Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, "Tell Him"

수록앨범 : Higher Ground (1997) / Let's Talk About Love (1997)


정환이가 신발사러 가는데 같이 갔다가 백화점이 문을 닫아서 허탕쳤던 날,
교보에 들렀다 '이제 그냥 사 버려야지'하고 드디어 Let's Talk About Love를 사버렸죠. *^^*
진작 사려고 했었지만 때를 기다리다가 앨범이 나온지 5년이 지나서야... -_-ㆀ
이 곡에서는 바브라 스트라이잰드와 셀린 디옹이 한치의 양보 없이 서로의 가창력을 뽐내고 있습니다.
물론 바브라는 나이가 나이인지라... 뭐 약간 밀리는 것 같긴 하지만. ;;;
노래를 만든 Walter Afanasieff는 미다스의 손이라고 해도 좋을만큼 수많은 곡을 히트시킨 프로듀서랍니다.



Tell Him
Music and lyrics by Linda Thompson, Walter Afanasieff and David Foster

I'm scared
So afraid to show I care
Will he think me weak
If I tremble when I speak
What if
There's another one he's thinking of
Maybe he's in love
I'd feel like a fool
Life can be so cruel
I don't know what to do

I've been there
With my heart out in my hand
But what you must understand
You can't let the chance
To love him pass you by

Tell him
Tell him that the sun and moon rise in his eyes
Reach out to him
And whisper
Tender words so soft and sweet
Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself

Touch him
With the gentleness you feel inside
Your love can't be denied
The truth will set you free
You'll have what's meant to be
All in time you'll see

I love him (and show him)
Of that much I can be sure (hold him close to you)
I don't think I could endure
If I let him walk away
When I have so much to say


Love is light that surely glows
In the hearts of those who know
It's a steady flame that grows
Feed the fire with all the passion you can show
Tonight love will assume its place
This memory time cannot erase
Your faith will lead love where it has to go


Never let him go
