Like A Rock. (Bob Seger)

Like A Rock.     (By Bob Seger)
 
Stood there boldly
Sweatin’ in the sun
Felt like a million
Felt like number one
The height of summer
I’d never felt that strong
Like a rock
 
 
I was eighteen
Didn’t have a care
Working for peanuts
Not a dime to spare
But I was lean and
Solid everywhere
Like a rock
 
 
My hands were steady
My eyes were clear and bright
My walk had purpose
My steps were quick and light
And I held firmly
To what I felt was right
Like a rock
 
 
Like a rock, I was strong as I could be
Like a rock, nothin’ ever got to me
Like a rock, I was something to see
Like a rock
 
 
And I stood arrow straight
Unencumbered by the weight
Of all these hustlers and their schemes
I stood proud, I stood tall
High above it all
I still believed in my dreams
 
 
Twenty years now
Where’d they go?
twenty years
I don’t know
I sit and wonder sometimes
Where they’ve gone
 
 
And sometimes late at night
When I’m bathed in the firelight
The moon comes callin’ a ghostly white
And I recall
I recall
 
 
Like a rock. standin’ arrow straight
Like a rock, chargin’ from the gate
Like a rock, carryin’ the weight
Like a rock
 
 
Lihe a rock, the sun upon my skin
Like a rock, hard against the wind
Like a rock, I see myself again
Like a rock

很好聽的一首歌,雖然對演唱者沒有特別的印象,但他的嗓音和這首歌的意境好接近,有那麼一股滄桑和惆悵 … 呵!
 
另外,整首歌的節奏就是讓人想要一邊隨著旋律輕輕地搖擺著,但又同時陷入自己的回憶中,在間奏的時候,也會跟著他一起唱 "like a rock"  … 對吧!?
 
回去一定要點這一首的啦!!!!!!!我好想享受那懶懶地坐著,聽著台上的歌聲,或是隨著這節奏輕輕搖擺的感覺 … 呵呵~~
