Safe Travel

Lisa seems to be one of the musicians who I will turn to when I am captured by depression. Her extremely warm voice and her beautiful and sunny songs are really comfortable for me as if I were back to some of my happiest memories.

I do remember that the only time I heard Lisa’s music played by others was when I was visiting the old town call “ZhuJiaJiao” (朱家角)in Shanghai, there was a souvenir shop at the corner where 《I don’t know》 is being played.

Yet another year passed.

I am looking forward for the new album of Damien Rice. It has been my greatest expectation of October. It is really a pity that Damien and Lisa broke up both in their personal relationship and music relationship(probably is the best “couple”  in music as I consider). Whatever, life never goes easy for everyone. Best wish for Damien and Lisa!

Share one song of Lisa with all of my friends; wish you a safe and happy travel 🙂

Lyrics are attached below.

“Safe Travels (Don’t Die)”

Please eat your greens
and don’t sit close to screens,
your eyes are a means to an end.
And I would be sorry if, due to your hurry,
you were hit by a lorry my friend.
Like you always say,
Safe travels, don’t die, don’t die,
safe travels, don’t die.
Don’t walk on ice, no matter how nice,
how sturdy, enticing it seems.
Please cross at the lights
and don’t start fires or fights and
don’t dabble in heights on caffeine.
Like you always say
Safe travels, don’t die, don’t die,
safe travels, don’t die.
Don’t swallow bleach
out on Sandymount beach,
I’m not sure I’d reach you in time my boy.
Please don’t bungee jump
or ignore a strange lump
and a gasoline pump’s not a toy.
Like you always say
Safe travels, don’t die, don’t die,
safe travels, don’t die.
