"Long Lost Penpal" 是由一位瑞典籍的歌手 Annika Norlin 所唱的歌曲,她的英文藝名是 Hello Saferide,瑞典文則是 Säkert!。

"Long Lost Penpal"收錄在她的最新專輯「為你介紹…安全上路」(Introducing…Hello Saferide) 裡,最近常在廣播中聽到,很喜歡它的曲子和旋律,有種溫暖、平靜的感覺;不過這首歌的歌詞內容對我來說就不是那麼討喜了。

可是我還蠻喜歡 Hello Saferide 清新溫厚的聲音,時快時慢的旋律,或是空心吉它搖擺小民謠,或是聽起來慵懶爵士,搭上她的音樂,可以閉上眼睛,放心。(博客來)

Hello Saferide 的曲風很有她的獨特性,獨樹一格的歌詞也很精采,很有 Style,就如同博客來對她這張專輯的介紹一樣:「溫柔甜膩的聲音可以狂暴的說出自己的不爽,輕柔婉語也可以具有威脅性,而神經質也是因為愛你。這些歌曲雖悲傷卻不沉重,但卻能讓我們感覺到冷漠的外在世界不再重要。」

Hello
Do you remember me
I am your long lost pen pal
It must have been ten years ago we last wrote
I don't really know what happened
I guess life came in the way
Let me know if you're still alive
Let me know if you ever used that knife or not 


Hello
Yes I remember you
I've got a husband and two children now
I work as an accountant and make fairly good money
I still have your letters, you used a pink pen to write them
And you would comfort me
when my tears would stain the ink
And I would send you mix tapes with Kate Bush on 


I have to admit I sometimes lied in those letters
Tried to make life better than it was
I still wasn't kissed at sixteen
And I still need a friend


There was this letter
I never told you this back then
But it would be fair to say it saved my life
I sat in the window
The only one left out from a party again
Pretty sure I didn't have a single friend
Then I checked the mailbox


Dear long lost penpal
I was lying the whole time
I'm really a 46 years old man named Luke
I have three children
and a wife, she doesn't care
And I hope you don't resent me
And I hope you do not hate me
For trying to find my way back to what it's like to be young


I have to admit I sometimes lied in those letters
Tried to make life better than it was
I still wasn't kissed at sixteen
And I still need a friend
