美國靈魂樂天后[艾瑞莎富蘭克林]──R&B抒情佳作──[Willing to Forgive/願意原諒]

 

I read her letters
And I saw her picture
And I smelled her cheap perfume, hmm
It must have come from you

How could you touch her
Lay down beside her
Well, there just ain't no excuse
You shouldn't have been so loose

I saw the telephone bill
You must be out of your mind
If you think you can smooth it over
Then you're wasting your time

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget
'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time
And I guess I can go on although I must admit
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time

You're such a liar
You took her and her children
Out for the afternoon
While I was sittin' waitin' on you

How could you do it
You should've been here with me
You just couldn't do it
You had to be in the streets, uh

Well, I heard through the grapevine
You've been messin' around
When you thought you were gettin' over
That's when my baby I found, oh...
Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget
'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time (You really hurt me)
And I guess I can go on although I must admit
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time

I gave my heart, gave my time
Gave my soul 'cause love was blind
I can't explain this poor excuse
Of a man of a boy who was born to lose

I paid the rent, washed your clothes
Cooked your food and I only God knows
Only God knows why I stay with you
I guess (Guess I) I'm in love

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget
(Oh, baby, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love)
'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time
(Ooh, you really hurt me this time, baby)
And I guess I can go on although I must admit (Although I must admit)
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time
(I'm gonna mess around some time)

I gave my heart, gave my time
Gave my soul 'cause love was blind
I can't explain this poor excuse
Of a man of a boy who was born to lose

I paid the rent, I washed your clothes
Cooked your food and I only God knows
Only God knows why I stay with you
I guess (Guess I) I'm in love

Well, I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget
'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time
(Ooh, oh, baby, you hurt me, you hurt me)
And I guess I can go on although I must admit
I've been busy, busy, busy, busy thinkin' that I'm gonna mess around some time

I'm willing to forgive you but I can't forget
(I'm willin', I'm willin' and able)
'Cause you really, really, really, really hurt me this time

1980年 美國靈魂樂夫人艾瑞莎富蘭克林(Aretha Franklin)與Arista公司簽約

成功東山再起

1994年初 富蘭克林獲頒葛萊美終生持就獎

3月 52歲的艾瑞莎發行精選輯[Greatest Hits:1980-1994], 收錄在新東家的名曲 以及三首新歌(外加一首舊曲新版)

首支主打[A Deeper Love]在美國反應差強人意 但在英國卻成為Top5暢銷曲
春天時 富蘭克林推出第二主打[Willing to Forgive/願意原諒]

此曲由Babyface Daryl Simmons 合寫/製作

這是艾瑞莎跟大牌製作人娃娃臉首度合作

[Willing to Forgive]是一首中板R&B抒情曲, 展現富蘭克林溫婉的靈魂詮釋

此曲登上美國單曲榜#26 (副榜──R&B榜#5 成人抒情榜#22)

英國#1

[Greatest Hits:1980-1994]反應也不錯 在美國專輯榜拿到#67 但長賣成百萬白金唱片

英國榜#27 也拿到銀唱片

這是艾瑞莎在1990年代最成功的單曲之一
