Mark Knopfler ~ Brothers in Arms

Mark Knopfler Promo Tour - AVO Session Basel, Switzerland 12.11.2007

1982年,英國與亞根廷爆發~福克蘭群島戰役,長達七十四天的福克蘭戰爭令英國255名戰仕陣亡(當中有8名香港英籍港裔英軍);Mark Knopfler 於1985年創作這首反戰的好歌 ,亦是Mark所屬樂隊Dire Straits名曲,揀選這3個版本是我的至愛。

Mark Knopfler performing one of the best verions ever of "Brothers in Arms" during "Music for Montserrat", live from Royal Albert Hall, London - 15 September 1997.

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
