”We are Warriors” Honor the Workers Amid Coronavirus Pandemic - Avril Lavigne



歌曲介紹Background and Cause


"We Are Warriors" is a song by Canadian singer Avril Lavigne released on April 24, 2020, for digital download by the BMG Rights Management. A re-recording of the final track—originally titled "Warrior"—from her sixth studio album Head Above Water (2019), Lavigne released the song as a charity single to support Project HOPE during the COVID-19 pandemic.


〈We Are Warriors〉是Avril Lavigne前一張專輯《Head Above Water》的最後一首歌曲〈Warriors〉的重錄版,為了感謝在新冠肺炎肆虐下仍舊堅守崗位為人類奮鬥的人們,包括醫護人員、消防員、郵差、警員,這些將自己置身在危險中,只為了讓大家在這個嚴峻的時刻能有個依靠。〈We Are Warriors〉的收益將捐獻給 Project Hope,一個幫助醫護人員度過這次疫情的慈善基金會。



Project HOPE

For more than 60 years, Project HOPE has transformed the health and well-being of people and communities around the world. We work on the front lines of the world’s health challenges, partnering hand-in-hand with communities, health care workers and public health systems to ensure sustainable change.


歌曲賞析Composition

The original tune was written about Lavigne’s battle with Lyme disease and, as she has found immense strength in the tune herself in the past, she thought it would be the perfect gift to those who need some comfort right now. “I changed it from ‘I’m a warrior’ to ‘we are warriors,’” she explains. She hopes that those risking their lives to save others during the pandemic can find some power in lines like: “Cause we are warriors, we’ll fight for our lives. Like soldiers all through the night.”


這首歌原先的版本〈Warriors〉是關於Avril Lavigne與疾病奮鬥的過程,她就像戰士一樣徹夜對抗病魔,不放棄也堅信自己不會被擊倒。當時她從這首歌得到了許多力量,因此,她認為這首歌是送給那些需要安慰的人的最好的禮物。而在〈We Are Warriors〉中,Avril 把歌詞稍做修改,將主詞從「我」改成了「我們」,希望在疫情期間仍冒著性命拯救他人的人能夠從這首歌得到慰藉,也象徵著在這個共同抵禦疫情的時刻,我們就像戰士一般,會奮戰到底永不放棄。
