Kelly Clarkson 於第 15 季 American Idol 動人演唱「Piece by Piece」

So beautiful and touching!

全球選秀賽事正宗創始節目「American Idol 美國偶像」,從 2002 年至今已經第 15 季,目前也確定是最後一季。2/25 晚上的前十強決賽,特別邀請目前正懷有身孕、很快將迎接她第二個寶貝小孩的首屆冠軍 Kelly Clarkson 回歸獻唱,散發母愛光輝感動全場,連男評審 Keith Urban 都落下眼淚。

演唱曲目為去年發行第七張專輯同名主打「Piece by Piece」,與葛萊美金牌製作人 Greg Kurstin 共同創作,描敘童年被父親拋棄的痛苦,而老公無私奉獻的愛給她希望,兩人承諾會一輩子守護著孩子,永不離棄。專輯收錄版本為中板流行曲風,這次現場改由鋼琴伴奏演繹,收起平常的磅礡氣勢與爆發力,透過滿滿的情感釋放堅毅力量,演唱到最後激動哽咽,令人動容。

[Intro: ]
Piece by piece
Piece by piece

[Verse 1: ]
And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your past
I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you
Begged you to want me, but you didn't want to

[Chorus: ]
But piece by piece, he collected me
Up off the ground, where you abandoned things and
Piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old
And you know, he never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me, ('cause) he loves me
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could stay

[Verse 2: ]
And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself
And now you want to come back
But your love, it isn't free, it has to be earned
Back then I didn't have anything you needed
So I was worthless


[Bridge: ]
Piece by piece

[Chorus: ]
Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
I will never leave her like you left me
And she will never have to wonder her worth
Because unlike you I'm gonna put her first
And you know...
He'll never walk away
He'll never break her heart
He'll take care of things, he'll love her
Piece by piece, he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father should be great

[Outro: ]
Piece by piece
