熊天平: 火柴天堂 Xiong Tian Ping: Matches Heaven

火柴天堂

走在寒冷下雪的夜空
卖着火柴温饱我的梦
一步步冰冻一步步寂寞
人情寒冷冰冻我的手

一包火柴燃烧我的心
寒冷夜里挡不住前行
风刺我的脸雪割我的口
拖着脚步还能走多久

有谁来买我的火柴
有谁将一根根希望全部点燃
有谁来买我的孤单
有谁来实现我想家的呼唤

每次点燃火柴微微光芒
看到希望看到梦想
看见天上的妈妈说话
她说你要勇敢你要坚强
不要害怕不要慌张
让你从此不必再流浪

每次点燃火柴微微光芒
看到希望看到梦想
看见天上的妈妈说话
她说你要勇敢你要坚强
不要害怕不要慌张
让你从此不必再流浪

妈妈牵着你的手回家
睡在温暖花开的天堂
天堂
天堂……

Matches Heaven

Walking under the cold snowing night sky
Selling matches to warm+nourish my dream
Frozen step after step – lonely step after step
The frostiness of man freezes my hands

A box of matches ignites my heart
The cold night cannot hold back advancing steps
Wind stings my face – frost cuts my mouth
Dragging my feet how long more can I walk

Who will come and buy my matches
Who will light up all of my dreams stick by stick
Who will come and buy my loneliness
Who will come and realize my refrains and dreams of home

Every time a match is lit – in its feeble glow
I see hope I see dreams
I see mother up in heaven speaking
She says “You must be brave you must be strong
Don’t be afraid don’t panic
So you’ll never have to wander ever again”

Every time a match is lit – in its feeble glow
I see hope I see dreams
I see mother up in heaven speaking
She says “You must be brave you must be strong
Don’t be afraid don’t panic
So you’ll never have to wander ever again”

Mama will hold your hand and lead you home
To sleep in the warm and blossoms-filled heaven
Heaven
Heaven……
