chater/Chris Christian

You know it doesn't seem that long ago
That I had your love and let it go
And I really let you down I know
I'm losin' your love

I guess it took a while for me to see
What it is you really mean to me
I've been as big a fool as I can be
For losing your love

Chorus
I want you back in my life again
I don't want to be your remember when
I want you back in my life again
Let's go back to the place where it all began
I've lived long enough with your memory
Now I know that I need you here with me.

There was a time I thought I had it made
But I didn't see the price I had paid
And the price gets higher ev'ry day
And all I can say is

You're the only one who knows my heart
So let's take it right back to the start
And I won't have to play the part
Of losing your love.

(repeat chorus)

You're the only one who knows my heart
So let's take it right back to the start
And I won't have to play the part
Of losing your love.

I want you back in my life again
I don't want to be your remember when
I want you back in my life again
Let's go back to the place where it all began
I've lived long enough with your memory
Now I know that I want you, know that I need you
Back in my life

Ticket To Ride


Lyrics:John Lennon
Music:John Lennon

I think I'm gonna be sad
I think it's today Yeah
The boy that's driving me mad is going away.

He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
and he don't care.

He said that living with me
was bringing him down Yeah
He would never be free
when I was around.

He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride
and he don't care.

Don't know why he's riding so high
He oughta do right
He oughta do right by me
Before he gets to saying goodbye
He oughta do right
He oughta do right by me

I think I'm gonna be sad
I think it's today Yeah
The boy that's driving me mad is going away.

He's got a ticket to ride
He's got a ticket to ride

Sweet, Sweet Smile


Lyrics:Juice Newton/Othat Young
Music:Juice Newton/Othat Young

You're always in my heart
From early in the mornin' til it's dark
I gotta see your sweet, sweet smile every day

When I wake up in the mornin'
And I see you there
I always whisper a little prayer
I gotta see your sweet, sweet smile every day

And that you want me
And that you'll always be there
I've gotta know that you care

## And I gotta feel your arms around me
And that you need me
And that you'll always be there
I've gotta know that you care

If my times bring me down
You're the only one that I want around
I gotta see your sweet, sweet smile every day

And if I'll all strung out
You're the only one who can straighten me out
I gotta see your sweet, sweet smile every day

I Won't Last A Day Without You


Written:Paul Williams/Roger Nichols

Day after day I must face a world of strangers
Where I don't belong, I'm not that strong
It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to
Who will always care, you're always there

When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

So many times when the city seems to be without a friendly face
A lonely place
It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you
And you'll always smile, it's all worthwhile

When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

Touch me and I end up singing
Troubles seem to up and disappear
You touch me with the love you're bringing
I can't really lose when you're near

If all my friends have forgotten half their promises
They're not unkind, just hard to find
One look at you and I know that I could learn to live
Without the rest, I found the best

When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

When there's no getting over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

For All We Know


Written:Fred Karlin/Robb Wilson/Arthur James

Love, look at the two of us
Strangers in many ways
We've got a lifetime to share
So much to say
And as we go
From day to day
I'll feel you close to me
But time alone will tell
Let's take a lifetime to say
'I knew you well'
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow
For all we know.

Touch Me When We're Dancing


Written:Terry Skinner/J.L.Wallace/Ken Bell

Play us a song we can slow dance on
We want to hold each other
Play us a groove so we hardly move
Just let our hearts beat together
Oh, baby, 'cause it feel so good
When we're close like this
Whisper in my ear and let me steal a kiss

Come on and touch me
When we're dancing
You know you've got that loving touch(loving touch)
Touch me when we're dancing
I want to feel you when I'm falling in love.

Tonight's the night and it feels so right
My heart is saying it to me
You're the one I've waited for so long
So let your love flow through me
Oh, baby 'cause it feels so good
Just to be this close
You've got me up so high
I could fly cost to coast

Hurting Each Other


Lyrics:Peter Udell/Gary Geld
Music:Peter Udell/Gary Geld

No one in the world
Ever had a love as sweet as my love
For nowhere in the wolrd
Could there be a boy as true as you love
All my love
I give gladly to you
All your love
You give gladly to me
Tell me why then
Oh why should it be that

We go on hurting each other
We go on hurting each other
Making each other cry
Hurting each other
Without ever knowing why

Close than the leaves
On a weepin' willow, baby, we are
Closer dear are we
Than the simple letters 'A' and 'B' are
All my life
I could love only you
All your life
You could love only me
Tell me why than
Oh why should it be that

We go on hurting each other
We go on hurting each other
Making each other cry
Hurting each other
Without ever knowing why

Can't we stop hurting each other
Gotta stop hurting each other
Making each other cry
Breaking each other's heart
Tearing each other apart

請等一下,郵差先生

袋子裡是不是有我的信?

為什麼讓我等這麼久
只為了等我男友的音訊

今天應該有隻字片語
來自我那遠方的男友
等一下,郵差先生,請查查看
是不是有信件是寄給我的?

