Baby, can I hold you- Tracy Chapman

Sáng thứ 7, nghe Tracy Chapman. Những giai điệu buồn bã của một cô gái da đen sinh sống trong một khu ổ chuột tối tăm, nghèo khổ với rất ít hy vọng cho tương lai.

Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like sorry like sorry

Forgive me
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like forgive me forgive me

But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you’d be mine

I love you
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like I love you I love you


  • Một bài hát về thân phận bế tắc của những người da đen nghèo khổ chìm đắm trong một cái "vicious circle". Bên cạnh nỗi buồn vẫn lấp loé những tia hy vọng vào một cuộc sống tốt hơn "And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone"

    You got a fast car
    I want a ticket to anywhere
    Maybe we make a deal
    Maybe together we can get somewhere

    Anyplace is better
    Starting from zero got nothing to lose
    Maybe we’ll make something
    But me myself I got nothing to prove

    You got a fast car
    And I got a plan to get us out of here
    I been working at the convenience store
    Managed to save just a little bit of money
    We won’t have to drive too far
    Just ’cross the border and into the city
    You and I can both get jobs
    And finally see what it means to be living

    You see my old man’s got a problem
    He live with the bottle that’s the way it is
    He says his body’s too old for working
    I say his body’s too young to look like his
    My mama went off and left him
    She wanted more from life than he could give
    I said somebody’s got to take care of him
    So I quit school and that’s what I did

    You got a fast car
    But is it fast enough so we can fly away
    We gotta make a decision
    We leave tonight or live and die this way

    I remember we were driving driving in your car
    The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You got a fast car
    And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
    You still ain’t got a job
    And I work in a market as a checkout girl
    I know things will get better
    You’ll find work and I’ll get promoted
    We’ll move out of the shelter
    Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
    You got a fast car
    And I got a job that pays all our bills
    You stay out drinking late at the bar
    See more of your friends than you do of your kids
    I’d always hoped for better
    Thought maybe together you and me would find it
    I got no plans I ain’t going nowhere
    So take your fast car and keep on driving

    You got a fast car
    But is it fast enough so you can fly away
    You gotta make a decision
    You leave tonight or live and die this way

  • Hôm nay chạy xuống Boston chơi, đi ngang qua khu Harvard Square. Trời nắng ấm nên người ở nơi đó đông nghẹt, có vài người street performers biểu diển for free giữa tiếng kèn xe ồn ào...ngày xưa Tracy Chapman cũng từ nơi đó mà được music producer chú ý đến. Hình như là ngày xưa cô ta perform ở trong hầm của trạm xe subway ngay tại Harvard Square.

  • With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content
    I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

  • I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

  • Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
