木匠兄妹在 1974 年似乎降溫了一些, 這一年他們沒有出新的專輯, 僅管還是有歌曲跑上了前 100 名, 卻都沒有跑進前 10 名。"Top Of The World"、"Please Mr. Postman" 都只到第 11 名。不過這一年木匠兄妹還是很忙碌, 木匠兄妹有了第一世的世界巡迴表演。並且在各地獲得好評。"Jambalaya (On the Bayou)" 在日本上了排行榜第 30 名, 在英國、荷蘭也都賣的很好。
1975 年發行 Horizon 專輯。終於在去年底發行的 "Please Mr. Postman" 一舉攻下排行榜第一名。緊接著另一首 "Only Yesterday" 的發行, 也上了排行榜第四名。
今天來介紹這首在 1975 年全美熱門榜第 4 名, 抒情榜冠軍, 英國金榜第 7 名的 "只有昨日 Only Yesterday" 。這應該是一首不錯告別 2009 年的歌曲...
祝大家新年快樂。明年, 我們仍然會持續介紹各種好聽的音樂給大家, 歡迎大家持續鎖定喲。
After long enough of being alone,
everyone must face their share of loneliness.
In my own time nobody knew
the pain I was goin' through.
Waitin' was all my heart could do.
Hope was all I had until you came,
maybe you can't see how much you mean to me.
You were the dawn breaking the night,
the promise of morning light
filling the world surroundin' me.
When I hold you, baby, baby,
feels like maybe things will be all right.
Baby, baby, your love's made me free as a song
singin' for ever.
Only yesterday I was sad and I was lonely.
You showed me the way to leave the past
and all its tears behind me.
Tomorrow may be even brighter than today,
since I threw my sadness away only yesterday.
(instrumental and vocal bridge)
I have found my home here in your arms,
nowhere else on earth I'd really rather be.
Life waits for us, share it with me,
The best is about to be,
And so much is left for us to see.
