Bridge Over Troubled Water: Relief for Haiti

with one comment

 

At the Grammy’s a week or so ago, Mary J. Blige and Andrea Bocelli performed a version of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” to benefit the Haitian Relief Effort. The proceeds of the songs (as sold on iTunes) goes 100% toward aiding Haiti. It was a glorious melding of voices that seem to be opposite ideals of each other. The sultry soulful voice of Blige and the angelic voice of Bocelli blended together as if to state that no matter what our differences are we can stand united as a world community to help and defend those in bad places.

“Bridge Over Troubled Water”

(Andrea)
Sei hai paura
Piangera’
E dentro gli’occhi tuoi
la ….
Il correrera’
e’ l’asiugero’….
Il sole rivertrai
Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down.

(Mary)
When you’re down and out, when you’re on the street
When evening falls, when it falls so hard I will comfort you.
I’ll take your part.

When darkness comes, oh yeah, and pain is all, all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down.
(Andrea) I will lay me down, (Mary) I will lay me down

(Both)
Sail on silver girl, sail on by.
Your time has come to shine
(Andrea) All you dreams, (Mary) All those dreams are on their way.

(Both) See how they shine.
(Mary) Oh-oh
If you need a friend, if you need a friend…

Like a bridge over troubled water,

I will lay me down, I will lay me down.

(Both) Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
I will ease your mind
I will ease your mind
I will ease your mind
I will ease your mind
I will ease your mind.

(Both) I WILL EASE YOUR MIND.(Mary) I will ease your mind.

If for no other reason than buying a beautiful version of a classic song, I would suggest purchasing this song from iTunes. It’s a message of hope, love, and sincerity.
