From a distance

2012 久留里線 (8)

この半年くらい、よく口ずさんでいる歌があります。
歌詞がわかりやすいというか、覚えやすいせいもあるんでしょうけど、
ベット・ミドラーの歌唱力が引き立たせていると思います。
本家本元の歌手や他のシンガーのバージョンも聞きましたが、
わたし的には、やはり、ベット・ミドラーバージョンが一番気に入っています。
この曲の歌詞そのものも好きですね。
GODがテーマの一部になっていますが、
これは、広く我々日本人でも理解出来る語り口かなと思います。


From a distance

From a distance the world looks blue and green,
and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.

From a distance, there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace,
it's the voice of every man.

From a distance we all have enough,
and no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease,
no hungry mouths to feed.

From a distance we are instruments
marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They're the songs of every man.
God is watching us. God is watching us.


God is watching us from a distance.

From a distance you look like my friend,
even though we are at war.
From a distance I just cannot comprehend
what all this fighting is for.

From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves,
it's the heart of every man.

It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves.
This is the song of every man.
And God is watching us, God is watching us,
God is watching us from a distance.
Oh, God is watching us, God is watching.
God is watching us from a distance.