我一直站在這兒耐心的等待郵差先生
只為了一張明信片或一封信
告訴我他將回到家裡
你從我面前經過這麼多天了
看見我眼裡的淚水
卻不曾停下來安慰我
給我一封明信片或信件

為何你不再為我查看一遍?
你一定得等一下
請等一下,等一下

快給我一封信,越快越好

I Need To Be In Love


Written:R.Carpenter/John Bettis/Albert Hammond

The hardest thing I've ever done is keep believing
There's someone in this crazy world for me
The way that people come and go through temporary lives
My chance could come and I might never know

I used to say 'No promises, let's keep it simple'
But freedom only helps you say goodbye
It took a while for me to learn that nothing comes for free
The price I paid is high enough for me

* I know I need to be in love
I know I've wasted too much time
I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that's what I'll find

+ So here I am with pockets full of good intentions
But none of them will comfort me tonight
I'm wide awake at 4 a.m. without a friend in sight
I'm hanging on a hope but I'm all right

repeat *
repeat +

All You Get From Love Is A Love Song


Lyrics:Steve Eaton
Music:Steve Eaton

Like sailin' on a sailin' ship to nowhere,
Love took over my heart like an ocean breeze.
As season fly I knew that I was losing
Love was washed away with the driftin tide.

Oh it's a dirty old shame that all you get from love is a love song
It's gotcha layin up nights waiting for the music to start.
It's such a dirty old shame when you got to take the blame for a love song.
Because the best love song is writing with a broken heart.

Now the tears in my eyes are ever blindin'
The future that lies before me I cannot see
Although tomorrow I know the sun is rising
Lightin' up the world for everyone, but not for me.

Only Yesterday


Written:Richard Carpenter/John Bettis

After long enough of being alone,
Ev'ryone must face their share of loneliness.
In my own time nobody knew
the pain I was goin' thru,
And watin' was all my heart could do.

Hope was all I had until you came,
Maybe you can't see how much you mean to me.
You were the dawn breaking the night
The promise of morning light.
Filling the world surrounding me

Baby, baby,
your love's made me
free as a song,
singin' for ever.

(chorus)
Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely,
You showed me the way to leave the past
and all it's tears behind me.
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
since I threw my sadness away.
Only yesterday

This Masquerade


Lyrics:Leon Russell
Music:Leon Russell

Are we really happy with this lonely game we play,
Looking for the right words to say?
Searching but not finding -- understanding anyway,
We're lost in this masquerade.

Both afraid to say we're just too far away
From being close together from the start.
We try to talk it over, but the words got in the way
We're lost inside this lonely game we play.

Thoughts of leaving disappear each time I see your eyes,
And no matter how hard I try
To understand the reason why we carry on this way
We're lost in this masquerade.

We try to talk it over, but the words got in the way
We're lost inside this lonely game we play.

We're lost in a masquerade.
And we're lost in a masquerade.

Top Of The World


Written:Richard Carpenter/John Bettis
Arranger:Richard Carpenter

Such a feeling's coming over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

(*)I'm on the top of the world looking down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's telling me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There's a pleasing sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

Because We Are In Love (The Wedding Song)


Written:Richard Carpenter/John Bettis

Children
It was more fun to be children
We just took life as it happened
Run thru the days
Don't look behind
Over wink of an eye and it's over
What a surprise to discover
We were people ourselves
What kind of people did we want to be
No answer ever come to me.

I didn't sleep at all last night
Mom, I've come to you like yesterday
About today
Hon, come and sit by my side
Listen to me
Words come so hard
But what my hear says
I will give you.

Because you are in love
Your eyes begin to open
As is you had awoken from a sleep
Because you are in love
You use imagination
And lose you concentration
When someone drops his name
You're back in his arms as always
Your day - dreams work out that way
It's all just a trick you mind plays
The more love grows
The more it stays the same

(Same little girl who's frightened)
But I love him so
(Same little girl who's sure)
That she loves him so
(Sees with a woman's vision knows what a woman knows)

Because we are in love
We've reach for our tomorrow's
And know we won't be lonely
In laugher and in sorrows
Where love abides
There is the place we'll keep our home forever
You and I
Because we are in love.
Where love abides

We've Only Just Begun


Written:Paul Williams/Roger Nichols

We've only just begun to live,
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we're on our way.
And yes, We've just begun.

Before the rising sun we fly,
So many roads to choose
We start our walking and learn to run.
And yes, We've just begun.

Sharing horizons that are new to us,
Watching the signs along the way,
Talking it over just the two of us,
Working together day to day
Together.

And when the evening comes we smile,
So much of life ahead
We'll find a place where there's room to grow,
And yes, We've just begun.

Those Good Old Dreams


Written:Richard Carpenter/John Bettis

As a child I was known for makes-believing
All alone I created fantasies
As I grew people called it self deceiving
But my heart helped me hold the memories

As I walk through the world I find around me
Something new yet familiar's in the air
I feel it everywhere

Like a child's eyes on a Christmas night
I'm looking at you now finding answers to my prayers

It's a new day for those good old dreams
One by one it seems they're coming true
Here's the morning that my heart had seen
Here's the morning that just had to come through

Sing of good things not bad
Sing of happy not sad.

Sing, sing a song

Good enough for anyone

They Long To Be Close To You


Lyrics:Burt Bacharach/Hal David
Music:Burt Bacharach/Hal David

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.
Just like me (Just like me)
They long to be
Close to you.

Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
Hahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.
Lahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you.

到處都跟隨著你
