Long Lost Penpal

那些写信的日子 已不复在
就好像以前的卡带 录影机带
已经是过去式的了

可是那些日子所带给我们的
快乐与感动
悲伤与期盼

都填满了我们的岁月
说是流逝 也不见得

也许是拥有着。

多真挚感动的一首歌
Hello Saferide - Long Lost Penpal

Hello
Do you remember me
I am your long lost pen pal
It must have been ten years ago we last wrote
I don't really know what happened
I guess life came in the way
Let me know if you're still alive
Let me know if you ever used that knife or not


Hello
Yes I remember you
I've got a husband and two children now
I work as an accountant and make fairly good money
I still have your letters, you used a pink pen to write them
And you would comfort me
when my tears would stain the ink
And I would send you mix tapes with Kate Bush on

I have to admit I sometimes lied in those letters
Tried to make life better than it was
I still wasn't kissed at sixteen
And I still need a friend

There was this letter
I never told you this back then
But it would be fair to say it saved my life
I sat in the window
The only one left out from a party again
Pretty sure I didn't have a single friend
Then I checked the mailbox

Dear long lost penpal
I was lying the whole time
I'm really a 46 years old man named Luke
I have three children
and a wife, she doesn't care
And I hope you don't resent me
And I hope you do not hate me
For trying to find my way back to what it's like to be young

I have to admit I sometimes lied in those letters
Tried to make life better than it was
I still wasn't kissed at sixteen
And I still need a friend

对咯。以前收到信的喜悦,超棒的。现在用到邮差的只有明信片了。

收信的滋味,现代人都不懂得。
