一向不喜歡過度商業炒作的人、事、物,但這次不得不注意到這位傳說中的蘇珊大嬸,這位剛滿50歲的歐巴桑看來不只是靠媒體炒作,她在英國歌唱節目中瞬間爆紅,如今已經連出三張專輯的她,實力相當的不錯也從唱片銷售證明這一點,看了MV、聽完她的歌聲,或許你也會和我一樣體會,長相俊秀、甜美在這個年代,真的不再是成為成功藝人的標準配備了。

You Have To Be There

What is it Lord that you want
That I am not seeing?
What in my ignorant prayers
Am I failing to say?
Never before have I questioned the truth of your being
Never once have I dared Never until today
All of a tremble I stand on the edge of confusion
Who is to save me If into the darkness I fall?
Now that I need more than ever my God to be near me
Do you hear when I call?
Are you there after all?
You have to be there, you have to My life
I have placed in thy keep
And without you I am drifting on a dark and stormy sea
You have to be there,
you have to Without you I'd drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand
And when I die will throw open his arms to receive me?
Who will forgive me and take me and show me his face?
When I go to my rest, who will watch me and wake me?
When my time comes at last, will you grant me your grace?
I am so small of this Earth,
I am nothing without you
Daring to doubt you at all turns a knife in my heart
Little by little I'm losing my way in the shadows
I am losing my hope and the world falls apart
You do have to be there, you have to My life
I have placed in thy keep
And without you I am drifting on a dark and stormy sea
You have to be there, you have to Without you
I'd drown in the deep
Too far, too far from land The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand
You have to be there, you have to
Too far, too far from land
The waters drag me down
I reach for your hand
