由Best Audiophile Voices Selection聽到Salena Jones的版本, 被那種抑鬱無助無奈的感覺深深觸動. 在You-Tube找到原唱Barbara Striesand+Neil Diamond的版本, 感受到的卻是淋漓盡致的痛. 另外找到Shirley Bassey的版本, 愛恨交纏, 大有肝腸寸斷之感.

同一首歌不同版本的痛, 都可以有這麼多種.

You don’t bring me flowers

You don’t bring me flowers
You don’t sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When you come thru the door
At the end of the day

I remember when
You couldn’t wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after lovin’ me late at night
When it’s good for you
And you’re feelin’ alright
Well you just roll over
And turn out the light
And you don’t bring me flowers anymore

It used to be so natural
To talk about forever
But “used to be’s" don’t count anymore
They just lay on the floor
’til we sweep them away

And baby, i remember
All the things you taught me
I learned how to laugh
And i learned how to cry
Well i leared how to love
Even learned how to lie
You’d think i could learn
How to tell you goodbye
you don’t bring me flowers anymore

When you think I could learn
how to tell you goodbye
you don’t say you need me
and you don’t sing me love songs
you don’t bring me flowers anymore
